Who could use some extra money?
Most folks, probably. I’ve stumbled upon a gold mine here and in true Drink Coffee & Prosper fashion, I MUST share it! Did you know you can get paid by apps? Yes, apps! Like, apps on your cell phone.
Do simple tasks, take surveys, share your opinion, and other little easy things to make money from mobile applications. I’ll show you how!
Here’s my roundup of 5 apps to earn you extra money:
Sell your photos! You name your price and list photos for sale with this app. Easy as that!
Poshmark is the ish! I’ve sold SO MANY THINGS with the app. What’s more? I got followers really, really fast, like thousands within my first month. I had a friend who was super savvy with the app and taught me all her tricks. One of them: to get followers quickly, follow people and they follow you back. You might have heard of this, it’s called the follow for follow method.
People use it on social media to get followers fast. When you look on Poshmark, it’s not unusual to see users with 50K or 80K followers and your jaw will drop but..you’ll also see that they are following just as many followers as they have. This tells you they are using follow for follow to gain followers. Little trick.
Anyway, you can use Poshmark to list your new or used items. I used to use it as an alternate store channel for my former online retail store. I would sell around 5-10 items a month without doing a thing. It was the easiest thing ever. Check them out!
An oldie but goodie. Swagbucks is AWESOME for rewards. Complete your purchases through the site and get rewarded. Can’t get much easier than that. I even recently read a pin from a blogger who claimed her $500 Amazon gift card which she used for Christmas shopping. Can you imagine?
Right now, they are offering triple cash back too! Check out this site here.
Pollbuzzer is where it’s at! I used to use this site all the time before. I’m gonna get back into it soon. They pay you $1 for quick, simple surveys. You can get notifications right to your cell phone, answer easy surveys, and get paid. It’s free to get started and those dollars add up! You get paid via PayPal.
Gigwalk pays you to do little micro gigs right from your cell phone. Kinda like Fiverr but better!! Get paid to do things like taking photos of store displays, testing mobile apps, etc. Earn $6-$220 per gig (according to Digitalsynopsis.com).
These bonus sites will help you top off your earnings super fast.

- IPSOS Panel: I’ve talked about IPSOS before. You’re gonna love this survey site. Get paid to share your opinions. Tons of offers, perfect for your downtime this holiday season.
- Shoptracker: Shoptracker by Harris Poll Online, one of the oldest, most well-respected survey companies (50+ years in business) rewards you for just 2 minutes of your time. You will be on your way to your first gift card reward in no time. This is a newer site that I’ve found that looks like so much fun. Full disclosure, I have not tried it yet but I WILL BE! What sold me is that they are in partnership with Harris Poll, which is an awesome survey site. Check it out here.
- Cashback Research is another newer site. Get paid up to $75 per survey. S-E-V-E-N-T-Y F-I-V-E dollars per survey. Unheard of! Plus, they offer studies where they pay even higher, $150 per study. You MUST check out this survey site. The real deal!
