There are all kinds of ways to make money from home from call centers to freelancing to transcribing, but I’m not talking about those today. What I’m going to tell you about are the extra money deals that take very little effort and make you some money. (not job jobs)
Swagbucks:*The Swagbucks website has been around for many years and yes, you could spend a lot of time on there and it wouldn’t be worth your time, but here’s what I do with Swagbucks that makes me between $25 – $50 per month.
- Shop through Swagbucks ~ click through sb to where you want to shop and if they are participating, you earn Swagbucks back. Most stores participate, by the way.
- Do the daily list: take the poll, watch the crave, watch a watch (it makes sense, I swear), search, take a survey (or just attempt), look at the deal of the day and try a discover thing (if I feel like it.)
- Do searches on the internet through sb
- redeem swag codes
At least 10 minutes a day on up. I would never spend more than 30 minutes on her because the benefits don’t outweigh the costs. Whenever you earn enough points, you can turn those into cash or giftcards.
Pinecone Research: They do surveys and product testing whenever you qualify for a survey that takes about 15 minutes, on average, you earn $3. If you are selected to test a product, you get another $3 for the follow up survey plus the free product. You can also submit your monthly Amazon purchase report and earn another $3. You can turn the points you earn (300 per) into cash, which is what I do and have it paid through paypal, or giftcards or other items.
Survey Savvy:* This is another survey site and the payouts for the surveys vary. The time also varies but averages between 15 and 20 minutes. They also have an option to let them monitor your devices for which they pay $5 per for doing nothing. In addition, they have studies which vary in length and payout, but I have made between $30 and $65 for each study. Definitely worth your time. If you do the automatic monitor device thing, you get paid once a month. When you complete surveys, it usually takes them a week or two to credit your account. The cool thing is you can cash out your account as low as a dollar (and no survey I’ve seen is below a dollar) and they mail you a check.
Smart App: (in the google play store under Smart Panel App Verto Analysis) This is a download on your devices that monitors what you do and requires a swipe screen on your phone. No big deal and takes zero time. The company pays out $5 per month with a $15 bonus every quarter for basically doing nothing. You will get an email once a month that you have reward dollars and you can just transfer them to your Paypal or Amazon.
Slidejoy: This is an app, in Google Play under Slidejoy ~ Lock Screen Cash, that you download on your phone, similar to the Smart App. You earn points just by having it on your phone and you have the option to earn more points by doing surveys, app downloads and scratch-offs, but you don’t have to. By doing nothing extra, I convert $4 a month, but I could easily earn more without taking up much of my time. The points become available monthly and you can choose to be paid directly to Paypal or Amazon or trade them for various giftcards.
There are many many sites out there where you can make pennies or even dollars, but the payout threshold takes too long or the effort is too much to be worth your time or mine. Believe me, I’ve tried many and either the payout threshold was too high or it took way to long to earn anything at all. So, I recommend sticking with these five to bring in extra money for bills or extras or whathaveyous for little time investment.
Do you know of any extra money makers that don’t take a lot of time? Please share in the comments!
*These are referral links ~ and on these, you can make extra money that way too (without doing a darn thing.)
