  1. Survey Taking

It is an easy source of income, anybody can do it and you can do it anywhere and at any time. The trick is finding quality websites to pull work from. This is where most people go wrong, choosing the wrong websites. Here are a few right websites:

    1.
    Review products, take surveys and even keep some of the products that you review. Earn up to $100 per survey. Over 5 million has been paid out.


    2.
    One of the biggest and most respected online survey companies. They have a large inventory of surveys that you can take and they let you earn in many other ways. You can take surveys, watch videos, surf the internet, etc. They have a way to monetize just about everything you do online.


    When survey taking, be sure to cash out your money often and cherry pick the best paying surveys first. This is why it is important to have many survey websites to get work from.
  2.  Selling Old Jewelry
    Gold and silver is a big business. You have probably seen the billboards and heard the radio advertisements. Be sure to shop your jewelry around a bit because not everyone pays the same rate.
  3. Search Your Home
    You might be surprised at just how much money is hiding in your home. Check the drawers and couch cushions. Check your laundry for money left in your pockets. Also, do not forget your car or truck. It would not be hard to find an extra $20 or $40 just laying around. It might not be all the money that you need but it will get you started.
  4. Sell Clothing
    There are a lot of resell shops around such as Plato’s Closet. They buy your designer goods and can be an easy source of additional funds. Don’t go selling your whole wardrobe but selling a pair of jeans that are too tight or loose may not be bad.
  5. Take Stuff Back
    If you have bought anything in the last few weeks to a month, you might be able to take it back, even without a receipt. Many stores have liberal return policies and some will not require a receipt. They might not need one at all or can use your credit card to look up the purchase.
  6. Credit Card Advances
    Speaking of credit cards, you might be able to take a cash advance from your credit card. Bring it in to the bank and get the cash you need. Do note that the interest rate is almost always higher on cash advances.
  7.  Collect Money Owed You
    Do any of your friends owe you money? If so, you might want to call in those debts. Avoid strong-arm tactics but explain that you are in a bind and could use the money back now.
  8. Sell Books & CD’s
    Places like Half Price Books will buy your old books, cds, dvds, records and magazines. You probably have boxes of this stuff lying around taking up space. Sell it and make some quick cash.
  9. Get A 401K Loan
    If you have money in your 401K account, why not take out a loan. It will cost you way less than other lending options and it is your money.
  10. Take A Payday Loan Out
    This should be used as a last resort because fees for these loans are quite high. Interest rates can be in the 300 plus percent range. The only good thing about these loans is that they fund quick and are easy to qualify for. All you need is a job and a checking account.
  11. Recycle Cans & Metal
    Start collecting those aluminum cans and sell any scrap metal like copper that you might have in your garage. You won’t make a ton of money but you will be recycling and getting a bunch of junk out of your home.
  12. Do Odd Jobs
    Ask friends and family if they need any work done. Simple things like lawn care, fence staining, painting and all the other things people hate to do can make you money. Post your skills on Craigslist and see who bites.
  13. Sell Gift Cards
    A lot of places like pawnshops and payday loan stores will buy your unused giftcards. Got a card to Chili’s that you will never use? Bring it in and get some cash for it.
  14. Get A Payday Advance

Part time jobs are a fact of life for many in Oceanside but are something that we would rather not have to put up with. They take you away from your friends and family, make you work odd hours and often, pay very little. Most are like this, but there is an exception, survey taking. Yep, you can make a nice additional income taking surveys and it is not that hard, if you know what you are doing. I am not going to lie to you and say that you will get rich, but if you want to make a few extra hundred dollars in your spare time, you can do it. Here is what you need to know.

The biggest problem that people run into is scam websites. There are a lot of them out there looking to charge you for access or to just feed you advertisements. Luckily, they are easy to spot. If a site has advertisements at all, run. If they want to charge you access, run. Here are a few good sites that we like. Always choose ones similar to these.

 

1.
Review products, take surveys and even keep some of the products that you review. Earn up to $100 per survey. Over 5 million has been paid out.


2.
One of the biggest and most respected online survey companies. They have a large inventory of surveys that you can take and they let you earn in many other ways. You can take surveys, watch videos, surf the internet, etc. They have a way to monetize just about everything you do online.

Finding the websites is just the beginning. You also need to learn how to earn the rates for your work. This is where people also run into trouble, they do not know how to get the high paying work.

Finding The Highest Paying Surveys

The first thing that you need to do is confirm your email. Many people skip this step and want to jump right into the work. Truth is though that many survey websites sometimes hold back the good surveys for those that are confirmed. Take a minute to confirm your email.

Next, you need to look at the dollar per minute rate of the survey. Most sites will list the payout of the survey and the estimated time it takes to complete the survey. Divide the dollar amount by the time in minutes to get your rate. Choose the ones with the highest rate first. This might not be the highest paying survey. You might make more money doing a bunch of $5 surveys rather than a longer $20 one.

Finally, make use of as many websites as you can. Go to the websites and choose the highest paying surveys and do them and then move on to the next website. Cherry picking the best surveys on each website will get you the best return. This is why it is so important to have as many good survey websites in your pocket.

  • Look at the time and reward of a survey. Many websites will give you an estimated time to take the survey as well as the reward. Divide the reward by the estimated time to determine which pays you the most for your time. You may be better off doing three 5 minute surveys instead of one higher paying 20 minute survey.
  • Avoid any survey website that wants to charge you for access. No matter what they promise, these sites are rarely worth your time or money. Only choose sites with free access.
