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.

With ShopKick installed on your phone, you can get paid just to shop in local stores, scan products from your phone, etc.

Target, for example: After a couple of visits I went back with a few gift cards and they scanned in the gift cards from my phone.

It’s pretty convenient if you’re already going outside to shop. Click to sign up and try it out.

GiftHulk Payment June 2012

It’s coming up on the end of the month, and I remembered that I ordered an Amazon card from GiftHulk.

GiftHulk is still paying out as of June 2012. This time they put the code for Amazon in my account’s order history instead of emailing me, but I’m glad that I received it.

I opted in for an Amazon card, but they also have PayPal, as well as a lot of other great gift card options.

Click the thumbnail to see the full image. I intentionally left out the code number, but nice try. ;)

Click here to sign up, or click the banner below. It’s a great site with tons of great features (Search & Win, daily treasure box, offer walls, and more). You can use the code “freeskrilla” when you sign up through my link to get 20 free hulk coins. Once you’ve joined, go to the “Fountain of Youth” to put the code in.

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
