Today I’d like to share an Android app that will make you money… literally. It’s called Google Opinion Rewards. Sorry, iOS fans and those reading in other countries, it’s only available on Android and only in the United States.
Once you install the app it will ask you a few simple questions to get to know you a little better. Then you just wait until a notification shows up inviting you to take a survey. Answer a few questions and you’ll get credit put into your Google Play Store Account. According to Google you’ll get a survey about once a week and get paid up to a dollar in credit.
I’ve only had the app installed a couple weeks and already I’ve racked up a couple bucks. Not too bad for a few surveys that took a matter of seconds to take.
So what kind of surveys have I received? My first was a one question survey. It just wanted to know if I had left my hometown in the last week to travel to a restaurant to eat. Another asked if I owned a fitness tracker and what fitness trackers I was familiar with.
If you’ve read my blog with any regularity you know that my wife and I got Fitbit Force’s for Christmas. I had done plenty of online research googling them using the Chrome browser. Is this why I got the survey? Not sure, but it does make me wonder.
The most recent survey was also on something I’ve been reading about a lot online this week. The Samsung Galaxy S5. The screenshots below are the actual survey and how much I got paid to take it.
Some might argue that this is just another way for Google to learn everything about you. I say if you use Google’s free services they already know more than you think. You might as well get a little something back. By the way, Google charges companies to conduct these surveys for them.
If you’re still an the fence about whether you want to download the app and participate in the surveys you can get more information here.
If you bank up some credits and also check the AppSales app you could end up scoring yourself some pretty cool paid apps for free. Best of all you’ll do it legally. No piracy or risk of malware involved.
Are you already using Google Opinion Rewards? Are you planning to download the app or is this not something you’re into? Leave a comment and let me know.
