I have tried many and I do mean many things to make extra money in order to try to pay off my debt.  So far non of them have worked.

On line survey sites

I have join A LOT of on line survey sites, my e-mail had 3000 e-mail's right now from then all.  I did make some money from doing surveys, but it is real time consuming and you are working for pennies an hour.  The site I liked the most was mypoints, you read e-mail, take surveys, surf the web and even shop you earn points then cash out for gift cards.  I liked doing this then using the gift cards for Christmas gifts.  I made a blog Paying survey sites for free with all the survey sites I have found liste on it because to many company's charge you for this information and I want to make it available for free.  Take a look at the list it's long although taking surveys are not for me anymore they might be for you.

On line jobs

I have tried to fine a job on line doing stuff at home after I get off my day job, in order to help pay off debt.  And just about everything I came across they wanted to charge me.  I am sorry but if I am working for someone way do I need to pay them, this just don't make good sense to me.  Some of the jobs I found did seem legit I sent in app's took on line test and well I didn't pass so that didn't work out to well for me.  The only way you can find a good job on line is if you know how to design web sites, computer programming, medical transcription, if you are a good writer or if you know a lot about Microsoft excel and Microsoft's other programs.

Blogging to pay off debt

I have also done the blogging thing for awhile now, and well I have had not much luck at it either but here I am again starting another one.  Oh well you know what they say if at first you don't succeed try try try again.  I have seen a lot of stories where people say that they make a living off of blogging I should would like to know how they do it.

Selling stuff on ebay

This is what I am trying now,  I have not been doing it for long so I have not really made any money at it either.  I did sale 3 things last week and I was so excited I about peed on myself lol.  The thing with ebay is that there is a lot of people selling the same thing you are so you want to price it lower than them.  Plus you have to build a seller's reputation, because people buy faster from others that have been doing it for awhile and thats going to be hard for me to do.  But ebay is another thing I have seen a lot of people say that they make a living of if.  Again I wish they would tell me their secret.

Part time job to pay off debt

I have but in a view application's for a second job but have had not calls.  I have been at my job for over 23 years and I just don't think people want to hire someone that has a permanent job because they know they will come second.  Plus If I got a part time job that would take be away from my family and I don't think that would be far to them.  I would never be home to help with the home work cleaning the house plus where would I find the time to pay those bills I am trying to pay off ha ha.

So tell me what have you done or tried to do to make some extra money in order to pay off your credit card debt?



  1. I usually get turned down on surveys because I work at a newspaper. The fact that I am in advertising and not news doesn't seem to matter.

  2. Hi Raymond,

    I got turned down on survey's all the time, the bad thing with that is you have to take a survey to find out if you qualify for the paying survey and that
