Websites & Apps

Spread the love

Since we live off of one income, I have had to find creative ways to make extra cash. I use the following apps and websites all year – even though I don’t donate a lot of time to any of them. I am able to cash my point in for Christmas money/gift cards. Every little bit helps!


I earn free gift cards by using Swagbucks. I really don’t do much with it – I used to and back then I would receive a $25 gift card once a month. Now it is every few months that I receive a $25 gift card.

I do all my searches through this site. Why search through google when you can earn money to search? I also answer a daily poll and check the daily deal. The only other thing I do is schedule my hotels through this site. It is only a few dollars a month but it adds up at the end of the year and is a great way to get presents!

If you would like more information, contact me. I would happily share other ways to earn swagbucks. If you would like to sign up, use my link and we will both earn a bonus $3 when you earn 300 points.


Just like Swagbucks, MyPoints can be used to earn free gift cards. You can do as little or as much as you want to earn points. I open daily emails – about five a day – and click on the link. Each email/link is about 5 pts. I typically print my coupons from this site. You earn points for printing and redeeming the coupons. Occasionally, I do the Daily 5 which includes clicking on a few links and a daily poll.

Shopkick app

I earn gift cards just by opening the app prior to walking into stores like Walmart and Target. You can also scan items at the store to earn more point. Typically prior to bed, I open the app, click on the discover tab and open each “book.” I earn 1 kick for clicking the surprise button.

If you would like to sign up, use my link and we will both earn 250 kicks when you walk-in a store or scan at a store. Use code FUN661880 or click

Panel App

Like the Shopkick App, I earn gift cards by allowing the Panel App track my gps. I answer questions/surveys as to my locations and earn points.

If you would like to sign up,

Fetch Rewards

This app may be the easiest app. I literally scan in my grocery receipts and they match my purchases to offers which provide me points. I earn gift cards just by scanning my receipts!

If you would like to sign up, use my link and we will both earn 1,500 fetch points when you complete one receipt. Use code RB8BK or click
