While looking at ways to make money from home, I’ve tried a few mobile apps recently. So far I’ve been disappointed with the potential to make money with some of the apps around like OnePulse and CitizenMe. Another app I’ve loaded onto my phone is Streetbees. In this post, I’ll walk you through my experience with Steetbees and why I think this is an app trumps both CitizenMe and OnePulse.

What is Streetbees?
Streetbees is a money-making app that sends you short tasks and surveys that you can get paid for. It’s available on either iPhone orAndroid and is free to install.
Is Streetbees Legitimate?
Yes – Streetbees is a genuine money earning app that pays you for answering short surveys on your phone.
What are the Streetbees Tasks like?
Streetbees Surveys are a little bit different to standard survey sites like Prolific Academic and PopulusLive. Unlike website-based survey sites, all surveys are delivered via the Streetbees app. which you can download on iTunes or Google Play for free.
Streetbees surveys tend to be slightly longer, and often require a bit more interaction. You often need to take a photo or short video for example.
How the surveys are delivered is also very different to most other survey apps and sites. Streetbees delivers the surveys and tasks in messaging format, like WhatsApp for example. This is really unique and quite a nice feature.
On the downside, some of the survey requirements can be a bit cryptic, so it’s sometimes unclear what you actually need to do to take part.
How does Streetbees Pay You and How Much Can You Earn?
The great thing about Streetbees is that it pays you pretty much as soon as a story is approved, which is great. There’s no minimum cash out balance either which is pretty cool. Payment is made via PayPal once a week.
The pay rates for the tasks are good. They vary depending on the task (or story as they’re called within the Streetbees app). Most of them though tend to be at least £1 each for less than 5 minutes’ worth of work. This gives a rate higher than the highest a paying survey site I currently use – Populus Live which pays £1 per 5 minutes of your time (£12 /hr)
I’ve also had some task that pay more than this, for example I recently I had a series of daily tasks where I recorded my shopping. (ShoppingDiary task). This paid £2 for each shopping list I recorded an answered a few short questions on and took less than 5 minutes – KerrChiinng!!!!
They tasks do tend to be very sporadic though, so after getting a flurry of well-paid surveys, I’m now back to the screen below….
Streetbeees Refer a Friend
Streetbees has a refer a friend program where you can earn for each friend who uses your code. My Streetbees referral code is 7967MH.
- Very good rate of pay for the short tasks
- Quite fun tasks
- Convenient – as it’s an app you can compete the tasks whenever you’ve got a few spare minutes
- Quick payment via PayPal with no Cash Out limit
- Descriptions for some of the surveys can be a bit cryptic
- Sporadic number of surveys. After a flurry in November I haven’t had any paid tasks to complete so it’s not a consistent earner.
- No push notifications so you need to keep checking back. This is a real pain to be honest and severely limits the potential to earn.
- As with other survey sites screening out can be frustrating
Streetbees is worth installing on your phone -it’s not going to make you rich, but it will give you a little extra pocket money each month. The payment is decent for the tasks you get and the fact that you get paid within a few days with no cash-out limit is a great plus. I much prefer this to the likes of One Pulse where you have to hit $5 to cash out (I still haven’t hit this!).
So, all in all a fun little app that can make you a bit of extra cash when you have a few minutes.
