Effective Ways To Earn Extra Money This Holiday

I don’t care how well you budget, finding effective ways to earn extra money this Holiday becomes more and more important as the gift list gets longer and longer.

You know I’m right.  Santa’s not the only one shopping for a gift list the length of the Nile River.

So, here’s the deal: these are all options that I either use myself or a trusted friend can vouch for their usefulness.



The Best–And Most Lucrative–Of the “Make Money From Home” Options:

  1. Vindale Research: the hands-down favorite.  You earn between $5.00 to $75.00 per survey.  I can’t tell you how you get picked for the higher-paying surveys, it’s all based on whatever mysterious demographic they’re looking for.  But if they accept you, DO IT.
  2. NCP Homescan: the granddaddy of the survey world and the most reputable.  They’re good about making gift cards stack up if you’re consistent.
  3. Swagbucks Surveys: I’m getting good reports back from two friends who utilize Swagbucks–the company offers several options to earn gift cards quickly.
  4. Survey Downline: I’m a fan of this group because they pay in cash, and promptly.
  5. Mommy Knows: is one of the fastest-growing survey sites because they’re good at paying cash for every survey and paying promptly.
  6. Panel PayDay: good reports back on this one, and they pay you a $25.00 signing bonus.


Here’s how to make these services work for you:

  • Be prompt.  When they send you a survey, fill it out as soon as you can.  Accurate and prompt surveys will earn you more and better-paying options.
  • Be accurate.  Fill everything out and be accurate.  They track your information and want to make sure you’re paying attention.
  • Sign up for the goodies: you can’t win those gift cards if you don’t sign up!
  • Open a Paypal account.  Most do require that you have one–but no matter what, you’ll be paid promptly if you have one.

Finally… if you’re the specific age or ethnicity the research companies currently need, they will offer you more and better offers to continue.  I can never tell you what mysterious algorithm determines this, but consistency and keeping up with their requests can make these options lucrative–way beyond the frenzy of the Holidays have passed.  Good luck!  If you do participate in one of these companies, please let us know how it goes for you–feedback is SO important!  Thanks!

    I used mysurvey.com I earn about $10 a month. That is A LOT of surveys. 1100 pts = $10. Rarely is there a survey over 150 and most are about 50 points for 20-30 minutes of time. Every little bit helps so I keep answering them. I have yet to make more than that in a month. Good luck!

    I’m always cautioning people that none of these programs will make you rich. 🙂 I agree with you that every little bit helps–and the ones who strike gold by being the right age/race/I don’t know/ demographic are thrilled. That’s why it’s worth it to me. Thanks for the input!
