On the hunt for cheap resorts in Orlando or cheap rooms in Las Vegas? What’s better than getting paid while basking in the fun and excitement of an amazing vacation! Here are simple ways that you can earn extra cash without interrupting your fabulous getaway.

Savings App: Download the CoSign app for free. Snap a picture of the cute shorts you purchased on vacation. Tag the brand, online retailer and price using CoSign then share it on Facebook or Twitter. You will earn 30-60% of the sales commission negotiated by CoSign, every time a purchase is made through the link from your image. You get paid after $40 is accumulated.

Vacation Photos: Those shots you freely post on Facebook to brag about your adventures can fetch you handsome royalties from stock image websites like Shutterstock and iStock. This may be upwards from a few cents to $100 whenever your shot is downloaded. Plus, the free app, Foap also offers this opportunity to smartphone sharpshooters every time a phone shot is sold. Earnings can range from $5 to $100 if your shots win a contest or “mission” as they are called.

Mementoes: As you explore your vacation paradise, collect rare mementoes and keepsakes that can later fetch $$ on eBay or at home.

Spend More, Earn More: Throughout your vacation, earn Reward Points+ on all purchases made with your Westgate Rewards Mastercard®. Points can then be used towards select Westgate purchases such as future vacations, Serenity Spa, dining, attraction tickets sold at the resort and so much more. Visit WestgateMastercard.com for details.
