In case you are new to the Your Loan Depot blog, we don’t pull our punches. We are straight shooters, meaning you can take our words as truth and cash them at the bank. 

Not literally, of course, which probably comes as a disappointment to any of you out there looking to make money extremely quickly. If the bad news is that you can’t literally convert our words into printed money, the good news is very good. Not only is it very good, but it’s two-pronged. First, you can get the emergency cash you are looking for to help tide you over right here at Your Loan Depot, via either a car title loan or a payday loan of some kind. We’ll explain your options in more detail at the end of today’s blog. And second, we are going to continue our theme of providing sound financial advice by offering up a few ideas to help you make money, fast, in 2019! 

That being said, read on if you are interested in either of the two pieces of good news in today’s blog! Your Loan Depot is happy to put our experience, industry knowledge, and blog-writing capacities to good work for you!

Get Money, & Get It Fast

So, you need money. Whether it’s to fix your car, buy groceries, make rent, pay medical bills, or for an investment opportunity you can’t turn down — we aren’t here to judge. We are here to help you figure out how you can get that money you so desperately need. 

Hence, the meat and potatoes of today’s blog will be offering up a few interesting, modern, and somewhat random ways of making fast money. Need to make $100 in a day? No problem, in all likelihood! Let’s dive in!

Take Paid Surveys Online

There are multiple websites that will actually pay you a decent sum of pocket change to take surveys. It’s quite simple; all you have to do is have access to the internet and pass a basic screening. The reason you can make money is because the internet has flipped the entire game on its head when it comes to consumer behavior and being able to understand it. Companies of all kinds want and need to be able to understand how consumers think so that they can create better products/services while tailoring their marketing efforts based on the data that people like you could provide. 

However, you should be aware that it’s a numbers game; if you have the ability to be focused and fly through survey after survey, you could easily make over $100 in a day. Most surveys pay between $.50 and a buck or so, but the good news is that they only take a few minutes to complete. 

If you think you could do well in this line of work, check out a few of the following paid online survey providers: Survey Junkie, SurveyBods, Opinion Outpost, Toluna, InboxPounds, OnePoll, i-Say, New Vista, Prolific, Panel Base, Panel Opinion, The Opinion Panel, YouGov. 

Use Craigslist & Facebook Marketplace

It might not sound like oodles of fun at first, but some people can get really into reselling used tech or other merchandise on online marketplaces, such as Craigslist or Facebook. The fact of the matter is that there is a massive market for used electronics. Some people are looking for functional devices on the cheap, like an old MacBook or computer monitor, while others might be interested in old-time video game consoles and games for the nostalgic element. And, who knows, you might be selling to someone who is also interested in flipping said merchandise! It’s what makes the world go ‘round, folks! 

In a similar vein, we’d recommend selling all kinds of old stuff on Amazon’s marketplace. They make it a simple process to list and sell old devices, computer games, books, and other items. If you happen to be the proud owner of those ridiculously expensive textbooks from college, you can sell them there as well. 


If you are a handy and social individual, you might just fall in love with TaskRabbit, a forum where people look for local help performing a wide range of task types. The beauty of TaskRabbit is that the platform allows people to only choose the tasks they are comfortable accomplishing. Sometimes they are quick and easy, and other times they are projects that could take days or weeks, such as a home redesign! Amazon is also weaving its web into the world of tasks with their platform Amazon Home Services. It’s also worth checking out if you are interested in the premise. 

Get Paid To Go On A Diet

Did you know that some 45 percent of United States residents go on a diet each year? Did you also know that the vast majority of us quit after just a few weeks? Yeah, you probably could have guessed about the second tidbit there, but regardless, what if we told you that you could get paid to lose weight? HealthyWage is an incredible new platform that offers cash prizes for people who complete wellness challenges. 

Here’s how it works: you use the website’s calculator, using your weight, preferred timeline, how much you want to lose, and some other key metrics (age, weight, sex, waist circumference, and others). Then you’ll see how much money you stand to gain if you meet your goal! So, it might not be the fastest way to make a quick buck, but money is money! And losing weight is losing weight. And we are nothing without our health. And…we digress. 


The final suggestion we’ll be providing in today’s blog has been a profession of necessity since the dawn of humankind. People will always need babysitters, but in 2019, you have access to entire networks of parents who are desperate to find a reliable babysitter such as yourself. You can check Craiglist for part-time babysitting gigs, or you can use a specialized platform called Sittercity. You can find everything from part-time or one-off gigs to full-on nanny jobs. There’s a bit more leg-work here, seeing as how you are in the childcare industry, but you should be pleased to learn that the average pay for the babysitting industry is $12. 

Would you rather play with kids or take surveys online all day? The good news is that you don’t necessarily have to choose! Try one or all of the suggestions above and then do more of what you like and what you think you are good at! That’s the beauty of all the incredible access the internet provides us with!
