3 websites that pay you (for all … not just bloggers)

websites that pay you

Several days ago, I transferred $63 into my bank account from my PayPal. This money was from simply sharing things on the Internet. It was the extra little bit that I needed this month. It was awesome!

When I got to thinking about it, there are several websites and apps that I use that pay you. That’s right … they pay you actual money that you can deposit into your account. These three sites pay you to do what you already do. So since I’m a loyal user of all three, I thought I would share them with you all. Who here would love a few extra hundred bucks this month?

So without further ado, here they are. Also I want to note that you do not need to be a blogger for any of these.

3. Ibotta

Who here grocery shops? Okay that’s basically everyone. This is an app for that. Basically there are different rebates for the things you normally buy. Sometimes they’re brand specific and sometimes they’re not. So for example, several weeks ago there was a $3 rebate for Budlight. While that’s not necessarily my beer of choice, it was my best friend’s bachelorette party. So I bought it. Or there might be say a 50 cent rebate on a certain brand of cheese. Or there might be a rebate for any cereal, any apples, etc. Basically all the things you normally buy are on the app.

Before I go grocery shopping, I take a few minutes to look through the rebates and add anything that looks good. After I’m done shopping, all I have to do is take a picture of my receipt and scan the bar codes of the products I got. The rebate usually appears on the app within 24 hours. I have earned over $70 in rebates from this app alone.

In addition to groceries, you can also earn rebates from other things through Ibotta. Uber is now offer $1 per ride as long as you book the ride through the app. If you take Uber frequently, that money would surely add up. Also websites such as Amazon, Ebay, Hotels.com, Groupon and iTunes  have rebates on Ibotta.

If you join with my referral code RCDHTFA, you will get $10 when you redeem your first rebate. Click here to create your account.

2. Payperpost

This one is literally that simple. They pay you to post articles on social media. Each day in the content amp section they have a list of all kinds of articles you can share. There are all sorts of topics. You share it and then get paid per click. You can link a personal page or a fan page.

So about once a day, I log on and share whatever I find to be interesting. It literally takes maybe 3 minutes out of my daily life. Click here to create yourself a profile and start sharing.

1. Ebates

This app works similarly to Ibotta except with less of a focus on grocery shopping. Basically all that you do is use all the websites you already know and love, but you use them through the website or app. When you make a purchase, you get a rebate. As a travel blogger, I book a lot of flights, hotels and rental cars. I always use Ebates when I make these purchases. It really all adds up.

What can you find on Ebates? Hotels.com, Orbitz, Etsy, booking.com, Kohls, and so many more. In fact, it’s worth it to always just check if Ebates offers something for whatever you need to buy. They seem to have just about everything.

When you join and make a purchase of at least $25, you get an extra $10. That’s how it worked for me! I needed to book a hostel room for a friend of mine and I. I booked it and got almost half of the money back. How crazy is that? Click here to join and start earning.

Well I hope you’ve found this helpful to putting some extra cash in your pockets. Do you have any other sites you use?

  1. I have to admit I didn’t know of any of these, so I am going to have to head over and check them all out as I’m all for being able to make some extra money.

  2. My sister is big on using ebates and I keep saying I need to check it out. I’ve recently become an Ibotta fan, I love getting money back for things I have to buy anyway.

  3. I currently use Ibotta and LOVE it! I haven’t tried any of the others, but have heard a lot about Ebates. I need to download it and give it a try.

  4. Instead of Ebates, I use Swagbucks! Love it! You don’t get money back, but you get points for every dollar spent, and with the points you can get gift cards. I usually save up for $10 or $25 cards, and use those for Christmas/Birthday/whatever presents. 🙂

    1. Yes I remember you telling me about that! That is a good idea! I wonder if I could use it in Spain.

  5. I have used Ebates a few times and loved it. I will have to check out these other sites. I am always looking for ways to save.

  6. Every time I read a post like this I remember that I need to sign up for Ebates and Ibotta! I don’t know why I keep forgetting because they always get such good feedback.

  7. Ibotta is my JAM! It’s so easy to combine with other apps (like Target’s Cartwheel app, or CVS’s app) or coupons. That way you can save a ton of money on things you’re already buying AND get paid to buy them!

  8. It’s fun to get paid for items and it is an incentive to support the brand even further. I’m familiar with the 3 you mention but haven’t signed up.

  9. Am all about blogging earnings, so this post is very helpful. Bookmarking this and signing up!

    1. Yes they do! At one point I thought Ibotta worked in the UK but I’m not entirely sure. The other two work for everyone!

  10. I used to have Ibotta when I was living in the US, but since I’m traveling I don’t use it much. However, I didn’t even know about payperpost. Def going to check that out! Thanks for the heads up!

    1. Yeah I’m sad that I cannot use Ibotta when I’m outside of the US. They do have more online shopping options now, so I have saved it for that.

  11. I am signed up with ebates although I have not used it. I like the sound of pay per post I am checking that out as we speak and it is nice that you provided ways to earn extra income x

    1. Yeah pay per post is great. I just sign on each day and see if there is any content that is relevant to my blog followers. They often have stuff about marketing, which is great!

    1. Ah yeah sometimes it’s brand specific and sometimes it’s like any tomato or any milk. Also some stores give you 25 cents per receipt, which can also add up.

  12. Thanks for sharing this informative posts, good to know there are other resources for making money for blogging.

  13. I recently found out about Ibotta and it sounds like something i would benefit from since I spend a lot on groceries. Very interested in Payperpost and will need to check it out.

  14. I used to be such a huge online shopper and wish I used these methods before. I’m nomadic now so I don’t online shop, wish I saw this post few years ago haha.

  15. These are interesting websites/apps, I have never heard of this possibility of earning money. Before I read this article I thought you would suggest pages like Shutterstock or those pages that connect bloggers with brands to do a collab. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I have never heard of Shutterstock! That does sound interesting for sure! I will have to check it out.

  16. I have heard of ebates before, but never the other ones. I have never actually satg down and taken a look at site this this, maybe it’s about time I do! Thanks for the great tips and for sharing!

  17. I have used debates before and it is wonderful! I have not heard of the other two sites so I will have to check them out. Great tips girlfriend!

    1. Yeah for sure. I’ve actually made money on all three of these. I would’t recommend anything that wasn’t worth your time.

    1. I do know that Ibotta is just for Americans (and maybe the UK but I’m not 100%). Ebates is for anyone, I believe. As far as payperpost is concerned, I believe anyone can create and account and share content.

  18. Wow, I’ve never heard about these services. Sounds great.
    Payperpost seems very interesting, will definitely check it out! Thank you for the information.

    1. Awesome! It’s not like tons per post but they have new stuff every day, so it really does add up.
