Today we're talking about 5 easy ways to get extra cash for when you shop online and locally, (plus other easy activities). I look at it as a parent "commission". Go about your everyday tasks (like buying reusable furnace filters), and get cashback for things you're already buying and for doing things like running videos on your phone when you're not otherwise using it. See the blog post here for the written version.

SWAGBUCKS - Look At This Now .com

What if in your downtime, you were able to make a little pocket money by letting your smartphone work for you? What if you could get cashback when you shop, without needing a credit card? When if your search engine paid you periodically, in exchange for your loyalty? What if you could earn cash for waiting in line,etc. by filling out surveys? Welcome to my world!

For me, part of being zero waste includes not wasting my personal time or resources. I only spend when I need to and I try not to waste money when I do shop. So, when I found Swagbucks gives free cashback for when you shop online and locally, (plus other easy activities) I was excited. I look at it as a parent "commission". As I go about my everyday tasks as a work-from-home mom (like buying reusable furnace filters), I get cashback for things I'm already buying and for doing things like running videos on my phone when I'm not otherwise using it.

Swagbucks: Shopping Portal Increase for many Stores (Best Buy, Nike, Target, Marriott & More ...

Shop online-
I don't often shop outside of going to the grocery store or the thrift store, but when I do shop, I often shop online. With a zero waste and plastic-free lifestyle, I don't often find the things I need locally. So, I choose to shop online. For example, last week I bought UG1 a vintage wooden peg doll as a "Barbie" doll upgrade on Etsy for Christmas. That's not something that would be easy to find locally, other than by chance. With Swagbucks, I get cashback/points towards Paypal cash or giftcards when I shop on Etsy or other online stores. I just use the browser extension, and Swagbucks pops up to let me know that I can receive cashback on that site.

Swagbucks Local Dining Program Review: Up to 25% Cash Back on Dining
Shop locally-
When you link up your debit card or credit card, you can shop locally and receive cashback
when you eat out or do activities outside of the home, like receive massages, etc. This is perfect for when you choose experience gifts over more physical stuff.


Watch videos-
When you install the video app on your smartphone, you can earn points by letting your phone just run videos. (You can also run videos on your computer.) You can choose movie trailers to see what's coming out soon, quick workout videos, home & garden tips, etc. You can also just turn the media sound off and let your phone use autoplay to earn cashback. (It's nice to put your phone to work for you!) I've been using this feature daily until my phone died for good last week. Since my refurbished smartphone arrived, I reinstalled Swagbucks again by signing in through my Google account.

How to earn free gift cards using Swagbucks (a beginner's guide) - Noobie

Search the web-
This is super easy! All you do is make Swagbucks your default search engine. Then, when you open a new tab, it pulls up the search box and you can earn cash randomly just by searching the web.


Answer surveys-
If you like to answer questions, or just earn cash faster, you can fill out surveys. Personally, I stopped doing this as I wanted to focus my time on my family and building up my business, but this is a great way to kill time when you don't have anything else to do, like standing in line or waiting for a meeting to start, etc.
