4 apps that can earn (or save) you money in the UAE

If you fancy making a little extra cash, these ingenious apps are your knight in money-making armour. No, seriously though, these apps should be six of your new best friends.

TaskSpotting

To break it down even further, you could have anything between AED10 to AED75 sent to your PayPal account or donated to a local charity just for completing missions which could include being a mystery customer, checking retail stock and so forth.

The Entertainer
While you won’t get instant cash back, you do save a lot of money and bag some serious bargains with their buy one, get one free offers which ranges from hotel accommodation to leisure attractions to five-star dinners. Just remember, you can’t use the app on public holidays.

Beam
Supposedly “designed to make payments easy and beneficial to the customer” this app allows users to pay for various items such as petrol, coffee and cinema tickets without the use of cash.

Groupon
We’d be lying if we said you made cash using this app but while you don’t make any money, you do save a lot. And by a lot we mean a lot. For example you could save a few hundred Dirhams - AED250 to be exact - on Fast Track and 007 Tickets at the Burj Khalifa or pay AED10 for vouchers worth AED300 to spend on sunglasses and sunglass frames. Or, if you’re the art loving type, you could save up to AED2, 985 on an online drawing and painting course at Dynamic E-Course. Not bad at all.
