“But the thing is…your opinions don’t pay my bills.” – #bossbabe™
If that resonates with you, then welcome to the club.
While you may not own your own business (kudos if you do!), adopting a “boss babe” mentality can kick your personal self-development and financial health into high gear.
In the continuous era of “boys will be boys” let’s change the definition of “it’s a girl thing” to one that we can be proud of and more substantial.
We don’t need to wait for someone to save us. Even financially.
So we rounded up all the ways that you boss babes can start earning extra cash on the side. Start investing in yourself now.
1. Boss Babes Drop Their Toxic Relationships
This year I’m dropping all toxic relationships. You know the type.
The kind of relationship that just takes and takes.
My bank included.
Why? You might also be charged on monthly maintenance fees ($10-$12 a month), out-of-network ATM fees ($2.75 per transaction), and overdraft fees ($35 per) too. That’s $329 a year* just on “hidden” fees alone, and if you add in an occasional overdraft
plus ATM fees, it’ll be a lot more! Don’t get sucked into that.
Skip that toxic relationship by using Empower a mobile banking app with no hidden fees whatsoever.
No monthly fees, no minimum balance requirement, no overdraft fees, and no foreign transaction fees. It’s also FDIC-insured up to $250,000.
It’s banking like it should be. So take a few minutes to get set up with Empower and say goodbye to annoying fees, and hello to a better bank!
Bonus: Get Paid for Playing Free Digital Scratch-Offs Anywhere

Instead, play digital scratchers for free on Lucktastic.

Scratched all of them for the day? Don’t worry, there are specific night-time scratchers that are available every night too!

2. Snap a Pic of Your Grocery Receipt. Get Cash Back.
This year is the year that you’re going to cook at home more. You’re pumped to eat healthier and save more money on food. You can do it!
And with more trips to the grocery store, make sure you’re not missing out on free money.
It’s simple. All you have to do is take a picture of your grocery receipt and Ibotta will pay you cash.
So before you go to the store, search for your items in the Ibotta app. After your visit, take a photo of your receipt to get cash back.
Ibotta is free to download and you’ll also get up to $20 in Welcome Bonuses when you sign up!
On average, active Ibotta users get back up $240 a year. What would you do with that extra money?
3. Boss Babes Earn Money Back for Their Totally Necessary Online Purchases
Everyone buys stuff.
Whether you’re a retail therapy or just-the-basics kinda gal, feel good about your purchases because you can earn some useful money back for them, no matter what you buy.
So who’s been around for 20 years and have over 12 million members because they know what they’re doing?
We love this cashback site for its simplicity and for the fact that you get cash back for the things you’re already purchasing – a useful perk for the upcoming holidays for sure. It’s pretty close to getting free money!
In fact, they’re giving our readers a $10 welcome bonus to anyone that signs up to be a member.

4. Boss Babes Grow Their Savings Automatically
You’ll literally forget about saving money (but it’ll still be happening) when you use the Digit app to
do the work for you.
All you have to do is simply connect your bank account and Digit does the rest.
It’s safe. Digit is FDIC-insured up to $250,000 and with 256-bit encryption, which is the same security level as the military!
Every day, Digit will analyze your spending, income and upcoming bills to move the right amount of money from your checking into your Digit savings when you can afford to.
Basically, they know when it’s OK to save and will do all the work!
You can also tell Digit to Save More or Save Less, Pause Saving or set a minimum balance in your checking. When you set savings goals without deadlines, it’ll even project a Smart ETA of when you’ll achieve it.
Bonus! You’ll get a 1% savings bonus every 3 months you’re successfully saving.
People don’t realize they can save so much that it’s been paying for unexpected vacations:
I took an entire trip to Mexico this year with money I didn’t even know I was saving in Digit. Also a very big fan!— Jeva Lange (@Jee_vuh) December 25, 2017
Definitely, the perfect way to trick yourself with good results.
Is there a catch? Digit is free for the first 100 days (plenty of time for you to try it out) and if you dig it, it’s only $2.99 a month.
5. Boss Babes Know How to Self Care – Binge on TV for Extra Money
I can barely cook but I love watching food videos in my spare time. The new season of Chef’s Table? I’m there.
If you become a video junkie to relax in your downtime, become an Inbox Dollarsmember
where you can watch their TV and Videos section that ranges from Trending News, Entertainment, Food, Health, Tech, and even the latest World News to earn some cash. You’ll also get $5 as a sign-up bonus too!
They set it up in playlists though and they’ll tell you how long it takes as it can range from a few minutes to half an hour. Tip: You can set it to Play, open up another browser tab and let the videos run while you continue doing something else if you’re multi-tasking!
Playlists and earning potential can change, but it’s possible to earn up to $200 a month, watching videos!
Bonus: Get Paid To Share Your Opinion Anytime
Your opinion is valuable. So valuable you deserve to earn extra cash for sharing it.
You can do it with Survey Junkie. They pay cash to members who participate in surveys about their shopping habits, cell phone usage, and more. Basic stuff.
Completing a survey earns you 20 to 100 points. Each point is worth one cent, and when you hit 1,000 points (or $10) you can cash out.
- Online gift cards
- Paypal cash
- Bank transfer
Signing up for Survey Junkie it only takes a few minutes and you’ll earn your first 100 ($1 value!) points just by creating an account, filling out an intro questionnaire, and verifying your email address. Easy.
After that, you’re free to dive into surveys. They have surveys with various durations (5 to 20 minutes) to complete and new ones pop up constantly so you’ll never be bored! Fill one out when you’re waiting for someone or have time to kill.
Survey Junkie won’t get you rich quick (no survey sites ever do), but it’s an easy way to make some extra cash by doing nothing other than giving your opinions.
