Introduction: How to Make Passive Cash Online

Picture of How to Make Passive Cash Online

After months of combing through garbage incentive websites and apps that promise the world and never deliver, I'm finally done. I've completed my collection of websites and smartphone apps (Android/IOS) that will earn actual PASSIVE CASH. That means you basically sign up, and do nothing. And I mean nothing. No ad clicking, no surveys, no captchas, no downloads, NOTHING. I calculated the ones that are confirmed to pay out (because they actually paid ME), and you can earn an estimated $145.33 per month in cash and gift cards, $4.00 in one-time cash outs, and other random goodies, completely passively. Good Luck!

Step 1: Apps

Picture of Apps

Mobile Performance Meter – $1 Amazon Gift Card/Code every 3 days

Just install and get 30 points per day!. Easiest money since Nadamobile! **CONFIRMED**

Fronto – $1 Amazon Gift Card/Code

Don’t allow the lock screen or do any of the surveys/tasks, just check in everyday for five days and you’ll earn enough for a gift card. Use this invite code for extra points: yiTuK7Y7o7P **CONFIRMED**

MobileXpression Research – $5 per week

Similar to Mobile Performance Meter. Just install and ignore it! **CONFIRMED**

Screenwise/CrossMediaPanel/Google – 1-2$ per week

Similar to Mobile Performance Meter, but run by Google! Just install and ignore it! **UNCONFIRMED**

Panel App – $1 Amazon Gift Card/Code (1500 points/1.5 months) or $5 Visa Gift Card (5000 points)

Similar to Mobile Performance Meter. Just install and ignore it! Earns 33 points per day. **CONFIRMED**

AppOptix– $10 Amazon Gift Card/Code per 12 weeks (25 points/week)

Similar to Mobile Performance Meter. Just install and ignore it! Earns 25 points per week. Earn $10 after 300 points. Email confirmation necessary. **CONFIRMED**

Shop Prize – $5 per month (after 20 daily check-ins and about 16 receipts)

Simply check in everyday and take a pic of every receipt you get or find on the floor. (I pick up about 5 every time I go grocery shopping) **CONFIRMED**

I have tried the big four receipt apps and Shop Prize pays the most. But if you still want to reuse the receipts you have, then try ReceiptPal:

  • ReceiptPal– 25 pts per receipt/400 pts for $1 Amazon **CONFIRMED**
  • ReceiptHog – 5-20 pts per receipt/1000 pts for prize – Not worth it
  • Yaarlo – 1% of receipt total, Paypal – minimum $10 – Not worth it

List of 21 Daily Check-in Bonus Apps – $8.90 per month

These two have the same rules as Fronto (above). If daily check-ins are your thing (like me) than go for it **UNCONFIRMED**

Slidejoy– About 200 points/day, or $2 every 10 days

I usually don’t recommend Lock Screen apps like Adme, or S’more, (while they ARE technically passive) because they earn very little cash and end up wasting too much of my time. Slidejoy is pretty fast to load and release, and it has to option to pause or stop the lock screen during busy hours. **CONFIRMED**

Step 2: Websites

Earnhoney– $5-10 Amazon Gift Card/Code per two weeks
Sign up, don’t do any of the surveys/tasks, and just leave the “watch” tab open all day. Right click the tab and click “mute tab.” **CONFIRMED**

NadaMobile- $1-2 Amazon Gift Card/Code per day

Sign up, don’t do any of the surveys/tasks, and just leave the “watch” tab open all day. Right click the tab and click “mute tab.” You don’t need to click the “Next video” button, just get an auto refresher for your browser like: Super Auto Refresh for Chrome or Tab Auto Reload for Firefox. Go to the Watch page and set the timer to 2 or 3 minutes. Leave this tab open all day (no need to babysit)! **CONFIRMED**

Qmee – varies, about $0.20-0.30 per week

If you happen to do a particular Google/Bing/Amazon/Ebay search, a side bar will pop up with some PTC ads. Click the paying ads ($0.05-0.09 each), wait for the piggy bank icon to glow red, then go back to see if you can get more. Check the weekly Reddit list of search words at least twice a week to maximize profits. **CONFIRMED**

Points2Shop– $1 USD, mailed Simply sign up under my referral link and you’ll have 100+ free points, which is enough for a free physical dollar bill that will be mailed to you. I know, right? **CONFIRMED**

Empower– $5 per day

Sign up, Select $5 on the earning slider, and maybe make 1 post. Somehow this earns you cash, and you can cash out after 90 days. They email you every time you earn another $5, which is daily. Likely a scam, but just in case I’m wrong, get in on this. **UNCONFIRMED**

Listia – varies, free yard sale goodies

Sign up, link as many Facebook/Twitter as you want, and you’ll get 1000+ free bonus credits. Select “free shipping” items and search for things you may want (aim low). Fun, if you like dicking around on Pinterest… **CONFIRMED**

Swap Caps – $2, free yard sale goodies

Sign up and get 250 free bonus caps. You can order $1 Amazon gift cards for 100 caps. Don’t dawdle though, the points expire in a month. **CONFIRMED**

Cash4Essays– ???

Still have a bunch of old essays and reports from school? I do. Been on the waiting list for three months. If they pay for one, I’ll dump the rest. **UNCONFIRMED**

Step 3: Lotteries

Picture of Lotteries

Spend a total of 2 minutes per day opening these pages to see if you won, with no work involved! I’ve concluded that these are the only legitimate free lotto sites that actually pay out.

The Street Lottery – **CONFIRMED**

Bitcoin Lottery – NO WINS YET

Number Plate Lottery – NO WINS YET

My Lucky Patch – NO WINS YET

The Selfie Lottery– NO WINS YET

Step 4: Bitcoins

Earn about $50 per month

Hopefully, you already know what thesse are and got yourself a free online bitcoin wallet.There are plenty of “passive” ways to get free bitcoins online. Most are wastes of time.

Bitcoin FaucetsNO! HUGE waste of time, maybe if you have do-nothing desk job, you can earn $0.25 in satoshis in 8 hours, but honestly you could just do surveys for more money. This page is just for PASSIVE money. Bitcoin InvestingNO! Most are scams – check the List. UPDATE: Currently trying out AIMBTC, will report results soon. Bitcoin MiningNO! At this point, not worth the expense or investment in mining equipment.

Bitcoin Cloud-Mining MAYBE! Go through my list of 35+ cloud-mining sites that do all the work for you with no deposit necessary. It’s like earning through the faucets, but without doing the captchas:

(Update: 35 sites now, is dead)


Step 5: Final Words

Picture of Final Words

I couldn’t in good conscience give you a list of daily sites to visit without adding one more important link. As long as your opening those daily lotto pages, maybe open one of the links from the lists below. They are collections of daily “free-click” sites that let you give to charities without donating (I do not earn anything by sharing these links).

This all started with that Free Rice site, but now they make you answer a question before clicking. Anyway, thanks for looking!!

Good Luck!
