Mobile Performance Meter

Mobile Performance Meter is an app that run in the background of your phone and reward points. You can get around $5-10 in gift cards per month per phone when using it.  May require that your phone have a data plan.  I have used the app on phones without a data plan, but some friends are telling me it hasn’t worked for them.  I know their support team has told me they are very picky about not only what phones they approve but also locations and other factors to approve activating the accounts to start earning points.

You can earn anywhere from 10-30 points per day.  I wait till I have earned 500 points to cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card.  It costs more points per dollar if you cash out less than 500 points.

Qriket

Qriket is a game where you spin the wheel to earn random amounts of money.  You choose either blue or yellow and if the wheel ends up on your color, you win the amount they indicate in the center of the wheel.  I usually win $0.05 every few spins, but I have seen potential amounts to win as high as $1,000!  You can also challenge others to win even more!

75spinqriketchallenge

It’s a little slower earner compared to others as it is not guaranteed a win every spin, but it is fun to spin the wheel and see the winnings add up.  You can also earn spins from watching different ads.  I usually earn 10 spins per day from the ads.

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.

WHAFF

WHAFF is an app that pays to download and run apps, which I use like CashPirate but I still use both. It sets up your account by logging in with your Facebook account.  It pays $0.05-$0.10 per app download that you open, if it is in their premium list. It then pays for daily use of 4 minutes or more, and a daily keep it on your phone payment. Plus you get paid for using apps daily that you might already be using! After it is done paying out for use and keeping it on your phone, you can uninstall the apps you don’t want to keep using.  Watch out for having a VPN or anything like that running on your phone at the same time as using this app!

Spare5

Spare5 is a site and iOS app for completing different tasks, like writing, reviewing, editing, rating, tagging, and other tasks.  The more tasks completed, the more “XP” you earn, which makes you more valuable for higher paying tasks to come up.  The money adds up fast and the more I do, the more tasks come up, and the higher those tasks pay!

You can cash out when you reach $5 or more!

SurveyCow

SurveyCow is a lock screen app that asks one question every time you unlock your phone.  It will award points per successful question answered.

They pay in “Beef” points.  Points vary depending on the questions asked.

It is one of the easier lockscreen apps for me and I have been making about 1000 Beef points per week.

10,000 Beef points = $10.00

Use code 6370124589 for an extra 250 Beef Points when signing up!

If you receive the same question multiple times, it means it hasn’t registered the answer in their system, and suggest you check your network connection.  I usually go into the app and see if it is connected to my account.  The issue isn’t common and they are working on a resolution to it.

CashPirate

CashPirate is an app that gives coins from downloading and running apps as well as other offers. Download the apps they list, run them, and get coins!  Some apps can be installed and opened for 30 seconds then uninstalled to earn coins.  Others require downloading, running for a minute or two, and keeping on your phone for 3 days to earn coins.  I personally put notes on my calendar to go back to the 3 day apps and either remove them or keep the ones I like.

They also offer doing surveys for coins.  The surveys will say how long they usually take and the number of points awarded for completed surveys.

I cash out at $5 increments since it is the best value of coins.

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.

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.

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!

ChargerPay

ChargerPay runs when you are charging your phone/tablet and not using it.  It plays ads during that time and starts accruing points.  Every 100,000 points pays $5 in gift cards (I always prefer Amazon gift cards).  

I have reached 10,000 points/day usually (running it on two phones and a tablet).  I have gotten paid over $15/month since using it. I use an app with it to keep the screen on all the time as well as diminish the screen brightness to use less power, called Screen On.  Without it, usually the screen will time out after 30 minutes and the points stop accruing until I turn the screen back on.

FreeEats is so easy to make a little extra money from. Basically you sign up, register your phone number to receive periodic texts from them. Each text you receive is worth at least $0.25!!! And they pay even more when you complete tasks like downloading an app or checking out a website. But if you don’t want to do any of that, you still get paid for the text you received. They give an extra $1 for signing up. All payments are made immediately to your PayPal account, so if you don’t have one, get one!
