Make Some Extra Christmas Cash

My Christmas Gift list is long...too long. I am already stressing about budgeting for the presents I need to buy. So I checked out a site today that you apparently can make some quick extra cash on. It is not a GPT Site, but more of a "Task" site that Amazon has where a person can choose from a list of "hits" that are on there, and get paid through their amazon account when the task is completed. Here is info from the website:

What is a HIT?
HIT stands for Human Intelligence Task. These are tasks that people are willing to pay you to complete. For example a HIT might ask: "Is there a pizza parlour in this photograph?" Typically these tasks are extraordinarily difficult for computers, but simple for humans to answer.
How do I find HITs to work on?
Just click the "Get Started Now" button to browse thousands of available HITs, without any obligation.

How do I work on a HIT?
Once you have chosen a HIT to complete, click the "Accept HIT" button to have it assigned to you.

Follow the instructions on how to complete the HIT and when you are done, click the "Submit " button to save your answer.

Step 3 - Earn - Get paid for your work

How do I get paid?
You are paid when your answer is approved by the person that listed the HIT.

The money you earn is deposited into your account, where you can turn it into cash at any time by transferring it to your personal checking account.

I know this is not a way to get rich, for sure, or even a way to make a decent income, but it could be a way to earn some quick extra Christmas cash. After looking at the various "hits" offered, it looks like offers range from .01-$7.00....some tasks take very little time/effort, and others a bit more time.
