You hear a lot about apps you can make money with, but how many of those apps are actually legit? Today we are doing a review on Field Agent, which is an app that people can actually make real money with and even get free stuff.
Field Agent is one of the best kept money-making secrets. We downloaded this app several months ago to try out (as we do with many other apps.) Shortly after downloading, we discovered that this app is completely different than most money related applications you will find.
We briefly talked about this app in our 102 Side Hustle Ideas post, but we love it so much we thought it deserved its own spotlight. With very little effort, we have been able to use Field Agent as a legit side hustle.
What does Field Agent do?
Field Agent pays people (a.k.a. agents) to collect photos, video, and information using their smartphones. Agents do audits, mystery shopping, product reviews, and more.
Here is a screenshot of the current job categories available:
How much can you earn with Field Agent?
You can earn as little or as much as you want, depending on how many jobs you do. Each job usually ranges between $3.00-$8.00 and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
If you do the math, that’s equivalent to making $30.00-$80.00 an hour. However, jobs aren’t available all the time, so you won’t be able to earn a full-time income.
What is required to be an agent?
Not much! You’ll need a smartphone. These are the steps to get started:
- Download the Field Agent app
- Register a new account
- Answer the profile questions
- Allow Field Agent to access your location. You won’t be able to see nearby jobs if you don’t allow the use of location.
- Complete the “Agent Briefcase” trainings. These are short training sessions that will teach you how to quickly complete jobs.
- Start accepting jobs and completing them! (More jobs will show up upon successful completion of other tasks.)
How long does it take to get paid?
After you complete a job, your work will be reviewed by their quality control team. Once approved, the money will be uploaded to your Field Agent account.
You will find that they are usually pretty quick to approve your job submissions. Most of the time the jobs will be approved between 24-72 hours. I’ve had money deposited the same day and have even had jobs take more than a week to get approved.
You can check the status of your jobs under the “statistics” tab.
How do you cash out on Field Agent?
Cashing out is simple. While in the app, locate the menu option and select the “cash out” tab. Enter where you want your payment to transfer to and press “complete transaction.”
As of now, you only need a minimum of $3.00 to cash out.
How do I make even more money with this app?
If you have followed Family and FI for a while, or you are in our Facebook group, you know that I LOVE double dipping deals. My favorite way to make even more money with this app is by using it along side coupon sites like Ibotta.
For example, the last jobs I completed were “buy and try” jobs with the laundry detergents and dog bones in the photo above. (update* dog bones not pictured due to dog eating bones before I could take the photo.) I bought the products, uploaded my receipt, and completed a review of the items.
Then, two days later, Field Agent reimbursed me what I spent, and paid me $3.00 for each of my four reviews. Great, right?
Well, it gets even better. I found out that Ibotta had digital coupons for those exact same products ranging from $0.50 to $2.00. After uploading my receipts to Ibotta, I made an extra $5.00 in less than a minute.
Additionally, I also upload all my receipts to Fetch Rewards in order to earn points for earn gift cards and keep track of my receipts. You can use the links above to download these additional apps if you like to double dip.
At the end of the day, for about 30 minutes of extra work, I made $17.00 cash plus got about $50.00 in free products! That’s $34.00 an hour or $84.00 if you include the value of the products!
Is the Field Agent app legit?
Yes, Field Agent is a legit app that pays you to work jobs. Unfortunately, nobody is going to get rich off of this app, but you can make it into a seriously easy and convenient side hustle. I’ve seen people make thousands of dollars a year by hustling on this app.
In conclusion, Field Agent is without a doubt the best app I’ve found to make extra money on your own time. You don’t have to accept any jobs you don’t want to, yet, you can also work as many as much as you want. This kind of flexibility provides such simplicity and convenience to its users.
