So, your in a bind and need some cash quick, preferably today? Here are some tried and true ways to make fast, same day cash.
If you are like most people, you’ve heard about people making money online, but you’ve never really understood how it works. You understand a little about it, but overall, it just seems too complicated, and isn’t the internet just full of scams vs. people actually making real money anyway?
I have a few answers for you on how you can get started making money online or offline fast with no type of start-up cost whatsoever. If you want and need extra income quick, I wouldn’t pass up this opportunity to learn how you can start bringing in some extra cash right away.
First off, there isn’t just one way to make money online or offline – there are hundreds and thousands of ways. I’m talking, real, legitimate, scam-free ways to get money fast – many of which you can start right now today. Here are a few ways that several people, myself included, have made money online and offline. I work many of these opportunities still today.
If you are looking to make extra money and get paid the same day, here are some great options. I’ve done them all myself. Some of these get paid the same day opportunities are offline as well and will require a car or bus ride or some form of effort on your part, but they are all worth it if you need money now.
Offline Opportunities that pay cash the same day
Focus Groups – A focus group is when a research company calls you in to their facility to talk about or review a specific product. The groups can be anywhere from 30 minutes long to a few hours long. Most focus groups pay between $50 – 75 for each hour you participate. It’s an excellent way to get extra, same day cash and at times, even free products.
To get signed up with these companies you have to search and find the companies near you. The Green book is one of the best directories for finding focus group companies. Get a nice list of companies in your area and then go to their website or call them to get added to their database. When a particular group matches your personal demographics that you filled out when you registered, they will call to see if you are available. At one point, I was getting called weekly, but I worked a full-time job and couldn’t fit all of the groups in my schedule. The most I’ve ever been paid from a focus group is $250 cash.
Paid Taste Tests – Taste tests are a lot like focus groups, but you are specifically there to try a certain food or beverage and then fill out a questionnaire on your thoughts about the product. Taste tests usually last from 30 minutes to an hour and pay about $20 – $40. We only have one taste test company here in my area. I get paid $34 in the form of a check for each test I do. You get paid directly after the test. Once, I got called in to try specific brands of vodka. The test lasted 2.5 hours to allow time for the alcohol to leave your blood stream. We actually didn’t consume that much vodka anyway during the test. At the end of the group, we all had to have a breathalyzer to make sure we were legal to drive. That was a unique group, but it paid well – almost $200.
A few more offline things you can do to make money the same day are: Sell an item on Craigslist, babysit or pet sit, work at a same day labor company, recycle items you have like cans, glass or metals, donate blood, have a garage sale, sell your used children’s items at Once upon a child or other consignment type shops, sell your clothes or goods at a consignment shop.
I’m sure there are dozens of other ways to make money right away offline, just be creative in your thinking and use your resources.
Online Opportunities that pay cash the same day
Most online opportunities pay you at set-times, such as every 2 weeks or after you earn $20, but there are some ways you can earn money the same day online. For any of these opportunities, you will need a PayPal account in order for your money to be transferred to you immediately. It’s free to sign up for PayPal, but you will want to so it right away because you will need to wait for your debit card, which takes from 5 – 10 business days to get. Once you have your card, you can use any of these opportunities and choose to get paid immediately via PayPal.
Sell on EBay – When you sell your items online at EBay, a lot of times, if someone buys your item, you get paid before you even ship the item. It just depends on how the seller pays. Over 75% of the time when I sell an item on EBay, It hits my PayPal account that day. It’s free to sign up and use EBay, so you could literally decide to sell a DVD today, list it and sell it and get paid in just a few hours.
Sell a Fiverr Gig – Fiverr is a somewhat new concept to most people. It’s an online community where you can post different things you will do for $5. These jobs are called gigs. Some of the gigs that you see people selling on Fiverr are: Offering to help someone set-up their own blog, send a Twitter tweet out to their large group o followers about your product, website or company, offer recipes or other useful information, singing or dancing grams (clean of course) and loads of other things that are all across the board. It’s actually pretty funny the things people are getting paid $5 for.
As far as payment on Fiverr goes, it’s kind of the same as I spoke about EBay. Most gigs you sell, will hit your PayPal card the same or next day. There are people making thousands of dollars on Fiverr, so check-it out and see if there is anything you can come up with to offer people for $5.00
I’ve also come across a few excellent blog posts that list ways to make legitimate money fast.
- The Christian Personal Finance Blog has an article, “15 way ways to make $200 in two weeks“. The ideas are great, many similar to what I list here, but this article has generated hundreds of comments where people chime in on what they would do to make $200 fast.
- The blog “Financial Highway” has a great and helpful article “30+ Ways To Make More Money” that lists, several that I have not listed here.
So, there you have it. If you have any other ideas of making quick, same day cash, just post a comment to share. I would love to hear your ideas!
