Readers may want to check their local thrift stores. Near my town, a thrift store called Caring and Sharing offers volunteers $4 of store credit for each hour volunteered. You can accumulate hours to save up for the item you want.
The work entails placing donated items on shelves and putting a price sticker on them.
Looks like we will be getting a free crock pot!
Field Agent is an app (Android and iPhone) that lets you earn cash by visiting retailers and performing certain tasks. A common task is an item price check with a photo. Another task is an audit/scavenger hunt (you have to find a certain type of product and how many are in stock). Pay is usually $3 and you have 2 hours once you accept a task. The app uses your zip code rather than GPS to find work near you. There are some "helpful tips" videos online.
After 5 days, I found 2 jobs within 3 miles. Jobs go fast and notifications are not pushed automatically to your phone.
Bottom Line: If you shop at big box retailers and enjoy taking photos, this is a good income stream.
Restaurant.com certificates can reduce your dining expenses and introduce your family to fabulous local restaurants you might not otherwise have found.
Enter your gift code and be sure to check the "Save this Gift Card to my account" box.
Next, choose a restaurant in your area, then select a value to add to your cart. You can break up a $25 card into 5 $5's or a $10 card into 2 $5's.
Finally, checkout. Your coupons will be in your Restaurant.com account to print at anytime prior to the expiration date (one-year after purchase). You can even go paperless with their app!
Just be aware that certificates have a minimum purchase requirement.
