Legitimate Ways For Stay At Home Parents To Earn Money Online

After my first child was born a few years ago, I found myself in the position of being a stay at home parent. Without the second income coming in our household money was tight and I scoured the internet for ways that I could make money online and still be at home with the kids. Since I know how difficult it is trying to weed out the legitimate opportunities from the scams  I wanted to compile a list of the ways that I’ve earned money online over the years.

Surveys, Get Paid to Surf, Read Emails

There are legitimate companies that will pay you to do various tasks online such as complete surveys, read email, complete multiple offers or even listen to music online. These programs are free to join.

Inbox Dollars – New users receive $5 just for joining.

Cash Crate – New users receive $1 bonus for joining.

Slicethepie – Get paid to listen to music.

Shopping

Some sites and apps will give you cash back for shopping online and in brick and mortar stores. These programs are free to join.

Ebates – Earn cash back from over 1,800 stores.

ibotta –  An application for Apple or Android users allowing you cash back when you shop online, submit a receipt or link a store loyalty card.

Receipt Hog – has some similarities with iBotta. It rewards its users for taking photos of their grocery store receipts and submitting them to the application.

Shopkick sends you location-based offers with the help of the GPS on your smartphone. It shows you in-store deals when you walk into certain shops. It also rewards you with points for taking the deals. The points can be redeemed for gift cards and discounts

 

Doing Miscellaneous Tasks

Qmee – Download the app on your computer and get paid for searching online as usual with Google, Amazon, EBay, Yahoo or Bing. You don’t need to do anything different.

Amazon Turk – Do various tasks online through Amazon Turk

Usability Testing

What is Usability Testing?

Website or App Owners will pay to monitor a genuine user use their website or app so they can find out exactly where their website or app may be confusing to the user.

Usability testing companies  have a panel of testers to do this. When you become a tester for one of these companies, when one of their clients request your demographic profile, you will have an opportunity to earn money by using their website or app and answering some questions about your experience.

When you do a usability test for a site  you will usually use a screen recorder  provided by the company that you signed up with to record a video of what’s happening on your screen

Depending on the company, you can expect to make $10 -$20 per test.

Here are a few sites that you can sign up as a Usability Tester:
