Is it really possible to get free money fast? You’d better believe it!
The fact of the matter is that there are dozens of businesses giving away thousands of dollars worth of free money and gift cards per year to promote their brand.
Some are legit, and others aren’t.
In this article I show you the top legitimate ways to get free money fast.
Keep in mind that there may be other, longer-term ways to make money, such as blogging (we make over $10,000 a month), but the items below are ways to get free money in the short-term.
1. Take online surveys for quick cash via Paypal.
You can sit at home in your pajamas and watch television while taking surveys, so in our book, that’s pretty much free money.
The trick is that there are only a few legit survey sites. We recommend Survey Junkie.
It’s 100% legit, and they do not send you spammy junk emails.
Their payouts are excellent, and they pay you in cash via PayPal.
Top Survey Site: Survey Junkie
Survey Junkie has an 8.9/10 rating on TrustPilot — the highest of any online survey company.
And they also have some really fun surveys.
For example, in the screenshot below you’ll see a pretty awesome music review survey that I recently did. I made $50 reviewing music! ?
Now, I must tell you that not all surveys are this fun, and not all pay this well, but every once in a while you get a great one like this!
Also, it’s satisfying knowing that companies will use my opinions and inputs to make decisions about not only music, but also food, restaurants, consumer products, movies, and a lot more.
2. Get paid to play mobile games.
This is another one of those passive income ideas where you get paid to do something you enjoy, so it’s not really work at all.
How it works is you download a free new app, then download new mobile games through the app.
As you level up in the mobile games, you earn more points that you can redeem for gift cards at Amazon, VISA, PlayStation, Xbox, Apple, Starbucks, and more.
3. Win up to $1,000,000 playing a free slots app.
Long Game is a free app that basically gamifies and rewards you for your savings.
Here’s how Long Game works:
(1) You deposit money into your Long Game account and earn interest on it. Note that this money belongs to you, just like it does in your bank account. Long Game does not collect any fees out of the money you put in, and you can withdraw it at any time.
(3) You use these coins to play slot games with prizes ranging from $100 to $1,000,000!
So while you do have to put money into the app to play, this money belongs to you, not the house!
How does Long Game make money to pay their employees as well as your winnings?
Easy. Long Game earns interest on the money you deposit, and it’s out of this interest that it pays out the winnings.
4. Use a free money-saving bot.
Sometimes the best way to make money is to save money.
Subscriptions, especially those that go unused, can add up over time.
Thankfully, there’s a free money-saving bot called Cushion that will go through all your subscriptions, let you know how much you are paying for each of them every month, and cancel them with a simple text message if you’d like.
And Cushion not only keeps track of your subscriptions, but it also negotiates your monthly bills such as cable and Internet so you keep more money in your pocket.
5. Get paid to have an app on your phone.
There’s an app that will pay you just for having it on your phone.
You heard me right. They will pay you $50 per year per device just for having your app on there!
Talk about getting free money!
6. Rent out your spare room.
Renting out lodging can be an incredible way to get money essentially for free.
I know some people making thousands of dollars a month, all by renting out an extra room to short-term guests.
Now, if you wanted to do this 10 years ago, you would’ve had to post an ad in the classifieds or on shady old Craigslist.
Gladly, those days are over. You can now list your spare room on Airbnb and screen out prospective guests. (Guests are rated by their hosts for things like cleanliness and communication.)
7. Get paid to walk with this app.
I just got paid $10 for walking, paid in cash via PayPal!
There’s a new app, Sweatcoin, that will pay you for every step you take.
It motivates me to go for more runs, take the stairs more often, and be an all-around more active person.
