When I was little, I remember trying to think really hard to find ways to add quarters to my piggy bank.
I was too shy to mow the neighbor’s lawn. So I just took the change every time my mom went shopping instead.
My stash grew, eventually. But definitely not at the pace I wanted it to. ?
Fast forward to today and (thankfully) I don’t have to do that anymore!
With all the different ways you can make money today (some easier than others) it’s pretty nice to be able to claim some for your own pocket by not doing much.
Here are just a few ways to supercharge your side hustle!
Hello, free money! Ebates gives you cash back when you shop through their affiliated stores.
And they are affiliated with a TON.
This means that online store you shop at? Odds are, they’re an Ebates partner. And odds are, you can get cash back!
Next time you get an itch to shop, go ahead and open an Ebates account, find your store, and start shopping.
When you check out, you’ll be able to see how much cash back you’ve earned. They even offer discount coupons on your purchases.
Click here to get started with your Ebates ‘grind’ and get a $10 sign up bonus when you spend an initial $25!
If you don’t mind answering a couple of multiple choice questions, you need to check out Swagbucks!
It’s one of the easiest ways to make money from home and earn free gift cards by doing things like shopping online, doing surveys, and watching videos.
All you have to do is open an account and you get $5 just for signing up.
If you really want to go crazy with surveys and take advantage of their $5 sign-up bonuses to earn as much as possible here are some other great options:
ThredUp is an awesome ‘send me your old clothes in return for pay’ program.
Instead of throwing the clothes you don’t use away, why not sell it to ThredUp?
You simply log in, create an account, and ask them to ship you a bag to put your clothes in.
They take care of the shipping. You reap the pay for items you wouldn’t otherwise use.
If you don’t really like taking surveys on your free time, using Ibotta is another great way to earn some easy cash.
Ibotta is an app you install on your phone (Android or IOS) and you can use to get cash back if you scan your receipt after you’ve gone for a grocery run, for example.
The cash backs can be anywhere from $0.25 to $5 depending on what you buy. The coolest part about it is that you can even get cash back on an item you used a coupon for!
Just make sure you have a Paypal account to be able to redeem your cash.
If you have a knack for teaching this side hustle might just be the one for you!
Chegg tutors start earning at $20+ an hour and can have a flexible teaching schedule.
You get paid weekly and Chegg handles sending all the students that need help to you (instead of you having to go out and look for them).
What’s great about peer to peer lending is that you are basically acting like your own mini bank as you lend a certain amount to borrowers.
When you sign up for peer-to-peer lending with LendingClub, they match you, the lender, with a borrower, and you can make some nice interest in the long run.
Check out LendingClub and see if you’d like to get started being your own mini bank!
Get motivated and start making some side income already! You’ll thank yourself in the future. ☺
