Hello thrifty friends!

There's a new app that has just arrived on our shores (originally a German company) called Streetspotr. Essentially, you are notified when small tasks are available in your area and you can then choose to complete the task with your smartphone and get paid soon after. Mind you, it is real money paid directly into your Paypayl account (no coupons, hooray!)

The tasks are super simple, at the moment the tasks being promoted require people to photograph selected restaurant menus, all over the UK. They are paying £2.9 per restaurant, and it generally only takes a couple of minutes max to complete the job.

Naturally, there are more tasks in urban areas, but soon enough there's sure to be tasks almost everywhere. http://streetspotr.com/en/user

Thanks for this!!

Ironically I actually posted about this info over on the green site as I thought it was a very good post and it has been removed as spam which is a shame

I have given you some 'applause'!!

Glad you found it helpful and thanks for your applause :D

Weird, that it was thought to be spam. Clearly a person here!

Re: Streetspotr, free smartphone app that pays you for doing simple, fun tasks

Hi there,

I've attached some screenshots of the Streetspotr app from my i-phone (its also available at GooglePlay too) to show exactly how it works.

-Open the app to see where jobs are available near you.

-If you are within a 2km range of the job location, you can accept the job.

-The jobs at the moment involve going to selected restaurants and photographing the menu. Easy as pie! And who doesn't like pie!

-Each restaurant pays £2.9 each, so you can quickly accumulate a decent amount of cash for very little work! It takes me tops 3minutes to take the photographs and then submit to Streetspotr. I've been so efficient that I have actually finished all the jobs nearby to me! But there are hundreds of jobs waiting to be snapped up.

Goodluck everyone. Let me know how you go!

Thanks for posting about this. The link above for me didn't work, so I tried http://streetspotr.com/en instead.

I think I'll sign up for this. Those of you who have signed up, how often do you get them?

Re: Streetspotr, free smartphone app that pays you for doing simple, fun tasks

Hi there @alundra,

Sorry my link didn't work, but glad you found the site all the same!

From what I can tell, Streetspotr has only been in the UK for a week or so... so I'm new also! My cousin in Germany put me onto Streetspotr, apparently it's huge there and she said she gets offered jobs every second day and averages about 70euro per month. Not bad at all!

I imagine Streetspotr will soon get the following that it has in Germany and we'll be offered just as many jobs.

Cheers!

I hope it gets a following here!

I have signed up and the first task is take a picture of my face. Oh no. :( I don't want to do that!! Maybe I'll take a picture of half of my face lol.

I have done the test task and all I can see are takeaway menu checks which are paying £2.90.

The EXACT same take away check for the same location on Roamler is paying £4

Seems they are taking quite a bit cut from the client

I've used Roamler too and at the end of the day it works out to be a very similar pay-out as Roamler charge you PayPal fees, Streetspotr doesn't :)

I've also done the test task and see takeaway menu things, but they're a little too far for me at the moment. I think I'll have better luck when I go back to school next week.

The issue being they want you to take (a lot of) close up photos of baked goods in tiny shops or even just counters, where they are located by the tills. I can see no way of doing these tasks without getting spotted, and there's no mention of the shop knowing you are coming. They do say if you have any problems to email them, I think they are testing the waters to see if the shops kick off! I'd be really interested to hear someone's experience of these, as I don't have the bottle :)

Re: Streetspotr, free smartphone app that pays you for doing simple, fun tasks

photos at the till...ouch

had to do that before when doing bar tasks for Field Agent that involve taking photos of the optics behind the bar

Also had to do a task in jessops for them which have the smallest of shops.

the balls to the wall approach is all you can do

Re: Streetspotr, free smartphone app that pays you for doing simple, fun tasks

I've just had a lovely message (via Facebook) from Georgia at Streetspotr letting us know that in and around London there is currently a 'pretzel check', which is paying a whopping £13 per store visit!

Go go go!

Re: Streetspotr, free smartphone app that pays you for doing simple, fun tasks

A StreetSpotr Rep has just signed up to The Money Shed.

It should be noted that we are the FIRST 3rd party that they have made contact with.

We should be able to feed back to the rep about the application and how it works for us before their big launch in a few months
