Making money any way I can with my phone seems like all I’ve been wanting to do these past few weeks. I’ve literally discovered so many good apps (some bad ones along the way as well but I won’t tell you about those) and sites that will help you make some extra cash. I’m literally on my phone most of the day so why not make money while doing so… right? Alright, so these are the best apps and websites that you can get the most out of.
I first discovered Feature Points through the website and later found out it’s available for download but only for androids. If you don’t have an android then I recommend just using the website, there isn’t a difference at all between the two. Feature Points gives you a certain amount of points for tasks that you complete like downloading a game or answering surveys. The way that I have had more success with it is by answering the surveys, these tend to give you more points. They have a great referral program that gives you 50% of whatever your referral earns. Ummm I think that’s pretty Ah-MAZING!
Rewards: Bitcoin gift cards, iTunes, Amazon, Paypal Google play, Starbucks, Xbox, Bestbuy, Sephora, Walmart etc.
This is an app you can download, when you sign up you instantly get $5 added as credit. This site helps you make money with small tasks you probably already do with your phone like play games, watch videos, using their toolbar etc. This can be one of the slower methods but trust me when you complete things every day it can add up before you know it. The payout for this app is $30 so once you reach that you can request your check. A great way to rack up the numbers is by referring friends, you get 10% of what they earn, how cool is that! Rewards: Check mailed to you
Now, this is a cool app to keep around in your phone. They will send you surveys to answer and they can range from 10c to $1 or even more at times. In the first couple of minutes of downloading by answering just a few questions, it gave me $1.60. Not bad for me not having to put in hard work. The only thing is that you have to wait for their surveys to arrive and sometimes it takes a day or two for you to receive a survey. You have to reach a minimum of $10 to cash out.
Rewards: Amazon card, Visa, Paypal, Starbucks.
I love Shopkick it was one of the first money making apps I downloaded and actually worked for me. Shopkick rewards you for walking into certain stores that they have in their app like Walmart, Target, Cvs, 7/11 and many more all you need is to have your locations on and open up the app as you are entering the store and boom automatic points! They also reward you for finding certain items in those stores and scanning them & for buying the item as well! They’re seriously awesome!
Rewards: Amazon gift cards, Bestbuy, Footlocker, Gamestop, Nike, Target, Toys R Us, Tiffany & Co, Lowes and many more!
Swagbucks is a site where you can make points that turn into cash. You can complete a variety of actions like surveys, watch videos, shopping online etc. When you sign up you can use my link to get your first $5! You can also make Swagbucks by using their search engine and using as a default whenever you browse the web, this is an easy way of making around 50SB a day. You need 450SB to get a $5 gift card.
This would be awesome to get some gift cards before Christmas time or Birthdays!
Rewards: Amazon gift cards, Paypal, Walmart & many more!
Ebates is one of the best sites in my opinion to make some extra cash. Do you shop online? Then boom make some money while doing so. They offer hundreds of retailers and give you cash back for your purchases. The cash back percentage usually has to do with that specific store so it can vary from time to time. I have made cash in the past with them and not to mention their referral program is the bomb you get $25 per referral that makes a purchase of at least $25 and they get $10 as well! Everybody wins with Ebates.
Rewards: Cash sent to Paypal
This is a really cool and easy way of making money daily without doing much! Adme is available only for androids and what it does is it puts ads right as you unlock your phone. So after you unlock your phone an ad will pop-up and you don’t have to click on it if you don’t want to, you won’t receive any extra money if you do. You can just click off the ad and boom you will receive some money. Depending on your settings you can receive anywhere from $0.04 and up.
Now I know what you might be thinking but considering that all you gotta do is click off an ad every once in a while its a pretty cool way of making some extra money. I have made $80 in the past with this app over the course of several months and it came in handy right around Christmas time.
Rewards: Cash sent to Paypal.

With the Drop app, all you have to do is link your bank card or credit card (it is safe ) When you go to certain stores that are qualified in the Drop app and make a purchase using the card/s you linked you will automatically earn points! This was great for me because one of the qualified stores on there is Target and I ALWAYS shop at target so it’s a win-win situation, they also have points for Uber and other great stores and services we use daily! Use my invite code (gph7n) to get $1. When you refer friends and they use your invite code you get $5! Love it!
Rewards: Gift cards like Amazon and Starbucks etc.
This app is simple to use. What it does is help you get money back on items you have purchased when the items price has dropped. All you gotta do is scan the barcode on the receipt and it will do the work for you. The app when you first install it will look through your email to find recipts or you can just scan your recipts manually.
This is an app that pays you just for downloading the app. After having the app downloaded for a week then it will let you play a game to earn a prize like gift cards to Amazon you could even win other physical prizes, the best part is they actually give you the prize for winning it’s not a scam win like other games have done in the past. I got 10 credits just for opening an email and it only takes 30 points to earn yourself a $5 reward gift card of your choice. 50 points give you a $10 gift card of your choice.
Rewards: Gift cards and other prizes.
If you’re like me and use Uber then this is a cool way to make $5 per person you refer and they get a free first-time ride. You get to use that money towards your next Uber ride!
Rewards: $5 credit towards next ride
