Peekage is an app that learns what you like and then leads you to the offers you may enjoy. According to the app, if you play every day and collect coins, you can then spend your coins on the offers that are of interest to you. This can include food, cosmetics and drinks, to name a few.
If you’re a fan of receiving free products in the mail and you don’t mind putting forth a pinch of effort, then this app may be for you. However, like the so many apps out there, it isn’t always worth your time.
In today’s review, let’s take a look at the Peekage app and see what they have to offer.
Is it worth your time? How much can you make? Is it legit or yet another scam?
I will answer all of these questions honestly. As always, I only try to promote what I feel is worth your time. Let’s begin!
Earning Money with Peekage
When you first join, you will immediately be taken to your “offers” page, which will look something like this:
Here, you can find a variety of offers you may be interested in. For example, if you had a cat, you may be interested in that “lickable cat treats” option.
If you were to click on it, it notes that you will need 300 coins to receive it. If you want the product and you have 300 coins, then you could have these samples sent directly to your house.
At any given time, there seems to be 10-20 products you can try, ranging from cat treats to facial products. In some cases, you can even buy coupons with your coins.
How Can You Earn Coins?
To earn coins, you will have to complete missions, which you can find on the “missions” tab.
Here you can find a variety of surveys, most of which can pay about 100 to 200 coins per mission.
In the beginning, when you first download the app, they will mainly be demographic questions, but between the sign-up bonus and filling it out, you can easily earn 1,500+ coins, sometimes more. Once you finish the demographic questions, you will then have to wait for missions to pop up.
If you want to earn any coins, you will always find them here.
Unfortunately, the app, at least for now, doesn’t pay with gift cards or PayPal. Instead, you will have to choose from offers, which, again, can range from a simple 30% off coupon to some off-the-wall store to a free cat treat.
If you love products or even coupons, then these rewards can make sense. However, if you don’t like the idea of coupons or products, then this may not make much sense.
I don’t know if they will ever add PayPal or gift cards, but for now, they don’t. If they ever do, I will be sure to change that.
If this is something that you’re interested in, you will have to continue using your Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, then unfortunately, you will not be able to join.
Once you connect your account, you will have to give them your name, a few personal pieces of information as well as confirm your phone number. When you do this, you can immediately start taking part in missions, as noted above.
Since most of your rewards involve shipping, you will have to reside in the United States with a mailing address to qualify.

Peekage is a legitimate app, but I don’t think I’m going to use it frequently because it doesn’t pay out in gift cards or PayPal cash. While there’s nothing wrong in free samples/products, I just didn’t see anything of interest to me.
In the end, if you love freebies and don’t care that there are no gift cards or cash, then give it a try. There seems to be a decent number of products to choose from and the coins aren’t all that hard to earn. You can always download it, and worst case, if you don’t see something of interest, you can always delete it.
That’s going to do it for now.
