Side Hustles That Work: Pay for Back to School Shopping Watching Videos
Make money watching videos. It sounds like a dream job, right? While I’m still waiting back to hear back from Youtube to see if they’ll hire me full-time to watch videos, there’s a more realistic alternative to make money this way. It’s called Swagbucks.
Swagbucks is a site that pays you a small amount to watch Youtube videos, check out commercials for products, take surveys and discover new brands and products. You won’t get rich this way, or get to quit your job with Swagbucks, but you will be able to make some extra money idly sitting on your computer.
For all of the hours that you sit idly surfing Facebook or getting sucked into the never-ending Pinterest wormhole, you could be making extra money doing basically the same thing.
Swagbucks was my first side hustle. When I first started, I made around $5 a week and got paid out in Amazon gift cards. I saved up the gift cards and bought all of my cloth diapering supplies with the money that I made off of Swagbucks.
I’ve since used Swagbucks for Christmas presents, birthdays, anniversary gifts, vacation money, and even pay for back-to-school shopping!
There are no gimmicks and no tricks with Swagbucks. You complete the small task that they ask you to do, and you instantly get Swagbucks in your account.
I’ve learned a few tricks to make the most from Swagbucks. Checking more than one ad at a time, watching videos while we homeschool, checking in on the latest celebrity gossip, taking 1 answer surveys, and always making sure to meet the daily goals to name a few!
