Times are tough right now, and we are coming up on fall and the start of a new school year where many families are struggling to come up with money for the extra expenses that back to school shopping brings. I thought I would put together a list of a few sites that may be able to help some of you out. Granted, none of these things are going to make you rich, and they probably won’t cover all of the expenses but they are worth spending some time on each day to earn a little extra (and every penny counts!)
– InstaGC –
This is a great one to try to earn some extra money with. First, it has a low payout (you can cash out just $1) and you get your money instantly. Once you sign up, there is a Live Sample 1 and 2 survey you can complete daily. Each one pays 105 points ($1.05) so this is $2.10 that you could be getting daily. Considering there is about a month left before school starts back (for most kids) this could be an extra $60 bucks you could make before then! Its free to sign up, and if you want to learn more, you can always read my full InstaGC Review.
– EarningStation –
EarningStation is similar to InstaGC and just like the one above they have the Live Sample Survey offers, they pay 150 SD ($1.50) on those and you can do them daily here too. In addition, right after you sign up you will be able to find some offers on the home page that are easily complete. This one shouldn’t take you much time to rack up some extra money to use towards Back to School Shopping. Just like InstaGC above, if you want to learn more you can always read my full EarningStation Review.
– LifeTap –
Granted this is a brand new app out, but it looks to have some potential already. Readers have already been commenting about how easy it looks to make money with this one. Do note that with this one you are limited in the number of offers that you can complete each day. You can cash out with 1,000 points ($10) and some people have reported cashing out multiple times in the short amount of time that this has been around.
– Shop Your Way –
This isn’t necessarily a way to make money, but it is a program from Sears and Kmart where you can earn points and then use them towards purchases while shopping online. This would be a great way to get some help with back to school clothes. They currently have over 100 different sweeps offers that you can enter, and if you spend some time entering daily, you could probably easily earn a few dollars a day to use on back to school clothes. The easiest way to do this one is probably on their app. First SIGN UP HERE and add me as your personal shopper, then download the Shop Your Way app and head over to their sweeps section and start entering. Ever 1,000 points is $1.00.
– Schoola –
Schoola is a online shop that allows you to buy both use and gently used clothing. Just signing up for this site will give you a $20 credit to use on their site! If you create a collection on their site you will earn an extra $10 as well. PLUS if you use code BACK2SVGS when you check out you will get an extra 30% off and free shipping! Refer friends to do the same and you will get $20 for each friend that signs up!
