When trying to find legitimate ways of making money from home, it is often very difficult to distinguish the true opportunities from the scam websites. There are indeed various easy ways to earn money online. Though most of them won’t make you a full time living income, it might be enough to help you with some bills or to save money for the Holidays. Keep reading to discover 4 trustworthy websites to make money from home.
One of the most popular and well-known websites in the list, Swagbucks lets you earn points for completing different activities. Daily polls, surveys, videos, games and web searches, among other things, will make you earn Swagbucks. There are also free trials you can take advantage of, although most will require a credit card. Just make sure to cancel the service before your card is billed. Swagbucks also has a shopping component: use the link provided to your favorite online merchant and your purchase will earn you Swagbucks. Last but not least, codes are released daily on the Swagbucks blog or Twitter account, so keep checking to maximize your earnings! You can exchange your Swagbucks for gift cards, Paypal cash, charity donations and sweepstakes (swagstakes) entries.
Not just a survey website, InboxDollars also offers many activities to help you earn cash. The main money maker on the site is the special offers, so again, make sure to cancel before your card is billed. InboxDollars also has surveys available, games to play and videos to watch for some extra dollars. One of InboxDollars’ particularities is that they will send you paid emails directly to your inbox. You only need one second of your time to click on the link and have $0.02 added to your InboxDollars’ balance. Once you reach $30, you can request a payment by check. Overall, the site is very user friendly and there are multiple opportunities to earn every day.
Toluna is mainly about surveys and daily polls. Once you start taking a survey, the algorithm calculates quickly if you qualify or not. If you don’t, it will offer you to try for a different survey until there are none available in the system. There is also a possibility of creating your own polls and getting rewarded to do so. Another thing I like about Toluna is that you can sign up to test products. You answer a handful of questions related to that particular product, and Toluna selects members who will get to test it in the next few weeks. The points you earn from answering surveys and polls can be redeemed for gift cards, Paypal money, sweepstakes entries and gifties (virtual gifts that can become real).
Ipsos is very similar to Toluna: it is primarily a survey and daily poll website. You can also create your own polls for extra rewards. Many different surveys are available every day (sent to your email), so the opportunities of winning reward points are various. Ipsos also lets you enter sweepstakes in its own different way: after you finish a survey (whether you qualified or not), you are asked to guess how the majority of respondents answered a specific question. Depending how close you were to the correct answer, you will get a certain amount of chances to spend on different sweepstakes entries. Ipsos lets you exchange your points for charity donations, Paypal money, gift cards and sweepstakes entries as well.
Even though these websites won’t provide enough income for you to quit your full time job, they do offer a good opportunity to make some extra cash. Just remember that there are people out there who might lead you to believe you can make thousands of dollars with very minimal work. You know how the saying goes: “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is”. Do your research, follow your instincts and be on your way to earn some money from the comfort of your own home! Good luck!
