SITES LIKE Shopalong


Shopalong is a mobile community where you can earn cash for completing fun assignments at the places you visit every day. Your opinions will shape future shopping experiences retailers and manufacturers can give you. Shopalong is run by Purchased, a market research firm that works with consumer brands.

Fun, Interactive Assignments

Participate in fun assignments such as taking pictures of products, logging the shopping trips you take to find certain items for holidays, celebrations, etc., preparing shopping lists, etc. Every assignment is different.

Download the App on Google Play or iTunes

To become a participant in the Shopalong program, you must first download the app. It's available on iOS and Android devices and will enable you to check into stores, upload receipts, etc.

Participate In Assignments!

An assignment is a fun and easy way for you to earn rewards. Assignments might be things like logging all the shopping trips you take when shopping for things like items you need around the house, or logging what you are buying for special events like Mother's Day, Black Friday or other holidays. Other assignments may ask you to keep a digital diary of what you experience throughout the day. There are typically 3 phases to assignments: qualifying for the assignment, answering polls and participating in the requisite activities, and taking a final wrap-up survey on your assignment. You must finish the assignment and all of its requirements in order to collect your rewards.

Earn Cash for Assignment Completions

Every assignment you complete will be rewarded with a cash incentive, which ranges between $5 to $50. The amount of cash you receive will be dependent on the length and complexity of the assignment itself. There are no points systems to figure out and you can collect your earnings via PayPal or a pre-paid Visa card as soon as you have a cash balance in your account. There's NO minimum balance needed in your account to request a payment!

Bonus App Features

Besides allowing you to earn cash rewards, the Shopalong app features some great features such as being able to set a budget and track how much you are spending. You can also view your own personalized shopping report which can be compared to other members of the Shopalong community.

Dont waste your time!

November 22, 2019 by Marie from United States

Finished doing a 2 week assignment didnt get last survey. After 3 emails telling them I hadn't received they got back to me and gave me instructions on how to record my last activity. I did what they asked and they said it was missing info. Went back and fixed and still they said it was missing info! A waste of time!!! Will not participate in any more assignments from this company!

Love This App.

I have completed an assignment with Shopalong & was paid I did an assignment for 30 days had fun doing it And received my FINAL SURVEY with no issues thru the whole 30 days. And after I completed my FINAL SURVEY was paid ASAP. I absolutely love this site. I do wish I would receive more assignments tho. That is the only issue I have. Thank you ShopAlong for being legit & so much fun.

Avoid any opportunities from this organisation. Set unrealistic conditions on payment - I got poll at 3.20 am which had to completed in the next hour. I am in process of complaining to panel I got offer from and market research institute - to try to get them closed down from their unprofessional practices. Still getting poll request from even though diary ended 7 days ago plus do not respond to emails complaints

I did the study as asked and then when it was time to take the final survey, which I had to do to get paid, it wouldn't let me. After that got fixed it wouldn't let me get my reward. Now they just wont respond to my emails. My time is important and I feel like I just wasted a week of it.
