28 ways to make an extra $100 every day


Avatar Written by:

There are tons of ways to make extra money whether that means getting a second job, taking on a side hustle, creating streams of passive income or looking for ways to make extra money online in your spare time.

I bet if you were to make an extra $100 every day, you would feel pretty good about your finances. Am I right?

I mean, it isn’t the easiest thing to save or make an extra $100 every day, but it is doable. Anything is doable if you think about it. That is an extra $35,600 a year! That is better than alright in my opinion.

You may not be able to make $100 every day, but you might come close.

1. Rent our your car on Turo

28 ways to make an extra $100 every day

Turo is this amazing app that is basically the Airbnb of cars. You can rent out your car on Turo and get paid for other people to rent your car instead of them renting cars from services like Enterprise or Hertz. Depending on the market value of your car, you can easily make $100 extra a day just for letting other people drive your car.

Check out how to list your car for rent on Turo here and if you decide to do so, the process only takes about 10 minutes.

Have you ever heard of an app called Getaround? Neither have I until a few days ago. Getaround is an app where you rent out your parked car to others and get paid monthly. Listing your car on the app is 100% free and managing rentals is easy. You can choose how and when to rent your car and the app does the rest along with the smart car technology. Plus they provide $1,000,000 insurance on every trip and 24/7 roadside assistance.

2. Get paid for playing around online

28 ways to make an extra $100 every day

Nielsen is a company that will pay you for your internet usage. All you have to do is download their app and register your devices. It is noninvasive, will not impact your device’s performance and is 100% secure. Then you get rewarded for using the internet like you do any other day! I currently have it installed on all of my devices and even though I don’t earn $100 from it every day, it is nice for a little extra income.

Once you install their app, you will automatically be entered into their monthly sweepstakes. Nielsen gives away $10,000 every month to their lucky sweepstakes winners!

Make more money by using your internet and playing on your phone with Mistplay. On Mistplay, you can make money by downloading games, playing games and completing offers.

3. Get a second job as a waitress or bartender

28 ways to make an extra $100 every day

Out of the ways to make extra money, this one is for the social of heart. Work for a couple of hours at night after your day job. If you do not have kids, this will be easier for you to swing. If you do have kids, ask your spouse to help out and watch them while you try to make some extra cash.

Bartending and waitressing definitely take a bit more time commitment than some of these other ideas, but they’re totally worth it if you want to plan that dream vacation, pay off your student loans or pay off your mortgage. Waitresses easily make more than $100 a night, and I have known bartenders to make up to $500 a night!

Become an independent contractor for Next Wave Advocacy, LLC, who run grassroots political campaigns on a variety of issues.

HealthyWage is a site where you can take wellness challenges and win up to $10,000 for reaching your goals.

9. Utilize cash back applications

28 ways to make an extra $100 every day

If you are looking for some easy ways to make extra money, you have GOT to try out cash back sites and apps.

If you tend to make large purchases online as I do for my blog’s hosting, for example, I get $10 cashback just by paying my web hosting bill with Rakuten.

Cashback applications are great for anything really, not just online. There are some that use browser extensions to get you cashback while shopping online, some that require you to scan a receipt and some that don’t need anything from you besides linking your card or bank info to get you cashback without any further hassle.

Other sites like Rakuten to help you get the most cash back are as follows:

  • BeFrugal: BeFrugal is very similar to Rakuten and another favorite of mine.
  • Dosh – All the perks of a cash back credit card without having to actually get one! Just link your current cards to the app and get cash back! No receipt scanning, no waiting for the bank to approve your rebate, nothing but instant cash back!
  • Paribus: Get money back when prices drop on the things that you already bought online. Paribus tracks your confirmation emails and watches for price changes so you don’t have to.

Ebay and Amazon have become a popular choice for reselling items online. It has become the ‘norm’ if you will.

My wife sells guitars on Ebay and makes $200 or more on each guitar. She sells about two to four a month, some months even more, which averages out to be an extra $1,000 a month (Update 11/9/2018: She now makes $2,000 extra a month from flipping guitars on Ebay and Reverb).

14. Make money off of strange dollars and coins

28 ways to make an extra $100 every day

You can make extra money from your old coins and dollar bills. If your coins are antiques and before a certain year, they are worth more. Dollar bills all have serial numbers and then there are some with some really strange ones. These dollar bills with strange serial numbers are extremely rare and are hard to come by.

Get out your old dollar bills, or new ones, too, and check them against CoolSerialNumbers.com. The list of their most-wanted serial numbers will tell you if you have one of these bills and you can sell them for a pretty penny.

Flipping sites, or attempting to, is something I have recently gotten into. I use to buy domains and put them up for auction on GoDaddy auctions. I recently came across a site called Flippa that lets you list the domain listing for free and you can keep it there as long as you want without charge. You can put your domain or site up for auction and with a “buy now” price.

28 ways to make an extra $100 every day

TaskRabbit offers same-day help with chores and errands. You can sign up for TaskRabbit either as a ‘tasker’ or a ‘taskee’. As a tasker, you fulfill taskee’s requests. As a taskee, you ask for taskers.

The tasker arrives, completes the job and bills directly in the app to the person who hired them through the app. This means the people using TaskRabbit either needs something done or needs to do something, making it a win-win for everyone involved. This is a great way to spend extra hours in the day by completing simple tasks for others in your local neighborhood — like assembling furniture or doing handy work like plumbing — and getting paid pretty nicely for it. The average hourly rate for assembling furniture is about $26/hour on TaskRabbit.
