MeshBean – Make Easy Money Downloading Apps

Want to Earn Some Extra Money?


So far we’ve introduced over 10 different apps that pay you to download other apps. MeshBean is no exception, giving you the chance to earn easy money doing easy things. All you have to do is download an app, open it for 30 seconds, and delete it from your phone. On Day 1 you can quickly earn $5 dollars.

What Is MeshBean?

MeshBean is a free rewards program that gives you the opportunity to download apps and be rewarded coins in the process. Once you earn enough coins, they can be exchanged for Google Play credit, an Apple Card, a deposit to PayPal, gift cards to large retailers, or a PrePaid Credit Card.

The reason MeshBean is willing to pay you is because developers need to find a way to promote their app. MeshBean acts as a middleman and tries to connect app developers with their users. Each time an app is downloaded, the developer pays MeshBean, and a portion of that money is awarded to you, the user.

The amount you can earn per app depends on the agreement that the developer has made with MeshBean. Obviously, the more they pay them, the more you earn. Signing-up is 100% free and is available for both iOS and Android devices.

If you’re going to be using an iPhone with MeshBean, instead of going directly to the Apple Store, you’re instead going to download it from the Safari Browser.

How Do I Sign-Up For MeshBean And Start Earning Cash?

Registering is very simple and can be done in 5 simple steps.

1. Download the app. You can download the MeshBean software by clicking this link here, whether you have an iOS or Android device. Just make sure to click on the appropriate link depending on what device you have. If you want, you can also scan a QR code. You can support FFL by using our referral link here. Thank you!

2. Install the app. Once you click on the appropriate link, install the app to your phone once the popup appears. Trust the software, as it is safe to download. You may get a warning that it’s from an untrusted app developer.

3. Register. You can register with MeshBean by signing-up either via Facebook or Google+.

4. Download apps. Once you register and log-in, you’ll notice a list of apps on the front screen that are available for download. The amount you can earn per each one is listed off to the right. Make sure that after you download to open the app for at least 30 seconds (even though I recommend 1 minute) in order to get credited.

5. Cash Out. You need a minimum of 5,000 points to cash out. You can cash out for gift cards to major retailers such as Amazon.

How Much Can I Make With MeshBean?

The amount you can earn with MeshBean depends on the amount of work that you’re willing to put in. The more apps you download, the more you’re going to make. We’re going to give you a rough estimate of what you can make.

1,000 points is equal to $1 dollar. When you first open the app, there should be enough offers to earn you a quick $5 dollars. All of the apps are free to download, but may require you to sign-up for a free-trial service. Just be sure to cancel before you are charged.

After your first time of going through all of the apps available, you probably will be getting 2-5 offers per day, meaning you can make an extra $.20 – $.50 cents per day on average. Just be sure to snag as many offers as you can before they disappear.

While it may not seem like much on a daily basis, it only takes a couple of minutes to go through each app. It should only take you about 10 minutes at most to earn that amount daily.

Although MeshBean states that you only need to open the app for 30 seconds in order to get credited, I recommend 1 – 2 minutes along with actually going through the app and trying to actually understand what it’s for, instead of simply using it to get money.

How Can I Earn Even More Cash?

MeshBean also has a referral program. For each friend you refer, they will get 100 bonus points and you will receive a % of the amount of points they earn. If you’d like to support FFL, you can use our referral link here. We’d greatly appreciate it!

Below is a chart based on how much you can earn referring your friends:

Final Thoughts

If you want a quick way to earn $5 dollars, MeshBean is the best way to go. Some people even report earning $10 dollars in the first two days, but after that the amount you can earn usually dies down.

If you’re interested in earning cash from downloading apps, we recommend the following:
