With the ringing in of a New Year, people are setting their resolutions for 2017 with many focusing their efforts on improving upon their financial outlook. One way in which they can increase their income is to use their mobile phones.
This app pays you for using your phone’s home screen as an advertising space. Anytime you unlock your phone, an ad will appear. You can opt to interact with the ad or simply continue on to your phone. In both situations you still get paid from Locket depending upon how many times you unlock your phone over the course of a day. Currently only available for use on Android phones, Locket pays out via PayPal.
Everyone shops so this particular app can pay your back for doing so. Also, users may be paid to take surveys. Simply download the app and scan in your receipts. The app will provide you with virtual coins that can be converted into cash. Receipt Hog uses this information in its market research. Users can submit as many as 20 receipts each week.
Mobile and Online Casino Sites
Online gaming has long been a fun way to earn some extra cash. Many casinos also have developed mobile versions of their sites to make it easier to play on the go. If you commute to work this can be a great time to earn some money from playing your favorite casino game or trying your hand at poker to pass the time. Take advantage of promotions and bonuses to further stretch your playing dollar.
Be an Uber Driver
Uber is becoming a popular transportation method in need of drivers. After signing up with Uber, you would consent to a background check. Once approved, you can begin receiving ride requests through the Uber app. The best thing about this is you can do it when it fits your schedule. Turn the app on when you’re willing to accept ride requests and turn it off when you aren’t.
Consider one of these options for improving upon your personal financial situation in 2017.
