Locately App Review | Paid 3 Times

Earn Gift Cards For Taking Surveys

Locately is an app that pays you to take short surveys. Locately runs on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, and collects GPS data about where you visit in order to provide you with relevant surveys. All of the surveys I’ve taken have been only a couple of minutes in length making them more like polls than surveys. I have been using Locately for about 5 months now and I have earned a $10.00 Amazon Gift card so far.


Locately Has Been Moved To The Graveyard

As of  May 21, 2014 I have been paid a total of 3 times with total earnings of $30.00.


How Locately Works

What You Can Earn

With Locately you Earn points that are equal to a penny each toward gift cards. Currently there are $10.00 Amazon Gift Cards, $10.00 Starbucks Gift Cards, and $15.00 iTunes Gift Cards available.

When You sign up for Locately you give them permission to monitor your shopping and driving habits and to receive GPS information about places you visit. They also monitor battery life information. In exchange for monitoring these things they pay you about 1 point per day.

Depending on where you go you can be offered different surveys that are mostly about your most recent shopping trips to places like Walmart, Target, or Best Buy.  Most surveys that I have received take only a couple of minutes and have paid about 25-35 points. It looks like they might have bigger earning opportunities by invitation sometimes but I have not participated in any.

Cashing out

Once you earn enough for the gift card of your choice you cash out by pushing on reward points in the app. After you cash out they require you to verify your email address before receiving your gift card. It takes a few days to go through the whole process.


Helpful Tips

  • Be sure to check the app often to see if you have any surveys available especially if you have visited any major retailers or malls.
  • If you don’t want to have your location monitored you can turn off the location services for 2 hours or deactivate your account.
  • You must be 18 or older in order to use this app.
  • Using Locately will drain your battery faster, make sure to account for that.
