New Series: Make Money With Your Smartphone! iPhone and Android Apps That Earn Money!

So I gave in and finally bought an iPhone yesterday.  (This is a long story... if you want to cut to the chase, just sign up for and use referral code yummydoors0 after you download the app.) My free months with Cricket ran out yesterday (from a mystery shop I did almost a year ago) so I had to find another service that I had to pay for.  Ouch!  I hate paying for anything!!

I was about to take my old T-Mobile MyTouch 4G and just go get a Simcard from T-Mobile and use their $50. per month pay as you go plan.  I could manage that and the Android market has a lot of great apps too.  And I love my old T-Mobile MyTouch 4G phone!!  It is easy to use and I know how to use it.  You know how you get a phone that is sooo different, take a while to get used to it, learn how to use all of the features and such then for some reason (like an expensive mobile plan) you stop using it and have to switch phones?

Well, I used a Tracfone for a while.  It is sooo cheap and easy to use!  I even got one for my daughter who is on the Autism Spectrum and she uses it to tell me she got on the bus.  Not that autistic persons need a simple phone, she is the one who teaches us how to use ALL of the electronic gadgets, software and can hack into all of her online games when needed (not the hacking part!).  She is just not into texting like other teens and doesn't need that many texts available.

So, long story short, the Cricket phone free months came to an end.  The service is really stinky inside of stores and we needed a phone with awesome coverage and won't shut down in the middle of using an app!  So, I got a great deal on an iPhone 5s at T-Mobile with hubby's employee discount (check with your employer for mobile carrier discounts, most big companies offer this.)

You know what, I am not paid to talk about mobile phones.  I am not even paid to write this blog AT ALL!! I just wanted to tell you my story about mobile phones because #1 I love techy gadgets and #2 I am always looking for a deal and #3 I want to get something back when I buy something (like money, Yeah, Money is Good!!).

Now on to the money making part!

One of my Facebook friends who knows about my recent surgery and resulting paralyzed vocal cord, sent me a message about a few iPhone apps that I can do mystery shops and audits and earn money.  Well, that is exciting!!  So, I immediately did a google search on each app name and found out that most of them require an iPhone.  But, a few do support Android devices (yay for Android!).  I downloaded all of the iPhone apps which I will blog about in a future blog (but soon)!

Also, I found out about a few sites which pay you to watch videos and do simple tasks like download apps.  The first one that I have actually cashed out with is  Please use referral code "yummydoors0", don't laugh, that's the name they insist on giving me!  

So far I have cashed out for $3.59 after playing on the app watching app trailers, downloading apps (that later I deleted), watching short videos and leaving tips on apps I downloaded.  The payout for Paypal is $0.50 for 500 points.  This morning I've been using the app on and off for a couple of hours and am up to 1431 points.  I'm not even totally paying attention, just watching videos on and off on my phone during little breaks blogging and checking facebook while using my computer.

So, after you download this app to your device (use any apple device, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and also Android devices) DON'T FORGET TO ADD MY REFERRAL CODE "YUMMYDOORS0"  (that's a zero).  I would greatly appreciate it.  Think of it as a "thank you" for the information I give about work at home jobs (since I don't get paid!).

Go for it, don't forget to use my referral code as a "thank you" for this great info, it's: yummydoors0.  :-)

UPDATE BAD news and GOOD NEWS!! Make Money Reading Online Articles! Researched Lead.

**UPON FURTHER RESEARCH (and thanks to reader misseb) I have come to the conclusion that this is not a trustworthy website.  I have been reading the news stories provided by Circumnews and earning money in the account, working towards the $350. payout.  My computer has not been negatively affected.  *But, according to this website: Online Threat Alerts, the website is not a trustworthy site.

Check out the link for yourself (above).  Readers on the Online Threat Alerts website have commented that they have not received payment and downloaded a virus after requesting payout or trying to contact the website manager.

Here's more info about what Circumnews is offering:

I ran across this lead last week on  There are a few people who are reading articles with this company and earning money for each article read.

If you read my last article you know that I am looking for ways to make money without having to talk on the phone, so this gig is perfect for me!  I know  some of you may have the same kind of need to do non-phone work for different reasons, so I am posting this info for all of us!

The company is called Circumnews.  All you have to do is follow my referral link and sign up as a user.  All I did was fill out the email and password.  I used an email through gmail that I tend to use only for jobs. I also used a unique password that I don't use for any other logins.  After giving my email and password, I simply clicked sign up.  Then I clicked READ NEWS.  A list of articles will pop up.  All you have to do is click on the article, click on the hyperlink to the article, go back to the Circumnews page, click "Confirm" and do the simple task to confirm that you are not a bot.  Then you will see the article payment amount added to your "Finances" at the top of the page.

Once you get to $350. you can cash out.  Payments are added to your Paypal account 14 days after you submit for payment.  This is called "NET14".

Please post in comments once you get paid.

*Bummer, right?  Well, I feel really bad for getting excited about this lead then finding out that it is just BAD NEWS!!  So, I have a LEGIT lead that a lof of people HAVE been paid and continue to work at.  

**So the good news is that there are still pay-per-task websites that are legit. One of them is Postloop.  Now I HAVE been paid by Postloop.  But you actually have to do a little more work.  It's just commenting on message boards to keep up conversation.  But, you must type so many sentences that make sense.  So, a little work a for a little money sounds about right.  Right?

IMPORTANT UPDATE!! My Surgery and Recovery info, New Work At Home Plans, My Pain Can Be Your Gain!

Hello again!  If  you saw my most recent posts on my blog's Facebook page, you know that I just recently had surgery and am taking time off of work to recover.  

My surgery was on November 1st to remove a parathyroid gland that developed a tumor.  The gland was very difficult to extract and in the  process the surgeon severed a nerve that connects to the vocal cord.  Because of this my voice is affected and I cannot work on the phone for quite a while.  :(  Sad, I know.  Believe me.. I am still in shock.  Because I will be unable to work on the phone for a while my bank account is going to go into shock too!  So, I have to improvise and find a way to make money without being on the phone.  

Also, I have an ugly 5 inch scar at the base of my neck where they did the incision.  This will eventually heal and blend into the folds of my neck (hopefully not too many folds!).  To hide the scar and not scare small children and those with weak stomachs, I am wearing scarves.  I am also making scarves and plan on starting an Etsy store.  Please let me know by commenting below, if you are interested in learning more about opening an Etsy store.  I can blog along the way and we can learn together!

The good news is that I can share what I am doing to make money while I am recovering and give all of my friends who wish to work from home new ideas to bring in the cash when we are unable to work outside the home.

First of all I'm going to ask all of you to share my posts so that I can increase my blog audience and actually make a few bucks.  This way I can afford to keep writing the blog and not spend every waking moment listing items on Ebay(and please share My Ebay Listings too!).  Do you need tips about selling your items on ebay?  Ask away!!

Second, I need my readers to ask questions about working from home.  When you ask questions, other readers may have the same questions and this will help everyone in their work at home journey.

Ok, so lets do this!  I'll be checking my blog for questions a couple of times per day.  Now, remember that I am only a few days out of surgery so if I don't respond right away I probably am drooling on my keyboard, hunched over the desk, taking a nap.  Once my hubby finds me and wakes me up, I will at least comment that I am still alive and will be back to answer questions once I can type something coherent!

Also, I welcome comments on my blog's Facebook page.
