Miscellaneous, Newbies, Pay Per Task

Personal Shopper!



Wouldn’t you enjoy being paid for something you already do regularly, that doesn’t take much skill, and can put you in control of your own financial future? Grocery shopping gigs are growing in popularity. Many things we do on a regular basis are being outsourced, allowing more people to become employed.

It is interesting to find such opportunities online, but there is ample opportunity to start such a venture on your own. Whenever I think of errand jobs I think about the elderly, and those who cannot get out like you or I may be able to. All of us know how to shop for food, we just pick out what we want to eat/cook and that’s that! When we shop for others, we follow a list of the items they requested. I can’t imagine needing training to perform this type of work because we already know how.

If you just enjoy getting out and running errands this could be a good fit! I only found (1) company that actaually required background checks for delivery persons, so if the gigs are near you why not try it! Most times there is no training needed unless you are new to using smartphone apps.

I like how you listed the areas in which they can be found right of the bat. That saves a lot of time for everyone looking into them. I was wondering if you have had an opportunity to look into any of them or have some you would recommend over others?

    Great Job, best and blessed wishes

    1. Hi, Bri. I always like to recommend sites that allow users to work when they want to. Many micro-jobs and freelance job sites are usually where I send newbies to working online, because you can complete small tasks. I have tried Checkout 51 and Shopkick, both popular apps that regularly pay users. The other sites are fairly new to me except Savingstar which has been around for quite some time. Savingstar is a good bet also…has a good reputation online. Thanks so much for stopping by. Come back soon! 🙂

  2. Superb! I really enjoyed this article very much. I hope it will help a lot of people. Thank you so much for this amazing post, and please keep up the good work……like this excellent article.
