What is Spare5?
Spare5 is a website that will allow you to earn money by doing simple tasks. They have an app for iOS devices but not for Android devices. You can still earn through them on your Android device by using your browser.
The tasks don’t pay a lot, but I think that you will not have any issues while doing them. This type of tasks are called micro-tasks because they are not time consuming. The app is available in over 100 countries, but the number of tasks may differ from country to country.
This company was founded in the year 2014. The founders of this company are Loren Bast, Patrick O’Donnell, Matt Bencke, Daryn Nakhuda and Matt Shobe. They changed the name to Mighty AI, and now, only the app is called Spare5.
In this review, we will see if this app is worth your time or not. There are too many apps out there that don’t pay enough and suffer from several issues. So, I recommend that you read this review completely.
How does Spare5 work?
You need to follow certain steps to start earning through the website or their app. First of all, they will ask you to go through a welcome survey. The survey will ask you basic questions like your gender or your marital status. You might have already answered such questions before if you have an account on a survey or a GPT website. You will get $0.10 after completing the survey.
After doing the welcome survey, you will see a lot of tutorial tasks on the main page. You need to do the tutorials to access paid tasks. The more tutorials you do successfully, the more tasks you can have for earning money. After you do a tutorial, you will have to pass a qualifier to get access to paid tasks. You can retake the qualifier if you fail after 48 hours or almost immediately.
The tutorials will teach you different skills like placing points, bounding boxes, drawing eclipses, drawing lines and much more. I know that you are curious about what sort of tasks you will be doing by using these skills.
You will be doing tasks that will help computers recognize objects and images so that they can work better. They have some big clients, so you can expect a good number of tasks, especially if you are from an English-speaking country.
The tasks are reviewed by the community and their team after you do them. It is important to do the tasks with a high level of accuracy. The tasks have instructions that you should read and follow completely. If you rush through the instructions or the task, then you can end up not getting paid for it. If you fail to do too many tasks in the right manner, then they will stop sending you tasks. You won’t be able to earn anything from this website in that scenario.
On the other hand, people who do the tasks really well will receive advanced tasks that will pay more money. They won’t have any issues in getting paid for the tasks and earn more than others. So, I highly recommend that you take your time and do the tasks well. It is not difficult to do most tasks if you focus. If you are having too many issues while doing a task, then you can avoid it and do some other task.
It is not very time-consuming to do the tutorials and qualifiers. You can get started quickly and end up earning money on your first day. Once you have $1, they will pay you the money in your PayPal account. The payouts are issued each week, and they only have PayPal as the payment method at the moment.
If you can’t make a PayPal account for some reason, then you shouldn’t work on this website.
They have a good reputation and always pay on time. You can’t hope to earn much as the tasks are not hard or time-consuming. Sometimes, there may not be any tasks available, but you can login later to see if the tasks have become available.
The website has more tasks than the app, so it would be a good idea to use the website to work. Just remember that some tasks are only available for mobile phone users.
How much does it cost to join?
It is free to make an account and use the app. You can even login through Facebook or other methods to make it easier. None of the tasks require you to pay any money. So, you can basically earn from the website or the app for free.
How much can I earn?
Your earnings depend on your country as well as your ability to do the tasks. People who are from English-speaking countries and do the tasks well will earn more than people in other countries. The number of tasks that are available will also play a role in your earnings. If you have an iPhone, then you can earn more than someone who doesn’t have an iPhone.
In most cases, the earnings won’t be much. I don’t think that anyone can expect to earn a full-time income through the app or the website. It is completely out of the question as the pay is not enough, and there aren’t enough tasks either.
However, it is certainly possible to make a side income that can help you pay some bills. Maybe, you can pay 20% of your electricity bill through the income that you earn from this website.
I think that you can expect to earn in the range of $30 to $50 per month if you are active and belong to an English-speaking country. The earnings would be a little lower if you are from a non-English speaking country. Keep in mind that a lot of people end up earning a few dollars per month through the website. So, you can’t have very high expectations from this one.
Are there any complaints?
Yes, I have listed some complaints below.
I rarely get tasks.
The rules and tasks are easy, but after some time, the tasks become harder to do.
Spare5 is not a scam in my opinion. I think that they are certainly worth trying, but you need to have some realistic expectations. You will not be earning a lot to be honest, and you can earn more through other ways. However, this is worth it for those people who are fine with making some money in their free time. The final decision is yours. Good luck.
