EarnHoney is a relatively new make money online company that has been launched in September 2014. However, tons of people have joined their sites and cashing out money. The website claims that you can earn 3x faster on EarnHoney than any other rewards site.

Is that true? Can you really earn good money? Is EarnHoney a scam or should you join right away?

In this article, I’m gonna show you how the exact strategy that some people are using to make up to $300 per month on EarnHoney. In addition, I will also tell you why I don’t use that strategy myself. Let’s get started!

EarnHoney Review

Name: EarnHoney

Founded: September 2014

Type: Get-Paid-To Sites

Short Review: EarnHoney is a typical get-paid-to site where you can earn money by accomplishing tasks. If you have 10 phones that can watch their videos on autopilot, then this website could be worth it. If not, I just recommend taking a look at a better way to earn money online which I use myself to make a living.

What Is EarnHoney?

EarnHoney is a similar page like Swagbucks, PrizeRebel, and many other get-paid-to sites. You have probably tried some of them in the past. The idea behind these sites go like this:

You finish some tasks (for example watching videos) and the website pays you a little reward for each activity. The reason that the company can pay you money is that they earn even more money from their advertisers.

In this post, you’ll also find a video that I recorded about EarnHoney. In the video, I explain the strategy that some people use to earn up to $2,000 per month using smartphone apps.

How to Make Money with EarnHoney?

There are at least 5 different ways to earn money on EarnHoney. Let’s go through them one by one.

1) Videos

This is probably the most interesting way to earn money on this website. You get paid for watching short videos and ads. However, you don’t need to actively watch them because you can leave the device in the background while you are doing other tasks.

Before each video, they show an ad and then a video will play. Ad lasts maximum 30 seconds and the video is around 1 minute long.

If you run videos on one device (phone, tablet or PC) you can earn 1-2$ per day which isn’t very much. The only way to earn more is if you have more devices like I showed in the video.

2) Surveys

We have reviewed probably already more than 70-80 survey sites on If you have read any of those articles, you know that online surveys are not worth it.

On EarnHoney you can earn $0,10-0,80 for surveys so it’s really not worth the time. In addition, there are not many surveys available. You can fill out a few per day and that’s it.

3) Games

You can earn $0,15 per hour for playing games like 2048. I don’t recommend it. Playing games like this doesn’t really make you closer to your life goals.

4) Refer Friends

You will earn 10% of all earnings that your referrals earn. Usually, the most profitable way of earning money from sites like EarnHoney is to have lots of referrals making money for you.

I know some guys who have a big audience and they promoted get paid to sites on their websites and YouTube channels and nowadays they make thousands of dollars passive income from their referrals. However, the cost is that thousands of people are wasting their life on those apps at the moment.

5) Other Offers

EarnHoney has several partners that have offers on their site. One of them is PeanutLabs which is a partner of many of these websites. However, it seems that there are rarely offers available. Even though there would be the rewards are so small that it isn’t worth it to check it out often.

How Much Can You Really Earn on EarnHoney?

Here is a video where I explain the real earning potential of EarnHoney.

You can earn maximum $10 per day if you are using it on one device and you are actively completing their offers. However, if you have 70 phones like the guys in the video, you have a potential to earn passive income with this app.

$2,000 per month using smartphone apps sounds good and it definitely beats a boring 9 to 5 job. On the other hand, it’s nothing compared to the earning potential what you have with affiliate marketing. Many of my friends are making +$10,000 per month even while they are traveling the world. I still have to work hard to achieve that $10,000/month mark but I’m sure I will get there sooner or later.

EarnHoney Payments

Once you have reached your cash out limit $5 (=500 honey dollars) you can take the money out. They will pay you with gift cards to Amazon or to other online stores. Or by cash through PayPal. You can decide.

Anyhow, the great thing is that you can earn real money because they pay through PayPal

EarnHoney Reviews & Complaints

is earnhoney a scam
EarnHoney is a BBB (Better Business Bureau) accredited company and their rating is A+ which is the best one possible.

I’ve read and watched tons of reviews of EarnHoney to get a better understanding of their website and whether I should start using it or not.

Most people admitted that they earning potential is so low that you shouldn’t use it if you don’t have several devices that you can use for watching their videos.

In addition, some people got banned for running too many devices at the same time on EarnHoney. I wouldn’t like to end up in a situation where I buy 50 phones to earn money by watching videos on EarnHoney and then get banned.

Some members also reported about technical issues when using EarnHoney. The system collapsed when they were doing a task and they needed to restart the website. This also happened to me when I was trying out their website.

It’s obvious that if you are just trying to complete EarnHoney offers, this website is not worth it. But the more interesting questions is whether a$2,000/Month Strategy using smartphone apps strategy is worth it or not? Let me give you my analysis.

Is $2,000/Month Strategy Worth It?

is earnhoney a scam
This set up could make you $2,000 per month passive income. The other question is whether it’s worth it or not.

First of all, you would need to buy at least 70 phones/tablets/PCs. Let’s say each one costs $50 which is, of course in the lower end. 70*$50 equals to $3,500. Then you need to buy cables, chargers and all the other stuff. Let’s say that this costs $25-30 per one device making it around $2,000 in total. Then the electricity costs at least $30 per month (of course depending on where you are living).

There are at least 5 reasons why I don’t want to go for it.

1) Initial investments are higher than with affiliate marketing

When you start out with 70 phones, you have already invested $5,500 and $30 running costs each month. You would need to use several months to make it profitable.

2) You need to set up all devices which take lots of time. 

Let’s say that it takes 45 minutes per device until you have downloaded all necessary apps and it’s running on autopilot. Notice that you need to get it from the box, plug it in and do other stuff until it’s running.

45 minutes * 70 => 52,5 hours. So you could theoretically set up all phones in a week. Notice that you need to add all chargers, wires and other stuff which also takes time so you would be working at least 2 full work weeks which is at least $2,000 in money if you would use the same time on working in an average job.

3) Traveling isn’t really possible if you want to earn money with this strategy

You have all devices in the same place. You need to monitor them every now and then to see that everything works well. You can’t pack 70 phones and chargers in your backpack and go traveling the world. On the other hand, with affiliate marketing, you can work wherever you want and everything you need is a laptop.

4) Income isn’t completely passive

You need to use some time to make it run anyway:

  1. Check that all apps are running and making money.
  2. Cash out the money when you have earned enough.
  3. Buy a new phone if some of them break down.

5) You are kinda tricking the system

Did these guys create these apps so that somebody could buy 70 phones and run them on autopilot to run them dry? No, they didn’t. If everyone would be using the system like this, it would collapse over the time course because the advertisers wouldn’t be earning anything from app users.

Even though it could be legal to make money with this strategy it’s still a little bit of a gray area. I don’t know what those app creators think when they see these guys setting up 70 phone on the autopilot.

Conclusion: Affiliate Marketing 1 –  Smartphone Apps 0

The guy who makes YouTube videos showing his smartphones and how they make him money earns most likely much more money with affiliate marketing than with his system. He has already millions of views on his YouTube channel and in the description of every video, he has tons of affiliate links.

He earns money when people sign up to these apps and play them and when they buy stuff on Amazon through his links. After all, we come to a conclusion that even he is earning much more with affiliate marketing. So why would we try to set up the same system like him?

By Roope Kiuttu

Hello! I am Roope "Robert" Kiuttu, the founder and owner of I created this website back in 2015 to help you to make money online. You can ask me anything and I'll be happy to help you out. I help people daily to make more money online and I love seeing people succeeding. If you want to get my 1-on-1 support and help to make money online as well, get started HERE.


  1. Your insightful feedback and detailed reviews really amazes me to no end. I can’t afford to get myself 5 or more smart phones so I guess the strategy of using multiple devices is not for me. Although, I think it will definitely work for internet cafe owners which is a common line of business here in the Philippines.

    I also think spending an hour of your life playing a game you don’t even like just to earn $0.15 is worth it. Overall, I must say that EarnHoney is still a bit better compared to those generic online survey sites that pay very little.

    1. Hi John,

      I’m glad to hear that you enjoy my reviews. I’ll be publishing new content regularly. I enjoy doing this and I’m more than happy when I hear that my articles are helpful.

      For filipinos, I could recommend Fiverr, iWriter, UpWork or other freelance platform for earning money online.

      Of course, my #1 recommendation is WA but if I heard somewhere the free account is not available in your country. In my opinion, the premium account is definitely worth every penny. But I know that all filipinos don’t have that money right away.

  2. I think earning money online by doing same simple task like watching videos or taking survey is a good thing although is not that much of money like doing a actual job/work its also great as a part time job while taking a break or just surfing to the internet.

    1. Hi Derick,

      it’s interesting that you think so.

      Wouldn’t you like to earn 10-100 times more by doing much more interesting tasks than watching videos or taking surveys? I bet you would.

      In my experience the reason that people like survey or “get-paid-to” sites is that they don’t know about more profitable ways to earn money online.

      Those who learned other ways to make money, said that surveys and watching videos are just a waste of time.

  3. Watching videos on the different devices are very strategic to earn more money but you have to be careful not to get banned on the site.Let’s get that right if you have 50 PC and each of those can earn about $1-$2 per day multiplied by 50 then you can approximately about $200 per month just by watching videos. Sounds very good to me. I’m gonna try to register about the site.

    1. Hi Jogoy,

      yeah, $200 per month in the Philippines is definitely better than in the western Europe. $1,000 per month, for example in Finland (my home country is just peanuts) but in the Philippines is a great salary.

      However, I would recommend that you try more profitable services than EarnHoney.

  4. Huge thanks for posting this! It was very educational and useful. It’s very easy to get sucked in into such sites without even knowing what their real offers and opportunities are. I really enjoyed the video you posted too. Overall, thank you very much and good luck with your future stuff and posts.

    1. Hi Jurica,

      I’m more than happy to hear that you enjoyed the post. You are right that it’s very easy to get sucked into these offers. They make it so good.

      Even though I have researched more than 300 make money online opportunities I sometimes still get interested in a program and realize after a while that it isn’t worth it. Anyway, I enjoy researching new programs because I always learn something new and some of them are actually good and I can start using also myself.

    1. I don’t know about virtual machines but you can manually set up the videos so they’ll run 24/7. Maybe it’s also possible to code a program that could make it automatically. Anyway, I think it goes against the rules of EarnHoney or other similar apps.

  5. Well, the stress is too much, it’s clearly not worth it, i think the video idea is cool, with much device setup but i don’t think anyone can go through that, like setting up 70devices, sounds ridiculous, but it’s a cool idea, if you have up to 70 devices at your disposal.

    1. Hi Decypher,

      actually, some people are using that strategy of 70 devices. Then they are teaching on YouTube and on their website how you can do it as well. However, I think it’s not the optimal way to earn money. It’s also a little bit in the gray area.

  6. I’ve seen this site being advertised on some of my other favorite sites and unfortunately I found out it’s not available in my country so I can’t even test it out myself or participate.

    Thankfully you have put up your own review so I could at least know what I am missing. It seems like the best way is to farm video views by using multiple devices, but I think that sort of investment is not too advisable in a site like this since they can just change their terms or systems and your dozen or so phones would be useless and you would have paid a lot without getting much back.

    Otherwise, I think you can also earn on programs like this with a lot of referrals, but that’s true for many other sites too.

    1. Good points. Buying 70 phones would be a little bit risky if EarnHoney and other similar apps change their rules. Then you end up with 70 phones and you need to spend lots of time trying to sell them further.

      Yeah, you can earn money on EarnHoney with referrals. However, I think there are way better referral programs out there. I like to refer people to sites and services that I use myself 🙂

  7. Playing games whole day doesn`t help me pay my monthly bills, but after I read this website It makes me realize that there still much more I gonna do rather than play games and doing Facebook whole day.

    Thanks for the informative Article

    I hope you guys will try it out.

    1. Yeah, there are tons of cool things you can do on the Internet. You can contribute to the world and make a living at the same time. Some people would call it “easy money” because you don’t need to go to a formal 9 to 5 job. Well, earning money online can be “easier” but it also requires lots of work in the beginning.

  8. That passive income seems just unreal, but as you stated, it’s not that “passive”. I think this doesn’t worth the hassle.

  9. First of all, I truly appreciate your thorough explanation about EarnHoney. Every pros and cons are well stated. It is indeed a great article to read.

    I’ve never tried EarnHoney, but because of your terrific review, I don’t think I’ll consider this as a way to earn money online. It is not worth it. I strongly agree when you said using your referral code is a good way to earn money from this site. Though it will only happen if you have a big audience to use your code.

    I don’t want to spend $5000+ as an initial investment to buy 70 phones just to generate a bigger amount of income. It’s ridiculous. And it costs too much.

    Thanks for giving us an informative piece of content about this website.

    1. Thanks for your positive feedback. I appreciate it.

      Yeah, EarnHoney isn’t worth it for a normal use. It could only be theoretically worth it with that “70 phones” strategy but it’s also kinda cheating. Better just to stick to real ways of earning money online that provide real value for other people.

  10. It’s definitely not worth the hassle. I think that watching videos for just 1-2$ a day damages your device because it’s working non-stop and it’s a very low amount of money for the work.
    Also, just 15 cents/h on gaming it’s really low as well.

    1. You are right that playing videos on your computer or phone 24/7 takes a big capacity. I heard from a guy who does it with 70 phones that he often needs to buy new ones because at some point the phone just breaks anyway.

  11. I don´t think there is any way to actually make decent money from this site other than as a time-killer during commutes or waiting in line.

    It is nice to have a few similar sites set up to where when you have 5 mins free, you check in, ´watch´ the video and then move onto a different site that has a similar thing. I use these sites mainly as a way to get $20 per month basically just in my time that is otherwise wasted throughout the day.

    Also, if you have something where you have an audience, obviously good money can be made by having a few dozen people under your referral system. But as mentioned in this article, be honest and don´t sell the site as a way to make thousands per month.

    1. Hi Petesede,

      that’s an interesting strategy to make some extra money. I have usually headphones with me wherever I go so when I have extra time while walking or waiting for something, I can always listen to a teaching or an audio book. $20 isn’t still anything very significant because you can earn it in an hour or so by doing some real job. Probably that’s why I think I don’t want to spread my energy on these GPT sites.

  12. I have never heard about EarnHoney. Now that I read this honest review, I would never join EarnHoney. Money making opportunities on this site do not attract me.

    I am not fond of watching videos, because of location surveys are not available to me, I don’t enjoy playing tedious games to earn few cents, and I am not good enough to generate leads, thus I am no good with the affiliate. marketing.

    1. Hi Vinaya,

      as I always say, I am 100% sure that you will learn affiliate marketing and generating leads. If I can do it, you can do it as well.

      You don’t even need to be good with generating leads. If you have 1,000 every day coming to your website, you don’t even need to be convincing because some of them will buy your offers anyway. The next question is how will you get 1,000 visitors per day? Follow Wealthy Affiliate step-by-step training and you’ll reach that and much more.

  13. $0.15 for an hour of gaming doesn’t sound good at all, to be honest, but the idea of watching videos is quite interesting, especially since you don’t actually have to watch the advertisements.

    I might register and try it out to be fair because my computer is pretty much turned on for most of the day, so it won’t be much to just have the site open in a new tab. As much as $1 or $2 per day sounds awful, it’s decent for not having to do anything.

    1. Hi Kingcool,

      yeah, $1-2 for doing nothing is okay but I’m not gonna spend my time on it. The app still takes the capacity of the computer and my time to set it up.

      Some people tried to use too many devices on EarnHoney and they got banned after a while. However, other people managed to use it even with 10 devices at the same time. Anyhow, I think it’s not worth the hassle.
