I have a secret to tell you! I get paid to run my weekly errands. Seriously! You can too starting TODAY! All you need is a smartphone! It's so easy and I want to tell you how I do it!
How I Get Paid to Run My Weekly Errands
I make my list of errands I need run from the grocery store to the dry cleaner, even getting gas then I head over to see where I can get paid at! Here is how I do it!
I use Apps to get paid to run my errands! Here are the ones I use!
ShopKick – You get points to check in to stores and other places, PLUS get points for finding products and scanning them into the app. Trade your points if for Gift Cards, and items. I normally grab Target and use them for groceries or for items like when the kids need new shoes and we can't find their size at the thrift store!
Receipt Pal – Upload ANY receipt. Gas, grocery, dry cleaners, lunch, pet food anything and for every 4 receipts you earn points. Trade your points in for Amazon Gift Cards.
Ride – This app works in the background of your phone and earn points for every mile you travel walking, driving, flying or really any way you travel and trade those point in for Amazon Gift Cards. This app is no longer available but I am on the hunt for a replacement!
mPlaces – This app is kind of like Foursquare. You get mPoints for checking in to your locations. mPoints are your across many apps (games like family feud, Scrabble, Bingo, apps like the Weather app on Android and more, I find new mPoints apps every day!) You trade your mPoints in from across all sites for Gift Cards.
GigWalk – This app allows you to pick up ‘gigs'. These gigs pay around $7 -$12 sometimes even more. Gigs are available everywhere but there are more around bigger cities. In most cases, gigs are product audits. You walk to into a store find a product and go what the gig asks. You will take pictures of a display or on the shelf, your location is verified via GPS, upload your pictures and you are done! Payment is via Pay Pal.
I know most give Amazon Gift Cards so I stack them then use Amazon's Prime Pantry to get free groceries! See my 10 ways to save money on Amazon Post.
I also want to point out one of my favorite ways to make money at home is via blogging! See what you need to know to get started blogging.

I can’t seem to find the ride app and the link no longer works.
A good substitute for The Ride app is EarnPike. It’s the same points company as mPlaces.
