Get paid to shop

There are plenty of ways to shop online and get cash back for it. For example, eBates or SwagBucks both have great shopping programs and reward you for shopping at regular online stores like Amazon, Best Buy, etc.

What about local places like Target or Wal-Mart? Leaving the house, getting groceries… That’s where Ibotta comes in! You can pick out your shopping list before you go, or just look through and find your purchases when you get home. I do it the second way, but you’ll earn more money the first way.

You just scan the barcodes with your mobile phone’s camera through their app (Apple iOS and/or Android) and scan the receipt. It’s really that simple. Here’s a screenshot of my earnings since I got started:


As you can see you can cash out several ways: PayPal, Amazon, Starbucks, and more.

Tapporo – PayPal Proof

Yay for Tapporo – I’ve been paid twice now, once with an Amazon card, and now with PayPal.

I redeemed $5 yesterday and received my PayPal payment within 24 hours.

With Tapporo you can earn money using your Android (and coming soon: Apple) phone or tablet. Watch videos, complete tasks like trying new apps and games, or filling out surveys, as well as many other tasks. It’s a fantastic app and with GiftHulk behind it, it’s trustworthy.

Here is a link to the official Tapporo website for more information.

If you decide to sign up and try it, make sure you use the invite code TAPJB1597 and we’ll both get a bonus.


A New Android App

I’m going to go ahead and post about this one because of the company that owns it. I’ll follow up with payment proof specific to the app once I have it.

The app is Tapporo – It exists in the Google Play Store, it’s very user friendly, and best of all it is owned by GiftHulk! Here’s a direct link to the Tapporo website.

GiftHulk is fantastic on its own. Having an Android app (iOS users: keep your eye out for an update later on!) made by them is great. They have been great to me as a user for their site, and their support is always very friendly and helpful.

To quote their welcome email: “Earn ORO coins for engaging with exciting brands (ORO coins = Tapporo currency).”

Right now, if you sign up using my invite code, you get 250 ORO coins ($0.25 in value). I don’t know if this will change in the future, but that’s correct at the time of this post.

The invite code I have is: TAPJB1597

If you sign up after reading about the app here, I do hope that you’ll use my code. It helps both of us.

Right now you can earn Amazon, PayPal, and many other rewards by watching videos, completing offers, etc.

Happy earning! There’s still some time for holiday shopping.

Getting paid to watch videos


What if you could get paid to watch short commercials (advertisements)?

If you think about it, you’re already paying your cable company (or Hulu) to make you watch commercials. You watch ads on YouTube and just about everything else now, and you get nothing for it. Now you can get paid for your time.

The company making this possible is called Jingit.

From Jingit‘s website: “Jingit™ is the action of giving your time and attention in exchange for real money… not “virtual currency” or “points”.

Like some other posts I’ve made tonight, this one is available via your mobile phone. It is available for both Android and iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc), and it is also available on your computer.

They are a new site, so right now you have two main payment options: You can spend your money in their music store, called musicme. Alternatively, they also offer a prepaid Visa card through a partnership with U.S. Bank, and you can cash out directly to this card.

Their login system also uses Facebook, which keeps things simple. You know you wouldn’t remember your password anyway.

How to make money online

Updated on April 3, 2015.

Everybody wants to know how to make money online. Money may not buy happiness but it buys food and a whole lot of fun stuff.

There is money to be made in so many different areas of the internet. Hosting, SEO, advertisements, and so many other ways.

The average person doesn’t have time to start a hosting company, or build up SEO status, they just want to pull in some extra spending money. Christmas is around the corner, and this is where a lot of people are going to be looking to make and spend extra cash.

If any of this sounds about right for you, I recommend checking out a few different types of sites. I recommend that you focus on only one of each type of site to get the best results from each.

This is the real deal. This isn’t that fake crap you find on the eBook sites, and you don’t have to pay to join.

First, check out a GPT site such as one of these three to see which one best suits your tastes:

InstaGC — Instant gift card payments for Starbucks, Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and more.

CashCrate — Cash (Check/Cheque) payout at $20, other prize types/options available (Amazon, Starbucks, etc.)

Second, check out a search and win site. This is great because everybody uses search engines, so why not get paid for it?

SwagBucks — Search & Win option with multiple other ways to earn, and multiple prize options available (Amazon, eBay, and countless others…)

ZoomBucks — Another Search & Win site with tons of prizes and ways to earn. Edit August 5, 2016: Zoombucks has been replaced by Grabpoints. Check out my post about it here!

Third, check out a good survey site. I don’t mean the long, horrible surveys that never seem to end. This group has a great setup:

InstantCashSweepstakes — You’re not going to get paid for every survey, but they’re quick and easy. You win at random, and you can win in the daily and 4-hour drawings. Cash out at $2, pays via PayPal.

PaidViewpoint — Get paid for every survey. Cash out at $15, pays via PayPal.

Fifth, if you use a smart phone, you should check out:

Tapporo — This is now also available for iPhone/iOS users, as well as Android users. Just download the app Tapporo on your device and get paid to download and try new apps, play games, watch videos, and more. Remember to use this coupon/invite code to get started with a startup bonus: TAPJB1597
