Google Opinion Rewards
It perhaps comes as little surprise that Google has an app of its own
that you can use to make money. With Google Opinion Rewards you earn
Google Play credit by completing surveys. You’ll receive a notification
whenever a new survey is available, and you just need to spend a few
moments answering a series of questions – there’s nothing too taxing!
Once completed, survey earn you credit that can be used in Goole Play to
buy apps, music and other things. It’s worth noting that many of the
surveys have a deadline for completion, so make sure you don’t wait too
long to complete them.

Rather than store credit, MintCoins gives you the opportunity to earn
yourself cold, hard cash. It’s an app that helps you to earn money in a
number of ways. You can gain virtual coins by downloading free apps, by
watching videos, registering with websites, and referring your friends
to do the same. There are also surveys to complete, and as soon as your
balance hits $1, you’re free to withdraw your earnings to a PayPal
account – or you can wait and let it build up for longer if you like.

Google Opinion Rewards is not the only survey-based app that can be
used to pull in a little cash. iPoll works in a very similar way
providing you with a series of “missions” to complete. While some of
these are dependent on your location, others can be completed by anyone,
anywhere. In addition to traditional surveys, you may also be asked to
submit photos or even upload an audio or video recording. Many of the
missions have a decent amount of money associated with then, and when
you want to withdraw your earnings, you have a few options. As in other
apps you can pull the money into a PayPal account, but your can also add
it to your Amazon or iTunes account if you prefer.

earn money. If you try out the other apps mentioned here, this one might
look familiar. It is all but identical to MintCoins, but you might find
that the number of offers available is slightly more limited due to
your location. From installing apps to watching videos, earning money
really takes very little work and your rewards can be quickly
transferred to a PayPal account.

Rewardable has a US leaning to it, but not all of the tasks you are
invited to complete are reliant on being in the US. These are described
as “virtual tasks” and can be completed by anyone – so during the signup
process you could simply enter a pretend zip code to get started.
Rewards vary quite a lot, but are generally quite high, and your
earnings can be withdrawn to PayPal easily. Should you find yourself in
the States, there are in-store, location-specific tasks to carry out as

time, AppCasher will be right up your street. You can earn credits for
installing and launching apps, and these credits can then be converted
into gift cards that you can use to buy things from Amazon or iTunes, or
you can opt to have cash transferred to your PayPal account instead.

special code, you’ll earn extra credit for each person who signs up.
