side hustles for 2019

Looking to make a bit of cash as you begin 2019? Below are 5 different ideas to get you started.

1. Sell Unwanted Gift Cards

Did you get some gift cards over the holidays that you know you will never use? Consider cashing them in for…CASH!

It is important to use only reputable sites and below is a list of companies that I have found to be the best. To get a quote on your gift card, just enter the brand and balance. In most cases, you can enter the gift card number to sell it and receive payment electronically, so there is no need to mail it. Rates will vary depending on the service and the brand.





2. Answer Questions

Do you enjoy searching for answers online? Then this might just be the side hustle for you! There are several sites that hire freelancers to answer questions on various topics. Having experience in various areas and being able to write well, is important. So is being able to research and condense what you find into readable text.

Experts 123 – Is a revenue sharing platform, so the more popular your answer they more you’ll get paid. Payments are made via PayPal. 

Just Answer – Pays 20% to 50% of what the person is willing to pay for the answer (if your answer is accepted). Payments are made via PayPal. 

3. Write Book Reviews

Many sites will send you free books or pay you to write book reviews (or both). If you’re an avid reader, it’s a great way to make and/or save money!

Some sites will publish your review in their magazine or blog. Some will ask you to publish your review on your own blog or on Amazon. Most ask for your honest review, but a few will only pay for positive reviews.

Check out this site to see a list of companies looking for reviewers.


4. Sell Junk

If you have a knack for finding decent used furniture or other household items tossed out on trash night, grab them and sell them on LetGo.

The downside to this side hustle is that you’ll need space to store what you find, and time to find and clean up the items, before you can place them on LetGo.

But if this is something you are doing anyway, you LetGo is an easy way to sell what you find!


5. Like Shoveling Snow?

A note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. Most of the time, I have purchased the product that I have reviewed. Sometimes vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However, all of my reviews are done as honestly as possible. No promises are made to the vendor regarding my review. If you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product, the link will be an affiliate link, which means that I will be paid a percentage of the sales price, if you decide to purchase that product.
