Last week I did a tv segment on mobile apps that actually earn you money while shopping right from your Smartphone!! Since summer can be a financially slower period for many, I thought today would be a good day to share those apps. It’s incredible to me that these apps exist, and in case you didn’t know any/all of them, here is that TV segment. I have also written them out for you below.

Direct link to segment:


1. Field Agent


You turn into a field agent for some field work, carrying out small missions in your neighborhood. You’ll get instructions of what to do and where to go, places like your local shopping mall, grocery store, Walmart or any landmark. Simple jobs like snapping a photo, or completing a survey and you get paid to your account which gets withdrawn anytime to Paypal.

Field Agent jobs usually pay between $6-8, however they’ve paid up to $150/job to their SUPER AGENTS for certain jobs!

Just download the app to your Android or iPhone, check in with Viggle button and start earning points by watching TV or listening to music.
