#1 Swagbucks

Swagbucks is a long time favorite way to earn extra money. You can make money by taking surveys, watching videos, referring friends, voting in daily polls, find swag codes, and more. My favorite way to earn with Swagbucks is by watching videos.

Jobspotter is a fun little app created by You can earn points for taking pictures of places that have “Now Hiring” signs posted. You can also earn points for verifying other Jobspotter’s work. Once you have money in your wallet you can cash out to an Amazon gift card.

I tried it out and was awarded $0.24 just for signing up and submitting my first photos. It takes 24 hours (or less) to have your images verified. Once verified I was awarded 47 points for my images. I clicked to get my money out of my “wallet” and it automatically sent my gift card for $1.00 in the form of an Amazon gift card.

#4 Slice the Pie

Slice the Pie is a way to earn extra cash by reviewing brands, music, videos, fashion, etc. You basically get paid to share your opinion. I did a 2 minute review and earned $0.11, so yeah…you’re not going to get rich doing this. But it’s definitely easy money that you could earn while you’re watching TV.

Field Agent is an app that allows you to mystery shop from your smartphone. By completing short tasks…

You can earn up to $7 on the go in one task. The mystery shopper feature also allows you to experience and rate products to pubs for free! It can be competitive so make sure you check often for any “missions.”

Mintvine is one of my favorite survey sites! It’s such an easy way to earn cash just by taking a few surveys and answering their daily poll. You can cash out when you have 1000 points for $10 to your Paypal account or a gift card.
