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.
I tried Mechanical Turk fairly extensively back in the day, I'd say 3-4ish years ago (very rough guess), and gave up once I realized it was impossible to make more than, maybe, $2/hr on pointless, tedious activities, stuff like inputting receipts for 15 cents. Is there more dynamic work available now? What sorts of activities do you find yourself doing there? Do the employers pay more now?
What does that mean for you? It means Nielsen will pay you $50 a year to keep their app on your favorite internet browsing device. The app itself collects statistics on your internet usage anonymously, so you never have to worry about any data being linked to you. And the best part is, the app takes up barely any space and doesn’t slow down your phone or tablet at all!
Cash Crate is possibly the most popular survey site in the world. The strength of this program is that they are open to residents of all countries. They consistently pay out fast every month. Especially great for people from the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, India, South Africa, and even other countries that most other survey sites don't allow. They also have games where you can win points and exchange them for great prizes. You also get $1 dollar for free when you join!
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.
It may take time to build that audience that turns views into dollars. The average revenue per 1,000 YouTube views is just over $6. But with enough videos for fans to scroll through, those views can add up over time. While you’re building an audience, you could also join an affiliate program related to your channel and make money online through affiliate links in your video descriptions.
I live in New Haven and indulge in what we call "Yale Christmas". They throw away all kinds of valuable things including money when the semester ends. In the past, I have found at least 10 IPods and all kinds of really expensive clothing. North Face Coats being the most lucrative but also Polo with the tags still on, vintage army bags and blazers. I have never found one but friends have found " last year's" Mac Book Pro and all sorts of printers and other technology. I put all this stuff on Ebay. Not only Yale Christmas but I go through all kinds of junk piles during bulk pickup. Has really helped to supplement my income over the years.

Opinion Outpost. Some survey sites bombard users with information and opportunities — but not Opinion Outpost. Its simple, intuitive website enabled us to take survey after survey without much thought. As beginners, we also appreciated the site’s straightforward points system, which works out to 10 cents per point. Most importantly, we actually made some money. We averaged $1.50 per hour on Opinion Outpost and were able to cash it out on Amazon. See our Opinion Outpost review for more information.
By filling out your user profile thoroughly, you’ll be able to make sure you get invites to surveys which are actually suitable for you. There are basic qualification questions at the start of each questionnaire too, to ensure you are suited to filling it out before you get going. And you can make the most of the huge Toluna community yourself too – if you want, you can create your own polls on the site to ask people about anything and everything! It’s a nice addition to be able to get involved and have in-depth conversations with fellow users.
Since getting married, I have needed extra money for various bills and saving for things we wanted (down payment on a home). Essentially, I was just tired of barely scraping by every month after tax and savings. Because of this, I have been investing more time in all of these sites over the last 6 or 7 months and the cash flow has been steadily increasing as time goes on. I have been able to get my car paid off a little sooner (I am 3 months ahead on payments), have been able to afford more luxuries like taking the wife out on weekly dates, and have built my emergency fund to six months of bills. I am now also able to wake up and see that money came in while I slept. It has been rad.
MintVine is a cool looking paid survey site that makes it easy to complete a survey, without having to spend too long learning how to do it. One of the things I liked most about MintVine is that they offer a huge amount of ways to get paid: there’s the old favorite PayPal of course, but you can also choose Starbucks cards, Amazon and other gift cards, and even restaurant cards. Your surveys can pay for your next meal, and it’s easy to rack up points here. Some users have reported delays in receiving payments however, but this isn’t a scam and MintVine are working hard to speed up their process and iron our any glitches. If they do, they could be heading into the Survey Cool top ten in 2018.
Watch out though, I've read articles where drivers for these car services got screwed - They got into an accident on the way to a pickup. Their personal auto insurance wouldn't cover them because they were working for Uber, but Uber wouldn't cover them because they weren't transporting a passenger. When in doubt, ask your insurance agent to make sure that you are covered in all situations.
One of the great things about Survey Savvy is that they really do offer a great variety of surveys to choose from, so you won’t simply be talking about the consumer goods that you buy on a day to day basis. They have surveys on topical issues and about politics in general, but don’t worry you don’t have to be a political animal to be able to complete the survey – you just need to have an opinion. Another thing I really appreciated about survey savvy is that their surveys are short and snappy, and you can complete them within ten minutes or even less. That means you can quickly earn the points that can then be exchanged into folding cash.
Have not worked as uber driver but to me personally it likely doesn't seem worth it..as it would be a 2nd job and at late night/early morning hours..which would likely be higher risk for road accidents. And the added wear/tear of the car along with dealing with unknown ppl in a car you driving...just for me the extra pay is not worth the extra risk imo.
Playing games online: if you like playing games, why not turn the hobby into a moneymaking activity? There are tons of websites out there that reward their loyal fan base with points when the complete a game or play for a certain amount of time. These points can then be exchanged for real money. Sites are able to do this by sharing the profit they make from ads as an incentive for users to visit the site.
While you won't make a lucrative sum by selling your photos online (unless you're a gifted photographer with in-demand images), Shutterstock will pay you 25 cents every time one of your images is downloaded, according to its website. If you earn $500, then you'll receive 33 cents per download; if you earn $3,000, you'll receive 36 cents per download; and if you earn $10,000 or more, you'll receive 38 cents for every download.
