Stuff We Need: Points, Money, Miles…

Don’t Keep this information safe, don’t keep it a secret…

Are you looking to save more money or earn more money for an amazing trip?

Here are some of the apps that I use to do just that. I have tried and tested each one of these services and will vouch for them each and every day:

Ibotta– Cutting and clipping coupons is now a thing of the past. Ibotta make rebates as simple as buy, snap a picture, and submit the rebate. I have earned over $780.00 dollars in rebates from Ibotta, and all rebates are paid through Paypal. If you use my referral code, qffkbsh we will both get a referral bonus. Think of it as a free $10.00 from me to you!!

Mobee– My secret shopping go to App. With over 600 secret shops for Mobee, I can say without hesitation, I love this App! And, I have added thousands to my bottom line. Use my referral code, RGTB and we will both get a $3.00 bonus!

You can also read more about Mobee thoughts and successes through this link.

Shopkick – I love to get paid for just walking into stores. And, Shopkick pays me to that. This has been one of my staple rebate apps since I downloaded it. Use my referral code, COOL557908, and we will both get 250 “kicks.”

Job Spotter – I love this app! All I do is snap two photos and I get paid! By far, the easiest of the apps I use. I have earned over $600.00 with this app and continue to earn money each week. When I cash out, I receive a Amazon gift card which I load onto my Amazon account. There is no referral bonus, but, you can thank me later!

Fetch Rewards– A really enjoyable app that offers coupons and rebates for a variety of products. Simply scan the receipt for the selected item and money is rebated into your account. Use my Fetch Rewards referral code, NC9EP, for a 2,000 point ($2.00) referral bonus.

Uber – I have reallygrown fond of Uber and use them repeatedly when I’m in the Twin Cities and extensively during my stay in Puerto Rico. If you need a free ride, anywhere, use my referral code, ericw21190ue, and give them a try. We will both receive a referral bonus which we can apply to future rides.

Fiverr – What do all successful business men (and women) have in common? They make use of great talent wherever they find them. Fiverr allows me to do just that and outsource my business needs in the form of ‘gigs’ around the world! The vast majority starting at only $5.00.

Many aspects of Average Joe Arbitrage’s success can be accredited to Fiverr. And, if you need something, I encourage you to try them out. In fact, if you would like a FREE gig, I can refer one to YOU! Just email me and I will refer you to Fiverr!

Lending ClubI have used Lending Club for multiple loans; it’s fast, it’s easy, it’s convenient to my schedule. If you need a loan, I would recommend checking out their loan and interest rate offers. Just do me a favor, always shop around for your loans! I have an Average Joe Arbitrage loan referral and if you use it, and after you make your first payment, I will get a referral fee, which I will split with you Joes! That’s a $50.00 commission. Too you! My referral code is Member_128757271

Freedom Unlimited by Chase – Chase has made me an offer of earning a referral fee of $100.00 for everyone I refer to them and who is approved for a credit card. In addition, they are offering YOU a bonus of $150.00 after you spend your first $500.00 with 3 months. That’s a sweet bonus! Average Joe will happily split my referral fee with you 50-50 if you are interested. That’s a cool $50.00 cash in hand, which will go a long way towards your first credit card payment or a sweet dinner!

Just be advised, Chase is limiting (at this time) my referral commissions to just five Average Joes per year (I am working to get that raised). If interested, just copy and paste my referral link in your browser-

HQ Live Triva Game ShowThis is a downright, FUN app! Combining all the fun of a game show with the convenience of an app on your smartphone and a chance to win money daily, I play this game everyday.

The premise of the game is simple; answer 12 trivia questions, in rapid fire succession, and the winners will split a $5,000.00 dollar pot. Cash payouts are twice a day, as the game is played twice a day.

If you could do me a favor, use the following referral code, zoey185. This is a referral code for Ms. Sarah, one of my original Average Joe fans, who turned me on to the game and as a big THANK YOU for the referral, I told her I would use her referral code here.

The referral code gives the player an additional “life” when playing HQ and affords them a do over when a answer is submitted incorrectly. This really a fun game and if you like answering trivia, you will be quickly addicted.


Business Motivation and Insite

When Average Joe needs some business insite, motivation or inspiration these are the sources I go to:

Gary Vaynerchuck – Gary is the one person who can punch you in the mouth and you will thank him for it. Seriously. I listen to Gary everyday. Sometimes for only five minutes. Sometimes much longer. I don’t agree with how he says everything; but I respect everything he says. Gary is the one friend we all need telling us that we need to work hard, be patient, and not worry what others think of you.

Grant Cardone – Grant Cardone is the Drill Sergeant of business motivation. No rainbows and unicorns here. Just Grant telling you plain and simply, you gotta be motivated, you have to work 25 hours a day and you better take responsibility for your business. I love it!

Grant is my go to source for a kick in the ass each month. I prefer his audiobooks which are narrated by Grant himself. These are well worth the investment!

Chris Guillebeau– One of the original travel hackers, Chris is on a mission to help the average person improve on many levels. His Side Hustle podcast is utterly fascinating and I listen to it on many of my frequent drives as he explores how Average people like us are making more money every day.

Tim Ferris – One of the original life hackers, Tim is a go to source for me on many topics; personal improvement, business hacking, and travel hacking. I have listened to him for hundreds of hours; some of his podcasts many, many, multiple times. I use his books as a go to reference source for improving my game.
