According to a recent study by the USC Annenberg, the average American spends 24 hours a week online. That’s one entire day (and night) just browsing through social media feeds, watching silly cat or dog videos, “window” shopping online, answering dumb surveys that determine what your superhero name is (based on the color of your underwear and last meal), and reposting memes.
This is why online rewards sites like iRazoo are suddenly so prevalent. There are so many people spending so much time online - and with so many retail partners needing valuable feedback (and willing to pay for it) from them! People will always need extra cash, and businesses will always need people to drive traffic to their sites. It looks to be a win-win situation for all parties involved - but is it really a legit way to earn money, or is it an outright scam?
First things first - what is it?
Claiming to be “the world’s most popular rewards program”, iRazoo aims to compensate members with cash and free gift cards for doing what they would normally do online for free anyway. Their website has a menu for ways to earn points: by downloading apps, watching videos, completing offers, answering paid surveys, and even playing games. It looks to be available to members worldwide.
How long has it been around?
iRazoo has been around for over a decade now. It’s a small-task website that allows members to choose the kind of online activities they want to do to earn points, which they can then redeem for gift cards from partner retailers like iTunes, Walmart, or Amazon . Points are also convertible to cash via PayPal (which is always good!).
iRazoo also has an Android-based app (linked below the article) for mobile users.
Does it pay well?
According to member feedback, watching a full video or playing a game will earn you a couple of points each. If you keep at it for a full week, you will likely earn just a couple of dollars for your effort. If you want to convert your earnings to cash via PayPal, you will need to earn at least $25 before you can redeem your payment.
One of iRazoo’s home page testimonies proudly proclaims having earned $10 a week even after she’d “cherry picked the best tasks”. The member called it “a great way to make some side money”. Honestly, ten dollars a week is loose change for most of us, and a passive income at best. Then again, one user’s experience isn’t a yardstick for all members.
Is registration free?
Absolutely. You won’t need to pay for anything to join iRazoo. In fact, their website offers 100 points right off the bat if you enter your email address.
How do I start earning extra income from iRazoo?
Just by joining iRazoo, you right away get compensated in the form of 500 points for using a referral code. When friends you refer sign up, you also get between a hundred to 500 points once they’ve reached 1000 points in their account (a great way for the site to ensure that you keep on your friends about keeping their accounts active!)
You can choose from a menu of activities you like doing, such as watching videos, playing games, searching for things online, and answering surveys. You can redeem a free $5 gift card or $5 cash from iRazoo once you’ve racked up 3000 points (their minimum payout) in your account.
What is the best way to earn via iRazoo?
For me, when it comes to online rewards sites, the referral program is always your best bet to earning points and redeeming them for cash or gift cards. It’s money or gift cards earned just by signing up and encouraging others to do so. A special note on iRazoo referrals, though: there seems to be an earning cap for each referral you make and who earns points in turn. This is unfortunate, because I haven’t encountered this yet in other GPT sites, which usually allows you to earn a percentage from your all your referrals’ earnings.
The second-best way to earn is through completing offers. You can sign up for magazine subscriptions, try out new products, and generally choose offers from companies you actually like. These offers usually earn more points compared to other tasks in GPT sites.
Paid surveys do pay you for your time, but the biggest issue with it has always been if you meet their qualifications. There have been many complaints from members who are in the middle or at the tail-end of answering a survey, only to be signed out all of a sudden because they weren’t a good fit for it. In short, time wasted, and absolutely no compensation for all that time and effort.
Judging by the very detailed members’ testimonies (complete with date stamp and headshots) and an actual physical address in Lower Manhattan (complete with a Google map), I would venture to say that iRazoo is a legitimate GPT site. Also, iRazoo offers PayPal cash payments, which is pretty rare among online rewards site as PayPal can be very strict about the kind of transactions they allow.
But being legit doesn’t always mean it’s a great way to make money during your free time, even with all the perks it seemingly offers. All I’m saying is, don’t count on the money you will be making from it to pay your rent or overdue bills, or even as a solution to financial emergencies.
