Are you looking for ways to make extra money without working a second job or selling your soul? I am always looking for ways to make extra money. Working a full time job doesn’t leave tons of time to spend on work from home gimmicks that don’t work. I have tried several different things to make extra money and some have worked and some have not.
Today, I want to talk to you about two online sources that I use to make money. Your not going to get rich quick or quit your full time job but it will bring in some extra money.
First I want to talk about Swagbucks. I have made several hundred dollars over the past year using Swagbucks. Depending on how much time you have to spend on it will depend on how much you can make. Some months are better for me than others but I have made enough to pay some bills with it. I run videos while I work and answer surveys. Typically I don’t spend any money unless it is something I was already going to purchase and if so then I will go through Swagbucks so I can get the extra points.
You can cash your points in for gift cards or paypal cash. It typically credits pretty fast. In addition, you can refer friends and earn from what they do. If you are not already a Swagbucks member you can go here to sign up. Again, your not going to get rich on this but it will help to bring in some extra grocery money or pay a bill.
I drink a lot of Coke, I mean way too much. A couple years ago I realized that all those numbers inside the Coke caps are for a reason, well go figure! So, I started saving my caps and having family and friends save me their caps. You sign up for a Coke account and input your points every week and as your points accrue you can cash them in for gift cards.
I use my points and get gift cards for things that I am buying for Christmas gifts like Nike gift cards, Amazon gift cards, Shutterfly and movie gift cards. I give out the movie gift cards to my kids and their girlfriends as Christmas gifts or my husband and I use them ourselves.
Typically I will use the Amazon, Nike and Shutterfly cards to order Christmas gifts so I don’t have to pay full price for them. It saves me quite a bit of money on gifts. I like the Shutterfly cards because I can get customized gifts for people. You can read the article here for how I save money on Christmas shopping.
While these two things are not going to make you rich they will bring in a little bit extra cash. I hope this helps you in making some extra money. Please feel free to comment and add any side hustle ideas that you may have.
