Switch to a new bank

Sign up to online voucher sites

Get paid for watching TV

Believe it or not, you can also make money sitting at home and watching TV. Apps like Viggle have made it possible to earn points simply from streaming programmes on platforms such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. You earn points based on the amount of minutes you watch. After collecting a certain amount of points you can convert these into cashback rewards and gift cards to spend at your leisure. It could be the perfect way of making a little extra if you’re an avid TV buff.

Get paid for searching on Google

On top of providing a range of paid surveys, sites like Qmee offer the ability to make money simply by making searches on Google. The Qmee browser extension will occasionally show sponsored ads with your searches. Click on these ads and you’ll make a small amount of money with each click (usually only a few cents). If you use Google for everything, it could be an easy way of making some extra cash.
