A rewards app is helping people to pay their bills by giving them cashback – when they make CALLS.
Call Rewards was launched last month and already some users are pocketing an impressive £30 a month – almost covering their expenses.
Unlike other apps such as 0800 Wizard, Top Cashback and Quidco which save money, Call Rewards actually earns the user money.
All the user has to do is make phone calls as normal, and the app does the rest.
If a user makes a call that is eligible to earn money, the app securely and privately routes the call through the Call Rewards system. Call Rewards get paid by the mobile networks for handling the calls, and they then pass this money to the users.
One thrilled user said: ‘Call Rewards is the ideal tool to passively build a small income stream without any effort.’
Recent payout from the app show that a user on the EE network making 200 minutes of calls to landlines and mobiles could expect to receive £10 from the app each month.
The revenue earned depends on the type of number being dialled, the network and tariff the user is on, and the amount of calls they make. To achieve the highest pay-outs of £30 a month, Call Rewards users must be on the EE network and have a special add-on allowing them to call 08 numbers for free.
However, users on any network will earn some money through making weekday landline calls, and can boost their earnings significantly by telling their friends about the app. A user can get 10% of all the call revenue a friend earns during the next 6 months, simply by giving that friend their unique bonus code. The friend will in turn get a 10% boost on their own earnings for a 1 month period.
Money earned through the app is paid out monthly, providing a £1 threshold is met. Any unclaimed or unpaid money is rolled over to the following month. Payments are made via PayPal or bank transfer. Call Rewards is currently only available in the UK, to UK-registered mobile phones.
