You might laugh, but I’ve already started planning for Christmas. It takes a huge bite out of our budget, so we’re always looking for ways to earn extra money (I refuse to use credit cards to buy presents).
One of the easiest ways to earn a little extra money is by signing up with a survey company. I love MySurvey.com and have earned over $400 in the last few years by being on their panel.
Each survey earns you points, which you can redeem for gift cards or cash. The surveys are easy to complete, and you can see the points value before you start. Here are some of the surveys I’ve taken recently:
–Report on our business expenses
–Favorite TV shows
Another bonus is participating in product trials—you get points and free products, too! Here are some of the items we’ve sampled and reported on. I can’t say the names because of confidentiality, but these are major national brands.
–Baby wipes (three different times!)
Some things to remember: There are some fishy survey companies out there. You NEVER have to pay to join a legitimate survey company. Don’t give out your Social Security Number, bank account number, mother’s maiden name, etc.
