Want to make spare change online? These are programs I can actually recommend…


While there are hundreds upon hundreds of “get paid to” sites and apps, there’s only some I would actually suggest using. I have thoroughly researched and used ALL of these platforms myself. I never recommend anything I think to be questionable or shady!

Swagbucks: This is probably one of my top recommended “get paid to” apps – you can get paid to do all sorts of things from taking surveys, searching the web, playing games and even earn reward points for shopping and eating out.

Survey Junkie: Take surveys for rewards, easy and simple. Can get PayPal cash or Amazon gift cards.

Dosh: Get cashback for shopping and eating out – allows you to link credit/debit cards so you don’t need to scan receipts. Only available with select stores and restaurants.

SliceThePie: I really like this site because it’s pretty unique – you can get paid to listen to and rate music!

Achievement: this app actually rewards you for walking! It’s nice because you can connect it to other fitness apps (like Apple Health for Fitbit) and it will automatically transfer your activity and reward you. You really don’t have to even think about it! I’ve reviewed other “get paid to walk” apps and this is the one I recommend.

This list will continue to be updated as I find more awesome programs!

Note: You aren’t going to get rich with these companies, but it can be a nice way to collect spare cash or gift cards.
