What if I told you that you could earn money on your smartphone?..I kid you not
Yes, you can MAKE $$$ While you Shop. No, I am not talking about mystery shopping. I have discovered and tested some awesome and very addicting apps to download right on your smart phone and start making money.
Now, don't go quitting your day job..these aren't get rich right now schemes. Matter of fact they may not be around forever. However, they are the most popular and well proven apps to make $$$ from. They are mainly some fun and cool ways to earn money while you shop. So let's take a look at the best ones.
I absolutely adore this app. Ibotta has select stores that you are well familiar with and most likely shop at with select rebates that you can unlock, purchase, scan and redeem for.
Grocery retailers like Food Lion or Lowe's Foods requires you to link your loyalty card to the app and when you purchase your items that are rebated for with that same loyalty card, it instantly rewards to your account and you don't have to scan the receipt that way.
Once you meet the $20.00 minimum requirement, you can cashout to your paypal account. You can actually earn more through your teammates as they earn money as well. Bonuses are awarded once you and your team meet the required goals before the offers expire. I recommend to check weekly which new items might get added. I get pretty excited to see some of my favorite cosmetic items are on rebate.
Literally, the most entertaining app to have on your phone.
Points come in the form of “Kicks”, every time you walk into select stores and scan product barcodes.
Kicks can be redeemed for cool prizes like Gift Cards, Electronics, Kitchen Apparel, etc As soon as you register into the app it will ask you which prize you are wanting to earn for with the certain amount of kicks required to redeem for that prize. You can change the prize and the kicks will change as well for whatever desired prize you really want and once you hit the desired amount you can redeem your kicks for that prize. It's pretty fun to go on a scavenger hunt with your family and friends in a random store just to get some kicks, even if you might get some weird looks. It’s all good though..just Blame it on the Shopkick!
Shop.Earn Swagbucks. Watch videos. Earn Swagbucks. Answer Surveys. Earn Swagbucks. Pretty easy concept. Right?
Each day there is a daily goal that is set for you to meet. If you at least meet the first goal which is about 30-40 swagbucks you will receive a bonus. If you meet your daily goal for 7, 14,21, or 30 days you can earn additional bonus swagbucks. The mobile version is a bit limited compared to the actual desktop version but you can still earn swagbucks while on the GO.

For all the Health and Fitness Addicts out there...this one you might already know about this one.
I actually just started using this and so far I am pretty excited. It's free and easy to sign up. Achievemint collects data from selective apps to help track and reward for healthy habits, such as Walking, Biking, Cardio, Healthy Eating, etc
I am currently 5 months pregnant so about the only thing I do is walk and it helps motivate me to be more active.
You need 10,000 points to cash out on and from I read you can earn up to 80 points a day. Although walking is pretty much the easiest thing for most of us to do, it does seem really slow when you walk over 7000 steps in one day and only get 19 points. But it does all add up eventually.
You can also earn by posting on Social Media using Foursquare and recording your meals.
5. MPlus Places
I recently started using this one and make sure to check in everywhere I go. According to the reviews it does pay and it clearly works whenever I check in to a place like Target or CVS. Daily Check-ins, Tweets, Surveys, and Mystery Box Points definitely add up.
Redeeming for gift cards does take awhile as it takes 62,500 points to redeem for a $25 gift card. The coost part however is that the MPlusPlaces is just one of many apps to earn MPlusRewards. You can download several of them and earn as many points as possible daily to be able to redeem for some cool gift cards.
6. Receipt Hog
Any and everytime you make a purchase...save your receipts and snap a picture through this app. It's pretty cool as each processed receipt will either earn you points, spins, or a entry to each month's sweepstakes where you can earn more points. As you feed the hog daily you will get to level up faster and earn additonal coins and spins. You can cashout through Paypal and each receipt processed shouldn't be older than 2 weeks to be qualified.
This one I just started using but haven't reached the cashout value yet.
Upon reading the reviews, I saw that many have claimed to have gotten paid. You basically are tapping through advertisements until you reach 5,000,000 taps and then you can cashout either a $15 Amazon or Paypal gift card. It seems legit so far, it just seems to take so much time to reach that goal.
when I made the switch to the Iphone I was pretty bummed to find that it was available for download in the apple store. It's only available on android phones. When I did have it on my old phone, I was very pleased to get a few payments from them. Slidejoy pays you to install and display the lockscreen on your phone and once you reach their cashout limit, you would get a cashout through Paypal. Now since it's been over a year since I used it, I imagine they have some updates and changes but I can assure you they do pay.
Golden Rule:: Be Patient, it will take awhile to earn on all of these. But All are proven to pay and if you have the extra time on your hands, why not use it while you are on your phone.
