Making money with 20 Cogs is a great way of boosting the weight of your wallet. It's a simple way to make some extra side money by completing their offers which can be anything from surveys to taking and reviewing free trials.
How does it work?
When you accept and complete an offer (“cog”) it'll show as pending and it'll turn amber. When the advertiser has verified your completion the cog will then green but this can take up to 45 days so don't threat if it doesn't happen straight away.
How do you get paid?
There are 20 offers (“cogs”) which you have to complete before being able to cash out but it's definitely worth the wait. Once you've completed all 20, you will see a claim button where you can request payment via BACS or PayPal.
Payment arrives swiftly in a few days.
Here's why joining 20 Cogs is worth it: they have an extremely generous referral scheme. For every friend or family member you successfully refer, you will earn 5% of their earnings forever! If that wasn't a good enough incentive, when your referrals complete 20 Cogs then you'll get a £20 bonus!
Some of the offers can look a bit “spammy” so it's worth using (or if you don't already have one; making one) an email address that you use solely for your side hustles or getting freebies. Another tip is to screenshot confirmation that you've completed offers in case, for whatever reason, it isn't tracked properly. If not, the team are helpful so submitting a query will probably resolve it too.
The great debate
If you google “20 Cogs reviews,” your search will present you with loads of websites debating whether 20 Cogs is a scam or not, including people giving it a trial themselves. After reading this post what's your view? If you're still a bit hesitant then it's worth taking a look at people's proof of payments such as this one from Emma Drew. (As you can see, the referral scheme is working very well).
