So many of us use our phones daily without even considering the fact that we can earn money from our phones.
From saving money on late Amazon deliveries to selling clothes with an online virtual closet, there’s an endless supply of ways to earn money from a cell phone.
Here are ten ways to work on your phone. 🙂

Ebates is a must for anyone who shops online or in-person.
The service is awesome – Ebates gives you cash back for shopping at your favorite online stores such as Sephora, Macy’s, and hundreds of other popular stores.
Ebates even has a free browser extension that automatically applies the best coupons to your purchases and activates cash back. There are so many times I forget to use Ebates when I’m online shopping – so the Ebates button reminds me every time I go online shopping. It’s a must.
Create an Ebates account here. Make an online purchase of $25+ and get $10 as a welcome bonus! So easy.
2. Walmart Grocery Pickup
My new favorite app is Walmart Grocery Pickup for 2 major reasons: 1) It’s a huge time-saver 2) Convenient, easy pickup. You don’t even get out of your car to get your groceries.
How to get started easily:
- Click here and get $10 off your first Walmart Grocery Pickup.
- Order groceries online.
- Schedule your pickup.
- No fees, no tips accepted, no subscription model. It is free to use Walmart Grocery Pickup.
If you’re new to Walmart Grocery Pickup, you get $10 off your first purchase here. That means you can get $50 worth of groceries for only $40.
I needed 1 substitution because they didn’t have the item I ordered, so they gave me an even better item for the same price as the original item I ordered. You also save money on groceries because you don’t even get the chance to impulse spend since you’re not in the store.
Bonus: Are you bad at picking fresh produce? Their grocery experts know exactly which to pick from for maximum freshness. If you aren’t satisfied with the freshness, you can get a refund.
Even better, once you fall in love with Walmart Grocery Pickup (which you will), you can start referring friends and family. Just get 5 friends to try out Walmart Grocery Pickup and you’ll get $50 toward groceries.
3. Take Surveys
Though you won’t make a ton of money taking surveys, it’s an easy way to make money when you’re waiting in line for coffee, sitting at a doctor’s office, or trying to pass the time.
I’ve always been into taking quizzes and surveys, so naturally, I love this method of making some extra cash.
Here are a few of my favorite surveys:
- Swagbucks ($5 bonus for signing up)
- Opinion Outpost
- Survey Junkie
- MyPoints ($5 bonus after 5 surveys)
- Springboard America
If you are a member of the US military, a spouse or parent of a US military member, or a veteran of the US military, you can do surveys for Military + Family Survey here. You can get free gift cards to brands like Amazon, Target, and Walmart for completing surveys.

Did you know you can make money by renting out a room or apartment?
If you often travel and have a vacant house, I recommend putting your apartment or house on Airbnb.
I have several friends that live in a big house and rent out a room in their home – and it covers their mortgage. Pretty incredible!
