The best survey site I've found is Prolific Academic. They prequalify you so you don't get kicked out of a survey 20 minutes into it. It's probably the best deal in terms of hours spent per dollar since you get paid for just about every survey you take.

@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.

I used Mypoints for a while but it wasn't as fruitful compared to other popular survey sites. Eventually I stopped using it.

I try different side hustles at all times I keep 3 or 4 going to allow me more money to pay down my credit card balances. They have gotten out of control and some of them even got closed on me. After having 5 years of perfect payment history those credit cards overwhelmed me. I do adult CNA work for a disabled family member. I do the errands and the shopping part.

What is the payment like, do you have the commercial insurance and or charge GST/ state, provincial taxes?

Re: Instacart

Moore Income ·
@rtms77 They pay by direct deposit into your linked bank account, or you can cash out instantly for a small fee directly to a debit card. As far as I am aware, they do not provide any type of insurance. What type of insurance you need would probably be a question for your auto insurance company. You are responsible for your own taxes with Instacart. Because you are considered a sub-contractor, you get paid the full amount and then have to pay your own taxes.

So I did Instacart for about 3 1/2 years and this is my review. It’s an easy way to make extra money on your own schedule similar to other gigs such as Postmates, Uber/Lyft, etc. As others have mentioned don’t expect to get rich on this job. My first two years I was making an extra $500-$1000+/month but it’s slowed down since then dramatically. I slowed down over the past year. This is due in part to the pay going way down due to saturation of too many shoppers on the platform/fluctuations...

I’ve worked Lyft, Uber, Postmates, Uber Eats, a food delivery service called Caviar (similar to Eat24 and Grubhub), and yes, Instacart. In evaluating them, I compared the average money I made (including tips) to the time spent actually working for it (not just time spent using the apps, which can be misleading). It came out to: Lyft, $26/hr; Uber, $25/hr; Postmates, $17/hr; Caviar & Uber Eats, $15/hr; and Instacart, $12/hr. Those numbers can be a little misleading, because they don’t...

I've been doing Instacart for about two years. My honest review: + Schedule flexibility. + No people (just groceries) in my car. + Most people tip well, especially on rainy days. + DEFINITELY rounds out the budget - cash-flowed a trip to Disneyland two years ago and I've paid down $8000 in debt over the last year. + I commute over an hour to my primary job, so picking up a batch or two on my way home makes my commute (gas and tolls) tax deductible. + I make enough from my primary job to not...

Very interesting reviews. I use Instacart to have my groceries shopped and delivered, and have thought about working with them when I get a car, but I thought more seriously about it... NOT!! I don't do my own grocery shopping!! LOL I like having the groceries delivered, but my shoppers/drivers tend to shop neighborhood stores. Normally, I would not. Some are very inexperienced as shoppers and what you get may not be exactly what you ordered. Food prices are too expensive (can't take...

Since I started delivering for Instacart some time ago, they have implemented something in their app that allows you to pick up any extra orders that people scheduled to work can't do. Since then, I have never scheduled myself for shifts but rather just picked up any orders that I had time to do. I really like the flexibility this allows and it means you can choose to do delivery only orders or do orders that include having to shop for the items. This way, if the distance for delivery is too...

Thanks! estatesales.net can be really helpful for this. You can buy in as large or small a quantity that way. Additionally, writing to consignment stores in your area and asking if they would be interested in selling any items in bulk that haven't sold and the original donors/customers have surrendered, can be a wonderful way! Obviously, garage sales too.

@Adam Work from home jobs can indeed sometimes be to good to be true. One need to be so careful these days. Quite a bit of hype going on, which is nothing but hot air and empty promises. Although I'm not quite familiar with the mentioned sites in your outstanding post. I have however worked with sites like Upwork, Guru and Freelancer. But job applications get approved based on your resume. Mostly online writing and social media jobs.

Sounds like you are doing a great job! I don't sell muchmuch clot but I have personally sold things on both eBay and Mercari. eBay is great because they have such a huge audience, but it does take a bit of a learning curve and the fees can be a lot. Mercari was a great place to sell until they suspended my account randomly will no explanation. I tried to get them to unsuspend me but they never would.

A lot of companies are making it possible to work from home. Especially with the the generational shift in our work force. I personally work for a company that was very traditional, but since I do digital marketing, I could do it from anywhere. I moved to be near my fiance for 6 months before we got married and since my job didn't want to lose me, they made it possible to work from home. Now there is someone else in the company who works part time from home. Sometimes, all you gotta do is ask.

Re: How I Paid Off My Student Loans By Selling on eBay

@Carlos Ortega I personally do a lot more estimating. I do however have a scale which I use sometimes. I generally charge FREE shipping so I just try to estimate a number into the price. One thing you can also do is if you are selling a similar item that other people have listed, if you go to their item and click on the "sell one like this" link, it will copy the weight and dimensions that person has set. This is not always accurate but you can get a ballpark number. For the most accuracy I...

I have sold some on Mercari. I like Poshmark a little better and maybe because I’ve used it. I like that I don’t have to deal with the shipping cost part. Since I first posted, my sales are up to $525. $260 is from the box I bought for $300. I still have a few high priced items from my Amazon returns box and still am on track to at least triple my money.

A lot of the cash back apps don't seem to require you go to the app before shopping. You just link your credit card, forget about it, and when you happen to be at that store, use the credit card. I have Dosh. I got $5 for signing up and just got 2% on a Sam's Club purchase. There aren't that many offers in my area, and some offers aren't available from my local franchisee (Dunkin Donuts, for example, is listed, but my local Dunkin isn't listed as a local merchant.)

We did some work with Shopkick (I work at The Penny Hoarder) and I couldn't believe how loyal their users are -- they have a serious fan base! People who use it absolutely love Shopkick, so much that they sometimes spot each other at stores. Something interesting I didn't expect was that a number of the people we interviewed use the app not only to earn/save money (by earning kicks and redeeming for gift cards) but also to lose weight, because the app motivates them to walk a lot.
