At Direct Auto & Life Insurance, we love finding ways to help you save money. Just take a look at our low rates! But just because you’re saving money doesn’t mean you have to stop making it—check out these 7 awesome apps that could help you start raking in extra cash for some awesome summer fun!
FOAP – Not all stock photography has to include a group of women laughing and eating salads. FOAP is the next generation of stock photography that allows everyday people to upload their own photos and sell them. You could sell a photo to a blog owner or even a major advertising corporation. For each photo sold, you make $5, and you can sell one photo an unlimited amount of times!
Ibotta – With Ibotta, you can earn money simply by completing simple tasks, unlocking rebates, and then shopping for those items in almost any store. Once you shop, upload your receipt and money will be deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours.
Fieldagent – If long walks down the aisles of shopping malls and stores are in your wheelhouse, Fieldagent is the perfect way to make some extra cash. By taking photos, videos, and other information from stores, you could earn money and help businesses to better serve their customers. Two birds, one stone! Plus, each mission or “job” you accept and complete could make you between $3 and $12.
Slidejoy – Though only available for Android at this time, Slidejoy uses your homescreen as a tiny billboard. If you don’t mind ads, it’s an easy way to make extra money or donate to a cause of your choice!
Swagbucks – Can’t get off your phone? May as well make money while staring at that screen. Swagbucks lets you watch videos, take surveys, and more. In exchange for your time and every task you complete, you’ll earn some mula. Who says watching cat videos doesn’t do any good?
Poshmark – Calling all fashionistas: this app is for you. When it’s finally time to clean out that closet and make room for more, consider selling your gently used clothing and accessories on Poshmark! Similar to an online garage sale, it’s easy to upload pictures and prices of what you’re selling, as well as communicate with potential buyers (who can even haggle with you, if you’re feeling generous).
Achievemint – Tired of NOT getting paid for all of your healthy habits? Don’t sweat it! Achievemint aims to reward their users for everything from healthy tweets to a two-mile run. Simply link your fitness trackers and other health apps to Achievemint and it will keep track of your healthy activities. Every action earns a different amount of points, and you can eventually cash in your points for money or gift cards.
