So normally I would be predisposed to write about financial advice, but I did mention before that I want to talk about adventure. If you are going to go on an adventure, then you need money. Luckily for me and Big Doug, we retired, so we don’t really have a need to make money now. So this is for you young folks!
If I remember correctly, one of the things holding me back from my adventures in the past was a lack of funds. That was frustrating, but things sure have changed today! There are a ton of new ways to make money, and they’re sitting in your pocket. Just about everyone has a smart phone today, and with smart phones, there are countless apps to download. Did you know there are tons of downloadable apps that can make you money?
Spoiler alert! I just found out about this, so I’m writing about it! Feel free to comment and let me know if I missed any supper important ones since this list isn’t all inclusive.
The Ibotta app pretty much blew my mind. It’s so easy to make money on it, and all you have to do is spend like you normally would. You can download the app for free. Next time you go shopping, take a picture of your receipt with the app. It will automatically notify you about any rebates or discounts it can offer on the products you purchased. It will load that money into an account on Ibotta, and you are free to transfer it out.
Just like that, you can get discounts and rebates on your regular purchases. Ibotta can handle this because they are collecting consumer data, so the money isn’t really coming from nowhere. They’re making money off of your information!
While I’m not a fan of the name, Swagbucks is definitely a solid app to download, especially if you like taking surveys. Here is how it works. With the app, you can take any number of surveys, and you’ll receive compensation for your answers. Be prepared to take questions about products, businesses, and your shopping habits.
Surveys on the Go
So if you haven’t guessed, this is another survey app. This app is enormous, however. It is used by tons of different organizations to gather data on the common man and woman. That means the survey questions are pretty varied, and you can have a fun time looking for new topics. On top of that, they are willing to pay you for your answers.
