I'm humbled by your kind words, and glad I could help. You may also have saved a bit of money by designing your own book cover. And I'm going to give you access to the tools I use. For image editing from social posts to presentations, info-graphics and even book covers. You may want to check out Canva (just search your browser for the keyword) which I have been using for a few years. But you may also want some royalty free, high definition images. Which you can access unlimited free...

Awww thank you. I just Graduated from ohio media school on 12/17/18. The day before I started my own Online Beauty Supply Business. A fellow student of mines told me about Canva to make my own flyers. This is so exciting and so blessed. God is directing my steps. Leading me to good people to help steer me in the right direction. You had to be a part of his plan for me. I cannot thank you enough! On Mon, Jan 14, 2019, 11:06 AM The Penny Hoarder Community < [email protected] wrote:

@Deon Christie this is wonderful information, as I too, would like to begin working on my content for my first book. It is so hard to get started and I’m nervous that my material will be lacking and/or fluid enough to attract and keep an audience, but after all of that stated, it is my dream. Your added resources will help in moving the train along. I wish I could afford a ghost writer, lol. Thank you for your valued info.

I, personally, like Receipt Hog. They take almost every receipt and turn it into points which eventually turn into cash. It also is fun because there is a slot machine and prize drawings.

Like @Jeff said you could try Paribus. I believe it did work on an Amazon purchase I made, but that was a while ago. I am not sure if it would work retroactively though.

Only a pleasure @Tam . The important part is to get started and you may want to replace the "ghost writer" with research. The more you research the bigger your knowledge vault will get, and in time you will surprise yourself with your own writing. Creating and owning your own writing work will put you on a whole new level of professional recognition. Wishing you all of success and prosperity.

Re: Amazon Cash Back Offer

Moore Income ·
This is my first time hearing about it. I am curious to exactly how it works. From just looking at their website, it looks like you earn 1% to start but can earn up to 10% by inviting friends. I am willing to give it a shot to see how it works. I don't mind trying new things! This is similar to cashback sites like Ebates or BeFrugal. BeFrugal offers up to 10% cashback but that is only in the "Amazon Exclusive Apparel" category. All other categories have varied percentages of cashback and...

There are so many ways to generate an income online, it's overwhelming. But there are also numerous scams, just wanting money and more money as you go along. There are free ways to make money online, but the key is to find the ones that actually work. Like BookRix , a publisher I have been using for quite some time. A free publisher that will publish your work on all Major Online Bookstores like Amazon, Kobo and many more. They do not charge you anything for all their work, but does take a...

I am curious are there and apps that give you rebates for something you already purchased? I know Ibotta you select the item first, then submit receipt. Ex: I purchased items on Amazon last week, without using Ibotta or Ebates....Is there anyway to still get rebates for these purchases? Thanks

I dont have any idea about it, because I don't prefer to read books through online, I always prefer to buy books, because its an easiest way to read books, I always buy my books from ReeCoupons, because for me its best place to buy anything within a low price.

I currently don't have a membership to either service, but Amazon's streaming options will likely entice me back at some point... unless I can convince a family member to let me use their login info. 😉 Also, @Nicole D.

I currently have Amazon Prime and a rewards card for 5% and enjoy using Prime music to exercise to almost everyday. I also use Prime video mostly for movies very often, as I find better movies to stream on Prime. (No cable, only stream) I also have a a Capital One Walmart rewards card but do not need Walmart Plus since anything I order from Walmart.com is over $35 and with free shipping. I utilize subscription orders for some grocery staples from Amazon with further discount. I had to weigh...

I have Prime and the shipping is not the primary reason. It was when I joined many years ago when they first came out... But now I love the movies and the music and the Alexa. Its still worth it for me, but once the kids are gone it may not be.

Since Amazon prime allows me to add one family member to my account, my mom is on my account so we split the cost every year. (We do the annual membership) Doing this makes it a reasonable price for both of us and we use it enough that it makes it worth it.

Re: Walmart Plus vs Amazon Prime: How to Choose

Yep, I'm considering dropping Amazon because of their big jump. I typically don't care if our orders get here next day or in two days, it's not that urgent. I use prime video now and then but actually prefer Netflix. Right now the only thing I'd miss is the free photo storage which I end up paying an additional $20/year because the "free" only covers photos and with grandkids we have a lot of videos and Amazon only allows maybe 2 or 3 videos and then you are over their file limit.

I sold plenty of things on nextdoor n some on ebay...It's been a while since I sold anything lately but for the most part the things I sold where lamps n other things I didn't want. I've got some other things to sell on nextdoor but for now I'm trying to lay low. I'm always busy with my ministry which keeps me busy all the time.

I used to sell designer women’s/clothing/accessories/household stuff on Poshmark, but it has gotten so saturated and no longer specialized that I haven’t touched it in a while. I also sold a lot on Craigslist in the past when it was popular. There are also sites to sell wedding dresses and decor. Lately, I’ve sold by posting in Facebook groups. People are always looking to buy plants and fitness gear! I have a pile of things to sell, but it’s time consuming to take photos and write...

Yes I sold a lot in the past. Now, not so much. It is a lot ofwork, a lot of fees, and a hassle. People are rude, cheap, and insulting. I don't know what happened over the past 10 years, but ebay selling is not what it used to be. I no longer do yard sales because of the number of people stealing and I don't feel safe. Might try my hand with Etsy printables.

I had an online business with eBay before. We made a fair amount of money in it. Then I opened an account with Poshmark. Not so much money and too much work setting up photos and descriptions. We closed both accounts because we were making so little in comparison to the labor we put into them. I would suggest buying bulk and selling only a few categories of items on Amazon and selling them 3rd person. Seems one way to make some money - -

I think it's a rare person who can get rich selling on line and it depends on your definition of rich. I sold/sell on ebay and did really well there. Sometimes I would post an item and within a half hour it was sold and some things just sat there for months. It's getting a little tougher now to get a good profit from ebay as they are nickel and dime-ing you to death on everything and every time you turn around. It really bites into the profits and let's not talk about the cost of postage.

I used to sell very good condition household goods and craft supplies like yarn I no longer wanted on ebay. I sold homemade items on Etsy. Once the IRS cracked down on collecting sales tax and reporting 1099s for used item sellers, I dropped out. I'm not trying to avoid the IRS requirements, but both venues were horrendous in supplying accurate 1099s. Both venues also tried to profit from shipping fees and those and other seller fees were rolled into those 1099s. You'd better keep great...

I've only sold of FB marketplace, when I'm looking to get rid of stuff from my home. I'm not looking to make a ton of money- sometimes I do alright but most of the time I just want it out of there. Only once have a had any trouble doing this, when I was accused of passing off 'fake' boots as Timberlane. 🙄 (They weren't.) Otherwise it's pretty easy and low key and better than a yard sale.

I’d like to sell items online but I also know pleanty of people who did and just quit due to fees, taxes, rude people, not enough money made to be worth the effort. On the flip side, as someone who has bought online myself, I’ve had the great luck to have bought from sellers who have been great. I know that’s not the case in many instances and that does worry me. I have thought about selling online for quite some time now, but honestly don’t know if it’s worth it . And I also know that no...

I dabbled in eBay and Etsy years ago, with decent results. But Facebook Marketplace has been my go-to lately. After selling an electric bass for a decent profit, next up is cleaning up a trombone I found at a garage sale and flipping it plus selling some old video games that are just collecting dust.
