Make Money Every Time Your Phone Rings

This is likely one of the easiest ways I have found to make a little extra money on the side. Imagine the hundreds of phone calls you receive and imagine getting paid for each one. It only takes a few minutes to set up and the best part is that it is FREE.

How it Works
When you sign up, you select a three digit area code of your choice. A list of phone numbers become available. Once chosen, this number becomes your personal number for life, so be sure to choose one you like.

Now that you have a phone number it must be activated by following the steps given on the website. When the phone is activated, you can start making money.

Easy Money
Simply give your new number out to friends, family, coworkers and anyone else. When they call your new number, they hear a ten second advertisement after which they are connected to the phone number that you already own. You can talk as normal and you have already made money.

You have the option of setting up the ads to run every call or fewer. It depends on how often you want people to hear your ads and how much money you want to make. Each call currently earns five cents but the first ten calls earn $1 each. If you profile your friends, make groups, or even share your number you can earn extra cash.

You have the option to choose a ringtone from their selection or upload an mp3 of your choice. This will be heard after the ad is played as you are being contacted at your current phone number. The ads that are played can be optimized to better fit the interests of those who call you.

What are you waiting for?! It is FREE to join, easy to start and money in your wallet. Click here to sign up. Free money with every phone call, who could resist. More on this

UPDATE (2/09): I just cashed out for the first time and will be posting proof of payment soon.

Gas Money

Remember when gas was only a couple dollars? Those days are getting harder and harder to believe they even existed. Saving a few cents is about all you can do. Here are some easy to use tips for saving on that oh so expensive gas.

  1. Tire inflation - Make sure your tires are properly inflated to maximize the efficiency of your vehicle on the road.
  2. Tune up - A well tuned up vehicle will have better moving parts and save on fuel use.
  3. Drive slower - When possible do not exceed 60mph because the drag increases greatly causing more fuel consumption.
  4. Accelerate and brake slowly - Doing either too quickly can cause your car to burn more gas to accommodate your need for speed.
  5. Fill up - Join Sam's club or Costco for membership discounts. Your grocery store may have fuel discounts associated with your purchasing habits too. Search around for low gas prices.
  6. Octane - Buy the lowest octane your auto manual suggests.
The culmination of these tactics will greatly improve your mileage per gallon and save you considerable money in the meantime. Hundreds of dollars a year can remain yours if you follow a few of these basic principles.
