In addition to my love of crafting, I am forever looking for ways to make some extra money outside my actual job. While I haven’t hit that million dollar idea yet, I have found a few apps that help me earn a little bit of passive income along the way.
You’re not going to get rich quick off of these apps, but they’re easy and fun, and I have been able to get quite a few goodies out of them so far!
First up is one of the more recent apps I’ve downloaded. It’s called OnMyWay and it pays you to stay off your phone while driving! (Your passengers can also earn by not using their phone. Basically, it detects your speed to determine whether or not you are driving. If your phone is locked, you earn money for each mile you go!)
As you can see, I’ve already earned $44! Of course, this isn’t going to pay you out right away. They have marathon deals that you can earn. However, it’s a good “set it and forget it” app. As long as it’s running in the background, you will earn while you drive! Click here to join! (This works best if you click the link on your smartphone!)
Next up seems to be a fan favorite, and I enjoy it because it’s another “set it and forget it” type app. You can also take surveys and refer friends, but I like to just leave it running in the background.
This too, can take some time. But there are sweepstakes entries that don’t take too many points, or you can hang in for the long haul and get guaranteed gift certificates. I’m saving up for a $25 Visa!
There is also an opportunity to enter a monthly sweepstakes for free, so give it a shot! Click here on your smart phone!
Last up is my personal favorite. slicethepie
The best part about this one is that there is a low cashout threshold of $10. Oh wait. No. The best part is that you get to review music, fashion, commercials… AND there is an option to take surveys!
The real trick here is to make sure you’re writing good reviews. Be honest and constructive in your criticism. The better your reviews, the more you will earn. It’s also extremely fun and can be accessed on your smartphone (there’s an app, or mobile web) or your desktop or laptop computer. I find it a fun and simple way to pass the time and make a few extra bucks while I’m at it. Click here to sign up!

I have plenty of apps like this that I test out on a daily basis. When I find one that works, I will share them with you. My favorite apps are the passive earners. Like a lot of people, I don’t have much time to take surveys (and generally don’t qualify for most of them) and find apps where you have to complete a truckload of impossible tasks to be frustrating. So when I find something easy and enjoyable, I love to share it!
