What is Ebates?
Ebates is an awesome site that earns you cashback on your online purchases. You can earn up to 25% cashback on purchases, although it's more typical to earn 2% to 4%. The online store you shop at pays Ebates a fee when you shop, and that fee is shared with you. There is no membership fee and it is completely free to participate. No strings attached!

How Do I Make Money?
Once you have created your account, all you have to do is login through their website, select the retailer you want to shop at and note the percentage of cashback you will earn, and Ebates creates a tracking ticket for your shopping trip. When you make a purchase at that retailer during your session, the percentage amount is credited to your Ebates account, typically within 48 hours. They send out payments every 3 months, and you can choose to have a check mailed to you, or you can have the money deposited into your Paypal account. The amount in your account must be over $5.01, or the money gets rolled into the next pay period. You can also choose to have your cashback money donated to your favorite charity.

Fancy Hands

What is Fancy Hands?
Fancy Hands is a virtual assisting website. You sign up as a virtual assistant ("VA") and take a test to qualify. This is one of my personal favorites, because the tasks involve about 15 to 20 minutes of time, they pay via Dwolla every two weeks, and the money adds up quickly! In October 2013 I made nearly $80 in my spare time. They usually hire in waves, so if they aren't currently accepting new VA applications, keep checking back. It's worth it!

Chat About

What is Chat About?
Chat About is a website where, every time you leave a comment, answer a question, refer your friends, or participate in their online community, you are awarded points. You can cash those points in for a range of prizes, and shipping is free.

How Do I Make Money?
You can convert your points to prizes, giftcards, or cash via Paypal. Beware, some of the prizes are kinda dinky, so I would suggest cashing out your points for cold hard cash or giftcards.

There is a Bonus Points area which acts at lot like Swagbucks, Fusion Cash or Inbox Dollars, in that you can complete special offers to earn more points.
