How can you save for a down payment to invest in your future and still pay all your current expenses: rent, cable, internet, utilities, gas, parking, entertainment? We’re glad you asked. We’re here with some great strategies on how you can make extra cash at home.
1. Don’t delete your emails!
There’s a tool called Paribus, seen here, that will scan your emails for receipts from retailers like Amazon. When it sees that the price of a product you previously purchased goes down then you’re golden – it will automatically refund your money.
2. Want something a little more interesting? Try watching some Youtube videos!
A company called FusionCash will pay you to watch Youtube videos and their associated ads. Every time you watch one of their ads you get paid! Want to make a McDonalds run? They give you $5 just to sign up!
Internet search engines like Google and Bing typically give you very good results but not perfect ones, and that’s where human eyes come in as a search engine evaluator. You can choose your own hours and get paid above minimum wage! Learn more here!
4. For you artsy folks out there, we have another idea – sell your smartphone photos!
An app called Foap will allow you to sell the license to your photos and pay you $5 per photo. Not bad if you routinely take photos that could pass as stock photos! Learn more about Foap here.
5. Have you ever thought you had a very unique talent but weren’t quite sure what to do with it?
Never fear, we have a solution to that. A website called Fiverr lets you sell any product or service that you think people might want to purchase– relationship advice, pranks, celebrity impressions, collectibles, you name it!
