Who wouldn’t want to make an extra $100 per day, especially in these trying times! Making an extra $100 a day may sound like a lot of money, and it is, so do not expect these methods to be easy “get rich quick schemes.” But, if you are willing to work at it, even during the pandemic, there are many ways to pull down some extra cash. Here are 10 ways you could make as much as an extra $100 every day!
1. Rent Your Car to a Car Sharing App
Have you heard of Turo? If you haven’t, then listen up if you want to know about an easy way to earn some extra bucks. Turo is basically like the “Airbnb” for cars. You can rent out your car on Turo and get paid for other people to rent your car instead of them renting cars from services like Enterprise or Hertz. Depending on the market value of your car, you can easily make $100 extra a day just for letting other people drive your car.
2. Surveys and Focus Groups
Taking surveys and participating in focus groups have always been great ways to earn some extra dough. Since the pandemic, many companies have had to pause live focus groups. However, that just means there are that many more of them you can do online from the safety of your home. Check out Swagbucks and InboxDollars for paid surveys.
3. Become a Paid Activist
You can become a paid activist for Next Wave Advocacy, LLC. They run grassroots political campaigns on a variety of issues. They pay you to call people who might be interested in any of the issues at hand, such as healthcare, taxes, or basic human rights. You then help those people communicate their opinions about the issue by writing letters on their behalf and sending them to members of Congress.
4. Get Healthy, Get Paid!
How would you like to get in shape, and pull in some extra cash at the same time? HealthyWage is a site where you can take wellness challenges and win up to $10,000 for reaching your goals. You can participate in individual weight loss challenges where you set a specific goal using their calculator, or take part in jackpot challenges where you compete as an individual or as a team. If you win, you can split the jackpot. You can also take step challenges, where if you meet the goals you can split the pot of earnings.
5. Leverage All “Cash Back” Opportunities
If you are looking for some easy ways to make extra money, you have to take advantage of the many cash back sites and apps. Rakuten is one of the most popular. Some others are: BeFrugal, Dosh, and Paribus.
6. Put Your Home on Airbnb
If you have the extra space, list rooms to book in Airbnb. You can easily list rooms in good condition and good locations for $100+ a night — especially in places like New Orleans, New York or Miami!
7. Work for Instacart
With so many people stuck at home during the ongoing pandemic, many are turning to Instacart, the grocery home delivery service. They are currently hiring drivers and shoppers. Check out their website for details.
8. Sell Your Stuff Online
Ebay and Amazon are still the winners for having the ultimate “online garage sale.” And, it doesn’t have to only be your unwanted junk. You can start a business selling just about anything on Ebay. A friend of mine sells guitars on Ebay and makes $200 or more on each guitar. He’s been steadily selling about two to four a month, some months even more, which averages out to be an extra $1,000 a month.
9. Teach Online
With schools closed and everyone stuck at home, virtual classes are in demand! You can teach online using Magic Ears as long as you have a bachelor’s degree or above, and work from anywhere you want since it’s through their online teaching portal. In addition, if you have a bachelor’s degree and some teaching experience, you can also check out VIP KID. There, you could be teaching English online and getting paid up to $22 per hour.
10. Dog Walker/Pet Sitter
If you love dogs, and want to make some extra money, you need to know about this new app named “Rover.” Rover brings together dog walkers and dog sitters with dog owners in need of someone to take care of their pooch. This site is 100 percent focused on connecting you with pet owners looking for your services.
