Times are still hard for people all across the world. Finances are a struggle for so many. The good news is that there are a ton of ways to make money right from your phone! From money back on groceries and other purchases to taking quick surveys and playing games. There are a lot of options out there! The best part, they’re all FREE and easy to use.

Cash Back:


iBotta offers cashback from in-store retailers and online. Their platform is super simple, too! They have multiple cash-back options and you can cash out at as little as $20. They offer gift cards, PayPal, and direct deposits to your bank. I personally have gotten almost $800 back using this app. All you have to do is select the offers you want to redeem and scan your receipt. Most receipts payout immediately or within a few minutes. Some stores do require you to add your loyalty card. iBotta will update your account within a couple of days.

FetchRewards is probably the easiest to use. With a variety of gift cards you can redeem, I’m sure you can find just what you’re looking for! All you have to do for this one is scan your receipts. Currently, the least you’ll get from a receipt is 25 points. They add up really quickly because you can also redeem online receipts as well as fast food, restaurant, and gas station receipts. You can start cashing out at as little as $3.

Dosh is very similar to Drop. The biggest difference is cashing out. Dosh transfers to your bank after you have reached $25. Everything else is pretty much the same, though. You pick from their partners and link your cards to your account. Then you just let the cash flow in!
