Are you looking for a lazy way to earn some extra cash online?
I mean something that doesn’t take a lot of mental effort and can be done while you are watching TV (another episode of Paw Patrol, maybe?) or maybe sipping a glass of wine at the end of a long day . . .
Survey sites that pay directly to a Paypal account are a popular easy way to earn money without much effort, no experience, and no skill level required.
If you are just getting started with a side hustle, then taking surveys is a great way to start making some money on the side. For more ideas to get started working from home check out this post Want to work from home? Get started here!

You can make $100 – $200 per month by using a survey strategy just by taking surveys
It’s ALL about strategy! I’ve learned over the past year that most things don’t *just happen* for people…

This strategy will help you be more productive when it comes to taking surveys as a side hustle!
1 – Create a separate email account just for taking surveys. You will get a ton of emails from survey sites and you don’t want to bombard your regular email account with survey emails. It will drive you crazy!
2 – Sign up for ALL the survey companies. You won’t be taking surveys from every company every day. Signing up for a variety of survey companies will allow you more opportunities to take surveys and each company pays out at different times so you will have more consistent cash each month.
3 – Below, I break down each survey company and share with you tips to make the most out of your time with each survey company. As you start taking surveys make a note of the survey companies that pay you the most money and send you the best surveys. Focus on those companies to get the best results!
You may be skeptical about making money with surveys because of scams. Only sign up for survey sites that DO NOT require you to pay to join their site. It’s also a good idea to do your own research of each survey site before you sign up. You can get a good idea of reviews found in places like Reddit and the sub reddit: beer money.

Have you heard of Ibotta?
Ibotta is a cell phone app that is easy to use everywhere you go to buy groceries! You can easily earn cash back rebates and transfer the money into your Paypal account. This is seriously one of my favorite ways to save money at the grocery store!
I love this app because it is so easy to use and now it’s just part of my routine when I grocery shop. You can use this at your grocery store and even Target and Walmart! You simply find the items you want to buy in your app and then scan your purchases and receipt when you get home and put everything away.
The best part is you get to earn cash back on items that usually don’t ever have coupons like fruits, vegetables, milk, and eggs! Also, they have many items each month that are NOT BRAND SPECIFIC. So you can choose any brand in that category and still save!
If you do this all year you will have a nice chunk of change saved up from doing what you already do! Join Ibotta and earn a $10 cash bonus!
