Making money using apps and the internet is the new side hustle or 9-5. As a stay at home mom, I’ve used various of apps and online sources to make some extra change. I️ wouldn’t quit that 9-5 just yet, but if you’re looking for extra side income, these are some apps and online sites that I’m currently using.
MTurk is easy money and you could make anywhere between $100-$500 a week. I️ know you’re probably like, “What? Let me call my boss now!” It’s definitely not that simple. MTurk is a site that companies use for on-demand work. I’ve had a task so simple as taking a survey or even looking up an address on google. During sign up, you will be taken through a list of qualifications. Whatever you’re qualified for, you can most likely work. The HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks) pay anywhere from .05 to $50. You link your bank card to cash out through Amazon Pay. It usually takes me 2-3 days to receive my payment.
Now, I’m not the most patient person to go through long extensive surveys. I’ve enjoyed Pinecone so much more than any other survey app. I️ often feel cheated when apps use a point system, but Pinecone is unlike any other I’ve experienced. 300 points is equivalent to $3. You can cash out with a min of 300 points through PayPal, Gift Cards, e-gift Cards, or a Mailed Check.
Dosh is like the new Shop kick. Instead of walking into a place and earning points, you get cash back for any purchases you’ve made. You can earn up to 10% cash back. During sign up, you will be asked to link a card and you’ll receive $5. Earn an extra dollar for any additional cars. When you refer someone, you receive $5 instantly.
This survey app is more of a poll taker. Every day you will receive polls, based on your profile survey. They are points based and it does take a little longer to earn. I’m very certain once you get $5 you can cash out. I’ve only cashed out twice but the polls are fun to take so I️ don’t mind.
BEW (Best Easy Work)
A lot of online income sites are using social media and word of mouth marketing. This site offers free website hosting, travel or dining discounts, etc. It’s free to join and will pay you $25 for every referral you get. In order to have your own team, you would have to pay $88 but the payout is up to $50. To make money from your team’s referrals, the fee is $188+ for a payout of $150+ $30-$100 Over-rides. Set up direct deposit or get mailed a check.
This app allows you take surveys and click links for money. The unique thing about this survey app is that it’s also a google extension. You download the extension and every time you google something, there will be a list of sites or discounts codes on the side of the screen. You can make up to .10 a click. Once you reach $5, you can cash out through PayPal.
Get paid to grocery shop with Ibotta. There are special offers from different stores on this app. Whenever you purchase an item on the app or sometimes just make a purchase, you can scan your receipt and earn cash back. You’ll also earn $100 for every 10 referrals, $20 for 2, $30 for the next 3 and $50 for the next 5.
Almost everything is available in an app. Robinhood is a stock app and you earn real money for investing in stock. Whenever you refer someone, you and that person will receive free stock. That’s no investment for an opportunity to earn big money.
Brand promotion or brand ambassadors are becoming more and more popular on social media. Sign up using Instagram and/or Facebook and you will receive campaigns to post for different brands. My current pay rate is $10 for any post. Earn $1 for every friend you refer. This is great for those trying to be in the social media industry.
