15 Ways To Make Money Online (Apps, Surveys, Investing & More)

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make a few extra bucks. I used to take online surveys religiously. Here are some tried and true methods I have personally used and got paid from. You’re not going to get rich quick with these sites, but hey, money is money.



With FusionCash, you get paid to take surveys, listen to the radio, watch videos, and various other tasks and offers. Surveys pay generally well and there’s nice referral rewards too. You can get $1 for every person who signs up through your link, $2 when they complete an offer, and $5 when they cash out. Minimum payment threshold is $25 and you can get paid through PayPal, Check or Direct Deposit. I have made about $25 in an average month through FusionCash and it’s one of my favorites. Sign up here.


InboxDollars is similar to FusionCash in that you can complete many different tasks to earn money. They have similar tasks such as surveys, videos, offers, games and more. They also have this paid email feature where you get paid 2 cents per email they send you that you open. You must accumulate $30 to get paid with a gift card, prepaid Visa or check. Join today and take a few of their demographic surveys and you’re already at $6! I have made about $30 a month from this site. Sign up here.


Points2Shop is another offer site. Just like the others you can get “paid” to take surveys, complete offers, play games, etc. I say “paid” because most of the currency is in points. You can spend your points on pretty much anything to gift cards, electronics, clothes, and more. They have a very wide selection. Some offers do pay cash, but it’s very little. You can redeem cash through PayPal, Payza, a check or more. One of my favorite ways to make money through the site is through their app. You can download apps and get points, which add up pretty quickly. You can sign up here.


Chances are you’ve heard of SwagBucks. It’s one of the most popular sites out there. You can earn Swagbucks from surveys, offers, searching the web and more. They also have an app so you can earn on the go. Swagbucks can be redeemed gift cards. I’ve actually earned the most from entering sweepstakes with my swagbucks. I’ve won a few Amazon gift cards. Sign up here and get 500 Swagbucks!


With SliceThePie, you get paid to review mobile accessories, clothing and music. (You don’t actually get the items, you review based on appearance.) The better your reviews, the more you earn. You could easily make a couple bucks an hour. Get paid via PayPal. Sign up here!

They also have challenges where you get more points for meeting a certain number of miles in a week. You can redeem points for gift cards. Sign up here!


With Qriket, you watch short ads for spins and then spin for money. Pretty simple. The CEO also does tons of giveaways and what not on different social networks. Sign up here and get 10 bonus spins!
