This series is all about finances. In the previous post, we mentioned several critical biblical principals that are almost commandments when dealing with money. My biggest hesitation when I speak with people about money is the idea that they'll one day they'll just wake up rich. Although a possibility, not likely. There is so much that can be done on the day to day, to help you reach financial goals.
Here is a short list on some of my favorite ways to maximize your income and earn some extra cash. If you have any extra ideas, comment them below, would love to hear them!
Companies are willing to pay money to get inside the heads of consumers. If you’re looking for how to make extra money fast, look no further. They’re free to join and free to use.
Pro Tip: Signing up for several survey sites will help you earn the most money. You’ll be eligible for more surveys, and it will allow you to pick the ones that pay the most money (helping you make the best use of your time).
Survey Junkie — Survey Junkie works much in the same way that Swagbucks does. All you have to do is sign up to be eligible for surveys. Once you complete a survey you earn a certain amount of points that you can exchange for cash paid directly to a PayPal account, or you can redeem your points for gift cards. Super simple.
Swagbucks — Perhaps the most well-known and trusted of all the survey sites, users earn “Swagbucks” (also known as SBs) for each survey they complete. Swagbucks even gives you a FREE $10 as an incentive just for signing up.
Vindale Research – Vindale Research asks for information about you in order to match you with fitting surveys. At up to $50 a pop for some surveys and a free $1 just for signing up, it pays to check in daily to see which ones are available to you. Cashouts are through PayPal.
Inbox Dollars – Cash and simplicity. Those are my two favorite parts about Inbox Dollars. After a few minutes of answering questions and watching a couple tutorial videos on how the site works, I had $5 added to my account. Good stuff.
Imagine every time you swipe your card, you could round up to the nearest dollar and invest that change towards your future. That’s exactly what Acorns does for you.
Those nickels and dimes add up, and they’re especially better than nothing if your current investment strategy is I’ll think about that later.
Aside from everyday round-ups, Acorns lets you set recurring and one-time investments, earn cash back on your everyday shopping, and rewards you for every friend or family member you refer. They’ll also give you $5 just for signing up.
