6 Online Games to Play to Make Money

Are you an unemployed youth who wants to earn money for day-to-day expenses? Have you recently lost your job and need money for upcoming bills? Don’t worry! You just need to play a few games from the comfort of your home. Yes, you read it right! In this blog, I’ll mention six interesting games that can help you to make money. Let’s start!

1. Swagbucks

It started as an online rewards program that gave members rewards for using the Swagbucks search engine. Now the company has transfigured itself into an GPT site.

At Swagbucks, you can earn money for the things that you are already doing online. Obviously playing games is one of the best ways to earn money on this website. Here, you would be presented with the usual word and arcade games.

By playing games, you can (randomly) earn credits that are also known as “Swagbucks”. Here, gaming just represent one of the options. Other money-making alternatives include shopping, taking surveys, referring friends, searching the web, and much more.

You can redeem Swagbucks in the form of Amazon gift cards, coupon codes and several other amazing prizes, or you can also ask them to convert the game credits into cash, which can be transferred to your PayPal account.

2. Exodus3000

Exodus3000 is one of the most popular multiplayer RPG strategy games. Here, you are transported into a future time frame, which is about 1,000 years from now. The game story dictates that the Earth is no longer a sustainable living planet because of a catastrophic event. All inhabitants are tasked to find minerals and “Mars Dollars” (it is also currency of the game) right from their home base.

There are basically three ways to accumulate Mars Dollars: searching ruins, mining volcanoes, and attacking other gamers. Upon reaching a sufficient amount, you can cash it out in the form of real money. This is full of fun and simplicity, but the most significant part of this online game is that it’s easy to reach and receive rewards.

After signing up as a member, you get 5,000 free Mars Dollars as a welcome bonus. The exchange rate is $20 for 300,000 Mars Dollars.

3. Play Rummy

This is one of the most interesting online gaming sites where you can earn a handsome amount of money. It’s also my personal favorite. If you like playing rummy and also want to make money with this interesting game, then you must give it a try.

This online rummy portal is fully owned and operated by Innopark India Pvt Ltd. You can also download its app which is available at Google Play store and iPhone app store. Some other notable features of this safe and secure game are easy payouts and 24/7 support.

4. SecondLife

This is one of the biggest online gaming sites. It’s a rumor that Anshe Chungthe became a millionaire by playing games on this website. This website has more than 2 million active members, with each interfacing with one another using their avatar image (a 3D character).

Real estate trading (buying and selling virtual properties) is commonly played here. Furthermore, you can engage in activities like clothing, creating and selling content, gadgets, and performing at events and rock concerts. There are various other ways including sitting on camping chairs!

5. PaidGamePlayer

It is a contest-based online gaming website. At this website, there are 25+ online games on offer. Here, you can play against other gamers on interesting games such as Zuma, Bejeweled 2 and Family Feud.

The main motive of this game is to fight your way to the winners’ circle. You’ll be compensated with every winning competition. An upgraded member can enjoy more benefits and the winnings become more lucrative. But, you have to pay an amount to get your membership upgraded. If your objective is to make small amounts while playing games, then there is no need to upgrade.

According to the website, $250,000+ in cash and lucrative prizes are given out everyday. Apart from game participation, some other interesting ways to earn money on this website are to take surveys, review games and try different products.

Earning money while playing online games is definitely a win-win situation. The above-mentioned games will not only entertain you but also help you earn a handsome amount of money.

How to Use Credit Cards While Staying Out of Debt

How to Use Credit Cards While Staying Out of Debt

Many people will suggest that the best thing to do with your credit cards during these tough economic times is to cut them up with a pair of scissors. Indeed, if you are already in huge debt, you probably should stop using them and begin a payback strategy immediately. However, if you are not currently in trouble with your credit cards, there are wise ways to use them.

I happen to really love my credit cards so I will share with you my approach to how I use mine without getting into deep financial trouble.

Ever since about 1983 when I got my first Visa card, I continue to charge as many of my purchases as possible on credit. Everything from gas, groceries and monthly payments for services like my cable and home security monitoring are charged on credit. Despite my heavy usage, I have maintained the joy of never paying any interest fees at all on any of my credit cards.

Here are some tips on how best to use your credit cards without falling into the trap of paying those nasty double-digit interest fees.

Do Not Treat Credit Cards as Your Funding Sources

Too many people treat their credit cards as funding sources for major purchases. Do not do this if you want to stay out of trouble. I use my credit cards as convenient financial instruments so I do not have to carry around much cash. In fact, I hate carrying cash, especially coins. When you buy things on credit, the purchases are clean and you will not get annoying coins back as change.

I do not rely on my Visa, MasterCard or American Express to fund any of my purchases, large or small. This brings me to my golden rule when it comes to whether I will pull out any of my credit cards either at a retail or online store.

I never purchase anything with my credit cards if I do not have the actual cash on hand in my bank account.

If I really cannot pay for the item or service with cash that I already have at the bank, then I simply will not make the purchase. Remember, my credit cards are not used as funding sources. They are just convenient alternatives to actual cash in my pocket.

Make Sure to Always Pay Off Balances in Full Each Month

The next very important part of my overall strategy is to make absolutely sure that I pay the balances in full each and every month no matter how large they are. This should never be a problem if the cash has been budgeted for my purchases and secured in the bank. I have always paid my full balances each month ever since my very first credit card and this is why I never pay interest charges.

Using Credit Cards with Rewards

Most of my credit cards are of the “no annual fees” type, including one MasterCard on a separate account I keep at home as a spare in case I lose my wallet or incur any fraudulent charges. However, I do use a main Visa card which does have an annual fee because all purchases on that card reward me with airline frequent flyer points. For me, the annual fee is worth it since I do travel and I get enough points to redeem many free flights.

You have to decide for yourself if you will charge enough purchases on credit each year without paying interest charges to warrant a credit card that rewards you with airline points (or other rewards). In my case, the answer is “yes” but that might not be the case for you.

I occasionally use a MasterCard or American Express card on small purchases just to keep those accounts active. Also, I have been to the odd retailer that accepted only a certain type of credit card, so I find that having one from each major company is quite handy. Aside from my main Visa card which earns the airline points, the rest of my cards are of the “no annual fees” variety.

So this is how I use my credit cards without getting into any financial trouble with them. This strategy is recommended only if you are not in debt, of course. In fact, it is worth keeping in mind once you’re out of debt so that you can keep your credit cards active and treat them responsibly.

What are your credit card usage strategies? Let me know in the comments — I’d love to hear what methods you use.
