There must be a way to earn a few dollars here and there?
A way where these dollars add up.. something you can do that doesn’t require training and specific knowledge and something where you can start earning right away.
I have spent months and months trawling the internet and testing to see if I can find the best programs out there where you can earn the biggest bang for your time. And I am only going to suggest those where you can actually earn real money, I mean physical money, not those that you can earn rewards for, or gift vouchers.
There are millions of those. But you want hard cash, right?
We all know fitting in earning extra money into a daily schedule can be tiring. So if you can find a bit of work that you can pick up here and there and complete here and there without much concentration. And somewhere where you can work in front of the TV in the evening, and most importantly, something you can do at home.
The important thing to note is that you are not going to make a full time income doing this. There are much better ways to do this where you can build a successful online business. Go in with your eyes open and know it is about earning extra cash and you won’t be disappointed.
What sorts of things am I recommending?
The sites I am recommending for you to use include doing some of the following tasks. So if this is what you are looking for, then read on:
- taking surveys,
- visiting websites,
- filling out a form,
- sharing something on social media
- providing your opinions
- viewing a video
- clicking a link
- and many many more.
A couple of tips before you get started
- My first tip for all of these programs is if you haven’t got one, set yourself up with a new email address where everything you need to look at goes. Register with this address when you join the programs. This way your real email box won’t get clogged up with promotional messages and you can sign away for free without limits and watch the money build up.
- If you are looking at a few of these websites at a time, have each window open on a different tab. Before you start, you can assess what is there so that you can make the most of your time by working out which ones you should prioritise first.
- Don’t pay to sign up to any of these things. I have done this with one or two in the past. SO not worth it!!
So here are the websites I recommend you join and get started with
Find it here: www.swagbucks.com (if you join here, you get $5 to start)
Swagbucks is one of the US best known sites for earning money while you do what you were going to do anyway on the internet.
You earn Swagbucks. Similar to inbox dollars you will earn swag backs by doing a variety of tasks. including surfing the web, surveys, playing games, watching videos and answering questions.
The rewards can turn into cash or gift cards, whatever you prefer and Swagbucks have some top partners out there such as amazon, walmart, you get the like.
Some of the rewards are quite good so it’s worth playing around and seeing what sorts of tasks you like. And if you want to know the best way to work with swagbucks, check out this article where I show you how I made $400 quite easily.
Find it here: www.inboxdollars.com
There is a whole raft of things you can earn money for doing at this website and it’s quite fun. I like that it has variety as that makes the tasks more interesting. And rather than earning in gift voucers, who wants that, you can earn in real honest money. Yeah, we like that!
So what sorts of things can you do?
You can take surveys, sign up to offers, click on email links, play games, visit websites, fill in a form, redeem coupons, search the internet. They always have a lot going on. This is my first stop off.
And best of all you get $5 for just signing up. Please note this is only open to US, Canada and UK (as InboxPounds – they will show you where to go)
If you want to know more, have a look at my review of this Inbox dollars.

Fushion cash is similar again to the Inboxdollars. But the payouts are a little higher. Like Inboxdollars you get $5 to sign up. You might have to sign up for a few things, but this is what your spare email address is for. It doesn’t matter if it is flooded with junk mail.
There is quite a range of tasks here and payout can go up to as much as $30 per task.
And some of these offers ask you to give you credit card details, I would steer clear of those, email address is fine. So look for tasks that say ‘no cc’.

This website is a place where you can try new products for free.
You get $1 for signing up and can earn money, sometimes up to $30 for taking surveys watching videos, surfing the web and loads more. It’s a nice site to use and in my experience has a lot of tasks readily available.
Payment is of course in cash. Make sure when you are taking any tasks, ie watching video that you do actually watch it. If you click off the page or can’t answer the question at the end then you don’t qualify. This has happened to me. It’s quite frustrating! (I get distracted easily and was trying to do something else at the same time!)
I have removed this one as my recommendation but I wanted to still keep it in here, so that people know NOT to join. See my review, now updated, about this business.
Find it here: www.opinionoutpost.com
Opinion Outpost is all about surveys.
If you want to make money online, I suggest only using this option as part of a mix with some of the others above. The reason is that there are not always surveys available to complete and sometimes you can waste time trying to qualify for them before you actually can earn any money.. You want to be able to dip in and out of this when surveys that are applicable you become available.
Doing survey after survey can get dull, so mixing this up with some of the other tasks above means that you can have more variety
I have written a review of Opinion Outpost here if you want to read more.
What sort of money can you make this way?
Well of course that depends on two things. How much time you have to give to it, and what tasks are available. This is why I have suggested using a few sites together so that you get the best of all of them.
It is possible to earn a decent amount, around $200-400 a month with these types of websites. As long as you have the patience for it and are happy with that level of income.
But what if you want more?
This is a great idea to fill a gap I think but it will never become a passive income. You will always have to be there clicking away, and the hours you need to do this will never change. And lets be honest there is quite a chance that after a few months the thought of doing this day in and day out will be exhausting and lets face it dull dull dull.
So if you are looking for something to fill a gap, then perfect.
if you want more. If you want something that stimulates your mind, a business of your own, that eventually will become a passive income and earn you way more than doing it this way, then I suggest you take a look at my number 1 home business idea which will teach you exactly how to build your own online business from scratch and grow and grow to be something really worthwhile.
If you have any comments on the ideas in this article, I would love to hear them. Have you tried them before and what did you think? Anything else to add to the mix of websites that are good for earning money?
