How To Legitimately Earn Money, Rewards or Gift Cards Online With Apps

Earn Money, Rewards or Gift Cards Online With Apps

Recently, I launched into a new endeavor; earning cash back online, doing activities that I would generally do on a daily basis. This includes shopping, going out, completing surveys, playing games and many other tasks.

My favorite task so far is scanning grocery receipts, with scanning apps. It is great, because before you throw those papers into the trash, you can earn anywhere upwards of US$0.25 per qualifying item. You can earn cash back on purchases that you make at the grocery store, convenience store, restaurant, fast food joint, gas station and many other locations. This  usually takes under a minute, and you’re earning free money just for taking a picture of your receipts.

Today, I would like to share with you a few of the apps that have allowed me to earn money, rewards or gift cards online.

Here are my top choices, at a glance:

  1. Ebates
  2. Ibotta (refferal code: lcdqfoi )
  3. SwagBucks
  4. Fetch Rewards (referal code: DC9RY)
  5. Panel App


The first program that I received rewards from, was Ebates.  They will send your rewards upon verification of purchase. If you do most of your shopping online, then get prepared to see those cash back earnings hit up your PayPal account, when you least expect it.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

To do: Make sure to download the Ebates button.

The Ebates Cash Back Button is the helper you need to find Cash Back while you shop! It even applies coupons automatically at checkout so you’ll always get the best deals.

So, Shop and save online with automatically applied coupons and promo codes at over 2,000 stores – all while earning Cash Back!

My second favorite so far is the Ibotta app.  You get real cash. Not points or credits. Get real cash via PayPal or Venmo, or buy a gift card with your earnings.

It works almost everywhere. Get cash back everywhere you shop with offers at hundreds of stores. Visit their website for more information.


Swagbucks is the gift that keeps on giving. It is legitimate, stands the test of time and does not lessen the value or number of offers to help you earn cash back, unlike Ibotta which trickles down your rewards after a short while.

It’s been several years and Swagbucks is my number one choice by far. So many ways to earn: is the web’s most popular rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online.

Earn points when you:

  1. shop at your favorite retailers,
  2. watch entertaining videos,
  3. search the web,
  4. answer surveys and
  5. find great deals.

To do: Remember to install the app and download the Swag Button into your browser for maximum reward opportunities.

Fetch Rewards

What I appreciate about Fetch Rewards, is that you wont have to take a super long time before you can qualify for great rewards. They have even increased the amount and types of receipts that you can upload.

  3. Get Rewards:; Redeem your points on dozens of great rewards

Panel App 

This is another rewards program that requires the minimal effort. Great prizes, rewards and sweepstakes are just a few taps away! Panel app rewards users for simply going about their day.

★ VISA and Mastercard Cash Cards
★ Google Play Gift Cards


After three years, I can say my number one choice is definitely Swagbucks. Then Fetch to upload receipts. They do not delay and with Swagbucks, as you make 100 or 300 SB, you can get your reward. Getting points is not difficult and you can get rewards monthly or weekly, depending on your input.

I have made a lot of money just using these apps a few minutes a day in my spare time. I too was concerned about legitimacy, but  or scams; but they have stood up to the test.

Enjoy your rewards.

This book examines the processes and infrastructure in place for employee training and whether positive organizational change is the result. In an economy that has seen more businesses failing in the last several decades than the previous 100 years, it is always a good investment to implement initiatives like on-the-job training. This is an important aspect of fostering positive organizational change. It is also one of the more direct and efficient means of employee empowerment.
