I just finished doing a web search for “how to earn extra money from home.” Not for me, but if there are ways to help my readers bring in more income, in addition to saving on their purchases.. I’m definitely on the lookout!
What I found is there are so many “Earn money from home”, “Make money while you search the web” websites out there! And, don’t get me wrong, some are completely legit. Surveys, and such just aren’t practical for busy people. And, I’m practical (and busy), so I assume my readers are too!
You shop as you normally would, and either link your grocery store member card to the app, or scan your receipts, and watch your balance climb. That’s it! No catch! PLUS, you can even earn money just having your friends sign up!
Toward the end of the list, I do have a few options for activity apps as well. So, there’s something for everyone.
Now, each app has it’s own way of cashing out, but they’re all easy. And, if you have some hungry mouths to feed, your balance will climb even quicker. I’ve used most of them for the past few years as my Christmas present fund! No joke!
So, let’s get to the apps!
