Get Paid to Watch Videos?


How many online videos do you watch each day? What if you were getting paid for watching them?

InboxDollars (for U.S. only) allows you to earn money for watching videos from their website. So what’s the catch?

Each video has ads. So in exchange for watching the ads, they can afford to pay you for watching. I tried it out and it definitely isn’t something that will replace your day-job, but if you love watching videos, why not get paid something for it?

And right now, you can get a $5 bonus just for confirming your email address after signing up. After signing up, just click “More” in the navigation bar, and then click the “Radio” link.


Make Money Online with Swagbucks


Swagbucks is a free site that offers a bunch of ways to earn cash, gift cards or other rewards. They’ve already given out over $90 million to date.

You can earn by answering polls, taking surveys, doing simple tasks (like giving feedback about a website), trading in old video games or books, and even playing games on their site.

I have tried it out and have received multiple payments from them, so I can attest that it is legit. While you won’t get rich doing this, to me it seems like a great way for SAHMs to make some money. Oh, and they have a $5 sign-on bonus!

And then $5 more for each month you leave it installed!

All you need to do is click the button to get the app and then you can get paid via PayPal or Amazon gift card.


Get Paid for Testing Websites


Many big companies are looking for feedback about the usability of their website.

This is where comes in. You sign up for free and then answer questions about a particular website, explaining what is good or bad, confusing or clear, etc. and then you get paid.

You have to be accepted into the program and must be 18+, but the payouts are pretty good! Their current payouts are $10-$15 per test and the tests normally take about 20 minutes.

I found the video to the right from a tester explaining how it works.


Get Paid to do Laundry


I recently found out about LaundryCare.bizwhich is a service where you can basically do laundry for others and get paid.

As you can imagine, some working moms and busy families struggle to get the laundry done and would happily pay to have someone do it for them.

This site gives you the tools and instructions needed to get started and the video to the right will tell you more!


Get Paid to Shop


Shopkickis an APP that gives you points (which can be redeemed for gift cards) just for going to your favorite stores.

You get additional points for scanning items at the stores and making purchases. They have over 11 million users across the U.S. so they must be onto something!


Gigwalk iPhone App


Gigwalkis a fairly new iPhone app that offers payment for completing simple tasks based on your location.

For example, users earn by taking pictures of a restaurant’s menu, verifying roadblocks and signage, and other simple tasks.

If you are in a big city (which typically has more opportunities) there is some decent potential with this one.


Sell Your Hair?



Have you ever considered selling your hair?

If you have long hair and are willing to chop some off (probably at least 10 inches), you can make some decent cash doing it. is a marketplace where hair buyers and sellers connect.

You can just go there and put up a quick listing to sell your hair and have interested buyers contact you.

Just from scanning the site, it looks like you could expect to earn $400+ for healthy hair.

So if you have hair you are willing to sacrifice, it may be an option!


Buy and Sell Cars for Profit


If you love cars and aren’t afraid to haggle, you could start a car flipping biz. We have a friend of the family who has done this for years.

He scours the classified listings for deals, lands a good deal and then drives the car while trying to sell it for a couple grand more. Sometimes he sells them quickly, sometimes it takes a little longer, but he gets to drives lots of cars (which he loves) and makes a nice side income as well.


Start Blogging


When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure if there was money to be made blogging but I have now been doing it full-time for 8 years so I am convinced.

It isn’t something that will provide much income quickly, but if you stick with it, it can. I wrote extensively about how to make money from a blog a few years ago so check that out and decide if that is the right path for you.


Start an ebay Business


I have experimented with starting an ebay business to see if there was money to be made. I found a supplier who provided me goods at a 50% discount and then I sold them at retail price on ebay.

I made a few hundred dollars pretty easily. I also wrote an article detailing how I did it.

While profit margins can be thin selling on ebay, there are over a million ebay businesses, so it is a viable option.

Did you know that English speakers are in high demand in Asia? As a result, many are turning to freelance English teachers using websites like

The site is basically a virtual online classroom for freelance teachers and students. Anyone can offer lessons (and set their own price) and anyone can take lessons.

From a quick scan, it looks like making $15-20/hour is a fair expectation.
