If you have an Android phone, and like to earn money online, this article is for you! I’ll be showing you all the ways you can earn by using your phone. The internet has opened up a whole bunch of sweet earning methods for Android users. Making money with Android apps is really simple, but not all of them are legit. So in this post, I’ll be giving you my favorite real money making apps for Android – no scams or shady sites.

Here are the best money-making apps for Android!



If you love to shop, Ibotta is the app for you! Ibotta is what is called a cashback app. Using a cashback app is the closest thing to getting free money while you shop. True to its name, a cashback app will give you back a certain amount of cash whenever you shop. So it’s like an automatic rebate program. They only catch is that you will have to shop at Ibotta-certified shops. But that’s not a big hassle. In fact, I like it since it makes me check out shops that I would have overlooked if it weren’t for the cashback promo.

In some instances, you will also have to provide a scan of your receipts from the appropriate shops to confirm that you’ve shopped there. When the app confirms the purchase, you get your cashback rewards. Ibotta is one of my favorite Android money-making apps!



GrabPoints is one of the most prominent names in the rewards site scene (okay, that was a handful). The site has been around since 2014, which is like practically forever in internet years. This is a good thing since most shady rewards sites don’t last very long – once they screw over their members, they go underground, only to emerge soon after under a new name. But that’s not GrabPoints . The site is totally legit – not only that but they’ve distributed over $5 million in earnings since the site began!

The earning methods on GrabPoints will be familiar to anyone who has used a rewards site. But for those who are new to this, you earn on GrabPoints by doing simple online tasks. These include answering surveys, watching videos, and completing offers. These are super easy to do, and when you complete a task, you get to earn points. You can later redeem these points as either cash (which is sent out via PayPal) or as one of their many gift card options. You can request a payout when you earn at least $3 worth of points.

There are tons of legit rewards sites out there, but there are two reasons I’m recommending GrabPoints. First, they’re the highest-paying rewards site on the planet! No other pays as good as GrabPoints, period. You won’t get rich doing tasks on GrabPoints, and that’s okay. They never promised that you’d be able to afford a fancy vacation using GrabPoints. And that’s a good sign – most scammy rewards sites will make promises that are simply too good to be true. Second, payout processing on GrabPoints is super-fast. As mentioned above, you can request a payout as soon as you reach $3 in earnings. That’s really easy to reach. And once your payout gets processed, you can expect to get your earnings in 48 hours. That’s blazing-fast. This means you can rely on your GrabPoints earnings if you have something scheduled, like a night out with friends on the weekend, or a trip to the grocery.

GrabPoints doesn’t have an app anymore. So you don’t have to install anything. But their site is mobile-friendly, meaning you can use it to earn on most devices – including your Android mobile phone!



I’ll admit, sometimes I just want to switch my brain off after a long day at work. But I feel the time spent resting could be spent earning. Slidejoy is a great solution to that problem. Using Slidejoy is a pretty no-brainer way to making money on your Android Phone. In this case, “no-brainer” isn’t an insult, it’s a feature. This is the perfect way to earn money by using your phone without having to use too many brain cells.

Basically, the app works in the background and feeds ads to your lock screen. And that it’s. Running the app will add a barely-noticeable amount of time when you unlock (aka “slide”) your phone. But it’s not a big deal, and the earnings more than make up for it. You can also earn on Slidejoy by completing offers and referring friends.


Receipt Hog

Here’s another cashback app, much like Ibotta. You check out available offers from Receipt Hog, then you shop, then you get paid. Easy and super simple to use. Like Ibotta, you will also have to send scans or pics of your receipts. I like using multiple apps for this purpose. If I don’t like any offers on one site, it’ll be easy for me to switch and check out the offers on another app. That way, I maximize all the shopping that I do! When it comes to saving money, cashback apps are always a go-to for me.


Feature Points

Feature Points is another legit rewards site. It gives you lots of ways to cash out, including all sorts of sweet gift cards and actual cash, which is sent via PayPal (always my preferred way for getting my earnings). Earning methods are what you expect: answering surveys, referring friends, and online watching videos.


Shop Savvy

Shop Savvy has to be one of my favorite Android apps of all time! It changed how I shop – for the better, I must add. The app has a built-in barcode scanner. Whenever you scan a product, the app will let you know if the same item is available in a different store, and for cheaper! This has allowed me to manage my budget more wisely. Shopping is no longer the same for me. And you know what they say: money saved, is money earned!
