Hey guys! So I cover a lot of different methods for making money here on Young Retiree. Most of them are tips and strategies for how to grow a sustainable business from home. But another thing that I will suggest a LOT are the different kinds of ways that you can save some money fast and easy.
One of my favorite ways to do this is through money earning apps. Believe it or not, I make an extra $2,000 every year from just 13 different free apps on my Samsung Galaxy. If you want to know all 13 of these apps/rewards programs,I wrote up the list right here.
The latest money making app I’m loving is called Fam.ly. And here’s why…
How Is The Fam.ly App?
So this is basically how Fam.ly works. You watch videos on the app, they pay you cash to your PayPal. The more you watch, the more you earn. Sounds like a lot of other apps, right? I mean, Inbox Dollars and Swagbucks offer the same kind of thing, right? Well… not exactly.
Other video watching apps like Inbox Dollars or Swagbucks force you to watch whatever boring videos they want. And most of it is just ads. Fam.ly, instead, pays you to actually watch the viral videos on YouTube! From cute animal videos, to comedy skits, to eye-popping recipes, you can scroll through a huge, constantly renewing list of popular Youtube videos and choose the ones you like! See below:
You don’t even need to watch them! If you’re sitting watching a movie, on the internet, or even at a desk at work, you can leave the videos playing with your phone face down on the desk. Let the cash just add up.
What Kind Of Money Can You Really Earn?
Fam.ly, like every other money earning app in existance, is not meant to replace your day job or your own business. If you want to build a business that’s going to pay all your bills, buy you the things you want, and fund your world travels, you need to be looking into real business opportunities like affiliate marketing, or starting a dropshipping business. Fam.ly is instead of way of putting some fast extra cash in your pocket to spend on what you want, without really having to work for it.
Fam.ly uses their own coin system, called “famcoin”. 1,000 famcoin equals $1. So if you’re only watching videos, it can take a long time for the money to add up.
But there are a number of easy things you can do to make at least $5 per week ($260 per year, to lend a little perspective), and even some ways to make hundreds and hundreds of dollars through Fam.ly(some of my fellow users cash out over $1,000 per week).
Here are the things you can do.
Follow and Share
Fam.ly doesn’t only pay you to watch videos. One way you can make more money quickly is to follow or share channels that you find on Fam.ly.
If you find a video that you really enjoy, share it with friends or a member of your family. Friends and family share hundreds and hundreds of videos with each other every day… you’ll just be getting paid for it.
Checking In, Quizzes, etc.
Yes, as a matter of fact, every day you hit the Check In button in the Fam.ly app, they pay you for it. On top of that, you can hit the Open Fam Box button every hour for extra cash, or fill out super short quizzes.
These little activities take absolutely no time, or even brain power, but they help the money to add up faster.
The Referral Cash
So how are so many Fam.ly users earning hundreds of dollars every week with this new app? Fam.ly has a unique referral program, and this is where the largest amounts of money come from with the Fam.ly app.
Every time you invite a friend to use the app, and they download it and start using it, you get $3. That’s pretty small, right? But here’s the thing – you also get paid every week from then until the end of time for every single time your referral/friend uses the app and watches videos.
This means that you can be paid completely passively, just by other people using the app. Refer 1 friend and you may only make an extra $1.00 per week (which, by the way, would bump your yearly money from $240 to $312…). But refer a few dozen friends, and you could be making a lot of money through this app very fast.
This might be something that you just start with your friends and family. Set goals. You all want to go on a vacation, go to a concert or show, buy a new TV – share the app with each other, watch the videos, and then start sharing them with your friends. The more you share it and spread the word, the more money you’ll be making it.
To spread this effort into a multi-thousand dollar hustle, spread out to the internet in general. There are dozens of Facebook groups where people are looking for apps just like Fam.ly. Introduce it! If you have a blog or a big following on social media, you have even MORE of an opportunity. Get hundreds of your readers to sign up!

If you’ve read much here, you know I’m picky with these kinds of things. Time is very very valuable. Especially as a business owner. I would never recommend you use something that pays little, and takes ridiculous amounts of your time *cough survey sites *cough.
But Fam.ly is definitely on the list of money earning apps that I would recommend.

Great review on Fam.ly! I’ve used apps like Swagbucks before and I’ve done great with them. Like you said, just play the video and let it run on it’s own while you do things on the side.
The only problem I have with these apps is that you can’t really use it to replace your full-time income.- You’ve mentioned this.
However, if you’re just bored and need a bit of entertainment plus sandwich money. This is not a bad option.
Hey Eric, thanks for commenting!
Swagbucks is another awesome option. But you’re absolutely right, these are not sustainable business ideas or sources of income that can actually replace a job or a business. That’s not what they’re for.
I make an extra $2,000 every year using just a few of these apps like Fam.ly. And you can make significantly more than this is if you actively promote and recruit people to them. But $2,000 is not by any stretch of the imagination a livable income, even in a month, let alone a year.
Still, Fam.ly is one of the easiest ways to make some extra money – movie tickets, coffee, some Facebook advertising – it’s always nice to have extra change without having to work for it.
Thanks again for dropping by!
