As you may know there is so many apps out there that pay you to use them. But how much room and time can we really devote to our phones with them all. I mean really. I have tried a lot and have narrowed it down to just under 10. The rest I have for other important reasons.
It’s a breath of fresh air to realize that just about every kind of purchase we make, we can expect to receive a small return on them all. Praise to the technology gods out there. Although, any hopes to abandon my phone for unplugging are pretty much nonexistent.
I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
I know there are people who are reluctant to use these apps and with good reason. But that’s why I have tried all of these and have received a payment through most of them and still trying some out. So you can trust and believe that I will update this as often as possible to verify their credibilities.
So let’s get right down to them.
My absolute favorite just because it really doesn’t take much effort and it’s super easy, efficient, and the payout is almost always instant.
All you do is sign up and link one card that you regularly shop with and you automatically are awarded with $5 in you account right away. Easy Peasy, right?
What’s even better is that during special promos, Dosh awards those can successfully refer their friends and family with up to $10-$15 bonuses. The upside to this is you can earn unlimited moolah but so many people promote this religiously on social media, there are plenty out there now that think it’s a scam and are missing out on some awesome cashback opportunities.
I have had it for almost a year now and have cashed out twice. You must reach up to $25 to cash out.
Another advantage to this app is that you don’t have to purchase certain items from a store, but as long as you shop at the designated store that’s on the app, you will get your cashback automatically. Also, make sure to use the card you signed up with. Now, if you have more than 1 card definitely add that on as well so you never miss a chance to earn.
Stores that are featured are Walmart, Forever 21, Sephora, Exxon, CVS, Payless, Sams Club, etc

So, this one has been around for a pretty long time now but so easy and addicting to me because I love to shop way too much.
Easy signup and with this app it uses your location like Dosh ( I forgot to mention) to generate the stores in close proximity to you and all its current rebate offers. It’s mainly a good one to have for grocery shopping but also offers online rebates as well.
For this one you will need to definitely save those receipts though because the app requires you to scan your receipt using its own camera function and usually awards you pretty quick.
Right now, they are also offering a $15 per referral who signs up. To date I have cashed out $323.05 to my PayPal account and they also offer other gift card options.

So this isn’t your typical cashback app but it’s pretty fun and addicting to me.
If you like to have a fun time scanning random product barcodes in the store this can be super entertaining and rewarding.
So with every holiday this app offers a lot of opportunities to earn kicks. You just open the app and look up all the stores close by that are offering for walk-ins and scanning opps and it’s just that simple. It also offers more kicks if you decide to buy one of the featured items you scan. Once you reach a certain amount of kicks you can cash out. And yes, they just recently added PayPal as an option.
Hey! At least while you are waiting for those lines to simmer down you can scan stuff in the aisle.

I discovered this awesome app back in 2013 and fell in love. It’s really not just cashback but holds so many opportunities to earn towards free money. It’s still a great one to search deals online. So while you are shopping online for Cyber Monday be sure to access your favorite stores through swagbucks to earn some money back and redeem towards a nice gift card for yourself. This awards you through online searches, surveys, and watching random videos.

So I am just now using this but it’s definitely worth signing up with. If you are one to save receipts, this will be a good use cash out once you are done shopping. Now I will say that they pay you a pretty small amount in chunk change per captured receipt. However, each receipt will add up.
I have noticed you can only capture a few of these a day, but as long as the receipt isn’t more than 2 weeks old you can earn from them.
You can redeem for a gift card, Paypal, or transfer to a bank.
So, now that you know about these, I hope you will at least consider them for your shopping needs. It helps to know while you are shopping for everyone on your list that you can save and make money back on almost every purchase. These apps are a great help to me and I’m sure they can be to you all as well.
So, do you know of an app I didn’t list up here? Be sure to leave them in the comments and I will update asap. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
6. Zap Surveys
I’m not a huge survey junkie seeing that I almost never qualify. But when I do and I get a nice little payment, It does feel good. Like epic white girl dance feel good.
This app I like to use solely because I get to check in everyday at my workplace and earn from that. It does award you for location sharing. I’ve been using it for a Little bit now and halfway to meeting threshold balance to check out so I’m happy to keep using it.

I learned of this through a fb friend around Christmas time and was very pleased to learn I could earn some CB for fueling up. Seriously, as much as I drive it’s worth seeing a little bit from that. You can earn up to $8/Gallon right now at select pumps.
And just like with most apps, it pays to have friends. So ofcourse, sharing is caring. Get Upside
