Hey there! Since we're talking Christmas, I hope you've got your Christmas Budgeting List all printed off and ready to get to work for you. Maybe you've even started working on filling in the blanks, good job.
If you have a lot of people to buy for this Christmas, maybe you've even printed off a couple and that's great.
Look, I am all about spoiling the kids rotten around the holidays, but when it comes to the rest of the year, I am all about pinching those pennies and making money in every nook and cranny that I can. We have a goal to pay off the house sooner than the bank would hope for and some pretty lofty retirement goals as well.
Here are the ways that I am making money for Christmas this year:
1. VIP Voice The number of survey sites out there is mind-boggling, but VIP Voice is legit. They are a leader in customer insights for large brands and manufacturers and they have great legitimate surveys with great payouts!
2. Pinecone Research Pinecone Research is by far my all time favorite survey site, and not only do I love it, but readers do, too. I get so many great comments and feedback from readers because they are one of the top paying companies for surveys. It's free to join, but it's hard to get into. I recommend taking the screening survey here.
3. Inbox Dollars Inbox Dollars pays members to read emails, take surveys online, and play games. New enrollees also receive $5 just for joining.
BONUS: If you're an active person that doesn't mind doing a little bit extra to earn even more, I would suggest National Consumer Panel. For scanning what you buy and looking at your spending habits, they'll reward you for your time with valuable points, which are redeemable for electronics, household items, jewelry, toy, gift cards, and more. And, there is no landline required with this homescan signup – YAY! I recommend seeing if you qualify here.
Once you become a NCP panel member all you have to do is scan and send them your household purchase information every week with a handheld scanner that they provide. For each week of the month NCP receives your purchase information, you will earn one entry into the Monthly Sweepstakes where you can win $250 American Express Rewards Card. That’s up to FOUR entries every month! Every month, 20 panel members win!
I will also typically save my Ibotta earnings all year long and then cash out at the end of the year.
I'd love to know how you save big during and for the holidays! Just hit reply to this email and share your favorite ways to save! I'd love to pass them along!
