I overdrew my bank account by 12 dollars and change. The fees I was socked with are over $50. I repayed the overdrawn with 12 dollars, but now I'm still overdrawn because of all the fees. Every day that I'm overdrawn,they will sock me with $50 fees, my paycheck doesn't come until Friday, so that could be $150 by then. So I need money quickly. Any ideas? I tried collecting bottles on the side of the road today (that's how I got part of the $14). I tried searching for money around the house where change usually drops and falls ( I got the rest of the $14 that way). So any ideas?

I'm sorry to hear that. There are some programs were you can earn some money online, I'm not sure if you have paypal. If you do have a paypal account I recommend DollarPays, they pay everynight by paypal. You complete offers, if you have no idea how to do this, please visit my blog: http://sweettrix-gpttips.blogspot.com . I have both the link to sign up for DollarPays and Tips on how to do offers and such. Otherwise I would say keep picking those cans and bottles up, it's hard to find money when you need it. I guess thats life, lol. Hope something works out for you. Good Luck. :)

It's the next day already. Thank you for all your advice. I guess I will just have to use my credit card to get myself out of this mess. I was trying to pay down my credit cards. This sets me back again. I tried to find more bottles yesterday, I went in all different directions and only found a few dollars worth. If I complete offecer, then don't I have to pay money in? I can't afford to pay money out right now. But I will check both your blog and the site out before I make up my mind. Thank you very much.

You should try looking around maybe parks or recreational areas where a lot of people may go and just throw their bottles and cans away. I use to pick up cans for extra cash and I would always have luck in those types of areas. You don't have to pay anything to do offers, for the trial offers you may have to pay s&h but that is about all. I just do the 100% free offers, in which most of the time you just submit the first two pages adn it gets approved. For the 100% free offers you get from $0.50-$$2.00 depending which gpt site you are a member of. I have made $12.00 in less than an hour just with free offers. I can't afford to pay money out either, but doing this brings you a little in. Thanks :)

WORD OF ADVICE! If you have an account with a Bank that will sock you with $50.00 a day in overdrawn fees, you need to SWITCH BANKS, my friend. If you need money so quickly, you better start searching your neighbors yards for loose change, also.

We had about 4 banks here. They were owned by different places. Now they keep selling out and being taken over. This last take-over, all this craziness happened. The fees and penalties went crazy. I agree with you, I need to switch banks, badly, but that won't help my current situation. It will, help, in the future. I searched inside my house, but not my yard. However, when my husband used a metal detector, last month, he didn't find any metal besides our ladder setting it off. Thank you for the advice. Take care

You could mow people's lawns or weed their gardens. Maybe someone needs some writing done. That is all I can think of, unless you have a trade or a talent that you can offer, but usually that takes time, for instance making cookies and cakes and selling them. You can possibly find illegal ways, like gambling, but that is risky. Fifty dollars seems a bit high. Is there a banking association you can write to or telephone?
