AppTrailers is another way to earn money from your smartphone (both on iPhone & Android).
How does it work
On AppTrailers, you have to watch app adverts on your device and then earn points. That's it. It's honestly that simple. To get started, all you need to do is visit App Store or Marketplace and download their app. To start earning, you'll have to open up the device and tap on settings to enter your email address. This email is important if you want to be paid through PayPal later on.
When you access the advertising videos under ‘Apps’ you'll notice some have different points. The ones with a yellow/orange colour can only be watched once, but when you scroll down further there are videos for 2 or 5 points. You can watch these over and over again – just press ‘done’ in the top left corner and you’ll earn your points.This is possible because AppTrailers earn their money from these advertising videos.
How are you paid?
The points you earned are then converted into various gift cards (e.g. Xbox points, Google Play credit, Steam credit) or Paypal if you prefer. It is paid in dollars but don't worry, they convert it into GBP for no fee.
Here's a look at some of the conversion rates:
- 10 points – $0.01
- 250 points – $0.25
- 500 points – $0.50
- 1000 points – $1
Unlike other websites paying you via Paypal, you aren’t charged fees on the money that you earn, and it is in your account within 60 seconds. Your PayPal does have to be verified however so make sure it is before you start. If you ever have any problems, they resolve them very quickly, even quicker if you have a screenshot at hand.
As you earn more points you can also reach new levels, where benefits include earning more points!
How else can I earn?
It's also possible to earn by downloading the free apps, as well as writing feedback on them. This can be more hassle than it's worth however as it takes a while to confirm you've actually downloaded and played on the app. Under the “redeem” tab, there’s also a free daily scratch card where you could win points.
