10 Sites and apps I use every day to make money online quickly and for free.
Now there are a lot of methods that I use to make more money online. But there are a few that due to a variety of reasons I currently use every day. Then as a checklist, I go through each one making sure I do all the available tasks to earn myself some decent money.
My daily checklist used to be much bigger, but the problem with this is that it took too long. In my mind, they were not worth the time a lot of the other sites. Being more restrictive has allowed me to look into more avenues of earning extra money online that will scale better, namely KDP and Lego. At times I still use other sites, but doing these every day gives me a reliable income each month that I can rely on.
I have split the 10 sites into different categories. 5 of them are good big money earners. That will accrue a decent amount. The second 5 are more the smaller fry ones, that won’t make you rich, but are little ones that take a few seconds each day and can keep the pennies coming in as well as a great chance to earn some extra money.
Y live surveys formerly Populus live
Y live is my favourite survey platform, it is a great rate of pay. £1 for 5 minutes is their advert but it has to be said the surveys are often quicker than advertised. The surveys are emailed to you on a variety of different subjects.
Very consistent earner for me. I aim for £25 a month. With a payment threshold of £50. I normally get paid every 2 months. I have an account as well as my partner who uses it on a separate device. Last year we earned £600 from this website alone.
Not as good a rate of pay as Ylive surveys, but still decent, the screenouts are also quite rare. Much rarer than other survey platforms. They have a good variety of surveys. One of the best things with the lifepoints panel is that you get not only a great selection of surveys but they also have bigger diary studies. Like drinking, tv watching or toiletries. That pays a great rate of pay for your time. Entering a couple of minutes each day.
The surveys come in floods however which can be a bit of a pain, lately seems to come all in one week a month. There will be 10-15 for a few days and other days just 1-2. I always aim to do whatever is on offer for Lifepoints.
Another consistent earner. I earned £625 in 2021
You can redeem it at a much lower rate. £5 PayPal which is nice as the money can tick through a lot more regularly than Y live
Panelbase is a survey platform again that I really like, the surveys are more consistent a few each day. Although appear harder to get in. But at least the screenouts are very early.
Again another great thing about panel base is that you can gain the opportunity for other excellent and higher-paying studies and product tests through panel base. This really helps boost your income
In 2021 I earned a modest £256.33, however, through panel base, I have been invited to other great platforms one such example is consumer pulse, which is invite-only and in 2021 earned me £160 in Argos vouchers.
Payout through panel base itself is done through Bacs bank voucher once the minimum £10 is met.
User testing sites are a bit different than survyes, but a great rate of pay. You can sign up to much bigger user testing projects but they seem harder to get into although the pay can be great.
But I like the smaller tests the ones that take 5 -10 minutes talking about a website or an app, or doing other small tasks and getting paid a few quid for it.
Intellizoom is one that once you get into can offer some decent earning opportunities.
You do need to complete a test and get approved but this was pretty straightforward.
Then the tests will be emailed to you, they will tell you whether you can complete on the phone or in app, what you need to do and how long.
I tend to do mine after 9pm as that is the time I can have some unitterupted child free time to natter to myself as you will need some quiet and privacy to complete these tests.
You tend to get either $5 or $8 tests. With varying length. The pay is then sent to your paypal within 21 days
My earnings in 2021 were a very help £383
Usertesting is another great one, but I have found it harder to gain access to their tests. The best approach is to have the website opened up in the background and a little bing bong will alert you when a test is free.
They have a mobile app as well that you can download as well. Where often many of the tests are completed on there. The rate of pay is a little bit more than intellizoom $10 for standard tests, but would say they can sometimes be bit too long for my liking. Where as intellizoom tends to be short and snappy.
Earnings in 2021 were modest in comparison but still over £180
We are 8
This is a very nifty little app. Which pays you for watching few adverts as well as supporting good causes. Ideal to do in the teabreak or to pop on in the background and ignore. Normally about 30 second ads and you can get about 10 p.
You can redeem this via paypal, over a year if things continue this will add up to a nice sum of money for very little work each day.
This is a quick one 10 seconds a day Monday to Friday will make a smooth 50 pence a week not a hige amount but it all helps.
Viewsban is a survey site that offers sporadic surveys on insurance that has a decent rate of pay the threshold is £12 to be paid via paypal. But a very easy task each day
EverUp is a mobile bank that gives you excellent opportunites to win money each day. I tend to do the free spins each day and then whenever get to 100k coins I do the Manchester scratchcard to earn a few pennies.
Not a huge win but for keeping bit of money in there earning a lot more than interest in any other bank but also a great chance to win.
This is another free daily competition, where you can complete tasks to win tickets.
I tend to press games and leave in the background to get my 100 tickets a day and then spin the wheel that can win a few pennies on its own and more tickets for the daily draw.
Over the last few months redeemed over £30 worth of shopping vouchers
This is another survey or get paid to site, similar to swagbucks. But similar to swagbucks I am not a fan of the surveys or other offers. Altohough still do them occasionally
But with inbox pounds there is a great opportunity to earn easy money by searching. Do 20 searches on their platform and get a pence after each 4 searches.
Then also click on their daily emails as well to boost income
Withdrawal is at £20 cash, but staying consistent can get you there a couple of times a year. For just a couple of minutes work each day. Excellent task to do whilst on your tea break.
The most important thing for me if you are trying to earn money online is finding what works to your schedule budget your time and do the ones that best suit you and give you the best for your time.
I would love to hear what you are using to earn money in your spare time, and always happy to help anyone get started.
