Looking for a website that allows you to earn money from completing offers, free trials, and much more. Take a look at this OhMyDosh review to see that even though I made money, why I’m still not convinced.
Updated May 2020.
Looking for a way to make some extra money from home? Well, I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of offers advertised, but the trouble is telling the legitimate money making schemes from the scams.
I’m naturally a sceptical person, so usually, many making schemes I try to avoid. However, for the sake of my blog, I have been trying out more and more ways.
I was recently contacted by OhMyDosh through my webpage, offering for me to take a look at a great new way of earning money. Not one to turn down some extra cash, I thought I would give it a go.
Now, I saw plenty of reviews spring-up about how good this site was within a week of it going live. The issue was, it took at least a month for OhMyDosh to pay out on their offers, so I wasn’t sure how genuine or legitimate these reviews were. That’s why mine came out a little later than others. I couldn’t really say it was a great money making site if they hadn’t actually paid me, could I?
What is OhMyDosh?
Simply put, OhMyDosh is a way to make extra money from home by signing up to services and trials that are often free.
Taken from their website:
Earning money on OhMyDosh! is as easy as 123, (which conveniently is as easy as ABC). Just look through the site and take any offers that are of interest to you. You can do this from the comfort of home or even on the go. Once the advertiser has confirmed you have fully completed the offer, it will change from pending to payable, you can find all this info by clicking the ‘History’ button in the account section of the site. At this point you’ll see some sweet dosh appear in your account.
Is OhMyDosh a Legitimate site?
OhMyDosh is owned by Technology Submission Limited, a British company based in Kent and incorporated back in 2002.
Although a relatively new site to the internet world, the company has been operating a very similar website called 20 Cogs for many years. You will also find plenty of positive reviews on Trustpilot.
How does OhMyDosh work?
Basically, large companies want you to try their products. They often think that once you try it, you’ll be hooked and a customer for life. So, to get their product “out there” they offer financial incentives to people or companies who encourage you to sign up.
For example, Amazon may pay a fee of £3 for every customer OhMyDosh gets to trial Amazon Prime. Once OhMyDosh receives the money, they pass it on to you. At least, some of the money.
When you complete a purchase or sign up, you should receive an email from OhMyDosh soon after. As long as everything runs smoothly, you should receive payment into your account within 45 days.
There were quite a few offers available when I joined. Some are completely free without any hassle, such as 50 pence for a SIM card from giffgaff. The site is a great way of earning a small amount of money in a short period of time.
But small amounts of cash isn’t what we’re all about and there are also opportunities to earn even more by completing surveys.
There is a daily prize on offer. One random member will earn a £10 ‘Daily Dosh’ reward. Although you do need to claim it, so it could be easily missed.
OhMyDosh offers quite a generous referral scheme. If friends or family sign up through your link, you receive £5 when they cashout £10.
You have to remember to cancel a lot of the offers, otherwise you will lose money when they start charging you. 6 of the accounts I signed up to could be cancelled through their respective websites, whilst 1 I could cancel over email.
You also have to be careful and read some of the deals carefully. One offered a free Graze box plus £1.25 cashback, but clicking on the link offered me 3 boxes for £1.99. That would have meant losing a small amount of money. And don’t forget, I’m only here to earn.
Another drawback is that it supposed to take 45 days before the money hits your account. I found that all my earnings took longer than that, and I’m still waiting for some after 90 days. Plus, one of my trials for £5 failed to pay-out. I couldn’t find out why and I wasn’t even sent a notification to let me know.
The surveys aren’t really worth doing. On average, they pay around 30 pence for 10 minutes which is far less than most other survey sites. Although I did earn 50 pence from one survey which had 3 questions, so it’s not all bad.
How much can you make with OhMyDosh?
I managed to earn over £25 (should have been £30, but £5 was declined) in less than 30 minutes for a cost of £2. This included free trials with NowTV, hayu, and Audiobooks. The trials I had to pay for (Which and Football Pools) paid £17.50 between them. However, with Football Pools, you have to set up a Direct Debit and you have to be quick to cancel it before they take extra money from you.
Once you hit a minimum of £10, you can either withdraw your earnings straight into your bank account or via PayPal.
Recently, OhMyDosh introduced their own survey section. Now, I’m actually a big fan of surveys and they can be a decent way to earn an extra income without too much effort.
The issue is, some survey sites are far better than others and OhMyDosh certainly falls into the terrible category. Most sites pay between 60 pence and £1 for 10 minutes of your time.
This one doesn’t get anywhere near that. On average, you will earn around 15 pence for 10 minutes. That works at just under £1 an hour. Let’s be honest, that’s pretty insulting and I hate it when companies try to take advantage of people like that.
My OhMyDosh review conclusion
So, is OhMyDosh worthwhile? You can certainly make some decent money in the short-term. However, after a few weeks, I couldn’t find many new offers on there. And from what I can see, the majority of the offers aren’t exclusive to OhMyDosh. In fact, I found most of these offers available on Swagbucks, and some paid more and the money would be available sooner (4300 Swagbucks is equivalent to around £30 in Amazon vouchers).
This is certainly a site worth considering but only expect to earn a decent amount every few months or so. You must also be prepared for some of the offers not to pay-out. I know we shouldn’t, but I have come to terms with accepting it now.
If this OhMyDosh review hasn’t convinced you, take a look at 20 Cogs, which could be a bigger earner. Although bear in mind that 20 Cogs and OhMyDosh are owned by the same company.

After 2 years, I decided to return to OhMyDosh to check my account. 2 of my offers are still marked as pending. Although I submitted tickets, nothing seems to have moved on. And opening and submitting a ticket isn’t the simplest process either.
For a gambling offer you need to do the following:
Please provide 4 screenshots.
1 – Your account page showing both
your and the retailer’s name.
2 – The time and date of your deposit
