10 Sites and Apps that Pay or Save You Money

There are many sites out there that will pay you money, oftentimes for things you already do. Over the years I have gathered a large number of sites because I am always looking for new or easier sites that will pay me money. Here is a list of my favorite sites.

1. Ibotta An App That Pays Cash for Your Everyday Purchases.
This has been a favorite app of mine lately. They offer a large number of rebates and cash back for shopping online. It's quite easy to use. You activate the offers you want to redeem before you go shopping and then when you return you simply take images of your receipt with your phone camera and scan the barcodes of the items you're redeeming with your phone camera. Some stores you can even link your loyalty card requiring you to only activate offers and watch the money add up in your account. One of my favorite things about this app is that it has frequent bonuses significantly increasing the earning potential.

2. Microsoft Rewards Get Paid to Search the Web
You can easily make $5 a month using Microsoft Rewards. It's super easy you can even earn money from reading the news. I love this program and have been using it for years. While it's not huge earnings, it is extremely easy and guaranteed, unlike many other search programs.

3. Checkout 51 Earn Cash Back on Top Grocery Brands
This app, while similar to Ibotta, offers many different brands. Unfortunately, when brands overlap you usually can't claim both at the same time. Typically this is my secondary app, I usually check it when shopping but am less likely to find brands I buy other than the anybrand offers. 

4. Raise Buy or Sell Gift Cards
This is a great marketplace where you can buy gift cards at a reduced prices to purchase things you buy anyway. What's even better is you can even use Ebates or Swagbucks to earn cash back at raise and where you shop to get essentially double the savings.

5. Swagbucks Earn Money for your Online Activity
This has been a long time favorite for me. I have earned an enormous amount of money with them and much of it with minimal effort. They offers a chance to earn money when searching the web, they offer cash back shopping and many bonuses. There are also many great offers. Check out this post to learn more.

6. InboxDollars Earn Money for Checking your Email
You can earn money for confirming paid emails. They also have a large number of offers. What I like this site best for is the mobile app's videos. You can earn up to $0.50 a day plus bonuses with pretty minimal effort. They can be interesting too.

7. Google Opinion Rewards Earn Cash for Short Surveys
This app pays you money through PayPal for taking very short surveys usually less than 4 questions and if you disqualify you can still make some money. Everyone with an iPhone should install this app. The cash out limit is only $2. I only wish there were more surveys.

8. Panel App Earn Almost Passive Income
This site tracks where you go and gives you money for it. It also has optional short surveys that pay a little bit extra money.

9. Achievement Earn Money for your Health Activity
This doesn't pay a lot, but it's completely passive. There are rare surveys and other offers, but for the most part, you just link your health apps and watch the money roll in.

10. Plenti Earn cash back at Exxon, RiteAid and others.
I have a love-hate relationship with this one. I have earned a lot of money with them, but have also had many issues where offers didn't credit automatically. It's worthwhile if just for the gas savings and occasional cash back at RiteAid. Otherwise, I wouldn't put too much extra effort into this one.

The new iPhone XS and XS Max are here and the XS Max is pretty incredible. While the differences may not seem earthshattering at first...
