5 Ways to Make Extra Cash before Christmas!

Christmas is coming very quickly! My five year old has already started to sing Jingle Bells! The Christmas toy commercials have begun. If kids are like mine, they want everything they see, even if they don’t really know what it is!

Now, my kids don’t get everything they ask for on Christmas, but the entire Christmas season is expensive. Sometimes extra cash is needed to avoid using those credit cards!

None of these are a way to get rich quick or a replacement for a full time income, but rather something small you can do for a little extra cash if you have a little extra time at home!

Here are some of my favorite ways to earn extra cash before Christmas!

  1. Mturks! Amazon Mechanical Turk
    Mturk is an Amazon company that pays people small sums of money to perform small tasks such as audio recording, data entry, and surveys. You won’t get rich doing Mturk, but if you stick with it you can make $5-10 a day from home in a couple of hours. I know that is a small pay out, but it adds up. You can quickly turn your balance into an amazon gift card or you can request a direct deposit or check!
    You can see my post about Mturks here.
  2. Swagbucks!
    I’ve been doing Swagbucks on and off for a few years now. In those years, I have earned over $600 in gift cards! Since I started on Mturks, I haven’t been using Swagbucks as often, but I still hop on a few times a week and try to earn my daily goal as often as possible! The small tasks start to add up! If I don’t have time to entirely reach my goal, I try to at least complete the activities on my to do list! You can complete surveys, watch videos, get cash back for shopping at certain stores online.
  3. Inbox Dollars
    Inbox Dollars is a lot like Swagbucks. I, personally, started with Swagbucks, so I do not use Inbox Dollars as much, however I have used it! It is set up differently than swabucks but many of the tasks are a lot swagucks. You can take surveys, do certain activities, and watch videos for points that you can exchange for gift cards!
  4. Opinion Outpost
    Opinion Outpost is a site where you take surveys for points. You can cash out through paypal or there are a few gift cards you can choose from. They also have different sweepstakes. You can check them out here.
  5. Babysitting
    Many parents will need to get out alone this Holiday season in the evenings and on weekends for different activities. If you have a little extra time on your hands and if you like children and have experience with children, offer up your services!
