We are in a middle of a global pandemic, and everyone is trying to be safe and survive during this tough times. Government, doctors, police, army and health workers are at the frontline trying their best to contain it, and our role here is to be at home, maintain social distancing when it is utmost necessity to go out and help the needy ones in whatever way we can.

While we are playing our part, being at home sucks and it gets really boring doing nothing.
There are lot of things to pass your time, I have mentioned top 10 of them in my previous blogpost.

While watching movies, series, making tiktok videos and playing games really help to pass our time, but it is not much productive.
One of the ways to really make use of this time is to learn a new skill and get yourself ready for the corporate world when everything sorts out. While that is there, it also feels good to earn some extra bucks or coupons online during the leisure time, when instead you will be browsing internet or passing time on social media platforms.

This is also good for the hourly/part timers, who are losing money due to Coronavirus impact.

So as promised, here are 10 different ways to earn money/freebies or coupons online.
I have listed most of those sites that I had already tried and tested, or heard from friends that they are good.

1. Online Surveys
There are lot of websites that pay for taking online surveys. The amount per survey ranges from
    few cents to few hundred dollars too.
    Few of the popular ones are InboxDollars, SavvySurvey, Branded Surveys, Opinion Outpost,
    Pinecone Research, Inspired Opinions, Valued Opinions, Survey Junkie.

    Focus Pointe Global is a great platform to earn a good amount for taking online research studies.

2. Answer questions online
There are lot of platforms which pay money for answering questions online.
    To start with you need to have the right knowledge and some good writing/explaining skills.
    Also for few of them you must have a proper degree to show as a proof of your qualification.

    Just Answer is the most popular of the lot.

    submit receipt as a proof of purchase and you are done. There is a threshold of $20 before you can
    start withdrawing your earnings.

    you scratch a ticket and you can redeem the tokens for various gift cards like amazon, dunkin
