In my earlier blogging posts, I did a series on how stay at home moms can make money online from home. They are all outlined below:
While I still use most if not all of the websites mentioned in those posts, today I am sharing the top 10 ways I make extra money for Christmas. For the past few years, we spent $0 on Christmas gifts. And, we have a big extended family and our son who is 12 is into expensive “toys” now such as Playstation games, etc. And yet again, we will not be spending a dime on Christmas. How do we do it?
I make it a point to use the websites below daily to help me earn gift cards and money for Christmas throughout the year. And I have been doing it for years. I do not spend hours a day online, but I find that the small increments of time I devote throughout the day, amounts to many, many gift cards and as a result, us not having to put out any extra money during the gift giving season. These websites will help you earn free gift cards to use for Christmas gifts for your kids or for anyone on your holiday shopping list.
Most of the websites outlined above in the Moms Making Money from Home series, pay out daily in the form of cash or gift cards. So, if you get started now, you can definitely have quite a few gift cards under your belt by Christmas. And, since almost all are delivered electronically, you have them right away.
10 Easy Ways I Make Money for Christmas Without Leaving the House
This website has tons of different ways to make money online. Before beginning with SuperPay.Me, read these helpful hints here. This site has a gargantuan amount of surveys to do and they pay instantly to Paypal.
PrizeRebel is the first website I log onto in the morning. They are a reward site that pays you in points for doing surveys, signing up for simple offers (including freebies), watching a video and doing mindless tasks. The points add up very quickly and you can use them for Paypal cash, Amazon gift cards, online game gift certificates and more.
Quick Rewards gives you many opportunities to earn money from home. You earn gift cards by answering trivia questions, printing coupons, signing up for offers, playing games, reading emails, watching videos, clicking on links and other mindless ways. There is never a shortage of ways to make money on Quick Rewards.
I could write an entire book about my love for Swagbucks, but I’ll save you time and just direct you to this post I did a few months back.
Who wants to take a test AND get cash for taking it? trymyUI sends out web user “tests” a couple times a week or maybe more, but they fill up quick so make sure you check in often. Basically, you test out websites before they go live and your feedback helps the testers smooth out the kinks and glitches that may occur beforehand. Also, payment is every Friday via Paypal.
Also, here is a post I did that outlines quite a few website usability testing companies that you can use to make money online from home.
Paid Viewpoint is a wonderful website that offers quick surveys. Perfect for when you only have a few minutes of time to make some money. Check this website multiple times throughout the day. What’s even better is they pay you for every question you answer. So, make sure that you check in throughout the day even on weekends.
The name says it all, this site will send you tons of surveys. But the key is to do all your profiles. Which are worth .50¢ each. Plus you get paid for signing up and even confirming your email address. So right off the bat, before doing anything, you are getting paid.
Product Report Card is one of my absolute favorites. Again, right away, you start making money with them. You will be paid .25¢ for completing ALL of their profile surveys. Then you get paid $1.00 for taking a couple minutes to fill out the Health & Wellness profile. Then, you get $5 for simply verifying your account by clicking the link in their email. You will get lots of surveys from Product Report Card – so you’ll be busy. Another awesome way to earn with Product Report Card is by registering your household products. Things like all your home appliances, baby furniture and gear, your car information and more. By doing this, you become eligible to earn by doing in-home product reviews and surveys.
mTurk is ran by Amazon.com and has been around for years. Basically you make money by doing HITs on the site. HITs are just a different word for tasks. Tasks on mTurk are prolific and are there for the taking whenever you want cash. Tasks can range from tagging photos, to making sure phone numbers on a business card are correct, to doing surveys and beyond. Also, only choose HITs that you are sure you have time to complete since there is a set time given to complete the task. There is never a shortage of jobs to be done here. All my earnings are in the form of gift cards – convenient and quick.
This is another site that will keep you busy with surveys. I can literally walk away from the computer, come back and see more surveys added. You can take the surveys on your phone as well. iPoll is one of my favorite ways to earn because there is money just sitting there waiting for you to earn it.
