Is the Premise App Legit?

I Cashed Out Several Times with This App

by J.M. Troppello

As a freelance writer – and especially now with rising costs of living – I’m always on the lookout for different side hustles to make extra money. I recently reviewed the Swagbucks app. You can read my article: How to Make Money with Swagbucks.

Another app that I started using is the Premise App. I wasn’t sure if it was a legitimate way to earn extra cash, so I researched about it online. I saw some good reviews and decided to check it out for myself. It’s free to create an account. I already reached the $10 cash-out threshold a few times and cashed out to my PayPal account.

What is the Premise App

The Premise App is a survey app. I like this app because the surveys offered are simple and can be completed in 3-4 minutes. You can earn between $0.20 - $0.50 per survey. Some surveys pay a bit more but those are not too common in queue.

The app is easy to navigate, which is different from some survey apps that I tried, which are more convoluted. I also like this app because they offer a few other ways to earn money as well by completing tasks. For example, they list products that are usually available at various stores like Acme, Giant, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Dollar Tree etc. You go to the store listed for that product name and barcode. They provide you with a description and where it is likely displayed.

Once you find the item, you have 5-10 minutes to complete the task – after clicking the button to start. For these product location tasks, you will need to take photos of the product – on all sides – so that the text is clearly visible. The photos must be free of light glare or hands obstructing any of the text.

In full disclosure, I tried this portion of the tasks from the app. I went to Walmart and tried to locate some products. However, it was a bit more difficult than I’d thought. I guess that’s why they pay around $10 per product that you find. The day I went to Walmart, they had around 30 products for this store. I could’ve made $300 if I’d found all the products. I didn’t want to waste time when I had writing projects to finish at home, so I left after about 30 minutes of trying to find the products. I think it was difficult because the products were niche brands, and the store didn’t have those in stock that day. I may try this part of the tasks from the app again at some point.

They also have location tasks where you go to any grocery store near you and take a photo of a box of Cheerios and then input information about the product and store. I had wanted to try those location tasks. However, they showed up in the queue in the evening, but when I went back to check in the morning, those tasks weren’t available again. Those tasks seem much easier because they showed well-known brands. I guess that’s also why they listed those earnings for around $0.60 -$1.50.

They have some explore tasks listed which I haven’t tried yet either. For those tasks, they list a store, provide directions, ask you to go there, and then create a video of you capturing the requested information. You have 20-30 minutes to complete these tasks. It’s important to make sure the lighting conditions are bright. These tasks usually pay $6.00 - $10.00. I haven’t tried these explore tasks yet but am looking forward to trying one.

I’ve already cashed out 4 times doing the surveys on this Premise App. I made $40 in three weeks. That’s not going to get me rich, but it’s nice having some extra cash! I like that the review period for the completed surveys is 24-72 hours. Once it’s approved, you can cash out to your PayPal and receive it in 1-3 days.

One other important note, you can do surveys more than once and get paid for them. I thought that was odd, but I checked with tech support at the app and asked why some surveys I completed showed up in the queue multiple times. I was told that if they are in the queue, you can complete the surveys again.
