7 Ways To Earn I Recommend Everyone Use in 2018!
Depending on how long you’ve read my blog, you might hold my opinion highly, at least that’s my goal anyway! Today I’d like to put together a list of the sites/apps that I’m going to use in 2018 to make money.
Most of you know that I make most of my money blogging, which I highly recommend to anyone, but today I’ll focus on the extra income/side hustles ways I make money.
All of these sites are legitimate, I’ll show payment proof of each below, and I’ll leave links to my full reviews so you can learn more!
The reason that I use all of these sites is that most of them are pretty passive ways to earn or only require a small time commitment compared to the return.
If you have any questions, make sure to leave comments below.
Let’s get started, in no particular order here’re 7 of sites I’ll be using in 2018 to make a side income!
7 Side Hustles I’ll Use To Make Money In 2018!
1. Swagbucks – Read Review – $5 Sign-Up Bonus – Paid To Search
Swagbucks is a rewards site that pays you to take surveys, complete offers, watch videos, shop, and much more. As you earn points, you can exchange them for gift cards and PayPal payments.
Swagbucks is by far my favorite rewards site, and I still use their website to get paid to search the internet.
They have their own search bar that you can use that occasionally earns you $.08-$.20.
This won’t be a huge income but when you combine it with the other ways to earn it’s a great site to use to make some extra cash on the side.
Once you earn 500 points, you can exchange them for $5 gift cards to popular stores like Amazon, Walmart, etc. They even have cash payments available via PayPal.
Here’s proof that Swagbucks pays:

2. Dosh – Read Review – $5 Sign-Up Bonus – Automatic Cash Back
Dosh is a new app that pays you Automatic cash back. How? Instead of scanning receipts, like most cashback apps, all you need to do is link a credit/debit card.
When you make a purchase at a participating store, online merchant, or book travel plans, you’ll earn a percentage cash back.
The reason I’ll be using Dosh is it’s AUTOMATIC. It takes a few minutes to join and link a card, from there just shop normally and you’ll earn cash back when you make purchases at participating retailers.
Once you earn $15, you can get paid via PayPal or Direct Deposit.
Here’s proof that the Dosh App pays:
3. PaidViewpoint – Read Review – $1 Sign-Up Bonus – Only Survey Site I Use
PaidViewpoint is the only site I still use to take surveys, here’s why. If you’ve ever taken a survey, you’ve probably been told that you do not qualify. With PaidViewpoint they only send you surveys that you’re pre-qualified for. This means you earn money for every answer you provide.
PaidViewpoint is really the only site that only offers surveys that does this, so it’s really the only pure survey site I highly recommend.
Once you earn $15, you can cash out via PayPal, Amazon, or Walmart gift card. As you know, I love to get paid cash, so here’s proof that PaidViewpoint pays via PayPal:

4. Drop – Read Review – $1 Sign-Up Bonus – Automatic Cash Back
Drop is another new app similar to Dosh that pays you automatic cash back. The process is the same, link a card and you’ll earn cashback when you make a purchase at participating retailers.
I prefer Dosh, but they have different stores available on each app, so it’s great to use both!
The reason I’ll be using Dosh is again, that it’s automatic. I don’t have to worry about scanning receipts, just link a card and go on with my life.
One negative to Drop is that they do not offer cash rewards. Only gift cards to popular stores like Amazon, Starbucks, etc. starting at $5.
Here’s proof of a $10 gift card I recently cash out to Amazon:

5. Qmee – Read Review – Paid To Search Browser Extension
Qmee is a browser extension that pays you to search. This is a very easy way to earn an extra income, but it’s not going to be much.
The great thing about Qmee is it shows results on a sidebar that doesn’t affect normal search results. With Qmee you can use Google or any preferred search engine and still earn.
Once you install the Qmee browser extension, you’ll occasionally see Qmee search results on a sidebar. If you click on them, you’ll earn $.03-$.10.
Again, this won’t be a huge income but it’s extremely easy to earn and doesn’t affect your normal searching experience.
Qmee pays via PayPal with no minimum cash out amount.
Here’s proof that Qmee pays:

6. 1Q – Read Review – Paid To Answer Short Polls
1Q is an app that pays you to answer multiple answer polls. Let me be the first to say that you won’t get many polls and each poll pays $.25 directly to your PayPal account, so this won’t be a big income, but you can earn money with just a few seconds of your time.
1Q is completely free to use and only takes a few seconds to sign up. Once you’re a member, you’ll occasionally receive notifications that a poll is available. Here’s an example poll:
It took me less than 10 seconds to answer this and I had $.25 in my PayPal account immediately. Here’s proof they pay:
Obviously, this won’t be a huge income, but I’ll be using 1Q in 2018 because it’s so dang easy to earn. Once you’re signed up the time commitment is so small it’s worth keeping it installed on my phone.

7. Ibotta – Read Review – Paid To Grocery Shop
Ibotta is a cashback app that I’ve been using for several years now. On this list, I’ve mentioned a few new sites that earn you automatic cash back. These sites are very new and I think it’s the way of the future, but that doesn’t mean you can’t earn cash back with Ibotta still.
My plan for 2018 is to use the automatic cash back apps but also scan my receipts when I make a qualifying purchases with Ibotta. That way I’m earning the most back possible.
If you’re not familiar, Ibotta pays you cashback for your in-store shopping. They have a ton of offers listed in their apps that they will pay you cashback to buy.
Once you buy an available product, keep your receipt and take a picture of it inside the app.
You’ll earn $.50-$3+ on most of the cash back offers and can get paid via Paypal or Venmo once you earn $20.
Here’s proof that Ibotta pays:
At this time, Ibotta offers a $10 sign-up bonus once you redeem your first offer. You can learn more or join at Ibotta.com!
