EASY Ways To Make $500 In 2016
The holidays are RIGHT around the corner. I have put together a list of great ideas to earn some extra cash just in time for the holidays.
We all have “stuff” that sits around the house for months. You know what I’m talking about. That dress that we swear we will fit into again some day. Or, those shoes that we’re sure we will need but haven’t removed the tags yet. What about that toy that your son received for his birthday that is still sitting at the top of his closet? Consider gathering it up and having a garage sale to earn extra cash. We have a garage sale twice a year. At the beginning of spring when we are “spring cleaning” and again before the holidays are in full swing. I used to sell on Ebay all the time for extra holiday money. It works.
We all have our own opinions about everything from TV shows to food to favorite vacation spots. And, companies want to know yours. Companies need our opinions to help create and/or improve products and services. Here are just a few to check out:
HARRIS POLL: Harris Poll (a nielsen company) is looking for NEW members! Simply, head on over and register for an account. Once you have registered, you MUST verify your email address and answer the initial quick survey. DO NOT SKIP THIS PART – it’s VERY IMPORTANT OR YOU WILL NOT GET OPPORTUNITIES emailed to you!
VIP VOICE: Earn CASH for every survey you complete!
MYSurvey: I’ve talked about MySurvey quite a bit on Couponers United. MySurvey is another great way to earn rewards online. I have been with MySurvey for YEARS. It is the second survey company I ever joined! And I’m still with them today. The extra money & gift cards came in handy during Christmas. They used to pay in cash-(see my pic above) but now it’s gift cards, which is still AWESOME – I gave MANY gift cards to teachers last year on Christmas & Teacher appreciation week. Those things can surely add up!!!
You may be thinking this is an oxymoron right? How is it “getting paid” when you have to spend money to get paid. What we are talking about here is, getting paid for items you already have to buy anyway. We all need groceries to survive. We’re going to buy toothpaste and soap regardless, right? How about earning back money for buying items we were purchasing daily anyway?
SWAGBUCKS: One of my faves….and SO easy to use. Simply head over to Swagbucks.com and sign up. Win points for everything you can think of. Shopping, surveys, even surfing the web! Then, turn your points into giftcards – My fave are Amazon gift cards. Want to know something awesome? I had forgotten all about Swagbucks….for about a year I didn’t use it at all. I got an email last month telling me I had points to spend. I went in…I had enough to buy $300 in Amazon gift cards. I’m not sure how that happened, but I want to let you know it’s legit!
Coupons.com: Coupons.com can save you hundreds or thousands each month with their printable coupons. Use their printable coupons to drastically reduce your grocery bill. Did you know you can EARN CASH BACK with coupons.com? Link your card over at coupons.com and you will save (without having to clip a thing) on big purchases. Or, in some cases, link your card, make your purchases, and see your cashback on your statement.
EARN EXTRA SPENDING MONEY to SHOP!
So this may not be extra money for your bills….but…. I still love this option. Anytime you shop online at places like Zulily (my fave), refer your friends, and get credit for yourself to shop. Take some time to look into companies like this. Other examples that have referral programs: American Express, Cricket Wireless, even Zaycon Chicken!!!
