search cancel – Earn Money For Checking In

WeReward.comWe Reward is the latest app in the ever-lengthening queue of check in services that aim to conquer the imagination of internauts. In this particular case, things are kept very concise, and the app is true to its moniker in the sense that everything revolves around money.


The company champions something that goes by the name of sponsored check ins. As you can guess, these are a paid development of the (by now) standardized check ins as featured in Foursquare, Gowalla, Brightkite and their innumerable competitors.

I ma sure you can realize how these sponsored check ins are instrumented, but just to make everything stand completely clear: they let people earn money by visiting local businesses and venues and spending money there. That is, people get points for checking in at participating venues, and each point amounts to a penny each. When you have 1000 points you can proceed to redeem them for a cash reward that will be paid through PayPal.

You can download the app for free on the site, and if you are a business owner you can sign up for the We Reward program quite easily. Businesses have full control over how much they are going to spend, and there are just no minimum amounts as far as the spending or the length of commitment goes. In Their Own Words

“Earn WeReward points by completing tasks and checkins at your favorite businesses with your iPhone. Each point is worth a penny, earn 1,000 points and cashout to PayPal.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

Not everybody is keen on Foursquare, Gowalla and other location based services. Giving them a tangible reward might be the turning point.
