I am by no means an expert FWer or SDer but i have had my share of deals and promos. Compared to most i have made peanuts, but i have probably made around $5k or less from misc CC or banking offers.

Alot of deals including AOR have dropped considerably

Which are the ways you have made $$ in the past or even currently?

I have a job that pays in the 6 figures with a 5 digit bonus and I've made money trading stocks.

I sell stuff that I no longer use.
Also, if there is something good in the trash, throw it in my trunk and sell it at a yard sale. I have made close to 2k selling vacuums, stereos, tvs, furniture and other stuff that people throw away. And that is just within the last year or so.

Buy one of these camera package deals like the T1 canon and a 50mm lens. With the kit lens and the 50 you should be able to book some small gigs to start out with like baby photos, bridal, engagement, birthday. For the the first 10-15, just do the event for free to build your portfolio, post on CL and you will have tons of requests. Once you have a good collection of shots start posting on Facebook, google site, and CL for free. Within a month you should have paying jobs and you can move your way up from that point. Only do it once a week to start off. If you really like it and can take good shots you can progress to more days and higher fees.

Don't you know all the Security Guards get the quarter's out for themselves, after the mall closes Bonk
That's why they are yelling at ya Doh

Seriously though, there was a program on the news recently which showed how people make extra money, from couponing to a family whom goes looking for change in parking lots and other areas. I found the looking for change aspect interesting as it was noted where they did not find change and where they did. The higher the income level areas, the less change found; simple deduction reasoning for that; most higher income people use Debit and/or Credit cards and do not handle "change" as in pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters. The lower and/or middle class income; the more likely to find change on the ground. So they took the reporter to some of their favorite spots to go looking and within moments after getting out of the vehicle the one child found a coin almost immediately and shortly after the reporter did as well. This family IRC made around $1k to $2k per year doing this, picking up change off the streets, parking lots, etc.

I noted this to a friend of mine as I was talking to him where he works, and as we were walking across the parking lot, I said okay there's your dime pick it up laugh out loud it's yours - yep, this would be the type of local that would have change on the ground - people carrying lots of items - change slips from the hands, pockets whatever - and too much stuff to handle to worry about a few cents here or there.

So dollar coins is a fail now since the mint is on to our little games, bitcoins is a waste of time and the lottery idea likely is dead now also and you have to have 300-600k available to play.
