S'more - Android Only
I love the S'more App for Android phones: they put ads on my cell phone's lock screen in exchange for 10 cents a day--that is, 10 points. A thousand points can be exchanged for a $10 gift card (I choose Amazon, where I'd be spending money anyways), so you earn $10 about every 3 months. Watch two videos for a bonus point, as available, to speed up the frequency of rewards. Use my code for 25 free bonus points: NBMB3B
InboxDollars - Website that Pays!
Another slow trickle of free money comes from Inbox Dollars--use that link for an extra bonus when you sign up. You can earn cash for completing surveys, but I generally don't think the payout is worth the time, but I do appreciate earning a nickel here and there for playing mindless games, using their search function, or whatever. I think of it as finding a bit of change on the street, but most every day.
Sweatcoin - Make Walking Pay
My current favorite free money app is Sweatcoin--again, use that link for 5 free Sweatcoin. S'more and InboxDollars are old friends--I've gotten cold, hard cash from both--but I've only used sweatcoin for a few months now (July 2020). You earn sweatcoin for steps taken with your phone on your person--you can think of sweatcoin as a cryptocurrency tied to health. (Technically, something something blockchain, they aren't a true cryptocurrency, but the company aspires to be one someday.) According to my research, they occasionally offer a "marathon" prize of $1K for 20K sweatcoin, so they are generally thought of as approximately $0.05 per sweatcoin. By that estimate, 20 sweatcoin equals $1, which can be earned in a single day with some effort (about 10K steps, with their Trouble Maker premium membership). Several levels of membership can be paid for with sweatcoin, and the prizes one can exchange various amounts of coin for change regularly.
The way I see it, even if I never get anything in exchange for sweatcoin, it still incentivizes getting more steps. In fact, research suggests the average user increases their step count 20% most days, after starting to use Sweatcoin.
Finally, they pay for successful invites (cash! not sweatcoin!) so I'd sure appreciate you using my link.
