Side hustles – more and more people are getting into them. Unemployment is at the lowest its been in decades, but Americans are still having trouble making ends meet. But having a gig on the side doesn’t have to be hard. The List chattedwith Christine Post of The Penny Hoarder to bring you three options of side hustles, without the hustle.

1. Inbox Dollars

Inbox Dollars is an online rewards club and it’s really cool. You can get cash for doing activities like surfing the web, playing games, or even watching movie previews. And you’ll get a $5 bonus just for signing up. You can do it from your phone or from your computer – whichever is best for you. So watch TV, movie previews, read emails, and take surveys while going about your day.

2. Drop

Next in our list is Drop, the free app to earn cash rewards for money you’re already spending. It’s pretty simple. All you have to do is connect your debit or your credit card to the app and start earning. Drop is partnered with a bunch of big name retailers like Best Buy, Trader Joe’s, Starbucks, Target and more. Once connected, every time you spend money at one of these stores you earn reward points. Once you hit 5000 points, you can exchange those for gift cards and 5000 points typically equals $5. Just make sure to watch out for special deals that can offer up to 50,000 points per purchase.

3. Side Hustles for Bookworms

Finally, we’re calling out to all bookworms! Turns out, you can get paid to write online book reviews. There are plenty of websites out there that will pay you for writing an online book review. Rates vary, but you can get anywhere between $5 and $100. And as a bonus, you get to keep the book!
