It's thru Chat threads and it's mobile(I did a mobile survey with them last year).When I first read it it said you can earn anywhere from $5 to $50 per assignment then.I was okay they were good to do business with .
Here's the 1st invite

In return, we'll offer you rewards (typically $5-$50 per assignment) as soon as you finish. It's that easy!


Then after signing up and getting a invite here is what it said.

We’ll email you occasionally to invite you to participate in assignments.
If you qualify and choose to participate, you’ll tell us about your shopping plans, check in when you shop at a store, and upload pictures of your receipts for any purchases.
You’ll also answer a few quick polls for us along the way and tell us about your shopping experiences in a final survey.
If you stick with us and complete all the steps along the way, you’ll receive awesome rewards like Amazon.com gift cards

So which is it cash or AGC?Has anyone else done anything for them?It's been a few years since I have and I was wondering if they have gone downhill or not.

Hi footfree,

This is Walter from Shopalong. We are still here and would love for you to participate with us again. You are right that currently we offer AGC for rewards and are looking to add in other reward options like PayPal and other gift card choices. We would love to hear your feedback on this.



I got my first assignment from you a couple of days ago and if I had qualified I thought it said it was a cash offer.At least that's what I thought I read but oh well I didn't qualify.Anyway I would personally prefer Paypal and no visa prepaid gift cards(especially if they charge a maintenance fee). Gift cards to Amazon and most major retailers are okay too.I look forward to qualifying also, the last time I did I had a good experience and would recommend people to join.

@footfree: Sorry if there was any confusion about reward choices and thanks for the feedback about what you'd like to see from us in the future. Some reward options take longer for to us to get to you (but we can get you AGC right away!), so this is another aspect we are looking into as we consider which reward options to add. And please continue to try to qualify for our assignments - we have some great ones coming!

@1957horses: We pride ourselves on our support and responsiveness. For each assignment we have a team of Shopalong Sidekicks to help you out if you run into any trouble and we aim to get back to you quickly. And in terms of how long before the payoff, once you fully complete the Shopalong assignment you can receive your reward right away (again, if you choose AGC we can get those to you super fast). Let me know if you have any other questions or feedback!

Hi @hermit. Sorry for the delay... I think we ended up helping via our Support Desk. Right now we are offering U.S.-based programs. We invite you to continue receiving emails from us so you'll know if and when we offer U.K.-based programs. Thanks so much for your interest in Shopalong!

I just completed my first assignment with Shopalong and am happy with the process.

There were a few issues. My receipt was very hard to read and was even harder to read in the picture of it I uploaded with the Shopalong app.

The Support Desk contacted me by email within an hour and we sorted out everything that they could not see on the receipt. It took 3 emails but I understand. There is no way they could have made out the details without asking me to clarify.

The final survey was very easy as was the other tasks and as soon as I submitted the final survey the Amazon.com Gift Card code was immediately placed on my Shopalong Dashboard.

Nice program! I'm looking forward to more. :wink:

I recently downloaded the Shopalong app to my Iphone 4s and signed up. My first project was for black Friday shopping. I had to upload my receipts from all of my shopping that day. The instructions said in store or on line shopping qualified. I up loaded all of my receipts and then had to verify them once they approved them (yes, someone did approved my receipts!!). I did all of this and then on the day the survey was set to end all of my info mysteriously disappeared from the app. I sent their support a message and they brought my info back but the next day it was gone again. Again, I contacted support and was told that none of my receipts qualified (bs reasons given such as they were on line orders....orders that the initial instructions said would qualify, btw) and I would not get the $40 compensation. I spent a lot of time uploading and re-uploading and then verifying the receipts and doing all the required surveys for this project and they have all my shopping data yet I am not being compensated at all because some one decided to change the rules at the end of the game. I would watch out for this company, you give them all the data they want and then they make up new rules that dq you from the compensation $$.
