Making money is not an exciting subject. Most are living paycheck to paycheck, hoping that you did your math right.

This month is super tight for me. I switched jobs, took a pay cut, and went from being paid bi-weekly to once a month. On top of that, my September check was only for two weeks. To say that my money is thin is an understatement. But I’m not writing this post to have a pity party. I am so thankful that my Erin got a raise and an active bonus program and plans ahead better than I do. I am writing this because I actively seek ways to make a little money on the side.

I have found little ways to at least feel ahead, whether that is the case is up for debate.

My favorite company that I just recently found is Perk. They have a variety of things you can do to earn points, from checking at places to trivia and even watching your normal television shows. I like Perk for the variety of things that can be done. A lot of it is mindless things that don’t even need your attention very often.

So many places only have one or two ways to earn points, and a lot of it is shopping or taking surveys and answering the same three questions over and over and over and over again. But I feel it is so different with Perk. A possible hassle, they have different apps for each thing. The apps are AppTrailers, Perk, Perk Scratch Off, Perk TV, Perk TV LIVE!, Perk Wallet, Pop Quiz!, Rewards Reader, and Viggle. That’s a lot for one company. Could you imagine having nine apps to get access to all of Facebook?

So I have the AppTrailers app for when I’m sitting at my desk, to let videos run to gain points while I’m working.  I check into Perk before I leave my house, and as I park my car and walk to work. Perk Scratch Off for mindless game with instant gratification; Viggle for cuddling with my husband and watching TV. I just switched up my schedule a little bit, instead of watching videos on Facebook, I open Rewards Reader and get points for keeping up with politics and celebrities.

This is starting to sound like a negative post, when it is actually a very positive one. I’ve been using Perk for a couple of weeks now, and have just redeemed and got a $5 Amazon card. Perk pulled through; of course, I was skeptical if it was going to pay me or not. But I just applied it to my Amazon account, and I trust Amazon to keep it there (also, I just found out that if you put $100 towards your Amazon ‘gift card’ you get a bonus $10).

Ultimately, if you are looking for a little game of real incentives, I truly suggest to give Perk a try. If you join through this link we both gain. If not, you are still welcome to use the referral code, a8d3d12c.
