Mobile Performance Meter is the app that sends you gift cards for doing nothing but using your phone
Mobile Performance Meter is an app available from the Google Play Store. The app collects some information from your handset (more on that below), although you do not give out personal information. Each day that you have the meter running is worth 20 points to you and other surveys can score you an extra 150 points. Earn enough points and you can redeem them for a gift card from a number of retailers including Sears, Papa John's, Overstock.com, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and many more. The gift cards start at $5 (500 meter points) and go as high as $100 (for 10,000 meter points)

New users get a 100 point reward, and you are asked to complete at least one survey a month. The app is not available in every state, but some more have just been added. If you've been turned down before, you might want to try it again.


In this skeptical and cynical age we live in, especially in light of the NSA scandal, it will be interesting to see how many people are willing to install the app. So far, that number is between 50,000 and 100,000. Embee Mobile, the developer of the app, is collecting information for the Nielsen Company, an extremely legitimate firm that is known for its weekly television ratings. Apparently, Nielsen is interested in the quality of voice and data services on your phone.

If you're interested in earning gift cards for doing nothing different with your phone than what you've always done with it, you can find the app in the Google Play Store.

Judging from the retailers, I can safely conclude that this is not for my country

This could be just NSAs front. I'm not falling for this, keep your meter points.

Well if they gave a crap about you they'd already be watching you. Why fight it? I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.

scam? 10,000 points for =$100 gift card BUT 20 points a day is 365*20=7,300 plus surveys 150 points * 12 months = 1,800 thats 9,100 points total you can earn in a year.

Nope this app is for real. I have had this app on my phone since 2/3/16 and have gotten $40 in free gift cards for Amazon. You also get 200 points for every person you refer and they install the app. Even if it was $10 a year....it's more than you're getting now!!

No disrespect intended but NSA is already monitoring your phone. There is nothing you can do to stop it and if you aren't doing anything of concern, what do you give a crap for. I have had this app on my phone since 2/3/16 and have gotten $40 in free gift cards. So, even of this is just another way for them to monitor my phone, I don't give a hoot. See I'm the smarter one here....either way NSA is monitoring us, but you are letting them do it for free. At least I am getting paid for it. Stop being so fricken paranoid.

Lol. Well here goes nothing. I signed up with my AT&T and T-Mobile phones. I'm aiming to get a bunch of Amazon gift cards to buy more phone accessories. My phones can work to pay for their own accessories! Get a job hippy phone!

Besides the absurd permissions to reroute outgoing calls and receiving text, it's at least a battery hog for requiring precise GPS location and preventing sleep mode. I'd skip the lentil soup...

If I could make $50 a month I'd consider it. How about if my phone service wants the info that bad they just credit my account and I'll fill out a survey on how bad they suck from time to time?

I have the Mobile performance Meter installed on my phone and it is extremely easy. I 've been having it since Dec. 2013, and when school started up I had 5,000pts. which I traded for a $50 Foot Locker gift card, no scams or tricks. I actually used the gift card and bought my daughter some Jordan's on Tax Free weekend that were on sale for $50 and I didn't have to spend a dime. All you do is fill out a 5min. survey once a month and that's all you don't have to do anything except use your phone as normal and accumulate points 20pts a day and 150pts for monthly surveys. Easy as pie you really should try it. You can either print the gift card up or use it from your phone they can scan the barcode from your phone so no paper to keep up with. They have a bunch of stores you can get gift cards from including restaurants. Every 1000pts is $10.
