Money-Making Apps: Mobee

Mobee is by far my favorite money-making app. You're not going to get rich off of it, but it's a fun way to earn a little extra cash.

Here's how it works: The object of the game is to do some secret shopping and get paid in return for a successful mission. You download the app and it uses GPS to track your location. A map will come up pinning different stores and restaurants that need missions to be completed. If the pin is orange, the mission is available to take. If it's gray, it's an upcoming mission that will be available at a future date.

You pick an orange pin, drive to the location and accept the job on the app. BEWARE: The very first mission I did had me going to a home improvement store, but the location on the map was totally wrong. If the pin is in the wrong location, there is a feature in the app that allows you to report that.

All of the missions I have done have involved going into a store and taking a few discreet pictures of displays and merchandise. Sometimes it's a little awkward because you're trying to secretly take photos without the store employees noticing you. I haven't run into any real issues so far, but one employee definitely kept his eye on me the other day.

That being said, once you've done everything that is asked of you, your submission needs to be approved and then you earn points that you can cash out for gift cards. The gift cards are to pretty cool places, my favorites are Amazon and Sephora. The jobs pay anywhere from 150-800 points (100 points = $1), but you also get a bunch of bonus points for things like completing a certain number of missions, going to a new place for the first time, etc.

Like I said, you can't quit your day job, but it's a fun little scavenger hunt. I downloaded the app about 5 days ago and I've earned $30.

Give it a try! It's available for iPhone or Android and you should be able to find it directly in your app store or by CLICKING HERE. Use referral code: 4Z2H
