Mobile Performance Meter

Mobile Performance Meter is an app that run in the background of your phone and reward points. You can get around $5-10 in gift cards per month per phone when using it.  May require that your phone have a data plan.  I have used the app on phones without a data plan, but some friends are telling me it hasn’t worked for them.  I know their support team has told me they are very picky about not only what phones they approve but also locations and other factors to approve activating the accounts to start earning points.

You can earn anywhere from 10-30 points per day.  I wait till I have earned 500 points to cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card.  It costs more points per dollar if you cash out less than 500 points.

Yaarlo is a receipt scanning app that also provides discount shopping opportunities.  Unlike other receipt scanning apps that offer points per receipt or coins, this one offers actual cash.  Scan any receipt that isn’t older than two weeks (14 days).  Whether you purchased anything from any of their listed stores and deals or not, scan your receipts with the app.  You can also email them with your e-receipts from online purchases like Amazon or eBay.

DealSpotr

Dealspotr lets you post deals you find, similar to Slickdeals, but you get points you can use towards Amazon gift cards.  There are several ways to post deals:  Codes, coupons, site-wide deals, product deals, in-store or online, freebies, etc.  As you post deals, you get points for them, points for completing daily checklists, and points based on your accuracy score.  The higher your accuracy score, the more points you earn for your work.

You can also validate or correct other posts from other users.  This earns you points and helps your accuracy levels as well.

Minimum payout is $10 in Amazon gift cards.  You have to earn 10,000 per $10 gift card.

Click Here to Get Started! You will receive 2000 points for completing sign up and an additional 2000 when you complete your first daily checklist!

WHAFF

WHAFF is an app that pays to download and run apps, which I use like CashPirate but I still use both. It sets up your account by logging in with your Facebook account.  It pays $0.05-$0.10 per app download that you open, if it is in their premium list. It then pays for daily use of 4 minutes or more, and a daily keep it on your phone payment. Plus you get paid for using apps daily that you might already be using! After it is done paying out for use and keeping it on your phone, you can uninstall the apps you don’t want to keep using.  Watch out for having a VPN or anything like that running on your phone at the same time as using this app!

HitPredictor

HitPredictor is fun for those into testing out new music.  

I enjoy it cause I get $5 Amazon gift cards periodically for listening to 10-15 song samples and providing a little review of them of one or two sentences (they will email you when those contests come up, usually weekly on Wednesdays).

They also have contests for $50-100 Amazon gift cards as well as Hidden Song contests for $15-25 iTunes gift cards (I use those to buy the paid iOS apps on BestReviewApp).  They limit it to the first 50 people to listen to and review the 10-15 songs for the contests.  

The points they give per review can add up fast and be used towards purchasing CDs, DVDs, or entering giveaways for Amazon gift cards, iTunes gift cards, or other prizes.

CashPirate

CashPirate is an app that gives coins from downloading and running apps as well as other offers. Download the apps they list, run them, and get coins!  Some apps can be installed and opened for 30 seconds then uninstalled to earn coins.  Others require downloading, running for a minute or two, and keeping on your phone for 3 days to earn coins.  I personally put notes on my calendar to go back to the 3 day apps and either remove them or keep the ones I like.

They also offer doing surveys for coins.  The surveys will say how long they usually take and the number of points awarded for completed surveys.

I cash out at $5 increments since it is the best value of coins.

Click Here to Download the App then enter code “PRBKHE” at signup for an additional 500 coins.

Cross Media Panel

Cross Media Panel is run by Google and basically it tracks your search history… which they basically already do. So why not get paid for it? When you first sign up you will receive a First Week Install Incentive which is based on how many devices you attach it to. The number of devices attached also affects the rest of the weekly Incentives, up to $3/week. Cash out minimum is at $25.

$1 for having it on your phone each week.

$1 for having it on your computer each week.

$1 for having it on your tablet each week.

They have a wide range of gift cards and other benefits with the option to donate to charity.  Payout is almost immediate, usually within 24 hours.

Welcome

My name is Jack and I have been working on this since around April of 2015.  Apps come and go, so I constantly work on updating this with what is relevant, what takes the least amount of effort, and what simply looks fun to try.  I have made thousands of dollars in cash and Amazon gift cards using all of these apps and programs since I started, and that isn’t even using them to their fullest!  I hope you get as much, if not more, out of them as I have.

Contact me here with any questions, suggestions, or to request the invitation codes for some of these programs to get their sign up bonuses.  

These all work in the USA, but some may not work in other countries.  I am working on getting that figured out and will update the listings to indicate the countries where these programs do work.

I am also working on identifying if these are websites, Android apps, iOS apps, or what other platforms are compatible with these programs.

Contests will be coming soon!

Thank you and Enjoy!

ChargerPay

ChargerPay runs when you are charging your phone/tablet and not using it.  It plays ads during that time and starts accruing points.  Every 100,000 points pays $5 in gift cards (I always prefer Amazon gift cards).  

I have reached 10,000 points/day usually (running it on two phones and a tablet).  I have gotten paid over $15/month since using it. I use an app with it to keep the screen on all the time as well as diminish the screen brightness to use less power, called Screen On.  Without it, usually the screen will time out after 30 minutes and the points stop accruing until I turn the screen back on.
