While I do all that I can to save money, I’m also always looking for ways to make a few extra bucks. There are so many apps and sites out there that advertise that they will pay you for certain tasks. A lot of them pay very little and take a long time to complete, if they pay at all. It can be overwhelming and confusing, and eventually it just isn’t worth it.
I’ve actually managed to find a few things that have been successful for me. The tasks are generally simple. They include surveys, playing games, reading articles, data entry, and so on. It all adds up, and helps quite a bit.
I have several more to add to this page. Please check back for updates.
Data sharing apps run in the background while collecting data from you. There’s a few apps that offer this in addition to other tasks.
- MobileXpression runs in the background of your phone. It’s literally just a data sharing app. Once a week I open the app, which takes me to my browser. I then click Continue to claim another five points. That’s literally it. I have made $125 just by clicking those few buttons.
Surveys can be a great way to make some extra money. There are several listed on the Survey Sites page.
I’ve made over $200 so far, just by playing games. A few are listed on the Play Games page.
The following sites and apps can actually be more involved. I have more to add here. I’m currently moving a lot of things around at the moment. Please check back.
- Amazon Mechanical Turk (mTurk)
mTurk is a website that consists of mostly microtasks that you do for Amazon. This may include surveys, extracting receipt information, provide search results, pulling data from a site, rate pics, and so on.
When you first start, you only qualify for certain tasks that pay lower amounts. This will increase over time. I’ve seen some pretty decent income reports from people doing this.
The following takes very minimal effort, in general. Tasks include things like games, watching videos, reading articles, browsing the internet, playing music, and more. They may also have other things like installing other apps, completing offers, and so on. I don’t usually do those parts of the tasks, so I don’t make as much on them when it comes to that. I have more to add here with my next update.
25Clicks sends small tasks for you to complete via text and email. Each one pays $0.50, and payments are made on Fridays through PayPal. Tasks include asking to Google something in particular, then click on a site, and provide information.
Do tasks like uploading pics, Google search, surveys, etc. Honestly, I haven’t done a lot with Clickworker yet.
Enroll is a site that has different “tests” that you take to help with the development of their app. They are like surveys to get your opinion. Check your dashboard daily for new tests. There’s also badges that you can receive too. They make payments via PayPal.
- Microsoft Bing Rewards
Microsoft has a rewards program when you use their Bing browser. Each day when you go to your dashboard, there will be a new set of ways to earn points. Read a story, take a quiz, and more. I made $10 in Amazon gift cards so far.
- Mode Earn App
An Earn App by Mode has a lot of different ways to earn points. There’s gaming, surveys, videos, articles, music, and more. I just started testing this one out recently, and cashed out a $10 Amazon gift card. I’m on the fence with this app. It seems to take over my phone and make it glitchy, yet, it adds up quickly with points when I use it.
- One Scanner
One Scanner has a few different ways to earn points and diamonds. Each day, there are new activities to complete. They include scanning items, scratch cards, slots, games, and more. I have noticed that the points have decreased as time has gone on, so it takes longer now. I have cashed out $3 to PayPal.
These apps have been discontinued or replaced by another app since I’ve started using them. I’m including them here for reference.
- Achievement connected to fitness apps, building points by walking, etc, with an occasional survey. I made $10, but but the app has been replaced.
- Giftloop involved swiping through screens while collecting points, and more. I made $65 from it, but it’s been replaced by the Mode Earn app.
