4. Rent your Bicycle, Surfboard, RV, and Boat, and make up to $129 a week.

If you own it, you can rent it. With these peer rental services, you post your ride, and potential renters request to borrow it at a specific date and time. They then return the item, and you get paid (the company takes a portion of your earnings). How much you charge depends on your location and your ride, so compare your prices with those locally to ensure you’re competitive.

Spinlister lets you search their database for bikes, surfboards, and snowboards near you. Just contact the lister to request the date and time, confirm, and pay with your credit card to secure your ride.

Boatbound lets you rent out everything from your houseboat, 10-foot sailboat, or 90-foot yacht. Insurance is included in every rental, so you know this service is going to float your boat.

RVshare lets users reach millions of RV renters worldwide. You get to decide who rents your rig, and you set the price and availability.



5. Use a smartphone lock screen app and make up to $360 a year.

How many times do you think you unlock your phone every day? I’m pretty sure I move my finger across my screen at least 50 times to unlock it…and now I get paid for each swipe! All I had to do was download a free app. It’s literally one of the easiest ways to earn we’ve ever seen!

7. Buy with rewards credit cards and make up to $850 a year.

Rewards credit cards offer users benefits like cashback or airline travel points. The key is to pay off those cards monthly and look for the ones charging no annual fees. Last year alone I made $850 by charging anything and everything I could, from car repairs to roofing services. See the best reward credit cards of 2016.

There are even “KickBate” rebate items you can purchase (much like Ibotta); just scan your receipt to receive extra Kicks. Invite friends, and earn even more Kicks when they use the app! Redeem your Kicks for gift cards for Target, Starbucks, Sephora, and many more.
