Donated plasma a 3-4 years ago, I had lost one job and took a lesser paying one, so I was trying to just make a few extra bucks. You'll have to schedule an appt for a physical that they administer. You can donate 2 days a week and they have to be on the same days each week, atleast 2 days apart. It takes appr an hour once they hook you up to machine, but you may spend an hour or more waiting to go back. They will call you back each visit and ask the same health risk questions each time you go. The amount you get paid depends on your body weight. The more you weigh, the more plasma they can take. You'll see some thugs, but also people such as nurses, etc.

there is a place down the road beside krystals. i went a couple of yrs ago just to do a good thing. they were very rude and treated me like i was a bum looking for a payday. plus i got the impression that they/or the girl that did mine didnt know what they were doing. i dont really know what went wrong(because they never told me) but before i even left i had a huge bruise that went from elbow to wrist. didnt hurt, was like when they pulled the needle out they let the blood just run down my arm under the skin. when i said something about it, they acted like nothing happened. so much for trying to do a good thing.
depending on weight

Back when I was doing it, four years ago, it was $60 a week if you went two sessions a week and weighed 185 (if I remember correctly) or more. $25 the first visit and $35 the second visit.

Also, when you go for the first time, you have to take your state issued ID (driver's license), your social security card, and proof of residency (like a utility bill) addressed to the one giving plasma.
