I'm in no way saying you will substitute an income with these methods. But there are ways to make money or earn items and discounts on items easily while you hold down the home front. All of these options I have personally tried and though I'm certainly not making an income, its nice to have something for little effort that I can accomplish right on my laptop as I feed my kids.
These are just the methods I've tried. There are many ways to earn a little bit while you are at home.
If you see something you like and you have the point my suggestion is to grab it while you can. Items and discounts don't stay on the list for long.
My only issues with Viggle is if you have a lot of back ground noise, which us stay at home parents often have with children running around and toys making noise, then its hard for the app to link up to the show. If you have an old smart phone or a table and a wireless internet connection, you can put the app on that device and leave it next to the speaker. Also it take a while to accumulate the points need to get something worth your while.
For my first purchase I went to JCPenney to buy some much needed clothes online. I not only found a coupon code on Ebates for 10% off the purchase over $50 but with my purchase I made $16.32. Plus, just by signing up I got a $10 gift card to Target (Target was my choice but there are about 6 major retailers to pick from.) Best part is there are no strings, nothing hidden, just go to Ebates, find the store you want, the link sends you right to the site, and you shop no different than you would have otherwise. You earn by how much you spend. Its that easy! Then, periotically they will mail you a check. No need to cash it out, they will do it for you. You can earn money for each person who signs up that you send an invitation to. This method is highly recommended!
If you are interested in any of these options just click the link and start earning. I'm experimenting with more options like a mobile app that asks you to scan items in store. We will see how that goes but I may need to update this list later. But these options listed above, I have tried. Some are more successful than others but each are worth a try. My most recommended are Ebates (if you shop online you're a fool if you don't sign up for Ebates!) and Viggle. If you are a Pampers user the reward app makes it very easy to put in those rewards points (check the back of the wipes!). Swagbucks, I'm still trying to see if time and value is worth it for me. I have given up on Inbox Dollar. I earned fast then it was very difficult to earn after the first few days.
Good luck earning money and items at home. Hope you find what works for you.
