Earn Extra Cash By Taking Part In Surveys

I have just heard about another way of making a little bit of extra money. This is by taking part in different surveys for a range of companies who are looking to find out more about their customers or potential customers. You may think just like I did that this would hardly be worth your time or effort, however you may be surprised when you realize how much these companies are willing to pay.

A few days ago a friend of my daughters came round to our house to play. They are both twelve years of age and have known each other since primary school. This friend also stopped at our house for her evening meal and while at the dining table, eating her food, she started up quite an interesting conversation. She asked my daughter if she would be interested in joining her to take part in a survey which would be about the subject of children's banking.

I started to ask this girl, who is called Rose, what would be involved. Rose replied that a lady would be going round to her house on Saturday morning and would be asking her a series of questions about banking, for example who she banks with and how much money she attempts to save as a twelve year old. She continued that the meeting would last around an hour and a half for which she would be paid $20. If she then also kept a form of diary for a week, she would then receive another $10.

My daughter suddenly became very interested and asked me whether she would be able to go as well, I told her that she could.

Rose then told our family that she regularly took part in these surveys and had been introduced to the idea by a friend of her mothers. She stated that on average she made around $100 a month from taking part and completing these surveys, not bad for a twelve year old. I joked by asking her whether I could also go around on the Saturday. Emma replied that this survey was only aimed at school children but that her parents also regularly took part in other surveys and that she would let me know when the next one was going to take place.

The Saturday arrived and I took step-daughter to Rose's house. I started talking to her parents while I waited for the meeting to finish. Her parents then told me about their own experiences of completing different surveys and stated that even though it is not a massive amount of money that it is a lot for what you have to do. They also said that it helped them to pay a number of bills each month.

My daughter really enjoyed the meeting and came out kissing her $20. It beats washing your car, she said to me with a huge grin on her face.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…

Five Tips for Making Money from Home During the Pandemic?

TORONTO -- Even in the midst of a pandemic and near-shutdown of the economy, there are ways to improve your financial standing.

Financial coach David Lester appeared on CTV's Your Morning Thursday, to offer five suggestions of ways anyone can make money right now, even from home.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of people in a position where they're spending a lot more time at home.
That may mean more time for pursuing passions and exploring pastimes – something Lester said a savvy hobbyist can try to monetize.
"If there are any skills that you have – if you're an amazing chef, if you're great at decorating, whatever you can do from home – you can sell Zoom lessons," he said.
It may sound counter-intuitive, but Lester sees now as a good time to start a new business.
The key, he said, is that coronavirus-induced changes to society will require new products and services. This creates opportunities for anyone who can see a niche need coming, whether it be in onlin…
