Make Money for the Holidays
1. Deliver food with UberEats
UberEats is looking for food delivery drivers to work on their own schedules. This is a flexible way to earn money using your bike, scooter, or car! If you don’t meet the standards for driving with Uber or your not comfortable driving strangers around, then this is a great alternative to making quick cash.

Shopkick is one of the best ways to earn gift cards to put towards Christmas gifts. It took me about 2 weeks to earn a $10 gift card to Target. The great thing is that very little work is involved! You earn points just by walking into a store. Then you have the option to scan items to earn points. Shopkick usually has a few items you can earn points for if you purchase.
PRO TIP: I drove by the entrance of a couple stores and Shopkick gave me the points!
Swagbucks has several ways you can start earning extra cash…search the internet through an extension provided by Swagbucks and earn “swagbucks” (points) just for doing your normal searches. You can also earn swagbucks for watching TV through their app, taking surveys, following the Swagbucks FB page for special codes, and more! You can use your Swagbucks to redeem Amazon gift cards!
6. User Testing
I love User Testing! I just recently started working with User Testing. The work takes approximately 15-20 minutes and you are paid $10. Your money is deposited into your PayPal account 7 days after you submit your task. It’s quick, easy, and totally worth your time.
7. Rent Your Room Out with Air BnB
If you have extra space in your home, then renting a room out during the holiday season is a great way to make money for Christmas. The holiday season is a big travel time for many people and you can earn money without putting in too much extra work.
It may take a little work up front to make sure that your room is ready for guests. You might want to invest in new sheets, bedding, new towels, and some nice toiletries to have available in the bathroom. That small investment should help you with positive reviews which will mean more visitors!
8. Bing Rewards
This is another super easy way to earn money quickly without doing too much outside of your routine. Sign up for Bing rewards here. Then use Bing when searching online.
9. Sell Your Stuff
Clean out clutter and make quick cash for the holidays! This is a great way to get rid of your stuff and make some money for all the new gifts you will receive. Sell your items at
- local Consignment stores (for quick cash!)
- local Facebook Groups
- Amazon Trade-In
This is a super easy way to earn extra money if you need to lose weight and can practice self-control during the holidays! I won my diet bet and earned $17.99 that was directly deposited into my Paypal account. Dietbets take 4 weeks. You pay anywhere from $15 – $30 to join a diet bet. If you lose 4% of your weight (which averages to about 1-2 pounds per week) then you will split the pot with the other winners. If everyone makes their goal then you will at least earn back what you paid in. Stay healthy, lose weight, and make some cash!
