I’d always wondered if I could make money installing apps. It seems that the reality is now. There seems to be a slew of financial technology companies that are offering cash incentives to new customers. With varying services available for you to try, Even if you don’t like these apps, you can take the money and run. Take a look to see how I made £20 by installing these 4 apps in a matter of minutes below.
It’s no get rich quick internet pyramid scheme, but it’s a quick and easy way to top up your bank balance with a little bit of beer money. Make sure you read and understand the terms and conditions for each application before signing up.
Some of these offers may have changed. There’s an updated list of these offers and more in my 2019 Free Money Guide

Make Money Installing Apps : How to get £70 free from the Monese App
Monese (Monese Ltd) is an app that I’m still in the process of reviewing. It’s essentially another current account offering a bonus for new customers.
FEB 2022: It’s back on offer! I’m a big fan of Monese and I’d recommend that you try signing up to see if it’s something that’d work for you! The current offer is a bit vague on the process though.
- Download Monese from your respective app store or click here
- Follow the signup process and use this invite code when prompted – DANIE101 (if you don’t use this code, you don’t get the bonus)
- Verify your identity with one of the requested methods (I used my Driving Licence)
- Deposit at least £50 into your Monese Account via bank transfer.
- Claim your first reward within 48 hours after your card transaction on your Monese card.
- After signing up, continue to use the Monese card for at least £500 worth of purchases or bank transfers to claim up to £70. Who would think that you can make money installing apps?
You can also earn rewards by inviting your friends to use Monese.
Make Money Installing Apps : How to get £5 free from the Curve App
FEB 2022 : Curve have changed it up again. The £5 reward still seems to be mentioned in the app, but there’s definately more push to the 1% cashback. If you only use your Curve Card, like me, this can add up.
I wrote about my first month with the Curve App (Curve London) and Card here. I’m still a big fan despite finding a few niggles.
- Head over to The Curve Website and enter your phone number or download Curve from your respective app store.
- Follow the sign up process using the app (Use code VV1NJ where prompted if you want £5 free Curve Rewards and 1% cashback on (almost) everything after your first transaction – if you don’t use the code, you can still get the card, but no bonus).
- Once the signup is completed, wait a few days for your card to be delivered.
- While you’re waiting for your new card, register your existing cards in the app – this takes a small payment to allow you validate the card. This is refunded.
- When it’s delivered, verify your card in the app.
- Replace your default cards with your shiny new Curve card.
- The £5 here is added to your Curve Rewards virtual card that you can spend anywhere. I don’t believe you can withdraw this from a cashpoint though. (This money sits pending until you make your first purchase in the Curve card)
After signing up you can get more Curve Rewards by referring your friends to the service.
