Saving with 6abc: Get paid to use your phone

August 6, 2013

How many times a day do you swipe to unlock your phone? A lot, right?

Well now, you can earn money when you swipe. It's all thanks to the Locket app, which is free.

Here's how it works:

Download Locket and you'll get ads or offers on your lock screen. If you swipe to the left, you can open the ad or claim the deal. If you swipe to the right, you can unlock your phone. But either way you get paid one penny when you swipe!

Right now the max you can earn is 3-cents an hour. But for a limited time, you can also earn $1 for every friend that signs up.

Every penny counts and you could make hundreds of dollars a year, all for something you do anyway.

You can redeem your cash through PayPal.
