Below are some additional apps that could net you free money but with a tad more effort than those above!

TRIM – ~$10/mo

If you’ve ever noticed your cable bill rising and you don’t know what to do about it, let TRIM handle the rest.  Not only can you link your cable/internet bill to the service, but they’ll also automatically negotiate a better cable rate.  They’ve also introduced SiriusXM and Home Security bill negotiation as well.

 Sign up to TRIM (Get Approximately $10/mo off your cable bill)

SPENT Money – $10

This app operates as an expense report, as in you’ll see all of the transactions you’ve made in one place and easily keep records (including scannable receipts) of your purchases.  First, you’ll have to link your applicable credit/debit card(s).

The best part of this app is that there are cash back opportunities with large brands like Amazon, Walgreens, and Starbucks!  Although not a huge percentage of cash back, it’s virtually free money…including the $10 Bonus after your first cash back eligible purchase!  Also available are local cash back opportunities, but you’ll have to look around through the app to find them.


Sign up for SPENT ($10 Bonus)

Drop – $5 in Gift Cards

Working the same way as Spent, the app Drop is a points-based version, whereas you can shop at selected merchants like Dunkin Donuts or Target, for example, and you’ll earn points for shopping there.

Earn enough points for every dollar spent, and redeem them for gift cards!  Earn more substantial point bonuses when you sign up for unique offers found on the Drop dashboard.

Drop Rewards App

Sign up for DROP ($5 in Gift Cards)

DOSH – $5

One of the more popular apps offers a significant amount of cash back opportunities, including local ones.  Many of the merchants included like Papa Johns, Denny’s, and Chili’s have decent cash back returns.

DOSH also is a bit different considering their opportunities with Hotels.  You can earn up to 250 Dollars just by staying at a Hotel for a few days!  Again all you have to do is link your credit/debit card(s), and you’ll be automatically included in these offers.

Earny – Depends on Shopping Habits

If you spend money, you can get some money back by protecting yourself through price changes shortly after.  For example, if you bought a mattress for $500 on day 1, but on day 2 the mattress goes on sale for $50 less, you can get that $50 back (depending on the online store’s policy).  Let Earny handle these types of transactions by accessing your digital receipts.  It’s super easy to sign up and many credit cards have this protection included!

Survey Junkie – $1

Taking surveys are an easy way to make money…but not all of them are enjoyable or user-friendly.  Enter Survey Junkie, the marketplace of easy to take surveys that will reward you instantly!  Taking a basic intro survey will net you a $1 credit into your account.

Arcadia Power – Free Wind Energy

For select areas, you can swap out your current electric bill for 50% Wind Energy at no extra charge to your electric bill.  You’ll need to switch to Arcadia’s dashboard to pay, but it will take care of your bill once you sign up for it.  So it’s a win-win:  Free Wind Energy (50% of your bill) and it’s also a beautiful interface and user-friendly!

Philo – Free Streaming TV

The rise of online streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, and Sling TV has brought fierce competition to the cable cutting concept.  Skip paying for cable tv and pay premium subscriptions or shows that you actually watch.  Philo is a newer app that will only require a telephone number (cell) to try out and offers a nice array of channels like HGTV, Cooking, ESPN, and a few others.  Try it risk free for 7 days!

S’more App – $3/Month

Perhaps the easiest option on here, and the concept is straightforward.  Replace your current lock screen application with this Android Only lock-screen app, and you’ll earn a set of points.

Over time you can redeem these points for gift cards, which can convert into cash.  Time to try the S’mock App Hack!

Search S’more on Google Play

      Indeed! Swagbucks is great, but if you are looking for an alternative to Swagbucks, MyPoints also serves the same purpose (it’s operated by the same company)

    I tried signing up for Acorns but it seems like it’s only available for users in the US and Australia. Too bad, I was really interested in trying it out. Are the others available internationally or is it restricted like Acorns? I hope more apps are developed for a global audience soon.

      eToro is a unique alternative that I believe works with Europe, although not the same concept as Acorns it’s still a reputable way to get into investing!

    I believe these apps are just for people who are in U.S territory correct? Because I know swagbucks are for U.S citizens only.

      As long as the site is working with your current browsing it should be ok for now!
