Fire signs tend to be aggressive and impulsive. If you’re comfortable with investing in the way that YOU want to, then know you don’t have to be rich to start. You can even get started with well-known brands like Google, Amazon, Tesla, and more!

That’s because Stash, an investment app, lets you start investing1 with just $1. You can choose where to put your money in and they provide guidance and tools to help you along the way. You can invest in major companies that you use or buy from regularly to make the investing process custom to you. Plus, it’s affordable.

As a bonus, Stash is giving new members $5 for any first investment so create an account to get started.*

2. Become Bingo Royalty - And Win Cash

You’ve never played bingo like this.

It’s fast, furious and it’s called Blackout Bingo, a competitive bingo game that you can play anywhere on your phone. And even against your friends virtually.

2 minutes. That’s all you need per game where you play against another person around the world. Everyone sees the same card and balls so by daubing (tapping the number) fast and correctly, you’ll get bonus boosts for more points! Tap the incorrect number and points will get docked so don’t get sloppy!

This easy-to-learn game is awesome for killing time and earning cash all at once, perfect to stave your boredom.

You can play for free on iPhone against real people for prizes or switch over to cash games to win…cash! Cash game winners can win up to $1,000 or more in mini-tournaments.

Cash tournaments not available in AZ, AR, CT, DE, LA, MT, SC, SD, and TN but you can still play for prizes!

3. Don’t Miss Out on That $202 RT Deal to Japan Again (+ Similar Trips Up to 90% Off)

Yes, the flight was that cheap. It’s over now but don’t make that same mistake again. Want to go to Iceland instead? Greece? Central America? Anywhere but here. Start planning for this year and next.

4. Scan the Stuff You Buy & Get Free Rewards

The exclusive National Consumer Panel (NCP) program is opening up again for more participants! This is your opportunity to make your consumer voice heard! (And get paid for it)

When you become a panelist, just use the app to scan the barcodes of items you purchase, provide a few additional transaction details, and you’ll earn points for:

  • Gift Cards
  • Tablets
  • Electronic Equipment
  • Flat Screen TVs
  • and much more from their gift catalog!

Plus, all panelists are automatically entered into weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual drawings to win extra points and gift cards – even a quarterly sweepstakes to win $5,000!

The more you share your shopping habits (scan barcodes), the more rewards you can get. You can also answer surveys and share information about your overall shopping trip.

“Scanning my purchases is fun! I also enjoy taking the surveys. Earning points is fast and easy and they have a great selection of rewards.” – Jennifer B.

It’s a fun way to earn more rewards on items you’ve already purchased and at no extra cost to you.

Register now to see if you’re eligible to be a National Consumer Panelist. Eligibility will be based on your location. If you don’t get accepted this time, don’t worry! They’re always expanding locations, so check back again.

5. This Side Gig, Cash Rewards & Financial Health App is Amazing

Side gigs and work-from-home opportunities are here to stay, and one of the easiest ways to find these jobs is via the free Steady app. Their community of over 2.7 million people agrees that it’s one of the best free ways to find flexible jobs to earn extra money!

Once you link your bank account, the app’s Income Tracker feature will give you personal insights into the extra income you’re making. Emergency Cash Grants up to $1,000 are also available but only after you link accounts. The process is entirely secure and uses Plaid, the same technology used by other popular applications like Venmo, PayPal, and Cash App.

And not only can you find thousands of new part-time opportunities every day, but you can also earn cash rewards through their Income Boosters perk. Basically, they pay you to try out useful brands to help manage your money even more.

“I’ve made more money from my part-time gigs through Steady last month than my actual salary and I enjoy these jobs much more than my regular work!” – one of many positive reviews.

On average, Steady Members earn over $5,500 in extra income per year. It only takes a few minutes to sign up for free and answer some work history questions and what type of job you’re looking to see opportunities immediately!

6. Fetch All Your Receipts (Even Virtual) & Get Free Money Back

Check your pockets; check your purse. And keep email receipts.

Grab all the recent receipts you have and scan them into Fetch Rewards to earn points towards free money. Even better? Connect your email inbox and it’ll count your email receipts too from Amazon, Instacart, Shipt, and more!

Basically, shop at any store (grocery, drugstore, warehouse, everywhere and online), snap a pic with the app, and boom, you’ve got points for money. Upload your restaurant and drive-thru receipts too.

There’s no minimum spend, no need to manually select items, just scan in any receipt from any store and it’ll automatically reward you.

Be sure to grab 2,000 welcome points on us when you use promo code REWARD before scanning your first receipt!

7. Instantly Get Paid $1 for Each Survey (No Limit!)

Instant gratification is your middle name and just a natural part of your universe.

You’ll get it with SurveyTime, because you’ll instantly get paid $1 each time you complete a survey. No waiting around to accrue at least $15 to cash out like other survey programs, now you can get paid right after!

And there’s no limit either, so you can take as many surveys as you want available. You can choose between Target, Amazon, or Walmart gift cards, PayPal, or Bitcoin via Coinbase.

It’s free & easy to start. Just head here to sign up, check your confirmation email, and answer a few introductory questions.

It takes a few days until the system learns your profile to match you with the best surveys so you might be disqualified for some surveys at the beginning. Then you can take as many surveys as you want and it’ll be clear on the site how long each survey would take. On average, each could take 10 minutes with some being as quick as 3 minutes!
