Many of us are strapped for cash but there are tons of legit ways to boot your income, whether that is working from home or going online, selling stuff, and a bit extra is always welcomed.
Firstly, you should always check if you have any accounts that just let your money languish in luxury without working for you, sorting out your finances and moving to the best deal on every product can earn you a 25% pay rise without having to cut out anything, so starting here is most important.
Remember too that keeping money in a current account that earns you a measly 0.1% or a savings in a high street bank account where former best buy rates have dropped dramatically is not good enough. You should always check out what the best rates are and in doing so could earn yourself over £50 a year more than keeping your cash in a poor account.
If you own a credit card then consider cashback credit cards which pay you back a proportion of what you spend every time you make a purchase using them. In order to benefit from this type of cred card you need to set up a direct debit to pay the card off in full each month and in this way, you could earn £100’s a year if you use the card for your normal spending. Look about for the cards that pay your 5% cashback for the first three months.
Another tip about making your own money work for you is pay off your debts with your savings as you will find that the amount you need to pay in interest on your debt far outweighs what you earn on your savings. Paying off your debt using your savings will definitely earn you more money.
All of us have clutter, and if you have not used it for a while you need to think about selling it either for free on local Facebook groups, or perhaps on ebay. You can also sell your old CD’s DVD’s and even computer games, phones, laptops and games consoles for cash. The sites that will buy these items are easy to use and give and instant quote.
If you are not into doing any of the above and would prefer a little excitement with the chance of earning some extra cash then think about finding yourself an online casino to play at. There are tons of great sites nowadays that have a full range of popular casino games, slots, bingo and scratchcard games that play very much like the ones that you buy at your local store.
The beauty about playing online is that the games can be played for just a few minutes if you are commuting or in your lunch break, or you can settle down for a full hour’s entertainment, wherever and whenever you choose. Games like bingo are also very social with a chat feature that runs alongside the games meaning you can keep up with friends and family or even make new friends whilst enjoying yourself.
But one thing is for sure, money is there to be made if you give it a little thought and time.
