Make Money

Anyone ever use the survey site MyPoints?

Briana
If you've used MyPoints, w hat was your experience like? How much money were you able to earn on it? How does it compare to other survey sites? If you have used MyPoints and want the chance to be featured in a Penny Hoarder article, let me know!Read More...
I used Mypoints for a while but it wasn't as fruitful compared to other popular survey sites. Eventually I stopped using it.Read More...
@Vanessa I haven't heard of that one before. I recently started doing one called You Gov and it is similar in that it gives you surveys that you can actually finish.Read More...

@socgirl Reselling and blogging are two things I do but there are a lot of other things I do on the side as well, deliveries being one of them. Doing deliveries allows me to offset my income and catch up in other areas such as paying down debt, etc. In the future, my plan is to transition completely into making money online but for now I am thankful to have delivery work as well. I tend to like to adventure out a bit and try new things so when I come across a new way to earn some extra...Read More...

5 Things to lookout for when seeking to make money.

Nathan Taylor
Hello Penny Hoarder friends, When I started looking for a way to make more money the traditional methods of making money. I cleaned a car dealership soon after I was divorced since money was tight. That is not fun work, but it paid the bills. Well here are the 5 things to look out for when trying to make a little money at home. Work from Home sweepstakes, surveys and other types of online research and secret shopper. Here is the thing making a few dollars giving your personal information to...Read More...
Do you enjoy being outdoors? Would you like to make money going for early morning walks? Then consider providing a litter cleanup service on foot, using simple hand tools, outside commercial properties nearby. I've been doing this since 1981. I started this as a side hustle and grew it into a successful full-time business that I still operate today. Turn trash into cash!Read More...
Couldn't agree more, especially with the surveys. I notice that both @Moore Income and I have been down that road, and obviously you too @Nathan Taylor . Quite annoying to how much effort you have to apply, only to end up NOT qualifying for the survey ( for a few cents ). The effort never justifies the reward. Surveys also remind me of things like online writing and social media jobs. With sites like " Upwork ", " Guru " and " Freelancer ". Because you also have to qualify for those by means...Read More...

Save and make money!

Mo Brownies
I was debating on whether or not I should put this in the "Save money" category. However, I joined this program that will basically pay you to save money each month. Their ultimate goal is to teach people to save money. So if you are really great with saving - this will be an easy $60 bucks for you. Anyway, you basically link your bank account (an account you dont withdraw from as much will work in your favor). then for the next 6 months, you have to save at least $20 per month. each month...Read More...

Hi @Nicol welcome to the community! Sorry to hear things are rough for you, I hope things start looking up. I understand your and other's concerns about putting out personal bank details.

As a rule of thumb, as long as the site is secure/reputable and there are others who can vouch for its credibility, I will at give stuff like this a shot. If you do the research and still...Read More...

Pauly1740
I just received a postal envelope with a check from a company called "Bray Shopper Mystery Shopper with directions to send an email when I got the package.

I recommend checking those out if interested in getting into it, but be sure to do you research and if you come across any others I would love to know about them!Read More...

Have you tested any money making programs?

Deon Christie
With so many ways to make money online these days. It becomes increasingly more difficult to separate quality from hype. But not everything is hype, there are the exceptionally few programs and systems that actually work. Do share the systems you have tested, but please no URLs. A simple name will suffice and can easily be searched for in Google. Also share the results you had. I'm curious?Read More...

Make Money Delivering Food (What You Should Know)

Moore Income
I have mentioned before that I deliver food as a second part-time income, but since I have been doing it for a while now, I thought it might be helpful to share a short overview of my experience for any Penny Hoarders who may consider doing it. Key Takeaway: Delivering food is a great, flexible way to earn extra income on the side. However, it does put a lot of miles on your car so consider this before you start. Companies I Deliver With: (Please note, these are my personal opinions as a...Read More...
I'm glad this is worthwhile for you. DoorDash sounds like a good company to drive for. MyTown2Go never offered bonuses. I should've posted that we live in a city of only 50,000, and it's an hour+ drive to another city our size or larger; you're right living in a larger city would keep you busier, and the tips would be bigger than a dollar or two. Thanks for the original post; very interesting topic. :-)Read More...
@KimK it is true, depending on your location, it can really affect how much you are able to make with food delivery. Also the pay structure of the company is something to take into consideration. For example, with DoorDash, I only drive when they are offering bonus pay for delivering. So, on weekends especially, sometimes the bonus will be up to $10 per delivery. This along with delivery fee and tip means I can make around $16-$18 per delivery and most times it takes 30 min or less.Read More...

For this demonstration and purpose, I chose this subject line for a reason. Because so many people fall victim to false claims and empty promises. A marketing tactic that is sadly quite grossly over exploited, but rather effective. You may even notice quite an impressive response to this article in confirmation of the tactic’s effectiveness. But in many cases, these claims are in fact real. What they don’t tell you however is the fact that making that kind of money online will take years to...Read More...
Me too @Bonnie Squires , I tested more systems and programs than I care to recall. But it did leave me with an arsenal of knowledge to create compelling content. And yes you're quite right. My aim is to demonstrate how easy it is to fall in that trap. Idle promises is nothing more than a marketing pitch, and a rather successful one at that.Read More...

Work from home,extra income

Hey all, Chuck here, I am 63,disabled with heart and gut issues, bit I still get around pretty well. I'm looking to supplement my income with work from home jobs.I have and will work part-time at a local job that suits me. Let's share ideas!Read More...
Hi Chuck, I suggest looking into My Employment Options, a partner of the Ticket to Work government program that assists with employment opportunities for those on SSI/SSDI. They have a specific section for work-from-home jobs: https://www.myemploymentoption...inimum-requirements/ . If you don't qualify for those positions, I also suggest looking at The Penny Hoarder's work-from-home jobs portal . We post a lot of part-time remote jobs there as well. Good luck on your job hunt!Read More...
Hi Chuck! My suggestion is not so much a part time job as it is an easy way to bring in extra cash, but apps like OfferUp and LetGo help you sell used items of furniture, collectibles, etc. If you are on Facebook, Facebook Marketplace is a similar venue. Hope this helps!Read More...

Does any one make home made crafts and sells them.

I've learned to make necklaces and earring. I crochet and make digital crafts to. I all can make bows and headbands. I've loved making crafts since I was little.

I don't have any experience selling jewelry but I do sell on several marketplaces that I would recommend. eBay is always a great go-to marketplace as there are quite a few people who buy on the platform and you have a greater chance of selling used items.
