Make Money by Using Reward Programs
More and more companies are offering customer rewards programs and incentives to purchase their products. Just a little push to say “hey, buy our products and will give you a little something extra”.
Did you know that the average American participates in at least 18 rewards programs?
WOW! Right? That goes to say that we LOVE free stuff. I am definitely in that category, I actually had to make a separate keychain with all those little plastic loyalty key cards on it. Who can carry all those cards along with your keys?
Out of your 18 reward programs are there any worth not carrying? I could probably assume yes. Certain companies expect you to dish out quite a bit of money in order to earn rewards. Keep in mind that there are more than just store loyalty reward programs out there. I paid for some of Christmas last year by using reward programs. This year I have started earlier and have 1/3 of my Christmas shopping done. I am going to show you how you can do the same.

Let’s Get Started Reward Programs
Don’t get me wrong they are great and will help save you money on groceries, but we want to make money. If you spend time on the internet daily? Lets talk about the three most common sites for earning points towards cash, gift cards, and merchandise. Swagbucks and My Points.
I participate in all three. However, I make more and have more opportunity to earn on Swagbucks. The basic premise behind all 3 programs is to search the internet, participate in online surveys, watch videos to earn points for cash. Each one is slightly different. With MyPoints you can make purchases through any one of their affiliated stores and you earn points. Similar to cash back reward programs for credit cards. Only better, you can use your credit card, earn points on your card and use MyPoints and earn more points on purchases. Phew! That’s a lot of points.
But here’s the thing: Some rewards programs are better than others, depending on your shopping habits and needs. Joining every program you can find is tempting, but it could wind up being a waste of your time if you never redeem any of your rewards.
Interested in FREE stuff. Yep, there are reward programs for that too.
