I am always exploring and testing different apps that allow me to make some money or earn rewards like gift cards. Here is a list of ten great apps that I’ve found to be legit ways of earning money. These apps aren’t meant to make you a billionare, but they are an easy way to make some extra pocket money. I’ve tried out all of these apps on this list, and have been able to make some money or earn gift cards from each.
I seriously love this app, because it is easy to use and fun. In Shopkick, you must earn “kicks” which are basically like points that you can later redeem for giftcards. There’s different ways to earn these kicks. One way is by scanning certain items at the store that the app asks you to scan. Another way is by buying certain items at participating stores and uploading your receipt. You may also link your credit card to Shopkick and get kicks when spending at participating stores. There’s also a lot of giftcards to choose from, including Starbucks, Target, Amazon and more.
I am still relatively new to Receipt Hog, but I am definetely pretty excited about this app. It’s simple to use. All you need to do is take photos of your receipts and then you’ll be able to get points to redeem for giftcards. It’s super easy to use, and doesn’t require you to spend any extra money.
Job Spotter is an app that basically pays you to take photos of “Now Hiring” signs. Basically, every time you upload a photo of a “Now Hiring” sign, you earn points which then converts into Amazon gift cards. What I love about this app is the ability to cash out at any time so you don’t need to wait until you’ve reached a certain amount of points before getting paid. The only downside is that rewards are limited to Amazon gift cards, but personally I am okay with that since I love to shop on Amazon and there’s a lot of stuff to buy on there anyway.
Mercari is an easy to use app that allows you to sell your stuff. You can sell anything from clothes to electronics to handmade items. All you need to do is take a photo of the item and fill out some details of the item to list the item. Listing the item is free, but Mercari does take a 10% comission when sold. What I love about this app is that it is easy to list items and communicate with buyers. Definitely check out this app!
