@mooreincome has inspired me to look into doing some reselling online. I actually have a very decent camera (a Canon DSLR with interchangeable lenses). So all I need to start is sourcing material to sell. I live down the street from a Salvation Army, so I'm going to start there. Also, there are some Goodwill Boutiques in my area as well (higher end Goodwills), so I'm going to take a look at those as well.
My wins for today:
I received a $49 refund check back from Chase. I signed up for a credit card where I had to spend $500 in 3 months in order to get a $250 credit at Starbucks. I did this, and they added the annual fee of $49. I was charged the fee but it was refunded when I cancelled the card. So that was nice. It went back into our checking.
I somehow found (I don't remember how - it may have been craigslist) a 4 day online focus group about coffee that pays $175. I should receive a check in the mail 5 days or so after the focus group ends on Saturday. So this is exciting! This money is going into one of my Ally savings accounts - I have 6 plus an online Ally checking account. I decided to open up separate accounts through Ally for different wants/needs like vacation, home fund, etc. I'm only contributing like $50 per month towards most of them, but it's something. And the savings rate is way higher than my local credit union - I think it's like 1.59% or something like that now.
Speaking of craigslist, I semi-regularly check the gigs and etc./misc. jobs. There are all kinds of things that get posted here, like focus groups. I've participated in local and online focus groups, and they pay pretty well.
What are everyone else's wins today?
