Below are just a few of the things that I have received recently. In case you don’t already know, I manage to get a decent amount of useful items for my family, for little to no money at all. Actually the majority of it was free, after rebate. If anything, I just pay tax and possible PayPal fees.
In addition to rebates, I have several other resources to help me to save money. I use coupons, promotional codes, cashback apps, submit receipts, etc. I also belong to a lot of groups, and am signed up for alerts to all sorts of things. On top of all this, I also make extra money with certain apps, games, surveys, tasks, and more.
I’m going to start sharing more about the things that I come across. I really don’t want to spam my subscribers with email notifications, so I’ll try to limit this. Please follow my Instagram and join my Facebook group for additional posts. Thanks!
I have been using Crowdtapfor about two and half months now. I just added it to the Extra Money page. They have an app and a site where you can take surveys. Most of them are quick with one question, and pay three points. Some are slightly more involved, but nothing like most of the other survey sites.
When you open the app, you’ll see what resembles a bingo board full of colored boxes. You click each one to answer a question, until you have cleared the board. Then wait a moment to see if you get any more. Once it’s completely cleared, you can check the site for more surveys.
I talked about YouGov before, but I’m mentioning it now because I just cashed out again. This time I got a $50 Amazon gift card.
When I first listed YouGov on my site, I had it in the passive apps section. I did this because I initially only installed the app that runs in the background on my phone. That’s all that’s needed to accumulate points. Then I would get an occasional email to do a survey. I often ignored them because I get frustrated with surveys in general.
I test a lot survey sites. They can get very involved at times. I lose my focus very easily. Sometimes I feel like it’s taking too long, so I get anxious. I give up on them very quickly. I’m trying to be much better about that.
I recently downloaded the YouGov survey app and I started paying more attention to the emails. I completed every survey right away so they wouldn’t expire. Like I said, there’s not that many. Then I noticed that they were pretty generous with points.
Back in February, I cashed out $15. I was somewhat new then. I didn’t realize that if you let your balance grow, you get more back later. I’m not sure when I started to pay more attention, but it really didn’t take me long to get to $50. I’ll have a better gauge next time I cash out.
If you are interested in trying it out, please use my referral link. When you complete 4 surveys, I will receive 2,000 points. Thank you!
Does anyone take surveys to make a few extra bucks? Which ones do you like?
I’ve been working on several different ones to see which are actually worth my time. If you’d like to try any, there’s referral links here on the Extra Money page. There will be a lot more coming soon.
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.
I just added My Points to the ongoing list of places to make a few bucks.
They’ve been around since 1996. I’ve been using the site since 2010. Back then, there was no app. I used to get tons of Barnes & Nobles gift cards just by clicking on emails and a few other quick tasks. Then I forgot about the site for a while, until I recently started using it again. Otherwise, my lifetime points would be much higher than 8,114.
Points don’t seem to accumulate as quickly as they used to for me, but it’s still worth it. It only takes a few moments to complete a few tasks like taking surveys, playing games, shopping via the app, clicking on emails, and more. Since I started using the app, I’ve made $10 in Amazon gift cards so far.
Try it out using my referral link, and let me know what you think.
