Want to make an extra £100 this month? Here are some ideas for a quick cash injection. How much you earn is completely down to the time and effort put in, but by doing some of these you can easily earn £100 in a month.
Surveys can be slow burners and while there are many I personally use, some are better than others.
If you want to get your hands on quick money, CitizenMe pays instantly to your paypal, Qmee you can cash out straight away and Curious Cat you only need 100 points (£1) to cash out. However, these surveys tend to be small money.
The best survey site out there has to be Prolific. I would estimate that I earn around £30-60 a month from them, depending on how often I check for surveys.
For the complete list of surveys I use, check out this post: Survey Sites – The Ultimate Guide
Ohmydosh! is a’get paid to’ website that pays you for completing various offers and taking out free trials etc.
You only need £10 to cash out, which you can earn fairly quickly and you’ll usually see the money in your account within a few days. Some offers take longer to track than others, so make sure you read the terms of each offer properly (and remember to cancel any free trials before they become payable!)

You won’t get a huge amount of money, but if you have lots of DVDs lying around that you no longer watch it might be worth scanning them into trade-in websites.
They usually pay quite quickly and provide you with a free postage label to send your items in.
It won’t make you rich – but it’ll clear some space in your home and add a few more ££ to your bank account.
If you are already intending to spend the money, why not see if you can get some cashback for it?
Websites like Topcashback and Quidco are great for shopping online, and apps such as Shopmium, Checkoutsmart and Greenjinn will pay cashback for certain products when you upload a receipt.
Following on from the above, did you know you could earn money by scanning your receipts? Just take a picture of a receipt and upload it to apps like Shoppix (use referral code:A5Y0SQZ1 and we will both receive 200 points) and Receipt Hog to earn points, which you can convert to cash.
This can be a slow burner, but it’s money for nothing.
The average home apparently has £3000 worth of unwanted items. Turn that clutter into cash!
Facebook is great for selling bundles, large items and furniture as people collect from you so you don’t have to faff around with postage (there’s also no fees).
Ebay is great for selling everything else! Yes, the fees can sting a little but you’re opening your item for sale to a much bigger market so have a higher chance of selling.
Matched betting is my most profitable side hustle and the one I get most questions about. If you are a complete newbie I would strongly suggest doing a lot of reading and research beforehand.
There are hundreds of pounds to be made from new customer sign up offers. I highly recommend joining Oddsmonkey* – it is the subscription we personally use and is full of offers, guides, tools and calculators.
The subscription costs £17.99 a month, but you more than cover that cost with the profit you will make. You’ll easily make an extra £100 from matched betting alone.
Unfortunately there aren’t that many opportunities near me as I live in a small town, but if you’re near a larger town/city there’s plenty of money to be made from BeMyEye Missions.
I hope you have found this post helpful. These are just a few ideas to get you going but once you have hustled your first £100 you will get the bug – trust me!
