There are a lot of ways to make a little extra money in the Vegas area. We all need a little help sometimes making ends meet so why not explore a couple of part time income options.
1) Get Money For Your Opinion Online
Companies need your opinions because that is how they adjust their marketing. They have to find out what consumers want so they can adjust the products they sell, services they provide and advertising they put forth. They need your input and are prepared to pay you for it. These days, more surveys are done online than in person because the internet is far more convenient.
One of the leaders in online surveys is Swagbucks. They have been around for years, given out hundreds of millions of dollars and are an extremely reliable source of additional income.
Right now, they are heavily recruiting and are even giving out a sign up bonus, just for registering. Claim your bonus now and get started earning some nice part time income.
More On Vegas Surveys
To get started, you simply need to register for a survey website like the one above. Choose websites that are free, never pay for access. For example Swagbucks above even pays you to sign up. Once you sign up, you will be required to confirm your email address and may be asked to fill out an optional profile. The profile will help them match surveys to you so while it may be optional, it is recommended. It is, after all, easier to do surveys that you find interesting and are about things that you know about.
Now that you are all registered, you can start taking paid studies. They will be well labeled with category, completion time and payout. Choose the ones that are the shortest and pay the most and work your way down. Simply take the payout and divide it by the minutes estimated to take it. You will soon see that the highest paying surveys might not make you the most money per minute. Likewise, the shortest surveys might not be the best use of time.
When you complete a survey, you will be paid in points. Sounds like a pain but these points are easily converted into cards and even cash. Usually every 100 points is a dollar but know the rules on your site so that you are clear. When you reach the minimum cash out level, be sure to pull your money. I know of no websites that allow you to earn more by saving up points, so cash out early and often.
Money From Paid Studies
By now you are probably wondering how much you can make a month doing this. Most people in Las Vegas will find that they can easily make an additional $100 to $400 a month in their part time. If you are motivated and willing to do the work, you should be able to do more. It may not sound like a lot but remember that you can do this work any time you want and any where you want. It makes for a great part time Vegas job.
Why Take Paid Studies
- They are convenient.
You can do surveys anywhere and anytime. All that you need is an internet connection and you do not even need a computer. You can use your tablet or even your smartphone. It is a terrific way to monetize your down time.
- The work is easy to get.
Nobody is turned down for survey work. If you are reading this, you are qualified and can start working immediately. All you need is a few good websites like the ones at the top of the page.
- The work is unlimited.
You can do as much or as little work as you like. The choice is up to you. Do a couple surveys or a couple dozen. How much do you want to earn?
2) Focus Group Jobs In Las Vegas
Focus groups are always a popular choice for extra money. People are very interested about taking part in focus groups. The reason for this is that they pay the most. Of course, this high pay and high demand means that the jobs are hard to get. Most people who do them regularly have an inside connection like a friend in the market research firm. Still, you might be able to land one of these jobs, especially if you are of a unique demographic that is in demand. To get started, you will need to add your name to as many company databases as you can. Below you will find some local companies to check on and more information on this type of work.

About Focus Groups
So what exactly do you do at a focus group? Well, the Vegas market research company will call you and give you a time to meet and a location, usually their facility. When you arrive, you will be placed in a group and all of you will be presented with a product or service to review. You will be asked about your thoughts including pros and cons that you see in the item. These events are almost always recorded so don’t be shy and dress nicely. Try to participate well and be professional. This could make you more likely to get future work.
Focus Group Money
Like I said earlier, you will be paid well for these events. In Las Vegas, you can expect to earn somewhere between $30 and $90 for the average focus group. Good money but do not grow to depend on it. Sometimes it is feast or famine in this industry. You could get a bunch of groups to attend all at once and then nothing for months. This is why it is a good idea to also look into paid studies to supplement your income. Do the online work for regular money in your spare time and then treat the focus groups like bonus money.
3) Collect & Sell Metal
Recyclers in Las Vegas are always looking for scrap metal to buy. The first thing that comes to mind to you is probably aluminum cans. While this is a high demand item, there are more metals that are in need. Stainless steel, copper, brass, all have value. Collect these metals and take them to a recycler and cash in big time.
But, where do you find these items to recycle. Most of them will be found in the trash pile. Know when local neighborhoods have bulk recycling days and take a little road trip. People will throw out all kinds of metal and you can gran it and cash in. You will make money and as a side benefit, you will keep items out of the garbage dump.
Where To Sell Scrap Metal
Now, where to sell this metal. There are a number of places that would be happy to take your metal. Here are a few:
