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.

Maven Things Remembered Mother’s Day Special

Yes, once in a while, I will sprinkle in a post or two about products or programs that I like to spend money on or suggest you spend your money on.  We deserve good things, to “Treat Yo Self” for being so lazy when it comes to making money.

MavenX is a site I have been using similar to Pinterest to post about products I like, products I have bought, and wishlist items as well.

They currently are highlighting a Mother’s Day special deal for the site Things Remembered and I made a board of some of the stuff I want and stuff I want to get for my wife HERE.

Their special deal is 20% off plus free shipping with promo code A159 (valid though Mother’s Day, May 14)!

MobiSave

Click Here to Start Saving! 

MobiSave is a grocery shopping savings app.  You are shown a list of available rebate products.  You can select or “save” the ones you are going to buy.  These deals, once you save them, expire within 7 days.  So don’t save a deal if you don’t plan on buying the product within that time.

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!

Shop anywhere

No need to change where you shop. Any store that provides an itemized receipt is covered.

Get paid quickly

Never wait more than 24 hours for your savings. They drop it right into your PayPal account.

Spotty signal? No problem! Refresh your list when you have a connection, browse offline when you don’t.

No payout is too large or small! Get paid within 24 hours, no minimum amounts required.

Yaarlo

Yaarlo is a receipt scanning app that also provides discount shopping opportunities.  Unlike other receipt scanning apps that offer points per receipt or coins, this one offers actual cash.  Scan any receipt that isn’t older than two weeks (14 days).  Whether you purchased anything from any of their listed stores and deals or not, scan your receipts with the app.  You can also email them with your e-receipts from online purchases like Amazon or eBay.

They accept receipts from Retail stores, Grocery stores, Restaurants (local, chain, and fast food), Gas, Wholesale clubs, Entertainment, and Personal services.

Points are given based off of the category your receipt falls under: 
Grocery Store: .25% 
Gas Station: .10% 
Retail Store: .25% 
Local Restaurants: .25% 
Pharmacy: .20% 
Personal and Entertainment: .20% 
Fast Food Restaurants: .25%

Their Shop ‘n Earn program allows you to earn up to 5% back when you shop online through Yaarlo at your favorite retailers. Simply, click Shop ‘n Earn on the app or visit www.yaarlo.com to start browsing your favorite stores. Once a purchase is made the cash back will be automatically applied to your account.

You get $1 for signing up (verifying your email) and getting your first approved scanned receipt.

Click Here and enter code: JONATHAN383 to get a nice bonus for signing up!

DealSpotr

Dealspotr lets you post deals you find, similar to Slickdeals, but you get points you can use towards Amazon gift cards.  There are several ways to post deals:  Codes, coupons, site-wide deals, product deals, in-store or online, freebies, etc.  As you post deals, you get points for them, points for completing daily checklists, and points based on your accuracy score.  The higher your accuracy score, the more points you earn for your work.

You can also validate or correct other posts from other users.  This earns you points and helps your accuracy levels as well.

Minimum payout is $10 in Amazon gift cards.  You have to earn 10,000 per $10 gift card.

Click Here to Get Started! You will receive 2000 points for completing sign up and an additional 2000 when you complete your first daily checklist!

Reciept Hog (Not accepting applications for new users)

Receipt Hog helps you get paid to take pictures of your receipts. You can earn up to 100 coins per week from scanning your receipts alone!  The max amount you can cash out is $40 for 6500 (the least amount of coins per dollar).  You can also win coins from their fun slot machine, small surveys based on your receipts, and contests they have each month.

*Click Here to Get Started!

*As of 02/03/2017, currently not accepting new users, but they will put you on a waitlist for when they do decide to open it up to more users:

 

Receipt Hog
Sorry, no spots available 🙁
Hi there, thank you for your interest in Receipt Hog!

As promised, we wanted to let you know where you stand on the wait list. Unfortunately, space is still extremely limited, and there’s no availability at the moment.

If, however, a spot does open up at some point in the future, we will send you an email to let you know (plus a little extra reward for the long wait).


Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience,
— The Receipt Hog Team —

ReceiptPal

ReceiptPal is a receipt scanning app like Receipt Hog, but you can send your e-receipts for online purchases and the points add up faster.  You can earn up to 300 points per week.  I forward all my e-receipts to them from my Amazon purchases and Google Play purchases.  The best exchange of points per dollar is 19000 points for $100 Amazon gift card, Visa gift card, or PayPal cash (but PayPal potentially charges fees for it).  

Another thing to consider:  Receipts over 14 days old when scanned will be rejected.  Make sure to scan all your receipts before they “expire”, not just to reach the 300 point max per week, but also because each scanned receipt that is accepted counts as an entry to their weekly $250 giveaway.

At the end of each month, scan any receipts you have for purchases from that month.  They allow you to scan them up to the 3rd day of the following month but then do not accept any receipts from the previous month after that.  I will scan everything I have the last day of each month so I don’t miss out on potential entries for the $250 giveaway they have for that week.

Snapstar Changes to Earning Amazon Gift Cards

Email from the Snapstar Team:

Dear Lazy Money Guy,

We wanted to give you a heads up that on Tuesday, January 31 we will be removing the Cash Out page.

Instead of this page, you will be able to earn cash (Amazon gift cards) directly from purchasing a certain number of items from participating brands.

In addition, you can still always use your stars to buy sweepstakes entries and win prizes.

Thanks for your attention, and happy snapping!

Maven Social Media Earnings Program

Maven recently started a new feature to earn more.  You can now link your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram).  The more reach you have, the more potential earnings you get.

Here is the email I received (personal information and details have been removed) from Maven’s VP of Marketing and Account Management, Jessica Duncan:

Hi Lazy Money Guy,

Maven has launched a new feature that will allow us to bring you new opportunities to earn money. From time to time, retailers in our network will offer money to members like you if you share products you like from the retailer with your friends and followers. These “sharing events” will happen on an ongoing basis and will be another way to earn at Maven.

The first sharing event could come later this week with ASOS, a fast-fashion, women’s and men’s apparel retailer. We will be offering our members $5-$100 to create a board using products from ASOS and sharing that board on any social network pages you have.

Your earnings will usually be based on how many people follow you in social media.

If you are interested in participating in these sharing events, we will need to obtain the number of followers you have on each of 4 social networks: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram. To make collecting that information easy for you, there are 2 steps as noted in the below images:

1.    Access your profile on MavenX.com. You will see a section labeled “Your Social Accounts” with buttons for each of the 4 networks.

ii_15849f47747dbfc8

2.    Click each network where you have an account.  This will “link” your social account to Maven. Once that’s done, the profile page will automatically obtain the number of friends and followers you have in each network.

ii_15845d9eddb1d197

We expect several more of these sharing events. Please update your profile and keep an eye out for my invitation to participate. And, if you don’t receive an invitation for the ASOS sharing event, don’t worry. We’ll keep you on the list and bring new sharing events to you from other retailers when we have them available.

Of note, the ‘success’ of these campaigns come from successful purchases in your network. The retailers look for ‘reach’ but also conversion. With that said, personal outreach may help you gain those much needed purchases that can result in MORE of these type of opportunities for you! 

Thanks!

Jessica Duncan

VP, Marketing and Account Management

Qmee

Qmee is a program you install on your browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and when you do regular searches on Google, Amazon, or Ebay, it rewards you. It will pull up links to products and stores related to your searches, and when you click on those results, you get paid.

qmee-results

 

You need to have a PayPal account to get paid. I have made over $10 just from regular searches in one month. You can cash out at any amount at any time.

They also offer survey opportunities and coupon codes for purchases of items related to your searches.  The earnings potential continues to grow with them!

Paribus Acquired by Capital One

According to TechCrunch, Paribus was acquired and will be part of their campaign to have price tracking through the use of Capital One’s U.S. Card division (specifically their credit card price protection service).  The Paribus program will still be fully operational while working with Capital One’s efforts to expand their programs and services using Paribus’ technology and algorithms.

I will be posting more updates as I get them directly from Paribus.  They have been busy with the transition to being a part of Capital One, but once the dust settles, I am sure there will be plenty more information.

 

Honey

Honey is a program (they have a website and a Chrome extension you can use) that helps you find great deals and also earns you commission on purchases you make through it.  It finds deals on Amazon, Groupon, Fandango, and other stores, and when you use the Find Savings or Activate options on those deals, you start earning HoneyGold (G). 1000G equals $10.  You get to earn a randomized commission amount from your purchases made through the Honey program.

It runs in the background as you shop and tracks the purchases you make to calculate the HoneyGold earnings.  It adds up fast when you do a lot of shopping.

You can get the rebates and bonuses through the app.  They list online and in-store rebate opportunities.  You can make purchases of the products and services listed in the app to get the rebates they offer.

Shopkick

I really like Shopkick.  It’s a really slick app that shows you all the best items at stores nearby, like Target, Best Buy, Costco, Old Navy, you name it. They also give you points (“kicks”) just for walking into these stores. Then you get free gift cards with the points at Target, Starbucks, Old Navy, Best Buy, etc.

Keep your GPS setting of your phone on, so when you walk into qualifying stores, the app will notify you if you can check in for kicks at that store.  You can also scan barcodes of the products there for even more kicks.  And you can do this at most each visit to the same stores.  The amount of kicks will increase for check ins during some of their promotions, so keep a look out for that as well.

Ibotta

Ibotta is a free app that pays you cash for buying your favorite products. When you redeem your first rebate, you will get an additional $10!  And when you help teammates/friends with rebate goals, you get additional bonuses!  

You unlock rebates, by watching ads or other things, and scan the item you bought and the associated receipt.  It usually takes less than 24 hours for the rebate to be added to your account.  You can cashout at $20, with PayPal, or any one of the many gift cards offered through the app.
