Did you know every day you have so many chances to earn money online or offline? I get many emails from my readers asking about how to make money, but sometimes we don’t look in the right places and lose the opportunities to earn some extra income.
I always turn to these extra income earners during holidays to fund that additional spending. Extra income can be useful during holidays for shopping or travel or just to have a supplemental income fund. I firmly believe you should have more than one stream of income to be more financially secure.
Today, I am listing some easy ways to make money everyday, and most of these are the things you do anyway in your daily routine.
All the below ways of earning extra income are the most legitimate and proven ways to make money online/offline.
So go ahead and try them out.
13 Surprising Ways You Can Make Money Every Day
#1. Answer Questions
Do you like to advise people on subjects you are good at?
Then you have a way to earn extra cash.
Sometimes just answering questions and telling others what you know about a subject can make you some extra money. Can’t believe it? It is true.
With Wonder, be very descriptive with your answers and do your research when answering. From my experience, short answers might not get you successfully through sign-up process.
#2. Give Your Opinion
It sounds so easy, right?!
It’s as simple as sharing your thoughts on particular brands and helping companies to design better products. How much you earn in this way is entirely dependent on which websites you use and how much time you spend on them.
I have seen some people making around $500 per month just by sharing their opinions. Sign up for websites like Pinecone Research, Swagbucks, InboxDollars, and American Consumer Opinion. These are some of the most legitimate sites, and they do pay.
Being active on these websites and giving honest answers can give you a chance to earn more + you get a $5 bonus to join Swagbucks.

#3. Watch Videos
Don’t we all love doing this?
I am sure you spend some part of your day watching videos. Well, there is a way to make this a money-making gig.
You can become a captioner transcribing videos, loop videos on Swagbucks & InboxDollars, or be a tagger with Netflix (just watch out for openings for this role). The list is endless, and all these ways are entirely legitimate as they are backed by trusted companies.
With Swagbucks, you need not watch the videos. Just play them on your device in the background and loop them. I have made decent money with Swagbucks, and I highly recommend it. Read our in-depth Swagbucks review to learn more.
#4. Share, Post, or Tweet
Do you continuously jiggle your fingers on Facebook?
Are you an Insta junkie like me?
Here is the good news; you can earn quite a good income if you follow the right ways of being on social media. If Pinterest is your love, then try becoming a Pinterest VA (there is enormous demand for this).
You can sign up with IZEA to start promoting brands, and if Instagram is your thing, then get the scoop on how to make money on Instagram from my friend Emma Lomas. She is a very successful Instagrammer who makes a great income from brand promotions.
Try to join as many influencer platforms as you can to get more exposure. Also try to grow your followers and engagement on the social media channel of your choice to get more opportunities.
#5. Review Calls
Reviewing calls is another simple and easy money-making gig that you can do in your daily routine. Humanatic is the company that pays you to listen to and categorize calls. You will be just tagging the calls into categories.
This can be an easy break-time job for you when you are at home with kids. Keep in mind that this is only an extra income option, and you need to be patient with the call reviewing. Interested in this? Go ahead and apply.
If you want to do well at this, you will need to be on the website and check back intermittently to see if you have a call to review.
#6. Just Shop
This is insane, isn’t it?! How do you get paid to shop?
You can if you know how to. There are a couple of ways you can get paid when you do your usual shopping.
You can shop through Rakuten to get cash back, and the thing that makes it sweet is you get a $10 bonus when you sign up with Rakuten. You can also scan your shopping with the Ibotta app and get cashback.
With Rakuten, apart from the $10 sign-up bonus, you also get a referral bonus of $25 for every friend you refer.
I love driving. In the last decade there has been a significant rise in the ride-sharing economy, and it is for good.
I have a bunch of friends (stay-at-moms who drive while their kids are at school) who drive with Uber and make significant money. No, they don’t do it all day, just in the evenings and weekends, and they earn substantial money from it.
You will get paid more if you drive at peak times, but that also depends on the city you drive in.
Yes, you heard it right. There is a way to earn some extra cash when you exercise.
Talk about some motivation!
There are loads of apps and programs like HealthyWage, Dietbet, and Fitness Pact. All these programs have some minimum requirements like accruing a minimum number of points or minimum walking steps/exercise.
#9. Listen to Music
I love this one! I am sure many of us listen to music while we do our daily chores. You can make money by listening to with companies music like Slicethepie, MusicXray, FusionCash, HitPredictor, and Welocalize. With Welocalize, you get a chance to listen to songs and transcribe them.
All of these are only extra income options, so it helps to sign up for all of them and get going. Also remember that the more active you are on these platforms, listening to and reviewing the songs, the more chances you have to earn more.
#10. Deliver Stuff
Does a quick run out to deliver some stuff sound like a good hustle to you? Then you have a bunch of opportunities to earn money on the side.
I think this is a great way to make some extra cash while the kids are at school. With UberEats, Amazon Flex, DoorDash, or Postmates, the most significant advantage with all these delivery apps is the flexibility; you get to choose your hours.
Most of these apps will require you to undergo a vehicle clearance and a background check. You get to make the most money when you deliver during peak times, so that’s the peak money-making period.
#11. Review/Test Apps
I have loads of apps on my phone. So does everyone else. If you could just test apps and get paid, wouldn’t it be an easy way to make money? Yes, it would. Companies like UserTesting, Beta Family, and Apperwall take testers to review or test apps. It does not require any expertise to start this gig.
These short gigs are in high demand, so the workflow might not be consistent as you can finish the tasks quite quickly. So once you register, be sure to check in frequently for tasks.
#12. Rent Your Car
You will have to register with these sites with details about your car first. Renting your car is a cool gig only if you are comfortable with someone using your vehicle.
Having a car in good condition does help to get more rentals and having a good profile with good pictures of your vehicle can increase your views.
#13. Search the Web
Do you love browsing the web for hours? Then you are looking at a passive way to make money online. Companies and brands are always trying to find out user browsing habits to help them build better web interfaces.
With Qmee you have to click on results when they show up. The amount you make may be lower, but it can add up quickly if you browse frequently.
#14. Refer Friends
Now, this is my favorite one! I love sharing my views about the products or services that I like or highly trust. If they can benefit from my experience, why not? Another significant advantage of referring good brands or products to your friends is that you can make good money.
Do not sign up for websites based only on their referral program; instead, recommend only the products or brands that you trust. This way both parties benefit, and you get paid. Programs like Rakuten can give you more bonus income, as they have tiered programs, and the bonus increases as the number of referrals grow.
There are infinite ways to make money in your daily life. The only thing that you need to keep in mind is the legitimacy and kind of money you make from them. My advice is that you go for the ways that give you more income for your times.
