Frequently Asked Questions


How much is each point worth?

100 points = $1 USD.


Why am I being paid to apply for jobs?

Employers pay us money every time that you apply for jobs on this website. Indeed and LinkedIn make money the same way. The difference is that we give you a large cut of the money that we receive from employers. Jobs that pay more for applying are not better or worse than jobs that pay less. Millions of jobs pay at least $1 in cash back for applying and we've paid out over $30,000 to job seekers to date.


How do I get paid?

We support many different ways to cash out! We support payments via Cash App, Venmo, PayPal, Bank Transfer, or you can choose from hundreds of gift cards. Cash outs via Cash App, Venmo, PayPal, and Bank Transfer incur a $1.75 processing fee. Select how you would like to be paid here . You can change how you would like to be paid at any time.


How do I cash out?

Whenever you are ready to cash out, head here . It is important to know that we only pay users that have applied for at least 3 jobs all-time and have verified their identity. You can cash out manually at most once per day.


How long does it take to receive my earnings?

Once you manually cash out here we initiate your payout for processing. Processing a payout takes 3 days. During this 3 day period, we analyze your account to make sure that you are actually looking for a job, applying for good-fit jobs, and being responsive to employers.


How do we track your job applications?

We ask you to connect your Google-powered email account (ex. Gmail, Google for Business). Use this email address in your job applications to earn our cash back rewards and to track your job applications.

Why do I have to verify my identity? How do I do that?

We need to verify that you are who you say you are because we send job seekers money, automatically. This helps us reduce fraud and maintain a high-quality job seeker user base. The process for verifying your identity is really simple. Once you are eligible to cash out, we will prompt you to verify your identity. To verify, all you have to do is take a selfie picture and a picture of your government-issued photo ID. If you would like to verify your identity now, you can click here .


When I apply for multiple jobs at the same company, why am I only getting points for one of the job applications?

You are welcome to apply for as many good-fit roles that an employer posts, but you will only earn cash back for the first role that you apply for from a given employer. We plan to give cash back for applies to multiple jobs from the same employer, but do not support that at this time.


I applied to some jobs but my cash back hasn't changed. Why is that?

When you submit a job application, Hire Rewards may not immediately register that you have applied. It can take some time for the employer to register that you applied. If you have received a job submission confirmation email from an employer more than 24 hours ago, but it has not yet shown up as applied to on the Hire Rewards website, feel free to fill out this form to report it to us.


How much can I earn?

You can earn a maximum of $20 per day, $50 per week, $100 per month, and $600 per year. However, when signing up, you agreed to only apply for jobs that you are genuinely interested in and have the qualifications for. If you are applying to "bad fit" jobs just for the money, we will flag your account and shut it down.


When I am filling out a job application and have to choose where I heard about the job application, what should I select?

Employers like to get a sense of which online sites are driving the most traffic to their job application. If Hire Rewards is not in the job application “where you heard about this job” dropdown , then feel free to choose Google, Other, or whatever you feel is a good answer. This does not affect your ability to earn cash back for applying.
