If you happen to be an iPhone owner, you’ll be happy to know that there are tons of ways you can earn money with it — and the Field Agent app may be one of the most profitable I’ve come across so far. I do have the app on my phone, but unfortunately I haven’t gotten a chance to try it out yet. I was trying to wait to review it until I had a chance to try it, but as busy as things have been for me lately there is no telling when that will be! So I hated to hold those of you who don’t know about it yet back from giving it a try for yourself.
How does the Field Agent app work?
Get on your iPhone and go to your App Store. Do a quick search for “Field Agent,” and download the app. It’s completely free. Once the app is installed, you can set it to check for jobs in your local area. These jobs vary greatly, but for the most part they involve doing things inside stores. Like for example, a job recently showed up on my phone through the Field Agent app asking me to take a picture of a certain type of turkey inside the deli display case at my local grocery store. Another one I saw was to take a picture of how many notches were on the shelf just under the monitor hanging from a Wal-Mart end cap display in the Pharmacy section. I didn’t do either of these, but if I had, I could have simply accepted the job, took the required pictures, and uploaded them to Field Agent. After my submissions were approved, I would have been paid for the jobs.
How much does Field Agent pay?
Pay varies from job to job, but from what I’ve seen most jobs pay anywhere from a few dollars up to as much as twelve dollars. The money you earn should show up in your Field Agent account within 48 hours after you’ve completed a job. You can then request that the money be sent to your Paypal or Dwolla accounts. Currently these are the only two methods of payment available.
What is an Agent Score?
You start off with a “score” of 85/100. As you do more and more jobs accurately, your score goes up. It could also go down if you don’t follow directions or reserve jobs without executing them. The higher your score, the better the chances are that you’ll get access to the higher-paying stuff. After you reserve a job, you have 120 minutes to complete it, so don’t reserve anything unless you know you can be at the specified location within that time period. According to the website, not all jobs require that you visit a store and that in fact some can be done from home, but I haven’t seen any on my list yet that don’t require being at a store.
Is Field Agent open outside the US?
Yes. Field Agent is open to the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
What are people saying?
People are really liking Field Agent! Some people are actually making a decent amount of extra cash with the Field Agent app by just going about their day to day business when they’re running errands. From what I’ve read, they pay when the money is requested. If you have an iPhone and need some extra cash, I highly suggest checking this out! I can’t wait to try it myself.
You do have to have an iPhone to use Field Agent, but another good app to download that will work with most smart phones is Checkpoints. You can’t earn cash with that one, but you can earn points that you can redeem for lots of gift cards and other cool merchandise.
