What's your favorite way to earn extra money?

I know that there are a ton of different side jobs and things that people do to make extra money. If you do a quick search online, you can easily find thousands of different ways to make money. Personally, I do some blogging, I am a member of Swagbucks and Inboxdollars (I have earned over $100 this year from this one alone). These things help me get paid to view emails, take surveys, watch videos and other different things. It's pretty easy to earn money with these. Also, I use Ibotta which is an app to use if you are shopping for groceries, clothes and other things. You can get cash back in your Paypal account or you can get gift cards. I love this app! It paid for our family trip to the beach back in the summer and also paid for a weekend at the beach for Thanksgiving. You may not make a lot of money from it but if you're already getting groceries you might as well use it. What ways do you use to make money?

I used to use Swagbucks but forgot about I lately. I don't buy enough for Ibotta to be worth it.

Yeah...my use of Swagbucks has fallen by the wayside in recent months. I have tried getting back into it lately though. Ibotta is my favorite way of earning money now. I'm addicted to it! I also use coupons so I save money that way and then get cash back on the same items.

@supercalifredge Last year, I earned approximately $280 so it was a very good year for me....I'm looking to earn even more this year with it. I haven't done much by way of referrals to Ibotta, but I am going to focus on that a little more this year because that and bonuses are the way to make the most money.

That’s why I am here looking for a way to make money online. All the site I have been to you have to paid. I need a job here you earn then you paid. I thought about a blogging but I have no skill in that either. Getting it set up is my hardest part for me. Know I want to take the time to learn how to blog if I can find someone who want to give me pointer. Without costing before I learn.

Blogging definitely takes a lot of time, effort and investment to get it up and going. And even then, it takes some time to really start earning money from it. I enjoy it though.

@wongchoiyee It can be difficult sometimes to come up with things write on a consistent basis. In order to stay fresh with my ideas, I do a lot of research online to see what is trending or what could be trending in the near future.

I am quickly getting back into the swing of things here on Mylot and enjoying my time here. I tried Slice the Pie before but never really got into it that much.

I also use Checkout 51. It's a pretty good app and I have earned some money on that, but not as much as I have on Ibotta.

Unfortunately, things have been so hectic I have not been able to spend as much time developing and growing my blog but that is a goal of mine for this year.

myLot, Swagbucks, Crowdtap and an app on my phone are normally how I make extra money or amazon gift cards. They are easy and most of them don't take much time to do them either.

I do Toluna surveys, I cash out about usd5 a month, and some other voucher gift survey companies that takes me one year to claim these vouchers.

I have seen the Toluna surveys but never used them. I may have to check them out sometime soon.

I do Swagbucks which is not working too well for me. I also do Clixsense. I need to get back to online writing.

I do Swagbucks primarily when I purchase things online so I do get a percentage back. But I haven't been doing too much online shopping lately, so those earnings are not doing too good. Inboxdollars seems to be doing the best for me along with Ibotta. I have earned the most money through those 2 things this year. I honestly have been slack in my blogging so there has really been no income there. I would like to devote more time to writing in the new year though.
