Ever wanted to make money by using your smartphone? Well, FeaturePoints may be up your alley. FeaturePoints is an app that pays you to download and test out other free apps.
The question remains, is FeaturePoints a scam? Does Feature Points work? Let’s take a look at the facts.
- Android and iOS Compatible
- Get Paid to Test Apps
- Decent Referral Program
- Redeem Points for Rewards
- Redeem Points for Paid Apps
- Mobile Device Can Get Bogged Down From Memory Usage
- Claiming Rewards Requires a Lot of Points
- Apps sometimes disappear from FP system during testing (high point apps)
- May have fewer apps to test in some areas
FeaturePoints will run on any device running iOS 7 or later or Android 4.0 or later. They pay you in points and each app is worth a different amount of points based on how much the app developer wanted to promote their product. The points you get can be redeemed for PayPal cash or Gift Cards but some rewards are country specific.
They pay you in points and each app is worth a different amount of points based on how much the app developer wanted to promote their product. The points you get can be redeemed for PayPal cash, Gift Cards, or game points but some rewards are country specific.
Points can also be redeemed for paid apps but they require an active iTunes account, so Android users are out of luck (just redeem for PayPal if able and pay for apps yourself).
FeaturePoints also implements a pretty decent referral program. When you refer a friend, your friend gets 50 free points and you get 50% of any points they earn through the app. This can add up quickly if you can get a lot of people to try out FeaturePoints’s promoted apps.
One negative impact that FeaturePoints has on your device is that it can get bogged down from memory usage. You have to be careful about downloading too many apps and having them run at the same time. Delete apps you don’t use often and close any apps you’re not using currently.
The rewards offered by FeaturePoints require quite a few points in order for redemption. For instance, $3 to PayPal requires 1,800 points. Basically, for any reward with a monetary value, you need to redeem 600 points for every dollar.
In some countries, you may find that FeaturePoints doesn’t have that many apps. That is due to the lack of apps in the region that are being promoted by developers. FeaturePoints will only provide the apps they are paid to.
WHO IT IS FOR
FeaturePoints is for anyone looking to make a few bucks every week with minimal work. If that’s not enough, then there is always the referral program.
Those capable of referring many app testers will have the potential to earn hundreds or even thousands a month but it will be a constant effort to keep those referrals going or bring new referrals in.
FeaturePoints allows anyone 13 years or older to join and test apps, so young teenagers may find this app can provide a steady “allowance”. It definitely beats mowing lawns.
The FeaturePoints website has a short video explaining how the app works. It’s quick and to the point. You don’t really need in-depth training for this app but if you’re looking for it, you won’t find it through the app or its website.
One cool thing about FeaturePoints is that they have premade videos that you can promote that will automatically have your referral code displayed in them. There’s a generic FP video, one based on Pokemon Go, one for Fifa, and more.
There are even social share buttons right inside of the app that contain premade messages with your referral link attached. You can change the messages, of course, but you don’t have to worry about trying to figure out your referral code ahead of time.
The FeaturePoints app has several support features inside.
First, there are the email settings. You want to put your preferred email here so that you are eligible to redeem points for cash and rewards.
Then, there is the support button. This leads you to your email provider so that you can email your concerns to the support system.
If you don’t want to email support and just have a general question, then the FAQ is probably for you. The FAQ answers a lot of questions and is pretty thorough.
After that, there’s your points history. This section tells you about all of the transactions you’ve made regarding your points. It keeps track of the apps you tried, the offers you’ve completed, the surveys you’ve taken, and even points you earn from friends.
Finally, there are the terms and privacy statements. These are legally required documents for any app that deals with money or memberships. Feel free to read them if you like but there’s nothing truly interesting in there.
FeaturePoints is free to use. The apps you test are free as well, but some have premium options or have in-app purchases.
As long as you’re careful about those in-app purchases, you shouldn’t be paying a dime.
FeaturePoints as a make money app is legitimate. They pay out when you earn enough points and request a reward.
The only problem I see with FeaturePoints is that the points earned are pretty low for the reward costs but I understand the points are set by the app developers and what they are willing to pay for testers.
You might even find some apps you like through FeaturePoints. I’ve found a few games that I really enjoy and I play them regularly in my downtime.
This is why I gave FeaturePoints a 7 out of 10. It’s an app with low payout…but it works and that’s the important part. Is FeaturePoints a scam? No, it is not.
WHAT I RECOMMEND
One thing that can help is an understanding of affiliate marketing, as it’s essentially the same concept. To really get a grip on what affiliate marketing is all about, I recommend joining a community that specializes in affiliate marketing.
The community that I joined was Wealthy Affiliate University. Through WA, you learn all sorts of ways to build content and promote products you enjoy. They show you how to drive paying traffic (or in your case, working traffic) in many fashions.
