Did you know that you can download an app that will send you surveys, and pay you just for answering a few short questions? It’s called Google Opinion Rewards, and it’s an easy way to earn some money in the form of Google Play credit. You can use the Google Play credit you earn to buy apps, music, movies, eBooks, and more. Almost everything that is offered in the Google Play store can be bought with what you earn from the Google Opinion Rewards app.
Getting Started with Google Opinion Rewards
When the app was first launched, it was only available to android users. However, iPhone users can now earn Google Play credit as well! Android users can download the app here, whereas iPhone users can download it here.
Install the app on your phone, open the app, and then swipe past the introduction screens. You’ll then be asked to enter in some personal information, such as your name, age range, gender, and languages you understand. Make sure to answer these questions honestly, as this information is used to send you targeted surveys.
After completing the sign up, you’re taken to the main page of the app. If you look at the top, you have a new survey available already! Don’t get too excited though because it’s just an example survey. Tap “ANSWER SURVEY” and answer the five questions that are asked. Be sure to read each question thoroughly, as some of the questions are designed to see if you have taken the time to read the entire question. Although this is not a paid survey, it’s a necessary step to see how the surveys work.
The next step is to just wait. When a new survey is available for you to answer, a little trophy icon will appear in your notification bar.
What you can expect to earn
The majority of the surveys I have received pay between 10 cents and 50 cents each. That’s not bad considering that it usually only takes me at most 10 seconds to answer the surveys. The most I have earned from a single survey was $1.00. Usually the more personal the questions of the survey are, the more the survey pays. With the surveys that paid me a dollar, they asked questions about what I did for work or questions about my family.
The number of surveys you can expect to receive varies from person to person. I personally get about one or two surveys a day, mostly asking about stores I have visited. However, I have read that some people get one survey a week or even one a month. Also, not all of the surveys you’ll receive are paid surveys, however those non-paying surveys are far and few between.
Overall, I personally earn about $65 per year in Google Play credit using the Google Opinion Rewards App.
Tips for using the Google Opinion Rewards App to earn more Google Play credit
- Make sure your location settings are on. Most of the survey questions pertain to stores or places that you’ve visited. Those surveys will ask you to check off a store you’ve visited, and may ask you to rate the store, ask for more information like if you made a purchase and how you paid, or ask you to write a public review. These location-based surveys are the majority of the surveys I receive, and they pay pretty well.
- Answer the surveys honestly! Don’t lie what-so-ever. Google will occasionally send fake survey questions to see if you are paying attention and not trying to lie your way into earning more money. The first time you’re caught by one of these fake surveys, you’ll receive a warning. The second time you’re caught, you might not be able to take any more surveys.
- Answer the surveys quickly! Most surveys expired in 24 hours after they are offered to you.
