Just look on fatwallet or flytertalk forums or the boarding area blogs. They spell it all out on how to do it. Pretty high ROI on your time if you just do the low hanging fruit ideas.
My ultimate hobby challenge in life is to keep cutting recurring expenses and making easy money from little online stuff that is either recurring or takes very little time each year, until the little online stuff with very little actual day to day work covers all our ongoing expenses. I do not know if I will ever completely reach that intersection point but I suspect it is possible, and I am having fun trying.
On one forum I saw a post where someone dropped cable and then used Bing rewards points to pay for their Netflix bill each month. That is not exactly a frequent flyer hack but there are probably hundreds of little ideas like that, many do involve credit card / frequent flyer point hacks, you can do just sitting at home reading forums and the money earned or the expenses saved really does all add up.
