4 Ways to Make Fun Money Without Getting a “Real Job”

4 ways to make fun money

Guest post from Miriam:

Getting a job (or a second job) isn’t always feasible… especially for parents.

Fortunately, there are many ways to bring in some additional income without leaving your kids to daycare, sitters, or nannies all the time.

1. Swagbucks and Bing Rewards.

If you are just looking for a little bit of fun money to spend, Swagbucks and/or Bing Rewards are the way to go.

Searches, videos, and surveys can earn you small gift cards to places like Amazon.com, Target, and Starbucks in just a few weeks.

Read more about how Swagbucks works here and read more about Bing Rewards here.

2. Babysitting.

If you are already caring for children at home and aren’t too overwhelmed, consider babysitting for another family. Done regularly, this kind of work can really add up.

3. Mystery Shopping.

This is a bit more involved, but signing up to do this a few times per month can easily get you $50 or more. You just need a Paypal account in order to receive the payments.

Read more about becoming a Mystery Shopper here.

4. Online Surveys.

Typically, the points received from taking these surveys take a long time to accumulate. But you can earn some fabulous rewards.

I once earned a $20 Amazon gift card; it took a while, but refusing to check on my points totals for several months made it seem much faster!

Read more about online surveys and the best companies to sign up with here.

There are many other simple, creatives ways to earn a little extra fun money without getting a “real job”, so i’d love to know…

How do you earn fun money?
