MyPoints is popular with micro-income seekers, it’s a great app offering different ways for you to earn money or “points”. They have reasonable redemption policies and make it easy to get gift-cards or cash taken out of your MyPoints account. You will typically earn rewards for completing surveys, watching videos online, and much more. You are able to redeem the points earned for airline miles, gift cards from your favorite stores or online shops, or even just a cash payment from PayPal! MyPoints is part of the Prodege family, along with Shoply, Swagbbucks, and InboxDollars. Although MyPoints was acquired by SwagBucks a little over a year ago, their 25 year track record is one you can trust!

Quick Summary: MyPoints is yet another reputable and reliable micro-earning app developed by the company Prodege. Similar to Swagbucks and InboxDollars, MyPoints users also earn rewards for completing online surveys about a variety of different topics, and are presented with offers based on their interests and profiles. Although some of the offers and surveys are similar to those other two apps, MyPoints has slightly different offerings and reward structures. MyPoints also rewards you for sharing your feedback on movies, music, your shopping experience and more. Users are rewarded for shopping online or in-person!

How It Works: First you will sign up online or through the app, creating your account and confirming your email address. The layout of the MyPoints app and website are nearly identical to SwagBucks and InboxDollars, so you should be familiar with the interface if you already have tried those other apps. Get started on your first survey, or watch a few videos, or spend some time playing one of their games. You earn rewards for each action that can later be exchanged for gift card rewards.

Blast is an app that pays gamers to test and play new games, or go deeper in games they love. There are no surveys or small jobs to complete, but each time a gamer tries one of the game “missions” in the app they typically receive a dollar. For example, Blast users can try the game Words with Friends, where the mission is “Increase your vocabulary by playing 100 words and earn a dollar.” Gamers can easily earn a few dollars a week and they also receive XP (Experience Points) that puts the gamer in the running to win a leaderboard that might pay $100. For people who spend a lot of time playing games, Blast is a fun way to track your accomplishments and save money over the long term.
