Make easy money.... by shopping!

I often use my phone to earn money, I wanted to share a few of the best apps that I have found, with you, aren't you lucky!

-Quidco: Quidco is a great little cashback site, its mostly for online shops, but has a few offline deals that you can activate by registering your card. To earn money from this, you need to sign up to the site, and then just browse, or search for retailers that you want to buy from, it will tell you how much you will get back in cashback, sometimes amount and sometimes in percentage. click the "go to the site" button, it will take you to the retailers page and you just shop like normal. After a day, maybe less, cashback shows up on your Quidco account for the purchase, it can take a while for the retailer to approve it, but if you dont mind waiting a few months for some free money, then this site is great.

Topcashback: This site is exactly like Quidco, Cashback rates can be higher on this site, but I also find it a little less user friendly than Quidco, but its up to you of course!

-Clicksnap: this is a Quidco app, so anything you earn from this, will be added to your Quidco balance, its significantly quicker on getting your money back though. - download the app and register (if you have a Quidco account you wont need to re-register, just use the same one) It will give you a list of products, some say FREE some will just have an amount next to them, the idea is that you go to a shop (it tells you which shops to get it from too, you have to be careful with this, as if it only says TESCO and you buy it in ASDA it won't count) and buy the EXACT product it lists, then you take a photo of your receipt and tell it which items you've purchased that you want to claim for and hey presto! free money. It usually takes 24 hours (working days) to validate.

Checkoutsmart: This app is almost exactly like Clicksnap, and they are affiliated, meaning you can't use one receipt and redeem the same offers on both of the apps, they will know. BUT sometimes they do have different offers, and if you wanted to buy the same products at a different time, you could redeem them from the other app. The only downside really to this is that if you want to withdraw under £19.99 it takes 5% for fees, still not bad, but I prefer to use Clicksnap when I can.

Receipt Hog: Referal code rer35531 - This one you just get rewarded for shopping, at most shops, just upload a photo of your receipt and you either get points, On average you get 5-10 points per receipt, but only 2 from the same shop in one day, you get more when you "level up" and with each receipt you're automatically entered into the monthly sweepstake competition, but this remains to be seen! This app takes quite a while as you can imagine as you need 1500 points to = a £5 paypal reward, 3 months in and I've managed that once!

Shopprize UK: Referal code q6vze-  It's got to be said, one of my new favourite apps! Again it's just photographs of receipts that they want, up to a max of 10 per day this time, you get 100 points per receipt and then a bonus amount every day just for opening the app, you also get more each time you "level up" you can enter the sweepstakes to win featured items, with the points that you accumulate, or you can save them up (always my option) and when you get to 7500 (it sounds a lot, but if its 10x 100 a day + bonus points it doesnt take that long!) you can redeem them for a £5 amazon voucher, so far I've managed to get 2 every month!! well worth it if you ask me!

I hope this helps a few people earn some more pennies! I can't take any responsibility for the safety/operation of these apps, all I can say is that they work well for me, and I've had payouts from them too. Good luck giffgaffers x
