Top 3 mobile apps for Malaysians to earn real rewards and money


As the MCO or Movement Control Order has extended, many Malaysians are stuck at home with just their smartphones, rapidly dwindling savings and nearly no way to earn anything. While it’s not impossible to do work with just your smartphone (we do it all the time), here’s how to earn real rewards and money with just your smartphone using these top 3 mobile apps.

#1. 8coin - share content on social media

If you like to share stuff on social media, you can get 8coins for this which you can exchange for free stuff, extra cash and vouchers. Granted, you’ll have to share Specials that have to be shared by others before you can earn more 8coins but it's backed by Media Prima Digital, so it's definitely legit. Get started with 8coin on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.



#2. GigaGigs - microtasks for cash

Microtasks on GigaGigs include completing surveys or trying out new products or services. If you complete them you can earn money or points.

While signing up is free, some of the products or services may require money to try out but each survey is generally RM2 or more. You can download GigaGigs on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.



#3. Google Opinion Rewards - Quick surveys for free Play Store credit

Relatively new, the Google Opinion Rewards app offers you free Google Play Store credit when you answer quick surveys. While this means you're limited to paid apps and in-app purchases, at least you don't have to use real money for this.

Obviously, it's available on the Google Play Store but it's also on the Apple App Store as well.
