I'll be the first to admit that some methods for earning a little extra cash on the side can be very boring and sometimes I like to do something a little more engaging. Here's a list of a few interesting and fun ways to pad your wallet or earn nice rewards.
If the idea of getting paid to watch videos appeals to you, then Swagbucks TV is something worth checking out. You can watch videos from the mobile app and website to earn points which can be redeemed for many different types of gift cards or you can have funds sent straight to your Paypal account. The videos are often trailers for movies and TV shows as well as various other types of video clips. Full Review
While Perk TV offers several different ways of amassing redeemable points, the best way is by watching videos through the mobile app, which is available for many different devices. The big perk to Perk (pun intended) is that the videos play in a loop so you don't have to select a new one every few minutes and you get credited for every video that plays. Points are redeemed for Paypal cash or gift cards. Full Review
Slicethepie is a place you can go to listen to some great music, give new artists important feedback and make a little money all at the same time. All you have to do is listen to a song, give your honest opinion about all the various aspects of what you heard like the quality of the music and lyrics, and you earn cash every time you do it. The more high quality reviews you write, the more you can earn. Full Review
Music XRay is another fun music reviewing site like Slicethepie but there's one big difference. While you can review many songs in a day on Slicethepie, you have to wait until you are emailed an invitation to review music at Music XRay. That doesn't mean it's not worth checking out though. If you enjoy music you might as well sign up for both! Full Review
GSN – Game Show Network – is a site where you can play games for the chance at winning some cash. Granted, this isn't a for-sure way to earn money but it's a fun way to try! You can play games for free or for cash if you upgrade your account and make at least a $10 deposit and these games can be worth a pretty penny if you win. Full Review
I've already mentioned Swagbucks TV as a way to earn some money while having fun but that's not the only option available. Swagbucks also offers a lot of different ways to accumulate redeemable points including games. Full Review
MyPoints is another rewards site where you can collect redeemable points for doing different activities like shopping, filling out surveys and so on. If you're looking for something FUN to do there, check out their list of games. Full Review
ChatAbout offers a lot of different ways to get rewarded for socializing including asking or answering questions and commenting on content. You can also earn by writing articles and reviews, answering polls, doing surveys and lots of other things. Full Review
Tsū is a fun new site very similar to Facebook where you socialize with people but you are paid for your participation. It's fun, engaging and profitable! You can go here to find a good review of the site.
If a lot of the extra cash options out there are boring to you, hopefully you'll find something interesting and profitable on this list to keep you busy and profitable for a long time.
