So, I have a credit card payment on the 17th of April and I need to come up with 800 dollars. I have about 600 dollars so far...I just need to come up with 200 more. Any ideas? Besides doing anything like babysitting or lawn care...not an option. And I am not interested in money making websites...that will take too long. Thanks in advance.

See if you own something that will sell, that is all I can come up with.

I would go through the stuff you don't need anymore and then either sell it on ebay or do something like a yard sale/pawn shop. Also if its nice clothes there is a store called Plato's Closet were they'll actually buy your clothes from you. Now you may not want to babysit or do lawn care but seriously putting yourself that close to the deadline you might just have to. Most jobs will make you wait the 2 weeks to get paid so that won't help you so it has to be side work. Now if you have a job you can go to one of those cash advance places and see if they'll be able to advance you the money you'll be making but thats just taking out an additional loan. Also why is your credit card payment so high? I know normally payments are around $50 and thats with a couple thousand in debt.

If you are good at website designing, software development, programming, writing or administrative skills, you can make 200$ by working as a freelancer at any of the sites that provide this. If you lack these skills, then you can run errands, work part time in some place like a hotel or restaurant or just come up with other small things that will help you get $200.

That might be a little hard. 200 dollars in 8 days ! You might want to get a job that pays you in advance, sell some gold ? There are many ways, online earning is not always long term, there are some legit investment sites that promise profits within hours. Hope you best of luck

You can find a good investment site that you feel safe to put your money there, and then earn a huge amount of money. I'm sure that can work for you.

see if you have stuff you don't need and try to pawn it for cash, or sell some stuff by holding a garage sale

What about dog walking? Elderly people sometimes need errands done... If you live in an apartment building, you could put a notice on the board. Have a small garage sale... anything. Car wash?
