A month ago, I did a post about money making apps. Some I got nowhere with and deleted and then I’ve added a few new ones. I’ve had the chance to really get to use these apps and after adding it up, I made over $100 in the past month. I didn’t think it would be that much! That’s just the cash too, that doesn’t take into account the apps that reward with points. That’s not too shabby.
Most of the apps will show you what’s within a 50 mile or so radius. I only do the ones that are in my town. I’m not going to drive all over the place for these. I just check them everyday because there are constantly new things popping up, whether they are jobs or surveys. I’ll recap my favorites.
Ibotta is kinda like a coupon app. They have products listed on the app (they are constantly changing too), you buy the product and you get the money. The amounts start at $.50 and go up from there. I’ve seen them as high as $3.00. They also have bonuses which earn you money. Ibotta is one of my favorites and I’ll give you an example of why.
I went to Target this past weekend to do my grocery shopping. They had a deal where if you buy 2 jumbo packs of Pull-ups you get a $10 Target giftcard. With those 2 packs, I had 2 $2 off coupons, plus 5% off with Cartwheel. Ibotta then gave me an additional $1.50 on each pack. I ended up paying $19.65 for both packs, which is like getting one free. I also bought a pack of Viva paper towels (they were on sale) and Scott’s toilet paper. Cartwheel gave me 5% off on the paper towels. Ibotta gave me an extra $1.75 for both items. Then I got an additional $5 in my Ibotta account for finishing the $5 Autumn Stock up Bonus. I made $9.75 on stuff I was buying anyways. There are also other bonuses, like a $20 one if you buy any 10 products. See why I like it?
With Receipt Hog, you upload pictures of your receipts from market type stores. You then earn points based on the dollar amount of the receipts. The more on the receipt, the more points you get. The points can be used for cash or Amazon gift cards. Your grocery store receipts alone will add up on this one.
GigWalk pays you to perform small jobs or gigs. For example, they’ll want you to go to a certain store and take a picture of a display or something similar, then answer a couple questions. Easy peasy.
With this one, you earn ‘kicks’ for checking in at stores. If you are already at the store, then it’s a no-brainer. Some stores will also offer discounts with the app. Target offers coupons on certain items. The kicks are then redeemed for giftcards.
Field Agent has you do audits, which is pretty much just going to a store and checking on a display. You can also go the Scavenger Hunt way and try to locate the items they have listed. You get paid a set amount for each audit or scavenger hunt you do.
Checkpoints gives you points or coins for going to select stores and scanning items. Points can also be earned by watching videos, taking surveys, and such. Points can be used to enter sweepstakes or to buy gift cards.
iPoll offers surveys as well as in-store missions. I’ve made the most money off of this one so far, $42.35. If you sign up now, you get $5 for free.
This is another app that has you check on displays and such at stores. They don’t have a ton available yet, but I’ve done 3 or 4 for them.
Someone mentioned this one last time I did this post. Basically, when you watch TV, check in with the app, they give you points, and the points can be used for giftcards or other stuff. No effort at all.
