We all know “there’s an app for that.” Usually we’re referring to apps that make our lives a little bit easier somehow. But what if there were a bunch of apps out there that’ll actually pay you to shop? Whether it be through earning cash back by purchasing stuff we’d be buying anyways, or simply paying you to snap a pic of your receipt, these apps all have the potential to help you earn some significant money. What’s more helpful than that?

Swagbucks is a cash back app with a twist — namely it focuses on surveys as its primary business model. You download the app, pick a survey to complete, and earn “Swagbucks” when you complete it. The cool thing about the surveys is they tell you exactly how long they will take to complete, and the number of Swagbucks you’ll earn. For example, a six-minute survey will give you 50 Swagbucks and the questions are very simple, opinion-based questions. Earn 500 Swagbucks and you’ll be eligible for a $5 gift card from Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart or Target. Sitting in the doctor’s office waiting room, or maybe at the DMV, complete a Swagbucks survey or two, and before you know it, you’ll be treating yourself to a free Venti Frappuccino.
