Cashcamel Review: Another Surveys for Money App

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

CashCamel will pay you real cash to take surveys via your phone.  The app has more than 100,000+ downloads and a decent 4.4/5 rating on the Google Play Store.

As you probably know by now, there are a ton of survey apps out there, some bad and some good, and it can be hard to figure out which ones are truly worth your time.  That’s the main reason I wanted to create this site as I want to help you figure out what’s worth your time.

In today’s review, I dabble with CashCamel for a few and let you know my thoughts.  Is it legit?  Is it a scam?

As in all of my reviews, I’m 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.  Let’s begin!

How CashCamel Works

At first glance, CashCamel looks like the many survey apps on the market.  They claim they pay out 30% more than most survey apps and they use artificial intelligence to pre-qualify you for surveys.  I don’t know how true this is, but I do find it annoying to disqualify for the many survey invites I click on.  We shall see.

The app is operated by a company called CrowdNautics, which appears to be your typical market research company.  The company doesn’t have an official company website, but if you type in the name, it just takes you to the CashCamel website.

The company in itself seems to be legit, at least reading the reviews on both app stores, so I don’t think there’s a concern as to it being a scam.

Signing up for CashCamel

If you want to take surveys with CashCamel, you have to download the app, either via the Google Play Store or iTunes.  And, upon doing so, it will immediately take you to a screen, which will look something like this…

Unlike almost all apps that require you to sign up upon downloading it, this doesn’t seem to be the case in the beginning.  Instead, they ask that you fill out a quick welcome survey that will pay you $0.20.

During the “welcome survey,” you will verify your account as well as create one so that you can log back in.

This entire process takes about four minutes at most, and after you complete it, you can immediately start taking surveys.

As to who can sign up, you must be 18+, and it seems to be open to multiple countries, but they don’t specify which ones.  You must also have a PayPal account as this is how you will get rewarded.

The Surveys

The nice thing about CashCamel is that they focus on surveys only.  You won’t find videos, offers or even games.  It’s strictly open up a survey and answer the questions shown.

Now, like many survey apps, you won’t qualify for all of the surveys you take.  The company notes that they use A.I. to help with the disqualifications, but I didn’t see this to be the case.  I still disqualified for many I clicked on.  In fact, I saw no difference, but again your results will vary, of course.

What I did like about the site is that it’s presented simply on the dashboard.  You can see how long the survey takes, what the survey is about as well as what you’re going to get paid.  If any of the surveys are of interest, just click on it and answer the questions honestly.  And, don’t forget to pay attention as many researchers throw in “attention check” questions to make sure you’re paying attention.

How many surveys can I get?

I would expect around a few a day, but this will depend on your demographics.  On my first day, for example, I was able to take at least six to eight surveys.

How much do the surveys pay?

The downfall is that most surveys are less than $1, so I would say the average is $0.20 to $1.  However, you may see surveys that pay more than this.  They did say they pay 30% more than competitors, but I’m sorry, I just don’t see it.


As for rewards, it’s simple.  They only pay out via PayPal and you need at least $10 to cash out.  This is an okay minimum threshold, but I wouldn’t say it’s the lowest I have seen.

Once you hit $10 and request your cash out, it can take up to two days to receive your cash.

The Pros:

  • Offers a very simple to use dashboard
  • PayPal is a rewards option
  • Only need $10 to cash out, which isn’t too bad for the survey industry

The Cons:

  • Surveys may be limited
  • Most surveys pay less than $0.50
  • Support seems to be lacking
  • Multiple reports of people saying the survey doesn’t credit

Final Thoughts

7/10CashCamel seems to have potential.  I wouldn’t say it’s the best survey app out there, but it’s very easy to use and the surveys are short and sweet.  If you were to use it, I feel you could earn maybe $10 to $20 a month, maybe more?  I guess it would depend on how often you use it as well as your demographics.  Remember that your results will be much different than mine.

That’s going to wrap it up for now.
