If you ask any member of theminsitrymom.com gang what their favorite time of year is, they will tell you hands down–Christmas!! We love this special time of year when we can get together as a family and thank God for sending His only begotten Son as a man to live a sinless life so that He might pay the price for our sin. We take this time to exchange gifts with each member of our family…which as of late has grown very large! How can we afford to do this on ministry budgets? In this post, we will share apps and websites that will reward you for doing what you normally do and buying what you normally buy with cash! If you save up these rewards all year long, you will have extra funds on hand when it comes to gift-buying time!

{Disclosure} While we are not necessarily affiliates with any of these apps or websites, we may be rewarded if you sign up using our links. This does not sway our opinion, however. We would use these apps if you were able to utilize them or not.

 

ibotta

ibotta

While there are many apps like ibotta that I use (Checkout 51, SavingStar, Mobisave, etc.), this one seems to be the easiest one to use. You can download this app to your smartphone for FREE! This app rewards you for products that you already buy. The products change every week, but I have gotten cash back for milk, bread, fruits and veggies, shredded cheese, and sour cream. (Any brand!) Once you have built up $20.00 in cash, they will send the money to your PayPal account OR you can select a gift card to 8 common shopping venues. In less than two months, I earned $35.00!

Shopkick--Rewards---Deals

Shopkick

This FREE app will reward you just for walking in the store! The points change each week. Open the app when you walk into a store and if it is one of the Shopkick stores, they will give you points. It is that easy. You can also get points by scanning the barcodes of certain products. This makes grocery shopping like going on a scavenger hunt! Once you have at least 500 points (I got this my first month using Shopkick!), you can redeem them on 40 different rewards including gift cards, electronics, or fashion accessories!

Receipt Hog

Receipt Hog

With this FREE and fun app, you simply take pictures of your shopping receipts and get rewarded! Once you have earned enough “coins” you can redeem them through PayPal or Amazon gift cards.

I do not have a referral link for this app, but it’s a lot of fun and very easy to use.

 

Swagbucks logo

Swagbucks

This is a search engine you join for FREE. You get rewarded for searching the web, making online purchases, watching videos and taking surveys. You can then redeem your points with giftcards or PayPal cash. It’s that easy.

So far, using these resources I have earned $40 for Christmas next year. If I keep that up, I will have almost $500 in extra income by the time Christmas comes around–just by carrying out my every day life!

Do you have a method of getting paid for every day actions? We would love to hear about them in the comments!
