Featured Review

User Interviews Review [2024]: $100 an Hour for Your Opinion? Yes Please!

My latest side hustle experiment is as a User Interviews survey respondent.

(I’m up $105 so far, in exchange for about an hour and a half.)

Latest Reviews

the types of jobs on flexjobs

FlexJobs Review: Is FlexJobs Legit? Read Before Signing Up…

FlexJobs promises to connect remote job seekers with verified, scam-free job listings.

But is it worth paying for?

testerup homepage

Testerup Review: Make Up to $227 to Play Games? What’s the Catch?

Testerup is a legit platform that allows users to test mobile games and earn money.

But while you can make money testing games with this platform, your time may be better spent on other money making apps.

receiptpal review

ReceiptPal Review: How Much Are Your Receipts Worth?

ReceiptPal is one of several receipt-scanning apps that pays you real money for sharing your shopping receipts.

But does the app deliver?

Dedicated ReceiptPal users can earn $10-25 a year. It’s essentially free money — but is it worth the effort?

receipt hog review

Receipt Hog Review: How Much Are Your Receipts Worth?

The free Receipt Hog app pays you for taking pictures of your receipts.

Consistent Receipt Hog users can earn around $25 a year pretty easily. But is it worth it?

coinout review

CoinOut Review: Get $36 for Taking Pics of Your Receipts?

The CoinOut app is a legit way to get paid for your receipts. Consistent app users can earn up to $3 a month, or roughly $36 a year.

But what does CoinOut do with your receipts? Is it worth it?

cashwalk app review

Cashwalk App Review: Get $30 for Tracking Your Steps

Cashwalk is my latest money-making app find. It pays you for tracking your steps, and I earned my first $5 Amazon gift card in about 3 weeks. But the process isn’t completely passive, which might make it not worth your while.

slicethepie review

Slicethepie Review: Legit, Easy Way to Earn Pennies Online

Since 2007, Slicethepie has been paying people to review songs online.

But they don’t pay much.

In this review, we’re breaking down how it works, and whether or not the work is worth it.

kashkick homepage

KashKick Review: A Legit Way to Get Paid to Play Games and Redeem Offers?

Is KashKick legit? 

“Get paid to have fun,” the ads claim. But does the platform deliver?

Here’s what we found: Yes, you can make money with KashKick, but not all their earning options are created equal.

finding field agent jobs

Field Agent App Review: Make $10-20/hr Mystery Shopping and Trying Products

This is my review of the popular Field Agent app.

I’ve heard about the app on various lists of side hustle ideas for years, and was excited to finally put it to the test.

The tl;dr version of what I found is that the app is legit (they do really pay), it’s easy to use, and is actually pretty fun. But don’t expect this to replace your day job!

steady app enter location

Steady App Review: Your Gateway to the Gig Economy

“Find work. Earn money,” the Steady app promises.

Steady is the first tool I’ve seen that attempts to bring all the “gig economy” and flexible work opportunities under one roof.

Yes, that same gig economy that 36% of the US workforce is already a part of. In some ways, we’re becoming a nation of side hustlers and freelancers, and the free Steady app is a gateway to hundreds of potential ways to earn extra money.

loan signing system review

How to Become a Mobile Notary and Make Up to $200 Per Appointment

Is Mark Wills’ Loan Signing System legit? And will it work for you?

If there’s one side hustle that’s generated the most buzz among Side Hustle Nation in the last few years, it would have to be becoming a loan signing agent.

Loan signing agents are mobile Notaries that help facilitate mortgage closings, and can earn $75-200 per appointment. Mark calls this “the best-kept secret in real estate” and is obviously a huge cheerleader for his program.

But does it really work?

caden app

Caden App Review: Earn $150 From Your Data?

Is the Caden app worth an install?

The app promises to pay you for the data you generate on a daily basis. You know, the stuff we give to Big Tech for free!

And Caden really does pay — it took a couple months to earn my first $40 payout.
