I receive emails daily from so many of you that want to know how you can "REALLY" make some extra money online. So, I'm reposting this compilation of my top online extra money makers for all our new friends on Facebook and new readers here on the blog.

In January of 2010, I began putting more effort into my extra money making ventures to see just how close I could get to replacing the income that I was making with my "real world" job. Many of you know that I took medical leave to have some oral surgery that ended up taking nearly 6 monthes to be completed and for me to heal and get back to normal. (Yes, it's took way longer than I planned, but that is a whole other post!)

I took advantage of my newly found "downtime" and began utilizing all the extra money makers that I'd piddled with from time to time. Ebay, Amazon, a flea market booth, paid emails, name it, I've tried it all! So, I focused on the ones that have actually worked for me and that I'd actually received a check from, and the results came in !

After a very tedious detailing of payouts from each of these avenues, I discovered that I actually exceeded my average paycheck when working a full time job! WOOHOO!
It's harder to see on a daily basis, because it may come in $5 here and $10 there, so I made a point to keep a log of each and every payment I received for one entire month.

Those of you that have followed my Monday's Money Maker Tip posts, know that I've explained them in detail along with my tips to actually make them work for you and skip on all the spam and time stealing things that get you sidetracked and don't pay! You can search the blog at any time for my Monday's Money Maker Tips to see all my previous posts.

So, here is yet another compilation of all of the Frugal Fabulous Finds Tried and Tested Money Makers that are available to anyone! These are the best of the best, the ones that I have tried and actually been paid out from. I hope you'll find something that works for you as well, and remember, none of them will allow you to quit your day job tomorrow. But, I have found that my own combination of those that work best for me and a little extra time and effort on my part can and have produced a dependable amount of extra money. Combine that with a very detailed and strict budget, major couponing and saving practices and you're well on your way !

I've listed my Top Extra Money Makers Below, in no particular order:

  • Toluna Surveys & Polls - Paid Surveys + Free Products to Test
  • Inbox Dollars - Paid Surveys, Paid Emails, Paid Games, Coupons,etc.
  • Shadow Shoppers - Mystery Shop Opps
  • Survey Savvy - Paid Surveys
  • Valued Opinions - Paid Surveys
  • MyView - Paid Surveys
  • Unique Rewards - Paid Surveys, Emails & Cash Back Shopping
  • Vindale Research - Paid Surveys
  • Sponsored Tweets - Paid Tweets

    And last but not definately NOT least, I have to include SWAGBUCKS because I've been redeeming all my SwagBucks for Cash Money into my Paypal Account or for Amazon Gift Cards! This turned that rewards program into a great Money Maker for me! Of course, you can still always redeem your Swagbucks for other prizes, but I decided to turn it all into Cash and add it to my list of money makers! I average around $200 per month from SwagBucks!

    Here's to making money from home while you are still in your PJ's !!! That's my favorite perk of all :)
