I'm a big fan of Amazon, so I get a little excited when I find new ways to earn free gift cards. I recently came across a newly released app called Job Spotter that will allow you to earn Amazon store credit while helping other people in your community find a job. That’s something we can get behind here at The Work at Home Wife.
The Job Spotter app has only been around a few months. As it relates to job search, it shouldn’t be too surprising that it was introduced by Indeed. While Indeed is certainly one of the most popular online job boards, and one we love for finding work from home, it doesn’t always have a good selection of small mom-and-pop shop local leads available. That’s where you come in.
How Does the Job Spotter App Work?
Many small retailers and restaurants don’t post their jobs online or often even in the local newspapers. The only way people come across their openings is by word of mouth or seeing a Help Wanted sign while they are out and about. As a Job Spotter, you report these We’re Hiring signs back to Indeed and receive a bounty in exchange for your efforts. So far, Indeed is reporting about 6,000 new jobs being submitted through the app each week.
The app is available in both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. There’s no cost to download it or set up an account. As a Spotter, you will simply take a couple of photos when you see a Help Wanted sign while you are out in your city. Once approved, you will receive 50 points. Every 100 points equals a $1 Amazon gift card. That means you will have enough for a gift card after just two submitted job leads. Not too shabby.
There are also monthly contests. These are a little more time consuming and there is no guarantee of a bonus. Only the top submitter each month receives a $300 Amazon gift card. Regardless, however, you will still receive 50 points for each one you do submit so it’s not a total waste of time if you are a girl on the go.
How Do I Get Started as a Job Spotter?
- You can download the app on your smartphone from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
- Register with a Facebook account or email address.
- Start taking photos of the Help Wanted signs you see in your community.
- When you reach 100 points, you can request a gift card.
You aren’t going to get rich, especially considering you are just earning Amazon gift cards as opposed to cash, but this is still a great extra earner. These opportunities are great for saving up throughout the year and using to pay for your Christmas shopping.
The Job Spotter app requires very little effort with a decent return. And, it’s from Indeed. This is a site we highly trust and know is legit. You don’t need to worry about being scammed with this one. Download the app here.
