I've been hearing some buzz about an app called Tapbooty that you can download to your Apple or Android device and earn money and rewards, so I downloaded it myself today to check it out and see what the deal is, and of course share what I discover with you.
How do you use the app to earn?
This is one of those apps that pays you for trying out other apps and playing games, kind of like Feature Points. Although so far I think I prefer the Tapbooty interface to the Feature Points one. Basically when you're digging around inside the app, you'll see a list of things you can do to earn points and how many points each thing earns you. Most of the options are to download and try out apps, but it looks like they've recently added a way to watch videos and earn points. You can also earn for referring friends, but I'll get more into that part of it below.
How do you get started with Tapbooty?
Once you have the app downloaded, you'll notice that you are required to connect it to your Facebook account. So apparently if you don't have a Facebook account, you can't really use this app. If you don't have a Facebook and it's primarily because you have no interest in socializing online, you could always make a dummy one just for stuff like this and not add a picture or friend anyone.
What can you redeem for?
I am really, really liking the redemption options here, and the fact that they all say “receive reward immediately.” You can't beat that! I love these apps that send out your redemptions right away. The options might change, but right now it looks like you can request Amazon gift cards, Paypal, Target card, Tango card, Best Buy card, Walmart card, Starbucks card, and Facebook gift card. These are all digital cards/codes that will be sent to you probably via email once you redeem.
How much does it take to redeem?
With Tapbooty, $1 is equal to 1,000 prize points. You'll notice when you're on the app that it shows you how many booty coins you have and how many prize points you have. You basically turn your booty coins into prize points by playing and winning on their games (winning the games is not a guarantee). One booty coin is the same as one prize point.
Some of the rewards (like Paypal cash) have redemption options as low as 1,000 prize points, but some require 5,000 prize points ($5).
How does Tapbooty's referral program work?
The Tapbooty referral program has gotten a lot of praise online because unlike other referral programs, there's no cap. Tapbooty will give you 100 points for every person you refer plus 10 percent of their coin earnings for life. Note that this is not money/points that will be deducted from the balances of the people you refer. Instead, it's just a bonus Tapbooty gives to you. So there is no disadvantage to your friends signing up under you rather than just signing up directly.
The feedback on Tapbooty is pretty good overall. Most people love how fast they can cash out here. I did read a few reports online of the app crashing and not working properly, but so far I haven't had any issues with it. It seems to load a bit faster than Feature Points for me.
Want to sign up?
