10 Ways to make money whilst watching Netflix

If you love nothing more than binge-watching Netflix, then you now have the best excuse when friends (or your other half) ask why you’re watching so much TV.

You’re now earning a living.

Let's be honest, who wouldn’t want to be paid from the comfort of their own sofa?

That’s right; you can get paid a decent wage for watching Netflix, in the luxury of your own home, on your own schedule. How many jobs can offer you money while you’re sat working from your bed?

In fact, these online jobs can be done anytime, and while you are pretty much-doing anything. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection.

Ok, so we all know that the internet is full of work-from-home scams, so to save you the time, here are 10 unique ways to make money while watching Netflix. Some here you’ve probably never even heard of…

These are all ideas that I’ve done before, so I know that they’re real and that you will get paid.

Online surveys

If you’re just starting out, then surveys are a great place to start. They take hardly anytime up at all, can be done while you’re halfway through your Walking Dead marathon and pay per completion.

While it’s true that answering online surveys won’t make you rich, they can make you a nice little side earner, and most will either pay out in cash or Amazon vouchers.

Here are my personal top 10 survey favourite online survey websites, in order:

  1. Prolific Academic – never be screened out of a survey again!
  2. OnePoll
  3. Branded Surveys with a low $10 threshold.
  4. Pinecone
  5. Valued Opinions
  6. Global Test Market
  7. Gift Hunter Club
  8. Viewsbank
  9. Instagc
  10. Swagbucks

This list comes from me using these survey sites. You may found others work better for you based on your on demographics.

Matched betting

Completely legal, and a way to gain some serious cash quite quickly. It works by utilising the free bet offers that bookmakers make to entice a new player in.

The amount of money that people make from matched betting differs and like anything is dependent on a few things. Like how much money are you willing to put into your pot? How much time do you have and if you’re using a company like Profit Accumulator to help you odds match? It’s worth thinking about, as they take a lot of the work out of it, and means you can spend the time making the money instead of working the odds out.

Enter competitions

I love entering competitions, and one of my first ever prizes was a £3,000 holiday. You can take any approach to entering competitions – you could enter competitions where the prize is cash or vouchers, or you could enter anything and everything in the hope that the prizes would be useful to you. Some compers also sell their prizes on. Click here to read my tips and tricks for entering competitions.


Gallerist is the perfect way to make a passive income from all your photos you just don’t use.

The app lets you buy and sell original photos, helping you to earn extra money. Put simply, it allows people to get access to original content, and sellers to make some extra money.

All you do is upload your photos, graphic art or illustrations onto the marketplace and you can set a price or have them sold via an auction.


Even if it stays as just a hobby, you can still make some serious cash from blogging.

Blogging is great, whether you want to write about something you are passionate about or use it as a way to sell your own skills.

The good thing about blogging is that you can do it anywhere at anytime.

The downside? It's not a quick money earner. It takes a while to get up and running, but once it is, it will tick over while you're writing awesome content in front of the TV, and being paid for it!


Instagc is where you can earn Amazon gift cards instantly!

To earn points, you need to watch a range of videos, sign up to trials and search the web for whatever it’s asking for.

Unlike most other sites, you can redeem as soon as you've hit £1, so there’s no real waiting around.

It costs the same per pound to redeem a £1 gift card as it does to redeem a £100 card so cashing out as soon as you reach that £1 limit is the best bet.

Gift vouchers include Amazon, ASDA, ASOS, B&Q, Groupon, iTunes, Rixty, Skype, and Starbucks, in various amounts.

MobileXpression for a £20 Amazon voucher

This is a market research company that ask users to download their software onto their phone or tablet and let it collect data in the background.

MobileXpression pay £20 via an Amazon gift card if you keep the app running for two weeks.

The software tracks your mobile browsing and purchasing behavior and once anonymized, is used to create market reports, materials and other forms of analysis that may be shared with their clients for marketing purposes only.

Flu camp

Ok, so you won’t be watching your own TV for this one, but you can watch someone else’s…

FluCamp tests new treatments on real people within a safe, controlled environment. Whilst medical research isn't for everyone, you can get up to £3000 paid to you for a 14-night stay and use their top of the range facilities including full wifi access and gaming consoles.

Free Daily draws

Entering these free daily draws is really simple. Just register for each draw and input the details required. It’s FREE!

Remember to bookmark the site so you can check back every day to see if you’ve won. It honestly takes about one minute a day to check, and you could win a lot of money!

Slice the Pie

If you like reviewing items then Slice The Pie is for you.

They pay you for reviewing a huge range of things, from music to clothes and accessories.

Sometimes there are special campaigns that pay out more, and these will be emailed to you directly if you fit their criteria.

The payment system is based on your Star Rating. Simply, the better your review the more you earn. Slice the Pie pays via Paypal once you’ve reached $10, which can be quite quick.
