As people who travel in campervans, RVs and sailboats full-time, we’re always looking for a way to make a quick extra buck.

Side hustles aren’t going to replace an income, but they’re easy money to spend on beer, eating out or even campsites.

Here are seven of my favorite ways to make extra money, which I’ve personally tried. Most of these are things you can do from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection on your computer or even your phone.

1. Make money shopping online with Ebates.

 

If you shop online even sometimes, it’s a no-brainer to sign up with Ebates. This is a cash back rewards system which also finds and applies coupons to your online purchases. No, Ebates is not a scam. I consistently make money back every month, most recently $37 when I signed up for Quickbooks Self-Employed!

With Ebates, you can install an extension on your Chrome browser, which automatically detects and applies discounts and cashback. Click here to read my Ebates review.

If you sign up for Ebates, you’ll immediately get $10 cash back credit.

2. Take online paid surveys for extra cash

Paid online surveys are a great way to make extra money on the side. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme, but it will give you some chump change. Legitimate online survey sites are free to join, and either reward you with points for gift cards or cash. Make sure you read the fine print to make sure you’re getting what you want from a survey company.

3. Sell your services on Fiverr.

I recently bought a simple signature logo for $6 using Fiverr, which is where graphic artists, writers, techies and digital marketers sell their services for cheap. If you’re a super fast worker and can design a logo or write something up in a few minutes, it may be worth it to try to use Fiverr.  You can set your own rates and work on your own schedule, which is especially nice either if you’re a home a lot, or lead more of a nomad lifestyle.

4. Redeem cash back on grocery receipts.

  Use Ibotta to make easy money from home

This one is a little bit silly but I still find it fun. With Ibotta, you can choose rebates before you shop, then upload your receipt and get cash back. With their $10 sign-up bonus I’ve already gotten a $15 payment into my bank account. It only takes a few minutes and the dollar here and there really adds up! Plus, it’s fun discovering new products. There are even cash back rebates on wine! Can’t go wrong with that.

5. Install the Smart App on your phone.

So far, I’ve earned $10 by just installing the Smart App on my phone. This app anonymously tracks how you use your phone, including how many times you go to social media per day, how often you use the web, etc. This info is used by tech companies to make your device, apps and features better. This is basically a no brainer. I make money without having to do anything at all.

If you’re worried about privacy, this is what Smart Panel says about it: “The Smart App does not collect any passwords or usernames, and it can’t access your pictures, text messages, or other content in your apps. The application encrypts data before sending the encrypted log files from the device via a secured internet connection to the Smart Panel server. The Smart App also uses a VPN to ensure that your data is transmitted safely and securely.”

6. Test websites and get $10 for 5 minutes.

   Sign up for UserTesting to make easy money at home

User Testing is an easy thing to do if you don’t mine testing out a website and talking out loud as you do it. This is a way for companies and bloggers to get honest feedback on their web design, and developers use it to improve their mobile apps. All you have to do is install a recording software on your phone, and record your thoughts and follow instructions to review a website or app. The last time I did this it took me 5 minutes and then I had $10 deposited into my PayPal account. Easy money!

7. Petsit using Rover.

So, this isn’t something you do at home, but it is something simple to do at someone else’s home. In fact, I made $800 my first month petsitting using Rover, and it’s been a pretty good experience so far. You just sign up, figure out your rates, and wait for people in your neighborhood to contact you about house and pet sitting, or dog walking. It’s a great way for me to break up my time being on the sailboat.
