FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

2020 is unlike any other year we've experienced but the most wonderful moment of the year is finally here. If you are new on FlipGive your should know this: The holiday season is the time of the year when FlipGivers raise the most cash for their team. Between all the gifting that needs to be done, the hosting, the decorating and the gathering, there is plenty of cash to be earned. How you might ask? Here are 10 things you can do to crush your team earnings this holiday season. 

1. Max is your holiday helper

Chances are you are going to do a LOT of online shopping this holiday season and chances are you are going to forget about using FlipGive to get it done. Download Max, our web browser extension, and he'll notify you every time you visit participating sites so you don't miss out on extra cash for your team. 

2. Shop Early, Shop Safely! 

This year has been full of surprises and unforeseen circunstances and for that reason, we highly recommend you start your holiday shopping now. Whether you want it delivered directly to your door or opt for our curbside pick-up options, starting early will allow you to avoid late deliveries, out of stock gifts, and earn more for your team. 

3. Earn on your nights in  

This season is all about celebrating each other around amazing food. Adjust to 2020 and plan holiday feasts at home with restaurant deliveries and grocery runs.
