InstaGC is a great Swagbucks alternative that has a great community and a nice selection of offer walls and surveys and more. You can also earn points with cashback from purchases you make, searching online, partipating in sweepstakes and even competing against other users. You can cash out for PayPal, bank deposit, or one of thousands of giftcards that are available. Minimum cashout is $1.00 USD as an Amazon.com giftcard.
With all the bitcoin earning apps and programs, you need a place to put it. I use CoinBase. It is free, and when you buy $100 or more worth of bitcoin using the app, using my referral code, you get $10 worth of bitcoin on top of that.
I like using the app because it is simple, keeps my bitcoin secure, and it is highly rated. I also do automatic purchasing each week of small amounts of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether coin (ETH), and over the long run, they have grown in value significantly, even with the dips and drops occasionally.
Contact me for the invite as it is a one-time use code rather than a link anyone can use.
PostLoop pays for posting, commenting, and allover being a part of multiple forums and communities within it. You sign up, subscribe to the PostLoop Portal forum (this is really key), make 10 quality posts/contributions within it, they then approve you and you start making money from posting. I can get a few bucks per day from posting on a regular basis!
FushionCash can get you money really fast. You can basically get $0.50 per app download, no limits to how many you download and open per day. You can easily make $20/day if they offer enough apps. There are other activities, surveys, videos, etc, to add to the revenue. They offer a $5 signup bonus and a $0.50 text verification bonus, when using my referral link.
Vidfall is a great place to grab deals on gift cards like Amazon and Best Buy and even some tech items like an iPad Air. I know you like a great deal as much as I do, so you can check VidFall out by clicking my referral link below. Even better, if you decide to grab an item, we’ll each get 50,000 rewards points! Those points are good for $5 off your next purchase!
FunBills is a way to track bills, pay them, and do other things (surveys, competitions, etc.) to earn points called FunBux. These fun bucks can be cashed out or used towards paying bills. If you use them towards paying bills, they are worth more than the amount you would get just cashing them out.
Freebitcoin is an hourly bitcoin lottery. I have made anywhere from $0.25 to $5.00 worth of bitcoin per week. One time I made a few hundred worth of bitcoin because of getting a few high lottery payouts! When you do the lottery, they have a lot of ways to try it. I usually stick to the hourly check in bonus, which can range from a few bits to an entire Bitcoin!
WayUp is great for students who want to make some easy extra money doing different projects at their schools, like posting flyers, organizing events and groups, etc. They email out job postings, projects, and other opportunities as soon as they post on their website. The work you find can help with having an income while in school or to build up your resume doing projects and work associated with your career path.
Many of the Ambassador programs also offer perks on top of the pay and making your resume look more attractive. Eventually as you improve upon your resume on the site, and your work history, you will start receiving job offers and opportunities specifically for you, and not what is in the general job postings on the site. It will help get your name out there to owners of these companies or executive members, and people with influence that will get you a good spot in their company because of what you show them through your work.
SmartPhoneMate runs in the background of your phone and pays $3-5 in Amazon gift cards per month. They “require” that you check in with it twice a day. I try to check in twice a day, but many times I forget, but haven’t had any problems so far in getting the gift cards each month. Their customer service/support are helpful if you have any dispute about not getting your gift cards each month.
ControlMySMS sends random texts periodically and pays you for each text it sends. It can pay up to $12/month by letting it do its thing. I don’t have to do anything at all once it is installed and set up. It may require a data/texting plan on your phone (SMSogram is a good way to circumvent that if you don’t want to use your own phone plan) in order to receive the texts from them to earn money per text.
This is available worldwide!
ChargerPay runs when you are charging your phone/tablet and not using it. It plays ads during that time and starts accruing points. Every 100,000 points pays $5 in gift cards (I always prefer Amazon gift cards).
I have reached 10,000 points/day usually (running it on two phones and a tablet). I have gotten paid over $15/month since using it. I use an app with it to keep the screen on all the time as well as diminish the screen brightness to use less power, called Screen On. Without it, usually the screen will time out after 30 minutes and the points stop accruing until I turn the screen back on.
GomezPeer runs on your computer in the background. Your account will show as pending until you have earned their minimum payout amount (I think it’s $5?) within a month. After that, they pay out whatever amount you have earned for the month. I am making about $0.20 per day by doing nothing except letting it run.
- Referrals are now paid 1000 points to join using the link below! (That’s $1.00)
- New Chrome Extension available to earn points on other sites besides nadamobile.com:
- NadaMovieTrailers shows you some really interesting trailers. It is my favorite, even though it sometimes pays inconsistent points.
- Fameapp.io is a secretly Nada owned news site with some cool material. Watch the videos for some extra Nada points!
Nada Mobile is great, because it pays higher than some other sites for watching videos and ads. If you watch one video, you get 4 points, and 1000 points equal $1.00. Just leave the tab open in your browser as it looks for an ad and check it occasionally if it has a new one available. It is very easy to earn cash on NADA mobile.
eBesucher sends emails or other minimal effort things to do and pays you for it. I have made a few bucks each month from just receiving and reading the emails they send. Hardly takes more than 30 seconds per email. They have a few other services to create a revenue, too. If you use Firefox Browser, you can get their program which does autosurfing websites and awards points for it. I let that run throughout the day.
It is available worldwide. Minimum cash out is $2 USD.
UPDATE: Grabpoints is running giveaways. Currently for Amazon giftcards as well as Xbox Live passes. To participate, sign up using the code below, find your invite code here and comment on the giveaway videos on the GrabPoints YouTube Channel.
GrabPoints is great app and platform for earning cash, however there is one that makes it worth it. If you have the app installed, it will give you notifications for free point booster codes. Either you will receive 7 points completely free, or 15 points for answering three trivia questions correctly. 1000 points = 1 dollar but they really add up. You can also answer surveys, install apps, and watch videos to rack up the points.
Join here and enter invite code OGBRUL for 500 points!
Using Datacoup, you link your social media accounts, debit and credit card accounts, and other accounts, to basically sell your data to potential advertising companies and marketing companies. I get $1.50/week with them by linking as many accounts to it as possible.
FreeEats is so easy to make a little extra money from. Basically you sign up, register your phone number to receive periodic texts from them. Each text you receive is worth at least $0.25!!! And they pay even more when you complete tasks like downloading an app or checking out a website. But if you don’t want to do any of that, you still get paid for the text you received. They give an extra $1 for signing up. All payments are made immediately to your PayPal account, so if you don’t have one, get one!
Using an innovative AI programming to help manage my savings and investments. I put in my extra money and let it work on making it grow more valuable. It uses formats like Facebook Messenger, where you can ask questions like balances, goals, status of subscriptions (Netflix, Spotify, etc.), and even make changes according to your savings and investment plans.
It will also be updating to communicate via text, Kik, Hangouts, and other chat methods. You will be able to set up alerts, reminders, status updates, scheduling different things like transfers, paying bills, etc.
Signing up enters you for a chance to win an iWatch and a year of free investing services from WealRo!
Purse is a way to exchange Bitcoin and Amazon gift cards. You can buy or sell what you want, similar to eBay. You can use your Amazon gift cards to purchase something for another user, and they pay you back in Bitcoin (usually a much higher value of Bitcoin than the going market, which is good). You can also have someone buy something for you and use their Amazon gift cards and you pay them in Bitcoin for an agreed upon value of the exchange.
You get $10 for signing up using your .edu email address if you are a current student. Anyone who signs up gets 0.01 BTC (as of this post it’s worth around $5 USD).
You can save on average 18% on Amazon purchases. The website has more detailed instructions on how to get the best discounts depending on the urgency of your purchase and who picks up your request, etc.
What Countries are Supported?
Shopping with Bitcoins
Name Your Discount supports most Amazon sites. Residents of other countries might be able to ship from the closest Amazon site.
- United States
- United Kingdom
Buy Now is only available to US shipping addresses.
Almost anyone in the world can sell Amazon gift cards or purchase bitcoin on Purse. Just use any major credit card or payment method Amazon accepts.
BrowserU is a program that helps pay off student loans through different tasks and then contributions made from advertisers for browsing on the website. So far I am getting $1,500 paid off of my student loans from this site and could potentially get $2,000 from doing this. Like a scholarship that will go directly to your student loans once your spot comes up.
I was at spot #641 when I started and now I am in spot #614. The more people sign up and use it, as well as their browsing site (it would replace Google search on Chrome), the sooner you get paid out. Those in line get paid out from the use of searches and other tools from the site.
Hi Lazy Money Guy!
MindSumo is switching its rewards system from money to points as of July 1, 2016. This change should increase the prize pool for each challenge, allowing us to reward the top 50% of solvers, as opposed to 10% or less in the current structure.
Here is some more info about the upcoming changes:
- We’re increasing prize pool per challenge by 60%
- Points can be converted to money and cashed out at any time, with no threshold
- Half of the submitters to each challenge will win some reward
- Points will be the only reward mechanism on MindSumo and will be given proportionally based on the quality of ideas you submit to challenges.
These changes will affect your current reward balance. Here’s how:
- Bonus rewards (like the signup or first solution bonuses) will be removed entirely on July 1. We are moving the funds from these bonuses to challenges, so the prize pools can increase.
- If you’ve made referrals and have at least $5 in the referral rewards category, you can cash out now through June 30, 2016.
- If you were chosen as a winner or honorable mention on a challenge, your rewards (minus bonuses) will be converted to points if you don’t manually cash out before July 1, 2016.
For challenges already launched, the reward amounts will stay the same. For example, if the challenge lists 5 x $150 winners and 5 x $50 honorable mentions, the points awarded will match those values.
We’re excited about this change and very confident it’ll will result in a better experience for our student users. Feel free to reach out with any questions or feedback.
Per the email sent out from Google:
Hello Lazy Money Guy,
This is to inform you about the upcoming transition from Screenwise Trends Panel to the new Cross Media Panel. This transition should be seamless and any accrued rewards balance will be carried forward automatically. We hope to provide you with a simpler and richer overall experience within Cross Media Panel that ensures your continued satisfaction for participating in this online panel.
You do not have to take any steps in order to support this transition. You will be notified by email within the next few weeks once the transition has taken place, along with additional details on how to access your account on the new panel website. Once you have received the transition email, you will be able to sign-in with your existing Screenwise Trends Panel account credentials to access your information, including your rewards balance. Shortly after the transition, the old Screenwise Trends Panel site will be shut down.
Intuitive Membership Portal
The new Cross Media Panel panelist portal will allow you to quickly access all relevant information such as membership status and rewards balance from a single screen. The panelist portal will also be optimized to be viewable through your mobile device!
More Redemption Options and Less Waiting
We will also offer an expanded set of merchants from which you can choose to redeem your rewards. The simple to use redemption interface (shown below) will enable ordering of e-Gift cards within hours rather than weeks.
Over the next few weeks, expect to hear more from us as we complete the transition from Screenwise Trends Panel to Cross Media Panel. Thank you for helping improve the products we build by participating in this program.
– Cross Media Panel Team
I will post updates as they come about this transition and what it means.
A platform that connects people who can provide a service of any kind and people who are looking to hire service providers locally. It is an easier way to find help or to make money offering help locally. It will be released in the next few months.

WiFi Metropolis is rebuilding their program and should be rolling out a fully operational app to tag wifi hotspots, private networks, etc. to earn points towards bitcoin cashouts. During their first phase a year ago, I had made about $20 worth of bitcoin. They stopped the app and cashing out anymore, but had kept making updates and communication with users open. So I wait and will see.
Unoceros was awesome when it first came out. It paid for using phone resources for different needs of their clients. But an exploit was found, the program shut down, and they hid in the shadows, rebuilding, restructuring, and preparing to come out into the light for a more powerful program. I spoke with the creator of it who said they are focusing on a few things prior to the official release of their upgraded app, and are looking at new formats of incentives for lending phone resources through it to their clients. Something is in the works, and I am excited.
