Make Extra Money for Holiday Gifts and Bills

Do you all realize that the holiday season is here?  Unbelievable right?  I can remember like it was yesterday the girls and I decorating our little Christmas tree while eating Christmas cookies and watching holiday movies on tv.

The holiday season is a expensive time for me because not only do I have to buy gifts, I also have to pay for our annual end of the year family vacation and other events happening soon.

Ways to not put a dent on my pocketbook is by joining different survey and freebie panels and save up the money I earn throughout the year and then cash out right before holiday shopping begins.

 What are ways you make extra money for the holidays?


  1. Are these survey companies the ones where you answer a 10 mn questionnaire just to get denied? I have been a member of epoll.com and I LOVE IT! I have received so much extra money throughout the years. I am being bombarded with emails from Mindfield right now but I;ve gotten away from them because like I asked above.. they will deny you after you've answered 10 mns worth of questions! I also use Swagbucks, used to be more heavily involved.

    1. With survey panels it all depends on your demographic of what the company is looking for. To better your chances at completing a full survey is by making sure your profile is complete and updated so you'll start getting surveys that fits for you.

      Mindfield hasn't been that great lately and has seriously gone down hill. I really use to love them because I use to get into high paying focus groups and paid product testing.

    2. I am getting like 4 emails a day from Mindfield.. maybe I should try them again... it's like they miss me ;)

    3. I get a lot of emails from them too but after awhile I started to ignore them. I was getting a whole bunch about Sam's Club from Mindfield and at the time I didn't have a membership with them and would never qualify.

  2. I always love finding ways to make extra money. Thank you so much for this list!

  3. Receiving extra money around the holidays is a big treat. I will look into some of these.

  4. I didn't realize there were so many ways to earn extra cash online. Thanks!

  5. I will definitely be checking some of these out! Thanks!

  6. Thanks for the great list...definitely going to be checking a few of these out!

  7. I definitely have to get back on my Swagbucks game. My first year on I scored some awesome gift cards to help with Christmas shopping. Will be checking out Listia.

    1. Yep girl you'll need to get back on Swagbucks!

  8. Right on time Louida! Thanks for sharing this, definitely passing it on to others!

  9. I've tried a few of the survey sites & it seems like they end up saying "Sorry you don't qualify for this survey". So that's kind of discouraging. I'm a stay at home Mom & would love to earn extra $. I will check otu a few of the 1s you've mentioned though.

    1. Hey Kimberly! That happens at times and it can be discourging, but don't give up!

  10. I honestly don't think I have heard of any of those sites, but they sound incredible. I really need to get off my butt and check them out!!

    1. Yes, check them out Alyssa! They are all a great way to make extra money during the holiday season, and throughout the year!
