There’s only one thing I love more than money saving….and that’s money MAKING!!! The last THREE vacations we’ve been on were either partially financed or ALL of our spending money came from these EXACT apps. So I’ve complied my favorite list of money making apps that I use to supplement my income, and you can too!
1. Ibotta-This is SUPER easy to use, and I’ve made hundreds! Its basically like couponing only WAY easier! All you do it check out what’s available in store and online, and redeem the rebates by taking picture of your receipt via the app (and occasionally the bar codes of items). There are tons of retailers like WalMart, Publix, WinnDixie, Amazon, Target, etc. Rebates range from produce to Wine/Beer/Liquor (Mom win!), Often you will find new products that become completely FREE after rebate. You can cash out to PayPal/Venmo, or various gift cards after $20, and if you click HERE to get started your earn and INSTANT $10 when you complete your first rebate!
2. Shopkick-This works via a point system, and you can earn points simply by walking into stores! Points are redeemable for various gift cards including Disney, Starbucks, and Amazon, to name a few! You also earn via purchases, and scanning barcodes with your phone. Protip-Hand off your phone to your older kids to search for items in the store. Its like a fun scavenger hunt for them and you get to shop hassle free! Win-win! Sign up HERE and earn an extra 250 kicks with your first walk-n or scan!
3.Myecon-While not technically an app, you can save the site as an “app” to your phone home screen so I’ve included in on this list. It lands solidly at number 3, while I was tempted to actually make it number one because of its INSANE ability to generate large amounts of income! Myecon is a personal financial services company and is A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau.There is a $47.90 membership fee, but this INCLUDES a plethora of financial services, including their Smart Credit System credit repair (cheapest I’ve seen BY FAR!) Cash Flow Manager (budgeting software) a Debt Elimination Calculator, AND shopping and travel discounts. So in my opinion, the cost is offset by the benefits and the HUGE earning potential. They pay referrals out up to $35 each, so as you can imagine, it adds up quickly. Sign up HERE, then Contact me on Facebook to get started, as I will provide you with a FREE step by step training to boost your referrals! (and not have to harass your friends and family!)
4.Dosh– Any easy to use app that operates by collecting shopping data. You DO have to link a credit card to this in order to earn cash, but they don’t charge it. You earn money by shopping at various retailers, and there is a $5 referral bonus for everyone you refer who also links their card. They run promotions and I’ve seen referral bonuses as high as $15! Cashes our to PayPal, or they offer the option to donate all or a portion of your earning to charity. Download here
5.AirBnB- If you’re not yet familiar with AirBnB, you’re either living under a rock or off the grid, and either way you’re TRULY missing out. AirBnB is a site/app where people list their homes for you to stay in. Some are shared rooms (similar to hostels) which are a great option for solo travelers, or you can rent a room or an entire home. Home can range from Tepees to Treehouse, or regular style homes, condos or apartments. They even have remodeled Airstream trailers! The true benefit of this is getting affordable accommodations without sacrificing style or comfort. We stayed in a Tuscan villa style Mansion in Miami for cheaper than you can stay in a motel! Sign up HERE to get $40 off of your first trip of $75 or more.
