Work At Home

Phoebe - March 23

At one time someone was asking if anyone knew of any work at home jobs that were offered... I have been looking around online and ordered some minor online stuff, but they did not pan out... I was just wondering if anyone found anything? thank you

Phoebe, my wife tried that route years ago and the only one she found that either wasn't a scam or didn't live up to what they claimed was envelope stuffing.

toes, I've always heard that envelope stuffing is a scam. But it sounds like your wife had a good experience with it. What does it involve, and how much money did she make doing it? I'm a teacher, and I am looking for some supplemental income during the summer months.

m~, not sure what your situation is so I’m winging this. For her, this was during her 1st marriage in SoCal (manteca or something, for those of you in the area, I’m sure I’d get some emails asking whereabouts in cali). Anyways, between commuting, time she had to be at home, and the pay she would’ve received working at the mall and whatnot, stuffing envelopes was the most profitable. Keep in mind, too, that commuting was a much larger factor out there than pretty much anywhere else in the country. I’ll talk to her tonite and find out more. We discussed it for when she has the baby but it’d involve too much lifting and bending as well as being busy when she’s gonna need to rest while the baby’s napping.

I was just looking for something to do to make a little extra money once school is out at the end of May. I would love to do something like that to make a few extra bucks until August, when school starts back. I would love it if you could ask your wife about it for me. If you don't mind, post back when you get a chance and let me know what you find out. I appreciate it!!

~m~, I'll try to remember to ask her tonite and give you the info tomorrow. BTW, what part of the county are you in?

The armpit of America..... Arkansas! LOL. Just kidding, I'm proud to be a Razorback, and I love the countryside. But the teacher's pay in this state SUCKS! It's a good thing the cost of living is next to nothing. :o)

I am also looking for some type of stay at home job. I am starting to look into medical transcriptionist. Anybody do that and make money?

personally, I was thinking of doing proofreading on the side, just put up a notice or something at the local college and see what that brought in. Sounds workable to me, charge X dollars per page or whatnot and see where that goes. I think with the medical transcriptionist you hafta front them some money and they send you a list of doctors to work for, I was thinking of doing that myself at one point. I could be totally wrong on that one, tho. Also, silly as it sounds, paper routes work well too. My wife did that for awhile out here in the suburbs of chicago, she made it lucrative by being willing to do the routes other folkds hated and got paid double the normal wage. No, she didn't have to deal with gangbangers and fun stuff like that. Her route was in the boonies where you'd have one strip mall then the next would be 20 minutes away.

I haven't tried it, but supposedly, AmeriPlan is BBB approved--check out their site, I think it's www.ameriplan.com . . .

and of course there's always the 976 numbers.....lol

 

More info please - April 4

What's Ameriplan?

It's a company that sells a discount prescription/health benefits plan . . . I don't exactly know how to explain it . . . But you can sell their products from home or you can recruit others to promote their website too and you make money off of people you sell the plan to or people you recruit--like I said, I'm not a member, I've just read up on it b/c I'm looking into starting w/ them myself.

With the letter stuffing thing.... I've heard some are a scam, a few aren't! Be careful! I do know some people that do it and make a little money - I'm not sure how much, but I do know their budget is VERY tight, so it can't be a lot! As far as transcriptionist, it completely depends on what route you take how it works out. From my looking around, the "safest" way to do it would be to get some training, then get hired into the medical records department at a hospital. Lots of hospitals are letting their transcriptionists work from home now. Of course, that completely depends on the area, and California is harder.

gee, no response abt going the 976 route--I hafta be honest, until i got married I was considering doing this rent-a-date thing. sounded ok, but then as a guy it'd be less of a worry for me I think.

 

More info please - April 4

Ok Sort of like that Maternity Card thing that I have seen on this site.
