Everyone loves extra cash. Either to travel or for everyday expenses. Especially at the current moment when many people are still unemployed or making little income. What if you could supplement your income doing tasks you do every day? Here is a list of apps that provide passive income.
Do you have an Apple Watch or a Fitbit? Maybe, you track your food with MyFitnessPal?
You can connect over 20 apps that you probably already use to the Achievement app and earn money. The app will pay you money for the number of steps you take, the amount of sleep you get, every time you weigh yourself, etc. For every 10,000 points, you get $10.
You can also earn points by taking surveys and participating in research studies. I participated in an influenza study. Every day I answered simple questions, and then I did a five-minute survey once a month. At the end of the study, I made a total of $71.
2. Diet Bet
We have all dieted at some point. The ups and downs of weight loss are a vicious cycle. Personally, I need an incentive. Sometimes that beach vacation isn’t enough. With DietBet, you can join a game with other people pledging money to lose a percentage of body weight over a specific length of time. If you succeed, then you split the pot with the other winners.
4. Safe 2 Save
Safe 2 Save rewards you for paying attention to the road instead of your phone while driving. After downloading the app, you get points for every minute of safe driving. Safe driving is defined as not using your phone while going over 10 mph. If you touch your phone while driving over 10 mph, the app will stop adding points to your account.
Although this app does not actually reward cash, the reward points can be redeemed at local restaurants and retail stores.
5. Receipt Hog
Do you know that insanely long receipt you get at the grocery store, even when you buy two things?
Scan it with Receipt Hog. By scanning receipts and answering simple quizzes, you collect coins that equal cash. It’s that easy.
Do you hate when you order something online, and then it goes on sale the next day?
Or when you buy something on Amazon Prime for that party in 2 days and it doesn’t show up in time?
Paribus will track items you buy from over 25 online stores. They will alert you if any price drops and contact the merchant to get a refund.
I have an Amazon addiction. Every time Paribus notifies me of a late delivery, I contact Amazon, and they usually offer me a $5 gift card.
The app is not available on Google Play but Android users can sign up through their website.
Now that you have all this extra money, why not go on a roadtrip?
