Since everyone has been home looking for things to do, I figured it was a great time to share some of my savings tips and where you can make a few extra bucks. I’ve done the hard part. You can find the apps that I’ve been using on the Financial Tips page.
One way that I save money is by scanning all of my receipts, which then turns into points and cash. I am currently using five apps that have successfully paid me. I’m also using a 6th app on good faith. I’ve made approximately $105 to date, using this method. Since I’m saving my receipts anyway, I enter all the information into my spreadsheet for budgeting. It’s another one of my projects in progress, but at least all the data is there. It’s been interesting to see it along the way.
Cash Back via Apps/Sites:
Another great way to save some money, is to use the apps and sites that give you cash back. The percentage and time frame varies, but I’ve had success with one company in particular. So far, I’ve received $27.36 back using two apps. Also, check with your credit card companies. They will often give cash back as well. My bank gives a percentage off at certain retailers, while my credit card gives me back a percentage of my spending. I’ve received a decent amount back from this as well.
My favorite so far, has been playing games. Previously, I was very anti-playing games. Now that I’ve been making money from it, I’ve changed my mind. As long as I can multitask and remind myself that I’m making money, then I can justify it. I’ve actually made $86 just playing mindless games.
Surveys and More:
I haven’t added them to my site yet, but there’s also several other ways to make some money. There’s surveys, which I’m always on the fence with. I don’t mind them and they definitely pay off, but they can be time consuming. There’s also apps that pay you to watch videos, click emails, and have so many other opportunities.
