When Google initial released their mobile payment system, Google Wallet, $10 was credited to one’s account upon activation of the application. This decision was made in hopes of increasing the adoption rate of a pleasant feature now found in many Android devices. If you missed out on this opportunity, fear not! There is one more way to get more free money courtesy of Google.
It’s no secret that Google strives to learn everything about you in order to provide you with key information to be used in certain places such as Google Now. In order to learn more about its customers in general, major corporations issue surveys. Google is aiming to do the same thing with their Opinion Rewards app. Rewards is pretty straightforward and is the easiest app I’ve ever used. Once the app is installed and downloaded, the process is as follows:
- Open app
- Sign in
- Answer questions
If you’d like to give your eyes a reading break, you can watch me do a quick review off the app.
That really is the synopsis of the app. Periodically the Rewards icon will appear in your notification drawer, prompting you to take as survey. The surveys are usually 1 – 5 questions long and take no more than 2 minutes total to complete. After finishing the survey, a counter will appear to show how much money you earned for answering the questions. This money directly links to your Google Wallet account used in the Play Store and can be used to purchase apps, e-books, music or movies.
If you want to complain about receiving less than 50 cents for your time then please, by all means, go ahead and use your own money to your heart’s content. Rewards is a simple way for Google to learn about demographics in exchange for giving users a few dollars for their time.
