Tis The Season: Three Money Saving Tips To Finance Your Holidays

November 21st, 2012 by Lifestyle Staff

If you’re anything like most Americans, you might be wondering if there are any creative ways to get your coins up before Christmas that doesn’t include retail or hospitality work. With the holiday season well underway you might be looking for ways to boost your cash flow over the next few weeks.

According to a consumer survey by BIGinsight, shoppers will spend on average $749.51 on gifts, holiday cards, and decorations this holiday season.  That’s A LOT OF GIFTING!


Check out a few innovative ways to make some extra money before the holidays as well as after. Who knows, maybe you can use the extra income to go back to school, start a business or finally pursue your passion if you’re already prepared for holiday spending!




1. Rent your home.

Going out of town for the holidays?  People are constantly looking for a good deal on vacation homes. To date Airbnb is already in 30,374 cities in 192 countries and they will even have a professional photographer come out to take pictures of your place. You list your house or appartment, set the price per night and see what happens.





2. Share your car.

Make up to $1000 a month by renting your vehicle when you’re not using it. Relay Rides gives owners the luxury of choosing who rents their vehicle, and both renters and vehicle owners are covered by insurance provided by Relay Rides. Renter reps are built by the reviews left by the car owners and with the holidays rolling in and traditional car rental prices at a premium this is a prime opportunity to make extra cash if your car is normally parked.



Check out this video to see how easy it really is….


3. Surf the Web. (No, really!)

Google’s cute, but I’ve never gotten paid by using the site to search the Internet. Switch to a site like SwagBucks that reward points or “bucks” to your account, which can be exchanged for gift cards or actual cash.  Notably, the Store offers many gift cards that can be delivered in an electronic format. These gift cards can then be spent on other vendors (Amazon, iTunes, Paypal, etc.) to receive a wider variety of rewards.


These are just a few ways you can earn some extra cash without much interruption to your already established lifestyle.  So start financing your holiday season now and who knows how much extra change you may have earned by December!

Make More Money By Selling Your iPhone 4 NOW!

October 3rd, 2011 by Tech Staff

Looking to sell your iPhone 4 and spend some of that money towards your new iPhone 5?  SELL NOW!  

According to CNN, beating the potentially millions of folks who will be buying a new iPhone and selling their old one could put more money in your pocket.

While some retailers offer discounts for a trade-in (Radio Shack was offering $100 for some previous models when the iPhone 4 was released), Apple stores and their designated carriers generally don’t give back as much cash, or credit, as an owner might earn outside the store.

But a growing online resell market has emerged to give folks another option.

Between now and Monday, the day before Apple has scheduled an iPhone-related event, one of those sites, Nextworth, is offering $250 for 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4s that are in good shape.

The company, which also has trade-in programs at some retail stores, bills itself as a way to get value out of your aging electronics while keeping the products out of landfills, where they can cause environmental problems. is offering $250 for a 32GB iPhone 4 in “flawless” condition and $169 for one in good condition. Got a busted model? It’ll give you $85 for one even if it won’t turn on or is physically damaged.

Of course, there are always the direct-sale sites like eBay and Craigslist.  (I have a jailbroken iPhone 3GS that I’m willing to sale, but let’s face it, unless it’s an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 – no one is even trying to hear it….lol.)

Although this isn’t technically about fashion or technology, I just couldn’t resist the urge to share this REAL LIFE TREASURE HUNT with you all! is a treasure map. There is a wooden chest buried somewhere within the five boroughs of New York City, and it is filled with $10,000 in U.S. currency. If you want it, you can decode the videos presented on this website. If you find it, it’s all yours.  If you’re confused, you’d better shake it off and start concentrating. We’ve made eight videos. Hidden throughout all of the videos are clues you’ll need to find the location of the “Pirates’ Gold”. The videos will be unlocked one by one, starting August 1st, 2010. This is not a contest. We don’t want your e-mail address. There’s no purchase necessary—no list to sign up for. The sole purpose of this website is to exist only as a map to ten thousand dollars. There is a real buried treasure under New York City. Good hunting, enjoy the videos—and by the way…this is for real.”
