With social distancing still in full effect, many have lost their jobs or are having to take a leave of absence. This can put a lot of people in a bad place financially. But we’re here to help.
There are many ways to earn money during this time of social distancing. Certain chain stores like Walmart and HEB are hiring people to stock groceries due to the large demand. But if you have a weak immune system or kids at home, the thought of going into the public is probably scary.
So we’ve created a list of ideas on how to make money without leaving the house. This is specifically a list of ways to make extra money through apps on your phone! These are simply money making apps you can use while watching your favorite show or playing with you kids!
1. Google Opinion Rewards
This is a quick survey app. It automatically drops money into your PayPal account every time you hit $2. It asks you a random question every few days and pays about 25 cents to one dollar per question. It has never taken me longer than 30 seconds to complete a question and it notifies you any time there is a new question, so you don’t have to put much thought into it. It’s pretty basic, but for someone who believes every penny counts, this is for you.
This is another survey app that is incredibly easy. I earned my first $10 within an hour (and that was in between tending to kids so it really didn’t take long at all). It has a few daily featured short surveys that will give you a payout even if you don’t qualify to complete it and then some longer surveys with bigger payouts ($10-$20!). You can cash out after every $10, and each payout is easy to achieve.
This is a multi-use app to make money. You can take surveys, watch ads (or “watch” while you clean the house like me), answer short questionnaires, etc. This app gives gift cards as rewards, but they have them for stores that people spend money at every day like Walmart, Amazon, and Starbucks.
This app has short surveys with immediate payouts. That’s what made this app appealing to me. As soon as you finish the survey, the exact amount you earn goes into your paypal account. These surveys range from 50 cents to ten dollars so it’s definitely worth it! They have you type out your answers which is also easy to do with talk to text options, making it even a hands free option for you!
5. Zap Surveys
This is a survey app that cashes out at every $20, which initially was a turnoff, but I was able to cash out super fast. They offer daily surveys, polls, specific location surveys, and rebates. So whether you choose to shop online and get cash back or sit down and do a quick survey, it is easy to build up some quick cash!
This survey app tells you exactly how much you get for each survey before you pick it. It also tells you the topics so you can choose one that’s actually appealing to you. That’s what really made me like this app. They also have cash back for shopping through their app. You can cash out each time you reach $5 whether through paypal or gift card!
This is a video survey app. Take a 30 second video of you giving your opinion of something and earn cash! This is SUPER easy, and surveys usually pay between 50 cents to 5 dollars. They upload new surveys every day. You can cash out at $15!
8. Make Money
This app pays you to do a large number of tasks. From playing games, to watching videos, downloading apps and testing them out, and taking surveys, this is a fun way to make money due to the broad spectrum of options. And you can cash out every time you reach $5!
9. Money App
This is just like the Make Money app. They pay you to do a large number of tasks. From playing games, to watching videos, downloading apps and testing them out, and taking surveys, this is a fun way to make money due to the broad spectrum of options. And you can cash out every time you reach $5!
10. Survey Junkie
This is a basic survey app. You can cash out at $10 which can be reached pretty quick. Most surveys take about 15 minutes, which could easily be knocked out while watching shows.
These are honestly just a few options. There are HUNDREDS of apps that do payouts just like these. But i can personally vouch for these ten because I use them myself! Give some of them a shot while you’re binge watching your favorite show! (Maybe some of the new Tiger King content!)
