There are many reasons people want to work from home: the job market is dismal, gas and commuting costs are too high, or perhaps they have small children or elderly parents in the home that need their care.
The problem with working from home and trying to earn some extra money is that the work at home “opportunities” are fraught with scams. There is, however, a way you can help your personal economy just by sitting in front of your computer and doing the same things you do every day online.
You can receive cash through a PayPal account if you choose, but many people choose not to receive actual money, but opt for virtual compensation, or digital cash, which can be exchanged for gift cards, which of course, can be spent anywhere. So even if you don’t get cash money, you will get money to spend. This comes in handy for any gift giving event; you may not have $25 in cash to buy your niece a new book for her birthday, but you can give her a $25 Amazon gift card that you earned simply by using your computer as you always have.
There are many websites that offer the opportunity to earn compensation in this manner. Registration is simple and free; once you’ve done that, you simply use their browser to surf the web just as you always did.
Most of these sites offer rewards, or digital cash, for everyday activities, such as shopping, taking surveys, browsing, clipping coupons, playing online games, and watching videos. The only difference is that you will initiate your online activity through their site so that you get credit for all of your online activity. You can even get paid for online surveys. Just make sure you are logged in and using the correct browser before you begin anything. An example of a good, legitimate “earn money from home” website is www.swagbucks.com.
Sites like these are an ideal situation for people who spend a lot of time online, but it also works well for occasional browsers. For example, suppose you don’t do much more than order a few books a month, make the occasional hotel reservation, or browse for grocery coupons; you would earn digital cash for those activities, and that virtual compensation adds up a lot faster than you might think. If you are someone who plays online games and Googles everything in addition to other online activities, you could earn a substantial amount of virtual cash. Once you accumulate enough virtual points, you simply exchange them for products or gift cards.
