Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - We're all looking for ways to make an extra buck or two, what if you could make money for things you're already doing?

Well, you can. You can be rewarded for simply watching TV, some of the same shows you're already watching because there's an app for that.

Thanks to the free smartphone app Viggle, what looks like a time waster can actually turn into a money-maker. Sound good?

To get started, you download Viggle for free in your App Store, set up an account and then start racking up points. Those point turn into real cash.

How it works is simple. Open the app and let your phone "listen" to the show. It usually figures it out within seconds. And tells you how many points you can earn for watching the entire broadcast. Right here on WDAY you get 50 points for Modern Family or 50 points for watching the View.

There's no cheating, you have to watch the whole show

Viggle also shows you which shows are worth more points and offers you chances to earn extra points by watching commercials or playing games.

Once you accumulate points, you can cash them in for gift cards; Starbucks, Best Buy, Sephora, Target, Barnes and Noble, movie tickets…real rewards.

One simple download gives you a whole new way to watch TV.

You'll also want to check out the Viggle Chatter section so you can talk about your favorite shows with other fans watching the same shows you are, on TV Chat, Facebook or Twitter.
