Hey all this is just a quick post sharing an app I've been using for a long time now.
It's called Google Opinion Rewards.
It allows Google to use your location data to provide you with surveys via push notifications.
These surveys can be used for multiple things including:
- ratings for stores and restaurants you recently visited
- market data research
- reviews on Google maps
The first is the most common one I get. I buy a lot of coffee when I'm out and about it. It seems like almost every day I get a quick survey asking me how my coffee shop experience was.
I like it because I get about $0.30, so over 10% rebate on the price. In addition it gives me a way to provide feedback, letting people know if service was great or horrible.
The second is more rare except when I first downloaded the app so I'll skip to the third type.
If I stay at a hotel or hostel I'll often get a survey which not only asks for a star rating but in addition gives me the opportunity to leave a review.
These surveys generally pay $1 and the big difference is your name (and google account photo) will show up beside that review on Google maps.
I can't remember the last time I actually paid for something on Android because I get so many surveys now. Its not juat apps either you can also use the credit for in app purchases and monthly app subscriptions.
As you can see I'm sitting at over $20 credit now, so I thought I'd share the app for anyone else who might be interested.
