Want to make $10 a day? I’ve got you covered.

In today’s world of crazy scammers and information overload, it can be hard to determine the best way to make money online safely.

I have compiled a list of some great (and safe) places to make $10 dollars a day.

Top Ways To Make $10 Per Day

Here are some ways to make $10 fast, many of which you can do in less than 15 minutes.

1. Survey Junkie

Survey Junkie is one of the most popular survey sites. You will earn points for answering surveys. Then, you can cash your points in for cash or gift cards.

Most surveys only take 15 minutes to complete and pay up to $3 per survey.

2. InboxDollars

InboxDollars allows you to earn cash for simple activities like taking surveys, watching videos, and shopping.

These are all things you probably already do, but you would be able to cash in on your activities.

There is also a $5 sign-up bonus!

3. Swagbucks

Swagbucks allows you to complete surveys, and in return, you will earn Swagbucks. These Swagbucks can be redeemed for gift cards to popular retailers or through PayPal in cash.

The amount you earn on Swagbucks may be variable, but it is worth signing up for. A bonus is that if you refer friends, you will earn 10% of their earnings for life.

Swagbucks has a $10 sign-up bonus, which is even better.

4. Get Paid To Do Small Tasks

There are a few different sites that will pay you for doing small tasks.

Here are three of the most popular sites:

  • Clickworker is a company that will pay you to complete small tasks, including creating or correcting text, participating in surveys, or categorizing data.
  • OneSpace is another website that pays you to do tiny tasks that only humans can handle. The pay per task is low, but if you can complete many small tasks in a day, you can reach your goal of making $10 a day.
  • mTurk is a marketplace through Amazon that pays people (like you) to do small tasks that may be tiny but require human intelligence.

5. iWriter

The name says it all: you would write content for various websites. The pay is not great for freelance writing, but you will get paid.

If you move through the ranks, you can earn around 15 dollars per article on iWriter.

6. Start a Blog

Building a blog is a long and difficult process, but the payoff can be huge if you are willing to put in the work upfront.

It is unlikely that you will make $10 a day in your early days, but with time, you may be able to reach (or even surpass) that goal.

It will take a small investment, but blogging has many ways to make money, including affiliate marketing, ads, sponsored posts, and selling products on your site.

7. Freelance Writing

Textbroker is a freelance writing site. You could write as much or as little as you want, but the pay is low for freelance writing.

The company will pay you every week, though, so it could be a great option if you want to make some cash fast.

8. Do Fiverr Gigs

Fiverr is an online platform for freelancers to offer a service. You do not have to have a specific skill, like writing or photography, like other online platforms.

As a seller on Fiverr, you can do just about anything to make 5 dollars fast. One drawback is that you get paid through PayPal (which charges you a fee), and Fiverr also takes a percentage, so you will have to complete more than two gigs a day to reach your goal of $10.

9. Scan Grocery Receipts

Ibotta will pay you to upload your receipts for purchases. You will earn money for buying certain items after you upload your receipt.

This may be the easiest way to earn some extra money, just take a picture of your receipt after you go grocery shopping and see how much you have earned!

10. Rakuten

Rakuten is a website where you can earn cash back on your online purchases. If you already do some shopping online, this can be a great way to keep an extra couple of dollars in your pocket each time you shop.

You may save more than $10 a day depending on how often you shop online.

11. TaskRabbit

TaskRabbit is great if you have some extra time on your hands. You can pick up all kinds of simple tasks for which you will receive cash.

Although this is done through a website, some tasks may require a physical trip outside your house.

12. InstaGC

InstaGC is a website that allows you to make cash to complete small tasks like watching videos and taking surveys.

It may take some time on this platform to determine the best options to make the most money in the least amount of time.

13. Sell Your Old Things

Decluttr is an app that allows you to sell your old things without leaving the house. Simply scan the barcode of your old CDs, DVDs, and other electronics to easily sell them in a day.

Although you may not be able to do this every single day, it can be a great way to help clean out the house and make a little bit of cash.

14. Sell Your Clothes

Poshmark is another app that will help you to sell things and make some cash. Instead of electronics, it allows you to sell nice clothes and other fashionable items in your closet for cash.

Again, this is probably not feasible to do every day, but it can help you make 10 dollars without leaving the house some days.

ThredUp is another place to sell gently used clothes (women’s and children’s). You just have to mail in your old clothes, and then receive cash for those items.

Although you will eventually run out of clothes, this is a great way to clean out your closet and make some cash.

15. Bookscouter

Bookscouter is a great option for selling all of the books taking up space in your home.

It is easy to use and can be a fast way to make cash.

16. Gazelle

Gazelle is a final way to make money by selling things around the house. If you have old smartphones in your home, sell them on Gazelle for a good price.

Even if it is broken, you can still get some money for it, which is better than collecting dust in a drawer somewhere.

17. Test Websites

UserTesting will ask you to test websites. You go to a website and use the provided screen recorder to record your reactions to the site as you work through the prompts.

It’s super easy to do, and you can make 10 dollars per website if it is on your desktop or 15 dollars on your mobile device.

The trick is finding a job. Because this is such a great gig, there are more testers than websites that need testing. So, you may not be able to do this every day, but when you can, it will be a great day.

Analysia is another user testing company that will pay you to test websites. The pay is still $10 a day and easily received over PayPal.

The incentive of signing up with multiple user testing platforms is that you are more likely to get a job that will help you reach your goal of 10 dollars.

18. Become a Virtual Assistant

Fancy Hands is a company that offers virtual assistant skills to a wide range of people and companies. They receive a ton of work, which can be made available to you if you apply to be an assistant.

The rate is set by task; you can work on whichever tasks are available.

19. Search Engine Evaluator

Being a search engine evaluator is a completely virtual job that pays around 12 dollars an hour. You would be evaluating search engine results for their relevance to your searched keywords.

20. Mystery Shopping

Bestmark is a mystery shopping company that sometimes needs shoppers to perform a “phone shop.” That means you would not have to leave the house for this one. If you want to land a shop, then make sure to check the site regularly.

21. eJury

eJury allows you to pretend like you are on an episode of Law and Order and make some extra cash at the same time.

After you sign up, you will review a case and answer questions on a real court case. The pay ranges from $5 to $10 per case, and you will unlikely be able to do this every day.

The number of cases available depends on the county you live in, but even if you live in a county with many court cases, you will likely only be able to do this once a week.

22. Transcribe Me

Transcribe Me is a website that will pay you to transcribe audio files. The pay is $20 per audio hour, so just transcribing 30 minutes of audio would allow you to reach your goal of 10 dollars.

You will have to pass a basic language skills test, but after you start, you can choose how much or little you want to transcribe.

23. Sell Your Photos

Sell your photos on Foap. Chances are you have hundreds if not thousands of pictures on your phone; some are bound to be great pictures you can sell on Foap.

Just download the app and upload a photo, and someone can buy the license for that picture. You will make 5 dollars for every photo you sell.


All of these are great ways to earn extra cash. Some of these websites will be steadier than others. I recommend using a few options to ensure you can always meet (or surpass) your goal of 10 dollars a day.

Although 10 dollars a day may not sound like a lot, that is 3,650 dollars a year (3,660 in a leap year!).

Extra income is never a bad thing! Imagine being able to spend that money on a fantastic year-end treat or using it to supplement your emergency fund. You never know when this extra cash will come in handy.
