Coming soon: Invite your friends with referral links

Great news for Android users! We're making it even easier to earn points for referring your friends. Soon, you'll be able to easily invite your friends by using a referral link. Here's a preview of how it'll work:

  1. Tap on "Invite Friends" from the side menu
  2. Share your link, using Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, or email. You can also copy the link by tapping on it.
  3. For each friend who installs Appdango for the first time using your link, you'll receive 50 points. Your friend will receive 100 points for using your link.
  4. Earn an extra 50 points when your friend takes an offer.
We will be replacing the old referral code system with referral links. If you want to earn points for inviting friends, make sure to give them your referral link, not your referral code.

Quick ways to earn points

Appdango has so many ways to earn points, it can get overwhelming for first-timers. Here's a breakdown of how to earn points on Appdango.


1. Download Apps

With a variety of apps to download, Appdango will never leave you bored. To get points for taking an offer, just make sure to follow the directions. Each offer may have different requirements to earn points. You should see the points within 24 hours, but if you don’t, make sure to contact customer service at support.appdango@appdango.com. Luckily, you don’t have to wait for your points balance to update before taking other offers.

Follow directions to earn points.


2. Take surveys

Surveys are a fun and easy way to earn points. When you answer a question, you can see how others responded. Same as with other offers, you should see points within 24 hours, but if you don’t, email support.appdango@appdango.com to help you out.

Check for new surveys daily.

3. Refer friends

Another great way to earn points is to invite your friends to join in on the fun. There are two easy ways to refer friends: send them your referral link, or give them your referral code. To send your referral link through WhatsApp or email, select “Share Appdango”.


Refer friends by sending your referral link (left), or giving your referral code (right).
If you’d prefer to give your referral code for your friend to enter after signing up, you can find it in the side menu.


Find your referral code in the side menu.
Either way, you’ll receive 200 points and your friend gets 100 points, after your friend installs Appdango, signs up via Facebook, and earns 50 points. To refer friends, you must have an Appdango account. If you have Appdango on multiple devices, the referral bonus will go to the first device you registered on.

4. Join in on the weekly contests

Appdango holds a Weekend Warrior contest every week. Each contest has different tasks and prizes, so make sure to check it out every week! Visit the Appdango Facebook page or Twitter so you don't miss out.

5 Mobile Apps Where You Can Earn Legit Rewards

Looking to buy some stuff or just need extra cash? There are apps that reward you for little things like checking in, performing simple tasks, trying out apps, or taking surveys. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Appdango – Try it here
 
Rewards: Amazon, Best Buy, Facebook, Fandango, Home Depot, iTunes, Nike, REI, Sephora, Tango Card, Target, and Walmart gift cards, with PayPal coming soon.

How to earn: Earn points for installing apps. Some apps may require more interaction than others. Just remember that you don't have to install all the apps that you see, but the more you try, the more points you'll earn.

Notes: Some things aren't too good to be true. Appdango has a best rewards guarantee for its users: if you find a higher payout on a qualifying offer with a competitor, Appdango will match it at 110%. Apps are updated every 24 hours, so there's always something new. There are weekly competitions through Facebook and Twitter where you get the chance to double or triple your points. iOS users, don't fret – visit appdango.com using your Safari browser to join in on the rewards. If you have any questions, there's a quick support team. Check it out at appdango.com.

 
2. Shopkick – Try it here
 
Rewards: A huge assortment of gift cards, as well as prizes like Beats headphones and even a cruise vacation. Gift cards include Target, Nike, GameStop, Old Navy, Starbucks, iTunes, and many more. Seriously, Shopkick has the biggest and best rewards catalog you can find.

How to earn: Walk through the front door of participating stores and scan the bar codes of certain products inside. You can also get a ton of points for referring friends to download the app. There are surprise points buried within the app daily, too.

Notes: The granddaddy of all rewards apps, Shopkick is easy to use, beautifully designed, and always fun! I’m obsessed with it. It’s also something that few other apps can claim to be: extremely lucrative.



3. Viggle – Try it here

Rewards: A rotating selection of gift cards. As of now, there are cards from McDonald’s, Spotify, Barnes & Noble, Sephora, Groupon, Redbox, Papa John’s, and many more.

How to earn: Check in to virtually any TV show that’s on right now. Tap the check-in button, let your phone listen to your TV, and Viggle will use an algorithm to recognize what you’re watching. Certain promoted programs will get you bonus points, and DirecTV users get bonus points. You can also play trivia games during certain shows to earn even more points, or by playing fantasy sports during live games.

Notes: Service can be a little spotty at times, particularly during major events like the Superbowl or the Oscars, and Viggle’s audio voodoo doesn’t always recognize every program on TV. You get three tries to check in via audio; if Viggle doesn’t recognize your program after that, it lets you type in the show’s title to check in. But it works 90% of the time, and if you have access to a TV all day long, you can rack up serious points pretty quickly.
 
4. AppTrailers – Try it here

Rewards: AppTrailers offers a few different types of rewards. The only cash option is PayPal and it’s the lowest amount, but you can also get paid in Amazon, Starbucks, Best Buy, and other gift cards. PayPal is the way the go because you can cash out with just 500 points ($0.50). Most of the gift cards are 5000 points ($5) or more.

How to earn: One great thing about AppTrailers is that you can get paid for doing something you already do. You probably already watch movie trailers on your phone. You didn’t get paid for watching those trailers, did you? Well, now you can with AppTrailers. I am a huge fan of getting paid for things I already do, so I really enjoy AppTrailers.

Notes: The biggest thing I look for with rewards apps is how easy the app is to use. AppTrailers is extremely easy to use, and everything works, including watching videos, referring your friends, and cashing out points.

5. iPoll – Try it here

Rewards: Cold, hard cash.

How to earn: Participate in surveys at certain stores and restaurants.

Notes: Probably the best of the survey apps, iPoll just recently received an attractive redesign. The only catch is that you have to be physically at a retail or dining location in order to take the survey. Sometimes, there are only a few surveys available, but those who live in major cities should have better luck. Most surveys offer around a $0.25 for your trouble, but some of the better ones will pay up to $5.
