Donating plasma for extra money.
December 7, 2017 1:27pm CST
I go to a local center and donate plasma twice a week. This is plasma for medical research and they provide me with a stipend for donating. If make it for both visits, I get $75 a week. If I make it to the 6th, 7th and 8th visit in the month, I'm given a bonus per visit. Basically, providing I'm not sick and don't get any bruises that bar me from donating, I can receive an extra $360 a month. I've been using every penny from my plasma to pay bills, but today I'll take the kids to Olive Garden after my plasma donation. I have a $25 gift card my job gave me a few months ago. I'll cover the difference and the tips with my prepaid debit card that my money gets deposited on. I love that I can help the medical community and my pockets at the same time. My next few donations after this though, my payments will be applied to my electric and cell phone bill so that I can be AHEAD on my bills. Yay. There can be side effects though so while this works for me, it doesn't work for everyone as a way for extra money. Of course there are people who don't like needles so this wouldn't work for them either.

thats so great you can do that! I hope you and your kids have a great time out for dinner! see more of that awesome city! I hate needles but loved being able to help out. That plasma can save lives and does! I wish I didn't bruise easily. :( I still have one on the back of my right hand from bumping it on a door handle over a week ago!
I hear that! I don't necessarily bruise easily but when I do bruise, it seems like it lasts forever. We will actually be taking the bus to the mall in the next town over. Still, it will be fun. Plus we will be picking up tons of stuff from sears that I got free thanks to shop your way rewards points
They give back the blood and only keep the plasma in this process. Some of the side effects can including numbness in the fingers and toes, nausea, light headedness, chest pains, blood in the urine and more. They make you read a bunch of info and sign off on it.
