Side hustles to make £1000 in a month!

£650 Matched betting

You can actually make much more than this in your first month matched betting.  I made over £740 in my first 40 days matched betting, but it all depends on the free money and bonus offers you do and how quickly you can build your matched betting bank.  I made £300 in my first two weeks and was amazed that it really did work!

Matched betting is not gambling, but a legit way to make cash from home by extracting profit from free bet offers using mathematical calculations.  It’s not complicated though as Profit Accumulator will show you exactly what to do and they have software to find the best bets and tell you exactly how much to bet where and how much profit you’ll make.  You don't need to understand the maths... their software works it all out for you.  I highly recommend them if you want to try matched betting.

£150 Sell your unwanted items

Last year, on average, I made £150 per month selling our unwanted household items, toys and grown out clothes on eBay and Facebook Marketplace.  It’s amazing what you can sell.  I almost took our old Virgin Media box to the local recycling centre as it was too old to return to Virgin for them for reuse, but I luckily checked eBay and saw people were actually buying them!  I got £20 for what I thought was a useless bit of kit!

I’m very minimal, but with kids we are always growing out of toys and clothes in our house.  We’ve cleared out our attic and been ruthless in living a more minimal lifestyle.  Most people have wardrobes full of clothes they don’t really need or wear and attics/garages bursting at the seams with unused items.

Set a challenge to list three items per day from unused items in your attic or closet, on eBay or Facebook Marketplace, and you should easily make £150 or more from these listings.

£50 to £140

20 Cogs was a 'get paid to' website where you have to take part in 20 offers and you can make on average £200.   Their highest pay-out was £700!  I made £126.18 profit and they let me skip two offers as I was already a customer of every option! So I think £140 is a fair amount that you can make.  I was already an existing customer for some of the other offers listed too which meant I couldn’t do all the high paid offers and had to pick some lower ones.

They have now changed to and you only have to take part in 15 offers to cash out!  I made a profit of around £50 on this new site in 2022, but there's the potential to make much more.  You can complete more than 15 offers to earn more and choose the higher value ones if you're not already a user of the sites listed.

£40 Website testing

On average last year, I made £40 per month from website testing with sites like UserTesting.  You can even make much more.  In my best month I made over £100!  I checked them way more often than usual and completed a lot more tests.

There are sometimes a few qualifying questions to see if you are suitable before you start a test and there are usually tests available every day!

Tests tend to take 5-30 minutes to complete and payment takes around 21 days directly to your PayPal account.

£12 Prolific

Again, this is a modest amount and you can make much more.  I complete studies online at Prolific to help academics with their research.  Some are random games or challenges.   They all pay varying amounts and are anything from one minute of your time to one hour.

Last year I made £12 on average each month, but this is pretty low for this site as there’s plenty more to be made!  I often miss tests or pass on them as I’m too busy, so it all depends on your availability when the tests pop up.

Learn more in my dedicated blog post ‘make money at home with Prolific’ and which browser notifier I use to alert me of tests.  Annoyingly they don’t email about every test so you’ll need to install a browser extension to get access to as many of the studies as possible.
