my favorite money making apps!

.
Guys, I am always looking for alternative ways to make money. I got pretty excited a couple years ago when I discovered that apps exist where you can earn gift cards and cash! There are a ton of different options but these are my top 5 favorites that I've found to be most successful!

There are a few different ways to earn points using Shopkick. My favorite and easiest way is to "check in" at different stores. You literally just open the app on your phone and click on the store that you are currently inside! Points can also be earned by scanning selected items inside the store or connecting the app to your credit card to earn points with purchases. Points can then be cashed in for gift cards. I always get the Target gift cards and they can be scanned at checkout right off the app.

The rest of the apps that I've included are receipt scanning apps which require you to scan your receipts to earn points or cash back. 

Ibotta is my favorite receipt scanning app because I've been able to make the most money back this way.  Ibotta has many different categories from which you can earn rebates including grocery stores, restaurants, retail and beauty purchases. The easiest way to earn money is from grocery purchases. Each week there is a different list of grocery items from each store that is featured on Ibotta. Some of the items are brand specific ( such as Eggo Waffles ) but they also include generic options like bread or cereal. You go through the list selecting each item that appears on your grocery receipt, scan each item's barcode and then scan the receipt using your phone. You then receive the money you've earned! 

It sounds tedious when I'm typing out each step but it really is quick and painless especially when you realize that you are really making money this way! One of the best features of this app is that when you hit $20 you can withdraw the money through Pay Pal. This app is how I paid for a new pair of boots last winter!

Checkout51 is another app that allows you to scan items you've purchased as well as the receipt to earn rebates. This app doesn't feature as many products and I've found that it takes longer to earn money back than Ibotta. However, if you're already going through your receipts for the Ibotta app, you may as well be adding on a little extra money by checking the Checkout51 app as well! This app allows you to receive a check after you've hit $20.

Ok the next two apps I've listed are pretty cool because they are receipt scanning apps that allow you to earn simply by scanning the receipt and nothing else! You don't have to look through for certain products, you literally just scan the entire receipt and you're done. Receipt Pal lets you scan receipts from grocery stores as well as restaurants and retail stores! For every 4 receipts scanned, you earn 100 point which add up to be redeemed for gift cards.

This is another easy app that gives you points for simply scanning receipts. This app also has little games built in and sometimes you can earn extra points this way. Points can be redeemed for Amazon gift cards or cash through PayPal. This app is how I feed my amazon show addiction.
