With Christmas in 66 days I wanted to put together a list of money making opportunities. If you have a little bit of time to dedicate each day, to any of the following sites, you can make enough money to pay for Christmas gifts debt FREE.
This is how we bought our children their X-Box last year and how we plan to fund Christmas gifting this year.
Whether your list is short or small if you start now, by mid December you should have several small checks in you mailbox that will equal up to big savings in December.
My Disclaimer: The following sites and companies are one that I use in some form or fashion. None of the following companies have asked me to market any of the products or services to my readers. Each of the listings has some sort of referral program in which I am a part of. Therefore if you join, I will be awarded point, cash etc.
This however does not cloud my moral judgment regarding sharing information about any of the companies. My goal is to help you find some extra cash for the holidays first and foremost and that it the basis for this post. The fact that I get a bonus or gift card is just an added benefit. If you choose not to use any of my links, I will not get credited for you registering. That is okay. Be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully, as some of the offers do require a referrer to qualify for the bonus.
