5 Brilliant Ways To Make Money From Home

If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that we all want to make more money while spending less time working. Spending 30, 40, or sometimes 50 hours at work per week is crucial for many of us if we want to support ourselves, but spending all this time at work means we don't have nearly enough time leftover to spend time with our family and friends.

This week, the team at First Bank of the Lake is here to help you break out of this endless cycle. We've compiled a quick list of some simple, but brilliant ways to help you make money at home and/or save money on your weekly purchases.

5 Brilliant Ways To Make Money At Home

1. Take Online Surveys
Get paid for having an opinion! Certain online survey sites will actually pay people to take their surveys. Generally, these survey sites will either cut you a check or pay you in the form of prepaid Visa or retailer gift cards. Here are a couple sites to get you started:

2. Download Certain Apps
Some companies will pay you to download and keep their apps on your mobile devices. These apps are used to gather data about smart phone usage, such as what times of day people browse and how much time they spend on certain apps or mobile sites. Here are two to start with:
3. Clean Up Search Engine Results
Think about it: when you search in Google, Yahoo, or Bing, how do these search engines know that they're pulling in relevant results? They need real people to test their searches and judge their results for usefulness, relevancy, and quality. You can make money by doing this from your home computer! The Penny Hoarder has a great article with more information on this type of work.

4. Get Rebates From Your Grocery Store Receipts
If you could send in pictures of your grocery store receipts for cash rebates, would you? Of course you would! Certain companies, such as Checkout51 and SavingStar, let you pick and choose from incredible deals that rotate on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Other companies, such as ibotta, ask you to scan product barcodes and a take pictures of your receipts from your smartphone in order to receive cash rebates.

5. Become A Transcriptionist
If you don't mind repetitive work, becoming a transcriptionist could be a great career move. There are a few different companies that will hire you to listen to audio tracks and transcribe them. Listening to the same audio track repeatedly can be a little monotonous, but the job does offer several perks. For example, you can typically work as much or as little as you want, set your own hours, and potentially make up to $25/hour. Here are a few sites we recommend starting with:
