Paribus helps you save money while shopping, and even afterwards. It’s affiliated with Wikibuy, which is part of Capital One. If you download the Wikibuy extension, it will check for coupon codes and the best price when you’re shopping online at certain stores. I’ve used it a few times to find the best deal.
Paribus also keeps track of your deliveries. When something arrives later than promised, Paribus will contact you advising that you may be eligible for compensation. I’ve done it twice this month. I often forget about this part since I’ve never had to utilize it, until recently.
My last two shipments from Amazon were late. The first one was slightly disappointing because I was looking forward to my new vacuum, but no big deal. The next day, I noticed that Paribus sent me a message. This directed me to their site to view the late delivery. They said I could contact Amazon via chat, while providing the link to do so. They even gave me the exact wording, including my order number. All I had to do was copy and paste the information into the chat. I received a $5 credit right away. They made it extremely quick and easy. I would guesstimate a few minutes total between receiving the email from Paribus and receiving a credit from Amazon. This happened again on another shipment and I was given $3 for that one.
I haven’t been able to locate a referral link or code to provide, but it’s still definitely worth sharing. Try it out https://paribus.co.
I’ve been working on getting more companies added to the Financial Tips page whenever I have a moment. YouGov Pulse VPN seemed to be a great one to add next. It’s an app that just runs in the background of your phone. Once in a while, I get a notification to reconnect it. Somehow my phone drops off. I think it’s because I have another similar app running so they are conflicting, but it hasn’t affected my earnings.
That’s literally all you need to do to accumulate points. I also receive emails on occasion to take a survey. They aren’t too lengthy and they pay out a decent amount of points. Since I’ve downloaded this, I’ve made $15. That’s pretty good since the most I do is a random survey.
This app has quickly become one of my favorites. You can make a few extra bucks doing quick tasks with little effort. The “coins” accumulate fairly quickly.
Giftloop has a continuous loop of screens that you swipe through. As you swipe, you come across several cat memes that you click on for 5 coins. In between the cats, there are also short videos to watch for 50 coins. You can complete offers, trials, install apps, take surveys, and more. They have a daily login bonus, along with other daily bonuses. For example, there’s a daily bonus for taking a survey. So, you get the coins for the survey itself, then collect an additional 750 bonus coins.
I have made $35 in Amazon gift cards since I’ve started using this app, near the end of last year. That’s not bad since I primarily just watch the videos, do an occasional survey, and collect my 5 coins whenever the cats pop up. Oh and I always have my phone set to collect coins whenever it’s charging. I would have cashed out more but I rarely complete the offers, apps, and trials. Since I’m really not testing out as many apps anymore, I think I will be using this one a little more often.
Per their site, “MobileXpression is a market research panel designed to understand the trends and behaviors of people using the mobile Internet.”
I love this app. I always brag about how easy it is to use and to make a few extra bucks. It takes very little time. You just install the app and let it run in the background of your phone. If I recall correctly, there is a security setting that you need to adjust for it to track properly. Once a week, I click on the app. It verifies that it is connected, then I collect my five points. That’s it. I’ve actually made $35 in Amazon gift cards, since the end of 2019. The amount would be higher, but when I first signed up I would always forget to click on it each week. Now I set a reminder for myself.
As much as I would love to provide a referral link or code, there isn’t any available. If you are interested in trying the app, I can send you an email. Although, I don’t know if there are any benefits for referrals. There is an affiliate program, but I haven’t signed up for it. You can also go to your app store, or their site to sign up at https://www.mobilexpression.com/About.aspx.
Try it out and let me know what you think, or if you have similar apps that you have used successfully. I am always looking for feedback.
Sometime soon, I plan to update the Financial Tips page. There’s several more sites to add that I’ve been using. I also realized that I added some that haven’t actually paid me yet. I tend to get side tracked and lose my train of thought. I really want to make a point to separate those that are legit, tried, and true.
That’s the whole point of sharing all this on my site. I’ve experienced not being paid, wasting too much time, contacting customer service multiple times, researching, and so forth. I have been doing the crappy part of the work and discovered what is right for me. Now, those that are interested can partake in the benefits part with me. All I ask is that my referral links and codes are used. Most of the time when you do this, both parties get some sort of extra rewards.
The rewards are absolutely the only reason I do any of this. I honestly never had any interest in playing games on my phone. Except for that time I was obsessed with Dragon Vale for a while, but that didn’t last long. I viewed anything unproductive as a complete waste of time and other things should be done instead. When I learned about being paid to play games, this finally intrigued me. I looked into several apps. One paid me, but then stopped accumulating points. I ran into all sorts of snags, but I have found one that has been pretty decent. It’s called Mistplay. So far, I made $40 and I’m just about to cash out another $25.
I am taking a break from testing out any extra apps at the moment. It’s time consuming and I want to check out a few other things. I definitely need to do more surveys. If you find the right ones, they actually can be profitable. They are a bit of a timed, focused commitment which I struggle with. I will add the ones I have been successful with at some point. My latest endeavor has been testing and receiving discounted and free Amazon items. There’s one site I’ve received several items from, but it’s not always successful. I am working on researching some other sites at the moment.
Are there any apps or sites that you are using to make or save a few extra bucks? Share what works for you and any referral codes you may have as well.
