Apps & Sites | Money Routine

The following is a list of apps/sites I use or have used in the past divided into sections of what type of stuff you do to earn. Each one includes some basic info and tips plus some even have dedicated pages full of tips for them.

If they are linked or include a code, it’s my referral link! So if they don’t have a link or you don’t want to use my referrals, just search for them with your favorite search engine instead.



To qualify as a “Variety” site/app, these ones have to include any combination of Videos, OfferWalls, Surveys, Search, Downloads, etc and some of the features have to be made by themselves, not a third-party (like EngageMe for instance for videos). These usually pay big cause the vast amount of stuff you can do and the unique exclusive features.


These sites/apps are mostly a “wrapper” around offerwalls and 3rd-party video providers like EngageMe, VideoLab, and VideoLoyalty with nothing provided by themselves. Not the fastest earners but if you are a busy person, most of these run with 24/7 with very little intervention!


These apps play videos 24/7 with little to no intervention. Unlike the Offerwall and Variety categories above, these ones use videos by themselves and not a third-party provider and also it’s the only thing they do.

Social Networking

These sites/apps aren’t going to be fast earners but if you make stuff online (like videos or art), you are already going to promote it so might as well earn a few cents from it.


These sites/apps run 99.9999% passive and pay you for your data. One of the slowest but most consistent and least effort earners. However if you don’t want to sell your data even for a reward, avoid these.


Faucets are sites that pay you for completing a captcha every so many minutes or hours. Most of them pay in Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies which means the amount you earn can change value at any moment so keep a track on BTC prices and withdraw as soon as price drops significantly to minimize loss.

These won’t be included in the earnings below because of Bitcoin’s constant price changes.


These sites/apps require more effort but (usually) pay high amounts each day by doing small manual labor like Surveys, translations, transcriptions, recording audio/video, and more.


These sites/apps pay you for renting your phone’s lockscreen to show ads. You can use as many as you want but keep in mind that the more you have, the longer it will take you to get to what you need on the phone. These only work on Android due to iOS limitations.

These sites/apps allow you to earn ad revenue either by actual ads on your site or a “redirect” page with an ad on a shortened link. Can be effective if you have lots of people viewing your content that will click links but be warned as a lot of them have some bad ads that can give viruses so choose carefully.

These apps pay you for searching like you would normally on Google, Bing, etc.



These ones I used to do but stopped because I either couldn’t get them to work at all, they take way too long to do, or are scams you should avoid.

Passive Interest

Once you’ve earned money via the above sites, you should put some of it into these sites to earn interest on them if you aren’t actively using it all.

Savings Accounts

Savings accounts earn slowly but are very stable and consistent. There’s two main types, “normal” which allows up to 6 withdrawals per month in case you really need the cash and CD (aka Certificate of Deposit) which has no withdrawals unless you pay a massive penalty but usually has higher rates for more earnings.

I use Ally Bank as their normal Savings accounts has one of the highest rates at 1.15% APY (most are under 1%, usually like 0.01% so it’s massively better).

For Bitcoin, you can use as mentioned above.


Stocks are very volatile! Don’t go crazy and lose everything!
