I need real quick money!

My internet is about to be shut off, I'm trying to do surveys and a bunch of crap, but nothing seems to pay enough, quick enough. I need about $50 USD to get this paid. Good news is once its paid I don't have to worry about it for 3 months, but for now, my deadline is Monday and I'm just not making enough fast enough. Those of you that get paid $40 an hour to do surveys, what site is that? I need one that just has unlimited surveys or something. Waiting for them to come in the mailbox is a disappointment and I more often than not don't qualify to do them. So how do you do it?

You won't have the money my Monday, but I get paid very quickly by Mechanical Turk (http://mturk.com) You can sign up there to do small tasks for small amounts of cash. The ones directly from Amazon do not usually pay that quickly, but, geospacial vision, casting words, and lyons all have a reputation for quick pay. Some of the pay is, undoubtably, very low for the work requested, but, it's money when you are desperate. The best thing to do may be for you to find something quick outside the house. Two days of day labor will net more than $50. If you have sporting goods or CDs or DVDs you can part with, you may be able to get enough from that, too, by selling to a store that buys and sells them. Do you have anything you can sell to a pawn shop? Maybe sell plasma? I hope this helps! Good luck with everything.

I just wanted to add that I have a bunch of quickie money-making ideas in my blog: http://sideshowcash.blogspot.com. Some are online, some off-line. In any case, I hope this helps!

I wish I could go out and work for any days, but aside from childcare costs for my son, I'm 7 months pregnant, and mine tend to be delicate ones. I can't do a whole lot during them because of the risks. I just want to do this all these penny any deals long enough to get some up to invest elsewhere, but there are a couple bills that need help right now and I was just hoping someone had something good up their sleeve. I'll find a way to pay it, but dang, I hate the stress of not knowing where the money is coming from! lol

Ack, that does throw a wrench in things, doesn't it! Have you looked into becoming a chacha guide? That's another that is good for instant bits of pay. Once you are a guide and have their debit card, you can get money instantly from your account.

good luck with that. Short of robbing a bank or borrowing from someone, it is very hard to come by quick money anywhere. Especially on the net..Everything is so slow on here when it comes to payment.
