Please note: The $15 Visa gift card offer has expired. However, you can still signup for Mobilexpressions to earn extra cash.
Don’t worry – I’m not about to make you fill out an annoying survey. Just an easy way to make a quick $15…
Mobile Xpressions has relaunched their incentive program and if you download their free mobile app today, they will send you a $15 virtual Visa prepaid card. Easy enough!
MobileXpression is a research company that studies internet trends and reports to their clients about the popularity of different mobile phone websites. They are currently looking for a few thousand of us cell phone users to share some of the websites we are browsing on our mobile devices. All of the sharing is done with a special software that is installed on your phone and it doesn’t require any real work from you. You can also uninstall the software at any time if you decide you no longer want to participate.
How it works…
1. Sign up at MobileXpressions here – You’ll need to share a little bit of information about your demographic which is similar to signing up as a Nielsen household. You’ll also need to tell them what kind of cell phone you have, because their software is only compatible with certain types of phones.
2. Download their software – It seems to be pretty easy and it runs in the background of your phone just like any other cell phone app. The site says it will have no affect on your mobile phone performance.
3. Send your data – This step doesn’t really require any work from you as the software automatically send the relevant data to MobileXpression. They don’t monitor your phone calls or personal information but they do check out the web pages you view, the links you access, and the usage times for certain device activities (e.g., text messaging, call lengths, and web browsing).
4. Collect your rewards – MobileXpressions will you a $15 Visa gift card just for signing up and downloading the software. They also reward members with weekly contests and will have a drawing for $100,000 jackpot at the end of the year.
Unfortunately, my iPhone wasn’t one of the phones that is currently compatible, however it works just fine on my friend’s BlackBerry. There are dozens of other compatible phones as well, so head on over to see if your phone is on the list. The company also encourages those of us with ineligible phone to sign up because they are working on developing new software and will notify us when we can participate.
