Unexpected Rewards Programs the Reward Things You Already Buy

When it comes to saving money, reward programs are an excellent way to do so. However, many people tend to over think what rewards programs they should choose. Instead of choosing a program for activities you do sparingly, you will get the most benefit for activities you do every week or even every day. These can often be unexpected, but there are a lot of reward programs out there.

Papa John’s

Let’s be real here, you probably order pizza more than you realize. It is fast, easy, and delicious while cooking for yourself is difficult and often less rewarding. Fortunately for you and your functioning pizza addiction, one of the best rewards programs out there is Papa John’s. Each order nets you points depending on what you order and what you spend. Those points add up surprisingly quickly towards what we all desire – free pizza.

Walgreens

With your health insurance as expensive as it probably is, medicine is one area you don’t expect to save on. However, if you frequently need to go to CVS or Walgreens to get your prescriptions filled, you can save. Walgreens actually beats out CVS in terms of rewards programs since it allows you to accrue points and then put those points toward hefty discounts on your purchases.

AMC

This rewards program probably depends how much you actually go out to the movies. For some people, they go on a date near every week while others only go out maybe once a year. However, if your city is overrun with AMC-owned theaters, as most cities are, you can actually get some great discounts with their rewards programs. From discounts on snacks to free movie tickets, you can accrue them all with the AMC Stubs programs. However, in return for the flat discount rates it also give, you have to pay a yearly fee of $12.

Side Hustles That Require Very Little Effort

If you want to get into the side hustle game to start earning a little extra cash, you don’t want it to eat up every second of your free time. There is nothing worse than realizing that all your after work time has suddenly become even more work time. However, while a lot of side hustles can expand into some long hours, there are a few that require minimal effort on your part.

Dog Walking

Dog walking is actually a great way to multitask if you want to hit the gym, but also want to make some money. It is a super easy business to break into, especially if you live in the bigger city where not everyone can get home to take their dogs out. Providing the dogs get along alright, you can even walk them in larger packs which can save you on time while still making you a good deal of extra cash.

Be a Notary

While it takes a small initial investment to become a certified notary, it is as easy of a side hustle as you can get. You get to charge your own fees and you can run your notary services however you’d like. You can charge more if you are the type of notary that will actually go to the person, but with cheaper prices, plenty of people will still pay to come to you.

Proofreading

Unlike blogging or ghostwriting, your time won’t get completely sucked up with proofreading. You can easily fall down the rabbit hole with actually writing for money, but if you are an avid reader with a decent grasp on the English language, less sure writers will pay you for it. Some writers don’t even care about proper grammar, they just want you to make sure it sounds good and is easy to understand.
