Make that, I’ve found a clever way to pay my student debt while spending as little of my own money as possible. Call me crazy, but there’s nothing I hate more than seeing my hard earned money go towards another student loan payment. So I’ve made it my goal to pay those bad boys off using means other than my money. And that’s without resorting to sugar daddies, Kickstarter campaigns, street solicitations or lottery winnings. Is it a lofty goal? Yes – especially when I graduated from a private school with lots and lots of student loan debt. But it’s a goal worth chasing. Leave it to me to do the impossible. Yes, I am on my way to paying off my student loans without using my own money.
I’m doing every quirky thing I can think of to pay of all that student debt so I won’t have to wear funny shirts like this anymore:I'm on my way to paying off student #debt w/o using my own money! Click To Tweet
So how am I doing it? By doing each of the following tasks.
1.Sign up for Gradible
Gradible has been one of the most lucrative methods I’ve used for paying student loans. It’s a website that allows you to do simple online tasks in exchange for student loan payments. Here’s how it works: You create a FREE account and login to see what tasks are available to you. Tasks include things like posting to Craigslist, filling out surveys, writing reviews, and transcribing videos. Once you complete the tasks to the best of your ability, loancreds will be deposited into your Gradible account. After you’ve accrued 100 loancreds which equals $10 you can apply them to your student loans. (Don’t worry, you won’t be working for weeks before earning a measley $10.) Since signing up last August, I’ve accrued more than $1,000 that has been applied towards Sallie Mae, Chase, Citibank and My Great Lakes. I really feel like I’ve hit the holy grail with Gradible! If that isn’t a great way to pay of my student loans without spending my own money I don’t know what is.
