4 Ways to Make $200+ with Sharing Economy

Looking for ways to make extra money? As more people forgo buying and owning things, in favor or renting or borrowing, there are more opportunities for motivated people to earn money with the booming sharing economy. You could earn $200 or more in your spare time with these popular apps!

Become a Lyft Driver

If you’re at least 21 and have a car that meets Lyft’s requirements you can make up to $35/hr as a Lyft driver! Plus, in certain cities, you could earn bonuses of up to $750 when you sign up and complete 50 rides in the first month!

Bonuses are available in: Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, San Antonio, San Francisco, Portland, Silicon Valley, Washinton D.C., Nashville, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Dallas, Boston, Orange County, and Los Angeles. In order to get the bonus you must enter referral code: CHELSEA47. Want to try Lyft as a passenger? Get $10 off your first ride when you sign up here.

Rent Your House on Airbnb

Do you go out of town a lot? Have a vacation home, a spare room, or even just an air mattress in your living room? You can earn money renting it out to travelers on Airbnb!

On average, a host in Los Angeles renting a private room on Airbnb earns $238/week! Not bad for just renting out an empty room in your house! Sign up by clicking here and you could also earn a $50 bonus after hosting your first guest!

Make Extra Money Driving for Uber

If you’re at least 21 and have a newer car (2000, or 2005 in some cities) then driving for Uber could be one of the best ways to make extra money.

The average Uber driver makes around $19/hr however drivers in some cities report making as much as $30/hr! You could make $200 or more just driving around 10 hours a week in your spare time! Sign up as a driver here.

Rent Your Car on GetAround

You don’t have to be a driver to make money using your car! If your ride spends a lot of time sitting (and whose doesn’t?) you can realistically make $300/month renting it while you’re not using it. Some people even make $1,000+!

Give it a try as a renter first to see how it all works. Sign up using this link and you’ll get $20 of free driving credit, or at least 2 hours of driving time.
