Earn Money for Staying Active with Achievement!

b0e5d5e05457e2c8a12dc87c9b6eafc7 (1)If you are like me, you are looking for a way to stay physically active while gyms and fitness outlets are closed. The kids and I have taken up Pokemon Go- It’s a great way for us to get out and remain active while having something that keeps the kiddos engaged.

I’ve worn a fitness tracker (I have a Fitbit right now) for almost 10 years. I’ve been using Achievement to earn extra cash for tracking my steps and exercise for about 3 years now.

It’s super easy to use: Connect your fitness tracker (see the list below) to Achievement and be rewarded when you exercise, sleep, and log calorie or water intake.

It is non-intrusive, and you’ll earn points that can be redeemed for cash via PayPal, gift cards, or you can donate your earnings to various charities.

I earn $10 in PayPal cash about 4-5 times a year. I usually use it to reload my Starbucks Card.  It’s a nice little perk for being active.

It’s super easy to get started. Click here to sign up! This is my referral link- If you sign up using my link, I earn an extra points.

Achievement is compatible with over 20+ Android and iOS apps (and counting!).

Earn Money Doing Surveys Online

I’ve written about doing surveys online before, and it’s definitely one of the ways that I make money. For my full list of side hustles, check out this post.

Here are a couple survey companies that are looking for new members!

Create a profile and take surveys to earn cash or gift card rewards with Branded Surveys. They pay you with cash or gift card rewards to complete market research studies. Refer your friends to maximize your rewards (woo hoo).

Pro Tip: Cashouts are possible upon receiving 1,000 points ($10). You’ll also receive these notifications after each survey you take along with helpful tips and hints to improve performance.

  My absolute favorite survey company! Pinecone Research pays $3 per survey. Redeem via paypal or save your points to cash out for other gift cards or shop their catalog.

They send you an email notification when you have a survey available. Complete the survey and earn points to be redeemed for either cash or prizes. Occasionally, they will send you a product to test, too.

Oh, and Vindale Research is a fun one too! Get paid to review products with Vindale Research in addition to surveys!

When you sign up to do surveys online, I recommend that you do the following:

  1. Have an email address solely for doing surveys. Check it a few times a week to make sure that you aren’t missing any opportunities.
  2. If you don’t have a Paypal Account, sign up for one. They are free and most companies that pay “cash” use Paypal.
  3. Keep track of your earnings- I have a Google Sheet that I update any time I receive a pay out.
  4. Have Fun!

I wrote about Q-insights a few weeks ago. They contacted me the other day and they are looking for new respondents to join their database to share their opinion for paid market research studies!

Q-Insights recruits for nationwide studies taking place in person, online or over the phone so there are many opportunities to earn extra cash. To sign up for the Q-insights Database, click HERE. 

Market Research Studies are a great way to make extra money.  Here is more information about some other local (San Diego, CA) Market Research firms that I have worked with in the past.

Earn Cash back with Dosh!

Screen Shot 2018-01-17 at 1.42.28 PM.pngI love a good cash back app.  Dosh is the latest, and it’s a little different than the others out there right now. Dosh is primarily for restaurants (including Denny’s, which is the kid’s favorite), but there are retailers like Hallmark, Forever 21, Cost Plus World Market, and Sam’s Club.

Signing up is easy, and there are no receipts to scan, or photos to take.  Sign up here, then link your credit and debit cards.  Once you use one of the cards at a participating retailer, you’ll get a push notification from Dosh, and in just a few days, you’ll have cash back!  The Cash Out threshold is $15.00 which is pretty easy to get.

Right now when you sign up and link at least two cards, you’ll get a $10 bonus!  Refer friends and receive $5 per referral that signs up and receives their first cash back!

Thanks to my kids and their love of Denny’s, plus all of the other great extra ways to earn money with the app, I’ve already cashed out $20!

Here is my pro-saving tip for the day: Double or triple dip on this by using coupons (There were Denny’s coupons in the mail recently, and many of the retailers that participate also have coupons out there) to lower your Out of Pocket (OOP), and then scan your receipt into Receipt Hog, and check apps like Cash Dash to see if there are any cash back opportunities. And if you shop at Sam’s Club, check out Ibotta, Fetch Rewards, and Checkout51 for more rebate/cash back opportunities! You’ll be earning in NO TIME!!

(The Dosh Link is my personal link, if you sign up and complete an offer, I may earn $5. This money helps me run the site and offer contests and giveaways. You can see my Disclosure  info here.)

Score a FREE ecobee4 Wifi Thermostat!

So, ya’ll know my love of Ohm Connect! It’s an awesome way for Southern CA residents to earn money while conserving power! I wrote about it here, with all the deets.

Right now through Labor Day, when you refer 4 friends that reach silver status (it’s super easy) you will receive a free ecobee4 wifi thermostat! The ecobee4 is the new hottest thermostat on the market (no pun intended). With built-in Amazon Alexa Voice Service and a remote sensor to manage hot and cold spots, CNET is calling ecobee4 the new smart thermostat to beat!

If you haven’t signed up for Ohm Connect yet, you can do so here.  We’ve been members since 2005, and we’ve earned over $300 cash back via paypal, plus, we’ve saved a bunch of money on our utility bill!  The Ohm Connect alerts (via text) about when to conserve power are a big help!

Ohm Connect is available to those with an electric utility account with Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison or San Diego Gas & Electric.
