You save and earn money just for using their link to shop and use coupons. Some programs have additional ways to earn money by using their search engine or <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/resources/paid-surveys">taking surveys</a>. There are literally dozens of programs out there that can help you save and earn even more.</p> <p>Each one of the programs listed here is free and easy to join, has an active social media presence, and most importantly, pays as promised. So bookmark this article, take your time to review each opportunity, and take advantage of all that work for you.</p> <h2>Tips on Using Cash Back Sites</h2> <p>Cash back sites save you money by sharing the wealth. They earn a commission each time you click through to an online store from their site and make a purchase. In return for doing so, you receive a piece of that commission. The percentage can range from as little as 1% to as high as 25%, 30%, sometimes as much as 40%. The concept and process is simple, but there are a few things to keep in mind for maximum cash back savings.</p> <h3>Coupons</h3> <p>Most sites only allow you to use coupons and promo codes listed on their site. Using others may invalidate your cash back.</p> <h3>Gift Cards</h3> <p>Most programs do not allow you to receive cash back when using a gift card.</p> <h3>Don't Jump Around</h3> <p>Make sure you start your shopping through your favorite cash back site. There are cookies that track how you got to the store site and if your first visit is from somewhere other than your cash back site you may not get credit.</p> <h3>Cash Out Threshold</h3> <p>Be aware of the cash out threshold. Some programs let you cash out at as little as $1 or $5 while other program cash out points are as high as $25. A high threshold may still be worth it if the cash back rate is high and you're making a large purchase, so don't automatically disregard them.</p> <h3>Have a Few Favorites</h3> <p>Check them all out, but don't spread yourself too thin or you'll never accrue enough to cash out. Have two or three favorites and rotate among them depending on which one offers the best rate. With that said, a number of sites offer sign-up bonuses that are enticing enough to use them at least once.</p> <h3>Get the Most Savings</h3> <p>Sometimes you can save more by not using a cash back site. Have a special promotion, coupon, or gift card that will save you more? Use that instead!</p> <h2>1. Ebates</h2> <p><a href="http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=vIhagUaAxdMIsu435wELZg%3D%3D&amp;eeid=26471">Ebates</a> is probably the most well-known of any of the cash back sites. They even have television commercials, which I haven't seen for any of their competition. Their emphasis is on customer service as one of the best features as well as offering some of highest cash back rates around. Their rates are almost always competitive and sometimes much better, but it's always worth comparing with one or two other cash back or rewards site to be sure. A low cash out threshold and $10 gift card sign-up bonus make it worth joining and trying.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN, CHN, KOR, RUS.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 1800.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold</strong>: $5 which is sent quarterly or rolls over until threshold is met.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.

Swagbucks</h2> <p><a href="http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-2822544-10870210-1414506487000?sid=epic_cb">Swagbucks</a> is another well-known program with members earning close to a combined 100 million dollars in gift cards and cash. In addition to an extensive cash back shopping section, members can earn points called &quot;Swag Bucks&quot; by watching videos, taking surveys, playing games, and completing offers.

InboxDollars</h2> <p>The&nbsp;<a href="http://trk.cotterweb.net/?a=13562&amp;c=16696&amp;s1=1079289">InboxDollars rewards program</a> has been around for 15 years and has close to 1.5 million Facebook likes. Right now their cash back shopping program only has eight stores including Walmart, Kohl's, and Kmart. On the plus side, the cash back rates are competitive, and it's easy to earn extra money just for for clicking on emails they send, taking surveys, playing games, watching videos, and completing offers. They also have printable coupons and an internet search program that pays 15 cents per day just like the&nbsp;<a href="http://bing-rewards.evyy.net/c/27771/89275/2168?subId1=1079289">Bing Rewards Program</a>, which doubles to 30 cents a day after you cash out your earnings for the first time and automatically become a part of their Gold Member program. At $30, their cash out threshold is on the high side, but they offer a $5 sign-up bonus. Even if you don't do anything more than use their search and earn function, you can reach the cash out amount.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> US, UK.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> Eight.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $30 which will be paid within two weeks of being requested.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check, which incurs a $3 processing fee, pre-paid Visa card (currently for US only) which incurs a $3 processing fee, pre-paid Visa e-card which has no fees, InboxDollars e-card which is connected to Tango, a company that offers a least 50 different gift cards.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $5.</p> <p><a href="http://trk.cotterweb.net/?a=13562&amp;c=16696&amp;s1=1079289"><strong>Sign up with InboxDollars and get $5!</strong></a></p> <h2>4. Ibotta</h2> <p><a href="https://ibotta.com/r/jcsgjbv">Ibotta</a> is probably the most robust and diverse of the cash back apps. They have the most cash back product ability of all of the apps included here and members have saved over 27 million dollars. In addition to getting cash back for grocery shopping, Ibotta offers cash back on apparel, electronics, wine and spirits, restaurants, home and office, travel, and entertainment. Most of the cash back opportunities are for in-store purchases, but there are some that can be redeemed online.</p> <p>In addition, Ibotta offers small rebates for staples such as bread, milk, and fresh fruit and veggies. Most items have to be purchased at approved stores, but their list is vast and the names are easily recognizable. Ibotta also offers incentives like bonus cash for redeeming a certain amount of rebates per month. Some offers can be redeemed multiple times. Ibotta also created team spirit cash back earning opportunities by encouraging members to join through Facebook, or create a team with referrals. The more everyone in the group earns, the more cash back bonuses each member gets. If you like mobile cash back apps, Ibotta is definitely one to have in your arsenal.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> More than 100.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal, Venmo, or gift card (Amazon, Starbucks, Best Buy).</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $1 after completing your first cash back rebate within 14 days.</p> <p><a href="https://ibotta.com/r/jcsgjbv"><strong>Sign up and start saving with Ibotta today!</strong></a></p> <h2>5. TopCashBack</h2> <p><a href="http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-2822544-12105289-1426149300000">TopCashBack</a> passes along 100% of the commission it makes to its members. Billed as the &quot;most generous cashback site,&quot; they make money by driving traffic to the store websites and through advertisements. When looking at the &quot;latest offers&quot; section on their homepage, the cash back rates were generally higher, sometimes more than two times higher than other sites. They have something called the &quot;Highest Cash Back Guarantee,&quot; and there is no minimum needed to cash out.

SavingStar</h2> <p><a href="http://savingstar.ojrq.net/c/27771/18896/758">SavingStar</a> is a hybrid site that offers both traditional cash back shopping like Ebates, and grocery shopping mobile app cash back like Ibotta. The traditional cash back shopping works exactly like the other programs with users clicking through to a retailer to make a purchase and receive a percentage of SavingStar's commission. The rebate rates are competitive and worth comparing to other sites. In some cases the rate may be better.</p> <p>The mobile app for grocery shopping works a little differently than the other ones listed here. Once joining, you will be asked to link your store loyalty cards to SavingStar. They will provide a list of stores which includes many local supermarkets as well as national chains, such as CVS and Rite Aid. From there you choose from among the offers available and they are loaded onto your cards. Before purchasing the item, scan your store card, as that information will be sent to SavingStar and that's how you will qualify for your cash back. They also offers &quot;receipt scan&quot; stores for specific retailers like Target and Walmart that don't have loyalty cards. Check their offers regularly because they have a &quot;Healthy Offer&quot; every week on items like fresh produce and occasional freebies where you are reimbursed the full purchase price.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA.</p> <p><strong>Number of Traditional Cash back stores</strong>: More than 500.</p> <p><strong>Number of Mobile Cash Back Offers:</strong> Varies but between 32 and 50.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $5.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Bank transfer, PayPal, or donate to charity.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No.</p> <p><a href="http://savingstar.ojrq.net/c/27771/18896/758"><strong>Sign up with SavingStar and start saving today!</strong></a></p> <h2>7. Dollar Dig</h2> <p><a href="http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=569561&amp;U=255320&amp;M=51865&amp;urllink=">Dollar Dig</a> is a newer cash back site, having launched sometime in 2013. They have thousands of stores to shop through for cash back, coupons, and featured deals. Their cash out threshold is on the high side with members needing to reach $25 before being allowed to claim it. Their cash back rates are competitive, with some good deals thrown in now and again.</p> <p><strong>Where Available</strong>: USA, CAN, and numerous other countries.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 3200.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold</strong>: $25.01 which can be requested immediately and is paid monthly, usually on the first of the month.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check (U.S. and Canada only) and PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No.</p> <p><a href="http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=569561&amp;U=255320&amp;M=51865&amp;urllink="><strong>Sign up and save with Dollar Dig today!</strong></a></p> <h2>8. FatWallet</h2> <p><a href="http://www.fatwallet.com/?referral=kaaff">FatWallet</a> is similar to Ebates in look and in feel. In addition to receiving cash back from purchases, FatWallet offers coupons, promo codes, free shipping offers, and special bundles. Their cash out threshold is reasonable at $10, and it's awesome that you can request payment immediately instead of waiting on their schedule.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 1600.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10 which can be requested immediately.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No.</p> <p><a href="http://www.fatwallet.com/?referral=kaaff"><strong>Sign up and start saving with FatWallet today!</strong></a></p> <h2>9. Coupon Cactus</h2> <p><a href="http://www.couponcactus.com/?ccid=170575">Coupon Cactus</a> has a mascot named Cody, and as the name suggests, the site provides coupon codes (U.S. and international) as well as cash back offers. You can explore their offers by category, popularity, free shipping, clearance, and more. They have thousands of online merchants to choose from and an easy sign-up bonus.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA-based, but it looks like people from any country can join as long as businesses delivers there and users are able to cash a U.S. check or receive PayPal payments.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> Almost 4000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10 which is paid quarterly or rolls over until members reach $10.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods</strong>: Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available</strong>: No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $3 bonus for signing up and liking their Facebook page.</p> <p><a href="http://www.couponcactus.com/?ccid=170575"><strong>Sign up for Coupon Cactus and get a $3 bonus!</strong></a></p> <h2>10. BeFrugal</h2> <p><a href="http://www.befrugal.com/cashback/?ref=OCFOJMC">BeFrugal</a> started out as a coupon only site back in 2009 and expanded into cash back territory in 2011. In addition to offering cash back, coupons, freebies, and sweepstakes, they are one of the few sites to offer a &quot;Coupon Guarantee&quot; and &quot;Guaranteed Savings.&quot; They guarantee that a coupon on their site will work or you'll receive a $5 bonus. In addition, they guarantee to have the best cash back rate or they'll match the rate at 125%. That's cool, but their cash out threshold is on the high side at $25. Still, if you're going to make a large online purchase it could be worth a go as they offer $5 sign-up bonus.</p> <p><strong>Where Available</strong>: USA, UK. In addition, people from more than 100 counties can join and earn as long as they have a PayPal account.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 4000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $25, which is sent on the 15th of the month your funds are available.

MyPoints</h2> <p><a href="http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-2822544-11324935-1395932855000?sid=epic_CB">MyPoints</a> has been in business for almost 20 years. Members earn points, which can be exchanged for gift cards or cash. These points are earned by making purchases through the MyPoints cash back portal, or participating in one of their other activities &mdash; surveys, games, searching the internet, reading email, watching videos, and printing and using coupons.</p> <p>This rewards/cash back program has a couple of aspects that could potentially make it less desirable than other sites. First, the cash back rates. I compared MyPoints with other sites and looked at 10 merchants. In eight instances, the cash back rate was about half a percent lower, and in two cases it was about half a percent higher. Second, members who use the site earn points. Many sites do this and it's not a bad thing as long as points are equivalent to currency (i.e. one point = one penny, so 100 points = $1). In the case of MyPoints, the value of the points varies, and all are worth less than a penny each. For instance, a $10 Applebee's gift card is 1650 points, the equivalent of $16.50 if each point were worth a penny. Still, with a $10 gift card bonus for signing up and making a cash back purchase of $20, it's worth a shot just for that.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 1900.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10 gift card or $25 PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Gift card or PayPal when enough points have been accrued.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $10 gift card when a purchase of $20 or more is made through their cash back shopping portal.</p> <p><a href="http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-2822544-11324935-1395932855000?sid=epic_CB"><strong>Try MyPoints and get a $10 gift card!</strong></a></p> <h2>12. Upromise</h2> <p><a href="http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-2822544-12085508-1437073828000?sid=epic_CB&amp;cm_mmc=CJ-_-2276508-_-2822544-_-Everyday%20Spending%20-%20Learn%20More">Upromise</a> is a cash back site whose mission is to help people save for college (for themselves or someone else). It's not, however, like a <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-creative-uses-for-a-529-plan">529 Plan</a>, which is designed to help families save money for college through interest bearing accounts. Nor does it have tax benefits like a 529 Plan. In fact, the money saved with Upromise does not have to be used for educational purposes at all and can be withdrawn at any time as long as the minimum cash out balance is met.</p> <p>Like its competitors, Upromise offers cash back for online shopping. In addition, users can earn cash back when they register their credit card and dine out, book travel through their website, or acquire a Upromise branded credit card. Users also have access to grocery and drugstore e-coupons when they register their loyalty cards with the site.</p> <p><strong>Where Available</strong>: USA.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 850, plus more than 8,000 restaurants.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10 which can be requested immediately online. For security purposes, amounts of $1000 or greater must be accompanied by a notarized form which can be printed from their website.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No.</p> <p><a href="http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-2822544-12085508-1437073828000?sid=epic_CB&amp;cm_mmc=CJ-_-2276508-_-2822544-_-Everyday%20Spending%20-%20Learn%20More"><strong>Click here to start saving for college with Upromise!</strong></a></p> <h2>13. Panda Cash Back</h2> <p>This Better Business Bureau A+ rated cash back program is another one that allows people from dozens of countries to join and save money.<a href="http://www.pandacashback.com/?ref=4710"> Panda Cash Back</a> offers double cash back deals and local daily deals.

Hoopla Doopla</h2> <p>This cash back site with the funny sounding name (which apparently has the same name as a television show in Australia) has been in business since 2009. <a href="http://www.hoopladoopla.com/index.php?ref=3h4j2f43f7t322759">Hoopla Doopla</a> gives back more than half of the commission they receive to their members. In addition to cash back they offer exclusive coupons and daily deals, as well as fundraise for cancer research. Their low cash out threshold and competitive cash back rates makes it an attractive option to try.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA. Also, while the site says that anyone with internet access, an email address, and a PayPal account is eligible to join, the cash back retailers appear to be U.S.-centric.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 2000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold</strong>: $5 for PayPal or $10 for check, paid quarterly or rolled over until threshold is met.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No.</p> <p><a href="http://www.hoopladoopla.com/index.php?ref=3h4j2f43f7t322759"><strong>Click here to start saving with Hoopla Doopla!</strong></a></p> <h2>15. Mr. Rebates</h2> <p><a href="http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=913170">Mr. Rebates</a> is an established cash back site that has been in business for more than a dozen years. They offer cash back rates up to 30%, and deals such as free shipping. With a reasonable cash out threshold, a sign-up bonus that is available after your first purchase, the ability to request payment immediately, and an enticing referral program, it's worth an add to your list of sites to try.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 2000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10 which can be requested immediately.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No app, but they have a mobile site.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $5 sign-up bonus available after your first purchase.</p> <p><strong>Referral Program:</strong> Members earn 20% of each referral's cash back for life.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=913170"><strong>Sign up for Mr. Rebates and get your $5 bonus!</strong></a></p> <h2>16. CashCrate</h2> <p><a href="http://www.cashcrate.com/1168012">CashCrate</a> launched in 2006 and has paid out close to four million dollars to its members who earn cash by completing offers (many free), taking surveys, completing CrowdFlower tasks, watching videos, and shopping through their cash back store. Their shopping (cash back) section is newish and small right now with only 62 stores like Walmart, Macy's, and Lowe's. However, their rebate rate is competitive with other cash back programs.</p> <p>One unique aspect of Cash Crate's earning program is that members can earn two ways. One section is devoted to earning cash, and the other to earning gift cards (think Starbucks, Amazon, Visa, and more). Just decide what you're interested in earning and complete the tasks in that section.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> All countries are eligible although the U.S. and other English speaking countries will have the greatest number of offers.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> 62 and growing.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20 in the cash earning section, which is redeemable immediately. Gift cards can be redeemed immediately upon earning enough points in the prizes section of the site.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check. PayPal is an option once members have lifetime earnings of $500.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $1. In addition, members earn monthly bonuses for meeting an optional daily goal.</p> <p><a href="http://www.cashcrate.com/1168012"><strong>Sign up with CashCrate and start earning today!</strong></a></p> <h2>17. MainStreetShares</h2> <p>This cash back program offers an interesting proposition and incentive to join and use their site because members are shareholders. At<a href="http://mss.me/kabigcrumbs"> MainStreetShares</a> not only do members earn a percentage of the site's sales commission when making purchases from stores everyone knows and loves, they earn a portion of the advertising revenue as well in the form of shares called &quot;MsShares.&quot; From their site:</p> <p>&quot;&hellip;A large share of member shopping commissions is placed in a pool each month. We also add a share of other company revenue, such as advertising to this pool. At the end of the month, you are paid a percentage of the pool based on your percentage of total member spending for the month.&quot;</p> <p>Why do they do this? To attract users, of course. However, their larger goal is for someone to acquire the company, at which time members receive a portion of the sales price based on the number of MsShares they own. Until then, with competitive rates and a one dollar cash out threshold (though there is a 2% PayPal transaction fee), MainStreetShares is worth a look.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN, AUS, IRL, UK.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 1100.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> Paid monthly. Minimum $1 required.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal. There is a 2% processing fee up to one dollar charged. The fee is from PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> Members who earn MsShares &quot;will be entitled to a specially reserved additional 10% share of acquisition proceeds.&quot;</p> <p><a href="http://mss.me/kabigcrumbs"><strong>Click here to learn more about MainStreetShares!</strong></a></p> <h2>18. Cashback House</h2> <p><a href="http://www.cashbackhouse.com/">Cashback House</a> has a simple and straightforward looking site. It doesn't have the bells, whistles, and flash of many cash back sites, but it offers the basics like rebates for purchases, handpicked deals, and coupons. At $10.01 their cash back threshold isn't outrageously high and you can earn a little extra by sharing how much you've saved on Facebook.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN, UK.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 1000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10.01 which is processed weekly once a request has been made.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No. However, if you share how much you have saved on Facebook you will earn a $1 credit.</p> <h2>19. ExtraBux</h2> <p>Similar to the other cash back sites,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.extrabux.com/">Extrabux</a> is one of several sites that is available to people worldwide. Offering cash back ranging from 1-30%, Extrabux also offers coupon codes, promo codes, and comparison shopping. They have an attractive sign-up bonus and reasonable cash out threshold.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> Everywhere. Extrabux states that people from any country can join and earn cash back. Checks will only be mailed to those with a U.S. mailing address. However, people living outside of the U.S. can receive their cash back via PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> 2500.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $10 which can be requested immediately.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes, specifically for Black Friday.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $8.</p> <h2>20. Giving Assistant</h2> <p><a href="https://givingassistant.org/">Giving Assistant</a> refers to itself as the &quot;double cash back&quot; site because it passes along 100% of the commission to its customers. That is, there is no splitting like with the other sites. What's unique about this site, however, is its focus on giving. For every purchase that qualifies for cash back, Giving Assistant donates a meal to a family in need. They have donated more than 40,000 meals so far.</p> <p>In addition, users can elect to donate part or all of their cash back savings to one or more of the thousands of charities available to choose from on their site. I did some rate comparisons and found that Giving Assistant did often offer significantly higher (up to double) cash back rates than other sites. Their rates matched the best of those at TopCashBack, a site outlined below which also passes along its full commission. Though there is no sign-up bonus or referral program, the high cash back rate and low cash out threshold make this program appealing.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA as well as other countries, although they are not specified.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 1,000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $1 if paid out to a debit card, or $10 if payment is made by check. Payments are sent out quarterly.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> U.S.- based Bank Visa/Mastercard Debit card or check</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No.</p> <h2>21. Gyft</h2> <p><a href="https://www.gyft.com/">Gyft</a> is different from the other traditional cash back sites because their sole focus is selling gift cards. Most cash back sites do not allow, or strictly limit, the eligibility of cash rebates when purchasing gift cards or using them to pay for products. At Gyft, when you purchase gift cards, you earn points which can then be used for discounts on future gift card purchases.</p> <p>Better yet, for a limited time they'll give you a $5 gift card of your choice (in the form of a promotional code) to be used towards a gift card purchase of at least $15, on the spot just for signing up. In other words, you can get a $15 Amazon gift card (or Starbucks, Target, Walmart, Home Depot, whichever of the more than 200 you choose) for $10 just for trying them out. You can even store your gift card in your mobile wallet so you have it on the go and never forget it. Even if you never buy a gift card through them again, the immediate bonus is sweet. (Note that your free gift card bonus expires 24 hours after you sign up so use it right away.)</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More 200.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> 100 points &mdash; to be used as a discount on future gift card purchases.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods: </strong>You can pay for your gift cards with Google Pay, PayPal, Bitcoins, or credit/debit card.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus: </strong>$5 gift card of choice to be used on a gift card valued at $15 or more.</p> <h2>22. Paribus</h2> <p><a href="https://paribus.co/">Paribus</a> is a new endeavor unlike the other cash back sites listed here. It's a price adjustment cash back program, not a rebate program. Basically, they will search for a better price on any product that you have purchased online and get the difference back for you. Their business is hunting price reductions for you, filing a claim on your behalf and getting you a refund for the difference.</p> <p>Paribus works with stores like Target, Walmart, Amazon, Banana Republic, Macy's, Best Buy, and others that have price matching and adjustment policies. Currently only online purchases are eligible. How it works is that you sign up with the email address that you use for online shopping and they scan the receipts of your online purchases.</p> <p>The email scanning sounds creepy, right? They never have access to, or know your passwords.&nbsp;<a href="https://paribus.co/faq">Review their security measures</a> to learn exactly what they do. Is it worth it? To the extent that you may get money back for doing nothing, yeah. Is there a catch? Signing up is free, but when they get a refund for you they will take a 25% cut. Still, not a bad deal for something you may not have otherwise known about.</p> <p><strong>Where Available: </strong>USA.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods</strong>: PayPal or Venmo.</p> <h2>23. Retail Cashback</h2> <p>Another newer program,&nbsp;<a href="http://retailcashback.com/">Retail Cashback</a> started in 2013. It offers the expected complement of cash back stores, coupons, and featured deals. When comparing the rates of six retailers available on their site with three competitor sites, I found Retail Cashback to generally have rates that were the same as or slightly lower than those competitors. They do not offer a sign-up bonus and their cash out threshold is on the high side, but you can request your money immediately when it's reached.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> More than 4000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20 which can be requested immediately. Cash outs allowed once every 30 days.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check or PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-Up Bonus:</strong> No. However, their site states that regular members will sometimes get &quot;additional bonuses.&quot;</p> <h2>24. Simply Best Coupons</h2> <p>The&nbsp;<a href="https://www.simplybestcoupons.com/">Simply Best Coupons</a> website feels almost soothing compared to some of the others with colorful carnival colors. It must be the mellow sky blue background making everything softer. They offer thousands of cashbook stores, grocery, and printable coupons, as well as a couple of unique payout methods, including Western Union. Their cash out threshold is on the high side but they have a decent sign up bonus.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA and internationally. They have cash back stores for USA, AUS, CAN, IND, IRL, NZ, POL, UK, and RUS. Anyone can join and earn cash back if retailers ship to their country.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants: </strong>1000s per their site.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20 for checks and Western Union. $15 for PayPal and Amazon gift certificates.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check, Western Union, PayPal, and Amazon gift card. When the cash out threshold is met by the 15th of the month, payment is sent at the end of the month.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available</strong>: No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $5 available after first purchase.</p> <h2>25. GiftHulk</h2> <p>Started in 2011,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.gifthulk.com/">GiftHulk</a> is six million members strong. In addition to the typical ways to earn (watching videos, completing surveys, searching the internet, etc.), GiftHulk has a cash back shopping section with about 140 well known stores. Their cash back rate is competitive, but be sure not to be fooled by their currency which they call &quot;Hulk Coins.&quot; On GiftHulk, 1000 Hulk Coins equals $1. So when you see GiftHulk offering 40 Hulk Coins per dollar in the cash back shopping section, the rate to compare is 4% (40/1000). GiftHulk has a low cash out threshold which makes it attractive.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN, UK, AUS, DEU, FR, NZL.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> About 140.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $5 for cash and many gift cards.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal or gift cards.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> Not as of this writing. However, members earn bonuses for meeting an optional daily goal.</p> <h2>26. InstaGC</h2> <p><a href="http://www.instagc.com/">InstaGC</a>, which stands for Instant Gift Cards, has been in business since 2011. This rewards program has some ardent fans so it might be worth checking out even if you use other sites for your cash back shopping. Their shopping section includes about 70 stores with rates that are competitive. Ways to earn include listening to music, taking surveys, CrowdFlower, and the other usual suspects. The site layout is a little bland, but it's functional, and most importantly, pays.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, AUS, CAN, UK.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants:</strong> About 70.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $5 for cash or as little as $1 for gift cards.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check which incurs a 25 cent fee, or direct deposit which incurs a 15 cent fee. You may also redeem for one of 260 gift cards which have no fee starting at $1.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> A lofty 10 cents.</p> <h2>27. Sunshine Rewards</h2> <p>As their site states, &quot;<a href="http://www.sunshinerewards.com/">Sunshine Rewards</a> is a loyalty program dedicated to paying you back for taking surveys, visiting websites, and shopping on the internet. Get coupons, promo codes, discounts, free shipping, and cash back shopping.&quot; Members get cash back and earnings in the form of credits, where one credit equals one dollar. Their cash back shopping rates are competitive, with some being higher or lower than other sites at different times. The cash out threshold is on the high side at $20, but if you participate in the reward activities regularly it should not take long to reach it.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Merchants: </strong>Close to 1000.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20 and being a member for at least 45 days. Cash outs are limited to $500 a month.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal, Amazon gift certificate, or Disney gift card.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available</strong>: No.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> $2 sign up bonus.</p> <h2>Mobile Grocery Shopping Apps</h2> <p>What's better than using coupons for grocery shopping? Cash back mobile apps, that's what! Why? With these mobile apps, no coupons are needed, so there's no hunting or clipping. But, if you like coupons, you can combine them with cash back apps to increase your savings (and sometimes even get stuff for free). Plus, unlike traditional cash back programs, you can use gift cards to pay for items and still receive your rebate. Cool, huh?</p> <p>Here's how it works. Sign up online using a computer/tablet or going straight to the app. Download the app to your mobile device, review the cash rebates available, purchase the products you want, scan the product barcode, and/or upload the receipt to the site. Once your receipt is approved (typically within 24 to 48 hours), you get your rebate. Once you meet the cash out threshold, withdraw your money. That's it!</p> <p>Cool features include some apps offering cash back on products you rarely find coupons for like fresh fruit, veggies, bread, and dairy. And unlike traditional cash back sites there are no rates to compare. Best of all, because it's so little effort it's worth downloading all of them.</p> <h2>28. Shopmium</h2> <p><a href="http://www.shopmium.com/us/">Shopmium</a> has cool features like the ability to purchase items at any store that provides an itemized receipt, and immediate pay out, no matter the amount, after it's approved. It is very easy to join, requiring only an email address to get started. Members can choose to receive payment through PayPal or direct bank transfer. Even if you use it the app only occasionally, the fact that you can cash out immediately makes it worth using.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, Canada.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> About 15.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> No minimum. As soon as receipt is accepted you're paid.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal or bank transfer.</p> <p><strong>Mobile App Available:</strong> Yes.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> 50 cents after completing welcome activity.</p> <h2>29. BerryCart</h2> <p><a href="http://www.berrycart.com/">BerryCart</a> is the mobile cash back site for people who like organic, gluten free, non-GMO, and natural foods. If you regularly eat organic, natural foods you will probably recognize many of the brands offering cash back. With the increasing popularity of eating whole foods, you won't be limited to just being able to find the products listed within BerryCart at expensive stores like Whole Foods. In fact, while their list of cash back items hover around 50, users can purchase the products at any store that carries them as long as the receipt is itemized and includes the price.</p> <p>BerryCart also offers subscription boxes where cash back rebates are available for every item in the box. Keep an eye for sales and coupons to combine with your BerryCart rebates to make pricey organic foods much more affordable.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> Site does not specify, though the stores are all U.S- based. However, some items can be purchased through Amazon, which is international.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> About 50.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $5.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> Not at this time.</p> <h2>30. Checkout 51</h2> <p><a href="https://www.checkout51.com/">Checkout51</a> offers a variety of grocery cash back rebates ranging from a &quot;pick your own&quot; offer for fruits and vegetables, to specific food and beverage brands. Some products are well known, others are up and coming. Some are organic and/or gluten free. Some offers may be redeemed multiple times. Checkout51 offers are available for a week, and then they expire and are replaced by new ones. Many times, however, you'll see popular products remain for a few weeks.</p> <p>One neat opportunity is the ability to join their &quot;brand program, &quot;which means you'll receive extra offers for products within a specific brand. To participate in their brand program, members simply select the &quot;join&quot; button that pops up on the product cash back list.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> About 25&ndash;30, some may be redeemed multiple times.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> Not currently, though users do earn something for completing their profile.</p> <h2>31. Receipt Hog</h2> <p><a href="http://receipthog.com/">Receipt Hog</a> is interesting because it's a cash back mobile app that pays you even though you don't have to redeem any rebates through them. At Receipt Hog, you earn points by uploading pictures of receipts from just about any retailer. When you upload receipts from grocery stores, club stores, health and beauty retailers, pet stores, convenience stores, dollar stores, and more, members receive points according to the amount spent (i.e. earn five points when the total is less than $10).</p> <p>When receipts are uploaded from retailers that don't sell grocery items (think Staples or Macy's), members earn chances to spin their virtual slot machine where winners receive bonus points or $100. Receipt Hog also offers monthly challenges, like uploading receipts every week of the month for extra points. It sounds silly but it does pay.</p> <p>Why would they pay you? They're a market research company that has discovered an innovative way to collect data about consumer spending for the brands and retailers that enlist their services. Those retailers pay Receipt Hog and Receipt Hog pays its members. How much? The more points you earn before cashing out, the greater the value. For instance, 1000 points will get you $5 in cash or an Amazon gift card, while 1800 points will get you $10 cash or a $10 Amazon gift card. Most people who use the system regularly can probably easily earn $25&ndash;$50 a year. Not a lot, but it's not bad given you're not buying anything extra. Think of it more as an entertainment app that pays you for your shopping receipts.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> Just about everything qualifies.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $5 (or 1000 points).</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal or Amazon gift card.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No, but you do receive points for completing your profile.</p> <h2>32. Shrink</h2> <p><a href="http://www.shrinktheapp.com/">Shrink</a> is similar to BerryCart in that they specialize in all natural, organic food. Like a few of the sites listed here they also offer small cash back amounts on fresh food, even fresh seafood! Their unique twist is helping brands create customer loyalty. They do this by offering cash back rebates to try new and up and coming products like snacks, beverages, and frozen foods. If you like the product, become a &quot;brand ambassador&quot; by unlocking additional coupons. Continue to buy the product and be rewarded with points that can be turned into cash. Products can be purchased at any store that provides itemized receipts. Shrink is the only mobile app included here where you're unable to join from a computer or tablet. You must download their app to join.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> About 60.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> PayPal.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> No, but you do receive $1 for completing your profile.</p> <h2>33. Snap by Groupon</h2> <p>Who knew <a href="http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-2822544-10828386-1399573918000?sid=epic_CB">Groupon</a> had a cash back mobile app? This program is owned by Groupon, but is a separate entity. Even if you already use Groupon, you'll need to set up a separate account to use Snap.</p> <p><a href="https://snap.groupon.com/">Snap</a> has a bit of a twist as offers need to be &quot;snapped up&quot; before they are gone. You'll see warnings next to items when the number of rebates available for specific products is running low as well as a &quot;GONE&quot; sign when they are&hellip; well, gone. Snap offers an assortment of products from food and beverages, organic options, magazines, and personal care products. Many products can be redeemed more than once and can be purchased from any store that provides an itemized receipt. They also offer bonus activities, like three times the cash back when purchasing certain items, and they have a $100 giveaway for posting pictures of payment on their Facebook page.</p> <p><strong>Where Available:</strong> USA, CAN.</p> <p><strong>Number of Products:</strong> About 40, many can be redeemed multiple times.</p> <p><strong>Cash-Out Threshold:</strong> $20.</p> <p><strong>Payment Methods:</strong> Check.</p> <p><strong>Sign-up Bonus:</strong> Not at this time.</p> <p><em>Whew!

But whether using traditional auctions, or the more popular Buy It Now option, what should you be going to eBay for first? And, what should you be <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/6-weird-things-to-sell-on-ebay-for-extra-cash">selling on eBay</a> to ensure you get the most money for your items?</p> <h2>What to Buy on eBay</h2> <p>For all this stuff, eBay is the place to shop.</p> <h3>1. Personalized Items</h3> <p>Back in the day, a personalized item (whether for yourself, or as a gift for a friend or loved one) was something that cost quite a bit of money. Nowadays, thanks to eBay and international sellers, you can get some truly awesome items for a fraction of what you would expect. I recently used eBay to find a Ghostbusters nametag for my Halloween outfit this year, finding someone willing to custom embroider my last name, in the exact font and colors used in the movie, for $10 including shipping. I was astonished &mdash; it was great quality, too. I've ordered nameplates, shirts, hats, monogrammed pens, and so many other items for almost the same cost as it would be without the personalization.</p> <h3>2. Anything Vintage, Rare, or Hard to Find</h3> <p>If you can think of it, you'll probably find it on eBay. If you're into Star Trek comics from the '80s, or souvenirs from Alcatraz, there will be someone out there on eBay selling it &mdash; it's why I always go to eBay first when I'm looking for something nostalgic. I've found old TV shows that regular stores won't carry, original Xbox games, action figures from my childhood, and crazy shirts and suits from the 1960s. The best thing about eBay is that you can shop for all of these items in one place, add them to your cart, and do one checkout. Your payment will be sent to the multiple sellers separately.</p> <h3>3. Used and Refurbished Tools</h3> <p>Great tools can be very expensive. Of course, cheap tools may save you money in the short term, but they will break, or worse, cause an injury. But, you don't have to go to the hardware stores and pay top dollar for top tools. The selection you'll find on eBay will stagger you, and will always come in cheaper than those you'll find in stores near you. From power drills and sanders, to wrenches and garden tools, eBay has everything you want &mdash; most of the time with free shipping. Just don't wait until the last minute to order something.</p> <h3>4. Jewelry</h3> <p>Provided you know your size (and many places online will let you <a href="http://images.zales.com/images/popups/zales_ringsizer.pdf">download a sizing chart</a> for free anyway), you can get some insane deals on all kinds of jewelry, from high-end valuables, to $10 rings and necklaces. The selection available on eBay will dwarf anything at a brick-and-mortar jeweler, and you can benefit from eBay's buyer guarantees. I have a bunch of very large, intricate skull rings that I found on eBay for between $10 and $20 apiece. They all came with free shipping, and are made of surgical steel. Would I have liked silver? Maybe, but they look exactly the same and cost 10 times less. I get comments on them all the time, and when people ask which store I got them from, I always say eBay. Most people seem surprised.</p> <h3>5. Automotive Parts</h3> <p>Make no mistake, if you are looking for parts to replace the broken ones in your car or truck, the last place you want to get them is the dealership or specialist supply store. In every case (unless someone would like to prove otherwise), you are going to be paying significant markups, as these places have to support a large staff, building costs, and all the other overhead. When you shop on eBay, you have access to hundreds and thousands of parts from both licensed sellers, hobbyists, and people who find parts at wrecking yards. As always, you'll be protected by a guarantee from eBay, so if the part is not exactly as described, you can get your money back. Just remember, if it's a used part, you want to inspect it very carefully before having it installed.</p> <h2>What to Sell on eBay</h2> <p>For the most part, if you want to be rid of it, someone else wants to buy it.</p> <h3>6. Your Good Quality Shoes and Clothing</h3> <p>When the time comes to clear out the closet in spring or fall, most of us take those clothes and shoes to the local thrift stores. Not so fast. Take a look through your pile and see what you have.</p> <p>Any high-end name brand clothing and footwear in good condition can earn you a significant amount of money on eBay. An old track jacket that you don't like, or have outgrown, can earn almost all of its money back. Sometimes, you can make more than you paid for it, if the item was a limited edition, or was worn by someone famous in a show or movie. A case in point&hellip;the Black Sabbath T-shirt that Tony Stark wore in <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Marvels-Avengers-Two-Disc-Blu-ray-Packaging/dp/B0083SBJXS">The Avengers</a>. Before the movie came out, it was a $5 tee. After, people were paying big money for it, until the stores caught on and issued a reprint. So, next time you clean out the closet, make two piles &mdash; one for thrift, the other for eBay.</p> <h3>7. Fabrics, Curtains, and Sheets</h3> <p>Mark this one down as another category that most of us think is worthless. Or, at least not worth the hassle of selling. Actually, you'd be surprised. In particular, old curtains that may not suit your current décor could be highly prized by someone theming out their apartment or office, particularly if they have a very distinctive or &quot;dated&quot; pattern. What is out of style to some is very chic to others.</p> <p>The same goes for sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases, and all those fabric remnants that you have left over from craft projects. You can even sell fabric and upholstery scraps, and I mean the smallest off-cuts. Right now, a pound of leather scraps can sell for $20 including shipping; that's $20 you were about to throw in the trash.</p> <h3>8. Legos</h3> <p>It doesn't matter if you have a complete set, a set missing a few pieces, or a random bucket of assorted Lego bricks &mdash; they will all sell quickly on eBay. And, you may be surprised at how much money you can get. I recently found a Lego Star Wars Imperial Destroyer at my local thrift store for $10. It was still in the box, but was clearly not all there. After doing a count, over 30 pieces were missing. I figured I'd throw it on eBay to see what happened, and it sold for over $100. Some of the figures from these sets can sell for $5&ndash;$10 each!</p> <p>What you have to remember with Lego is that the pieces you have may complete sets other people desperately want to build, and they will pay for it. Lego is also expensive to buy new, and that will never change. So, grab your Lego pieces and bag them up. You can sell them by the pound.</p> <h3>9. Anything Collectible</h3> <p>Whether it's rare baseball cards, signed hockey jerseys, vintage vinyl, or a prototype of an Apple computer from Steve Wozniak's garage, these items will fare way better from the auction-style listings on eBay than a fixed priced listing on Craigslist, or even a garage sale. You also have the chance to reach a worldwide audience, which makes the bidding war international. Something you may have gotten $50&ndash;$100 for may get you ten times that amount on eBay, if you find the right buyer at the right time.</p> <p>A prime example of this is the vintage Denver Nuggets jersey I recently sold on eBay. I was planning to list it for $25 on Craigslist, but instead I started it at $15 on eBay. It was a risk, since I could have gotten $10 less than I wanted. In the end, I got $162 for that jersey. Even after eBay takes their percentage, it's still a much better deal.</p> <h3>10. Cell Phones, Tablets, and Other Tech</h3> <p>When you replace your cell phone, you may be tempted to do a trade-in deal. Don't do it. You will get a rock bottom price for it from the store, because they plan to sell it for a profit. Instead, gather all of the accessories, the charger, and hopefully the original box, and sell it on eBay. The thing that attracts people to used smartphones is that they are not tied to a contract. With a little digging, you may also be able to unlock your phone first, making it suitable for any carrier. A phone you may have gotten $50 for from a store could sell for over $200 on eBay, and it's as simple as taking a few photos and creating a listing.</p> <p>The same thing applies to tablets, smart watches, laptops, and other technology. Even old, broken, and irreparable technology will sell, as it can be dismantled for parts. Do not simply throw these things out until you have first searched eBay for current prices.</p> <p><em>What items have you bought or sold on eBay?</em></p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/paul-michael">Paul Michael</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/10-things-you-should-always-buy-and-sell-on-ebay">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

By 2016, it's expected to flourish into a billion dollar business. That doesn't even begin to scratch the surface, though, since bong and pipes sales and tourist spending at hotels and restaurants are absent from that figure. And as <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/8-things-you-can-do-in-denver-that-you-cant-do-anywhere-else">marijuana is legalized</a> in more states and jurisdictions, the opportunity to profit will only grow.</p> <p>So how can you capitalize on weed?</p> <h2>1. Land Bank Prime Tracts of Farmland</h2> <p>Marijuana doesn't grow on trees. It grows in the ground, and as the legal weed business blossoms, growers will be looking for real estate on which to sow their seeds. Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and the Carolinas are popular states for tobacco growers. If you're in a position to increase your land holdings, you might want to consider investing in farmland in one of these states, since experts say it's likely many weed growers will look to former tobacco farms for their land holdings. California's another good bet. As weed growers look to expand their acreage, the value of land for growing operations is expected to soar.</p> <h2>2. Invest in Marijuana Stocks</h2> <p>In 2014, publically traded marijuana companies experienced double digit gains. That's a good indication that the time is right to invest your green in the weed industry. The ArcView Group, a cannabis industry investment and research firm, predicts a <a href="http://finance.yahoo.com/news/techies-profit-booming-pot-business-140000160.html">33% rise in marijuana sales</a> this year &mdash; from $2.7 billion in 2014 to $3.5 billion in 2015. The potential for future growth is huge. &quot;Big tobacco, big pharma, even big agriculture companies are starting to kick the tires to see where the opportunities are,&quot; said Chris Walsh, managing editor of Marijuana Business Daily. &quot;If full legalization happens, you'll see a surge of companies from other industries get involved.&quot;</p> <h2>3. Land a Job in the Cannabis Industry</h2> <p>There are an estimated 7,500 to 10,000 marijuana industry jobs right now in Colorado &mdash; it's the fastest growing industry in the state. This rapid growth is generating hundreds of new jobs a year. In addition to weed trimming and store clerk gigs, there are managerial roles, information science opportunities, and event promotion jobs. You can easily peruse the opportunities at <a href="http://420careers.com/">420 Careers</a>. Working in the weed business may be more highbrow than you think.</p> <h2>4. Become a Weed Entrepreneur</h2> <p>Apart from the growing and selling of marijuana, there's endless opportunity to cash in on the weed business as an entrepreneur. Legalization has sprouted a burgeoning marijuana packaging and accessories industry. Demand is high for new and innovative projects. A company named Pottles, for example, makes airtight, smell-proof pot containers. Stink Sack vends child-resistant pot packaging.</p> <p><a href="http://thebureau.nyc/collections/all">The Bureau</a> &mdash; a self-funded start-up founded in 2012 with $60,000 and a $500,000 angel investment &mdash; sells stylish, design-driven weed packaging with features like embossed glass, treated wood, and secret compartments. Yahoo! Finance reports that the founders expect their company, which launched this year, to be profitable by the end of its first 12 months in business. &quot;I was, and still am, surprised to see that cannabis is sold in plastic baggies, repurposed plastic pop-top containers, and other methods that more closely mirror the days where cannabis was only available on a street corner,&quot; The Bureau founder Josh Gordon says.</p> <h2>5. Become a Legalization Lobbyist</h2> <p>Michael Correia is the marijuana industry's first full-time lobbyist. He certainly won't be the last. In 1969, only 12% of the country supported the legalization of marijuana, the Washington Post reports. Last year, that number was 58%. The growing desire for legalization, coupled with the small number of places within the U.S. where the drug is legal, is creating a new niche for folks with the skill to persuade lawmakers to support America's newest industry boon. &quot;It's really a legitimate and respected force now,&quot; says Rep.

Or perhaps you've been dreaming of starting your own business using your homemade items as stock. Whatever the case, there are plenty of places online where you can list your wares and earn some pretty decent coin in return. Here's the lowdown on a few of the most popular <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-ways-etsy-can-help-start-your-small-business">marketplaces for crafters and artists</a>.</p> <h2>1. Etsy</h2> <p>Over 30 million people from across the globe use <a href="http://www.etsy.com/">Etsy</a> to buy and sell anything from handmade jewelry to one-of-a-kind house decor. You can even sell craft supplies and rare vintage items, if that's more your speed. Overall, this is one of the most popular arts communities online and even offers the convenience of cool features like gift cards.</p> <p>Another bonus is low costs: there are no membership fees on Etsy, and it costs just $0.20 to list an item until it sells. The site does collect a 3.5% fee on the total sale price (including shipping) of each item. All sales transaction are done through Direct Checkout, PayPal, check, or money order. To learn more, check out Etsy's comprehensive <a href="https://www.etsy.com/seller-handbook">Seller Handbook</a> with details on photography, shipping, growth strategies, and more.</p> <h2>2. eBay</h2> <p>Marketplace giant <a href="http://www.ebay.com/">eBay</a> has been around since 1995. If you can dream it, you can likely find it somewhere on the site for a price. A few of the more prominent craft categories on eBay include woodworking, scrapbooking, ceramics and pottery, textile art, craft supplies, and even origami. One of eBay's most unique features is its different buying structures, including auctions. You can set a low auction starting price on your items and/or choose a set Buy-It-Now amount.</p> <p>Whichever you choose, understand that there are various <a href="http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/fees.html">selling fees</a> involved in all transactions. You'll likely encounter an insertion fee, final sale fee, and some upgrade fees, depending on how you choose to list. The amounts vary by item, but &mdash; for example &mdash; a $30 sewn doll with $5 shipping will cost you $3.15, according to the <a href="http://www.fees.ebay.com/feeweb/feecalculator">fee calculator</a>. Read eBay's <a href="http://pages.ebay.com/buy/guides/crafts-selling-guide/">Crafts Selling Guide</a> for more details on making listings, selling your stuff, and shipping.</p> <h2>3. Bonanza</h2> <p>&quot;Find everything but the ordinary&quot; is <a href="http://www.bonanza.com/">Bonanza</a>'s site motto, and for good reason. You can discover anything from crocheted potholders to beaded necklaces to original canvas paintings. Better yet, the site is well known as a good alternative to some of the bigger name marketplaces out there. Over 50,000 sellers have shared that they prefer the site to others like Etsy and eBay for the low fees, customer service, and profitability.</p> <p>Like eBay, you'll find the craft items among many other things for sale like collectibles, women's retail fashion, makeup, and more. The difference? There are no fees unless your item sells. You'll encounter a 3.5% fee on final order values less than $500 &mdash; but that's minus a shipping fee exemption of up to $10 to keep some extra money in your pocket. Check out the <a href="http://www.bonanza.com/site_help/booths_setup">Selling on Bonanza</a> guide for more information.</p> <h2>4. Zibbet</h2> <p>How about no listing fees, no sale fees, and a free account? That's exactly what you'll get with <a href="https://www.zibbet.com/">Zibbet</a>. The site stays true to its mission by selling only handmade items &mdash; and absolutely nothing that has been mass-produced.</p> <p>If you currently sell goods on Etsy, you can use the site's handy import tool to automatically switch your listings to Zibbet. You'll also find some powerful promotional tools, like custom coupon codes and gift certificates that get buyers clicking again and again. Take advantage of your account's statistics to track your sales and progress. For more about selling with Zibbet, check out the site's <a href="https://www.zibbet.com/sell">selling page</a>.</p> <h2>5. iCraft</h2> <p>If you're trying to avoid sites that are bogged down by too much unrelated merchandise, check out <a href="http://icraftgifts.com/">iCraft</a>. The site features handmade items exclusively &mdash; nothing vintage, for resale, or food related &mdash; and is <a href="http://icraftgifts.com/what-considered-handmade.php">quite selective</a> about what can go up for sale. Their guidelines may sound overly specific, but your audience will be greatly targeted by the time they reach your store to browse around.</p> <p>There is a one-time registration fee of $25 to set up a store with iCraft. Instead of the standard listing fees included with other marketplaces, you choose between subscription rates ranging from $5 to $15 a month, depending on the number of items you'd like to list.

I started out writing just for fun. In fact, I didn't understand that bloggers could actually make money by simply sharing their lives online. Somewhere along the way, I discovered that I could monetize my blog and earn a little extra money while working from home. Here are some of the essential insights I've learned along the way, and how they can also help you make some <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/how-do-bloggers-make-money-what-every-non-blogger-should-know">extra cash through blogging</a>.</p> <h2>1. Image Ads</h2> <p>I started making money all those years ago through <a href="http://www.google.com/adsense/start/">Google AdSense</a> ads. My blog is hosted on Blogger, and the ads fit into my template like a glove. When my site gets lots of traffic, my revenue is higher (you get paid a varying amount per click), and the inverse is also true. In more recent years, I've had mixed experiences with these ads. I've definitely made less money despite similar traffic rates, which is why I've ultimately diversified.</p> <p>Alternatively, you can seek out advertisers on your own. For example, craft bloggers might get shops from Etsy to sign on for ads at monthly rates. Local blogs might attract area businesses for support, and so on. You'll need a spot on your sidebar to display the ads to drive traffic to their sites and get the artwork from your advertisers in the form of a JPEG. I've seen bloggers set up contracts for this type of advertising on one month, quarterly, or yearly commitments. Some also offer different sizes at different prices.</p> <h2>2. Ad Networks</h2> <p>When I noticed my AdSense ads weren't performing optimally anymore, I shopped around for a publishing network. I chose <a href="http://www.blogher.com">BlogHer</a>, which is now known as SheKnows, because I liked the community of women writers and several of my friends had shared good experiences. Like many networks, I had to apply, be accepted, and sign a contract. In the years since, I've been pleased with my decision.</p> <p>Networks require bloggers to place a banner or sidebar ad in prime real estate on their sites. In return, bloggers get opportunities to write sponsored posts and do paid reviews for campaigns the team coordinates on their behalf. Another popular ad network I've heard great things about is <a href="http://www.federatedmedia.net">Federated Media</a>. Truth is, there are many out there &mdash; so be sure to read all the fine print before signing.</p> <h2>3. Product Reviews</h2> <p>Bloggers who don't want to join special ad networks can also seek out sponsorships on their own. This process might require some hunting time or &mdash; occasionally &mdash; companies might contact you directly about certain campaigns they'd like to run. Payment can vary wildly from free products/services to several thousand dollars depending on the arrangement.</p> <p>Whenever I do a review outside of my network, I make sure to have a contract with all the details and conditions written out clearly. Don't be shy about setting your price. In the beginning, you might want to just do plain reviews of products in exchange for the free product. As your site gains more traffic and popularity, you can start setting rates and negotiating. Above all, it's important to give true thoughts and opinions in any reviews &mdash; no matter the pay. Otherwise, you might lose the trust of your readers.</p> <h2>4. Affiliate Links</h2> <p>There are lots of different stores and marketplaces with affiliate programs across the web. One of the most popular with bloggers is <a href="https://affiliate-program.amazon.com">Amazon Associates</a>. Of course, there are many <a href="http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/amazon-affiliate-alternative/">alternatives to Amazon</a> if you'd rather stick with something more specific, too. The way it works is anytime you link to a product using your referral code, you'll earn a percentage back if your readers purchase that item (and sometimes other items in that order).</p> <p>Adding affiliate links to your blog is easy, but take care not to oversaturate your content with products. Instead, consider occasional shopping posts where you recommend some of your favorite items or review things you own and enjoy. That way, your content is helpful to your readers and not just a big referral link dump.</p> <h2>5. Text Link Ads</h2> <p>I've never personally used text link ads, but I have received emails with offers. Usually these arrangements involve linking a few words on a certain post to a designated site. Payments can range from $25 to several hundred in the offers I've received. There are also sites like <a href="http://www.linkworth.com/#publisher">LinkWorth</a> where you can sign up to get opportunities for your site.</p> <p>Be careful with this type of advertising because the sites linked often have little to do with your blog's actual content and, therefore, can seem inauthentic. Regardless, bloggers can make a good sum of money through this type of advertising.</p> <p>My best advice to any blogger looking to monetize is to write first and make money second. If you are new to blogging, take care in creating unique, thoughtful content that will engage and entertain your readers. The rest can come later once you've built the relationships.</p> <p><em>Bloggers: How do you earn money? There are certainly other ways that I haven't tried (or maybe even heard about).

Are you &quot;Binging&quot; yet? That is, have you joined the <a href="http://bing-rewards.evyy.net/c/27771/89275/2168">Bing Rewards program</a>, and are you using Bing as your search engine? If not you're missing out on free money.</p> <p>The&nbsp;<a href="http://bing-rewards.evyy.net/c/27771/89275/2168">Bing Rewards</a> program pays people to use the Bing search engine. They award credits (points) which can be redeemed for rewards such as gift cards to Amazon, Starbucks, Applebee's, Fandango, GameStop, iTunes, and more. You can also use the credits to get Hulu Prime, or Xbox Live memberships, or donate your credits to charity.</p> <p>Participating in the Bing Rewards program is simple and only takes a couple of minutes a day. To make sure you're getting the most out of the program consider the following eight tips below.</p> <h2>1. Max Out Your Points and Go Mobile, Too</h2> <p>Max out the number of credits you can earn each day and receive $100 to $200 a year in free rewards. When you join Bing Rewards you'll be able to earn a certain amount of credits per day. It seems most people earn 15 credits per day searching on their computer or tablet.</p> <p>Regardless of how many credits you can earn by Binging on your computer or tablet, everyone can earn an additional 10 credits a day by downloading the Bing search engine app on their mobile devices. Add these credits to those earned by searching on your computer and tablet and you're looking at a few extra dollars each month.</p> <h2>2. Bing Every Day</h2> <p>If you want to earn $100 or more a year in free gift cards or other goodies, make sure to use the Bing search engine every day. Sounds easy, right? It is, especially if you use a computer or tablet a lot. Plus, it only takes a few minutes. But here's the thing: Because there is a limit to how many credits you can earn each day (between 15 and 45), it can also feel a bit tedious, too &mdash; like it takes an eternity to earn enough points to do anything with. This leads some people to give up, cash in points for smaller rewards, or use the Bing search engine sporadically.</p> <p>To combat this, many people default their homepage to Bing or download the toolbar to make it easier to remember to use it when searching. That can help, but it's just as important to do it every day. My suggestion is to search for 60 days without thinking about cashing out. Take that pressure off of yourself. Once the time has passed, you'll be more satisfied with the amount of credits you have to work with to get some bigger rewards.</p> <h2>3. Get to Gold Level Status</h2> <p>Why is this important? Because once you hit Gold level, you receive a discount on many of the rewards available, thus increasing the value of your credits. Here's how it works. When you first join Bing Rewards you are a regular &quot;member&quot; as you search and get credits. Once you accrue 200 credits, you are promoted to Silver status, and receive a one-time 50 credit bonus. You also have to redeem some points for something before moving onto Gold level. Choose something small, like a sweepstakes entry, so you keep as many credits as possible for bigger rewards. Continue Binging until you hit Gold level, <strong>which is when you hit a total of 700 credits.</strong></p> <p>Now get ready for discounts on certain rewards. For instance, non-Gold level members redeem 525 credits for a $5 Starbucks gift card, while Gold level members pay 475 credits for the same $5 card. That 50 credit difference adds up over time and can make a difference in your yearly reward earnings. To maintain Gold level status and remain eligible for the discount, you must earn 150 search credits per month. This is very easy to do in a few days if you are maxing out your searches.</p> <h2>4. Don't Forget About the Bonus Credits</h2> <p>Bing offers bonus credits practically every day, and they come in various forms. Sometimes they'll offer double points for a day (or a week or a month), or points for answering trivia questions, or for checking out a product or story they are sponsoring. The credits add to your freebie bottom line and all you have to do is check your Bing rewards dashboard each day that you search to see what's available.</p> <h2>5. Know the Value of Your Credits</h2> <p>How much are Bing credits worth? I like to think of each credit being valued at roughly one cent each. Bing awards a credit for every two searches performed up to the max allotted each day. So one penny is earned for every two search queries. Converting it in this way helps me evaluate the relative value of the rewards available for redemption.</p> <p>For instance, if I wanted to redeem my points for a $5 Amazon gift card it would cost me 525 credits if I were not a Gold level member. This translates to paying $5.25 for a $5 gift card. Not a bad deal considering it's free. But, if I wait until I am at Gold level, that same $5 Amazon gift card could be mine for 475 Bing credits, or $4.75. Getting a $5 gift card for $4.75 is more like it! Sure the difference is only a quarter, but it adds up over time.</p> <p>Some rewards are bad even if you are a Gold member. For instance, to get a $5 Tango gift card (Tango is a company that offers gift cards to numerous retailers like Home Depot, Williams Sonoma, Target, and more) you'd have to redeem 575 credits. That's the discounted Gold level price! Hmm. Paying $5.75 for a $5 gift card? I think I'll pass. Speaking of passing&hellip;</p> <h2>6. Always Bypass the Sweepstakes Entries</h2> <p>Bing has some wonderful sweepstakes opportunities. At any given time Bingers can win cash, all expenses paid trips to sporting events, computers, and more, all for the price of a few Bing Rewards credits. Don't do it! It's not that the sweepstakes aren't legit. They are. It's just that the odds of winning are so tiny that you're throwing your credits away. I mean, sure Bing offers fabulous prizes, but they are saving money in the end because the more people who enter the sweepstakes the less Bing has to pay out in reward redemptions. Yeah, I'm tempted to enter every now and again, but I think I'll keep my 35 cents, I mean credits.</p> <h2>7. Consider Binging With Someone</h2> <p>You know the saying &quot;Two heads are better than one?&quot; Well the same can be said for Binging. Bing Rewards allows up to five members of the same household to join and earn rewards. While that means free stuff for everyone, there are times when doubling up can increase your spending power. For instance, my husband and I like Groupon because we live in an area where there a lot of offers to places we frequent anyway. Since a $5 Groupon can be had for 470 credits ($4.70) as a Gold member, we'll redeem a number of those, wait until there is a $10 off coupon, and get our deal for free with a discount!</p> <h2>8. Refer Your Friends</h2> <p>Any good rewards program has a referral program, right? Bing is no different. When you refer people to Bing Rewards and they join, you earn referral credits once they hit Silver status (earn 200 credits).</p> <p>The Bing Rewards program is probably the simplest, lowest effort rewards program out there.

Cameras! Cue audience applause! You know those TV shows? The ones taped in front of a live studio audience? The ones that air daily and seem to be on all of the time with no reruns? Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes or how people get to be in the <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/7-ways-to-get-people-to-listen-when-you-talk">audience</a>? How do they fill their seats every single day? Especially the, well, not so good shows. The answer is surprisingly simple.</p> <p>TV shows pay people to attend. No, not all of them, but many, and some are very well-known shows at that. Take <em>The People's Court</em> for instance. You could earn $70 for sitting in their courtroom. How about the <em>Beat Bobby Flay</em> cooking competition? Folks can earn $54 just for attending, and probably get a tasty sample to boot. Interested? It's not hard to do. Here's what you need to know.</p> <h2>1. Pay Rates Vary by Show</h2> <p>As you can see from the examples above, the amount that you can earn as a paid audience member can vary. Some shows pay a set fee and others pay an hourly rate. The amount of time involved can differ too. Some shows will pay for one taping, and for other shows audience members participate in two, three, or more tapings in a day. Payment is received on the same day and is almost always in cash.</p> <h2>2. Some Shows Provide Transportation</h2> <p>For example, a number of shows that used to tape in New York City moved to Stamford, Connecticut, presumably to save money on production costs. Since it's easier to find public transportation to NYC than Connecticut, these shows offer transportation to keep the seats full. In this case, audience members meet at a location pre-determined by the show. A bus picks everyone up, takes them to the show, and returns them to the original location.</p> <h2>3. Sometimes You'll Be Fed</h2> <p>One time I attended a show with my mom and we received pre-taping breakfast pastries, coffee and juice, and pizza for lunch after the taping. Many shows do this. Many do not. You most likely won't know in advance. Think of it as a welcome surprise if it does happen.</p> <h2>4. It's Easier to Get Paid Audience Gigs if You Reside on the Coasts</h2> <p>The reality is that most shows are taped on the East or West coast, so if you don't have easy access to the New York or Los Angeles areas, you won't have as many options. This could still work for you if you're visiting the area and plan for it in advance. It would be a fun and unique vacation experience.</p> <h2>5. Some People Audience-Sit as a Job</h2> <p>Not a formal job, mind you. But if you live in the vicinity of a lot of tapings like Los Angeles, you can earn as much as, or more than, minimum wage for a day's sitting. This is appealing to a variety of people like actors trying to break in, students, or anyone really who wants to earn some cash while keeping a flexible schedule. There is of course no guarantee that audience-sitting gigs will be available exactly when you want them, but there are a lot of opportunities available for folks who hustle.</p> <h2>6. So How Do I Find the Shows That Pay?</h2> <p>There are a variety of ways to find paid seat-filling gigs from checking the Craigslist &quot;talent,&quot; &quot;gigs,&quot; or &quot;TV&quot; sections, to subscribing to newsletters that typically target actors. The easiest way to find paid audience-sitting opportunities is to go to the companies that specialize in them. Below are two of the most well-known companies that fit the bill:</p> <h3>Onset Productions</h3> <p>Here you will find opportunities to be&nbsp;<a href="https://onsetproductions.com/">paid audience members</a>, get cast as a performer for product endorsements, or just score free tickets to TV shows like, <em>MTV Catfish Aftershow</em>, or the <em>Bridezilla's Reunion Aftershow</em>. The paid audience member opportunities are mostly lump sums, like $50&ndash;$70 (sometimes more, sometimes less). Some shows provide transportation to the tapings. Interested parties complete a free online profile which includes age, gender, and ethnicity. Once your profile is created, you can request tickets from the numerous shows available. You'll be notified if you've been chosen to receive tickets, and if it's a show that indicated that it is paying, you'll enjoy a show and walk out with some extra cash.</p> <h3>Standing Room Only</h3> <p>This process of finding paid seat-filling opportunities is similar to Onset Productions in that you fill out a profile before requesting tickets to a show. Though their game shows and political talk shows&nbsp;<a href="http://www.standingroomonly.tv/">pay an hourly rate</a> as opposed to a lump sum.</p> <p>There are other companies out there, like&nbsp;<a href="http://www.auditionsfree.com/">Auditions Free</a>, that primarily focus on casting extras and actors for movies, that occasionally offer paid audience-sitting gigs as well. But if experiencing a TV show from behind the camera while getting paid is your primary objective, it's easier to stick with the two companies above.</p> <p><em>Is audience-sitting something you'd try?

A courthouse or title researcher does just that. This little-known job is popular among <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-financial-pitfalls-stay-at-home-parents-should-avoid">stay-at-home moms</a> and retirees. Getting started takes time, but the business is steady.</p> <h2>What Is a Title or Courthouse Researcher?</h2> <p>A courthouse researcher is an independent contractor who researches public records to gather information for their client. You could be researching anything from genealogy, property records, titles, probate cases, tax liens, or even criminal records.</p> <p>While a courthouse or title researcher is considered a work-at-home job, sometimes it might be necessary to actually go into the county courthouse to conduct the research, while other times you might be able to find the online version of the records you're looking for. If you have to do research in a courthouse, you are governed by their hours, which are usually between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and on weekdays only. The good thing is that you're able to be flexible with your own hours, especially when you're able to work from your home.</p> <p>No specific degree or education is required to become a courthouse researcher, which can make it appealing to anyone who is looking for supplemental income. Some companies will help to train you, but you'll want to be familiar with a courthouse setting and where they keep their records. You can always ask for assistance within the courthouse, too.</p> <h2>Average Salary for Courthouse Researchers</h2> <p>The income you can expect for being a courthouse researcher varies greatly by the companies you work for and your speed. Speed and accuracy are incredibly important in this field, and the faster you're able to find and collect a record, the faster you're able to move onto the next one. As an entry level researcher, you might be making about $0.25&ndash;$0.30 a record. Once you're able to get comfortable in the position and have learned how to quickly locate records, you can expect earnings to increase. As of April 2015, the <a href="http://www.simplyhired.com/salaries-k-court-researcher-jobs.html">average annual salary</a> of a courthouse researcher is $48,000.</p> <p>Some jobs might require that you travel to neighboring county courthouses, which will add additional costs in the way of mileage and fuel fees. If you keep track of your mileage, it makes a good deduction when you file your taxes.</p> <h2>Where to Find Jobs</h2> <p>Keep in mind that some companies have a non-compete policy, so that you are only able to work for them. The most common companies that hire for this type of job are listed below. (Some may not be hiring in your area right now, but keep checking with them if you're unable to find something that works for you.)</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://ameristarusa.com/careers.aspx?nset=0401&amp;hdr=3&amp;tpl=careers">Ameristar</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.deltadocument.com/">Delta Document</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.wolfgangresearch.com/Pages/default.aspx">Wolfgang Research</a></li> <li><a href="http://sunlark.com/">Sunlark Research</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.findanheir.com/Employment.aspx">Find an Heir</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.courthousedirect.com/">CourthouseDirect.com</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.work4jbs.com/">Jellybean Services</a></li> </ul> <p>Seasoned researchers have also found it useful to get to know the employees at the local courthouse, network, and leave a business card. According to one researcher with years of experience, it's not uncommon to get work in this field by <a href="http://www.1099mom.com/2011/09/i-want-to-be-courthouse-researcher.html">checking the bulletin boards</a> found at the entrances and common areas of the courthouse itself.</p> <p><em>Does becoming a courthouse researcher interest you?</em></p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/linsey-knerl">Linsey Knerl</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/how-to-earn-extra-income-as-a-courthouse-researcher">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.
