Passively Earning with CheckPoints


CheckPoints is one of the applications I use to earn extra money. I am in the US and this application really works and I have been redeeming gift cards with this application. I am not sure if this is available in any other countries.


How I Earn:

I use 2 ways to earn on CheckPoints.

1.) I watch movie trailers. Watching movie trailers will earn you points which you can use to get Amazon gift cards. This is the most passive way. The videos should play continuously and should play advertisements in between. I think you can use a maximum of 10 devices for a single account in one household running videos at the same time with CheckPoints. This is my main way to earn points. CheckPoints in my opinion has the most stable watch to earn section in all applications that I use in a sense that it does not crash very often. However, CheckPoints also has a very slow earning potential per day.

2.) I check-in to places near me. You do not have to go to the place to check-in, you just need to be near the place. (Note: You need to turn on your device location for this to work.) Each check-in will give you 2 points. I think you can only have a maximum of 6 check-ins in a day (a total of 12 points). You also need to wait at least a minute in between check-ins for it to be valid. I live in a rural town so I only get 1 to 2 places to check-in. If you are in the city you get a lot of places to check-in and can easily get to the maximum check-in points in a day easily. There are also automatic check-ins that are worth 20 points each if you walk in certain stores. I usually get the automatic check-in when I enter Walmart.

Another way to earn is to scan bar codes of specific items from specific stores that are listed in the application. I do not earn via this method, it is too tedious and I always forget to check my phone when I shop.


Checkpoints has one of the fastest cashouts in all the applications that I use. I usually just cash out 335 points to get a free $1 Amazon gift card. You will then receive an email of your gift card instantly in your inbox. I just copy the Amazon gift card code and paste it in my Amazon account (redeem gift card section).

April 2019: It has been a while since I updated this blog post. The watch section of the app has gone dead. I consistently watch trailers but there’s just no points added and I think it is due to the ads. The app hasn’t been showing me ads anymore. Now I only earn mainly from the store check-ins.
