You’re not going to get rich with survey apps (sorry) but it’s a simple way to earn yourself some extra cash every month, or a great way of saving up for special occasions or for holiday spending money. I like to cash out in Amazon gift cards, so I can just add them to my Amazon account and save them to use for Christmas presents.
