Happy New Year everyone. It is the start of another new year and as many of us know money is a little bit tighter in January. So here is 5 ways to raise some extra cash in January.
Sell unwanted gifts
Every year we will have those gifts that are completely random and unexpected to just plain unwanted. Although we should never forget that it is the thought that counts in that the person has gotten you something they thought you might like or need. However if like us and you will not want these items cluttering up your home, especially if you are not going to use them then you will want to sell these.
The easiest and most known ways to sell your items is via eBay and Facebook Market Place.
Selling Gift Cards
Gift cards are items that I am sure everyone has at least a couple of sat somewhere in their wallets, purses or drawers at home. After Christmas the number of gift cards in your possession are sure to increase.
If there are any that you don't want then you can actually sell your unwanted cards to places like Zeek that specialise in buying and selling gift cards. And if you use the code 25REDR whilst signing up then you can earn £5 to use.
Matched Betting is a brilliant way in which to make some extra money, however it isn't for everyone.
Matched betting is a risk free betting technique in which to profit from free bets and incentives used by bookmakers to bring in and keep customers.
Getting a Loan
With the financial pressures of January you could consider a quick loan to help ease the burden of the month.
These can be incredibly easy to arrange, with it only taking minutes to fill in an application and that application can be approved within hours, so potentially you could receive the loan by the next day!
This is especially helpful if you have a sudden larger and unexpected financial commitment appear, like having to take your car in for repair or something at home go like boiler or washing machine.
There are plenty of online surveys that can bring in some much needed money.
My favourite online survey site is Prolific Academic, as you will only be able to see the surveys you are eligible for rather than wasting your time being screened out like with some other places.
These surveys are posted by research institutes, universities and other such places for academic reasons. Each will show how much you will be paid and how long it should take as well.
