Need some extra money? There are several simple ways to make money online, including ideas we shared in December. If you have a little bit of time on your hands, here are some more easy ways you can get money online.

1. Check if You Have Unclaimed Property

The Utah Office of State Treasurer receives more than $50 million in lost money that belongs to Utahns every year. State Treasurer Marlo Oaks wants to reunite that money with its rightful owners. When a business owes money to an individual, business, or charity it cannot find, it remits those funds to the state after three years. There are a lot of ways to lose track of money. You might move and forget you had a deposit with a utility company, overpay a medical bill, or be the beneficiary of a life insurance policy you didn’t know existed. Try searching mycash.utah.gov to see if you, your friends, or your family members have money ready to be claimed.

2. Sell your Stuff

There are several ways to sell items you no longer need online. eBay is one of the more well-known e-commerce platforms, but there are countless other options. Join an online yard sale group on social media, or search e-commerce platforms to find a more specialized website. If you are creative and entrepreneurial, platforms like Etsy   allow you to create online stores to sell your handmade arts and crafts or even vintage collectibles.

3. Invest in the Stock Market

These days, it’s easier than ever to invest in the stock market and your future. Apps like Robinhood, Acorns and Stash  offer you the ability to trade fractionally, which means you can buy fractions of a share of stock. 529 plans are state-sponsored investment portfolios that enable you to save money for educational expenses. You can withdraw funds tax-free to cover nearly any type of higher education expense. my529 is a 529 plan established and sponsored by the State of Utah that offers state and federal tax benefits. For longer-term savings goals, companies like Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, Vanguard, E-Trade, and Charles Schwab can help establish an account to  hold your investments. Investing can be an important way to build your wealth and may allow your money to outpace inflation. Remember that stocks can be volatile so be prepared for market fluctuations and don’t panic. Regularly investing can be an important strategy to average the cost of your investment holdings.

4. Test Websites as a Way to Get Money Online

Testing sites like UserTesting.com are another option to bring in some extra cash. You can get paid for sharing your opinion about how websites and apps work. To try it out, all you have to do is pass a short test to be accepted. Once you start testing, you can receive $10 for each 20-minute test you take. These typically involve making a recording and answering a few written questions too. You can even earn up to $120 to have a video chat with a customer after you take the tests. It’s a pretty simple concept.
