Join the thousands of others making money online with these legitimate ways to make an extra $500+ this month. Whether you’re looking for a stay at home work opportunity or a petsitting business, these legitimate opportunities will help you bring in extra cash.

Freelance Work

Use your skills to make extra cash by providing your services on websites like Fiverr and UpWork. Whether you have knowledge in website development or marketing, there are lots of freelance opportunities waiting for you!

Serve as eJuror

Have an interest in the law? Lawyers need to test their presentations of their cases and they do so using mock jurors. Ejury.com hires mock jurors to help lawyers practice and see what the mock jury response is for upcoming trials.

Take Online Surveys

If you like taking surveys, then why not get paid for it? Websites like Swag Bucks, Survey Junkie, and Google Rewards will pay you for taking their surveys. You can use the survey providers’ apps so you can take surveys wherever you are and whenever you’re free.

And the great part is that these websites are free and you’re able to start immediately.

Website Testing

Testers for websites can get paid up to $30 per hour through places like Testing Time, Analysia, and TryMYUI. And you probably already have what you need to get started: a laptop, a webcam, and high speed internet.

Browsing the Web

You already search online, right? So why not let your searches work for you? Market research companies are interested in tracking searching habits. Using the Bing or Inbox Dollars browser will reward you each time you search with them. It’s free to join and free to use their browser.

Virtual Assistant

The opportunities are endless for online virtual assistants (or also know as VA’s). And if you’re curious about what an online virtual assistant does, they can do things like booking travel accommodations, answering emails and phone calls, social media management, and much more.

Take Pictures, Make Cash

Do you love to take photographs? Well Foap is an app that lets you turn your photos into cash. Upload your photos and videos to their app where brands, agencies, and companies can purchase the rights to use your photos or videos! This is also a great opportunity to build your photography and cinematography portfolio.

Pet Lovers Cash In

You can cash in on your love of those four legged furry friends by signing up for Rover. Rover is an app that lets you discover new petsitting opportunities. You can also choose to board pets at your home when people go on vacation or a business trip.


Sometimes, the extra margin in cash per month is needed. So try out one or more of these ideas and see what works best for you!
