The Perk TV app is one of the most lucrative smartphone apps that pay to come around in a while. This is one of those that pays you to watch videos and while the amount you earn per video isn't much, you can run the app 24/7 so you are earning around the clock. And the best part — you can run the app on multiple devices, 24/7, to really maximize your earnings.
More About Perk
Perk TV is only one small part of a much bigger mobile rewards program called Perk. When you visit the Perk website, you'll see that in addition to Perk TV, they also have the Perk browser, the Perk shopping app, and the Perk search app. All of these allow you to earn rewards with your phone. Additionally, you can use Perk on the web in the same way you might use Swagbucks and other similar sites to earn rewards online.
Today's review is going to focus on Perk TV, but you could most definitely increase the rewards you earn by using all of the apps and the Perk website.
How Much You Can Earn With Perk TV
As mentioned above, you can run Perk TV on various mobile devices and earn points that you can redeem for different gift cards. Perk TV will work on most iOS or Android devices. The amount of points you earn per video is not much — in the US and Canada, it's about 1-2 points per video. Unfortunately if you are in other countries, the amount of points per video is way less than that so using Perk TV might not be as lucrative for you.
What makes Perk TV lucrative for people in the US and Canada in spite of the low point amount per video is that you can leave it running all day long on auto-pilot on your device, or devices. For most people, this means about $1 or $2 per day for doing nothing. And you're allowed to install Perk TV on up to five devices, so when you do the math, this adds up! If you left Perk TV running all day long on five devices, that could be around $5 per day.
I realize that doing that may not be practical for some, but this is how many folks are earning with Perk. I've even read where some people are going and buying older, somewhat out of date iOS and Android phones and tablets just so they can run Perk TV on them and earn more money.
What You Can Get With Your Perk Points
Perk has a huge gift card store, and there are options there to redeem for both Amazon and Paypal cash. But you will get the best deal redeeming for Amazon (or other store) codes. You can get $5 to Amazon for 5000 Perk points, but it takes 15000 Perk points to redeem for $10 to Paypal.
Other Things to Be Mindful Of
Even though this *sounds* awesome, you should know that it's not always going to go smoothly. Sometimes the app crashes, sometimes it will need updates, there may be occasional bugs and glitches, etc. So you'll have to check your devices periodically throughout the day to make sure that Perk TV is in fact running.
Also, you cannot expect Perk TV to give you your points if you fast forward through the videos or use an ad blocker to block the ads that appear while it's running. I've been reading where some people complained about not getting their points, and in many cases it's due to stuff like this.
