Money Matters: Extra Bucks, Side Hustle, Free Money

Without mincing words, money matters. But young and old are busy digging for the next source.

Considering the fact that nobody has one source of expenses, no one, therefore, should sit with one source of income.

There is no shortage of legitimate ways to make money online.

With so many legitimate online money making opportunities, almost anyone can earn extra cash on the internet these days.

But, many of these sites have one shortcoming… or the other

they aren’t that quick when it comes to paying you!

It takes weeks to get paid and in some rare cases, even months. Of course, that doesn’t mean they are scams. They are perfectly genuine sites, it’s just the way their payment system works.

But what if you don’t want to wait weeks or months to get paid?

What if you want to be paid instantly, or at least fast within a day or so?

Well, you are in luck!

I’ve found you a few trusted websites that do actually pay quickly, some instantly and some within 24 hours or so.

Some pay via PayPal, others will write you a check.

Here they are…

1. MySurvey
Official Site: MySurvey.com
Payout Minimum: $10
Payout Speed: Instant (if you choose gift certificates)
If you like talking about products and services that you use in your everyday life, you’ll like MySurvey. It’s one of the best legitimate online survey sites that pay you for taking online surveys.

Each survey can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. Longer surveys usually pay more.

The best part is that you don’t need any experience or special knowledge and since it’s free, it’s a great way to make money without investing a dime.

2. Transcribe Me
Official Site: TranscribeMe.com
Payout Minimum: $1
Payout Speed: Instant
Transcribe Me is a website where you can transcribe audio files for money.



If you don’t know what transcription is, it’s the practice of taking audio and writing it down.

It’s simple stuff, and all it requires is that you be able to type quickly!

Transcribe Me has just a short little test to see if you qualify, and then you can get right into it.

This website offers $20 per audio hour.

Each audio file takes an average of 3 hours to be transcribed.

3. Qmee
Official Site: Qmee.com
Payout Minimum: None
Payout Speed: Instant
Qmee started as a “Get paid to search” kind of site but has rapidly evolved into something more.

Wanna get $5 free?
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.

It is now a much more full-fledged online rewards program where you earn money for searching as well as shopping online and taking surveys.

Yes, a sort of cashback site.

They pay via PayPal.

4. Slice the Pie
Official Site: SlicethePie.com
Payout Minimum: $10
Payout Speed: Every Tuesday and Friday (fixed payouts)
Slice the Pie is unique among the many mini-task sites that have been very popular under the mTurk model because it’s a music review site that pays you to listen to music.

An artist’s song will play in a 90-second clip. You listen and afterward answer a few questions about what you liked and disliked.

The payment will be anywhere from 6¢ to 15¢, depending on whether or not they’re running any specials.

Payment also increases with your rank, which you’ll gain as you review more songs.

It’s not amazingly lucrative, but definitely, a more fun way to earn, than many other options.

5. Ibotta
Official Site: Ibotta.com
Payout Minimum: $5
Payout Speed: Instant
Ibotta is an awesome money saving app that everyone should be using.

Ibotta pays you back for items that you buy from the store. They’ll tell you what products are sponsored, and then you’ll be compensated for buying them and checking in with the app (verified via a snapshot of your receipt.)

You can cash out when you reach the minimum requirement.

It’s worth noting that it has a referral system too, just in case the others in your life might be interested in a service like this.

6. Toluna
Official Site: Toluna.com
Payout Minimum: 500 points for prizes, 80,000 for vouchers.
Payout Speed: Depends on the reward
Like getting paid to test products?

Then you’ll love Toluna.

It’s parent company, Toluna Group, is one of the most trusted market research companies.

Toluna Influencers is their online panel where not only they pay you to test products, but also to take surveys, polls and more.

Now, you won’t be getting products to test every day or every week, but you get enough free stuff to test that it is worth joining. Plus, you can make money almost every day by taking surveys, poll and more.

7. Amazon mTurk
Official Site: Mturk.com
Payout Minimum: $1
Payout Speed: 1-2 days
If you’ve heard of anything on this list, it is probably Amazon mTurk.

mTurk is the king of task websites, hosting hundreds of thousands of tasks every day and seeing very large amounts of money flow through from task providers to task-takers.

You’ll need an Amazon Payments account because this is a very official way of making money (probably the most official behind finding work on a freelancing website.)

The Amazon Payments account will want to be linked to your bank account, that way you can transfer the funds between the two (you can also spend the money on Amazon.)

The tasks are called HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks) and they can vary greatly in difficulty, from assigning labels to pictures to writing full-on articles, or transcription work like we discussed before.

You can easily make $10 in a day, or even more if you sink a lot of time in.

mTurk is a pretty serious part of some people’s income (those who do complicated tasks with big payouts, not easy tasks that pay few cents), so it’s definitely something to look into if you find yourself in need of this type of service.

8. Newslines
Official Site: Newslines.org
Payout Minimum: $20
Payout Speed: Varies, but less than a day
Newslines is a crowdsourced news website. It’s organized by topics, which are updated as a timeline through 50-100 word posts about the topic and its details or goings-on.

You can get paid to add these little blurbs, $1 per accepted post.

It’s a great way to write and get paid. If you can find a way to get a groove going with posting things, you can easily make the money by the day. Even if not, you could probably manage to get a payment in a week or a few days.

The website is always accepting contributors, though the posts will have to pass through a minor editorial check (just to see if it fits the site’s standards.)

You can find more about what they require on their website.

9. YouGov
Official Site: YouGov.com
Payout Minimum: 5000 YouGov point.
Payout Speed: Varies, but less than a day
YouGov is another survey panel but their surveys are very different than other survey sites. They tend to focus on big picture issues rather than consumer related stuff like products and services.

Their surveys are about social issues, politics, public affairs and topics of that nature.

Here’s something interesting…

your feedback may actually get featured on major news sites!

You see, YouGov’s data and findings are constantly used in news articles on major media and news and sometimes that could be your feedback that gets shared. If that happens, YouGov will email you to let you know you’ve been featured.

Update
Unfortunately, a few of the sites mentioned in the original post are no longer in business. They either merged with another company or have changed direction.

For the sake of archives, I kept them here.

Postloop
Official Site: Postloop.com
Payout Minimum: $5
Payout Speed: A few hours
Postloop is a website that pays you to post to forums.

It’s mostly used by new websites who are trying to drive traffic to the site, so all you have to do is follow the links on the site and make some quality posts.

This is one of the more favorable options on the list, if for no other reason than the fact that it is so open-ended.

Reaching their minimum payout is no trouble at all, so it’s a good site to keep around if you ever need a few bucks in a pinch.

Jingit
Official Site: Jingit.com
Payout Minimum: N/A
Payout Speed: Instant
We couldn’t provide the payout minimum because Jingit is pretty unique in the way that it operates the money side of things.

Jingit won’t pay out to a PayPal or a bank account – they instead payout to a Jingit Visa debit card, which you sign up for when you sign up for the site itself.

Supposedly, any money you earn goes straight to the card, which cuts out the need for a payout system.

Earnings for this site are low, $5 to $10 in a week for those who are only putting in minimal effort. This one is probably best done as a rainy day fund.

Use your Jingit account to earn funds a little bit throughout the week and just let the money save up on your card, that way you know you’ll have a little bit built up by the time you need it.

But how does Jingit work?

Well, it has sponsorship from lots of major retailers- Kraft and Walmart to name a few- and you earn money by watching ads, giving feedback on products, doing a check in at a store, or shopping for certain items.

Whatever you earn goes directly to your Jingit debit card. You can then use that card like any other gift/debit card to shop.


And the list goes on…
I will review this and publish an updated version very soon.
