How to make money with your mobile
It can cost a lot to maintain a mobile contract – especially when we are online shopping on the go – but there are also ways you can use your phone to make your money back. Here are our five top suggestions.
It’s now easier than ever to sell your belongings online, so If you’ve got some clothes that are gathering dust, simply take a quick picture with your mobile and upload it instantly. No need to stand in the cold at a car boot sale; it’s all at your fingertips. Popular apps include eBay, where you can sell all manner of new and used items ranging from a pair of straighteners you tried once to the old couch that’s been taking up room in the loft. While you’re there, you can also pick up some great deals on designer brands that might save you money in the long run.
It’s always tempting, when a company asks you for feedback, to click “no”. It’s almost an involuntary response. But it might be time to recondition yourself and reconsider whether it could be worth your time because on some sites, you can actually be paid to answer a simple survey. Brands are always looking to improve their service, and your opinions are valuable. Ten minutes could translate into a redeemable voucher worth ten quid. iPay and Google Opinions Rewards are just a couple of the apps worth trying out.
Of course, it’s not necessary to go to Vegas to make money; you can find the best online casino at the touch of a button. Roulette and bingo are popular options if you’re feeling lucky, and you don’t have to be a gamer or have a world-class poker face to sign up or win big.
If you’ve got a bit of free time on your hands, another option is to simply enter as many online competitions as you can. There are people out there who claim to enter 100 a day, but even by just aiming for a third of this you’d be in with a good chance of translating your time into tangible results. Most competitions simply ask a single multiple choice question, and as well as cash prizes there are all kinds of goods on offer, from a car to a holiday to an unlimited supply of chicken nuggets. This is a great option for freebie-loving students, however, beware of spam competitions – you don’t want to be wasting time or risking your online security on sites that aren’t even legitimate or which will send you endless junk e-mails.
Get paid to watch videos
Believe it or not, there are some apps that actually reward you for doing things you’d normally do to unwind or procrastinate, like surfing the web and scrolling through videos. You could earn gift cards and PayPal cash on Swagbucks by shopping, and CashPirate, too, offer points for watching and interacting with ads. Fronto even give points for viewing new product deals, news and articles, or simply downloading free apps.
