Jump to section

Making an extra $200 per week may seem like an impossible task, but the truth is there are legitimate ways to start earning money fast. An extra $200 per week would work out to being $800 per month, that's $9,600 per year! This extra income can help you pay down debt, contribute to a savings account, or help you finally plan that dream vacation. The best part, none of them require a lengthy hiring process. So let’s dive into some genuine ways you can add some extra 0’s to your bank account.

Help others with odd-jobs for quick cash

With digital marketplaces like Task Rabbit, Craigslist, Zaarly, and Thumbtack you can make money fast by connecting with local consumers who need help with odd-jobs. Tasks can include anything from furniture assembly, heavy lifting, and carpentry projects, to home cleaning, yard maintenance, and grocery shopping.

Flex your writing skills as a freelancer

Do you have a way with words? If you enjoy writing and editing, freelance writing can be a lucrative and interesting way to make money online. This job alone could make you well over $200 per week! Typically, writers produce articles for publications such as websites, blogs, or traditional print.

Websites such as Fiverr, Upwork, and FlexJobs are great for freelancers just starting up their portfolio.

Transport passengers as a rideshare driver

This gig can be done on your downtime or anytime you need some quick cash. Enjoy the flexible schedule, ability to be your own boss, and freedom to travel to new and exciting places! Many ridesharing apps allow you to start working almost immediately (pending a few basic requirements,) so this is a great way to start earning additional income by the end of the week! The most popular services include Uber and Lyft.

On average, a #ridesharedriver can expect to make up to $15 - $20 per hour. In addition to the standard pay-scale model, there are often opportunities for promotional earnings, helping you boost your hourly wage. AND you also get to keep 100% of your tips - score!!

Ride share earnings mentioned are rare and are far less than that amount once you start subtracting fuel and maintenance and so on. An uber eats delivery can be as low as $2.83. Now factor 8 to 15 minutes to arrive at the restaurant 5 to ten minutes of wait time and then on average 10 to 15 minutes for drop off. Now subtract the cost of fuel. This is very misleading information

The rates above for Uber and Lyft hilariously incorrect. You forgot to factor in fuel, maintenance, wait-time, detailing/washing, vehicle coverage, or even rental payments each week. The promotions on both apps aren't that great, at least not as of now and you hype up tips but passengers rarely tip. If they do, again, it's not much. It's also not worth the disrespect that these passengers bring into your car: food that they drop and you have to clean and pay for, damage to your doors when people swing them open without a second thought, scrapping luggage against the trunk causing scratches from the plastic wheels, and sometimes (not to me) verbal abuse. The realistic pay rate is $7-$12/h, sometimes even lower. You're better off working at McDonald's. You'll also have to put aside 30%(each trip) for taxes if you plan on doing this full time(which isn't worth it).

These are pretty good ideas! Don't leave out plasma donation either. You can make upwards of $60 per visit the first few weeks. You can only go 2x a week, but well worth it.

Thanks for the info. Even tho the rideshare info may.not be true in all cases the info is appreciated nonetheless, no need to be a naysayer for the sake of having something to ridicule unnecessarily.

I hate to say it but I don’t worry about the gas or maintenance or washing car etc. I bring a friend, girlfriend and use their car which gives us time to hang out and talk. I only do a few hours a day then we go eat. Boom $200 in 2 days! So you can have fun, take turns with vehicles and make it not grueling. $100 one day 5-6 hours $100 next days 5-6 hours and then hang out. Plus of course doing my other things.I personally am averaging between $17-$20 an hour give or take. Let’s try to encourage not discourage because I’m sure a lot of people have a lot of that already. Solutions not distractions 😁
