40+ Companies That Reward You For Sharing Them

Did you know that there are companies that will reward you for sharing them with your friends?

A list of over 40 companies who reward you for sharing their company. This list contains all sorts of companies--including those that sell razors, clothing, cleaners, organic foods, coffee and more.

 

Before I had a blog I just had a Facebook account. On that account I would often share great finds with my Facebook friends. Often companies that I shared offered what they called referral links, which made sharing their company very simple and rewarding.

I say rewarding because often these companies would give me something in return for the business I brought them through referral links I shared on Facebook. Sometimes it was extra points that I could cash in later for gift cards. Other times I got store credit that I could cash in for free product.

Yep, you read that right. You don’t need to have a blog to benefit from these referral programs. However, there are a few friendly sharing rules you need to follow.

Friendly Sharing Rules

  • Share only companies you have tried out and like.
  • Share links sparingly so as to not to become annoying (I suggest no more than one or two a week mixed in with regular social media updates, like pictures of your cute baby, etc)
  • Explain why the company would be beneficial to your friends for example instead of saying, “Please use my links I desperately want the $10 referral credit so I can buy my purchase at a deeper discount!” Say “This company has great prices on woman’s clothing plus when you use my link you get $10 off your first order.”
  • If you have a blog, you must disclose that the links you are sharing through social media sites related to your blog are referral links. If the link goes to a blog post, you have to disclose it in the post.
  • Before you share think, “Would I share this even if I wasn’t rewarded for it?” If the answer is no, don’t share.
  • If a friend asks questions about the company, make sure to answer them promptly and be 100% honest.

In other words–obey the rule of  people over profit.

Over the years I have discovered a large amount of companies offering referral links and I thought it would be fun to list them all in one blog post. And yes, these are all referral links. One of the benefits of being a blogger is that I now have one more place to share my finds and my referral links.

(psst…I did break my own rule and shared a few for companies I have not personally tried, but come highly recommended from bloggers I trust simply because I wanted to make this list as big and helpful as possible. A website that might not be a great fit for me might be a great for you.)

4 Of The Best Websites For Earning Cash In Your Spare Time

StumbleUponFacebookShare

(post contains affiliate links: see disclosure)

I have tried out dozens of survey sites and what I like to call point reward programs. I enjoy spending time figuring out how to best earn cash or gift cards from each program so my readers can get straight to earning.

4 of the best websites for earning cash in your spare time! There are people earning $100 a month or more with these sites--all from the comfort of their own home.

The geeky side of me loves doing it. I love messing around on each site figuring out which point earning actions earn the most points in the quickest amount of time.

Now that I am more than 4 years into this blogging thing, I have had time to see which sites are consistently offering their members new ways to earn money. I can tell within a short while of using the program if it is what I would consider a high income earner or a low income earner.

Below is my list of the top 4 programs I have found to date.

These programs offer everything I look for in a good point rewards program.

  • A variety of ways to earn points.
  • At least one fast way to earn points.
  • Low cash out values so you are not waiting forever to earn a reward.
  • A PayPal cash out option so that you can apply your earnings to whatever you want to.
  • A reasonable wait period from when you order your reward to when you receive it.

4 Of The Best Websites For Earning Cash In Your Spare Time

Swagbucks

The other programs on this list are not in any particular order, but there is a reason why I put Swagbucks first.

In my opinion if you only want to mess with one point rewards/survey program, Swagbucks is the one you want to join.

Swagbucks offers over 20 different ways to earn points–called SB–and they offer new ways to earn points on a fairly constant basis. A lot of those ways to earn are probably for things you already do online like web searches, shopping, purchasing daily deals and printing coupons.

Back before I was a blogger I earned a $5 gift card from Swagbucks each month just for using them as my homepage for web searches and nothing more. I was essentially being paid to do something I was doing for free.

Of course, it is possible to earn much more than $5 a month with Swagbucks. I have readers who report earnings of $100 a month from Swagbucks.

However, I think it is more than worth your while to join more than one point rewards/survey program. Variety opens up your ability to make even more money. Joining several programs allows you to do the quick earning point tasks at each company, which leads to earning more money per month in the long run.

PrizeRebel

PrizeRebel currently offers 9 different ways to earn. There are a mix of quick and simple ways to earn points such as following them on you favorite social media platform and keeping your eye out for codes you can enter into the site for points or watching videos. They also offer many different survey options.

My first cash out from PrizeRebel took just over 24 hours to receive, but since I became a Silver member my Paypal deposits have come within minutes of ordering them.

That is another thing I really like about PrizeRebel, they have a member level system. The more points you earn the higher you go up the system. As you go up the levels you start earning bigger discounts on cash outs–meaning your points go further and you get faster cash outs.

InstaGC

See the “insta” in the name? That is my favorite part about InstaGC: their rewards are instant. The only exception is the Paypal, Direct deposit, or e-check option which can take up to 7 business days.

However, they do offer Starbucks gift cards starting at $5 and Amazon gift cards starting at just $1. Those are usually what I cash out for. InstaGC is currently my mom treat account. I use it to pay for the coffees I drink while blogging away from home and the discounted e-books I fill my kindle with.

InstaGC offers many different ways to earn, but my favorites are listening to music through Radio Loyalty, clicking through to sites, and watching videos.

MintVine

MintVine doesn’t offer a long list of ways to earn, but it does offer a great survey selection and I really like how quickly their system either allowed me in a survey or kicked me out and offered me another. With some survey sites you can spend way too many precious minutes just waiting to get into a survey, I didn’t find that at MintVine when I tried it out.

These 4 programs will help you turn those little moments in your day into money making moments.

 If you are wondering just what little moments of my day I am referring to for using these programs, here are some ideas.

  • Download the apps for Swagbucks and set the videos to roll while you are getting ready for your day.
  • Listen to Radio Loyalty while you are working on the laptop and set your phone timer to remind you to look for the point earning code to enter into InstaGC every 30 minutes.
  • Snuggle up to your sports loving hubby and do a few surveys for MintVine while you watch the game.
  • Put your laptop beside that big pile of laundry you need to fold and enter into the video area of PrizeRebel and earn a few points as you fold.

Psst…want to try out even more programs? Check out my list of all the point programs I have tried and read what I have to say about them.

10 Ways Thrifty Families Cut The Cost Of Summer Fun

StumbleUponFacebookShare

(post contains affiliate links: see disclosure)

Taking part in summer fun can be hard on the wallet. However, it doesn’t have to be when you know a few thrifty tips to help you cut the cost of summer fun.

10 ways to save money on summertime activities.

10 Ways Thrifty Families Cut The Cost Of Summer Fun

1. Summer Reading Programs

Most libraries hold summer reading programs for children that come with some awesome prizes such as coupons for free ice cream from local businesses. In our town we are blessed with a library that runs a summer reading program for kids, teens, and adults. The different age groups often get the same rewards so our family can go for a round of ice cream together free of charge.

2. Free Community Events

Concerts in the park, parades, and more are just some of the free community events offered by many towns and cities. Check out your community’s newspaper for a listing of events.

Also don’t forget to look for low-cost rainy day activities such as free bowling or free summer movies offered in many communities.

3. Use What You Have

Sand can be scooped into a reused plastic ice-cream container  just as well as fancy sand bucket. Bubbles can be made out of dish soap and water. The lawn sprinkler is the original splash pad.

Chances are you have plenty of materials sitting unused in your home that could make for some great summer fun. Go treasure hunting.

If you are coming up empty handed, search Pinterest for some ideas.

4. Create A Playground Group

My friends and I did this when our children were little and it was a lot of fun. Before summer begins, get your friends together somewhere or start a Facebook group where you can all chat, and create a list of local public parks in your area. Also note who is willing to have the whole gang over to play in their own backyard.

Pick a day and time that works well for everyone. On playground day pack up the kids and a snack to share and go to the playground of the week.

We usually threw in at least one backyard pool event each summer too.

10 ways to save money on summertime activities.

5. Cool Treats At Home

Nothing says summer more than cool treats like ice cream or popsicles.

Save your wallet some serious strain by purchasing these treats on sale at your local grocery store and serving them as a family treat (psst…save even more with these 6 grocery saving apps).

Perhaps Friday night could be ice cream sundae night or Monday afternoon could be popsicles after sprinkler time in the backyard.

Of course, you can save even more money by making your own popsicles. Simply invest in a high quality popsicle mold like this one and fill it with whatever your heart desires (search Pinterest for homemade popsicle ideas).

Another fun summer thing to try is making your own ice cream. My family enjoys making this simple, 3 ingredient, no machine ice cream recipe, which we add our own flavorings to.

Psst…sometimes it is nice to take the whole family out for treats. For those nights use gift cards earned from programs such as Swagbucks (see my list of 18+ point reward programs to figure out which point program suits your family’s lifestyle).

6. Use Coupons

For Summer trips to the water park, try daily deal sites like Groupon.

For coupons for cool treats, look in that junk mail–it just might surprise you what you find. Also don’t forget to sign up for email programs offered by ice cream shops in your area, chances are they will send out coupons from time to time in their emails.

7. Split Treats

My husband and I love a quick date to the local privately owned ice cream shop in our area. To keep the price down (and our waistline too) we split a banana split or strawberry shortcake.

8. Pack Food

Invest in a family sized cooler and it will soon pay for itself when you start filling it with snacks and drinks for your summer day trips.

A cooler also comes in handy for mini trips too, such as a morning at the park, or an afternoon at the beach.

Buy each member of your family their own insulated reusable water bottle or cup and make sure to  fill them up and place it in the cooler before any outing.

Keep several freezer packs in your freezer so that if you forget to take them out of the cooler one time you are still ready to go for the next trip. Simply grab one freezer pack out of the freezer and place the one you forgot about in the freezer.

Make sure you also have containers to pack lunches in too. My family has used these 2 compartment lunch boxes for years for our road trip picnics.

9. Raid The Dollar Store

Yes, it is true most dollar store items are not long-lasting, but sometimes summer items don’t need to be.

I find the sun fades our summer toys no matter what I have paid for them so when my kids were little I spent perhaps $10 to $15 each summer on new shovels, pails, beach balls, sidewalk chalk, jump ropes and more to keep the kids busy in the backyard all summer long.

Don’t forget to check the art supply section for craft items that will come in handy on those rainy summer days.

10. Resell Your Items To Create A Summer Fun Account

Pretty much every year I either hold a yard sale, a Craigslist blitz or I go crazy listing things in Facebook Buy and Sell Groups and the proceeds go towards our annual summer family camping trip.

My Reselling page is full of tips to help you get the most for your items. I also have a printable checklist that will help you go through your house room by room grabbing as many things as possible to resell. My motto is toss clutter & gain cash!

There is nothing better than a bright and airy home free of clutter and a pile of cash in your hand in exchange for your hard work that you can then go spend on building some fun summer memories with your family.

Summertime can be fun without being a strain on the wallet.

What do you love to do in the summer time with your family?
