Life has its rough patches. Whether your car broke down, you’re trying to climb your way out of debt, or you’re simply tired of spending more than you earn each month.
We all have a need for more cash.
The end goal of this challenge is to earn $1,000 in 30 days.
In the first week, you just have to earn $10 a day.
The next week, just $25.
After that, you have to average $50 a day.
How can you go about earning this money?
Four of my favorite options are below.
But here’s 100+ more ways to earn.
Whatever way you choose, just focus one day at a time.
Having paid out over $192 million to its users, Swagbucks is a personal and reader favorite.
There’s dozens of ways to earn money. Including answering surveys, watching entertaining videos, and shopping online.

- Take the Daily Poll, you earn a decent amount of points for 15 seconds of work
- Turn on the Swagbucks TV in the background while you’re doing random online tasks
If you do the daily poll, throw on Swagbucks TV, use the toolbar, and answer surveys–you can make $200 to $300 a month.

eBates lets you earn money for the shopping you’re already doing.
eBates allows you to share a referral fee for making a purchase through their link. So, you get a few extra percent off of your purchases from places like Amazon, Target, eBay, and Nordstrom.
But they also offer one of the most generous referral programs. Currently they’re offering you $50 for referring two friends.
After referring your first two friends, they have a tiered bonus table where you can earn more money.
A good strategy here is to get your close family and friends to all join in. Anyone you refer gets a free $10 for signing, so it’s an easy sell.
By referring your family and friends, then using the shopping portal yourself, you can earn $100 a month.
