Assuming that you have items listed above, you are now ready to download, install and try some of the top money-making apps for some side income. If you want to get close to or above the $300 month goal, you will need to install as many apps on as many devices as you can. Make sure that you remember to use them daily, be on the lookout for bonus codes and points on social media and always share them with your friends.
Top 10 Smartphone Apps for Extra Cash
- 1. Qriket – This is my favorite money-making app to date because everyone will win cash using this app just by spinning the wheel. You can also use some of your cash, (if you dare) to get additional spins. If you follow Jonny Comparelli, the CEO and founder of Qriket on Twitter, Instagram and watch his live Periscope broadcast, Qriket users have a chance to win $100 and get free spin codes. I recommend watching his live Periscope broadcast on Thursdays and Saturdays because it is energetic, fun and entertaining. You may even get some free spins for extra cash. Qriket is available on Google Play and the App Store to download for free. You can use my code 155066 for 25 bonus spins when you join!
- 2. Boom Gift – I just found out about money-making app the other day. Boom Gift will give you free gift cards and cash just to download and install apps, watch videos, share links on social media and other easy tasks. You can redeem your cash via PayPal or with Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Steam and other gift cards. Also available on Google Play and iTunes. Sign up for Boom Gift and use the code bef63c9 for 20 bonus points!
- 3. Smart Panel – The Smart Panel is an app that you can install on your computer, tablet, smart phone or all three that will run in the background and track your online habits. I like this app because you are not required to do anything to earn money here. You will need to keep the app installed in order to get paid. You will earn an extra $110 in a year just for installing the Smart Panel app.
- 4. Feature Points – This is another one of my favorite apps that I use for extra cash because you get paid to download and try free apps. You will need to try the app for at least 2 minutes in order to get credit. It is also available both on Google Play and iTunes.
- 5. Perk – If you haven’t tried the Perk app yet, you will definitely want to do so. You can access Perk on your computer or laptop and still earn points without a smart phone or tablet watching Perk TV, searching with the Perk Browser, and more! But if you have a mobile device, you will be able to earn so many more points with Perk with the Perk Pop Quiz app, Perk TV that you can stream and run while your asleep and much more. You can also win big cash and prizes by using the Perk Scratch and Win app or Perk Sweepstakes for $1,000, $500 or $100 or a Samsung Galaxy S6, Steam cards, PS4 and much more. This is in addition to the cash you will earn just for being active on Perk. Click here to find out which Perk app has earned one member over $2,000 in cash and gift cards.
- 6. Swagbucks – Swagbucks has a mobile app that is available for download on Google Play and iTunes that will help you to earn cash and gift cards just for watching videos and movie trailers on Swagbucks TV. You can also search the web, take daily polls and much more for extra cash.
- 7. ibotta – The ibotta app has paid out over $65 million dollars and counting to their members for uploading their receipts. You will earn $10 when you join ibotta and upload your first receipt. You will scan your receipts via your smart phone or tablet to get cash back when you go to the grocery, the movies, shop at home improvement stores and much more!
- 8. Nadamobile – This company will pay you to watch very short commercial and advertising clips from your computer, smart phone or tablet. You will need a Facebook account to join. You can redeem your rewards for free cell phone service or gift cards.
- 9. Ebates – I love Ebates because they give you cash back to shop online! I have received my Big Fat Check from Ebates several times. They participate in over 1,800 stores and Ebates is completely 100% free and legit to use! Use this app to get the hottest deals, coupon codes and more! You will get a free $10 gift card when you join and use Ebates. Ebates was listed on my Top 20 Online Earners for 2015. See who else made the list here.
- 10. Checkout51 – This is another cash back app that you can use to get real cash for uploading your grocery receipts. You can also log into your account online and upload your receipts with a photo that you saved to your computer if you don’t have a smart phone or tablet. You also have a chance to win $500 extra dollars from Checkout51 when you upload a grocery receipt for more than $60!
