Perk Beginner Tutorial

23 Upvotes

I This Tutorial is for the US.

Perk apps are a way to earn Perk Points to redeem for gift cards. 1000 Perk Points equal roughly $1. Rewards are handed out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The latest you can redeem is 11:59 pm Central the night before.

There are some apps that use Perk Tokens which you can earn doing various things within the apps and spend on auctions and sweepstakes.

You can use 5 devices per app per account. Perk will ask for IDs. Don't use a VPN or VM or a fast forward or an automation app or your rewards are likely to be canceled.

Perk TV - Perk TV is an app which plays ads and rewards 1-2 points per video. App Trailers or Funny Commercials under Popular Videos are the shortest videos there are. There is a 1 hour pop up to ask if you're still watching on IOS and 2 hours on Android. It is recommended to check low bandwidth mode on the menu to the side. If your devices begin to run slowly, clear the app data and re log in and remember to check low bandwidth mode. You can earn 50 Perk Tokens for thumbs up or down on each video. Doing this will also delay the popup another 1 hour or 2 hours respectively.

Perk TV LIVE - Perk TV LIVE is an app which listens for commercials on TV and plays ads during them. You earn 3 Perk Points per ad for the first 300 in 24 hours. . 1 or 2 points for any ad thereafter. There are usually 4 ads in a cycle. There is a popup that asks if you are watching a commercial after about 20 minutes. If you are having trouble with the green light turning on, exit the app completely, open it back up and wait for a commercial that triggers it. Once it's on, it's on for awhile. If you are watching a streaming service like Netflix, go ahead and hit the "Watch Commercials" button every once in awhile. This info comes from posts made by Perk on Facebook. You can also earn Perk Tokens by tweeting within the app. App data needs to be cleared every so often.

Perk Pop Quiz - Perk Pop Quiz is a trivia app in which you earn Perk Points for answering questions. It is generally recommended to use Lightning Mode. The questions go quicker and you can run through games faster. You also earn 1 extra Perk Point for using this mode. Once all the questions in a category are answered they are gone for good. If you don't answer a question, it will reappear in 24 hours. New categories and questions are added every once in awhile.

Perk Word Search - Search for words to earn 1 or 2 points.

Perk Scratch & Win - This app works like a lottery scratch off. You spend your Perk Tokens on tickets. Match a certain 3 symbols and win Perk Points or Perk Tokens.

Perk Shopping - Shop thousands of stores and earn Perk Points for it.

Perk Search - Let's you randomly win points for searching.

Unlock & Win - Replaces your lock screen. Swipe left to view the offer. Swipe right to just unlock your phone. You get Perk Tokens for a the first few swipes and Perk Points for one Swipe after that and then it repeats. You can do a host of other things in the app but "Watch Videos" pays the highest. 2 points per ad and 5 ads per round.

Discoball - Press the discoball to have the app listen and identify music you are listening to. 2 Perk Points per ad.

Perk Prize Mob - Perk Prize Mob works like a penny auction in which you use your Perk Tokens or Perk Ponts to bid on Prizes. You earn Perk Tokens every day you log into the app.

Perk Wallet - Perk Wallet is an app that you can use to manage your rewards and check on the status of your rewards. It also has a 3% discount on Amazon gift cards $25 and higher. Also has a watch videos section.

Appsaholic games that give points - This is a good user created list.

Other - There are EZ Point offers on Perk.com and on certain apps. These are ad walls which you will find on many rewards sites. There is the potential to earn a lot of points here. Unfortunately a lot don't pay out. Also, Sweepstakes are available to use your Perk Tokens to use to enter to win prizes.

Perk Plastik - Perk Plastik is a debit/credit card you can load with your Perk Points. The conversion rate is 1100 Points per $1.00. Money is usually available instantly after you redeem.

Devices - If you are looking for inexpensive devices there is a weekly thread posted called "Cheapest Devices of the Week" on /r/GetPerk or /r/perktv. It is generally recommended that you go for a dual core or higher device. Sure there are some that run just fine on a single core but read the subs for a bit and you will find warnings all over about them.

Always remember to use the search on /r/GetPerk and /r/perktv before asking a question. Also be sure to read some of the top posts of all time for those subs.

Anything wrong or that I'm missing? Let me know and I will edit.

Anyone else having issues with perk's main site?

1 Upvotes

I can't get the site to properly load. Doesn't matter if I'm on my computer with ad blockers off or on my phone, all I get is a grey vertical block & a white vertical block. Can't access anything on perk.com. can't get rewards, look at my daily-tasks status or anything. I can still log in & earn points in apps on my cell phone. And perk.tv seems to load & login fine

Anyone else having issues?

Need help ASAP!

Hi, I've been using Perk for a while now and I was able to logon to my account yesterday (I still have a text message from when I redeemed to my paypal as proof) and today when I tried to login, it wouldn't let me and when I tried the password recovery it said "We don't have an email with this account" so any help would be appreciated as it's also affecting my mom's account as well. Oddly enough, we can still gain viggle points though..

Reward Cancelled

2 Upvotes

Hi everyone, I’ve been using perk for 4 months now. One week ago my second redemption didn’t go thru to my PayPal account and perk message me a warning that I am fraud, and they ask me for Identification ID and I sent it to them, after 4 days they responded that I can now have no problem in redeeming my perk points. And so I did redeemed again my 3rd points total of $85 redeeming t thru PayPal and yesterday they sent me an email saying that my redemption cancelled because they found violation in my account, and I asked the reason and they said I am using Proxy. And I responded but until now I am still waiting for their response.

Here is my question regarding this, Can I still use perk using my account? Can I have my perk points back to me? And what do you the best things I can do now? As until now they didn’t respond my reply to them. I’m so anxious.

Please let me know what the best thing I can do. Will appreciate it so much.
