bevRAGE: The Alcohol App That Pays You Back!




please use my referral code: KSQXPFYU


hello bevRAGE! it's about time someone made a cash back shopping app completely dedicated to drinking! this is the drinking gal's ibotta. best yet, you can earn for both grocery and bar/restaurant purchases. the bad news is they are just rolling out and not in all areas yet---including mine :(. hopefully they will expand soon and we can all take advantage. obviously, you need to be at least 21 or over to redeem any offers.





when you hit $20 you can request a check or have a paypal deposit. i have zero offers in my particular zip code so i can't really say what kind of drinks are eligible in bars and restaurants but here is a snapshot of some of the in-store items eligible:

Radial Insight: Your New Favorite Survey Site!

*ATTENTION! PEOPLE HAVE BEEN REPORTING VARIOUS ERROR MESSAGES WHEN TRYING TO REGISTER. I HAVE EMAILED RADIAL INSIGHT TO SEE WHAT THE ISSUE IS AND IF THEY ARE STILL ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS. STAY TUNED!*


i have stumbled across a new survey site and trust me this one is a major keeper! take a minute right now and sign up for Radial Insight. this new survey site is continuing the trend of not having a 'portal site' but rather just using emails to communicate surveys and rewards, similar to innopoll and livewire.



payment is almost instantaneous and comes in the form of Tango credit. no paypal option but lots of gift cards to choose from, including amazon, iTunes and target.
right now there is no referral program and they probably won't institute one, also similar to innopoll and livewire. so far i have received 5 surveys and all have paid either $3 or $5---and all have taken under 10 minutes! seriously they are paying some of the best survey wages out there and i hope it stays that way for awhile!




one word of warning! the sign up process is super short and almost seems too abrupt--it truly is only like 3 questions and then it ends. don't panic! you will hear back from them in a few days--i think it was almost 4-5 days before i heard back and i was convinced my application didn't go through.
you will get a follow up email from emma to complete your registration that looks like this:

The 9 Shopping Apps That Have Paid Me Over $300.



did these little money makers even exist 5 yrs ago? it amazes me how many apps there even are now. i have gotten myself into a nice routine where i automatically scan all my receipts after putting the groceries away. it does take a few minutes but those few minutes each shopping trip add up nicely. here are my top earners!


ibotta: use my code EZL4Q and earn a bonus!
pros: probably the most offers available and one of the easiest to upload receipts

cons: only select stores are eligible

earnings so far:  $50.35 paypal


checkout51
pros: any store allowed and a weekly $500 sweeps

cons: limited eligible products

earnings so far: $37.75 check

receiptpal
pros: nearly all receipts accepted, even online ones

cons: no ability to take multiple pics of a receipt--long ones may be rejected

earnings so far: $55 amazon


receipt hoguse my code TROST892 and earn free spins!
pros: all grocery stores accepted

cons: seems to be one of my slowest earners

earnings so far: $30 paypal


walmart savings-catcher
pros: they auto match any competitors advertised deals on items you bought

cons: i like this one but it is hit or miss--many receipts earn me zero back

earnings so far: $63.41 store credit


find & save please enter my referral code: QRGG
pros: can be a quick money earner.

cons: offers seems to last only a couple days

earnings so far: $27.75 paypal 


yaarlo  please enter my code: BRIDGETB953
pros: any food, gas or grocery receipt accepted

cons: no ability to take multiple pics of a long receipt

earnings so far: $45.77 amazon


my last two: mobisave and savingstar i have earned very little with but only because i just started using them. i really like that mobisave auto pays into your paypal--no minimum required!

savingstar is good but only accepts certain retailers. cash out minimum is only $5.

FindParticipants Review





i have been with this panel, findparticipants, for a few months. so far i have been invited to 3 studies, one being completely voluntarily and the other 2 involving a raffle/sweeps for the incentive. so obviously not ideal but since the amount of participants for these surveys is probably low your odds are much better winning a prize here than with some of the other big name sites. that being said, i haven't won anything yet :(



that doesn't mean there aren't any paying sites here, their site says there are, i just haven't been invited to any yet. nevertheless, it is worth the signup just to see what comes your way. if anything else, i find research, more academic-based surveys are far more engaging and interesting!

Invitation to a new online community, the League


my-take has just launched a brand new online community, the league. it involves members that are active and may rely on sports medicine to help them along the way--think neck, wrist or back braces.

right now they are accepting new members. if interested leave your name and email in the comments below. i will delete your email once i forward you the screener.

no word on incentives yet. the site simply states:

Will I receive anything for my participation in this panel?
We appreciate your continued participation in the panel and your feedback is invaluable to us. Active members in the community will be incentivized for their time.
good luck!

Focus Groups Round 7

it never ends! i truly believe the number of focus groups cannot be conquered. i know it's a pain reentering your info over and over but scoring a few $100 studies makes it all worthwhile! take 30 minutes and sign up with these sites now! i also will highly suggest investing in a webcam NOW. so many studies require them now and you are excluding yourself from many high paying opportunities if you don't have one. it is $30 that will pay itself off in spades.

OpinionPLUS Survey Site.


i don't know if there is anything truly unique about opinionPLUS other than the fact that they automatically pay you via paypal when you reach $10--no requests necessary!

they also are global and open to anyone age 13+. also like many sites, you can go to their site directly and view all open studies. currently there is no referral program. while i don't do all the surveys sent my way, i will complete the short 5 and 10 minutes ones easily and it's always a nice surprise when you get an email they just deposited $10 into you paypal account!

Like Beer? Join The Tap Community!

*REGISTRATION CLOSED!*


the tap is a new online community about beer and they are currently allowing current members to invite friends and family to join the site. i just joined as well so i am still quite the newbie but what is really nice about this community is that you are guaranteed a reward each month you participate.

Will members receive anything for participating in activities?
Yes! Participating members will be awarded a $10 gift card every month.
$10 a month for being active on the site isn't too shabby plus they said there may be more opportunities for product testing and online focus groups. the site is run by my-take.
the screener survey is available by invite only so if you live in the US and are interested-- just leave your email in the comments along with your first and last name. i will delete your email once i send you the invite. don't delay! they will probably close new registrations soon once they hit their quota!
cheers!

iSecretShop: Become a Secret Shop Agent!



for those of you interested in secret shops i recommend this app to start out with. i rarely do secret shops, only picking the ones very close to me at places i am already comfortable shopping in. i have done about a dozen through this app and have found them quite easy and painless. i have never had a shop rejected from them and they have always paid, although be warned it takes 8 full weeks!

they even offer web and phone based shops so you don't even need to leave the house! pay is typical for mystery shopping, not the best, and some not paying anything extra at all but of course the free service, meal or product is part of the incentive.


the app is available for both iPhone and android. i recommend downloading the app, filling out your profile, accepting ALL the individual  MSP company agreements and seeing what's available in your area. you don't even need a smartphone--you can do shops from your laptop or tablet as well.

happy secret shopping!
