Like most people who are navigating this crazy and expensive time that we’re living in, I’m always trying to find ways to make some extra pocket money. With social media, certain apps, and a steady wifi connection, it’s never been easier to earn some extra money right from your phone. Such a bonus right?! Earning some extra spending money and you don’t even have to leave your house? How could you pass up an opportunity like that!
Over the past few months I’ve been using several different apps that are very different from one another, some being more worth while in terms of payoff (and payout) but all of them none the less have earned me some extra cash.
I want to share the apps that I’ve been using and earning with in hopes that you guys can benefit from them as well. I’ve ranked the apps in the order that I’ve had the most luck with, starting with the 8 app and finishing with the Checkout 51 app. Lets dive in!
We Are 8
The We Are 8 app is a must have app for anyone looking to make some extra money! This app works as though its your own personal manager, connecting you with major brand name companies for sponsorships!
The beauty about this app is that you don’t have to be a huge influencer or even one at all- you’ll still be sponsored and picked based on the details you provide about yourself in your profile.
Once you’re sent a sponsorship, you have the ability to accept it or deny it if it doesn’t fit in with your philosophy. From there all you have to do is follow the directions to satisfy your sponsorship, this usually includes posting the existing content they provide you with to your social media pages. But it can also be creating your own content with a product (a picture or 15 second video) and submitting that for approval or for a contest.
This app has given me the opportunity to work with big name brands like Calvin Klein, Adidas, Vans, Neutrogena, and other mentionable companies! Talk about exciting!
Since using the app, I’ve managed to earn $47.99US! The payout process is super simple and hassle free, the payment goes straight to your Paypal account and from there you can forward it to your bank account. The only downfall with the We Are 8 app is the processing time it takes for the payout to become available. After completing a sponsorship, incoming funds could take up to 45 days to become available- though it doesn’t always take that long.
Perksy is the survey app. No more gross websites that have pop ups everywhere, no more wondering “is this gonna give my computer a virus,” Perksy is the trendiest, safest, and funniest way to earn money taking quick and straight forward surveys.
Brands will send you surveys (aka stacks) to get your insight on everything from new products to marketing ideas. With each stack of questions you complete you earn points, the points can range from 30-100+ per survey. Once you reach 2500 points you’re eligible to redeem a gift card for $25 from a plethora of amazing stores!
When you have a new stack, Perksy will send you a notification so that you don’t miss it because these surveys expire! As you can tell from the photos below I’m currently sitting at 1,173 points, however the low score is mainly because I always put off doing the surveys as soon as I’m notified I have a new one and then often forget. If you’re a forgetful gal like myself then be sure to do your surveys as soon as you get notified and this app will have more payoff.
Friends don’t let friends pay pesky bank fees, and that’s why I’m introducing y’all to KOHO.
KOHO is alternative banking that you can control right from your phone! It operates as a reloadable VISA credit card, and saves you 0.5% on every purchase with cash back! Earn rewards on all purchases and never, ever pay interest.
One of the cool things about KOHO is the fact that you can send money right from your bank account to the card. When I didn’t have a credit card/VISA debit I would constantly be sending money to my KOHO account to order from Amazon, pay my Netflix, and order from Ubereats- all while earning 0.5% cash back!
You can also set up your bill payments, direct deposit your paycheques, and even set up a joint account with your significant other.
KOHO is also great for those looking to create a savings goal, with KOHO you can automate your savings goals and save as you spend by rounding up purchases to the nearest $1, $2, $5, or $10. How helpful is that? It’s money in your savings that you won’t even miss!
Join me on KOHO to get transparency into your money and earn instant cash-back! Use my promo code to earn up to $60 (and get really good at saving!)

Drop is a really cool rewards program, that gives you points that you earn shopping at your favourite and most frequent places. Just like Perksy, the points that you earn will eventually be cashed in for a gift card, depending on how many points you have accrued you can get gift cards with a value of $5 up to $100.
All you have to do is download the app and then link whatever card you use most frequently- debit or credit or both! Then just continue on with your regular shopping and let the points add up without you having to do anything.
The places that get me the most points are Walmart, Tim Hortons, and McDonalds- my guilty pleasures (lol). Make sure you chose your favourite stores to shop and earn points at wisely because once you do there’s no changing! This is the only flaw that I’ve found so far while using this app.
Drop also offers is users exclusive deals, and right now there’s an amazing deal when you sign up for KOHO through the Drop deal! You’ll earn 20,000 points if you grab this deal which is roughly $40! Kill two birds with one stone while making some extra pocket money!
I’m inviting you to join Drop, the free app that’s giving away millions in cash rewards every day! Use my code piv5h to get $5 – no strings attached.
Caddle is a cash back grocery app where you can earn cash back on certain items that you buy. I like this app because it’s updated with new offers regularly and it also features short daily surveys to earn a few extra cents. It’s very straight forward to use and definitely minimal in terms of items that it features.
When you reach $20 it’s super easy to cash out and Caddle will then send you a personalized cheque! How fun.
Try out Caddle – it’s a better way to coupon, and you get paid for watching Ads, answering Surveys, and more! Use promo code NICOLE51919 to get started with $1.00!
Checkout 51 is kind of overwhelming because it features so many items, but then again that’s also a great thing because it’s a better chance for you to earn some cash back with such a wide range.
This app gives you the opportunity to earn cash back on all household items, I just earned $2 back for my Gain Firework Scent Boosters! Another bonus (that I love) is the option to create your shopping list right there through the app so you’ll never miss and opportunity to earn cash back if the offer is available!
I’ve been using Checkout 51 to save money on my groceries & thought you would love it too. It’s super easy to use. All you have to do is look at the weekly offers, buy the items at any store and take a picture on your receipt to earn Cash Back.
Get $5 to get you started!
I hope that this was helpful and you found a new way to make some extra cash today!
Please feel free to let me know how you find each of these apps and if they end up working for you, I’d love to hear!
I am from Canada and therefore all of these apps are located in the Canadian Apple Store, however they may be available to you in your country. Just simply click any of the names of the apps in this post that are underlined and it will take you to your App Store.
