Need some extra cash? In this article, we’re sharing the best money making apps for students to help cushion their wallet.
Many college students will reach a point in their studies where the struggle of juggling both an education and a job just doesn’t feel feasible. After all, pouring excess time that could be spent improving your grades into a part-time work environment may pay the bills, but it doesn’t do much for your education. As it turns out, there are a ton of money making apps out there that allow you to work online — more than you might expect.
Here are 10 best money making apps for college students.
Notesgen is the perfect app for students to make money. All they need to do is to share or upload their notes to help other Notesgen users to start earning some pocket money for their efforts. The platform allows students to upload handwritten notes on various courses and subjects or for competitive exams.
This is an app that allows you to make money by taking photos. You can charge as much as you like per photo, which means that your money-making opportunities through Foap are virtually limitless. People are always looking for a huge variety of photos, and you may be surprised at how much money you can make with a photo of your cat.
If you have old books you want to get rid of, use this app to sell them. Scan the barcodes with your smartphone, and Bookscouter will let you see comparisons of payouts from more than 20 book buyback companies. Once you find the best offer, fill out some information about where payments should be sent, and ship the books to the buyback companies.
Take photos of your receipts and receive rebates using this app. Sign up for a free account, download the mobile app, and click on “Rebates”. Here you will find loads of great offers. Rebates will vary depending on the product and the promotion.
5. Survey Junkie
Survey Junkie is a legitimate way to earn extra cash while you are waiting for the bus, on your lunch break, or even when vegging on the couch. I like to earn money with Survey Junkie as I wake up in the morning. Survey Junkie is 100% free and easy to sign up.
Once signed up, (which takes less than 1 minute), you can start taking surveys on the go, from anywhere on your phone! With Survey Junkie, you can make the most money in the least amount of time (compared with many other sites)!
GigIndia is another great money-making app for college students in India. They can make money online by working with popular brands and companies and performing easy gigs, part-time jobs, and work from home jobs. They can also apply for paid internships on the app. The app is currently available only for Android.
SquadRun is a useful app for Indian students where they can earn rewards called SquadCoins for completing various tasks. The company says they convert business activities of large companies, including Flipkart, Snapdeal, Ola, etc., into small missions that are completed by users. The missions include giving feedback, tagging images, categorizing products, etc. SquadCoins can be sent to users’ Paytm wallet or redeemed for PayUMoney points.
Lemonop is another good app for college students and freshers to find part-time gigs, short-term internships, and work from home projects and get paid. They can find opportunities in their areas of interest like food, travel, blogging, marketing, content writing, photography, music, hosting, fashion, coding, and graphic designing among others. The app is currently available only for Android.
Slidejoy belongs on this list because it is without a doubt one of the easiest money-making apps out there. I am not saying this because it’s going to make you rich. It won’t. But it will make you a cool $5-15 per month according to the developers.
OfferUp is one of the most convenient and flexible selling apps I’ve ever used. You can list your items, just like Craigslist, but your buyers have profiles you can check out. Plus, if you don’t want to meet up with strangers, you can opt to ship your items to them instead and get paid with PayPal.
