I am always looking for new ways to make extra money and save wherever possible. Literally, always. I’m obsessed.
There’s an endless amount of apps and websites out there that offer to pay you points for this or a couple cents for that. Some will monitor your money and even spot you if you are short a few bucks. It can be overwhelming and confusing. I’ve had my share of stress and wasted time just trying to better myself financially. Oh and the added plethora of annoying spam calls, texts, emails. I even had nearly 300 apps installed on my phone for some time.
Sorting through it all quickly became a spiraling cluster of sorts. I’ve managed to organize a spreadsheet to keep track, but some things are harder to calculate. It has helped to figure out what is legit and beneficial. Surprisingly, I have actually made some decent progress narrowing things down a bit…for now. Until the next round of “let’s try this”. I’ve put in the hours of researching and testing, so I figured it was a good time to start sharing.
I’m not completely batty, I swear. I do see the benefits.
As far as receiving cash back and payouts via Amazon and PayPal, I have made a decent amount since I have started this a few years ago. It will grow quicker now that I have done the basic legwork.
The tasks are generally simple. They include surveys, playing games, reading articles, scanning receipts, data entry, affiliate programs, referrals, and more In addition to this I also use coupons, discount codes, and cashback apps. I get some free samples here and there.
I am sharing the companies that have been the most successful for me and I have received a payout. I also mention if I’ve ever had any issues with any of them. They all can be found throughout the Smile, Sparkle, Save section. I have included my referral links and codes so that if you decide to join, we will both get additional benefits. Let me know what you think and feel free to share any apps that have worked for you.
Everyone’s results will vary. For the most accurate up to date information, see the individual company’s site/app. I’m in PA, US, using an Android phone and Windows laptop to access above mentioned. My only affiliation is that I have personally used these companies and share my referral links, which may pay an incentive.
