1. Recycle your old phone(s)

Bet you got a few ancient Nokia’s hidden somewhere around the house. You’d be surprised to know that you can actually get some cash if you decide to sell them. A lot of companies offer compensation for recycling old phones which are shipped somewhere to Asia and getting dismantled there. You can check the list of companies and possible earnings here. Ask your family and friends if they’d like to give away their old phones too for a bigger bucks.

2. Invite people for dinner

If you have relatively impressive cooking skills and some room to host guests, sign up for Eat With – a cool new service connecting travellers with hosts around the world, who invite them to a small dinner party for a fixed fee. As a host, you can set a rate per guest, choose the time and dates when you are available to throw a feast and indicate the max amount of people you are ready to invite (usually less than 6).

To become a host fill in an application form where you tell about yourself, your cooking talents and your place. Currently, the service is available in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and some major cities in Europe, Middle East and South America. The money you can earn for a small party are more than decent.

3. Become a part-time mover

This option is more suitable for guys, but girls are often accepted too to move around fragile stuff and do some minor cleaning. Moving jobs are typically per request and you can always choose a suitable time for you to do them. A lot of moving companies allow you to create an account with them for a fee, list your services, rates, working hours etc and get hired for temporary jobs. Check out this list of moving jobs to get a better idea of how things work and how much you can actually earn for lifting someone’s sofa.

4. Get paid 35$/hour to drive people around

Yes, that’s exactly how much you can make with Lyft – a cool app and service eliminating the need to use taxis. Users can just login from their phone and request a drive in all major cities in US. It’s faster and at least twice cheaper than calling the typical cab.

You, as a driver, will get a notification and can take a lift request. You set your own working hours and earn 35$ per hour as the site says. Obviously, you’ll need your own car to earn with them and some initial money to pay for the gas.

5. Review music for cash

All music lovers gonna love this job – all you need to do is listen to and review unsigned bands and artists online at Slicethepie. It may take a while to build up your reputation, but you can earn extra $50+ per month for spending 5-10 min a day listening to some aspiring music talents (or not so talents).

6. Distribute leaflets

It sounds like a bit of a lame job, but some companies can offer you good money for giving away promotional staff or doing door drops. For say working 4-5 hours on the weekends, you can expect to earn somewhere between $40-$60 per 1.000 distributed leaflets.

7. Get cash rebates for scanning your receipts

You do buy groceries, cosmetics and other staff monthly, do you?, Why don’t you earn some extra bucks for that? Download a free Ibotta app, browse around and see what rebates their are offering if you scan and upload your recipient for a certain product they request. For instance, they offer 50 cents if you upload a picture of a recipient where you bought milk and offer $10 for a picture of a Best Buy receipt. Of course, it makes no sense going out and purposefully buying products with the highest rebate, yet it won’t take much of your time taking and uploading pictures of things you typically buy and stash some extra cash by the end of the month.

8. Sell your wardrobe

Girls, that’s a perfect option for you! How many dresses do you have that you wore like 3 times and now they’re hidden somewhere deep in your closet? Clothes you no longer wear shouldn’t pile up around the house, when they can be turned into cash asserts. You can either organise a yard sale yourself (which is kind of a hassle), or better sell the items throughThredUp, which will pay somewhere around $2-$25 for staff from Gap, Banana Republic, H&M, etc. You can browse around to see how much different items are worth. The best thing about ThredUp is that all you need to do is pack your clothes in a box and then just ship it to them (shipping costs are covered by the company).

9. Test websites for money

A lot of big companies look for feedback on the usability of their websites and you can get paid doing that. Expect to earn somewhere from 10 cents for an assignment taking less than a minute, to $10-$15 when it comes to larger questionnaires requesting more of your time. Here’s a big list of siteswhere you can create an account and start earning cash. All the payments are typically made via PayPal either at the end of the month or when you have earned a certain sum.

10. Get paid for being someone’s friend

Rent a Friend is an absolutely legit US service where people offer their friendship (and nothing more!) starting from $10 and up to $50 per hour. As Scott Rosenbaum, the creator of the service says: “Just to hang out with, go to a movie or restaurant with or find someone to show you around an unfamiliar town”. As current users say you can get invited to be someone’s +1 on a VIP event, wine tasting tour, concert or some other cool activity that will cost you nothing to attend!

If you are easygoing and communicative, that’s might be the best job for you. Some users claim to do it full-time and earn over $50.000 per year! To become a friend, you’ll need to fill in an application form describing your personality and send it to the community manager.
