Anyone have a good online job?

I need some Christmas money I've been looking for a job I could do at home, one that I'm not going to have to invest in though, any suggestions? Thanks!

  • I agree with the other poster...I tried to do an online job but most of what I found didn't pay much or you had to sign people was insane! I ended up with a business(and I love it!) There are 2 ways to get started and with 1 you don't have to pay but then the products cost you more and in turn you make less money. You can check out my website at and see if it could work for you. Good luck!

  • I don't do survey sites. They are VERY time consuming, in which I dont have, AND they don't pay like they should! I am a member of two search the net sites. Mypoints and Swagbucks. I do nothing out of the ordinary but every once in awhile I will get a swagbuck for just searching something. Mypoints you get points every month for so many points.

    After accumilating my points and bucks, I redeem for giftcards to where ever I want.

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, . Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching.

  • I have created a series of work at home articles on eHow.  They contain excellent resources, ideas and information.  Also, I have a Blog about computer jobs sorted into those that pay via Paypal and those that pay utilizing other means.  You can check them all out at my website:

  • I am currently doing a few different things. I just started doing clix-sense it is free to start and easy to do you will not earn much but it is free. And then to earn a little more with it, it is only $10 so it is really reasonable all you have to do is look at adds. take a look at the site
