Checkout 51 – A New Way to Get Paid For Groceries!

January 14, 2014 1 comment by Anna

Get Paid Back For Buying Your GroceriesCheckout 51 is another app you can use that pays you back for buying certain groceries. This one is very much like Ibotta, an app I’ve written a lot about that you may already be familiar with. Checkout 51 has a few advantages over Ibotta:

  • No smartphone needed. They have an app, but you don’t have to use it. You can redeem the offers online, too.
  • It works at all stores. It doesn’t matter where you buy the featured items from. You can upload receipts from anywhere.

November 22, 2013 1 comment by Anna

Earning money with your smartphone pics via IconzoomerIconzoomer is an app you can download to your Apple or Android device and earn by taking pictures and uploading them. I reviewed Foap, another money-making picture app, over at my extra cash site and thought this one might be similar, but it’s actually a lot different.

After you have the app installed, you should get occasional little assignments from Iconzoomer on your phone notifying you of different little tasks. It might be something like, “Take a pic of your shoes,” or

isecret-shop-appIf you like mystery shopping or are interested in doing mystery shopping but don’t particularly enjoy all the paperwork and writing involved in mystery shopping, you may want to check into the iSecret Shop app for your smartphone. iSecret Shop is a mystery shopping app you can download (completely free) that allows you to accept mystery shopping assignments in your area and complete them 100 percent through your smartphone.
How is this better?
Not everyone will necessarily think it’s better, but it may save time because, if you’ve ever done mystery shopping before, you know that you often have to submit a written report on your shopping experience after you’re done and it can be hard to memorize certain things…

Apps Like Ibotta

January 13, 2013 15 comments by Anna

paid-to-shop-with-ibottaSeveral days ago I posted about the Ibotta app — an app that pays you back for the money you spend at the grocery store. I’ve been a big fan of the app because not only is the cash out threshold very low (just $5) making it very easy to get paid often, but Ibotta also sends you your money instantly after it’s showing in your account and you request it. I’ve cashed out a few times now and the money was transferred to Paypal right away! So of course that got me thinking, are there any other apps like Ibotta? I did some checking around and actually found a few…

Another Smartphone App That Pays – Easy Shift

July 9, 2012 8 comments by Anna

easy shift appIt’s been a while since I wrote up a review of a smartphone app that pays. There are several out there like this, and some of the more popular ones are Field Agent, GigWalk, and GoSpotCheck. There is another app I recently found out about called Easy Shift that works in much the same way as those others do. FYI – I believe this one is just for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

December 16, 2011 0 comments by Anna

App That Rewards You For ExercisingMany of us work-at-homers are guilty of not getting enough exercise. I know that for me, I have gotten pretty accustomed to being a couch potato. Exercise has never been something I’ve really enjoyed, but that doesn’t change the fact that I occasionally have to push myself to do it because I know it’s good for me. Well, I came across a smartphone app today that might make it a little easier to push myself into exercising because it will reward me for doing so!
Nexercise is a free app you can download for the iPhone. They don’t have it for Android yet, but they say it is coming soon (possibly January). You can get…
