I’ve posted about my side hustles in various articles before, but here is my complete list:
Earn Gift Cards with Radial Insight!– A survey company, but hey have a second component called Receipt Rewards. I earned an almost $50 gift card over night!
Pinecone Research: Get Paid $3 per survey!– My favorite survey company. $3 per survey you complete and they only send you surveys that you already are pre-qualified for! They are always looking for 12-24 or Hispanic demographics.
My other favorite is PaidViewPoint– They only send you surveys that you qualify for, so there is no wasted time. Payout is only $15.00, so I make payout about once a month. It’s not tons of work, and every little bit helps!
My Favorite Side Hustle: Field Agent!– Seriously, I made $70 in September just by incorporating Field Agent jobs into my already needed errands. Quick, easy money.
Turn your Junk Mail into Cash! I’ve been doing this for YEARS, and I love it. You can learn all about Small Business Knowledge Center here. I just got another digital $20 Visa GC this morning (10/1/18), and I used it to charge up my Starbucks card! My third this year!
Focus Groups. I wrote about them here. They are not a constant source of money, but I do one about once a month or so, and they tend to pay $75 or more for just a few hours of your time. It’s a fun way to share your opinion with companies and earn some great money. I’m doing one in about a week- 45 minutes will pay me $50 in cash!
I also do simple tasks with Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. I transfer the earnings to my Amazon.com account. You sign up and do tasks for small amounts of money, but the money adds up fast. The tasks are quick and simple (transcription, surveys, flagging inappropriate photos). I’ve earned over $50 since February. If you want cold hard cash instead of Amazon.com credit there is an option to have money transferred to a bank account. Mechanical Turk does ask for your SSN when you sign up- you will receive a 1099- MISC at the end of the year., regardless of which option you select.
And when it’s time to shop online, I earn with:
- Earn Gift cards with Mypoints. I take surveys, click links in emails, and do all of my online shopping through Mypoints. I’ve earned $35 in GC in 2018 so far.
- Or, if the company isn’t with Mypoints, I turn to Topcashback. I’ve earned $15 with Topcashback in 2018 so far!
And of course, I use cashback apps. My full list of favs can be found here. No lie, I cash out about $50.00 a month between all of the apps downloaded onto my iPhone!
