Free money for shopping

I'm at a place right now where I could use a few extra bucks every month to help stay afloat. Have you ever been there? I think most of us have. So I've come up with a few ways to get paid a little extra money for things I do anyway.

Get free money for shopping when I scan my receipts

Do you grocery shop? Do you want to make free money for doing it? When I go grocery shopping, or really any kind of shopping, I always make sure to get a receipt. Why? Because I can scan that receipt on several different apps and get paid for all of them.

The app Fetch pays you for all grocery receipts you scan, and pays a little extra if you buy items from brands on their list. Register with Code GM0PW to get paid $3 in points. 

Coinout is my new favorite receipt app to get free money for shopping. It pays a random amount of money, from one cent to 10 cents, for every receipt you scan, no matter where it's from. You can also forward receipts from your email to them for credit.

Ibotta is probably the granddaddy of all free money receipt apps. The rebates on Ibotta are pretty big if you buy the items they're promoting.

Get free money for shopping without doing anything extra

Probably my favorite app to get money for shopping without even thinking about it is Pei. Just link your card on the app, shop where you normally do (places like Walgreens, Starbucks, McDonalds), and watch the free money roll in. Use my referral link: yinylh to get a free $5 when you get credit for your first purchase.

Another app like this is Drop. With Drop, you choose 4 stores you frequently shop at (options include Whole Foods, Trader Joes, CVS, and more), register a credit card, and every time you shop at one of your preferred stores, you get free money back! Use my referral code qi1mf to get a free $5 when you link your first card.

All the free gift cards

First, sign up with a Swagbucks account, if you don't already have one. This is my referral link, if you don't mind.

Under special offers >> Trial Pay (or just under special offers if you're on a mobile device), there should be an offer that says by a $10 gift card through Gyft.  It may say to buy a target gift card or starbucks or whole foods, but whatever it says, when you click on details, it will say "or any other gift card."

Buy a gift card you will use anyway.  You may or may not also have a $5 promo gyft card for first signing up (which would be a free $5 added to your gift card).

Check out with google wallet.  You will earn 50 points on the gyft app, and you will also get an emailed gift card for a bonus $5 toys r us gift card.

You will earn 450 points on swagbucks, which is enough to redeem for a $5 amazon gift card.

Earn money and gift cards for the holidays: Swagbucks

One of the ways I like to save money is to earn little bits of money in my spare time to offset some of the costs, especially around the holidays.  I thought I would highlight some of my favorites here.

Swagbucks is my favorite. Sign up and then complete a variety of simple tasks - answering polls, searching the web, watching videos, clicking through slide shows and earn points that can be cashed in for gift cards or paypal cash.

My favorite way to earn through Swagbucks is to install the video apps on old phones we have around the house that run on wireless. There are several of these apps now, and you can just set the videos to play and forget about it while you go about your life.

Sometimes I also do some offers for larger quantities of swagbucks, things like signing up for mailing lists or free trials of paid subscription sites. Just be careful that if you do that, you cancel anything you don't want before you end up paying for it.

I usually earn between $25 and $50 a month through this one site, in my spare time while I wash dishes or watch TV with my kids.
