Making Money With Apps
It has been about a month and a half since I really started trying to get paid from my iPhone apps. This is an update on my progress from the various apps that pay you which I have written about so far: Field Agent, Checkpoints, Apperang, and Swagbucks. Although Swagbucks has 2 Android apps it still doesn’t have an official iPhone app yet. It seems like the longer I participate in these programs the better they get, not only am I gaining more experience at it but it seems like the companies are providing more opportunities. If you are looking for a good source of part time supplemental income I highly recommend all of these companies.
Mystery Shopping With Field Agent
Field Agent- This one is by far the most lucrative app I have used. I reached 100 points and $62.50 from 14 mystery shops by last Friday. When I cashed out it took them 2 days to put the money into my Paypal account as promised. Also they don’t charge you any fees to cash out through paypal.
I didn’t receive anymore jobs until today around noon. I got a push notification that said there were jobs in my area that were first come first serve. I managed to do 8 of them in a few hours bringing my total number of jobs completed to 22 and my total earnings to date up to $104.50. I can’t stress enough how easy this is to do, most jobs only take a few minutes to complete. They usually require a cell phone picture and a few questions to answer. The vast majority of jobs I have done were at Wal Mart but I have also done them at Rite Aid, Costco, and Kohl’s, as well as 2 surveys that I was able to do at home. The Field Agent app is definitely well worth the time it takes. One interesting thing I have noticed is that the employees in some stores will start being much nicer when they see you doing your mystery shops. Mystery shopping is a really great fun way to earn supplemental income and this is the best way to do it that I know of.
Paid Scavenger Hunts With Checkpoints
Checkpoints- I really think this app is the most fun. I love going around the grocery store when I am shopping to find things to scan for points. I cashed out my first 6000 points which was worth $20 in Amazon gift cards on January 17th. I was a little nervous about it because I read a few reviews in the Amazon store about people who did not receive their earnings. I received my gift cards in exactly 1 week. I believe that if you don’t violate the terms of service by doing things like posting your referral code in The App Store you will get paid. The second cashout I made was on January 24th for a $10 amazon gift card which I received within a few hours. Checkpoints seems to continuously be getting new products to scan. This app doesn’t pay as well as Field Agent but it is a great addition to use while shopping or mystery shopping. My referral Id is sodaguy it will benefit both of us if you sign up with it, thanks.
As of July 2011 Apperang no longer pays you to install apps
Apparang- This is the website that pays you to download new apps. This is not a really big earner yet but I believe it has potential. For the few seconds it takes to check when I’m syncing my phone it’s well worth it. So far I have made a total of $3.14 with 3 referrals. I have not downloaded any paid apps yet but I probably will in the future. I have gotten some pretty cool apps from here including Groupon. One little tip I have is that even though it says free apps verify immediately sometimes it takes a few hours. Waiting almost always does the trick rather than trying to sync the phone again. Apparang pays to Paypal immediately with no fees and a minimum $1 cashout. I really prefer to get paid to use apps rather than paying for apps. I also really like how question 27 in their FAQ clearly states that you have to use Apperang although there is no mention of what happens if you don’t
Since you can no longer use Apperang to get paid for downloading apps I decided to post a couple of alternatives that I have been paid by. Both of these sites offer additional opportunities besides just paid downloads. I have personally been paid by both of them.
WeReward pays you to download apps, answer questions, buy products, and check in to stores. I have been paid $15.05 in Paypal cash from them so far in about a year. There is a $10.00 minimum cahshout and they only pay by Paypal. There is a decent referral program that pays %10 of whatever your referrals make.
Appredeem pays you to rate apps that you have downloaded. They also have an app called Apptrailers that pays you to watch short videos about apps. I have been paid a total of $4.09 in Paypal cash. The minimum cash out is .15 via Paypal, they do offer other prizes such as Amazon Gift Cards, Starbucks Gift cards, ans Itunes Gift Cards at higher levels. There is a referral program that pays the referral and the referrer. The point values tend to change on this one but my referral code for Appredeem is sodaguy, thanks for using it.
Swagbucks Get Paid To Search On Your Smartphone
Swagbucks- I decided to include Swagbucks, even though they don’t have an app yet, because I use it on my phone all of the time and I really like it. There are so many ways to rack up Swagbucks and turn them into gift cards, cash, prizes. So far I have earned 2213 Swagbucks with 2 referrals. My first cashout was 1350 Swagbucks on February 1st worth $15 in Amazon gift cards, I just received them today. I made a second cashout a few days later but have not received it yet. I will probably have enough for 1 more $5 gift card by today or tomorrow. I believe the Amazon $5 gift cards are limited to 5 per person each month which is a bit of a bummer but oh well I can wait. I really appreciate referrals and will be happy to answer questions and give tips to any of my referrals.
All of these companies provide great ways to make a little supplemental income using your iPhone. Between all of them they seem to be at least paying for the monthly iPhone bill. Everyone of them has paid me exactly how and when they promised.
