How I’m Making Money this New Year

Good Afternoon! I hope your new year is off to a great start. Whenever the new year starts I like to find some ways to make a little extra cash. Being a college student, I am spending and budgeting any money I make. I have responsibilities to take care of with the money I earn from my job. It is nice to have some extra cash that I can use to buy makeup and clothes. I have made a good amount of money using some of these methods and wanted to share them. Let me know if you have tried any of these before!

 1. Ebates– This site is the real deal. This site has been featured on news shows, online, and even commercials. I love love love this site. Screen Shot 2015-12-30 at 12.38.27 PMBasically you get paid whenever you shop online. The sites has thousands of brands to choose from: Macys, Victoria’s Secret, Nordstrom, Gap, and much more. All you have to do is search on the website for the store you are shopping at and click the link (which takes you straight to the website) and shop! Literally the easiest way to make money! You can either be paid through a check or gift cards. I have received 7 checks so far and am currently about to get another (check).
  • The site sends a check every couple of months 
  • Rate 10
    • The site chose when I got the check
    • Rate 10

    2. Swag bucks– I think this is #1 on everyone’s list. This site is literally amazing. You can do so many things to earn points which later can be redeemed for sweepstakes or gift cards. You however do not receive actual dollar bills or checks. Swagbucks runs off a point system.  I have received around 16 gift cards from Swagbucks. When I got my first gift card I thought it would come in the mail and take forever. However, within a day I received an egift card for the store I seleswagcted . This has been done with all my gift cards. The way I get my points is by doing the daily poll and completing surveys. I also search and watch videos for easy Swagbucks. Rarely I will buy or sign up for something where I can earn more Swagbucks for those offers. One thing that I like about this site is that it is not a must that you complete the surveys. This site allows me the opportunity to earn rewards without always having to complete a survey.
    • It takes me around 1 month to earn a giftcard. 
    • Rate: 10

    Money from the grocery store/Walking into a store/Scanning your receipt:

    Ibotta-This app is the rebate queen without having to mail in the rebate. The app is super easy to use and is worth it! All you do is find products that you purchased in store, snap a picture of your receipt, and earn. You can find rebates from stores like: Walmart, Target, Macy’s, Old Navy, and even Sephora (for my makeup lovers). YOU EVEN EARN $5 FOR JUST SIGNING UP!!!! Use my code UMHXBHV

    Checkout51-Another rebate app! Unlike Ibotta, you don’t have to choose a store. Just find the products and take a picture of your receipt. I love this app, because you get a check instead of a gift card. Real Money!!

    Shopkick– If scanning grocery’s and taking pictures of receipts isn’t for you, then just walking into a store and clicking this app is for you! Super Easy! You earn points called “kicks” for walking through the door of select stores. Once you earn enough kicks you cash your credits out for gift cards to places like: Target, Amazon, Apple, Walmart, and Nike. This one can earn you gift cards pretty fast. Click here to sign up

    Receipt Hog- This app is by far my favorite app to make quick easy money. All you have to do is take a picture of any receipt. ANY RECEIPT!!! I can’t say enough good things about this app. You can only earn Amazon or Paypal gift cards. I have cashed out many times on this app.

    Selling Clothes/ Shoes/ Electronics/ ANYTHING  
    Poshmark & Merci– Are apps that I use to make money by selling my clothes, shoes, and accessories. I like beingFullSizeRender (6) able to control and interact with people with my personal items. I can better explain to them or ask them questions personally. Thevibe on these apps are amazing and everyoIMG_7519ne is so friendly. Each app has an advantage over the other. The only bad thing is that poshmarktakes 20% of what you make which can be lot for listing priced low. However Mercari does not take any percentage from your earnings. But when it comes to shipping, Poshmark has a flat rate of $4.99 on every order where as Mercari has different prices for different sized items. But both sites are amazing and I have earned money from both.
     Sign up w/my referral code:
    Posmark & get $5: BYHER 
                                                   Mercari & get $2:Kev986
