Extra Ways To Earn Quick Cash

9. Borrow

When I really need cash quickly, I have no problem reaching out to friends (only the really close ones) or family to see if they can assist. It’s not fun asking for money, but if you promise to pay them back (and actually do it) you won’t feel so bad needing to borrow money in the first place.

10. Use Amazon Trade-In

If you don’t mind your quick cash coming in the form of an Amazon gift card, then checking out Amazon’s trade-in program could be a lucrative option for you. Amazon will accept used electronics, DVDs, CDs, and books and offer you cash back as a gift card.

11. Become Part of a Study

This type of work is for those individuals that don’t mind being poked and prodded. You could make a minimum of $25 per study if you qualify, but that price may vary based on the type of study being done.

12. Focus Groups

Test new products, taste new snacks or drinks, or even watch a TV show. All of these are ways you can get paid as part of a focus group, just for being someone’s guinea pig. If you’re okay with putting yourself out there to try new things, you can net anywhere from $75 – $150 for your efforts.

13. Advertise on Your Car

You could get quick cash just for doing something as simple as putting an advertisement on your car. This kind of gig is only beneficial for people who drive a lot. Companies want their advertisements to be seen after all.

At least this option is hassle free and doesn’t cost you anything up front. Most campaigns last a few months and drivers can make up to $100 a month in extra cash.

14. Play Free Scratch Offs

Lucktastic is a free and fun way to earn cash and prizes. The instant win scratch offs can potentially earn you a great amount of cash quickly. But since this is all based on luck, it’s probably not the most reliable source to earn money if you are really in a bind.

Yet, as a free app, it’s fun to try your chance at winning every day for minimal effort.

15. Top Bet

This tip is more of a gamble, but online sports betting can make you some quick cash depending on how much you’re willing to wager. Plus it’s pretty simple and fun. You’ll want to be brush up on your knowledge about the spreads and matchups before finalizing your bet.

16. Lose Weight

For anyone trying to lose weight, you can essentially bet on yourself for a chance to win money just for losing weight. Winners can win up to $10K! In they participate in the team challenge. But in order to win, you have to actively lose weight and meet your goal within a set amount of time.

17. Cut Back

It’s never fun to cut back expenses, but if you’re looking for quick cash, sometimes the best bet is to hold on to the money you already have and cut back on anything considered unnecessary, such as bar hopping and eating out.

18. Find Unclaimed Money

The government may owe you money and you don’t even know it! If the government, business or employer can’t find your address to send you your check, this money gets turned over to an account full of unclaimed money.

Check out your state’s government webpage to see if there’s anymore that’s owed to you. Or you can check out or

Quick Cash From Banks and Credit Cards

19. Take Out A Personal Loan

If you need a sizable amount of money, taking out a personal loan is probably the quickest way to gain the funds you need. If your credit history is good, then it should take no time at all to get approved.

While this option is great when you really need a decent amount of cash, you must keep in mind that you will have to pay back the loan and that interest rates can be a bit high, depending on the bank you choose.

20. Credit Card Cash Advance

If taking out a loan doesn’t work for you, then a credit card cash advance is also an option. Basically this means that you are drawing funds directly from your credit card to put cash in your pocket.

Unlike a standard ATM withdrawal, there is often a 10% – 15% fee that comes along with a credit card cash advance, plus you will have to pay the money back.

21. Open a New Checking or Investment Accounts

Simply opening a new checking or investment account at a bank of your choosing can lead to a pretty sweet sign-up bonus. Not all banks offer this, so you’ll want to shop around.

Most banks will offer anywhere from $50 – $200 to open a new account with them. Sometimes there are qualifying activities you will need to complete before you see the bonus money in your account. Just be sure to read the fine print before making the commitment with a new bank.

22. Open a New Credit Card

Taking advantage of credit card bonuses is a great way to make some extra cash, though you will have to spend money in order to get money. There are several great credit card bonuses available from different providers, but below are the top 3 I think are worth checking out.

23. Take Advantage of Refer-A-Friend Programs

If you are already affiliated with a bank, you should take the time to check out their refer-a-friend program. A lot of banks offer this and will pay you up to $50 or more, just to refer friends and family to their bank.

They will need to sign up with the bank in order for you to receive your bonus. Check out this article for some of the best bank refer-a-friend programs.

24. Employee Referral Program

A lot of bigger businesses offer employee referral programs. If you work at a company that offers this, then you should try to take advantage and start having friends or family send in their resumes for qualifying positions.

At the low end, you could get as much as $200 for referring someone who is hired. Some companies will require the employee to meet the standard 90 day probation period before paying you your bonus.

Quick Cash By Selling or Renting

25. Sell Clothes, Bags and Shoes Online

Digging through your closet and scrounging up items to sell is a great way to make money quickly and reduce clutter. If you have items in good, wearable condition, chances are you can sell it online.

There are several online sources worth checking out, but some of the best are eBay, Letgo, Craigslist, ThredUp, and VarageSale. If you have a large stash of items, you can quickly gain a nice lump of cash.

26. Sell To Consignment Shops

If dealing with invoices, packaging materials and driving to the post office sounds like a hassle, you will be better off checking out your local consignment shops.

Consignment shops generally take your sellable merchandise and put them out on the floors of their store. When your items sell, you will get a notification and can then come in and collect your cash. You won’t make a lot of money doing this, but it is nice to earn some cash in hand.

27. Yard Sale

When you really want to try to get rid of items fast and make a few bucks, the best thing to do is have a yard sale or garage sale. If you have 50 items and list everything for a $1, that’s an easy $50 you can make with minimal effort.

Granted you’ll have to sit there and hope for people to be interested in your stuff…but you will be surprised by what people will buy, especially if it is cheap. And if you don’t have a yard, ask to use a friend or family members.

28. Sell Through Facebook

This one is great when you want to stick with selling to local people only. Selling on Facebook is basically having your own virtual Facebook Yard Sale.

You simply post what you have available and then make arrangements for items to be picked up or delivered. It’s perfect for getting rid of bigger items like a couch or dresser, and baby items tend to sell really fast with minimal negotiating involved.

29. Sell Electronics

A few of us may be guilty of buying CDs and DvDs that end up spending years unused in a back corner of the entertainment center. If you need the cash and the extra space, all you need to do is select a few relics you are comfortable giving up.

30. Sell Old Gift Cards

Start gathering those gift cards your received around Christmas and your birthday and make a profit by selling them at a lower price than the gift card value. You can easily make $20 off of a $25 gift card or go as low as $15 for a $25 gift card.

You can also sell gift cards online through sites like Cardpool and Raise.

31. Sell Water/ Soda at Events

Before trying this one, make sure it’s legal to set up a cooler outside your local sporting events or concerts. Often you can get a case of water and sodas for cheap from Costco and sell them at an elevated price at events.

Trust me people will buy your items because you will at least be cheaper than buying water or soda from inside the venue. If you tweak your pricing reasonably, you should make enough to cover the initial cost of everything and have a little extra on the side.

32. Sell Hair

The type of hair that sells the best is usually medium thickness, un-dyed and undamaged. On average, someone with at least 10 inches of hair that fits the description above can earn anywhere from $50-$100.

33. Sell Sperm

The process of selling your sperm to reproductive clinic or bank is actually quite extensive. You are someone’s future donor after all. You’ll need to undergo a background check and some medical testing before you’ll be accepted.

But, once you get through those hurdles, donors can earn anywhere from $50 – $125 per donation and can do this 2-3 times a week.

34. Sell Photos

Turn those iPhone photos you’ve been storing into potential money makers. With Foap, you can earn $5 for every one of your photos that they sell. That may not seem like much, but every penny counts.

Similarly, you can sell photos as stock images to Shutterstock, Dreamstime, and iStockphoto.

Stock photos are typically generic and are then bought and sold as royalty free images for the general public to use.

35. Sell Art

When it comes to art, you will be surprised by what people are interested in. If you have some pieces lying around that you think you could sell, go for it!

You can check out sites like Craigslist or Etsy or even set out a few pieces in your yard as a mini art gallery for people in your area to check out.

36. Sell Scrap Metal

You won’t make much by selling scrap metal, but when you need quick cash it works. Copper and aluminum are some of the more valuable metals and you can expect to earn around $2 or more for a pound.

If you don’t have a lot of scrap metal around, ask friends and family to save their cans for you and it wouldn’t hurt to check around trash sites for cans or wire.

37. Sell Textbooks

As a student you can be left with a mound of textbooks by the time you graduate. Instead of giving these away to the library or simply tossing, you can try to sell these back to your school as used textbooks for new students.

Or you can sell to sites like and Trust me, future budget-conscious students will appreciate your old materials at a discount price.

38. Sell Notes

Another tip perfect for students is to sell your notes to your fellow peers. You’ll have those students that play hooky and miss a class for whatever reason and will later need to catch up.

That’s where you can step in and offer them a chance to copy your notes for a small fee.

39. Publish a Book

For all the writers out there with a story to tell or a novel completed, but unpublished, look no further than Amazon as a source to self publish an eBook. Everyday eBooks are becoming more and more popular, and it’s fairly easy to publish your own work.

With Amazon Kindle eBook, you can publish your book and set your price as low as $.99. If you’re an unknown author, keeping the price low will help get people to buy and start spreading your name around. For every eBook sold, you get to keep 70% of the royalties.

40. Sell Skills

Anyone with any kind of expertise in a certain skill, can benefit from teaching that skill to others for a set price. This could literally be anything. Cooking, guitar playing, tennis, chess…someone wants to learn these things and you could be that perfect person to teach them.

All of this can be done through a site called SkillShare.

41. Sell Plasma

Depending on where you live and where you donate, compensation prices for donating plasma will vary. In general, you can expect $20 – $50 per donation and you can do this every few days or weekly, depending on how you feel afterward.

42. Grow/Sell Vegetables

My father-in law has made quite a bit of cash from selling cherry tomatoes that he grew right in his backyard. He’s got a certain knack for growing them and always ends up with more than he can handle, so it worked in his favor that he had neighbors and friends willing to buy the extras.

If this sounds like you, then you can do the same thing and sell to friends and neighbors for a far more reasonable price than what you see at grocery stores. It doesn’t have to be just tomatoes, but anything you grow in your garden from cucumbers to spinach. Folks love fresh produce at a good price.

43. Pawn Your Valuables

If you have something of value lying around the house, chances are you can make some money off of it at the pawn shop. Plus, even if you pawn the item, you have thirty days to get the item back, though you will have to pay interest.

44. Rent Your Car

This is perfect for city dwellers who have a car they aren’t using because they opt to take public transportation. Instead of your car sitting there collecting dust, you could be making money by having someone else drive your car for a minimum of $5 an hour.

45. Rent Out Clothes

Fashionistas rejoice, you can finally put that extensive closet and sense of fashion to use by letting people rent your stylish clothes.

The process is simple; submit your closet selections for approval, price your items at 5%-10% of the retail value and then just get ready to ship. You’ll get to keep 80% of the proceeds.

46. Rent A Room

If you’re a homeowner with some extra space not being used, consider renting out a room and earn some extra income. This works if you own an apartment too and have a spare bedroom. Spare Room is a bit more reliable than using a source like Craigslist and comes with excellent reviews.

47. Become an AirBnB Host

While renting a room is a great way to earn extra cash, renting your entire house can really pay off. If you’re in a fun city and travel a lot or are taking a vacation, consider setting up your place as an AirBnB host. Most of the money received goes right to you, minus a 3% service fee.

48. Rent a Parking Spot

In some cities, people struggle to find and keep good parking spaces. That’s where you can step in and save the day by offering to rent out your parking space if you have a spare one or if you simply don’t use yours.

Quick Cash Earned Through Side Hustles

49. DoorDash

DoorDash is essentially the Uber for food deliveries. Once you sign up as a Dasher, the app will let you accept orders for delivery. You get paid for every order you deliver and you keep 100% of the tips you may receive.

50. Deliver Groceries

Talk about an easy way to make quick cash! Companies like Instacart allow you to earn extra cash in your spare time by shopping for others. You can choose how often and when you work. Plus, you get paid weekly.

51. Tutoring

In college, I found tutoring to be the perfect way to make extra money. Back then, I was able to go through the school and be assigned students needing extra help. Today, you can reach a wider audience by checking out Wyzant and tutor from the comfort of your home.

52. Personal Training

One of my good friends makes a decent side income as a personal trainer. The key to success is building up a study clientele, so start by reaching out to friends, family and even coworkers.

You can become affiliated with a specific gym or you can opt to offer private sessions outside of a gym. If you work privately, you can at least benefit from keeping 100% of your earnings.

53. Babysit

This was another job I took up frequently while in college. It was the perfect way to earn money and get in some study time, because usually by the time I arrived the kids were already asleep.

For those comfortable with children, I highly recommend snagging a few babysitting jobs a few weekends or weeknights out of the month. The basic going rate for most sitters starts around $15 an hour, but that can change if you’re in a big city or if there are more than two kids to look after.

54. House Sit

People take vacations and they can’t always board their pets or expect their plants to survive while they are away. That’s when a home sitter comes in handy. In most cases you’ll be required to physically live in the home while the owner is away, so think of it as a mini vacay for yourself.

55. Pet Sit

Pet owners know how hard it can be to balance work and getting home in time to let the dog out. Pet sitting gives owners an opportunity to have someone else care for their pet while they are away.

With Rover, you can find several pet sitting positions as well as simple dog walking jobs or just dropping in to give a pet some attention after they’ve been alone for a few hours.

56. Freelance for Fiverr

Some freelance options you can find on Fiverr are graphic design, photography, web designing, copywriting and several others. You essentially market yourself and gigs can start as low as $5 per gig.

57. Become a Driver

If you own a car, then a great way to earn quick cash is to become a driver for either Lyft or Uber. Both have their perks, so you’ll have to decide which one works best for you.

With both you’ll get to choose your own hours and how often you work. Some folks working as a driver full time claim they make $700 or more a week.

58. Become a Tasker

With TaskRabbit you can find pretty much any kind of job that needs to be done around the house. Getting set up is pretty easy, but keep in mind that 15% of whatever you earn for each task will go to TaskRabbit to cover their fees.

59. Become a Handy Pro

Similar to TaskRabbit, Handy lets you become a professional at basically whatever needs done around the house, from cleaning, to assembling furniture, to helping someone pack. Some of their top professionals make more than $1K a week!

60. Find Quick Gigs

Next time you have free time and want to make quick cash, consider taking up some quick, side gigs. You could end up working as a last minute server at a banquet or even as a brand ambassador for a few hours.The gigs really are quick and the payments lucrative.

61. Help Out Friends and Family

When you don’t want to bother with fancy websites or apps, your best bet is to ask friends or family if there are any tasks you can help out with that they are willing to pay you for. Be reasonable in your monetary expectations.

62. Photography

For those with somewhat decent photography skills and a working, high-end camera, you can start a little side business as a photographer. Choose your own hours and work, whether just family portraits in the park or weddings on the weekends.

63. Get Crafty

Projects that you may consider just a fun side hobby could actually start making you some money. Etsy is a great source for selling homemade items and all kinds of crafts are welcome, from candles to knitted sweaters. Etsy pretty much has a niche for everyone.

64. Drink Beer

Beer lovers, this tip is for you. Finally you can make money off of enjoying a craft brew or two and sharing your experience. You’ll need to provide a writing sample in order to be selected as a Secret Hopper, but it’s for sure a fun way to make some quick cash and enjoy a cold one while you’re at it.

65. Lawn Mowing

I know several people who do this in the summer and earn a quick $20, per yard. Not everyone has the time or inclination to mow their own lawn, so if you are looking to make quick cash, consider offering you lawn mowing expertise.

66. Snow Shoveling

Similar to above, you can offer your neighbors and family your snow shoveling services. This one isn’t as frequent as mowing the lawn (unless you live in a snowy area), but again, a great way to make quick cash…that is, if you don’t mind the cold.

67. Landscaping

Pulling weeds, planting flowers, laying down some mulch…these things don’t happen on their own and I’m sure there are people out there who would gladly pay you to make their yard look beautiful.

68. Coach

If you are particularly sport savvy and feel like you could work with kids or teens, then coaching can be a fun side hustle to have. You’ll want to check with your local sporting league association to see if there are any certificates required or training you’ll need to do.

69. Referee

There’s basically some form of a referee for most sports, so finding something that fits your sports knowledge base is bound to pop up. Referees can earn as low $50 for a game or can charge a set fee by the hour.

70. Teach Music

I’ve had friends who were able to quit their day job because they start earning more money giving music lessons. This may not work out the same way for you because it will depend on what instrument you play and how many students you can get signed up. But, as a means of making extra cash quickly, you can’t beat it.

71. Busking

Busking aka street performing, is a classic way to earn quick cash. Simply find a high traffic spot and commit to performing for a few hours. While you won’t go home with wads and wads of cash (or maybe you will if you’re really good), you won’t go home empty handed either.

72. Bake

Who doesn’t love sweet, delicious, homemade treats? Having a bake sale may sound old school and childish, but people love them.

Most of the time adults are always on the go, they forget to eat. So when they pass your table of chocolate chip cookies and lemon tarts, they’ll definitely end up buying one or two!

73. Cook

Eatwith allows you to post events, create menus and share your culinary skills with people from around the world, whether visitors from out of state or neighbors down the street. Hosts generally get paid within 48 hours after the hosted event.

74. Transcribe

Transcribing audio files may not sound like the most fun job in the world, but it is a perfect one to do in the evenings or on the weekend. You can pick and choose projects when convenient and get paid per project.

75. Social Media Promoter

Due to the high popularity and use of social media, social media promotion has become a real job for many people. Basically, it is your job to bring more visibility and traffic to someone’s social media accounts. By helping others get paid, you’ll get paid.

76. Give An Honest Review

With Slicethepie, you earn cash for every review that you leave. I like using Slicethepie to review music, but you also have opportunities to review clothes and other things. The better your review the better you get paid.

77. Golf Caddy

If you have no plans this weekend, call up your local golf course and see if anyone needs a golf caddy. You don’t have to make this a regular thing, but simply let the golf course know that you can be available as a call-in if one of the regular golf caddies calls out sick.

78. Fix Computers

My dad is great with computers so everyone comes to him with their computer issues. He quickly realized he can start charging people a small fee for the work he was doing and no one complained. If you are a computer wiz too, let your friends and family know you can help out for a set price.

79. Staff Write for Blogs

Some bloggers, especially owners of fairly large, high traffic blogs, pay staff writers to contribute articles. Most often you get paid per article, either by the word count or a flat rate.

Search around on the internet for a few blogs that you feel like you could contribute to and submit a resume and writing sample.

80. Offer to Be Designated Driver

Consider this both a lucrative endeavor and a great way to make sure your inebriated friends get from place to place safely. By offering to be designated driver for the night, you can essentially charge per person a flat rate for the night.

This means you’ll be the one sober, but you’ll also be the one with extra cash in their pocket at the end of the evening.

81. Carpool Driver

Check in with your coworkers to see if anyone would want to carpool to work (assuming you all live close to one another). You can offer to be the driver and ask everyone for a weekly amount of money to cover the cost of gas and the extra wear and tear on your car.

82. Bartend

Bartending is a fun way to make quick cash, both in the form of a paycheck and in the form of tips. The more popular the bar and the friendlier you are, the more tips you can expect to earn.

83. Cater

I had a coworker who worked full time during the day and on the weekends he worked as a caterer. He loved the extra income and getting to attend fancy events. Plus at the end of the evening, all that extra food had to go home with someone and he was happy to accept.

84. YouTube Partner Program

Studies are showing that more people are watching YouTube than regular TV these days and that’s because YouTube is fun. You can pretty much find anything and everything to watch on YouTube.

Starting a YouTube channel is a fun way to make cash, but it won’t always be quickly. You’ll need to reach at least 1000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours within a year before YouTube pays you. But, once you are set up, you’ll start getting a study paycheck.

85. TV/Movie Extra

You could make about $90 a day working as an extra. Those extras connected with a union can earn up to $300 for eight hours of work. You’ll have to commit to being on set as long as needed, but it’s an easy way to make quick cash just by blending into the background.

86. Clean Houses

You can start your very own house cleaning business or you can choose to work for a company part time. It’s not glamorous work, but the pay is decent. If you work independently, you can request to receive cash in hand after your work is complete.

87. Mock Juror

Essentially, as a mock juror you’ll get paid to participate in mock trials. Lawyers do these in order to prepare for a real trial and map out their strategy. You could get paid anywhere from $5 – $10 per case you sit on and you can work a few of these at once.

88. Haul Junk

If you have a car and extra time, offer to haul someone’s trash or throw away items to the junkyard. You can charge reasonably based on the gas used to get from place to place and extra if you are required to help load everything up.

89. Life Model

This tip isn’t for the faint of heart or shy of body. But, if you okay with showing some (okay a lot) of skin for the sake of art, then you should check out your local university or art school  to see if they need a nude model. Most models can earn anywhere from $15-$25 per session.

90. Programmer

Programmers are always going to be in high demand. Whether you’re creating fancy computer programs or nifty, new apps, someone is interested in your services and will pay you well for them.

91. Web Design

Similar to programming, web design is also a highly valued skill. Companies are always looking for ways to spruce up their webpages and rely on web designers to help their company stand out from others.

92. Teach English

Qkids allows you to pick your own hours and you get to make anywhere from $15-$22 an hour just to teach English from the comfort of your home. All you need is a firm grasp of the English language and a working computer.

93. Virtual Assistant

A Virtual Assistant is someone who will provide administrative and business support services to a company or individual. It takes a lot of skill and patience to handle someone administrative task remotely. But, it’s worth checking out if you’re looking for quick cash.

94. Ghost Writing

Ghost writing may feel a bit like cheating, but it pays well. You might be writing someone’s college essay or an eBook, but as long as you’re getting paid for your hard work, there isn’t much to complain about. Content Authority, Scripted and Textbroker are also great sites to check out for ghost writing jobs.

95. Consulting

If you’re an expert in a particular subject, i.e. dating, nutrition, fitness, finance, etc, you can make a nice side income as a consultant. You’ll need to market yourself a bit to build a client base, but once word of mouth spreads, your bank account will thank you.

96. Party Planning

If you are highly organized and have an eye for detail, consider offering your services to friends, family or coworkers as a party planner. I had a coworker who organized her boss’s daughter’s Holy Communion party and made a nice amount of cash for something she loves doing.

97. Dropshipping

Dropshippers basically sell anything online without needing to touch the actual product. Sites like Shopify allow you to set up an online storefront and process sales that ship directly from the manufacturer to the buyer.

98. Brand Ambassador

Working as a brand ambassador is a fun side hustle for anyone who is energetic and friendly. As a brand ambassador you are essentially representing the brand and trying to sell their product. Try checking out a local grocery store to see if they are working with any brands.

99. Editing/Proofreading

As an editor and proofreader, you can offer your services to companies or individuals looking for an extra set of eyes to make sure their work checks out. Get paid per project or even consider taking a contract position with a company.

100. Tour Guide

If you live in a city frequented by tourists regularly, then consider working as a tour guide. You’ll need to be fairly familiar with your city and friendly, but it’s the kind of side hustle that you can do every few weekends for extra income.

101. Become a Tester

Make an easy and quick $10 via PayPal for every 20 minute video you watch through the website UserTesting. UserTesting pays you to visits apps or sites and perform a series of tasks, and share your thought out loud.
