Have you ever done it? How much does it pay?
*Also, my friend said she was turned away because they couldn't find two good veins. I know I should drink plenty of water the day of. Anything else I can do to make my veins easier to access? I'm a 'hard stick'.

Edit - well, I went and did it about 7 or 8 times. Twice the needle infiltrated and I wasn't able to donate the full amount, but otherwise the process itself was uneventful. But, I am not going to do it anymore. Not only was I having lightheadedness throughout the week, but the plasma depletion was affecting my mental health negatively as well. So the extra money was nice while it lasted, but I've decided that the practice is just too risky for me.

It depends on the donation. It equaled out to 240 a month. If you are overweight you get a bit more money because they can take more. It takes a little under an hour and you go twice a week.

Thanks. We are really struggling, and I had totally forgotten that this was an option.

We made 40 the first time and 25 each time after. You can also donate twice a week.
You need to call your local center and ask them as the prices vary place to place.
Its extremely time consuming so make sure you have the time.
