Top 5 Ways to Make Easy Cash – Source: OurMoneyMarket Lending Pty Ltd ABN 64 605 231 669 Australian Credit Licence 488228.
So, you’re looking for ways to make a few extra dollars. I’ve been there! When I quit my job to start OurMoneyMarket I was in need of some extra cash to get by. The tasks/jobs I was looking for didn’t have to pay much, but they had to meet at least one of the following: (i) the job had to be easy; (ii) the job need to be quick; or (iii) I could do the job at a time convenient to me.
Luckily, I found enough jobs to make me, on average, an extra $200 a week. That’s an extra $10,400 a year!
So, without further delay, here are my top 5 ways to make easy cash – not become a millionaire cash, but easy extra cash:
#1 Easy Cash With Mystery ShopperTask Difficultly Rating: Easy
Cash Reward Rating: 4/5
Oh, Mystery Shopper, how good you were to me. With Mystery Shopper, there are all kinds of jobs you can do, and you get to pick the jobs you want. Some of the jobs I did included:
It took me, on average, around 30 minutes to complete any given task and complete the service report you must submit.
#2 AirtaskerTask Difficultly Rating: Easy to Hard
Cash Reward Rating: 5/5
Airtasker is an online peer-to-peer website that allows people to post any kind of task or job they need completed, and whether they need it done online or in person.
With Airtasker, you can make money doing all kinds of things (e.g. writing blogs, helping someone with their resume, wait in line for the next iPhone, caring for puppies, you name it!). Generally, you stand to make between $20-$400 for tasks advertised on Airtasker.
#3 Online SurveysTask Difficultly Rating: Easy
Cash Reward Rating: 1/5
OK, so I never really did these surveys properly, but I think that’s justified given they seem to falsely advertise the time each survey takes.
Basically, with sites like, Valued Opinions, you can complete surveys that take anywhere between 5 to 60 minutes, and earn between $1 to $20 for your time.
It’s not exciting money, but it’s really easy and you can do it just before bed, or during T.V ad breaks.
#4 Sell Clothes & Furniture OnlineTask Difficultly Rating: Easy
Cash Reward Rating: 5/5
Selling your old clothes, furniture etc. online is a great way to make extra cash. It also removes clutter…and will make those you’re living with super happy.
To be honest I didn’t make regular money from this (sold a couch once for ~$1,000). However, friends of mine have regularly sold their old clothes on eBay and Gumtree and claimed to make good cash doing this.
#5 Search the WebTask Difficultly Rating: Easy
Cash Reward Rating: 3/5
Sometimes saving cash on everyday expenses is as good as earning cash. Simply add PricePal to your web browser and get notified of discounts when shopping at some of your favourite retailers!
Due to this little beauty, I regularly received around $20 a week in cash back when I shopped at Woolworths. Friends of mine would save up to 6% when shopping at UNIQLO, Cotton On, Asos.com, etc.
