Marcus Caine is currently using these apps to save money on Amazon purchases. All of these apps are currently in use.

With a mediocre economy and increasing levels of debt, people are looking for ways to get some extra cash to make ends meet. As a result, people have been working two or more jobs, cutting back on all discretionary spending, and searching for other means to really stretch their paychecks. Here are seven money-making apps that will help you get some extra money. These apps will not make you rich, but with a strict budget, they can help you move closer to your financial goals.

1. Google Rewards

This app is available for both IOS and Android. Google sends surveys asking about your viewing habits on YouTube as well as spending habits and places you have visited. Completion of these surveys will earn varying amounts of Google Playstore credit, which can be used to purchase apps, albums, in-game purchases, etc.

2. Bing

Bing is the most popular search engine second only to Google. If you sign up for a Microsoft account, you will be earning Bing rewards points whenever you search using Bing and when you complete the quizzes and various other activities available on the Microsoft rewards page. You can also download the Bing mobile app, so you can earn additional points and the app is available in both the Google Playstore and the Apple App store.

3. Job Spotter

Indeed, the job board, has developed an app that allows them to obtain information about jobs from local businesses. They need people to take pictures of wanted ads/posters on the windows of local businesses in their communities. In exchange for these pictures, Indeed will reward users with points, ranging from 5 to 105 points. There are also monthly competitions, and the users with the highest accumulation of points in a month will earn additional points. You will earn more points if you take pictures from local businesses vs national companies. You can also earn points by verifying the pictures other users take as well.

These points can be converted for Amazon credit, which can be redeemed for anything on Amazon. This app is available on both IOS and Android.


4. Panel App

With this app, all you need to do is keep location services running on your phone, and you can earn points! Points can also be earned by filling out surveys and referring people to the app. Points can either be spent on for the chance to win many sweepstakes on the app, or they can be exchanged for gift cards from Amazon, the Google Playstore, Walmart, etc. This app is available on both IOS and Android.

Click here to download the app.

5. Shopkick

Much unlike Ibotta, you do not need to purchase items to earn points! You can earn points by walking into stores and visiting sites listed in the app. Of course, you can also purchase the selected products from stores and take pictures of the receipt to earn points as well. Linking to credit card(s) to the app and watching ads will also increase the amount of points you earn from the Shopkick. These points can be redeemed for gift cards from Amazon, Target, and AMC Theatres, to name a few. This app is available on both IOS and Android.

6. Bitcoin Spinner

Unfortunately, Bitcoin Spinner is only available for people in the U.S with an Android phone and a Gmail account. Once you set up an account on Coinbase, then you will be able to use the spinner to earn various amounts of Satoshi (1/100,000,000 of a bitcoin). Referrals can result in you earning 5% of all bitcoin they earn and withdraw. There is no minimum balance needed so you can transfer balances to your newly created Coinbase account and transfer the money to your bank account.

Click here to download the app.

7. Bitcoin Miner

Like the previously mentioned app, Bitcoin miner gives you Bitcoin. This app gives you 1000 Satoshi every 30 minutes. You can also earn Satoshi by watching ads hosted by the app and by installing apps, though it doesn’t work so I don’t recommend it. The minimum payout is 500,000 Satoshi.

Closing Remarks

In conclusion, these apps by themselves will not magically change your fortunes, however, they can help you pay down debt and save money along with a strict budget. I hope these apps will help you in your quest to be debt-free and start saving!
