KGB - Just Hired!

*Note: I did not continue past training, I found the training to be too long and intensive for the amount of pay they were offering (.10cents a question), but it still may be a good opportunity for others!
I just passed the test and was hired by KGB this afternoon! KBG is not the Russian Soviet Intelligence but rather the Knowledge Generation Bureau. Like ChaCha, you send a text question to KGBKGB (542542) and receive an answer in minutes.

Visit the KGB website to take the test to see if you have what it takes to be a Knowledge Generation Bureau Special Agent! Let me warn you, it took MANY attempts for me to pass the hiring test, there are a lot of tough questions in there (like Math questions!). Once I complete the training and start making some money I will report back with what I think.

Check out one of KGB's commercials


I have been using Weegy since November as a way to make a little extra money. Like ChaCha, you answer questions for $.20 each. Weegy does not have the kind of traffic that ChaCha has, so don't expect to make the big bucks fast. What is neat about Weegy is that there is an attractive African American 3-D women that speaks what you type to the info seeker. This adds a little something extra to the Weegy experience making it a little more fun. I usually leave the weegy website open in the background as I do other things online. When a message comes in you will hear a ding alerting you that a question is available. You can ask Weegy a question for free or you can pay Weegy to conduct more in depth questions. You can get paid through paypal once you hit $20, this took about a month for me. Go to to ask a question or apply today!

Very Easy Money!
Does not have steady traffic yet, some days you can make good money others days you can't!

A great way to make some extra money on the side is by taking surveys. These will not pay your rent but is great for extra gas or grocery money.

What I enjoy about SurveySpot and Inbox Dollars is that you know how much money each survey is worth(They do NOT use a garbage point system) and they are emailed right to your inbox (No need to keep checking a website!)

Survey Spot

Survey Spot is my favorite survey company, they offer numerous surveys worth between $1-$50 each. I have made about $20 in a month and a half for surveys that I qualified for (based on your demographics) The survey's I took were not terribly long and were actually quite interesting. There is a $5 minimum cashout sent by check. They also send communispace recruitment emails (a community that pays you in paypal/amazon..GREAT GIG to get)

Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars is another easy way to make money that is delieved right to your email inbox (hence the name). You can get paid .50 -2.00 per survey, paid to play games and also paid to read email advertisements they send to you. You can request a check at $30.

I heard about ChaCha months before I decided to apply to be a ChaCha guide. I was skeptical about the company and answering questions for only .10 to .20 cents seemed like more work than it was worth.I decided to give in and give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. ChaCha can bring in a nice little income!

How does ChaCha work?
People Call 800-2ChaCha or text 242242 (chacha) a question and get the answer as a text message in a few minutes. Questions can be anything from weather and driving directions, relationship questions and occasionally the extremely odd such as Do animals get hemorrhoids?(Incase you need to know, 4 legged animals DO NOT). The job is fairly easy and can be fun at times! What is nice about ChaCha is that you can login online to ChaCha's website and work whenever you want. This job is perfect if you have a small child as you do not need to work a set schedule. The only problem is that I would be terribly embarrassed if someone decided to look at my browser history.

Pros: Fun, No Set schedule, Payment options, You always learn something new!
Cons: ChaCha's reoccurring technical problems(can cut into your pay!)

Check ChaCha's website regularly to see if they are hiring. Also text ChaCha a question (242242) to get a better idea of how they work. The service is free, only standard text message fee's apply through your carrier, if you have any!

My first work at home money came from Ebay! Ebay is a great way to make extra money and you can start by selling stuff around your house. I started by selling duplicates I received from my baby shower and then moved onto garage sales and outlet malls. I have made about $1000 since October 2008. Where I find items to sell that works for me:

Your Home
Sell anything around your home that has not been looked at for months. Pre-pregnancy Clothes, toys, baby clothes, even broken digital cameras or printers sell on ebay!

Garage Sales
Research online what sells, Gymboree, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren sell great! I have sold infant Ralph Lauren Jeans I purchased for $1 and resold for $15! Every once in awhile you can get lucky too! I bought old Beatles records for $.10 each and sold for $60! What is nice about garage sales is if you make a mistake and buy something that does not sell you arent losing out on that much money since you only paid .50-$1.

Outlet Malls
Do you live near an outlet mall? Luckily I live in Florida where there are plenty. I have bought Designer purses heavily discounted and have made $50-$100 profit on each one.

Pros: Can be Great extra Money, Bring baby along shopping

Unpredictable income, Ebay & Paypal fees, addicting
