GReward App: Can You Earn Money? (review)

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

The GReward app has more than 1,000,000 downloads on the Google Play Store with a decent 4.3/5 rating.

They claim that you can earn money, gift cards or mobile recharges simply by playing games, watching videos and/or completing offers.  There are a TON of these apps on the market, many of which are not worth your time.  Is this the case with GReward?  It’s more than likely, but this review will explain why.

In today’s app review, let’s talk about GReward in how it works, what you can make as well as what other people think of it.  As in all of my reviews, I’m always 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time.

Earning Money with the GReward App

To earn money with GReward, you can do so in a few ways, mainly paid offers and watching videos.

Let me explain below.

#1 Paid Offers

The main way to earn money through the GReward app is in the paid offer section.  And, if you have ever taken part in something like this, then you probably already know how it works.  They work with a third party, known as offerwalls, that provides them with the offers and then shares the profits with you whenever you complete them.

Whenever you log in, you can see a list of offers as well as what each offer pays.  You will just need to click on the offerwall that’s of any interest to you.  And, when you do, just follow the prompts to see what’s expected of you to earn the said points.

At any given time, you can see about 10 to 20 offers at any time, most of which pay a few dollars at most.  Expect about five offerwalls and mostly offers as well as games you can play.

#2 Watching Videos

Aside from offers, you can also watch videos, which rarely pay much.

Most of these videos last about 30 seconds and pay about 100 coins.  I will talk about how much coins are worth later on here.

Simply put, just click on the videos tab, watch the video in its entirety, and then, you will see your balance credited.

Getting Paid

Every time you get paid, you will earn coins, which, doing the math, isn’t as easy as one point equals a cent.  Instead, every 10,000 coins will equal about $1 or so.  I only say this because the coin value does slightly go up as you wait to cash out.

As you can see, 48,200 points are worth about $50, whereas 10,000 coins are about $1 in value.

To cash out, you will need at least 3,000 coins, a $0.20 value, to make a PayPal withdrawal.  This is quite low in comparison to other apps that work like it and you will find it shouldn’t take you long to get here.

Aside from PayPal, you can also convert your points into gift card credits as well, which are known as Tango gift cards.  To do this, you will need at least 49,000 coins, which is $5 in Tango credits.  This Tango card can be used for almost any major restaurant and retailer.

What Can You Make?

With most of these apps, you won’t be able to make much.  The same can be said about this one.

When I played around with the app, I would say you could earn maybe 10,000 coins a day and that’s if you’re lucky. It’s definitely not an app that will make you rich, but again, that can be said about most of these apps.

Videos pay about 100 coins, which means you need to watch 100 videos to earn 10,000 coins.  That’s 3,000 seconds in videos or about one hour.  Is one hour worth $1 to you?  Probably not.

The Pros:

  • open worldwide
  • low threshold
  • PayPal and good rewards

The Cons:

  • not a lot of unique offers
  • low paying

Final Thoughts

2/10In the end, the app is legitimate, but you won’t make much.  When I poked around, I saw nothing unique, and it was mainly third-party offerwalls that I could find on other sites.  Simply put, there’s nothing special here.

While you will never make a ton of money with apps, even the best of them, don’t expect much here.  I’m talking $1 a day, maybe less or a pinch more.  Who knows?

That’s going to do it for now.
