Summer is what I call the "slow months" - families aren't hustling and bustling and even time seems to slow to a crawl.
But that also means that a lot of times, work slows down. If you've been a fan of Edge Of Insanity for a while, you'll notice that sponsored posts, reviews, and giveaways tend to be few and far between during the hot months. So starting in June, I find extra ways I can make money for birthdays, Christmas, and celebrations.
Want to know the secret to how I supply Christmas for free each year by just being patient?
eJury - In fact, I had JUST finished a case. eJury is kind of like being part of a jury, except it's online. (They call it Mock Juries.) It's done by county, and you read/listen (depending on the case), and render a "verdict". Most cases have a 50 verdict cap. Payout depends on the case.
Swagbucks - If you haven't heard of Swagbucks, you might want to get a notepad out for this. It's a place where you earn SBs to put towards gift cards and other fun stuff. You can earn SBs by shopping, surveys, searching, playing games, and completing offers. Between me and Twin, we made Christmas happen for at least 2 years in a row just by using Swagbucks.
Survey Sites - There are a lot of survey websites out there that say it's easy to earn cash, and while some of them are legit, there are a lot of survey websites that are a scam. One website I constantly use is Opinion Outpost. It's easy to sign up, simple to use, and the minimum payout for Paypal is only $10! The Peaceful Mom has more legit survey sites you can visit.
OneSpace (previously known as CrowdSource) - If you're online quite a bit but don't want to spend hours a day answering questions for a survey you might not even qualify for, OneSpace could be considered a blessing. With "micro" jobs to bigger editing opportunities, you decide what you want to do. However, the more you work, the more you get paid.
Pinecone Research - This isn't just your average survey place. Yes, the points you earn for surveys can be put towards cash and prizes, but you also have the opportunity to try products at home. Membership is usually one per household. Twin has been a member of Pinecone Research for a long time and has tried out countless products. (I think my favorite was the breakfast bowls she did a while back!)
This isn't an extensive list by any means, but it is meant to get you started on finding ways to earn a little extra moolah this summertime!
