Our post from earlier this week focused on apps that can help you save money during your holiday shopping this year. Many of them allow you to browse coupons, compare prices, and ensure you are getting the best deal possible all while on the go. I also wanted to introduce you to some of my favorite apps that can help earn you extra cash during this holiday season.
Jingit- Jingit is a website that offers several different ways to earn. You can earn cash directly from the website or partner websites by watching ads. Download the app and you can earn while you are out shopping. Use the app to plan your shopping trip and look for products that you may be purchasing. Reserve offers available for items you plan on purchasing. You can also earn cash by snapping a picture of your receipt and uploading it. Using the app to check-in while at your favorites stores and scan barcodes on participating items can also earn you cash. Once you earn points, the points are added to your JingIt Visa Debit Card to be redeemed anywhere Visa is accepted.
Shopkick- This shopping app is like the foursquare of shopping, offering reward points for checking in when you are at your favorite stores. Sometimes you can earn reward points for scanning items in stores. The app uses your GPS location to know what store you are shopping in and then offers coupons which can save you money while shopping too. Reward points can be redeemed for a wide variety of gift cards for your favorite stores.
Gigwalk-Gigwalk basically offers tasks that you can accept and get paid to complete. Many of these tasks are things you can do while you are out holiday shopping. Taking pictures of products, reviewing restaurants, or verifying location of a business are all types of task you might come across. Payment is made through Paypal.
Field Agent-This app turns you into a type of mystery shopper. Many of the assignments offered through the app are at your favorite stores where you may be during your holiday shopping. Many of the jobs require you to go to a specific store, take pictures of a specific display in the store, and answer some brief questions about the display. Search through the assignments before heading out and you may find some you can complete during your shopping trip. Payment is made through Paypal.
Checkpoints- Log into your Checkpoint App when you visit a store. The app will show you participating items in that specific store that can be scanned to earn reward points. Over 2 million store locations are in the app making it an easy way to earn some extra cash while out shopping. Reward points can be redeemed for a variety pf prizes or gift cards.
