Is there such a thing as "easy money"? We've all heard about elaborate get rich quick pyramid schemes, and it can make us incredibly wary of anything that promises easy earning.
The truth is, the only way to really get rich is to work hard or if you are super lucky, I suppose you could win the lottery!
That said, there are ways to earn some extra cash with minimal effort. You won't get rich, but you might be able to make enough cash to pay for gifts for family and friends throughout the year. These sites are all very reputable and I've personally used all of them off and on for several months (and earned quite a bit!). Like I said, they won't make you rich, but they can earn you some spending money!
Swagbucks-It's essentially a search engine. You use the search engine just like any other search engine, except every once in awhile you will get awarded "Swagbucks" for searching! Bank your Swagbucks to redeem for prizes. A $5 Amazon gift card is worth 450 Swagbucks. Friday's are Mega Swagbucks days and you are more likely to earn big bucks for your searching. You can also earn Swagbucks by watching videos, completing special offers, shopping and special codes that are released on occasion.
MyPoints-Very similar to Swagbucks, except you earn points. Earn points for shopping, playing online games, printing coupons, reading emails and more. Redeem your points for gift cards, donate your points to the charity of your choice, or use your points towards free airline miles.
Recyclebank– This is a bit newer to me, but still very neat! On Recyclebank you will earn points by taking special quizzes, recycling on a regular basis and watching educational videos. You can log in and see your options for earning for the day. Be sure to watch the ads on the page for earning options. Sometimes simple ads actually offer earning potential! Redeem your points for high value coupons, gift cards or special coupon codes.
All of these sites offer a bit of earning potential for you. You really get out what you put in, so don't expect to just sign up and start earning without any effort. That said, if you are active for a short time each day, you will definitely earn little bits here and there! All 3 of these sites also offer bonuses for referrals, so you will earn more if you get your friends and family to sign up under you as well.
These 3 sites can earn you easy money, but it won't necessarily be a lot of money. Every little bit helps though, and if you are online already, why not? Good luck and happy earning!
