2. Become a Mystery Shopper.

Mystery shoppers perform specific tasks like purchasing a product, asking questions, registering complaints, or behaving in a certain way. Then, they provide detailed reports or feedback about their experiences. In exchange, they get paid a fee and/or reimbursement.

There are a lot of mystery shopping scams out there, so it's important to make sure any mystery shopping company you're applying for is part of the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA). Keep in mind that legitimate mystery shopping firms never ask for money from a shopper; they should be the ones paying you.
The following are just a few of the reputable mystery shopping companies out there:

Then, scan the product bar code and submit a picture of your receipt.

Enjoy sharing your opinions? Although this isn't a full-time work from home job and won't make you a ton of money, online surveys do still add up over time and are easy to do while watching TV, sitting at the hair salon, waiting in the carpool line, or even at the airport. Most companies will pay via check or PayPal, or you can submit for a reward by mail after you've accumulated enough points to cash out. A few reputable survey companies are:

7. Sell your gently used clothing.

If you or a family member has a closet filled with clothing they don't wear, consider packing up a box and selling it online via thredUP.com. Start by ordering a free Clean Out Kit, pack it full of your pre-loved styles, and return it to them for free. ThredUp will inspect your gently used clothing and determine an amount to pay you. Your payout depends on the original price, brand, and category of each item. You can use their Earnings Estimator to see how much others have earned for similar items. Another site that allows you to sell your gently-used clothing is Tradesy. Just list any item from your closet that's in good condition, snap a few photos, propose a price, and use the free shipping kit you'll receive when your item ships. You can print a label and ship it without ever leaving your house! This is such a great way to earn money from home.

Have a knack for photography? If you have a smartphone and often take photos, there’s an app called Foap that allows you to sell your photos for CASH. To get started, download the free Foap app, upload your photos, and make them available for purchase on the Foap Market.
For each photo you sell, you make $5 and you can sell the same photo an unlimited number of times. While this isn't a huge source of income, think about it - if your photo sells 10 times, you'll make $5 each time and will end up with $50 in your pocket for minimal effort. Sweet!

If you thrive off of being creative and enjoy writing, consider coming up with catchy slogans and getting paid! Sometimes companies need new corporate taglines, advertising slogans, and jingles, so they may collect submissions from freelance writers or run contests that anyone can enter. A few sites where you try your hand at slogan-writing are Slogan Slingers or Freelancer.

11. Become a customer service agent and work from home.

One growing work from home job opportunity is to answer inbound customer calls for large companies like 1-800 Flowers, J Crew, or Walgreens. How is this possible? These companies (and many others) outsource their customer service calls to companies that hire U.S.-based virtual agents, such as SYKES Home, ACD Direct, LiveOps, Sutherland Global Services, Arise, Asurion, TeleTech, and many others.
Before considering this type of opportunity, keep in mind that you must have high-speed Internet access, a computer, a landline, and a quiet place to work. You can expect to make an average of $8 to $15 an hour depending on your experience and will work a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week.

14. Evaluate search engine content from home.

Whenever you browse the internet using a search engine (such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.) OR whenever you interact on social media, you may not always get effective and relevant results. That's why real humans are needed to look at the results and judge them for quality, relevance, usefulness, and also for ways to make internet search more exciting for end-users in the U.S.
The best part is, you can get paid anywhere between $12-$15 per hour just for becoming a 'Search Engine Evaluator' or 'Social Media Content Evaluator' for companies such as Lionbridge or Appen. Keep in mind that you will work as an independent contractor, not an employee.

15. Browse the web & play games to earn money from home.

If you spend a lot of time behind your computer anyway, you may consider using Swagbucks to earn a little extra income. Swagbucks is a site where you can earn points for performing basic tasks like browsing the web AND even for playing games, taking surveys, or watching videos. Your SB's can be redeemed for rewards like Amazon, Starbucks, PayPal, or Target gift cards (in $5 increments).
In addition to earning money by doing tasks, you can earn by registering Swagbucks as your primary search engine. Every time you search using the Swagbucks search bar, you'll earn more! Some users report that they can earn between $50-100 a month, so it can definitely add up! UpVoice is another rewards program that works similarly and may be worth exploring.
