1.) I found a local mom that needed help bringing her kids to daycare, which is 5 minutes down the road. Takes me about an hour to get the kids ready in the morning and drive them and my pay is $15 each time.
2.) I use my credit cards for big purchases and 5% cashback rewards categories and schedule payments from my debit right after to avoid a balance. I earn about $50-100 per month by doing this. I then either apply it to my balance to exchange for gift cards for things such as groceries.
3.) I frequently peruse the class action lawsuits site for claims that may be applicable to me. Not a guaranteed source of income but a great bonus when one comes around, earning me as much as $100 from a settlement.
4.) I have in the past and plan to again this year, after we close on our mortgage...to open bank and savings account that offers incentives such as $250-500 for opening accounts. You have to make sure you follow the fine print requirements such as direct deposit, amount of time account must be open, balance to maintain, etc.
5.) I use grocery rebate apps such as Ibotta, Receiptpal, and Checkout 51.
6.) I am signed up for every possible freebie site/product review site and receive hundreds of dollars of products weekly from food to personal hygiene to dog food, etc. This significantly reduces our grocery expenses. Examples include Moms Meet, SheSpeaks, Smiley360, Viewpoints. I list a lot of these on Instagram @Freebiepharm
I know there is more because it is a passion, or should I say an obsession of mine, but that is all I can think of at the time.
Have fun with your side hustle!
