I just tried out Get Upside the other day. It is not available in my area but I was traveling so I figured I would give it a shot. But every time I tried to upload my receipt it would fail, and since there is a time limit, I wasn't able to get my reward. Not a great first time experience. I just started using a newly launched app that gives cashback for purchases with many big retailers and in the future they are introducing more local ones as well as a cryptocurrency that you will also...

@Moore Income Sorry to hear about your experience with Get Upside. I haven't had that issue. I signed up for Dosh but haven't used it yet.

@Ana the cashback is not that much honestly and you have to have $20 before you cash out but most cashback sites have a minimum. I have had the most success by referring other people.

Kidazzler, super easy and I love the idea of building a kid friendly searchable database. We don’t launch until March, but my current potential monthly earnings is over $1500.

I use CoinOut, Fetch, Receipt Hog, and Dabble apps for easy peasy $. I'm also using several mystery shopper apps and have been successfully paid. Referrals would be appreciated and returned. Just send a message or FB message for links. Thanks

A lot of the cash back apps don't seem to require you go to the app before shopping. You just link your credit card, forget about it, and when you happen to be at that store, use the credit card. I have Dosh. I got $5 for signing up and just got 2% on a Sam's Club purchase. There aren't that many offers in my area, and some offers aren't available from my local franchisee (Dunkin Donuts, for example, is listed, but my local Dunkin isn't listed as a local merchant.) Swagbucks has some shop...

We did some work with Shopkick (I work at The Penny Hoarder) and I couldn't believe how loyal their users are -- they have a serious fan base! People who use it absolutely love Shopkick, so much that they sometimes spot each other at stores. Something interesting I didn't expect was that a number of the people we interviewed use the app not only to earn/save money (by earning kicks and redeeming for gift cards) but also to lose weight, because the app motivates them to walk a lot.

Checkout 51, Savingstar You can do surveys and earn gift cards too. I have good luck on Pinecone and MyPoints and Microsoft rewards(I do their daily searches and quizzes. It only takes a few minutes in the morning and I earn enough points for a $10 gift card every month).

Have you heard of imoney? You earn cash, it adds up fast and you’re not doing surveys or scanning or seeds or anything like that. You’re doing simple tasks involving the Apple App Store. It is for iPhone users only and you can make extra for referrals on top of what you’re already making for doing the tasks. This is probably my favorite one and I’ve done a LOT of apps!

I use an app called SPENT Money, which is a cashback app. It gives 1 percent back at Whole Foods and also gives money back for Uber. And it does the data entry for you. It pays out via PayPal.

Ebates - earn money when you shop via stores on Ebates. Ibotta is a great way to earn money while you shop. Check out Fetch Rewards. Turn any grocery receipt into savings! Shopkick - Earn points toward a free gift card while you shop in stores or online - Get Upside - earn money back when you get gas for your car. I can privately send you the links to the apps with my referral codes in which you will earn a bonus. Just let me know. Are there any others that I should check out?

All this great advice and just 2 days to Christmas, oh well. Long story short: practical and useful gifts are the best gifts to receive, at least for me. Really who among us has enough dust collectors that often become relegated to a closet or drawer and later when we 'declutter' donate these unwanted and unusable things or regift them to someone we think (and hope) might enjoy them and use them? I couldn't tell you how many useless and nonsense gifts I 've received over the years at work...

Because I'm a fatty and my friends are fatty, giving cheap gifts is easy. I just buy some food online and ship it to them, and they me. Examples include, say, olive oil from a boutique place in California. Or if I just went to Italy and really enjoyed some biscotti, I might buy that specific brand of biscotti (+optionally amaretto for them to dip the biscotti in) and ship it to my friends. The great thing w/ food is that 1) it's much cheaper than like a watch, and 2) it's much easier to buy...

Among gifts that don't end up being clutter ( like knicknacks aka dust collectors, unwanted clothes etc. that often end up in a drawer or closet and end up being donated or regifted to someone who hopefully would like or use gift provided it hasn't been used or regifted to the original giver or a friend of the giver, tacky), I have a saying about Christmas gifts: 'If I can't drink it or eat it I'm not interested, thanks". Over the years I like a lot of others have accumulated a lot of...

If you don't know what they want or need, novelty t-shirts or hoodies are great go to's for me, but then you have to agonize over getting their size right. Also, books are great and so are subscriptions to magazines or an online publications.

Are homemade gifts a cop-out?

Joshua Pramis ·
I know the holidays are behind us, but gift-giving opportunities — birthdays, anniversaries, etc. — come up throughout the year. But I'm also curious about your thoughts on my approach for the holidays this past year. As someone who is childless, but with an ever-growing collection of nieces and nephews (six and counting, all of whom I adore), I decided to forego traditional gifts in lieu of something homemade. I have a deep passion for baking, so I opted to put together treat boxes for the...

Re: Are homemade gifts a cop-out?

Of course not - a gift is a gift and it's the thought that counts. In fact, if you can cook I prefer you give me something to eat. Reason being once I'm done eating, the gift is gone. I don't really need friends/family giving me watches and a bunch of other stuff that eventually just turns into junk and I'm too shy to say 'uh yeah no thanks I don't need another watch/bag/etc'. But food? It relieves me of the pressure of having to reject anyone because I can just eat it and won't have to...

Personalized treat boxes for kids is a great gift! Homemade gifts in general can be among the best kinds of gifts to receive. I have some quilts and afghans my grandmother made and they are among my most cherished gifts/possessions. Not to mention I've been using them for years to keep extra warm during the winter.

No, I certainly don't consider homemade gifts a cop-out! A gift is a gift and its a thoughtful gesture of caring. People may be surprised to receive a small homemade gift if they are used to extravagant gifts from a person, but they can adjust their expectations. A handwritten message on a card is also a very thoughtful gesture. Its just so rare today!

@KellyFromKeene I agree! I included a little note in each treat box, too. I thought it was a nice touch to show there was some thought behind the gift.

Re: Are homemade gifts a cop-out?

As someone who has given homemade gifts for many many years, I just add some thoughts from errors I made along the way. As much as a handmade gift should be appreciated, it bears some research as to what the recipients' tastes are. I started out giving gifts that were fun and of interest for ME to make and that can be the wrong approach. If the recipient never uses the gift, you literally are left with "it's the thought that counts" and while that may be sweet, it can become wasteful of...

Your gifts were thoughtful and you took the time and effort to make and give them. This year I made gifts that I knitted and/or embroidered. I did purchase some gifts. I like to try and match my gifts to the person’s personality. I like to give something that the person can use. I like to think that the gift is something that the person will cherish.

Re: Are homemade gifts a cop-out?

@mintjulep That's a really good point! Their tastes definitely need to be considered to make sure they truly enjoy them, too, otherwise it becomes a waste in the end. This year it was a surprise for them; next year I might ask ahead to see if there are specific goodies they like/want — and then surprise them with which ones I follow through with.

I've made quite a few gifts for family members. I don't see anything wrong with it at all! And aren't the holidays supposed to be about being with our loved ones and not about the amount spent or number of gifts given?

Every year my brother wants me to make his favorite cookie. I put other gifts in the box, but he really just wants those cookies. I love making them too as I just do so at the holidays.
