One of the things that I wanted to do when I relaunched the site was not only develop a resource for all the free points out there but also come up with a few other ideas if you want to pick up some free cash along the way. Obviously, nobody is going to make a fortune clicking links on the internet, taking surveys or shopping at a cashback site, but there’s nothing to lose, either.
One of the easiest, and slowest, ways to make anything is with the apps from Perk. There are a bunch of them, but they all do essentially the same thing. Simply watch videos, play games, take quizzes, etc. and they’ll give you points. You earn at a very, very, very slow rate, but it requires no effort.
The sweet spot is the videos. I just leave my phone on while I’m doing something else and let it play videos over and over. Apparently, you can also let them run on multiple devices, earning you points that much faster. The points can be traded in for cash at the rate of 1,000 points equals $1.
I’ve found two of them to be useful. The first one is called AppTrailers (Apparently, one of the things you can do is watch movie trailers.). They’ll show a video, for which you get point, then some ads, then another video, etc. It pays a few more points than the other one I’ll recommend but, every once in a while, you have to click the forward button to get through an ad. How annoying.
The other is Perk TV. Fewer points per video, but I can go as much as an hour before they make me click on anything. Yes, my phone sits there, playing videos, earning points, and I do nothing.
Because both of these apps are run by Perk, your points will get pooled if you use the same user info for both. That speeds up the returns.
Note: Both of the above are referral links. We can each get up to $10 based on your points earnings. Again, this site won’t get you much money, but it takes no time. The guy who referred me says that he earns $50-75 per month. Not huge, but that’s $600-900 per year.

Top Cash Back
We’re getting to the end of the Christmas Treats game and, so far, it’s been mostly tricks for me. Top Cash Back gave me another sweepstakes entry, but give it a shot yourself and see if you win something. Just visit the merchant of the day and click on the bird carrying the Christmas present.
