If you lived in or were located in California and called Priority Club® Rewards, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts®, Intercontinental Hotels and Resorts®, Staybridge Suites®, Candlewood Suites® or Hotel Indigo® on a toll-free number and spoke to a representative between March 1, 2011 and July 18, 2012, inclusive, you may be eligible to receive money under a proposed class action settlement.

A proposed $11,700,000 class action settlement has been reached in the lawsuit McCabe, Simpson & Sarabia v. Six Continents Hotels, Inc. The lawsuit claims that Six Continents Hotels, Inc., recorded and monitored telephone calls of persons calling toll-free reservations and customer-service lines while residing or located in California without telling callers that the calls may be recorded and monitored allegedly in violation of California law.

1. Inflatable Housing Bouncers for kids

[Image: 20079121518540A.jpg]

Buy two of these motherfuckers which is what I did. They would cost you about $2,500 or so each depending on size. I rent them out to parties every weekend in the summer. I actually just put one up earlier this morning. I charge $200 bucks per house at a party so that's an extra $400 dollars each Saturday off of these. They are extremely popular with Hispanics.

The downside is that its mostly a summer thing so I don't get calls during the winter here in Chicago.


2. Your own ready to go Taco station at Hispanic parties


It sounds funny and weird, but its one of the easiest and simplest things in the world to do. I learned from a cousin who makes a killing out of this.

Invest in a movable taco stove. It doesn't even have to be that big, just as long as the meat fits.

Something more or less like this:

If its a party of 50, I charge $400 bucks, so about 8 bucks per person. Beforehand I buy the meat, tortillas, oil, and vegetables. After I have bought everything I gain around a $250 dollar profit. If its 100 people I charge 7 dollars per person and gain more profit.

Hispanics love renting a taco guy for their parties.


From both these hustles during the summer, there are times where I take home about $900 on a good day.


In the future I want to expand this a little further, hopefully buy two more of the bouncers and have my little brother help me with putting them up and buy another taco stove and hire a taco guy.


Another thing I was thinking was joining one of those cheesy Mexican bands that play at parties every weekend. I learned to play the trumpet in High School and college and there are many bands that hire guys that know the trumpet or even a mariachi band. Those guys make about $300 dollars each for four hours on a Saturday.

There's money to be made out there, people just have to put in the work.

Are you hispanic yourself? Reason I ask, my girls is Mexican and no way her family would ever hire a white guy to make them tacos. That said we do have our favorite taco truck near my house, the guys al pastor tacos are the best I've ever eaten anywhere. We have hired him to bring his truck out to some large family parties and funny thing he also rents bounce houses.

He was already banned at the time you asked him the question, but I think the answer is, yes, he is Hispanic. I get your point also. I don't think I will be buying pizza any time soon from some anglo guy in the south, midwest, or D.C. area.

The dude is so overbooked that he is running a waiting list on his website: http://foodinmymouth.com/

I respect his hustle.

Anyone making considerable money from Amazon Affiliate Links?

It seems most bloggers put affiliate links throughout their blog whenever a product is mentioned. Any tips?

I've never had a ton of luck with Amazon. I'll drive tens of thousands of clicks a month but am lucky to get 3-4 sales. I dont' do review sites nor do I try to catch buyers right before pulling the trigger, I just mention products in blogs.

To really be successful you need to either do a review site or target longtail keywords people seek right before buying. For example "should I buy a dyson or a shark" or "which shark vacuum should I buy".

Has anybody come up with any fun hustles?

I'm looking at a considerable amount of free time in the near future and am reading up on 30 Days to X blog, it seems pretty legit and there are a number of interesting things that can be done. Learning copywriting and doing freelance stuff seems like something with a relatively low barrier to entry. Writing smut seems like a good idea.

Setting up an airbnb guest room in my apartment seems like a pretty solid move in the short term to make easy rent payments. I don't want to get burned on bad guests though.

For years I did Scrap Metal Recycling (hence the username) as a Side Hustle and it definitely helped supplement my income.
Scrapping was truly one of the most enjoyable, masculine and profitable things I had the pleasuring in taking part of.
I eventually exited the Scrapping game due to more lucrative things coming my way but here are some Pro Tips.

1) Check Craigslist "free" section every day first thing in the morning - be the first one to pick up anything that looks like it will sell to the Scrap yard.
2) Cold Call local Automotive Companies - a lot of these guys have tons of valuable Scrap laying around.
3) Collect old Christmas Lights from all of your Friends, Family and Neighbors.
They will appreciate you clearing them out and you will make great money from the Copper Wire.
4) Clip the ends off any and all scrap cables you find & throw them in a bucket.
The Copper Wire is worth slightly more, with the ends clipped off.
4b) They'll pay you for the Clipped Ends too!
5) If you have free time, strip the insulation off of the Copper Wire so you are selling pure Copper to the Scrap Yards.
They will pay an arm and a leg for it once fully cleaned (stripped & clipped)
6) Make friends with an Electrician who has plenty of extra cabling.
If an electrician gives you free cabling, typically it will be massive and worth possibly thousands of dollars once stripped.
7) A lot of dive bars have extreme amounts of empty Cans laying around, cold call them, ask for the Cans, recycle them at the Scrap Yard.
(this is way faster than going to some bottle return machine, they just pay you based on the weight of the aluminum)

If I lived in a major city, I know I'd be doing some of these delivery jobs.

I know class action lawsuits were mentioned previously. I found one that probably applies to a few of you. It's a lawsuit about robocalls and "free cruises." I've gotten those, but somehow my # wasn't in the database. If your number is in the database you'll get between $300 and $900. I think the earliest you would see cash is May of 2018, but the deadline to sign up is this November. Well worth a quick look and application.

Bump.

I'm really interested in finding some offline hustles or online hustles, which have to do with offline stuff.

I would like to see this thread be active again too.

One thing I came across a few days ago was uShip.com. You submit bids against others to deliver their stuff where they want it to go. Many of the bids are kind of low but if you are already going between point A and point B it could make it worthwhile.

Like right now I saw one where someone wants their barbecue delivered from Arizona to Las Vegas and the lowest bid was $99. I am considering taking a trip from AZ to Las Vegas anyways so $99 would be a nice little bonus.

Yeah, all these delivery companies using independent contractors are interesting. Food delivery mostly, but other stuff as well. I hear Uber Eats is trash pay, but others are better. I'm not that much of a fan, cause I'd like to not pay taxes on such things, but as an independent contractor, at least you have some options to earn tax free money.

The concept of the AirBnB/Uber economy is of course a good option, but imo you need to really understand the platform of these crowdsource things to make the most of it.
