Inside the Sharetown Mattress Return Pickup and Resale Side Hustle

For the past couple years, I’ve seen a few people talking about their side hustle picking up “bed in a box” mattresses. They say it’s something you can do part time and the pay is great.

After that, though, the details become more and more scarce.

How does it all work? Where does the money come from? What’s the catch?

prolific review

Prolific Review: How to Make an Easy $200 a Month Participating in Research Studies

Prolific.co is an online research platform that pays you for your opinion and feedback.

It’s a legit and easy way to make money online that pays much better than “micro task” sites like Clickworker and Mechanical Turk.

In fact, one Side Hustle Nation reader reported earning £300 in a couple of months of part-time effort on Prolific.

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.

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

Is KashKick legit?

HealthyWage Review: Get Paid Up to $10,000 to Lose Weight

Have you ever tried to get healthier and lose weight, but lost motivation before reaching your goals?

Perhaps you’ve gone as far as buying a gym membership or expensive exercise equipment only for them go unused after your initial commitment.

But what if you could lose weight and make money doing it? Would that be enough motivation to stick with your exercise and diet regimen?

apex focus group review

Apex Focus Group Review: $750/Week Legit or Scam?

Apex Focus Group is a legit resource to find paid market research studies. But there are enough red flags that it wouldn’t be my first choice in this field.

Still, paid focus groups are a fun and easy way to make extra money. That’s one reason why we’ve been covering them for years on Side Hustle Nation.

upshift worker homepage

Upshift Review: A New Way to Find Flexible Shift Work with Benefits

Upshift is a legit staffing platform that allows users to pick up shift work when it works for their schedule.

That makes it a viable way for side hustlers and gig economy workers to make extra money as time allows.

respondent paid research studies

Respondent.io Review: Can You Really Make $100 An Hour For Your Opinion?

Unlike most online survey companies, Respondent actually pays “real” money for participating in studies.

This isn’t about watching silly videos or completing offers for pennies. What do I mean by real? It’s possible to earn $100 an hour or more.
