When you have a bank account and receive a check, it's easy. You open up the app and snap some photos. If your bank doesn't have an app, you take it to the branch and hand it to a teller or use the ATM. What if you're one of the many millions of people who are “unbanked” – without a bank account? The answer is trickier. Here are the ways you cash ...

I'm a big fan of dividend investing. I took advantage of cheaper stock prices during the last economic recession and stumbled my way into a sizable dividend portfolio. Now that we're nearly a decade away from my initial acquisitions and the markets have surged back, I'm sitting on big gains and a healthy cash flow. Today, our annual dividends exceed the annual salary I was paid in my first “real” job. I ...

There are a ton of paid survey sites out there. Many of them look like they were made in 1990 and shady as all get out. How do you know if a company is legitimate or a scam? How do avoid the ones that keep asking you qualification questions, that look like survey questions, and DQ you? It's hard. You have to dig a little deeper and here at Wallet Hacks, we ...

We all probably have electronics laying around our house that are either super outdated or completely broken and therefore, useless. Though it may be fun to occasionally dig them out and reminisce over the good times, the truth is you could be making money (back) from your junk. If you find yourself needing a little extra money or in the spring cleaning mood, make sure to consider the following options ...

My first online savings account was with a little-known Dutch bank making its foray into the United States. They were orange, not a typical banking color (most prefer blues and greens here), had an acronym for their name (or was it just the name?), and people were still skeptical about online banking. I.N.G.? Ing? For a while, no one knew! I loved them. ING (which is actually an acronym for Internationale Nederlanden ...

I love buying gas from Costco. I love Costco gas mostly because it's insanely cheap. Like 20-25 cents cheaper than my local gas station, which is arguably somewhat pricier than average because it's in a weird location and super convenient for people who live near the weird location. I try to go when the warehouse isn't open, so the lines are not as crazy. Sometimes I go and it's no wait for ...

Reduce, reuse, recycle… get paid? Yep. We recycle a lot in our home. We recycle because it's a good thing to do but it also reduces the number of trash bags. Trash smells so the fewer the better! But did you know the stuff you're leaving in your blue bin could be worth cash? (we don't count states where you have to pay a deposit on bottles and cans, this isn't a post about ...
