Making Extra Summer Money

Yeah…that’s a subject that never fails to perk interest.  Let’s face it: we can all use some extra money during the warmer weather, for kid’s camp fees, sleeping bags, higher water bills…maybe even–gasp!-a vacation?

I’m going to be blunt–I hate the phrase “make money at home” because it’s overused and usually by totally sleazy types.  But, that doesn’t change the face that we all pretty much need to at this point.  So…here’s the deal.  These are the few systems I can confidently guarantee as reputable; either because I’m doing them or someone I trust has vouched for them.

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.


Inbox Dollars gives you a $5.00 signing bonus, and they offer easy to complete surveys for more cash.

Memolink is newer, but I’ve gotten great reviews from readers who use it.  There’s a $5.00 signing bonus, and you earn points to redeem for cash and coupons.



If you like the stealthy aspect of being a mystery shopper, this is a good one–Shadow  You will not get the exciting assignments right away–just keep plugging away and the rewards are better and better as you prove yourself.


Neilsen NCP Homescan is hands-down the most reputable–Neilsen’s been around forever as a polling and research service.
