We are already constantly on our phones keeping up with text messages and a vast bombardment of emails. You might as well get paid for this, and that’s what we cover in this FreeEats review.

Get paid for receiving and reading text messages – nothing else.

What Is Free Eats?

To put it simply, Free Eats is a mobile phone network that pays you to view text messages. These text messages contain advertisements and surveys from their clients, as well as surveys from Companies are willing to pay big dollars for advertising. Free Eats works as a middleman as a way for these advertisements to reach out to the market.

freeeats review freeeats.comBy signing-up for the program, you are getting a percentage of what the advertiser pays to Free Eats. You get paid to view content on your mobile device, without the need to ever click on any links or complete any surveys. Just make sure to open your text message in order for it to be counted.

Free Eats currently doesn’t charge anything for you to be a part of their mobile phone network and registration is 100% free.

How Do I Sign-Up And Start Making Money?

Free Eats takes only a second to sign-up for, and here we’ve outlined the steps.

1. First go to Register your information in the form that’s found at the bottom of the page. This includes some basic information as well as your phone number.
2. You will be sent a verification text with a link that you will need to click in order to verify your account.

Free Eats requires that you have a PayPal account in order to be paid. The amount you can make really depends on the location.

I currently live in Spokane, Washington and out of the past 2 months I’ve only received 2 texts and thus 2 payments. However, there have been reports of people being signed-up in New York and made $4.50 their first week.

You automatically get $1.00 for signing-up and 25 cents for every text thereafter. The maximum amount of texts you will receive per day is 2.

If you complete one of the surveys that they send you, you will be awarded cash as well, but the amount depends on the survey. They are usually short and pay out an additional 25 cents for completing them.

The best thing about Free Eats is that they pay you within 24 hours regardless of the amount in your account. I only had 25 cents in my account at one point and they still paid me.

If you want to earn additional money, have your friends and family and sign-up for the program and get them to read the text messages. You can link up to 10 emails per PayPal account. If you’re friends don’t mind helping you out, go ahead and ask them.

The only charges you might incur are standard text messaging rates. If you have a pay-to-go phone, it would be a wise idea to check how much each text message costs you. If it’s over 25 cents per text, Free Eats may not be for you. However, with the way phone services have changed over the years, most plans come with unlimited texts, so this will most likely not be a concern.


Free Eats by no means will make you rich alone, but is a great way to start by building your wealth. It doesn’t hurt that you can earn enough money to pay for an extra meal or two per month by taking a few seconds to open and read a text message.

Sorry for the late response. That’s really odd that your phone number can’t be registered. It could be because of the area that you live in. I would try messaging their support directly. If that doesn’t work, try creating a Google voice number. Let me know how that works out.

I am a US resident, and the phone i’m using can receive short code sms messages. I’m vissitting my brother in canada and using my brothers phone to register because my plan doesn’t cover canada only the US, his number has a (705) area code, does it need to be a US area code. Also what Mobile Carriage’s do they cover, do they cover fido? Last question is how long after you register does it normally take to receive the money to your paypal????? thanks please get back to me asap

As far as I’m concerned, it needs to be a US number. However, you can always email the FreeEats support team and ask them. Lastly, once you receive a text, you’re going to get your payment within 2 minutes… it’s that quick. I would recommend using whichever phone number has the area code linked to a bigger city. That way you’re more likely to receive more texts and thus more cash. I hope this helps.

I’ve tried signore up before and it sent me a txt message to confirm it and I never did and I deleted the txt bt I still want to use my same number is there anyway I still can?

I’ve been trying to do referrals from my Facebook and its says that I can’t share to be able to put my referrals on there I’ve also contacted them and no response in 3 days any information will be helpful thanks

Free Eats hasn’t been working for me either lately. I haven’t heard from them in 2 months, so they might be shut down. You can always just try to copy and paste your referral code on Facebook.

I signed up for this several weeks ago, i got 1 email and then they stopped, can u tell me why cause im still interested in this.


Please help. I have created a freeeats account and got paid through paypal and all was great. I then bought a phone to refer myself which is completely legit, but when I clicked on my original link to refer myself and entered my the phone number of the new phone I bought, it told me to wait for the confirmation link. I have been waiting for three days and have not received anything. I emailed them and haven’t received a response yet. Do they have a phone number that I can call or something. This is getting really annoying.

i have just got an email today for the first time in a long time saying thank you for
