Yes! You can make extra money just by scanning your regular purchases. Scanning Barcodes has increased in popularity as some companies use this as a mystery shopping method. An organization can learn a lot about a product by scanning it’s barcode, like where it came from and where it should be, it’s size, cost, etc.
Now I wouldn’t start planning vacations based solely off of doing this, but I do remember reading about a lady who did all kinds of odd jobs to save for her family’s vacation, it can be done! There are always methods to earn a few bucks during your leisure time. I find that I am always installing and uninstalling new apps each day, and almost always looking down at my phone. Lol Not the best posture to imitate regularly, but money calls! The sites I’ve listed have maintained their positive reviews, though anything can happen with an app. I chose to highlight the sites that have more positive than negative reviews.
I would definitely recommend these apps to college students or young people who are venturing out alone for the first time. Not only can many apps earn us money, but there are countless money saving apps also. We know prices never go down, in reality we see prices continually rising! I can’t believe we’re paying almost $4 for a gallon of milk, crazy!! I believe it is important to earn and to save as much as you can. I won’t get political, but I am paying attention to what’s happening across the nation, and realize many more of us need these earning/saving opportunities than we thought previously. Be a good neighbor and share this information with others who may be having a harder time surviving than you, we’re not all in the same boat! If you can’t help out monetarily, it’s free to share info with one another, it takes seconds, and you will have helped someone without leaving home or changing your schedule! Much success in all you do!
