out there that will pay you. Whether it’s in cash

of the top apps out there that pay you money. Keep in mind that all of these apps will pay out different amounts and in different ways, so find the one that’s going to work best with your lifestyle and goals. We’ll have sign-up links
to all of these apps in the description box down
below for you to check out, and don’t forget to hit
that subscribe button while you’re there. Rakuten. If you love online shopping,
this is an app that you need. Rakuten is an app that
pays you free cash back, up to 12%, just for
making online purchases like you normally would. All you have to do is
download the Rakuten app, and log in and search for
your favorite retailer that you’d like to shop with. There are tons of stores
you’d shop with anyway, like Amazon, Macy’s, and Nike. Each store has a different
cash back percentage. Then you click the shop icon, and you are taken directly
to that store’s website. Then you shop like normal, and check out. Since you followed
Rakuten’s link to check out, you will get that cash back
amount added to your account. It’s really that easy, and
you’re earning cash back on purchases that you’d be making anyway. This is an app that I always
use when I’m online shopping. I’ve even used Rakuten to
book a hotel stay at Hilton for a recent trip to Disneyland. Once I took the trip, the cash back was paid
out to me with PayPal, and I took the cash back that I earned and added it to our vacation
fund for our next trip. To get started with Rakuten, you can check out the link
in the description box below for a free $10 signup bonus. Swagbucks is a rewards program that has paid out over
$385 million in cash and free gift cards to
its users since 2010. With Swagbucks, you can
create a free account and begin earning rewards
points, called Swagbucks, which you can redeem for PayPal cash, or gift cards to places like
Amazon, Home Depot, and Target. There are many different ways to use the Swagbucks app to earn points, including taking surveys, watching videos, getting cash back from online shopping, using the Swagbucks search
engine, playing games, and buying gift cards through Swagbucks. Now, you won’t get rich from this app, but you can earn free gift cards for completing simple tasks. You can use your earnings to
treat yourself with a gift card to one of your favorite stores, or save up to help offset
the cost of holiday and birthday gifts throughout the year. One of my favorite online
shopping apps to use is Honey. Honey is a browser
extension that us can use to make sure you’re getting the best deal when online shopping. Honey finds coupon codes that you can use to receive a discount, and it also tracks the price of an item that you’re looking to purchase. You can even earn cash back
on purchases with Honey. I recently used Honey when making a large furniture purchase. The website said that the sectional that I was
browsing was on sale, but I wondered how good
of a sale this truly was. So I looked it up with my Honey extension. Honey showed me a graph of the price over the last four months, and I saw that the current
price of the sectional was the lowest it’s been in awhile. So I decided to make the purchase. Honey makes it easy to save money with applying coupon codes and tracking the cost of online items to ensure that you’re getting a deal. And, getting cash back on
these purchases with Honey is another great benefit. Ibotta is an app that gives
you cash back for shopping, and here’s how it works. Before you shop, you can
browse the Ibotta app and add offers to qualify for cash back. Then you shop online or in store, and when you check out, you can
take a photo of your receipt and Ibotta will pay you in cash back. Ibotta has become immensely popular because it extends to grocery brands. To get started with Ibotta,
you can get a $10 bonus just for signing up with the
link in the description box. And, Ibotta also has an affiliate program. Your friend gets a $10
sign-up bonus as well, and Ibotta pays you $5 more
for each friend you refer. Your earnings potential is unlimited, which isn’t bad considering you’re helping friends save money, and handing them an extra
$10 at the same time. If you’re looking to lose weight
and make some extra money, check out the app HealthyWage. This app pays you to lose
weight and reach your goals. To use HealthyWage, first
you calculate your prize, or, how much you could earn
based on your current weight and the amount you want to lose. Then you place your bet, set a timeline, and start losing weight. If you reach your goal,
you’ll win the prize you calculated in the beginning, and if not, you lose your money. You can also participate in a team or company challenge
with friends and family. The more weight you lose, and the more you’re willing to bet, the more you can win. So, if you’re trying to be
motivated to lose weight, betting real money on it
with the app HealthyWage could be the perfect combination. If you want to earn a little extra money with doing no work at all, you could download the Nielsen app. Nielsen is a T.V. ratings company that will pay you up to $50 a year to download and keep their
app on your smartphone. The app tracks your Internet usage, so it will know what websites you visit, and how long you’re on them. But, they don’t collect
use I.D.s and passwords, and the data that they collect is completely anonymous,
and not linked to your name. Nielsen packages all of the
information they collect to provide statistics and
trends on Internet usage and T.V. viewership. They make money by selling this research to companies wanting to understand different demographics and market trends. And your name and personal information is kept completely anonymous. In addition to cash rewards, you’ll be entered in to the
Nielsen monthly sweepstakes for a chance to earn even
more money and prizes. If you’re looking to start a side hustle, Instacart is a great app to use. Instacart is a grocery delivery service. Customers order their products online, and Instacart shoppers
prepare their orders for pickup or delivery. As a full service shopper, you work as an independent contractor with a flexible schedule. You’ll shop for the
products your customers want and then deliver them to their address. If you’d rather do the shopping than the delivery portion, you can apply to be an in-store shopper. With this part time position, you get a flexible schedule,
and you don’t need a vehicle. You’ll prepare your customer’s orders for them to pick up in the store. With either position, you
can make $10 to $15 per hour, and get paid via direct deposit. But, full-service shoppers
have the potential to make more from receiving tips. InboxDollars is a survey app that pays you money for taking surveys. Their app will pay you for
opening and skimming e-mails, and answering simple surveys. There’s also a $5 signup
bonus that you can grab with the link in the
description box below. InboxDollars works on a cash-only system, so you don’t have to worry
about converting points to cash, or being compensated in gift cards. And, according to the web site, they’ve paid out over $57 million to users who have completed
surveys over the years. We found that after the
initial $5 bonus, however, many of the surveys did
not pay out a ton of money, which was kind of a bummer. But if you do have spare time, and don’t mind clicking around
and answering questions, you can still earn a few bucks, which is better than nothing. Whether it’s earning gift cards to use for extra fun money, or earning a legit
side-hustle income in cash, there are many different apps out there that could help you earn money. Don’t forget to check out the links to all of these apps in the
description box down below, and if you want to learn
