10 cents at a time

One of the survey sites I do surveys through is JD Power, and they give you 10 cents if you start a survey but don't qualify for it. While I'm appreciate of the ten cents (I know they don't have to give me anything), it does get a little frustrating after awhile when you only earn ten cents here and ten cents there. So far I've earned $19.45: $5 of it was just for joining. I've qualified for 6 surveys (out of 50) so not a great average. I need to make it to $25 before I can redeem. I am wanting to earn enough Amazon gc to buy a Kindle but obviously its not all going to happen on this site.

My goal is to get the Kindle completely free. My credit isn't good enough to qualify for the rewards credit cards that Chase offers so I need to do it through survey sites. I don't want to spend money on it, because I don't know how often I'd use it. I am more of a book person, as in holding the actual book and turning the pages. But I can see the advantages of the Kindle. We'll see how long this takes!
