Is Infertility Breaking the Bank? 4 Great Ways to Earn Extra Cash!

Share

As infertility treatments remain cost prohibitive for many without substantial insurance coverage, hopeful parents are turning to additional income streams to try and finance the procedures out of pocket. Here are 4 excellent side gigs that can help raise that much needed capital and alleviate a bit of the monetary stress of infertility.

LYFT– “Drive. Earn. It’s that simple.”

Lyft matches drivers with passengers who request rides (and pay for the trip) through a smartphone app. As a driver, you’ll earn money by driving your own car, on your own schedule. If you apply using my referral link (below), you’ll also pocket an extra bonus. (Varies by state: For example, New Jersey referrals can earn up to $1040 Bonus in their first 60 days.) *See site terms for details.

  • Frequent Ride Bonuses & Driver Incentives
  • Tipping Feature Built into the app

    • Metropolitan areas like Philly/New York/San Francisco ($25-$35)

UBER– “Make great money. Set your own schedule”
Uber follows the same structure as Lyft. Per their website, “Make great money. You can drive and earn as much as you want. And, the more you drive, the more you’ll make. Plus, you’ll get paid weekly and your fares get automatically deposited. Set your own schedule. Only drive when it works for you. There’s no office and no boss. That means you’ll always start and stop on your time—because with Uber, you’re in charge. Signing up is easy. Sign up today and you’ll be on the road in no time.”

  • Pays Cash via Direct Deposit
  • Occasional Ride Bonuses & Driver Incentives
  • Earn up to $35 per hour
    • Dependent on your geographic location
    • Suburban areas like South Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania ($18-$25)
    • Metropolitan areas like Philly/New York/San Francisco ($25-$35)
  • Best Hours to drive to guarantee maximum rides with little down time:
    • Monday-Friday: 6:00 am-10:00 am & 3:00 pm-7:00 pm
    • Friday Night: 7:00 pm-1:00 am
    • Saturday: 10:00 am-12:00 pm & 6:00 pm-1:00 am

*A quick side note on LYFT and UBER. I prefer LYFT, as I feel they offer better incentives, and they have the built in tipping feature. However, you can sign up for both and run the apps simultaneously to cut your down time and keep the rides coming. Just don’t forget to switch the other off when you pick up a fare.

MOBEE- “Get paid to shop at the places you love!”

Mobee is a “Crowdsourcing In-Store Data” collection company. Sign up and use is easy. Simply download the Mobee app onto your smartphone, and follow the instructions to sign up. This is a great way to earn a little extra at place you are going already. Or you can zoom around town completing as many missions as you can squeeze into a day to earn a lot more. You can earn hundreds of dollars a month in gift cards. I loved going on my “free Target trips” after earning. Have Fun!

  • Complete Missions at dozens of retailers (i.e.-Best Buy, Target, Lowes, Home Depot, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Guitar Center, grocery stores, restaurants, etc.) that range in time commitment from around 5 minutes to around 30 minutes.
  • Each mission is worth a set number of points ranging from 150-1050 with a conversion rate of a penny a point.
  • In addition to mission base points, bonuses are offered for traveling to certain locations 100-500 points and completing achievements in the app 100-2000 points.
  • In total, if you live in area dense with missions, you can earn the equivalent of around $15/hr. The more often you complete missions, the faster you will get at it.
  • The points can be redeemed in the app for Gift Cards. They are always changing it up and adding new gift cards, but these are some of the staples that seem to always be available.
    • Target
    • Dunkin Donuts
    • Starbucks
    • iTunes
    • eBay
  • Referral Code: RGWH (Use this referral code to receive a 300 points bonus after completing your first mission)
