College student? Earn extra money online for summer fun

When toeing the line between adulthood and remaining in school, it's often difficult for college students on summer break to find temporary work while back at home or also juggling internships. Fortunately for those who weren't able to score a part-time gig at the corner store, that spare time can be put to use taking paid surveys on Opinion Outpost to accrue some extra cash - and the best part is, students don't need to leave the comfort of their own bedrooms to do it!

Save up for a gaming console
In college, the person with a gaming console in his or her dorm room reigns over the entire building - everyone wants to be the console-owner's friend to get a taste of home and fun in the middle of midterms and boring readings. When you earn extra money online, that person could be you if you put in a little time every day on Opinion Outpost, sharing your thoughts with major marketers nationwide. A popular use of this extra cash is exchanging it for an Amazon Gift Card*, which can be used to buy any number of video game consoles and games at massively discounted prices.

If you're looking to get into the latest and greatest gaming options, you can get paid for online surveys in exchange for awesome consoles like the PlayStation 4, the Nintendo Wii, the XBox 360 and more, along with all the best recent game releases. Among those you can pre-order to be all ready for the next school year are "The Last Of Us," "Mario Kart 8" (to play with larger groups of friends) or "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" from the extremely popular series.

Get ahead on next year's school supplies
The Amazon Gift Card* you earn when you make money online can also significantly cut down the costs of books and school supplies for a college student's next year in school. Thousands of students nationwide use the service to purchase hard-to-find books at discounted prices through the website's "Used and New" option, which allows a shopper to buy a book that has already been used by a different student at a very reasonable price.

Once you fill out surveys for money on Opinion Outpost to cover the costs of your thick textbooks, you could potentially use the remainder of your earnings to bring your school supplies up to snuff. A wide variety of office supplies, folders, planners and more can be purchased with your Amazon Gift Card* if you're old-school about taking handwritten notes in class. Contrarily, the website also has an enormous market for affordable laptops and netbooks that are perfect for the college lifestyle. Clumsy students might try getting a smaller machine that is shock-resistant and easily able to bounce back from being dropped in case you get lost in the shuffle of the quad.

If you haven't yet found your summer dream job or are currently working unpaid, have no fear - Opinion Outpost allows you to make money at home online to be used for all things practical and fun.
