Your smartphone extracts plenty of money from you to pay for basic service as well as apps, tunes, and other accessories. Why not let your phone send some money back to you for a change? An increasing number of apps exist that will pay you for performing various tasks.
Your phone will not be spitting out dollar bills at you like an ATM (wouldn't that be nice?), but you will be paid upon completion of tasks through gift cards, discounts on goods or services, or directly through PayPal or similar money transfer options.
These apps tend to fall into a few distinct categories, as outlined below.
These are just a few of the options available to you. An hour or two spent on Internet searching will yield many interesting possibilities for you to consider.
Once you have chosen an app or two to use, do some background research on the company involved. The more reputable and established ones will have available reviews that you can use to check out the details of the tasks, terms and conditions, history of payment, and any complaints.
Be sure to check the system requirements of the app. Some apps are available only on iPhone or Android-based systems, and you may require a more up-to-date operating system than what you currently have.
If you have the time, see if any of these moneymaking apps can work for you. You are unlikely to make enough money to pay your entire phone bill – but perhaps you can put a dent in it, and every little bit helps.
