6 Surprising Ways People Are Earning an Income Without Leaving the House · The Penny Hoarder

If you needed extra money, like, yesterday, you’ve come to the right spot.

Our team has compiled a list of creative ways you can fatten your bank account this month. Certainly, there’s something here that fits your needs.

Without further delay, here are six ways to pocket some extra cash:

1. Let This App Pay You up to $83 Per Win for Playing Bingo on Your Phone

Lots of us already play games on our phones for fun or just to pass the time. Want to see if you can win money at it?

There’s a free iPhone app called Bingo Cash that lets you play for real money. You could get paid up to $83 per win.

You might be thinking: There’s got to be a catch. This is definitely one of those spammy apps, right?

Wrong. There really isn’t a catch. Sure, you can pay to play in some higher-stakes tournaments, but there’s no pressure. And, in fact, there aren’t even any annoying ads.

The game is based on a classic Bingo format — plus tons of variations on the game. You’ll battle it out against other players at your same skill level. Everyone gets the same board and sees the same Bingo balls, so winning is totally a matter of skill. The top three players in a game can win real money — anywhere from $1 to $83.

Over on the App Store, it has a 4.7-star rating (out of 5).To get started, just download the free app and start playing your first game immediately.

2. Invest in Fine Art (Even if You’re Not a Millionaire)

You might be thinking you need at least a few more zeros in your checking account before you can even start thinking about investing in art. Warhol? Monet? Banksy? Yeah right. You just managed to finally put away $1,000. Those guys are way out of your league, right?

Wrong. You could still get started with what you’ve got. Seriously.

A company called Masterworks is helping us average folk invest in multimillion-dollar works of art — traditionally one of the most lucrative investment options that’s only available to the super rich. But you don’t need hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy a masterpiece outright; with Masterworks, you can buy shares, instead.

Here’s why it’s a good option: Fine art is super valuable, so it can potentially earn you more money than the stock market. Over the long term, the stock market will earn you an average annual return of 7%, but Masterworks lets you invest in art that’s historically seen a 10% to 25% price appreciation.

This is a long-term strategy, so patience pays off here — literally. But once your piece of art sells, you get your cut of the profits.

It takes less than a minute to request an invitation, and you could become a Masterworks member by the end of the day.

3. Get Paid $83 When You Play Solitaire

Lots of us already play Solitaire on our phones for fun or just to pass the time. Want to see if you can win money at it?

There’s a free iPhone app called Solitaire Cash that pays you up to $83 ever time you win a game.

You might be thinking: There’s got to be a catch. This is definitely one of those spammy apps, right?

Over on the App Store, it has over a million downloads and more than 15,000 ratings, averaging 4.7 stars (out of 5).To get started, just download the free app and start playing your first game immediately.

If we told you that you could get paid to watch videos on your computer, you’d probably laugh.

It’s too good to be true, right?

But we’re serious. A website called InboxDollars will pay you to watch short video clips online. One minute you might watch someone bake brownies and the next you might get the latest updates on Kardashian drama.

All you have to do is choose which videos you want to watch and answer a few quick questions about them afterward.

No, InboxDollars won’t replace your full-time job, but it’s something easy you can do while you’re already on the couch tonight wasting time on your phone.

Unlike other sites, InboxDollars pays you in cash — no points or gift cards. It’s already paid its users more than $56 million.

It takes about one minute to sign up, and you’ll immediately get a $5 bonus to get you started.

5. Get Paid to Play Cell Phone Games

Lots of us already play games on our phones for fun or just to pass the time. Want to see if you can win money at it?

There’s a free iPhone app called Bubble Cash that pays you for popping bubbles.

The game is based on a classic bubble-shooter format, and you’ll battle it out against other players within your skill level to see who can clear the board fastest. Everyone gets the same layout, so winning is totally a matter of skill. The top three players who clear their board fastest can win real money — anywhere from $1 to $83.
