Blogging Tips



I do EVERYTHING with my phone. I love my iPhone. Over the last year or so I have learned many great apps along the way. Here are my favorite 10 ways to make money with your smartphone.



Ibotta is a free app that pays you cash for everyday purchases. Ditch the coupons and get cash back the fun and easy way. Ibotta has exclusive rebates at your favorite grocery stores, retailers, and shops. No more searching around for offers, coupons or discount codes – find the best deals every time you shop with Ibotta. 100% of your Ibotta earnings can be transferred to PayPal or Venmo as soon as you’ve earned $20. If you’d rather convert your earnings into a gift card, you can do that, too.

    Receipt Hog                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Earn real cash with your receipts. Receipt Hog is a fun and rewarding way to turn receipts from the everyday shop.

Receipt Hog is a free mobile app that turns your everyday shopping receipts into easy cash rewards!

For every qualifying receipt, you snap a picture of and submit, you’ll earn a sweepstakes entry for our monthly drawing. Our monthly sweepstakes drawing could earn you up to 5,000 coins!

You’ll also earn coins or spins, depending on the retailer on your receipts. Each time you spin the Hog Slots, you have a chance at even more coins and 1 lucky winner each day will win the value of his or her last shopping trip in coins. Once you’ve earned enough coins, you can redeem them for your choice of either a PayPal transaction or an Amazon e-gift card.

Frequently active participants become eligible for additional ways to earn including short surveys, barcode scans, even more, spins at the Hog Slots, all of which earn you even more coins, so it pays to stick with Receipt Hog!

   Shop Kick                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Shopkick is the shopping app that shows you the best deals and popular products at stores like Macy’s, Best Buy, American Eagle, JCPenney, Sports Authority, and many more. And it rewards you with kicks (like rewards points) just for walking in the door. Get even more kicks when you scan items and make purchases. Redeem your kicks for gift cards for your favorite stores                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Swag Bucks

      Swagbucks is an online reward and cash back program. Simply do the things you’d normally do online, such as search the web, answer polls, watch videos, play games, and shop; you’ll accumulate points that are quickly redeemable for free gift cards, PayPal Cash or pre-paid cards from Visa. Almost $100M in cash and rewards have been awarded.              Swagbucks is an online platform where you can earn points called SB, which can be redeemed for gift cards, coupons, and sweepstake entries. They also have a smartphone app for iPhone and Android operating systems. You can easily earn SB by watching videos, answering questions, completing offers, and even surfing the web using their toolbar. Refer your friends and you’ll earn even more SB. Your SB points can be traded in for gift cards from Amazon, Target, Starbucks, PayPal, and Walmart.                   

      Field  Agent

     Want to make money and improve how companies serve their customers? Our agents use their smartphones to collect photos, video, and information from stores and many other locations. This information is often used by businesses to better serve customers just like you. So be part of this meaningful work…and make some extra cash while you’re at it.                


     The Gigwalk app is available on both iOS and Android devices.     Registering your Gigwalk account is as easy as answering a few basic questions and providing an email address.     All payments are made through PayPal. Add your PayPal email to your Gigwalk account in the app settings menu.  Apply for Gigs through the map or Gig List. After being accepted, follow the Gig instructions and submit your work directly in the app.


Getlocket is only available for Android systems and it basically pays you to place advertisements on your phone’s home screen. Once you unlock your phone the ad will appear, swipe one way to interact with the ad, and the other way to access your phone’s functions – either way you get paid. Locket uses a proprietary algorithm that pays based on how often you unlock your phone throughout the day. You account must reach $10.00 to request a payout and payments are made via PayPal.
