  1. Scan your receipts
    Did you know that there are companies out there that will pay you for scanning your receipts? If you go grocery shopping often, you can make some extra cash very quickly from this. You can even take it a step further and scan receipts from your parents or significant other as well. Since I deliver groceries, I scan the receipts from my grocery orders. Here are a few apps that will pay you to scan your receipts:
    Receipt Hog (wait list)
    Receipt Pal (wait list)
    Checkout 51
  2. Share your usage data with a research panel
    This one literally requires no thinking whatsoever. All you have to do is sign up for Google Screenwise/Cross Media Panel, install the browser app, and start making money. You can earn from $1-$3 a week, depending on how many devices you have set up with your account. You can also earn a $6 sign up bonus if you set up 3 devices. It’s not a lot of money and you can only redeem gift cards, but who else is going to pay you for doing nothing?
  3. Open a bank account
    There are banks out there that will actually pay you to open a bank account! Of course, there are certain requirements that you have to meet, but they’re not difficult. Here are some banks that will pay you to open an account with them:
    Chase ($200)Offers change every month, so be sure to check often!That’s it! Easy, right?These may not make you a ton of money, but you can get some extra cash that you might need. Just $20 could make a difference!
