After becoming a tasker and setting your rates the app will then let you know when a task is available. Depending on how much you do you can make a few dollars to a few thousand a month. The more you put into it the more money you make.
Do you own a car? Do you like to drive and meet new people? Then rideshare driving may be perfect for you. After you get approved (a process taking about 3 days) you can start using the app to get requests to pick people up. The more you drive the more money you make, if you become a “weekend warrior” you can make a few hundred dollars a weekend. Some have made this their full-time job and make thousands a week.
The same as Uber in most respects, however usually Lyft passengers will go farther, be nicer, and tip you making you even more money. On top of that driving with both apps means making more money.
Slidejoy will pay you for unlocking your phone. Sounds too good to be true because it is.
However, they are able to pay you $10 a month because they have ads on the screen.
If you’re interested in the ad you slide one way, if you simply want to unlock the phone you slide the other. The good thing is you get paid the same regardless of which way you slide.
Ever dreamed of shopping, or going to a restaurant and getting paid to tell about your experience? This top app that makes money will do just that.
If you live in a rural area where shops are few and far between then this app won’t make you much if anything. If, however, you live in a city or close to one then this app can make you some good money. Averaging about $12 an hour, but more is possible too. It’s a very good side hustle that this app provides.
Not only is Pact a top app that makes money, it can also help get you in shape. You set up a payment method as well as your workout schedule. Then every week you put whether you worked out or not per what you agreed on, and if you fail you are charged the agreed upon amount of money ($5 minimum).
However, if you stick with your workout/diet then you will get a portion of the money from those who failed.
The app owners take 40% of the proceeds and give the other 60% to those who succeed. So get in shape and make money at the same time.
This app will pay you for shopping. You simply browse the selection of deals, choose which you would like to get money back on, and then scan your receipt when you’re done.
Unlike other apps, which store you go to doesn’t matter as long as you're purchasing the right items.
It can take a while for you to get paid though. First, you have to wait until you’ve reached $20, then wait for the check to come in the mail. It can take 2 weeks or 3 months depending on how busy they are.
