There's no need to reread the title; it's true! You can make money online right now by surfing the internet on search engines like Bing. For every search, a certain amount is credited into your account by Bing Rewards. You obviously can't make a fortune doing this, but if you're running short of cash for a good meal and a drink, give this a try and make money in Utah.

2. Register for Online Focus Groups

Focus groups are an extremely easy way to make quick money. Most groups will require you to fit certain criteria, depending on the focus, but if you fit the bill, they'll pay you anywhere from $50 to $150 per session. That's a pretty good payday for one or two hours of your time and your opinion. Check out the Find Focus Groups website website to search for focus groups.

3. Rent Your Junk

We get it; this is tough. If you love all of your stuff, renting or selling it goes against everything you believe. But there's this tiny little chance that you may end up enjoying this. If you're into making money with almost no investment, this is a good option. Sign up for an account at Fat Lama, list items that you don't use or need anymore, and wait until someone wants to rent it out.

4. Download Apps

Countless companies talk about how good their apps or websites are, and they're willing to do anything to convince you. This includes paying users to download and review their apps.

If you think it's just a few small companies, you'll be surprised. Companies like Google, Facebook, and such also offer cash for you to download the app, and they keep doing so for as many months as you have apps installed.

Here's some good news- Since Uber's introduction of the instant payout option, you can get paid even faster!
