Stay Home Mom Jobs To Answer Your Prayer Of The Day

Do you want to stay home with your kiddos but can’t find a job that fits their lifestyle and makes money. Every day thousands of moms are searching for a stay home mom job, not to mention many make it the prayer of the day every day.

Many will try out multi-level marketing jobs only to find disappointment at the end of the day. So many pay to join hyped-up MLM companies with such high hopes of a better way, only to have those hopes dashed all too soon.

Only you know how hard you tried and still couldn’t make enough money to quit your job. Or maybe you are already a stay home mom, and you need to find a way to make money from home.

There are some ways for you to make some quick extra money. I will tell you about some of these that do work. One of them will sustain you and keep food on the table, and some will make extra cash.

I Am Speaking To Moms and Dads

Allow me to tell you about an online home business that has been the answer for many women or stay home dads searching for stay home mom jobs. I know this says “mom,” but some of you dads out there have given up significant parts of your lives to stay home. So I am addressing all parents who have sacrificed to stay home with their children, additionally, those who want to find the perfect home job as well.

Apps To Help Mom’s Make Extra Money

Now with the clarification out of the way, I will give you some information on quick money apps that may be the answer to your prayer of the day. I also will provide you with information on a way to create a full-time business from home.

Point Apps

Point apps gives points that one can redeem for gift cards.


Swagbucks is a great app to earn free gift cards and works well on iPhone or Android. You can get paid to take surveys, shop online, watch videos, search the web, play games, read emails, etc. It’s easy to use, and it’s FREE!

You’ll be able to download the app directly from the iTunes store (or Google Play) and start earning points as soon as you begin the app.

A Swagbuck is worth $1, and over 2 million rewards are available. You can turn your points for gift cards from popular retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Starbucks, Sephora, Macy’s, Kohls, etc.

Panel App

Panel App is great to earn points, and it is compatible with IOS and Android.

You leave this app running in the background of your phone, and it gives you surveys based on where you are.

You can earn up t 33 points per day and purchase an Amazon gift card with your points which is 5000 points. Every little bit of money helps.


Here is another app similar to Swagbucks, also compatible with IOS and Android, but they have a different point system. For every dollar, you get 1 point. They also offer a free gift card when you sign up.

They have over 2 million merchants in their network, so this is a good option for you if you shop online.


A new app that has just come out has a rewards program where you earn points by shopping online. When you reach 5,000 points, you can redeem them for gift cards or PayPal cash.

Cashback App

If you use eBay, then Cashback apps are a must. There are many available. One example is Shoprunner.


Here is a mobile application that allows you to scan barcodes while shopping. If there is something you want to buy that is cheaper than what you paid, you can get a refund.

The more you shop, the more rebate you receive.

Money Apps

With Money apps you can actually make money.

Branded Surveys

Surveys are a great way to make money. Many companies hire people to fill out surveys and give their opinions. These companies usually pay between 10 cents and $5.00 for each survey.

Maybe it doesn’t sound like much, but it adds up if you’re filling them out regularly.

Inbox Dollars

InboxDollars will pay you to complete offers through email. All you have to do is click on the link in the email and answer a few simple questions.

Some offers require no registration and will only ask for your name and email address. Others may ask for your zip code and telephone number.

Once you’ve answered all the questions, Inbox dollars sends you a check via PayPal.

You will get anywhere from 25 cents to $50 per survey.

Apps are a way to make quick, easy money to supplement those tough times or save a buck. But none of these apps and those like them will give you an online business at home. They may not be the answer to your prayer of the day.

A Real Business For A Stay Home Mom

Affiliate Marketing

What exactly is Affiliate Marketing? You promote someone else product or service.

For example, let’s say you love to bake cookies. You could create a website where you sell your baked goods. And instead of selling your own items, you would recommend products that you think your visitors might enjoy.

Now, you don’t need to sell anything yourself. You simply act as a middleman.

When someone buys one of your recommended products, you get a commission.

Affiliate marketing offers many ways to make money because there are literally millions of products you can promote. 

Just set up a website and promote one group of products that interest you, commonly known as a niche.

What Is A Niche

A Niche is a specific topic within which you can market a product.

For example, if you are interested in health and fitness, you could become an affiliate for a weight loss product.

Or, if you are into cooking, you could promote a recipe book.

There are hundreds of niches out there, so you should choose one that interests you.

Where To Learn Affiliate Marketing?

One way to learn affiliate marketing is through online courses designed for beginners. The internet is a vast world of knowledge just waiting for you. But it is so very important to find one that is step-by-step and easy to follow, along with support. 

One suggestion is “The Laura Method,” an online course designed with the beginner in mind to set up a niche website. 

The really cool thing about affiliate marketing is that you own your business; you can work from home and work toward a full-time passive income.


Stay Home Mom Jobs pin

Stay home mom jobs come in all forms. Here I have listed 7 apps to help you bring extra income or save money. These apps may be a good fit for you, but they will not allow you to quit your job and stay home

A warning note about these types of apps: They can be addicting, and one may find themselves buying more than usual just to make an extra buck. 

But, affiliate marketing allows one to create a business that belongs to you and builds into a full-time income from home. You can work around your kiddo’s schedule, such as nap time and family dinner time; in other words, you set your hours.

No experience is required to begin, but you will need a computer, internet access, and a good internet connection.

Find the right training, and away you go to a whole new world of affiliate marketing which may become your dream, not to mention a full-time job.

  1. Hi! I have read about Swagbucks before. And it has been a good review. But as you have stated, it cannot replace our monthly income.

    I’m glad you have mentioned Wealthy Affiliate. It really seems a good way to support our family. And its nice to give it a try, free to join. Affiliate marketing is a legit way to build a business online. And I trust you concerning Wealthy Affiliate’s training being easy to follow.

    • Oh yes, Henry, Wealthy Affiliate is free to check it out. I was shocked when I didn’t have to give a credit card. Honest hard working people to help all of us grow. And the training is the very best in the world of Affiliate Marketing.

  2. Hello, Laura and you are absolutely right, those few things that you listed aren’t going to make anyone a sustainable income if they want to be able to stay home with their kiddos unless their Husband or wife are making enough to sustain the family and all they are looking for is a little extra cash to help with the monthly expenses.

    I have tried some of that kind of stuff, surveys mostly, and I can tell you this.  One will get rejected for more surveys than they will be accepted for.  You practically have to be an expert in every field.  If you ask one pre-survey question the wrong way, you’re out.

    As you have said, the best way is to start a home based online niche business with your own website.  And the best way to learn how to do that is through WA.

    As you have said, I will also say and that is that success will be determined by how much one is will to do.  Everything they need is right there inside WA and all we have to do is follow the training step by step.

    Affiliate Marketing is the best way to go,


    • Wayne, You have summed up this article so well. Thank you. You are absolutely right. Wealthy Affiliate is the best and in my opinion, the only way to go. Affiliate marketing is the here and now and the future of internet business. 

  3. Hey Laura, 

    Quite informative and enlightening an idea to stay home by doing some online money making thing!  I agree the work from home is a great idea for both Mom and Dad who especially want to spend some quality time with kids. I have heard a lot about this trending concept but I am a little apprehensive, if it can really replace my full time job income. Swagbuck, Panel App and Shopkick are something I have not heard about but, my husband has been with Wealthy Affiliate for a while now and I am not sure how much he has succeeded so far. 

    Your recommendations sound too good to believe on Wealthy affiliate. If it is really that good an opportunity, I would also plan to enroll myself. Can I get training from same subscription Laura or shall I need getting enrolled separately ?

    • Kavita, With Wealthy Affiliate you can make as much money as you set your mind to. The sky is the limit. The key is consistency and perseverance. If your husband will allow you to you can set up a website on his platform and go through all of the training. He has the ability to set up 25 websites. 

      At Wealthy Affiliate, it is not about how much they can make off of you. It is all about how successful you can be with the training they offer. 

      I am very excited for you because you are already a member because of your husband. You are on you way my friend. 

  4. I’m not a stay at home mom, but I love online home based jobs. I’d be a sucker for working from home, maybe until I find a job I’m crazy enough about to leave the house for. 

    just, three months ago, I dropped out of a teaching job. And I’ve sworn off away from home jobs since then, so I spent the most part of these three months looking for online home based jobs. Until I came across Wealthy Affiliate, about a month ago. I had issues making a commitment because of all my bad experiences with other similar platforms. 

    But, just a few days ago, I put on some bravery and upgraded to premium. Only to find that wealthy affiliate is everything I dreamed of and more. 

    • I know exactly how you feel. I tried so many things and was scammed by all. When I came across WA I was skeptical. I had to try it out free before I committed. After 5 days I was convinced and have never turned back. 

  5. I just had my second baby and I can completely relate to the desire to stay home with them. I have used so many of those app and some of them have paid enough for some extra spending money for a special occasion but nothing that can replace an income. I found Wealthy Affiliate a while back and I feel like it really is the best tool I have found for creating a substantial income from home. I always like seeing other people are finding success also. 

    • I am so happy to hear you say this because I totally agree with you. A person can absolutely make an income to stay home. And it isn’t like the MLM companies. This platform is all yours to make a website just for you. 

  6. The dream of any mom is to have all the time in the world with her kiddos, at the same time to be able to provide every candy pointed at by them. This article is packed with the easiest way to do just that. The online money making opportunities provided here are real. I am a member of the wealthy affiliate and I know its the best thing that ever happen to me in my quest for online money making ways. Thanks for the other sites and apps mentioned here. All are truly insightful and unique. 

    • Oh, I know! We as moms have it in our souls to be with our babies all the time. We need to make sure they are OK and raised well. You are so right about WA. Moms can make a business and stay home. It really happens. 

  7. Good post and lord knows we can all use some prayers! The first few ideas that you mention will make you money, but nothing to really provide much more than small money over time. This is because there is too much trading time for a little money.

    To make money on the apps you mention, you have to fill out surveys, etc. and this takes up your time. The ‘pay’ they give you really amounts to far less than a minimum wage. I have tried some of the sites like this a long time ago, and unless something has changed, was not to happy with what I was earning.

    Your last suggestion is one that has legs though, in my opinion. I gravitated from the survey sites to MLM (also not happy with these) to discovering Wealthy Affiliate about 4 years ago now. Since that time, when I signed up for the 7-day free trial, and after went premium, I have not looked back.

    It did take some time to get all the things in place so I could start making money, I am not going to sugarcoat things. But I felt back then that I was trading time for a lot more money, and this has been the case. The work that I started all that time ago is still making me money and getting me new traffic years later,

    That is the difference between filling out surveys for a few cents or creating a business that can grow and make you money month after month, and a business that will keep on growing as you develop more content and can start using affiliate marketing tactics.

    So the bottom line for me is that I can definitely relate to all the stay-at-home parents who are looking for ways to turn the bits and pieces of their free time into some extra cash for the household. The Wealthy Affiliate platform will provide the training and tools they need to do just that!

    • Dave, you have said this so well and added so many amazing attributes to the post I have written. Anyone can do affiliate marketing and Wealthy Affiliate has provided the training and way to succeed. 

  8. Thanks for this informative post.  We all want flexible work hours that can give us more time with our family and vacations. Making money from home can also be a form of extra income to settle some bills. Wealthy affiliate and other legit online jobs are too good to be true and people who are lazy or want a quick rich scheme think it is a scam.

    • Oh Mikay, you are so right about that. But anyone who wants to commit to Affiliate Marketing just like they do their other job can make a living with Wealthy Affiliate. Yes, it all takes work but that is what everyone does every day at their job. So well said. 

  9. My wife is pregnant with our first baby. It’s an exciting time, yet she is one that loves to try out new adventures. My wife always envisions the possibility of having a full-time income from working from home.

    When you mentioned that Wealthy Affiliate has a free trial option and that it does not require us to give any credit card information, we felt so much more at ease. The last thing that we need, to have someone scam us out of our savings at this time in our lives.

    Thanks for showing us, the families of the owners of Wealthy Affiliate. They have beautiful families and this is something else that gives us a positive feeling about WA. We are excited to give it a go!

    Thanks for such a helpful article.

    Much Appreciated


    • Kyle and Carson do have a beautiful family. But they are not unique you and all other moms and dads can be at home with their families also. It just takes that leap of faith and determination.
