Cell phones are not cheap. At an average of $85 a month for a smartphone, that’s almost a $1,000 a year – not including the cost of the phone.
But some savvy people like Teresa Kannenberg are earning back some of those dollars by making money on their cellphone.
ABC News caught up with Kannenberg as she grabbed a shopping cart and headed into Target, where she planned to make some money.
No, this mom doesn’t work at the store. Rather she shops with apps that pay her back.
Smartphone apps that will pay you to watch videos
Watch some videos and make some money. These apps allow you to watch anything from short videos to movie trailers. Like other apps that allow you to earn money, some reward you in gift cards or directly deposit money into your PayPal account.
Swagbucks TV: Watch your choice of over 1,000 movie, DVD and game trailers, scenes, interviews and comedy clips. For each video you watch, you’ll earn Swagbucks; which can then be used to redeem gift cards. The app is free to download and available on iPhone and Android phones.
