Paribus

Paribus is a program that links your email account and your Amazon account, and other online stores, and will track price drops and pay you the difference between your original purchase and the price drop!

I bought a Nexus 6 and got back $150 when the price dropped a few days later.  No work besides linking the accounts (link the email account where e-receipts are sent, and my Amazon account).

ShopKick adds rewards for online shopping!

Letter from the CEO:

shopkick
Hi Lazy Money Guy,

I’m excited to share that today we’ve updated Shopkick with some exciting new features. For the first time ever, you can earn kicks for shopping online!

Shopkickers have told us how much fun they have using Shopkick, and they want more opportunities to earn free gift cards and other merchandise. With these new updates, you can enjoy three new ways to get kicks for online shopping. You can now earn kicks for visiting online stores, viewing online offers, and making purchases from Apple, Boxed, eBay, Groupon, Spring, and Jet.com.

I love hearing from consumers across the country about the joy and excitement Shopkick brings to their shopping. Cassondra Taylor from Newport News, VA had an early preview of online shopping and said, “These new features will definitely help with back to school shopping! I normally use my kicks for my Starbucks addiction, but now I will use them to get school supplies for the teens.”

We’ll do everything we can to make your online or offline shopping trip — whether it’s for groceries, apparel, or electronics — as fun and rewarding as possible. I invite you to try out these new features and connect with us on Facebook to share what you think.

Happy online shopkicking!

Bill Demas
Shopkick CEO

Gift Card Granny

Gift Card Granny is where I go to buy discount eBay and iTunes gift cards.  I use the iTunes gift cards for the iOS apps that BestReviewApps lists where the app costs money.  I make that money back, plus the reward money for downloading and reviewing those apps.  Average savings on iTunes gift cards has been $0.09 for every $1.00 spent.  So I buy an app that costs $0.99, it only costs me out of pocket $0.90.  I also will get $1.00-$1.50 back on top of the full $0.99 that the app costs when I do the BestReviewApps review.  So I spent $0.90 and I potentially get back $1.99-2.49!

I also get AMC theater gift cards, so movie going is a lot cheaper (I usually find 12-20% discounts on their gift cards), plus signing up for the AMC stubs program (free for Insiders, $15/year for Premier, which I also pay for using the gift cards I purchased on GiftCardGranny!), which gives me points for purchasing tickets, food, etc. on top of waiving the online ticket purchase fees through their website or Fandango.  So I am basically earning more AMC Stubs points per actual dollar spent.

I have notification alerts should any Hulu gift cards show up.  I always look for gift cards here first before I go shopping to make sure if I can save the most money.  They can deliver e-gift cards or actual physical gift cards.

When you select the card(s) you want, you will be redirected to seller sites, not actually purchasing the card(s) in GiftCardGranny.  Some sites through GiftCardGranny have stars next to their name because they award points on GiftCardGranny which can be used for added benefits, or towards future gift card purchases.

MileUp

MileUp awards you for driving.  You get 2 points for every mile you drive.

You can use these points to enter into Sweepstakes for Amazon gift cards, cash, or even a brand new car!

You also get an in-depth look at your driving habits and stats!

They have weekly challenges that award bonus points.

Get $250 when you submit a verified accident report!

They also have something called Street Sweeps which will award surprise points when you hit certain areas or miles driven.

Payver

Payver is an iOS app that records your driving and pays you for it!

Click Here to Get Started!

You get points per mile traveled and they have certain conditions in order to maximize how many points per mile you earn.

You will need a phone mount to hold your phone in a way that it can see the road clearly and at a good angle.

When you have everything set up and ready to go, you will press the Record button and it begins recording your drive until you press the End Trip button.  When you start each trip, it will first show a cartoon road and indicates how to line it up so it matches the road you’ll be driving on.

As you drive, it will count up the points as well as show your speed and which direction you’re driving.  At the end of the trip, it will calculate the total estimated points.  They are an estimate because your road conditions and other factors will play into actual points when your trips are uploaded and reviewed.

You upload the trips and will see their progress as they upload.  Finished trips will have a check mark on them.

To see total points, achievements, team and player rankings, and rewards, click on the Profile button and then you have access to all that information and more. (Information has been scribbled over to respect privacy of other players and their usernames).

I am including the settings I have when I use the app to get the most out of it.  I have an unlimited data plan through Sprint, but I try to use WiFi whenever possible since it can sometimes have better uploading speeds for how much data each trip is.

Click Here to Get Started!

One more thing:  This can be used to record incidents from 20 seconds before to 20 seconds after, which you can use as evidence.

Voxpopme

VoxPopMe is a survey app that wants the questions asked via video recording.  As long as your smartphone has a front-facing camera, it is pretty easy to use.  They will start off many times with preliminary questions you answer to see if you qualify for the video surveys.  If you do, the video surveys will pop up.  I have made usually between $0.25 – $0.65 per video survey.

Your answers have to be between 30-60 seconds.  You have to be somewhere quiet so the recording can capture your answers.  You have to be somewhere with enough light, so they can see your face and facial expressions as you answer the questions.

Cash out is at $15 minimum via PayPal.

You can redo answers prior to submitting.  I have had to practice some because I will ramble if I don’t know exactly what I want to say.

Digit’s New Fee Schedule

Email from Digit:

Hey Lazy Money Guy,

Today we have a couple of big announcements to make.

As Digit becomes a more important part of our customers’ financial lives, we’ve decided to make a conscious decision about how we want to make money: We work for you, and you pay us. It should be that straightforward. Too many financial services complicate things by making money doing things not in the best interest of their customers. Charging for Digit will allow us to support our service while making sure we always do what’s right for the customer.

A monthly subscription will cost $2.99. For all existing users, Digit will remain free for the next 100 days.

We are also significantly increasing the Digit Savings Bonus. All customers will now earn a 1% Savings Bonus (up from 0.20%). With the recent introduction of Goalmojis, customers are saving more than ever, and we want to make sure you’re earning real rewards for saving with Digit.

Thank you for being an early user, believer and fan. You have helped sparked the savings revolution. We promise to continue building products that make your financial life easier and better.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

SweatCoin

SweatCoin is a step tracking app.  You earn SweatCoins which can be used to redeem for fitness gear, electronics, or other cool rewards.  The rewards change daily.

1000 steps equal 1 SweatCoin.

They have a battery saver mode but it comes at the cost of not tracking as many steps.  I don’t use battery saver mode because I have a portable backup battery I use if my iPhone battery gets too low.

This app also has membership tiers.  The more steps you have per day, the higher required membership to convert those steps to SweatCoins.

Another fun thing through this app is In-Voting offers.  Other users can post items they want to sell through the app.  You can post your own items or services for others to purchase using SweatCoins.  When you post an item or service, other users vote on including it in the Available Offers section of the app.  Once it gets there, they can purchase it and you earn the SweatCoins!

Available in the US, UK, and they are working on adding other countries.

SparkProfit and Tiql

SparkProfit and Tiql are fun investing app/websites where you can make gains or losses (a simulation, or investing real money), and the bigger the gains, the more you get in actual money rewards.  I bring in anywhere from $10-20USD/week per program depending on how good my trading skills are.

SparkProfit is a play money investment/trading app, and you can get paid weekly for using it.  The more successful the trading, the higher payout you can get each week.

Tiql uses actual money, whether it is transferred from money earned in SparkProfit, or money to deposit into it.  So when you gain in the program, it is an actual gain, and if you lose, it is an actual loss.  It is not available for the USA at this time.

TIQL has country restrictions, including the USA, which cannot use this program.  USA citizens can still use SparkProfit, but can’t use TIQL.

You can cash out at $30USD.

SurveySavvy’s Project Gold

SurveySavvy has a program that runs in the background of your computer, your tablet, and your phone (Android and/or iPhone) and rewards you $5/month per device (up to $15/month or $180/year) called Project Gold.  Additionally, it is not limited to one account per household.  I have my account, my wife has hers, and we bring in a total of $30/month when connected to each laptop, tablet, and smart phone.

You will also get invites to different surveys, many of them pay $1-5, while others pay upwards of $50 when you meet pre-qualification standards.

You can cash out at a minimum of $1 at a time.  They mail a check for the amount you cash out.

By running their program on your devices, it helps them to narrow down which surveys you qualify for and saves you the time of going through prequalifying questions and rejections.

You have to save the deal first prior to purchasing the product to get the cash back from the app.  You then scan your receipt (the whole receipt) and earn the cash back for that purchased product!

TryMyApps

TryMyApps (iOS and Android) is a quick earning program.  In about a month I made about $35 from it, and it has not slowed down.  Download the apps using their app store search keywords.  You get rewarded the money after running the app for at least 4-5 minutes (usually $0.20/per app).  And then some of the apps pay extra by playing them daily for up to 5 days in a row ($0.02/day).

Click Here to Get Started and use code HLVV7 for the iOS version or UP2RGN for the Android version for an extra sign up bonus!

BestReviewApp

Use BestReviewApp by going to their site from your Android mobile browser, or their iOS app.  You select the apps they have available, download them, use them for a few minutes, and then review them.  They say they require a 4 or 5 star review to complete the task.  If you don’t want to do a review for 4 or 5 stars, then cancel the request to review it, otherwise they count it against your account.  5 negative counts against your account, and they freeze it.  If you aren’t awarded for doing the review after 3 days, email them at their support email address.  They are pretty good at resolving issues right away.

Reviewers can get paid between $0.50 to $1.50 by writing reviews of Android and iTunes apps. I’ve made $50 in a week from this, but the amount varies depending on the apps they have available for review. You also get the money back for the paid apps you review in iTunes and Google Play! It pays to your PayPal account on Fridays and you can cash out at any amount.

It is available worldwide and no minimum cash out requirement.

Carrot Wellness

Carrot Wellness is an app that earns you points for steps you take.  The steps are tracked with FitBit and Google Fit.  Link your Fitbit device as it is a little more accurate in steps tracked.  You can then exchange the points you earn for gift cards, entries into giveaways, and contests as well.

You earn 1 point for every 1 step you take.

Click Here to Start and get 1000 bonus points!

You can also get local businesses to partner with the app and offer rewards to use at their locations and have Carrot send info to your employer to have them use Carrot as a way to incentivize employees to be more active ($250 bonus to you if they sign up)!

Rabadaba

Rabadaba is a social media app that pays you to be social! They pay you to do everything you normally do on social media, such as posting pictures, videos or just text posts about whatever is on your mind.

The way it works is you make a post (a dab) and then other users can view your dab and upvote your post.  When a user upvotes your post, you are given a rab which is essentially the point system used. There is also an option to tip users with rabs if you really like their content.

They also have contests that award $10, $7, $5, and $1 worth of rabs for the top posts on a DAILY basis!

The app provides for a great community of users who help each other earn rabs and enter contests for even more!  It is on both Android and iPhone! Minimum cash out is $5 which is equal to 500,000 rabs.  Don’t be surprised at how quickly rabs start accruing when you use the app on a consistent basis!

They also have in-app chatting with other users to connect even more and get you more rabs!

Agua Points

Agua Points (iOS only for now) is a more altruistic money earner as their end game is to help build water wells.  Their own earnings are used towards the water well building campaign.

How it works:

Download the app, set up your account, lock your screen, and then it starts earning points.  The longer your iPhone (Android app coming soon) is locked, the more points you earn.  They do not award points 24 hours per day, but for the normal daytime hours you would normally be using it, as you are basically giving up your use of it to earn points and support their cause.

When you earn enough points, you can buy gift cards to any store they have listed (1200 points = $10 Amazon gift card, for example).
