Jobs for 15 year olds are very hard to find because most companies won’t hire people that young. It doesn’t seem fair but in most cases, you need to be at least 16 years old to get a job. Many businesses feel that anyone 15 and younger is too young and they don’t want to deal with “kids”. So, 15 year olds are often left with babysitting, mowing lawns, gardening, painting and any other odd job they can find around the neighborhood. As an alternative you can try:

This is NOT A JOB but you can try CashCrate for a free and fun way to make extra $$. Here is a video of my latest check and a picture below of another check I have gotten.

If you are 15 or 16 and looking for ways to make some extra cash, then you can start to do that from your room! CashCrate is a FREE survey site that you can join and start making money and you will never have to spend any money doing it and you DO NOT NEED A CREDIT CARD. I started at Cash Crate over 7 years ago and now I make between $100 and $300 EVERY MONTH.

CashCrate Check


December 2012 payment from CashCrate – $254.27

CashCrate is a great site and real easy to navigate and earn extra money. It is not really a jobs for 16 year olds but it is a tested real way for anyone 13 years and older to earn extra money. You do not need a credit card and they will send you a real paper check every month just like I got in the video.

When you sign up to CashCrate you should start out by doing all offers that say “Register for free” as those are real quick. You should also make sure you clear your computer’s cookies before each one to make sure you get credit. Then move on to all the free surveys and everything else that says “100% free”. Of course you don’t own a credit card so you can’t do any offers that require one but you don’t ever need to do any credit card offers (I never have).

You can also make even more money by referring your friends and then you and they will be making money together. If you start making referrals you will see that you can make more and more money as you will get a percentage of what your referrals make! Note: you can’t advertise on MySpace or FaceBook.

CashCrate is not a jobs for 15 and 16 year olds but is is a good online website that you can go to in your spare time during winter or summer to make extra cash. Learning different money making ideas you can do in your free time is sick and once you start making money with this free paid survey site you definitely will want to tell all your friends!

  14. Ryan  4:05 pm

    Hey I got a question for Money Making Ideas…You make $400-500 a month how many hours do you spend a month filling out these surveys? And are surveys all you do or please explain what yoU do on cash crate to earn sooo much. Thanks for your help in advance.

  15. Money Making Ideas  4:37 pm

    I do surveys, offers, and refer people too.

  16. Autumn  5:47 pm

    When your actually doing the surveys do you have to put in your real information? Not when your signing up for CashCrate. I know you need to put your real address in then, because I don’t want to put my address in every time a survey tells me to. Will I still get my money or not?

  17. Money Making Ideas  1:35 pm

    You always have to use real information otherwise it is considered fraud and your account will be cancelled and you will not get paid.

  18. estrella  11:11 pm

    hi my name is estrella am student am 15 my birthday is 10/18/93 am on da 10 grade am a person smart and i need a job i got problems with my family there no jobs and i want to help them.

  19. Cait  3:36 am

    No offense, but you make it seem like $480 is a lot of money, while it really isn’t.
    I take care of my elderly neighbors and cook their meals for them everyday, work at six flags three days a week, and just ask around for random odd jobs, and I make about $300 a WEEK. It’s not even hard work. People are just afraid to work. I’m a girl, and I’m only 15, and trust me I HATE sweating and getting physical, and what I do is no hard work at all.
    If you have anyone in your neighborhood that needs assistance, just knock on their door and ask! I can’t make any promises but they’ll probably want your help!

    Also I used to work at Mc.Donald’s, and I was actually asked to apply at six flags by a customer!
    Just be pleasant and cheerful wherever you go because you never know!

  20. Money Making Ideas  11:36 pm

    CashCrate is NOT A JOB! It is just a good way to make some extra cash from the comfort of your home and computer. That’s all…I’m not saying it should or could replace a job. If you need some extra Christmas money for gifts though, it is a good place to get it.

  21. yoandra  5:06 pm

    hi my names yoandra this will be my first job . im just looking for a way ican make money in a healthy way and its a great learing experience.

  22. Lili  11:03 pm

    I think this is a great way to make extra money and it’s also a great opportunity for those who need extra money to get.

  23. T.J.A.  8:55 pm

    Hi there, kid,
    Not sure what your name is, but wanted to congratulate you for your honest answers. You don’t seem to be misguiding your peers. As you said, this is not a job but a way to earn some extra cash from home. Not sure how it works. I’ve had no experience with this. But your checks and videos look real and you seem honest, and your answers are straight. I’ll be telling my teen son about it.
    Thanks man… from a hard working dad!

  24. kortni  3:46 pm

  25. Pat  9:51 pm

    Looking for a job for my daughter turning 15 in December. This sounds like a good opportunity to make money if it’s legit. Can you answer one question though…Will completing the surveys in any way effect our computer? We only have one in our household and I don’t need any viruses or anything that will slow it down since I need it for work too. I also don’t want ot get any SPAM e-mails.


  26. Money Making Ideas  10:04 pm

    I’ve never had a problem or heard of a problem with anything affecting the computer. With regard to spam, you need to set up a free email account through Yahoo or Aol just for doing the offers because you will get some spam and that way it won’t bother you if you don’t want it to.

  27. Jamey  5:41 pm

    I am in need of a job, or else me and my family will be living on the streets.
    Please contact me if you know of any where that is hiring.

  28. Carl London  1:31 am

    Is the check real? Did you recieve it through the mail or is it just on the computer.

  29. Kaleigh  6:34 am

    my name is Kaleigh and i’ll be turning 15 in feb. but I need to get some type of job (part time) to pay for gas once I get my permit in July. But I would like to start early that way i have some extra cash for my car. Can you help me?
    please email me back.

  30. Money Making Ideas  4:25 pm

    It is a real check. Once you sign up you can go into the forum and there is a whole section on “I just got paid” so you will see that it is real and others are getting paid as well.

  31. Miasha  1:22 am

    This seems a little weird! money fr just taking a survey but really what i want to know is will my computer get any viruses or anything that will make it crash because i can not put anything on my computer that will mess it up..

  36. Money Making Ideas  2:34 pm

    When you sign up for CashCrate you are not installing anything on your computer. And I have never had any trouble with any of the sites or surveys messing up my computer.
