for some people, getting a job is harder than it looks. maybe you're not old enough or sometimes getting a call back is the hardest thing in the world.

and that's okay!

that's why i've compiled a list of legitimate ways you can earn some cash on the internet. now, they're not going to make you a millionaire but every $5 gift card can go a long way.

1. microsoft rewards
my personal favorite. just by searching on bing, you can manage to score a $10 gift card every month. you can redeem points to starbucks, target, and even the movie theatre just by taking a few minutes out of each day to search!

*available by using the "bing search" app in the app store or on google play
rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

2. drop
just by connecting your debit or credit card, you can easily score cash back at the places you already shop! it's that easy! and, if you sign up using my referral code, we both get a $5 gift card! no strings attached. gift card options include starbucks, american eagle, target, amc, and more!

3. crowdtap
if you ever have some downtime, take some time to answer simple survey questions! with enough consistency, you can score a few $5 gift cards in a month. the redeeming process is quick and easy! you can redeem for amazon, target, sephora, and more!

*not an app. can only be accessed online
rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

4. yelp cash back
i had no idea yelp offered a cash back program. just by connecting a debit or credit card, you can earn cash back just for shopping at certain restaurants or food places! it does take a month to receive your earnings but this has definitely managed to save me some cash.

*available with the "yelp" app in the app store or on google play. can also be accessed online
rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

5. quickthoughts
i don't use this app as much as i should, but with every survey question you answer, you get cash. even if you don't qualify, you still get 10 cents, which does pile up! if using on an iphone, you can only redeem for an itunes gift card, while on android devices, you can only redeem for an amazon gift card.

*available on the app store or in google play
rate: ⭐⭐⭐

6. sweatcoin
simply enough, you can get paid just for walking! although i haven't had much luck with the app, i do believe there is potential in sweatcoin. essentially, you can redeem for starbucks, netflix, nike, or even $1,000 cash (if you make it that far).

7. swagbucks
i'm not going to lie, at first, i was very skeptical about this app. while it does look a little sketchy, i've managed to redeem up to $75 worth of gift cards for doing surveys, playing games, and doing searches. it might take awhile to accumulate points but they do have alot of gift cards to choose from! from target and walmart to american eagle and paypal, the options are nearly endless.

8. ebates
i've heard so much about this program and surely, i thought it was too good to be true. although, i can asure that it's definitely worth the hype. just by shopping online (and some in-store purchases), you can buy what you would normally buy and get a percentage of the cash back! easy to say, it will easily add up and before you know it, your quarterly check will be bigger than you expected. with a very wide selection of popular stores, it's likely that you'll get cash back on your favorite stores and every three months, you'll get paid in a mailed check or paypal!

*available in the app store, google play, and the google chrome extension

i will try my best to update this article as i discover new ways to make money online, but in the mean time, these are my go-to's for earning a little bit more cash in my pocket.

hope you enjoyed!
