Simple Apps to Earn Extra Cash

They work.

Are you in need of some extra cash? Or maybe you want a little side money for the holidays. Have you ever thought about ways you could earn cash online? I know I have and I have actually found a couple different ones that worked for me. The four apps I’m going to recommend are all available on the App Store.


Acorns is a simple investing app that allows users to invest and save for the future. You can make one time deposits or have them reoccurring. 

One way I found that you could make money using this app is by a program they call Found Money. The way Found Money works is they have products on the app like iTunes that will either give you a set amount of money or a percent of what you spend back. Acorns has over one hundred different offers available to get money back. So for example when I bought a song off of iTunes for $.99, I got $.03 back. The only catch is that it takes up to 120 business days for the money to be put into your acorns account.


A next app requires no purchase for you to make money. LifePoints is a simple app that rewards users for completing surveys. If you complete a survey, you are rewarded with “lifepoints” which can be redeemed for cash through PayPal or you can choose to spend our points on gift cards from Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Starbucks, or Nordstrom. 

This app does pay you when you redeem your points, but the only problem is there will be surveys that you get screened out of or the app malfunctions and you won’t be your points. If you are screened out, you receive entries into a sweepstakes that takes place every quarter. You could potentially win $2000 from the sweepstakes drawing. 


blackjack is an app that “pays you to walk,” or so they claim. The more you walk outside, the more "sweatcoins" you earn. The app is free to use and basically pays people to get healthy. It keeps track of how many steps you take a day and lets you see how many your friends are taking as well. This lets you turn walking into a healthy competition.

The problem with Sweatcoin is that the coins you earn are only redeemed through random products that they frequently change or through gift cards to Starbucks, Netflix, or Nike. But you would need to walk miles upon miles to get enough to receive the gift cards. 

They also give $5 through PayPal for every five people users get to also sign up for Sweatcoin. If you decide to sign up, feel free to use my Sweatcoin referral link.

Lucky Day

The final app I want to mention is Lucky Day. This app rewards you multiple ways. There’s daily free scratchers, lottery, and raffle ticket drawings. You win either money or tokens. The tokens can be redeemed for gift cards or PayPal money. 

You can also use your tokens to win or lose blackjack games. This app is great because it gives you multiple ways to win and unlike the other apps that make between 3 to 10 business days to receive your PayPal money, Lucky Day sends it right away and you have your money within 10 minutes.

If you decide to sign up for this completely free app, use my code in the picture I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to read this, I hope I was able to help you find a few days here and there to fill your pockets.
