Other Ways to Make Money Online

There are many ways to make money from home on the internet. Here are a list of the best websites out there that you can sign up to and start earning money today.

Matched Betting with Oddsmonkey

So I have talked about Oddsmonkey extensively on this site already. Matched betting really is one of the best ways to earn a good chunk of money every month. You can read about what is matched betting here and my full review of Oddsmonkey here. Matched betting is the process of getting free bets from bookmakers and laying them at a betting exchange for a profit. It is an incredibly powerful way to make money online.


Forex Trading/Stock Market

So this is definitely not risk free but if you know what you are doing then Forex Trading can be a great source of income. Definitely not for everyone this one but in recent years the practice has been made a lot easier with websites like EasyMarkets allowing anyone to sign up and start investing and trading. Easy Markets will walk you though the entire process and offer great support to help their customers make money from their investments.

You can sign up to Easy Markets for free here.


Swagbucks is a rewards website that can earn you some easy money. Swagbucks is an online currency or more accuratley they are points you can exchange for things like Amazon vouchers. You can also redeem them for cash and get the money paid into your PayPal account.

There are many ways to earn Swagbucks, such as:

filling in surveys
watching videos
playing games
online shopping
searching the web
All of these things require little to no effort on your part but you get rewarded for doing them. If you are planning on buying something online you might as well check whether you can get to that online shop via swagbucks first as then you will earn cashback on your purchases. You can also choose to use their search engine instead of the usual suspects, every search you do will earn you a small amount of points.

If you are based in the US you might want to check out CashCrate which is very similar to Swagbucks. UK customers can also join cashcrate but there are fewer opportunities to make money for UK customers.

Swagbucks is free to join and you can start earning some money straight away.



I’m sure you will have heard of TopCashback at some point. They are one of the best online websites for getting money back from online purchases. The way it works is you go to their website and then click through to your favourite online retail stores like Argos, eBay, Currys, PC World, ao.com, aliexpress, Tesco, GAME etc. The list is endless.

By going to their websites via TopCashback you get a percentage of your purchase back as cash. So for example if you bought something at Argos for £100 you would get £6 back from TopCashback as Argos have a 6% cashback deal. The amount varies from retailer to retailer but if you are planning on doing any shopping online this is a great way to earn a discount on your purchases. It’s completely free to join, you just need to remember to go to TopCashback.co.uk before you start your online shopping.

You can also earn money by referring your friends to TopCashback!

There are absolutely loads of online survey sites out there that will pay you for your opinion. Filling in surveys is something anyone can start doing right now to earn a little bit of money on the side. Here are some of the best survey sites:

Sell on eBay

If you have a talent for making and creating things then you can sell it on eBay. You can literally buy and sell anything on eBay and it’s a great place to find and sell handmade products. You can also sell any unwanted items you have lying around the house to earn a little bit of extra cash.

If you don’t already have an eBay account you can sign up here.

That’s all I have for now but I will update this post regularly when I have checked out some of the other great sites that are out there.
