Other Quick Cash Ideas



Before you start anything you should try the essentials (if you have not tried already)  here are some elemental ideas:


Collect Loose Change

Check your pockets, your closet, kitchen, sofa, bedroom, car... Forgotten cash is the sweetest cash when is rediscovered.


Don’t Overspend and Cut down Your Costs

Someone said “A Dollar Saved Is a Dollar Earned” which is true unless it’s investing dollar. Re-examine your spending habits, see what and where you can cut. For example if you are overweight, try going on a diet, you will save some money on the groceries and loose some weight; Canceling cable subscription never hurt anyone; If you drink or smoke take a detox month off, and save on cigarettes and booze; Your phone doesn't have to be the latest model...


Return Recent Purchases or Gifts

If you bought something that you really don’t need and you still keep the receipt and package or received a gift you don’t like and it’s still unpacked. Try to return them, there is a good chance you will get the money at retail worth.

The Basics

Probably one of the easiest and quickest ways to get fast cash is to sell stuff that you rarely use or it’s just sitting around biting dust, why not turning it into money. Here are some methods:


Use Classifieds like Craigslist

Depending on your area there is a good chance to receive tons of calls for your item which you can sell immediately for cash.


Put on a Garage Sale

This really varies on your neighborhood, weather and period the garage sale is taking place. Nevertheless it’s an excellent way to make quick cash without leaving your home.


Sell on Flea Markets

In essence it’s the same like garage sales with potentially much more customers. The downside of this is that you will need to transport your stuff there and you need to rent or barter space to exhibit.


Sell Your Gold or Jewelry

Gold is gold and it will always be valuable, and you can exchange your gold for cash without any problems. The only tip we have about selling gold, is not to go immediately into pawn shop or stores with the big ”WE BUY GOLD” signs. Instead go into any decent looking jewelry store, as there is a good chance you will get the most bucks for your goldsworth.


Sell Your Unused Gift Cards

If you look around you probably have tons of these in your home, you can sell them immediately (not for full value) on places like cardCash.com


Visit the Pawn Shop

Definitely the last place to resort, because you will not get the retail price, but cash is guaranteed.


Other Methods to Sell for Cash (but May Need to Wait Few Days)

You can sell your stuff on tons of other places, but you may need to wait few days (weeks) for the cash. If this is not an issue and can wait that much we strongly recommend trying out eBay, Consignment stores (large items and furniture), etc...

Sit

All you need to do is to place a classified on craigslist or local newspaper.


Freelancing

Become a Rideshare Driver

If you have car, drivers’ licence and a clean record, you can make quick money by driving others around. Beside earning quick cash, you can set your own hours which is very convenient for those with full time day jobs. Just make sure you check your insurance policy first, as some policies prohibit this activity and might not cover you in case of accident.


Volunteer for Overtime

Working overtime especially during holidays pays really good. Just inform your boss, that your budget is tight and you are at his disposal to work overtime.

Part-Time Job
