This post is about a few apps that I use on my I-phone to earn some extra money. Usually, using these apps regularly allows me to pocket anywhere from $100-200 extra cash every month! The amount you can make/save depends on how involved you are with using the apps.

1. The first app im going to talk about is Swagbucks, one of my favorites. This app/website allows you to earn points for purchases you make online at participating websites. You can also earn points by completing surveys, watching videos, answering polls & so much more. The points you earn can then be redeemed for a Visa gift card, or tons of other retailer gift cards. Click here to sign up & start earning points! --> http://www.swagbucks.com/?cmd=sb-register&rb=17174657&cmp=197&cxid=2000-app

2. Another awesome app that I use is Receipt Hog. This app allows you to take pictures of and upload reciepts from purchases made at participating retailers, you earn points for your receipts, then you can trade those points in for a paypal or amazon gift card! And if you submit receipts regularly, you can earn spins at the slot machine, where you can win more money or even have your entire shopping trip paid for. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s free.

Plus, if you use this referral code, you'll get extra spins at the Slots when you submit your first receipt: ( slon4459 )

3. I also use an app called Shopkick, it shows you all the best items at stores nearby, like Target, Best Buy, Costco, Anthro, Old Navy, you name it. They also give you points ("kicks") just for walking into these stores. You can earn extra kicks by scanning items with your phone. Then you get free gift cards with the points at Target, Starbucks, Old Navy, Best Buy etc, or even movie tickets.

4. Ebates - Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online cash back shopping. Ebates pays members cash back every time they shop online as well as provide them with the best coupons and deals online. Founded in 1998, Ebates Inc.'s websites have paid over $325 million in cash to its members. If you love to shop online, like me, then this website is a MUST to sign up for!

- Some other apps that I use here & there are Checkout 51 (Upload Receipts to earn points), and the Krazy Coupon Lady app (Explains how to get the best deals on items in stores using coupons)

    1. Swagbucks is my favorite since I do alot of online shopping. Also reciept hog is pretty good too if you can remember to scan every reciept to the app.
