As the birds are chirping and the sun shining outside, we are all looking forward to warmer weather. With the summertime approaching, so are the making road trip plans for concerts. What if I said you can earn money to go towards paying for those road trips doing simple things as shopping for every day items? Here are a few places where you can earn points and cash back. With each of them, you get paid via gift cards, reward items, and Paypal. Please note that this post does contain some referral links.
Ibotta Phone App
After you make a visit to the grocery store, drug store, mobile shopping, or even to a department store, be sure to check out Ibotta phone app. Before you shop, app offers to qualify for cash back. Buy featured products at your favorite stores and retailers. Redeem your offers by taking a photo of your receipt, scanning bar code of the item you purchased, and get cash back. They offer cash back via paypal after $20. Get $10 welcome bonus when you sign up & enter code mvnkenb!
Fetch Rewards Phone app
This app is like Ibotta somewhat by taking a photo of your receipt. Instead of it being by store, it is by name brand product. You earn points just uploading your receipt. If you purchased particular brands, you will get bonus points. In turn, you get rewards, such as gift cards from a huge variety of stores and restaurants to use. The points add up very fast. Download it and use referral code WJ2HR for 2000 bonus points when you scan your first receipt.
Some other phone apps to scan receipts for points…each offer rewards such as cash back or points towards gift cards and Paypal.
Ebates Website & Phone App
Get paid to shop online with Ebates. First you will go to their website and do a search for where you want to shop. OR you can download the Ebates Button and it will notify you instantly while on a website that there is a cash back offer available. You will shop and complete your order as normal. Once the store notifies Ebates of a purchase, you will get cash back in an account. Every 3 months, you will get a “big fat check” via Paypal. When you spend at least $25, you will get a bonus of $10 if you click here first to sign up.
Swagbucks Website & Phone App
You earn reward points for doing things like searching the web, shopping, watching videos and answering surveys. You can redeem those points for all kinds of gift cards, as well as paypal redemption. I highly recommend shopping through Swagbucks, then activate the Ebates button while you are on a website to get even more cash back. Click here to sign up.
Poshmark Website & Phone App
Do you have a bunch of clothes that you need to get rid of? If some of them are new with tags or in excellent shape, consider reselling them online.
