7. Shop online. You can spend money online (and earn cash back) at some websites and apps, like Shopkick, where the more you spend, the more reward points (or "kicks") you'll get, which you can redeem for gift cards. Here's how it works: After you connect your debit or credit card with the Shopkick app, you can shop online or in stores with Shopkick's retail partners, which include Target, CVS, Marshalls, Best Buy and Amazon.com. The catch: It will take some time to pocket a significant amount. While you might get 500 points for buying an item or doing a task, like walking into a store (you can earn kicks just for simply walking into some shops), 500 points may translate to a $2 Target gift card. With that said, if you’re looking to gradually grow your savings by shopping at retailers you already visit, it may be worthwhile to download the app.
For phones/tablets: Check out this beginners guide if you need help with specs. Various places go on sale, and it's hard to recommend a single place. A few places to check out would be Walmart, Best Buy, Tracfone, Straight Talk, and Amazon. The best time of year to get cheap devices is around Black Friday, but stuff goes on sale throughout the year. You can also get devices on eBay and C7Recycle but do take note that these are often used/refurbished devices and they may not last as long. Sometimes it's cheaper in the long run to just buy new devices.
MySurvey. This site offers an easy-to-use dashboard, a steady stream of surveys and a decent qualification rate — 28.89%. However, we encountered numerous issues with the site, which made the survey-taking experience generally poor. The disqualification policy was unclear and the 1,000-point minimum cash-out requirement was hard to hit. Check out our MySurvey review to learn more.
I am so grateful and loved to see your article as I was hunting for one like yours. It is well written and appreciated. Thank you. I Drive a taxi for a living, but sodium deficiency in my blood forced me to stop driving. I get nasty dizziness attacks while driving. Passengers go nuts when I stop the car and go take two glass of salt water to stop the dizziness. So, I stopped driving and am trying out online internet jobs for a living. Do pass on any good legitimate websites you may know out there for online form filing, content writing, or data entry to earn a square meal. Please help. Thanks.

This is where it can all go downhill quickly.  In the pressure to make as many pennies out of a nickel, a lot of research corporations will not just sell your answers but the data associated with it.  Details that you provide when taking paid surveys such as your name, address, age range can all be attached together quickly to fulfill a lot of larger companies' requests for information (RFI).
"Hello, you're receiving this payment since you participated in the tracking code task.Many participants felt led to believe they would be paid $10. To prevent false submissions, I had put in a measure to pay $.18 per validated code. The measure's mention in the text was not up-front and center, and I failed to communicate my payment plan effectively -- especially with the title simplified as "$10 task". I'm very sorry for this.As part of the /r/beermoney community, it was never my intention for people to feel cheated -- especially since this was to be a recurring task on /r/beermoney. However, it's clear I failed here.Over 300 people participated, and I'm paying everyone $5 to mitigate some of the damage I've done.I plan to post more <5min copy/paste tasks in the future, and I will make absolute sure the payment terms are clear.I appreciate each of you for participating.Please feel free to send questions/feedback to me at /u/jollyroger."
After that initial "qualifying for the good stuff" batch of low pay jobs, it becomes more a question of your qualifications rather than number of approved jobs. It took me maybe two weeks from initially starting to get a decent batch of quals and good income. I very quickly had days where I made $50-$100 for 2 to 3 hours of work. However, I also had days where I made almost nothing because you are very much at the mercy of what is posted when you're working.
As I have stated in my other posts, this is not a definitive list of everything a person can do online by any means. Do your own research on the subs I list, use Google, ask other people, and find what works for you. What I talk about works well for me, my family, and my schedule. Below I will explain why I chose this as a way to make money, provide a quick recap of the revenue streams that I have found to work, and provide payment proof for what I can.

While you play, the app works in the background and transfers small sums from your checking account into a high-yield Blast savings account based on “triggers” you set — things like the number of opponents you defeat or enemy bases you destroy. You can earn extra cash by completing “missions” that allow you to test new games or take familiar games to the next level.
Is it a survey? If it's a raffle, you will just get downvoted to oblivion here. Most people here don't like raffles. If it's a guaranteed payout and pays decently, then it will be well received here. However, I don't recommend posting it on here. Unfortunately, there are a lot of scammers here who will try to do your survey multiple times. I suggest taking it to a different subreddit, or an alternative site such as mTurk.
Freelance work online can be good work, my company hires freelancers to proofread things and there's various other similar jobs out there like that for various other tasks too. Upwork is one such website for instance. I think they bought elance and they used to be called odesk, I don't like them too much, but you can see if there are other sites out there too. The challenge is getting steady work as a freelancer.

Scammers use a diverse variety of methods to allure and dupe unsuspecting victims. Some ads and offers look so real that even the most seasoned internet veterans can be tricked. However, many scams target people new to the market who may be more susceptible to “get rich quick” schemes because they're unaware of what you can reasonably make taking surveys. It is incredibly uncommon to be offered more than $10 to complete a 20 minute survey. Not that one offering that or more is definitely a scam, it's just important to be cautious. While some experienced and well credited survey takers receive legitimate offers paying that pay big money, if you're new to survey taking you should definitely steer clear of anyone offering you hundreds to complete a survey.


A brand new way of selling t-shirts has arrived online, and sites like Teespring allow users to sell shirts that are of a great quality and don’t get created until there are enough buyers interested in the product, sort of like a shirt-on-demand business. Earnings for the campaigns can be discerned via the site’s data about the amount of shirts sold and the price per item.
I grew up dirt poor. I have tried to show this information to friends and family to help them climb out of poverty, but none of them want to take me up on the offer. They would rather sit around and complain that everything isn't getting done for them, rather than go out and earn money for themselves. So I decided to help strangers on the internet, instead. It gives me an altruistic sense of happiness and fulfillment to help other people who are willing to do things for themselves.
Edited to add when you redeem merchandise or items that ship to your house it says it’ll take 14-30 days. But I asked support Digital gift cards are 3 days and often less! It was confusing cause my digital gift card said it’ll process in three buisness days but when I click on details it shows my shipping address and says 14-30 days but that’s only if I’m having something shipped to home which they ship prizes free if you choose something other than a gift card.
Alternatively, you might need to register with HMRC as newly self-employed, but if you're just doing a few for fun, you might not. It's worth giving them a ring on 0300 200 3500 to check if you're not sure. You need to register, so make sure you do so by the end of the third calendar month after you've started – or you could face an automatic £100 penalty.
I personally invest anywhere from 20 to 30 hours a week doing these sites, on top of my day job. Some days I will make $20 all day, and others I will make over $200. I prefer this, as opposed to a second job, because I can pay partial attention to a laptop and 'clock-out' when I want to focus on family or Netflix, rather than having to listen to another boss everyday, worry about getting fired, and deal with more people. This works better for my temperament and my preferences.

Survey Club has been offering online paid surveys since 2005, and in the fast paced every changing world of the web that’s a reassuringly long amount of time. They are a bit of an acquired taste, in that they specialise in long, detailed surveys for high end clients rather than the quick and cheerful consumer surveys that you may be more familiar with. Whilst this does mean that you may have to commit a bit more time, it does mean that if you have the patience to persevere with them they pay more money than most survey and reward sites. They also offer local taste tests (see what I said about ‘an acquired taste’?), and secret shopper opportunities.

There's a few sites that I use daily to make roughly $400 a month for very little work. /r/beermoney is a lot of help for me. I mainly use Swagbucks, Perktv, Instagc, and Bing rewards. Swagbucks and Perk let you run advertisements on your phone to make $15+ a day. Bing rewards is done by using bing as a search engine and will make roughly $5 every 20 days per account with a maximum of 5 accounts per household.

In today’s ever-changing reality our bosses are more prone to hire freelancers as it’s cost-effective, time-consuming, and allows to connect with employees from all over the world. Start your journey toward self-employment with a single step. Pick one or several from the endless list of freelancing platforms and create a profile. Consider signing up for more popular ones, like Freelancer, Upwork, Toptal, PeoplePerHour and such. Make sure to collaborate with employees or agencies that suit your standards to avoid further dissatisfaction and provide them with quality work. So, this was another recipe to help you make money at home.

I know that I-say and many others on this list are available in the U.S. As a quick word of caution, if you sign up for these/start taking surveys, actually be honest with your responses. Not just because it's more accurate for the researchers, but because a lot of these sites have technology to blacklist you if you fill out the surveys too quickly or they can tell you're not actually paying attention.
Hop onto the iPoll survey site, and you’ll see a cheerful cartoon of a man walking his dog while thinking about products. Their boast is that thanks to its web, iPhone and Android platforms, you can complete surveys at home, in the office, at the beach, or on a walk. I put that to the test. This is one of the easiest to use survey sites on a mobile phone, and that’s because the surveys offered are sharp and quick, and the site itself is easy to navigate and use, whatever platform you’re using it on. This is a good choice for people whose online time is mainly spent on their cell phone.
Global Test Market is a decent standard of what you're getting yourself involved in.  Their practices are not any more or less shady or reputable than almost any online venue – survey or otherwise.  Just like Facebook, when you identify yourself accurately with Global Test Market, you can expect them to use that information in any way possible to make a penny.  The great news is they inform you and ask for consent first.
Thanks for getting the book. Like I said, I wanted to make it free, but Amazon wouldn't let me, so I made it as cheap as I could. Either way, I will make a $0.35 royalty from your purchase, so I definitely do appreciate it. Please follow up and let me know if any of the info I have already discussed, or stuff in the book, is beneficial or helpful to you!

Swagbucks is legit, but they are sort of a middle man for market research companies - they aren't a research company themselves, rather they sell access to their panel (users) to other research companies as-needed. That's why if you use SwagBucks and take surveys you'll see different types of surveys (in terms of page design and layout) and notice that you're being redirected all over the place before you start taking the survey. This is becoming more common though. (And on a side note, because they're a middle man, they're taking a cut of the rewards - whereas you're maybe making 48 points (cents) taking a survey, people from other panels might be making 75 cents on that very same survey, or something like that.) Other sites that are legit, in no particular order -
Whether you have a website or are still dreaming up ideas for a blog, you can also look into affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing, you partner with brands and businesses within the content of your website. If you mention a product or service, you link to that produce or service using a unique affiliate code you received when you signed up for that particular affiliate program. From there, you’ll make money any time someone buys a product or service through your link.
Last but not least, you can also earn money online by building an online community, although the monetization strategies you can pursue will vary a lot depending on your goals. You can build a community with a blog, for example. You can also build an online forum and charge people for membership. You could even build up a Facebook group and use your influence there to sell and promote products.

InboxDollars. New users get a $5 bonus after confirming their email address with InboxDollars. But that didn’t make up for how little we earned per hour while taking surveys — 41 cents, the lowest rate among the 12 sites we tested. On occasion, instead of sending us surveys, the site directed us to promotions that required our address, phone number and birthdate. Read our InboxDollars review.

I reside in Jamaica and I am at a disadvantage in securing paid surveys because of my location as the so-called first world countries receive all the choice survey sites leaving the crumbs that fall from the Master’s table. The survey field needs to be levelled because the advent of I. T capability the world is just one community everyone is aware of what goes on everywhere.
As well as filling in the familiar surveys, you can sign up to complete free and paid offers, which is how many users say they make the bulk of their CashCrate money. In these cases companies will pay you to sign up to their website, or to try out the service they offer, such as a financial credit check. These are often quick, straightforward ways to earn a few bucks. As the name suggests, paid offers require you to pay out to claim the offer or to sign up for the service, but what you get back will cover this and add a small profit on top. If you’re signing up for a monthly service though, make sure to note in your calendar when to cancel it or you might find yourself out of pocket as they auto-renew each month.

Consider selling in lots. A lot is a collection of similar items that is sold in a group. For example, if you have a collection of books, magazines or similar pieces of jewelry, consider selling them all at once in a lot. You many not make as much money as you would have if you sold each item separately. However, the items will likely sell more quickly in a lot than they would individually.[29]
"Over the last few years, there has been a huge trend of companies conducting online focus groups. Because of technology and the fact that most people have a webcam, people can get paid for their opinions without even leaving their house. This is a really simple and fun way for people to make extra money online," says Danny DiGiovanni, owner of FindFocusGroups.com. While you may not want to quit your day job, for a side gig, it could work out well. For instance, DiGiovanni says that some recent online paid focus groups on his site have included a focus group about tutors for parents that paid $100, a focus group about taxes that paid $100 and a 30-minute webcam interview about baby products that paid $50.
For my family. I live in New York City, but my grandchildren live in Rochester. Swagbucks helps pay for me to visit them every 3 weeks. I 'm also able to buy them gifts using Amazon gift cards, and help out with diapers and personal care items using CVS gift cards. I even use Target gift cards to help out with grocery shopping. Swagbucks has been a blessing and I can't live without it!

You can make money online just have to learn the basics I do affiliate marketing and make commissions. You just have to know how to find the right products and be able to drive traffic( people clicking on the link) to the offer. I still have a full time job and now use the extra money pay off my wife college loans. It does relieve some stress by having another income stream for our family

Robert said he did an average of 4-6 of these gigs per year for a while depending on his schedule and the work involved. The best part is, he charged a flat rate that usually worked out to around $100 per hour. And remember, this was pay he was earning to advise people on the best ways to use social media tools like Facebook and Pinterest to grow their brands.

A blog highlights your technical ability and showcases your ability to write blog posts. Your blog can be about different topics than those you write about for your clients. In fact, it should be on a topic that interests you. Visitors will see that you can not only write, but you can also build an online community. A good blog has the potential to earn you many referrals for more clients.[24]

We have all said I need money. But did you know you can make free cash by taking internet surveys and reading e-mails? Yes, you can make money online for free! These programs have been helping people in need of cash and money for years now. These are not get rich quick schemes. No, but you will be able to make some extra dollars in your spare time from your computer. All you have to give is a few minutes of your time; you do not need to pay anything.

Those are my top two that I use every day. I run SwagBucks on my old Android phone throughout the day and the turk while that is running. However there is no reason you can't do the SwagBucks surveys. They tend to pay a decent amount and there are always tons available. I only Turk because it is cash to pay bills with. If you are just looking for a few extra dollars to spend on non-bills then SwagBucks works just fine. Plus no Social security number and taxes to do. they also have a variety of gift cards you can cash out with. They have amazon and walmart and all sorts of common places. I buy groceries with the walmart gift cards. I love how fast swagbucks adds up too.
Hi, I live in South Africa and have made quite a few US dollars from various sites over the past few months. For me, Toluna is definitely the best, and they offer nearly daily surveys. You don’t always qualify, but when you do the survey reward is quite substantial. I have never had problems from them and at regular intervals receive money in my PayPal account. However, I cannot say the same of Panel Station. Even though I have sent various requests asking why I have not been paid they do not even have the courtesy, so far, to answer any of my mail – whether they were submitted on the site or sent via e-mail to their “South African” address. I must say that I am very disappointed with them, as they are recommended by quite a few other sites, as well as your own.
-EDIT- The apps were TapTapSee and CamFind. When I was doing the tagging, the company was under "Image Searcher Inc." which seems to have turned into "CloudSight". The job was posted on craigslist a couple years back. Basically you would log in to their website (tagpics.net) and receive images people took for identification, you would have a few seconds to come up with a detailed description of what the photo was of. You were allowed to cash out once you got over $80. I have no idea how they do things now. Searching the apps brought me to their website, with a description that makes it seem like it may be automated now? I'm honestly not sure. This was late 2013 and early 2014 when I did it. If anyone has any luck, let me know. All I have are a few old emails from them. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
I am so confused using this site! I made an account, connected it to my paypal, got UHRS 1 and 2-everything. On the actual clickworker website, I only see one job, comparing web search results. Somehow, I got to MarketPlace but wants to me "qualify" for each job. By the time I qualify, and go back, the job is gone...Am I even doing this right? I've been playing around for about an hour and when I went back to my clickworker account, I still have $0. Any help would be great!

This! Handmade is now a selling point in titles and tags on Etsy due to guys like op. Right now Etsy is a side hussle for me, everything handmade right from my studio. The road that op is on is a good way to get banned by Etsy as mass produced items can only come from Etsy approved manufactoring sites. You can do 100,000 if you expand your workshop and hire more to handmake items. I target a niche, run facebook ads, shoot all the images myself, and listings. When I expand I will outsource most of that so I am able to creat and have others help. These other workers will go on the etsy page as my contributors. Etsy will catch on to Op as I dont think shareholder wish to turn it into a cheaper Ebay/shopify. But folks like Op do me a favor by adding value to handmade and my product without me doing anything but adding the tag "Handmade", "Not from China" to my titles and tags.
