15 Free apps and websites I use to earn extra income and Save extra money

April 16, 2015
Ibotta – my favorite! Pick your coupons, purchase your items, submit your receipt. Easy! Opportunity to invite your family and friends to sign up and you can earn bonuses! My lifetime cash back: $304.90 since April 2013. Please join through my link by following my link here, redeem a rebate in the first 2 weeks and you’ll earn an extra Bonus. https://ibotta.com/r/zy7suw

Shopmium – I’ve just started using this app and so far so good. Sign up using my referral code and you can get 100% money back on a delicious Lindt chocolate!!!! Yes, that’s a free chocolate! You purchase it at your local store, submit your receipt, rate it and they will give your money back via PayPal. What I like about this site is that they don’t have a minimum payout restriction. They pretty much pay you right away after your submission gets approved. Head over to http://shopmium.com/en/app then please sign up with my referral code KAHMCUFK.  

ShopKick – Walk-in to certain stores and earn points. Scan products that they ask you to scan to earn points. It’s very easy! You can exchange your points into a digital gift cards. I’ve earned 6 gift cards so far by just doing my normal grocery shopping and scan! Love it! Please follow my referral link http://get.shopkick.com/kite11295  I greatly appreciate you following my link! Thank you!!!!!
Ebates – Do your online shopping through Ebates to get anywhere from 1% ~ 10% (sometimes more) of cash back on your purchases.  If you don’t have an Ebates account, you can sign up by clicking here. I would appreciate if you follow my link since I do get credit for referring friends:) Thank you! *You will receive a sign up bonus after your first $25 purchase via EbatesMy lifetime cash back so far is $336.91.

Snap by Groupon – Digital coupon rebate app. I’ve just started using this app last month. Can’t really say much about it, but it’s working fine so far. Cash out amount for this app is $20. I’ve redeemed several coupons and have $6.55 in my account. Not many coupon offers compared to ibotta. I also noticed that coupon offers disappear quickly. Please follow my referral link https://snap.groupon.com/app?ref=02773de680d6eace  Thank you and I appreciate you following my link!
Receipt Hog – Just snap a picture of your grocery shopping receipt! It may take a while to reach the minimum coin amount for cashing out, but hey it’s free! They do give you free coin spins that could possibly give you extra coins. I’ve cashed out several times and have had no issues with this app. http://app.receipthog.com/download When you sign up, please use my referral code: rict7840  We’ll both get extra spins at the Hog Slots when you submit your first receipt. Thank you for using my referral code!
CheckOut 51 – Digital coupon app. I’ve been using this app for awhile, but I haven’t been able to cash out yet because it has a minimum amount of $20 to cash out. So far I haven’t had any major issues with this app and I have $15 in my account. I have $5 to go to cash out. It seems forever to reach $20, but it is free so I just have to be patient. Supposedly, this app will send you a check to your address once you cash out $20. I’ll have to see and will write an update on this once I receive my first check from them. https://www.checkout51.com

SwagBucks  – I usually answer their daily survey to get 2 points. If I have time, I answer surveys, print coupons from them to use, search, watch videos and etc. to earn more points. It all depends on how you want to earn your points and how much time you want to spend on SwagBucks time. I usually try to earn at least 17 points each day. 17points X 30 days =510 points. You can exchange 500 points to a free $5 Amazon.com gift card.  Or earn 10 points each day. 10 points x 30 days = 300 points. You can exchange 300 points to $3 Amazon.com gift card. I’ve been a SwagBucks member for awhile, but really didn’t start doing things on this site until November 2014. Since then, I’ve received $33 in Amazon.com gift cards. I love free stuff:) It really depends on how much you want to spend time. Warning! Be careful about their offers where you have to pay to sign up or purchase to earn points. I’d stick with surveys, watching videos, coupons, searches and etc.  http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/PoppinMom Thank you for following my link. 

I received six $5 gift cards and one $3 gift card from SwagBucks
InboxDollars– Read email to earn money. You have to have patience for this site. It doesn’t give you quick money. I think I get $0.02 to open each email. Warning! Be careful about their offers where you have to pay to sign up or purchase to earn money. I’d stick with reading email, surveys, watching videos, coupons, searches and etc. It is a good idea to have an email account just for this site or any other money making sites. I have a separate account especially for websites like this so that my personal email doesn’t get flooded with unwanted emails. They will send your check once your account reaches $30. However, they will take $3 service fee that will be put back to your account, so you’ll get $27 check from them or however much money you have accumulated over $30. http://www.inboxdollars.com/?r=ref12009910 Thank you for following my referral link! I greatly appreciate it! 

My payment history from InboxDollars
FieldAgent – I love this app! Mystery shopping, store audits, surveys and product testing /review. I’ve received over $300 worth of free products from this app! They ship products to my home. I use it, answer questions and I get to keep the products. My Lifetime earnings: $391.51 (lifetime earning amount does not include free products that I received and kept for product reviews) https://fieldagent.net
Loot! – Take pictures, post on Twitter / Facebook and etc. Easy! They have fun tasks for you to do and yes, they will pay you! You can cash out via PayPal when your account reaches $10. I’ve been using it since October 2014 and made over $40 http://loot-app.com

EasyShift – I’m not a big fan of this app just because I don’t really see the jobs that I would like to take. However, I’ve made $36.50 from this app. I guess you get more shift jobs based on where you live. Sometimes other shifters take up all the jobs, so you may not have a chance to reserve your shift jobs, but try it and see what happens. You may have better luck than I do using this app:) http://easyshiftapp.com

SavingStar – digital coupon app! Just like other apps, pick your coupon, submit your receipt or have your store royalty card saved on your account. Every Friday SavingStar offers 100% money back on one product:) I look forward to getting a free product every Friday! Their coupon offers are pretty good too! My lifetime cash back from SavingStar is $53.39! https://savingstar.com

Kroger – If you are Kroger shopper, you must have their app! Download coupons to your account. Kroger also gives one free item every Friday, but you must download the coupon for they particular item that they are offering free to your card only on Friday to get your freebie. By the way, I received  one Tostitos dipetizers for free last Friday:) https://www.kroger.com

Jiffy corn muffin mix got it free via SavingStar on 4/10/2015
Tostitos diptizers got it free via Kroger on 4/10/2015
I’m still trying to figure how ShopYourWay works….signing up is free, they send you surprise points from time to time. Some surprise points have restrictions, some don’t. Just look at the pictures below to see free or almost free products that I received / purchased by using my surprise points. http://www.shopyourway.com Read more about my recent savings using ShopYourWay on my precious post. http://www.poppincents.com/2015/04/i-love-bargains.html
