    "I am not going to lie but I am the type of an impulsive shopper when I see something I like I buy it without thinking if I'll use this. I also admit that sometimes I even forget to pay my cc bills but with Debx it automatically pays off my everyday cc purchases. Isn't that amazing?"

      "Some of us senior citizens "got our kicks from Route 66," but people have been getting kicks from shopping for much longer. Now if you're a shopaholic, this might be the last thing you need in your life. But if you're not, this is a reasonable competitor in the field that has a lot of them. It has decent ratings on Google Play, but a lot of customers with issues as well. So it's not the best, but it's decent."

The app provides users with "missions" to be secret shoppers, but frequently the requirements to receive payment are so long that it's not worth the effort, or worse the server will fail to accept uploads and the mission will fail, resulting in no payment."

Also, I seem to regularly get discounted from surveys after answering qualification questions. So I like the app but it would be better if there were more paying surveys to go around."

      "Personally, I never used this app myself but I used eBay both to buy and to sell a lot. I should say that eBay rips sellers off. Their fees are huge (about 15% if you're just an occasional seller and you don't buy a shop account). Mercadi is definitely worth a try. Based on the numerous reviews (yes, there are many people using it), they have drawbacks but try really hard to fix it (their team responded to all recent customer reviews in Google Play, to all)."

You get bonus on signup and several bonuses after completing specific rides. You can work your own hours which is the best part about it. I would not give it a five star because it has no customer support and there are some things that need to be solved for the drivers. Only way to contact is through email which takes a few days to get a reply."
