I hope you are all ready for 5 more easy hustles to add to your money making repetoire. Since it’s Tuesday, I am back with Part Six of 5 super easy side hustles for stay at home moms or just about anybody that is looking to make some money and/or gift cards for the upcoming holiday season. Since so many of these side hustles pay out daily, and most times straight to your Paypal or Dwolla account, it will help make the cost of shopping at the holidays more affordable. Let’s get this week’s hustles started.
Again, just to reiterate, make certain you set up a separate email address before starting these side hustles. You do not want your personal email inbox getting overloaded.
Part Six – 5 Super Easy Side Hustles for Stay at Home Moms to Make Money
- MintVine. MintVine is a site overflowing with surveys. This is one of my most favorable sites and one that I check into everyday to see what is available. MintVine works by applying points to your account for each survey completed. And, if by chance, you do not qualify for a particular survey, MintVine will give you a few points for your time anyway. So basically, over time, if you never get picked for a survey, you can still earn other ways. Such as completing offers, watching videos, taking quizzes and even buying local deals that are available in your area. This is very similar to using Groupon. You also earn points in your account for doing profile surveys so MintVine can send you surveys that match your demographics. Since their payout to Paypal is super quick, that’s how I like to redeem my points.
- iPoll. 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. iPoll is laden with surveys to do and will keep you busy. You can take the surveys on your phone as well. You can cash out when you hit $25 to Paypal or Amazon. I believe iTunes is another reward as well. I have been with iPoll when it was named “Surveyhead” years ago. iPoll is one of my favorite ways to earn because there are always surveys available.
- Panda Research. Straight off the bat, if you don’t do any of the other side hustles I have given, do this one. Panda Research is a wonderful site that pays you $3.00 for just signing up. Yup! Then, there are surveys available immediately to do. This morning, I logged on and did one offer for $1.00 that took me about 30 seconds. Even better, before you click on a survey to do, they let you know how long the survey will take you. So if you have a minute, currently you can do a survey for $1.50 on “grilling”. Panda Research pays via Paypal on the 1st and 15th of every month.
- MySoapBox. This is a survey site only. You will need 25,000 points to cash out. MySoapBox has tons of rewards and gift cards to choose from. You will get 2000 points just for signing up and taking 30 seconds to do your profile. Each week there are a few surveys that I do qualify for and I haven’t been with this site for long, but I have cashed out once. This is a survey site that you will check into AFTER you banged out all your work on the other sites such as MintVine, iPoll, CashCrate and Ipsos, etc. I particularly like MySoapBox because of their monthly $500 contribution to charities. They give you 3 choices to vote on what charity you would like to see receive the $500.
- 20/20 Panel. 20/20 Panel is a higher paying survey company. They don’t send surveys as often as I would like, but when they do, they pay quite higher than other companies. Like at least $50! They pay via Paypal too – which is great.
More Tips for Making Money
When I first started out doing all these side hustles, I was all over the place. I didn’t have a money making system set up wisely for myself. But as I said before, over a few weeks, you will start to see what site’s surveys you seem to be qualifying for more than others. Then you will see how close your cashing out threshold is and work more on that particular site. You have to determine what sites are working for you. For instance, if a site has offers and surveys available, once you have done the surveys that are available – do a few offers to catapult you closer to cashing out or obtaining a gift card.
Also, believe it or not, keeping a notebook with all the sites you are using is helpful. I have a ledger type notebook that contains the following information on each page:
- Site name
- My user name and password
- What the redemption amount is
- How I have cashed out in the past
- If I got gift cards before and what they were
- How many points I currently have
- What redemption I’m working towards
I think it helps to see each site as your “client” and how you are going to make the most cash from them.
