The holiday season can be a great time to earn a few extra bucks, simply by maximizing on the money you are already spending. Here are a few ideas on how to get cash back and make money this holiday season!
1. Make Money While Grocery Shopping
Did you know you can install apps on your phone that will earn you cash back while you do your grocery shopping? Most of them only take a few minutes to check before or after each shopping trip! Here are a few of my favorites:
:: Ibotta – Super simple to use! Just buy your normal grocery items, submit your receipt and get cash back for select items.
:: Saving Star – Register your grocery loyalty cards, redeem offers and then shop. Saving Star automatically rewards you for buying items in the offers you redeemed.
:: Checkout 51 – Check their weekly list before you shop. After you shop, submit your receipt and get paid. Any receipt over $60 earns you a chance to win $500.
2. Make Money While Shopping Online
If you sign up for Ebates you’ll get $10 cash back! Then share your link with friends and family on your social media or by email and you’ll get $25 for everyone who signs up and makes their first purchase.
Ebates are offered to many online sites where you might even be buying Christmas gifts this year. Most offer somewhere in the 5-10% cash back range, but some, like the Entertainment Book, earn you a whopping 17.5% cash back!!!
3. Sign up for a New Credit Card
Many credit cards will offer you sign-up bonuses. For instance, Discover is offering $50 statement credit to new customers—and there is not even a requirement on how much you need to spend to earn the credit.
4. Take Surveys
If you have a little extra time in the morning or evenings, sign up for a few quick survey opportunities. You can earn points to redeem gift cards or other prizes.
- i-Say Panelists take surveys and accumulate points to redeem rewards such as a gift card.
- Survey Download gives you an opportunity to earn an iPad for your thoughts.
- VIP Voice enters you into a $1000 Registration Sweepstakes just for registering . For each survey you complete, you will earn VIP points.
