Fancy earning a little extra in your free time? Then why not do it from your phone? Take a look at this Curious Cat review to see how much you can expect to earn.
Having 3 children and a full-time job, the fact that I can find time to go to the toilet can be nothing short of a miracle. This leaves me little time to do my favourite pastime of earning money. I’ve found one of the best ways to make extra is through my phone, so I’m always keen to try different apps. When I stumbled across the Curious Cat app, it sounded ideal so I thought I would give it a whirl.
What is Curious Cat?
Curious Cat is an app you can download to your phone (either for Apple or Android) that allows you to earn money.
Taken from their FAQ’s:
You’re valuable and you should be rewarded for it!
In the Curious Cat, you will be offered the chance to take surveys and try new apps for real cash rewards, paid via Paypal.
Now, this app is very cat orientated. I have no idea why, unless it was designed by some crazy cat lady. However, my mum isn’t that good with technology, so I guess there may be another reason.
You also receive points if you click on a survey and don’t qualify. Well, when I say points, I mean point. So 1 penny but I suppose it’s better than nothing.
The majority of surveys are not actually run by Curious Cat, which means they act as the middleman (or is that cat?) There are a couple of issues with this. It means Curious Cat takes a slice of your fee from the original survey company, which obviously means less pay for you. Plus, you can sometimes find yourself visiting a survey site, only to find that you have to fill out some more profile questions and then you end up being disqualified anyway. And if you hate cats, this is probably the worst survey site for you.
As Curious Cat links you to other sites, it means that how much you earn from each survey can vary. The worst I have seen is 18 points for a 25-minute survey. That is the equivalent of under 50 pence per hour. They aren’t all as bad as this though and expect to earn, on average, around 65 pence for a 10-minute survey – around £4 per hour. The app is great for cashing out – the money is usually in your PayPal account within minutes.
My Curious Cat review conclusion
So is it worth it? Not really. It’s great that you can complete a couple of surveys and withdraw your earnings in such a short space of time. And I love being able to earn money from my phone, but there are far better survey sites to do it with. The pay is just too low to consider this a long-term earner. Even if you are some kind of crazy cat lady.
