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.

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% 
Wholesale Clubs: .10% 

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.

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.

Click Here to Download the App then enter code “PRBKHE” at signup for an additional 500 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!
