Earn free cash or vouchers for watching videos on your phone with GETJAM (not a scam!)

Found 25th May 2012
I originally found out about this on here a long time ago, but I haven't seen it posted in the past year or so and can't find any reference to it anywhere on hukd, so posting again for the benefit of those who have missed it in the past.

Go to getjam.mobi from your iphone, android or other smartphone, or a tablet or ipod touch - anything that can view videos really - click on the videos which are typically between about 20 seconds and 3 minutes, and then click 'done' to collect points('berries') afterwards.

Then convert your points into cash via Paypal or itunes vouchers or mobile topups. 300 berries gets you £2.50, and typically each video is worth 10 berries, so each video clip you watch is worth about 8.3p. You're not going to become a millionnaire overnight doing this, but I've been doing it regularly and had over £200 in Paypal cash from them in the past 18 months. Cash arrives in about a week into your Paypal (remember to choose the slow service or you're wasting your berries!)

You're only allowed one account per person (email address) and they allow two members per household (IP address), and you get an extra 50 berries for referring a friend (40-odd pence).

I remember there being a bit of doubt and the usual skepticism when this was posted last year, but I can say that the whole thing is legit - I've had every penny that I've 'earnt' with them and on the couple of occasions that I've had to contact their customer services they've been quick to reply.

There's also an iphone app, however I find it a bit slower to use so instead just use getjam.mobi on Safari. Additionally, when you're redeeming your points, you can only choose iTunes vouchers on the iPhone app (tho you can build them up and redeem on the .mobi site for cash).

REMEMBER to set up an account (only an email is required, no personal details) when you first use the service, and always make sure you're logged in, otherwise you may be accruing points that won't be accredited to your account.

Link takes you to their desktop site which has an explanation. Use the getjam.mobi site to actually do it on your phone. I'm happy to try to answer any questions anybody has about how it all works, but it's really simple once you've tried it.

Please don't vote Cold with some nonsense like 'its a scam' as it definitely isn't and although it's not going to make you a millionnaire, you can earn a decent amount of pocket money from it.


Congrats on your VIP badge!

Edit... some people have recently been experiencing problems in redeeming their berries. I've had mine with no problem, so won't expire as it still seems to be working fine for me. Also some people have had accounts cancelled for abuse (having too many accounts!) which we can't really blame them for. Just be aware of these factors - worth cashing in for smaller amounts rather than saving up, just in case.

*** LATEST NEWS 18 DEC 2012 ***

Recently received emails from Getjam apologising for recent poor service, which they say was due to them having a complete overhaul of their systems to combat fraud - apparently too many people have had too many multiple accounts, and now they're far better equipped to deal with it. So, looks like it's all go again, with other offers now online too to collect berries...the proof will be in the pudding!

I had this on my old phone, it takes ages - but they pay out
Why does "Not a scam!" immediately make me think it is a scam?

Sounds like a lot of messing about to me, but if that's your thing, suppose it's worth it.

If you have bother selecting the 'gender' field, try selecting the other gender - I had that problem in the iPhone app, but on the .mobi site it was fine.
Better than answering surveys
had trouble selecting gender, selected male instead. hopefully i can change it back..

Not very techie here - any suggestions on the add-on or how that would work? Do you mean something so that I could use a normal computer but the website would think I was using a mobile? Thanks!

It probably does sound like a lot of messing, but to be honest it's really simple. Once you've spent about 2 minutes getting an account and working out how it works, you have to do virtually nothing - I just sit my phone beside me while I'm watching TV or on the internet and click on the links. Some of the videos are actually quite good too!

They all work fine on my iphone/ipod, but I've got an android tablet and it does that sometimes on that - some work, others don't. Might be worth trying the mobile app if there is one for your type of phone? If I get time later I'll pop a list of the running times for the videos as some are longer than 3 mins but others are only 30 secs.

Chrome doesnt support flash must have been that. You need flash for some of the videos. I get about a tenner a month from this and that pays for my Spotify Premium

Thanks, now ive got this, topcashback, quidco, valuedopinions, justtheanswer and maximiles on the go. Every little helps!
is it actually worth the bother ?
I've had about £30 off these, but then that is over a long time and you do have to wait a) for new videos to appear (with berries for watching) b) for you to accumulate enough viewing to get 1200 berries and c) for them to (in my case) get more Amazon codes in stock for you to redeem (last time I had 1200 and had to wait about three weeks before I could 'cash' them in)
..oh yeah, watch over wi-fi, unless you wanna see your data allowence disappear
Just registered and played all videos on my iPad no problem, clicked through the offers too, ended up with 210 berries before trying referrals .

Quick question, how often do they add new content and do I have to keep checking every day ?

Thanks , seems to be a genuine, handy find

There are usually one or two added at various times through the day, and every so often you'll get a whole bunch of new ones. You'll often find that a video you've already watched several times has got new berries on it several days in a row.

Also check the 'get offers' bit as there are often a few on there - at the moment there are 3 or 4 on there offering points. You just need to click the link, then you can close the popup immediately if you want, and go straight to the next one.

The secret is to have several people in the household all doing it, then you can build up a decent amount of points in a fairly short time. And of course, refer each of your friends too for 50 extra berries!

a bit crap actually just viewed the mobile app, not many videos to watch, so that means it could take you ages to accumalate points.

Speaking of which.. I just tried to redeem my 1200 for a £10 Amazon voucher and got this message again..

We're sorry, there are no vouchers of this type available. Please try … We're sorry, there are no vouchers of this type available. Please try again later.

I downloaded the Android app on S2, works great and the videos load fast. Excellent find and money for practically nothing, thanks op!

Good stuff! Could easily just leave this on during class or when at home and just play videos while doing other things!

That's the one I originally found it on. Strange that I couldn't find it by searching the forum for 'getjam'. Lots of problems back then but since they changed the whole website I've not had any bother apart from the very occasional glitch.

Just be careful if not at home that you're on wifi or have a proper unlimited package as it'll eat up your data allowance very quickly otherwise - my rather clueless friend did loads on 3G while on holiday abroad...not pretty.
thanks it's worth a try x
How do they know if you're just starting the Video and then going off about your daily business and not watching it.. I was thinking this is probably a glitch in their system. Will you still get the points? oO

They used to have an even bigger glitch in their system as you could gain berries without even watching the videos in the early days (i.e. within seconds).

Not a single referral I clicked a link in the app giving me 50 for joining and watched everything in the get jam tab (which paid me) and then went to a couple sites through the offers tab and just loading the site gets you points, thats it oh and go on it once a day. The only videos I actually watched is the pot noodle ones the rest I press play and find something else to do,
This does indeed payout. I did it a year or so ago. Im as skint as ever so im jump back in.

It use to run on mobile numbers only. and i got about 30 quid outta it off a few sim cards.
Thanks op. Looks good,... tried it on my Android phone.. got 235 points so far since registering about an hour ago !
call me thick, but where's the refer a friend bit?
Anyone else have a problem with inviting others? Says they have already been invited but its my own email? haha
