Make Money With Your Smartphone

Updated on January 23, 2017

Smartphone Apps That Pay

The following is a list of smartphone apps that pay you back. Most are associated with daily activities you are already doing. I can personally confirm that all of these are legitimate and do pay upon reaching minimum payout balance.

  1. Perk TV - Watch app trailers, movie previews, and/or play games for points. Redeem points for giftcards or cash via Perk Plastic. $1-$5 a day, passive income.
  2. Checkout51 - Go shopping, upload your receipt, receive cash rebates for products you buy. $20 minimum payout through PayPal (confirmed). Cashback varies; I make between $0.25 and $3 a week.
  3. Ibotta - Save coupon offers through the app to your phone. Go shopping, upload your receipt, receive cash rebates for products you buy. $10 minimum for payout through PayPal, gift cards, or Venmo. Cashback varies; I make between $0.25 and $5 a week.
  4. Yaarlo - Scan your receipts into the app and get one point for every dollar you spend. Cash out for gift cards when your account reaches $20. Enter code YCK-CLAIRE903 to open your account with 100pts. <$1 a week.
  5. Checkpoints - Use your smartphone to scan barcodes of products while shopping and earn points. Redeem points for gift cards. $1-$5 a week.
  6. Mobee - Complete secret shopping missions (between 2 and 8 minutes each). Earn points. Redeem for gift cards. Use 69Z9 for a signup bonus. $1.50 - $8 a job.
  7. Shopmium - Go shopping, upload your receipt, receive cash rebates for products you buy. No minimum, payout through Paypal in less than 48 hours. Enter code GFEYCKVE for a signup bonus. Cashback varies; I've made $10 over about a year.
  8. Viggle - Get paid to watch TV. Check in through audio recognition technology and earn points. Redeem points for gift cards. (Recently merged with Perk TV. See above.)

Websites that Pay

Here are the best websites to use for making money online and a short description of what they are all about. Follow the link provided for more information and tricks and tips regarding each.

  1. Ebates - If you do any online shopping at all, Ebates is a must. Basically you go through this website before shopping online and you get a percentage of your purchase back. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great for higher bonuses. This site also provides discount codes. $5 minimum paid by check. *See below for proof of payment.
  2. Hubpages - Make money through online writing. Account must reach $50 for payout. Cash paid via Paypal.
  3. Secret Shopping - Not technically an "online" only job, but opportunities are sent to your email or you can login to the website. Cash paid via check, PayPal, or Payquicker.

      I've never tried any of the shopping options. They may be worth checking out.

      I highly recommend all of the rebate apps. All have been easy and excellent as far as being worth my time.
