Do you want to get Starbucks (or any other splurge) for free…every single day?! I’m talking un-budgeted, completely extra money in your pocket each and every day.
If you’d like to have an extra $5-$100 EVERY DAY to spend on fun stuff for yourself and your family, keep reading…
I don’t purchase Starbucks with our family money, but instead find unique ways to make extra money every day. My coffee costs $3.19/day, so I strive to make at least that per day in an off-the-wall way. (Usually I end up making more!) Below are five unique ways to make money every single day!
5 Unique Ways to Make Money Every Day
Ibotta is a site that pays you for shopping. All you do is scan your receipt into the Ibotta App after shopping and watch the cash back roll in. It works at more than 300 stores, including Target, Walmart, Food Lion, Kroger, Hotels.com, Einstein’s, Jamba Juice and many, many more. Almost everywhere I shop is on the app which makes for huge cash back potential!

Earn Free Gift Cards with Swagbucks
Swagbucks is the ultimate way to make money online by both getting cash back on purchases AND taking surveys! Here’s how it works: Shop online (Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc) and earn points; take fun surveys in your spare time and earn even more points. Heck, you can even earn points for searching the internet and playing games!

Write a Cheap Ebook
I wrote an Ebook last year called The Beginner’s Guide to Blogging. It’s priced at just $12 and helps new bloggers get their blogs up and running. A year and a half after it’s release, I’m still sell a few copies each week! Ebooks are easy to write (I wrote the whole thing in Microsoft Word, saved it as a PDF and uploaded to Gumroad) and create a very nice form of passive income. I get paid every Friday directly to my bank account.
If you’re interested in writing and selling Ebooks, I highly recommend starting your own blog so you can advertise them. Your blog can be basic with your name as your domain name. Simply write a few posts about your book(s) and create high-quality images to go with those posts so you can share them on Pinterest and other social platforms 🙂 That’s how I’m able to sell so many copies of my book!
Ok, I like Swagbucks and Ibotta the best, but with Ebates you get a free $10 when you spend your first $25. So, why not sign up and the next time you buy something online, go through Ebates so you can get your free $10?! And you may end up liking it and using it all the time, anyways!
Ebates is similar to Swagbucks in that you get cash back for shopping online (up to 6% back!). You also get money when you refer friends to use Ebates. So, consider posting your referral link onto your Facebook page to make even more money.
Start an Affiliate Blog
This is going to take the most work upfront, but it will guaranteed make you the most money long-term AND the income will eventually become passive.
An affiliate is where you recommend a product online to readers (this can be anything from a book on Amazon to clothes from Old Navy to an online course and more) and if they make a purchase, you receive a small commission. The more readers you get, the more buyers you’ll have, and the more money you’ll make.
Brainstorm things you’d be interested in selling as an affiliate and then start your own blog here. Again, this will take time to get up and running; but if you commit to 15-20 minutes per day, you will start to see the results pay off quickly!
Ideas for affiliate blogs include reviewing children’s products (toys, car seats, strollers, etc), book reviews, photography products, best products for pets, online course reviews, women’s clothing and much, much more.
And that’s it!
I promise finding little ways to make extra money every day makes a huge difference. I used to freelance write (one article paid $25) and I would make sure every single week I wrote at least one extra article for $25 so I could purchase my coffee. I have a friend who is an Uber driver who uses all of that money for clothing. The more she makes, the better her wardrobe is! I challenge you to find at least one way to make extra money this week!
