Other Income Ideas

People choose mystery shopping as a source of income for a variety of reasons. For just as many reasons, they often find themselves not mystery shopping, but with a spare minute or two to earn some extra income. I have gathered some options that may work if you can’t get out to mystery shop, but you can spare a few minutes to do various tasks.

Remember, every little bit helps!

Swagbucks is one of the most popular paid to click sites. Once you sign up for an account, you can earn “swagbucks” that you can then redeem towards gift cards. Earning swagbucks is as easy as answering a daily poll, or watching some videos. If you have a little more time, you can earn swagbucks for completing surveys. I usually am able to earn at least $20 a month from this site with minimal effort.

Perk is a relatively newer way to earn points that you can redeem towards gift cards. If you have a mobile phone, you can stream perk.tv to earn points, or you can watch perk.tv in your browser while you surf the web. They also have other mobile apps where users can earn Perk Points for playing scratch cards, and more. I have earned a lot of amazon gift cards using this service. It is easy to use and easy to earn.

This paid to click site is not the most attractive in its design, but it does pay well. One of my favorite ways to earn is to install mobile apps with AppFly. They pay 50 cents for each app that you install and open. I try to play it a bit as well, sometimes I play for longer than I planned :-) There are additional ways to earn as well, like watching videos and printing coupons. I am usually able to earn at least $20 a month from here with a small amount of effort. My first month was my best month, because there were lots of apps available that I hadn’t installed.
