FeaturePoints is an app I found out about that you can download for either iPhone or Android that lets you earn rewards for trying out apps. This seems like pretty much a win-win because most of us try out apps occasionally anyway, for no reward. Here is some more about how FeaturePoints works.
How to Use The App
Download the app to your mobile device and go through the list of free apps available. You'll notice that every app listed has points associated. If you download any of the apps listed to your mobile device and use them for 30 seconds to one minute, you'll get those points. And apparently they are always adding new apps so you likely won't run out of apps you can earn points from too often.
Currently FeaturePoints is open worldwide.
What to Redeem For
It looks like FeaturePoints has a lot of different rewards to choose from. I'm always happy to see Paypal as a redemption option on anything that pays in points because that automatically makes it a lot more like you're getting paid in cash, and FeaturePoints does have the Paypal option. Another thing you can do is trade in your points for apps you may want that cost money. It's a great way to get premium apps for free. Update – I have had this app installed and HAVE been paid. I requested $5 to Paypal and the money went almost instantly into my account.
Minimum Points to Redeem
If you are after a Paypal redemption, it looks like you need 6000 points to get $10. The amount you need to get a premium app varies, but from the looks of things you'll need a minimum of 594 points for the cheaper apps. However, most of the free apps that you can download and earn points for give you a generous amount of points, so it probably won't take you that long to reach the minimum for something you want if you use the app often. Note – this app will limit how many times you can redeem per day.
Have I Been Paid?
Yes. You can see my Paypal payment proof below where I requested $5.
FeaturePoints has a fairly generous referral program, too. If anyone signs up to use the app under your referral link or by putting in your referral code, you'll get 50 percent of the points they earn on the apps they download. Note that this does NOT take away from your friend's points — they will still get all the allotted points for any apps they download. It's just a bonus FeaturePoints gives to you for referring your friends.
You definitely will want to sign up under someone if you can, not only because it helps them but also because that's the only way you can start off with 50 points.
How to Download
If you are on Android, you can install the app through Google Play. If you're on Apple, you'll need to open the Safari browser on your device and go to the Feature Points website to begin the process of installing the app. Good luck, and please comment below if you'd like to share your experience with FeaturePoints. You can put in my referral code 8YTY4E to get your 50 instant points.
