There are sites out there called “GPT” sites, or “Get-Paid-To” sites, that reward you for completing various actions, watching videos, shopping at online retailers, or doing other tasks online. Some of these sites pay you directly into your PayPal account, which you can use at checkout at Pogo.com for Gems and Club Pogo subscriptions. (PayPal is safe, and free, and doesn’t require a bank account to receive money.) Here are my three favorites that you can get PayPal cash from, tips for using them, and what I like best about them:
Be sure to try the daily poll, playing games, and watching videos to earn quick SB. For playing games, check out Swagasaurus Run; it doesn’t matter what score you get so lose right away and play again until you earn the daily max for that task, 10SB. Also, Swagbucks often posts Swagcodes to their blog, Facebook, etc. You can enter these on their site for a few extra SB here and there. Swagbucks is available in US, UK, Canada, Australia, and Ireland.
If you do any online shopping, you can get up to 30% cash back when you use the links and coupons at Mr. Rebates. Look closely at the coupons on each store’s page — sometimes the Mr. Rebates coupons are better than anywhere else. When you’ve earned enough to cash out, you can get a direct deposit, PayPal cash, or a gift card. Even better, after you sign up and make your first purchase, you’ll receive a bonus of $5.00. That’s enough for 55 free Gems without even counting your cash back!
With the iBotta app, you can get cash for money you’re already spending on a regular basis. There are a few ways to earn: use your phone’s camera and their app to your receipts (from over 275 stores!) and get cash back for everyday purchases, link your loyalty card(s) and get credit automatically, or shop from within the iBotta app and get cash back that way. When you’ve reached the $20 minimum payout in your account, you can get it as a deposit straight into your PayPal account or as a gift card. To get started, create an account on the web and then download the app on your mobile device.
I always tell people that these sites are a marathon, not a sprint. A tiny bit of effort each day can really add up to big rewards!
