Ways to Make Money (For Real!)

Free Ways to Make Money:

Ok, so if you are reading this, then you are probably looking for some simple ways to make a little money without getting ripped off, having to buy inventory to sell things, or jump through ten million hoops to make $5. I’ve spent so many hours looking for ways to make a little side money that it’s actually slightly painful to think about….. but moving on. I have found a few ways to make some money that really works. You won’t get rich or be able to quit your job, but you will be able to have some extra spending money here and there, and best of all, you don’t have to spend all the time looking for these ways like I did, because I’m going to tell you about them right here. I’m also not going to lead you on with some long-winded song and dance that ends with me charging money for the information (I have come across those blogs and sites so many times, and it is SO frustrating!) that I found either. All you have to do is read and click on the links!

Ok, here’s the fun part!!


You can make money with Rakuten in multiple ways. I have made quite a bit of money with Rakuten. In fact, my last payout from them was about $120. Here’s how to do it!

1. Click on my link https://www.rakuten.com/r/VJUNGE5? and sign up for a FREE Rakuten account. Rakuten never charges for their accounts and they have thousands of stores online that offer various cashback rates 24/7.

2. Once you sign up, you will receive a referral code of your own that you can pass on to your friends, family, post in public social forums, etc. This is one way to earn money from them. Every time someone clicks on your link and signs up, you have the potential to earn a referral bonus from them. But here’s the catch: The person has to make a qualifying purchase in order for you to get your referral bonus. However, Rakuten sweetens this deal by offering a sign-up bonus! Usually, it is something along the lines of “Sign up and get a free $30 sign up bonus when you spend $30 or more”. So, the person signing up basically gets $30 worth of free stuff just for signing up. (This is the most current offer from Rakuten, as of 10-05-2021)

3. To add even more goodies on top of this, you earn cashback at a ton of different stores with Rakuten, and it starts as soon as you sign up. So that qualifying purchase you make when you sign up (you know, the one you get the money back on?), you can earn cash on (depending on what site you shop on, you can earn up to 25% back!! Some stores run triple cash back deals too, so that’s something to keep an eye out for). So not only do you get free stuff, but you could make $5 or more just on spending that free money!

Also, throughout the year, Rakuten changes their sign-up and referral bonuses. So, you can make anywhere from $20 – $45 per person you refer once they make a qualifying purchase, and it’s pretty easy to get people to make those purchases, because they will get that money back within 3-4 business days. So, pay attention to the sign-on/referral bonuses and to the cashback deals, so when there are some good deals going on, you can share them to people. This is especially good if you are in any social media groups where you can share your referral links, because when there’s a good deal going on, you can share it and people will sign up.

Note: Rakuten pays out quarterly (except for when you make the qualifying purchase and they give your sign-on bonus. They give you that within a few days.), so your earnings will rack up and you can see it in your account. You can also keep track of who has signed up under your link and who has made qualifying purchases, etc. in your account too.

Money-Maker #2 – Cash-App

Cash-App is a big thing right now. People are signing up for it right and left. Apparently you can get a $5 sign-on bonus when you:

1. Use someone’s referral code to sign up (here’s mine: cash.app/$workathomemom3)

2. Connect a debit card or bank account to your cash app

    Note: For people, like me, who are worried about hackers and/or scammers trying to get your information, you can create a free online bank account with Capital One, no deposit necessary, and use that specifically for your online money-making accounts like Rakuten and Cash-App!! This way you don’t worry about anyone getting your regular banking information, and you can safely transfer your money to your regular banking account anytime you want to!)

3. Send your cash-app referral code to your friends, family, social media groups, etc.

** Also, if you send $5 to 3 friends, Cash-app will give you $15. That is their current deal. So, you get back the money you send out, AND you make three people you know happy by giving them $5! **
