    Hi all, just seen an offer through Inbox Pounds for this site. Does anyone have any experience of it at all? It's just that an offer of a £5 AGC just for being active for a week sounds a little too easy! Thanx : )

    Just seen same offer - and it seems there is little extra info available.

    There's an old thread here (http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=1503927&highlight=mobilexpression) which seems to refer to the same outfit, but it's clearly very out of date (2009) and so this new offer is presumably a relaunch.

    Will try it on one of our family smartphones and see what happens...

    Well, it seems to have worked - a £5 Amazon Voucher received.

    They give you points periodically (maybe one each week, not quite sure of the period) - you can exchange these for £5 Amazon vouchers when you have 10 points.

    So, in the first week I got 1 point - a tenth of the way. And this week a second point - two tenths.

    But today (about 10 days after sign-up) I got the sign-up bonus of an extra 10 points - which I exchanged for an Amazon Voucher, leaving me with the 'normal' two points towards the next one.

    Points are only accrued if their app is 'active' - and it's not clear what, exactly, it is doing, so this probably isn't suitable for you if you are wary of snooping software!

    And, as far as I can tell so far, the points have to be actively claimed each time - they send you an email prompting you. I assume that if you don't respond to that email you don't get that period's point.

    So - £5 sign-up bonus seems to work - can't yet tell what long-term potential or pitfalls might be.

    Edited to add: Should add that I signed up via InstaGC, not Inboxpounds, as InstaGC's points added up to an instant £1 Amazon Voucher - so I'm up £6 in Amazon via this so far.

    Yes, Very similar to Nielsen, though it looks less profitable (I think Nielsen adds up to £50 per year but this looks more like about £25). And similar to the old MobileTrends/OnDevice scheme that's now finished (which used to be £60 pa!).

    Sorry for dragging up an old thread but seems more suitable than posting in Swagbucks etc.

    This week I have not had the message to redeem credit, and trying to click on the app to go on the link my credits appear but no button to redeem this week's credit.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Sometimes, I find that it jumps a day here and there. If there is a problem with your account, they contact you with a link to click.

    I know a number of people with this app, all saying the same. They haven't been credited for this week. Hope they aren't going under.

    I deleted it last week after getting my last credit for a voucher.
    It sometimes lags indeed so I don't think world is falling apart yet :P

    Their support is generally quick to answer queries so I'd drop an e-mail.
    £2015 in 2015 / £2015

    No buying unnecessary stuff.
    Clearing out by selling on Ebay, donating to charity etc.

    I got a reply from support yesterday, they gave me the point this week and I redeemed the £10. It seems like they should post this to my house as they asked my address?

    Anyhoo I will check my email to see if they email it.

    How long does the email take to arrive?
