Probably, every student wants to earn extra money, even if his or her parents provide financial support, or there is a scholarship. However, combining education with full-time work can be not such a good option. This can badly influence student’s academic performance. Thus, you may think of a part-time job.

There are many ways for college students to make money without losing their study progress. In addition, I am going to tell you about some of them. This article is about top 6 money making apps.

1. iBotta

Every week (find out when exactly for your state in the application), the cashback (or moneyback) refunds for the purchase are updated in the app. Previously they had offers from popular brands, which was inconvenient sometimes. Now they have a new option – “any brand” or certain goods of any brand. After completing a task, you take a photo of your receipt, send it, iBotta confirms that they accept the task, and you get your money. There are other tasks a little bit more difficult. Check them out, if you are interested, after downloading the iBotta app.

But, there are some nuances – you need to take photos of your meals, yourself while exercising as proves of your activities, and also you need to download some apps (for example, RunKeeper, Fitbit, Jawbone Up, MapMyRun, MyFitnessPal).
