in #a5 years ago

On this page you'll find all the best ways

to make money in your spare time whilst

at university based on our own

experience. We'll keep adding new ways

to this page so go ahead and bookmark

it. And please do share your own ideas in

the comments!

1. No-risk matched betting

Hands down the quickest way to make a lot of

money (well, without breaking the law). Lots of

students have genuinely made £100s from this

technique. It's completely legal, risk free, tax free,

and anyone can do it.

It works by taking advantage of free bets regularly

offered by betting sites through 'matching' them at

a betting exchange. Matched betting eliminates the

risk (you are betting both for and against a certain


This leaves you being able to squeeze out the free

bet, which can be as much as £200! Multiply this by

how many betting sites there are and you can quite

easily come away with a profit of a few hundred


Owen walks you through how to make your first £15

profit (using a real life example) in this gem of a

guide to matched betting . If you know of any better

way to make £30/hr sitting at home, please let us


2. Online surveys

An increasingly popular way for students to make

money is to fill out online surveys in their spare

time. Research companies are always recruiting

new members to answer surveys and test new


For a few minutes of form filling, you can make a

couple of quid which is paid as cash or rewards.

You can bag up to £3 ($5) for some surveys!

A few good ones to try are: Toluna, YouGov , Vivatic,

MySurvey , Crowdology, Valued Opinions, IPSOS,

Global Test Market, The Opinion Panel , Pinecone ,

OnePoll, SurveyBods, PopulusLive, Hiving ,

PanelBase , MintVine , Opinion Outpost , Harris

Poll , Mind Mover , New Vista , iPoll .

Also sign up for Swagbucks which rewards you for

surveys as well as simply surfing the web, watching

videos and playing games.

online surveys !

methods of making money online without really any

effort or change in your behavior.

4. Online market trading

The historically hard-to-break world of investing in

stock markets and currencies has been cracked

wide open. Today there is no need to be a fat cat or

fund the yachts of Wolf of Wall Street style stock

brokers. You can do it all yourself with the help of

online market trading platforms.

Having spent many hours researching this new

opportunity, I've been experimenting with the two

biggest platforms: Plus500 and eToro.com.

Both offer free practice accounts, and Plus500 also

give you a free £20 (without depositing, terms

apply) for their CFD service which is worth taking

up. Overall I prefer eToro with over 4.5 million users

worldwide. It was recently featured in the BBC 2

documentary "Traders: Millions by the Minute" and

the Financial Times.

One of the best things on eToro is the CopyTrader

feature. This lets you literally see, follow and copy

the investments of other top performing traders.

Follow George's complete guide to trading on eToro

to learn more. I think $200 is a good amount to get

the most out of the learning curve by trying out a

few different markets. If nothing else you'll learn a

great deal about various investments and


Disclaimer: CFD trading can be volatile and you can

lose your entire capital, so don't throw your life

savings into it! Trading CFDs may not be suitable for

you. Please ensure you fully understand the risks


5. Start your own website

Interested in generating passive income ? You need

a website. It's THE way to make money while you


Starting a website with Bluehost takes less than 20

minutes , costs hardly anything and can be done by

an 82 year-old . It only takes a bit of plugging on

social media to get your first visitors, and there are

plenty of ways to monetise your site.

Save the Student is just one example of a

successful website, started at university by Owen

Burek in his first year, which has since grown into a

full-time and sizable enterprise.

Read Owen's step-by-step guide on how to start a

website in 20 minutes. It's really one of the best

assets you can have.

6. Review websites & apps for cash

Well it seems like you're pretty nifty with a web

browser, so perhaps it's time to turn pro and browse

websites as a paid and fun job!

Introducing UserTesting.com – a new platform that

pays everyday people to review all kinds of

websites. Each review takes around 20 minutes and

bags you $10 (£6.50) via Paypal.

Simply sign up here , complete a test review and

look forward to receiving websites in your inbox.

7. The 'Disney Vault' secret

To keep demand high across generations, Disney

Studios carefully restrict the supply of some home

release classics. They are locked away in the 'vault'

for 8-10 years before being released for a short

unspecified time.

Buy them in this window at normal retail price and

you can turn a nice profit when they go off sale for

another decade or so.

For example, in 2011 you could buy Beauty and the

Beast on Blu-ray 3D for just £24.99. In just a couple

of years it was on Amazon for a staggering £74.99!

Importantly, not all Disney releases are subject to

the vault and only the true classics will maintain

such demand.

Right now there are just 2 titles out of the vault

which I would recommend snapping up. They are

Bambi Diamond Edition Blu-ray and The Lion King

Diamond Edition Blu-ray .

8. 'Get Paid To' sites

Similar to making money from online surveys, GPT

sites reward you in cash and vouchers for

completing various offers or activities online.
