Six Ways To Make Fast Cash

Whether you need money for books, some “walking around cash” or the fare for a ticket home, here are six creative ways you can earn some extra bucks.  We have compiled various ways which you can make quick cash for doing simple tasks online. There are lots of ways to make fast cash and quickly, if you just take a chance with a company. What do you have to lose?

Ways to Make Fast Cash

HUMAN GUINEA PIG: Ever thought of participating in a research study? Compensation for clinical research study volunteers runs the gamut from $15 for answering a few questions on lifestyle habits to a couple of thousand dollars for participating in a longer term study with an in-patient stay.

If your university has a med school, check out opportunities on campus. National clinical listing services include www.clinicaltrials.gov and www.centerwatch.com.

MOVING BILLBOARD: All Savi Maharaj from the University of Florida has to do to get a paycheck is drive her black Volkswagen Beetle around campus. If she leaves her car parked in front of the dorms, it’s even better for business.

Maharaj is one of the over 700,000 contacts for a marketing and promotions company called Free Car Media. The company matches advertising clients with drivers across the country to promote the company’s products. Drivers are given free samples of the product they are promoting to pass out along the road to interested consumers.

SELL STUFF: Sell what you don’t need, can’t use, or no longer like. Sell back your used textbooks at semester’s end. Do it on campus for the fastest return, but if you’re a recent grad you can sell back textbooks on-line. Check out www.barnesandnoble.com.

Other easily convertible-to-cash items include CD’s and clothing. Expect to get $1-$5 per CD, depending on the condition. Gary Alpert, 23, after-school director at the Jewish Day School in Newton, Mass. takes the music resale concept a step further. “I’ve bought a box of used records at a garage sale for $3 and then sold them for $1-2 each at the used music store.”

QUICK CASH-IN’S: For students that live in a state that has bottle deposit laws, returning empty soda cans and beer bottles is a popular way to make quick cash. Pick up empties at the cafeteria or littered at school events.

Kate Hutchinson, 21, and her friend Nate Curtis, 22, both recent Trinity College (Hartford, Conn.) graduates, recycle cans together and use the money for “the extras, mostly stuff for our cat; a new collar, a litter box, going out money.”

Data Entry at Home:

If you can type quickly and have a home computer, many companies are looking for you to help. These jobs are usually easy to qualify for after a short online test.

ODD JOBS: Hutchinson does typing for extra money. “I work an average of 2 hours a week at $10/hour but I get more business closer to Christmas because my customers are busier themselves,” she says. Alpert has a weekly babysitting gig.

TEMPORARY JOBS: Sometimes the only way to get real money is to get a real job. For example, playing Santa in the winter and manning a firework stand in the summer or anyother temporary holiday jobs are perfect if you want to make money but don’t want to make a huge job commitment. Some schools will post jobs on-line; others will post them outside the financial aid office.

*The ten states with bottle laws are: California, New York, Michigan, Massachusetts, Iowa, Maine, Delaware, Connecticut, Oregon and Vermont.

Complete Surveys Online:

Another great way to make fast cash is to complete surveys online. While you won’t qualify for every job because you don’t fit the profile, you will qualify for enough to make some extra bucks.

    You know, before you post a comment it says “Be nice. Keep it clean. Stay on topic. No spam.” Almost every comment posted above has been disregarding those guidlines. I would really appreciate people refrain from vulgar language and are actually nice. You’re offending the person or persons who wrote this article by criticizing everybodys sepelling and grammar. Just get over it and get on with your lives. I personally think most of the ideas, though obvious, were good. Criticize me as you will, but I have stated my opinion and there is nothing you can do about it. Thank you.

    I need extra money 4 the holiday season. I have applied 4 jobs, seasonal, 4 the holiday seaon. But almost having a heart attack kept me from several positons. By the time I was able to respond 2 their calls, they claimed they were full up. & I am a writer. So finding side jobs these days is difficult enough. A lady wanted me 2 send her a resme, just to sell bath candy 4 the holiday season! A total of less than 3 weeks. That”s ludicrus! & I have read over many of these seasonal job listings, on this site.& have presude many of them before. & have found. That u can do none of them off line unless u have a resume. Or they are on line & are either trying to take your money, sc &am u or not ligit. It isn”t any wonder people have such difficulty today! & 4 me ÷ typically don”t. But I am now!

    Affiliate marketing and blogging are also great ways to make cash. You can use your blog to promote good quality affiliate products and write helpful post to help others while helping yourself to a passive income. Adsense can be put on the blog to monetize it as well.

  20. SWINGKID says:

    Its hard to make money online. The article makes it sound easy. I have done lots of survey’s etc. I tried blogging but not suited to that either. I doubt getting a typing job is as easy as they made it sound.
