    I know, there's a lot of scam about getting free Amazon and etc credit which I too distance myself from, but ever since I came up across the app below I've found it to be useful whilst using it when watching TV, travelling or what have you. You know, not doing anything.

    The app's Free Steam Gift Cards (available on Android and iOS) and the way this works is by tapping on the options they have to acquire points. My favourite methods are by using "Lucky Wheel", following strangers on Instagram (gives you between 2 to 6 points each) and a few times the Offers (this one doesn't always work).

    Amazon UK - £1 = 920 points / £2 = 1830 points / £5 = 4400 points / £10 = 8360 points
    Amazon US - $1 = 600 points / $2 = 1200 points / $5 = 2900 points / $10 = 5500 points
    Google Play Store - $10 = 5500 points / $15 = 8470 points / $25 = 13830 points / $50 = 27250 points
    Steam - $2 = 1100 points / $5 = 2700 / $10 = 5400 points / $20 = 10500 points
    iTunes - $10 = 5820 points / $25 = 2700 points / $10 = 5400 points / $20 = 10500 points
    Xbox - $10 = 5500 points
    Paypal - $50 = 30000 points

    I've only ever redeemed £1 Amazon gift cards so it didn't take too much time, plus, it was very quick by following anyone on the Instagram option.

    Note: This is just meant to fill in small gaps for small purchases at said companies/retailers not for "get rich quick" schemes.

    Reading the reviews it sounds like people aren't being paid for their efforts. Not to mention that this kind of thing tends to not be worth the time doing it.

    Those kinds of apps are ALWAYS fake. They make 50 times the money you get for your hard work. Totally not worth it.

    Only survey app I found that works is the official Google Rewards Survey app which gives you playstore credit but all others are scams. To put it simply, the only free cheese is in the mousetrap.

    erewards and mysurvey are good websites to gain some spending money if you're just looking for $20 for ebay every month or so, but it takes forever to accumulate anything worth spending

    The negative reviews are from unhappy users but I on the other hand am satisfied. Got the points, checked out and received my Amazon credits.

    People need to understand not to condone in survey websites or apps that promise free money.
    The sooner people will learn to do that, the sooner the problem will dissipate.

    Anyway, if you feel like wanting to being a mule then go ahead.
    I'm happy for you that you got 1 quid for free whilst, if you had a normal paying job, you'd prolly got a weeks salary already.

    It's not even a survey, it's just tapping and that's it. Besides, this isn't a replacement for a job, like I've already stated.

    And btw, just because I brought this up it means I don't have a "normal" job? Shallow you are.
