WeReward is an application that lets users earn virtual points for checking in and completing tasks in real world locations. Different check in spots and company-sponsored activities are assigned different point values, and users can eventually “cash out” their WeReward points for actual money that’s delivered via their linked up PayPal account.
To start earning points with WeReward, download the application’s mobile app to your iPhone and connect it with your Twitter, Foursquare, or Facebook account. Whether you’re going to dinner, drinks, or a Broadway show, you can check in on WeReward when you arrive and start earning points that will accumulate in your WeReward account. Browse on your WeReward home screen to see how many points each business in your local area is offering when you come and check in, or search by name and keyword to get information about one location in particular. The amount of points you’ll earn for each check in depends on whether the location has been verified and whether the business owners have set up any “tasks” that have to be completed in order to earn your points, such as taking a photo of yourself eating in the restaurant and uploading it into the app.
Each WeReward point is worth one penny in real world cash, and you can cash out your points as soon as you reach 1,000. The money will be sent directly to your PayPal account where you can transfer it to your bank or use it to make other purchases online. For anyone who enjoys using Foursquare but wishes they could earn something tangible for checking in all over town, WeReward is the application you’ve been looking for.
