There are times when many of us find ourselves in a bind and we need money today, even if it's just a couple of bucks. Fortunately, there are some websites you can use to earn fast cash online. I'm not going to lie to you, many of them are just extra cash online and will never replace your income. Regardless, they can save you in a pinch when you need it most if you use them regularly and allow the money to build up.
Here is a list of sites that just about anyone can use that will pay daily or at least once per week:
Earn Fast Cash Online With Ibotta
Ibotta is an app that pays you back for things you buy at the grocery store. The reason I'm listing it here is because when you cash out, the money goes instantly (or almost instantly) to Paypal. I've never had to wait longer than five minutes to get my money from Ibotta! You can also earn from referrals there, too. However, you must have at least $20 in your account to cash out. Still, cashing out every week isn't unrealistic with consistent use.
Transcribe Me Pays Daily
This is a site where you can sign up to transcribe audio files. They pay new transcribers $20 an audio hour (remember this is quite a bit longer than a regular hour). You can get in with no prior transcription experience, you just have to take a short test which I believe you can retake if you fail it the first time. You only need $1 to cash out, hitting the withdrawal button for payment any time as long as you have $1 earned. It might be one of the best ways to make money fast today if you can pass the skills test.
Amazon MTurk Has $1 Minimum Cash Out
This is another task-based site that makes it possible to earn fast cash online. They have a variety of work to choose from in several different categories. They pay with bank transfer and it can take about two days for money from there to hit your account, but you only need $1 to request a payout. The way to get money in your hands daily from here is to request a payout every day. Then, within a few days, you'll start seeing daily deposits from MTurk to your bank account. Is it easy to make $10 a day on Amazon MTurk? It actually is.
You can get signed up here.
Slice the Pie Pays Twice a Week
Slice the Pie is a site I use quite frequently. All you do is listen to music and rate/review it. You'll get paid anywhere from six to seven cents up to sometimes seventeen cents per song you review just depending on if they have any promos going on. It only takes a few minutes to review a song. They pay out on Tuesdays and Fridays and you must have a minimum of $10 to withdraw your earnings, but this is very possible to do twice per week.
Online Surveys For Money With Pinecone Research
Pinecone is one of the best survey panels out there for earning fast cash, and they pay quickly — usually by the next day — for the surveys you complete. The surveys don't come every week, but it's a nice little bonus when they do because of how fast they pay. Right now Pinecone is open, but there is no guarantee you'll get in just depending on what demographic they need right now.
InstaGC Offers Fast Cash Instantly
InstaGC is a rewards site you can use to redeem instantly for Amazon gift codes (and all kinds of other gift codes). With this site, it's possible to earn money for doing all sorts of things which include short tasks, surveys, watching videos, listening to music, and more. What I love most about this one is that when you do redeem, there is NO waiting. You just ask for your code and it's there waiting for you on the next screen. It's also possible to request a check for a cash payment, but you will have to wait several days for that to show up in the mail.
I have not yet reviewed InstaGC, but Work at Home No Scams has a very detailed review of how it works here.
Qmee Pays Instantly
This is a browser extension you can install that will occasionally show you sponsored advertisements on your sidebar when you search. Each advertisement is worth a few cents or more. If you visit the ad shown, you receive the dollar amount shown in your Qmee virtual “piggy bank”. You can cash this out at anytime, there is no minimum. Also, the money shows up in your Paypal account pretty much instantly after you ask for it. I put this site on this list because even though it's not a big earner, you can get paid quickly.
Quick Rewards Pays Cash Daily
This is a site similar to Swagbucks that does not make you wait on your money! They process payments via Paypal every single day, and there is no minimum to request a cash out. You can get paid with less than a dollar in your account if you want, although I'd recommend letting it build up a little more.
You can earn money with Quick Rewards in all the same ways you can with Swagbucks — surveys, shopping, watching videos, and more. They have been in existence since 2002 and have an excellent reputation as far as making timely payments.
You can read my review of Quick Rewards to learn more about how to use it to earn fast cash.
MobiSave Offers Same Day Pay
This is another cash back shopping app like Ibotta (above). However, with this one you can get paid with Paypal the same day you redeem any offers, no minimum amount! So they'll pay you no matter how much you have. They also guarantee your pay will come within 24 hours. This one has a lot going for it because you can use it at any store, but they may not have quite as many offers available as Ibotta does. This could change as the app becomes more established.
You can read my review of MobiSave to learn more about it and get started.
Swagbucks Pays In Ten Days Or Less
I almost didn't list Swagbucks here because, while it's a great rewards site, they list in their terms that you can't expect for up to 10 days after you cash out. However, it's still an option to earn fast cash because some people report getting paid much faster than this. You can redeem you SB (Swagbucks) for Amazon codes, Paypal cash, and gift cards to popular merchandisers among other things. These points build up quickly thanks the the large number of things you can do on the site to earn. I've used this site and been paid many times.
