Quick Ways To Make Extra Money

Over the past few years, the gig economy has exploded due to apps that act as intermediaries between workers and clients that make it easy to take on a side hustle and work as much as you want, whether that's a few hours on the weekend or an extra $1000 a month.

Here are the top 10 quick ways to make extra money right now. While everyone has varied skills and interests, there are enough different opportunities that I'm sure you can find a good fit.

Driving for Uber or Lyft is probably the most famous gig worker job, but for a good reason. That was one of the first platforms to seamlessly launch an app connecting drivers and riders.

Driving Gig

You can earn around $15-20 per hour as an Uber/Lyft driver. There is also the potential to earn more during peak hours or special events. If you want to get up and run to and make $20 right now, it's hard to find a better way than Uber.

How Much Can You Make?

If driving people around isn't your thing, how about delivering food or packages? There is no shortage of apps that cater to delivery services. Some examples include DoorDash, Postmates, UberEats, Amazon Flex, Instacart, and Grubhub.

Delivery Gigs

Earnings for delivery gig workers are similar to other driving gigs. You can make around $13-20 per hour, depending on the city you're in and the efficiency of your deliveries.

How Much Can You Make?

While you won't make much money with survey apps, it is a straightforward gig to start, and you can spend as much or as little time on it as you want.

Survey Apps

With most “get-paid-to” apps, you'll be doing good to make $5 an hour or so. It's not life-changing money, but it is something you can do while watching Netflix on the couch.
