Curious Cat is a paid survey app, that allows you to make real cash from sharing your thoughts and opinions. You can make money from the comfort of your own home, on your daily commute or even when you’re on the toilet! You answer surveys on your phone in exchange for points, which can then be redeemed via PayPal.  


1 point is equivalent to 1 penny, which may not sound a lot however you can build up your total relatively quickly, and you can cash out once you’ve reached £1. 

You will need to set up a free PayPal account to receive your balance, if you don’t already have one. Using PayPal, you can transfer your earnings into your bank account and it is an instant transfer. 

It’s not uncommon to find surveys that can earn you between 50 and 100 points (£0.50 to £1.00).

Once you have cashed out, the company name will show in PayPal as ‘On Device Research’.


Curious Cat is available on both iPhone and Android. There are a few other apps with the same name, so make sure you don’t download the wrong app by mistake!

You can earn points from the app straight away, just by filling in some basic details about yourself. Once you have set up your account, the home screen in the app brings up any surveys that you may be eligible for. The app shows how many points you can earn from each survey before you start it. 

You will need internet connection to use the app and complete surveys, as you will be redirected to survey partners.


I think the app is a great way to make some extra money in your spare time, granted, you’re not going to get rich overnight from using it, but it’s good to have some additional spending money. 

There were always a couple of surveys available whenever I checked the app, and the points were added to my account straight away once I had completed the surveys. I was able to cash out my first payment on the app in a few days, and I have heard the same from lots of other people who have used it. 

Along with Swagbucks, it has quickly turned into one of my favourite survey sites to use. 

I would definitely recommend the app if you are looking for new ways to side hustle and make extra income!
