SlideJoy — Earn Money on Your Phone

SlideJoy is a unique Android app that will pay you for the privilege of letting them display ads on your phone’s lockscreen. Instead of haveing your regular swipe-down notifications appearing on your screen when you turn on the display, you will see a full-screen advertisement. To remove it, just swipe it to the right side. To see more about the ad, just swipe left. To see trending news and articles, swipe up.

You can even choose a design for your advertisements, which is pretty cool. You can also choose a password or PIN if you want to protect your phone and keep it locked. (You can still view your notifications over the ad if you swipe them down from the top.)

But the thing I like most about Slidejoy is that you can pause it if you want. Most other apps that are similar to Slidejoy don’t let you do that. Of course, you won’t get paid for the time it was paused, but there are times where you just don’t want to keep seeing ads when you turn on your screen, such as if you’re watching a video or something.

More Ways to Earn With Slidejoy

You can earn even more money by taking surveys through their partners, such as Peanut Labs and Cint. All surveys are done straight from the app and are easy to take. Another way to earn is by completing offers, such as trial signups and downloading other apps. You won’t earn a lot of money by doing this, but if you’re bored with nothing to do, then it’s a great way to fill your time.

You can also get a chance to earn extra money by entering raffles and by scratching digital cards and seeing if you get two or three matching results.

How Much Can You Earn With Slidejoy?

There is no set amount of how much you will earn. It probably depends on how much you use your phone. You’ll find out how much you earned the previous day at 12 PM Eastern Time the next day, when your balance will be updated. It makes It makes no difference whether you swipe left or right; you will be paid the same just for using the app.

I usually earn around 15-20 cents a day. Other people may have different earning rates. Of course, you can always earn more by completing offers and taking surveys.

How Does Slidejoy Pay You?

You can get paid via Paypal, Bitcoin, or through gift cards at popular stores, such as Target, eBay, and Starbucks. Payouts start at $2 for Paypal (which equals 2,040 “carats”). You can also choose “Hero mode,” where your earnings will be donated to charity.

Here’s how payments work: Your balance will be pending until the end of the month. When the month ends, your balance will become redeemable and you will get paid 18 days later, on the 18th of the next month. So let’s say you earned $2 in January, you will get paid on February 18th.

Slidejoy will only pay you if you live in the United States, Europe, India, Canada, or Brazil.

So, Is Slidejoy Legit? Can It Really Be True?

I like Slidejoy more than the other similar apps out there. I would be swiping my lockscreen anyway to remove the notifications and open the phone, and with Slidejoy, I also have to swipe only once. So basically, I’m earning money every day by doing nothing. I also like the fact that I can pause it at any time. Overall, Slidejoy is my favorite lockscreen app so far.

I haven’t yet got paid by them, but they currently have a 4.4-star average rating on Google Play, which is a strong indicator that they do indeed pay. I like the fact that the minimum payout is only $2, which makes it more flexible to use. The only drawback about Slidejoy is that you have to wait a while before you can redeem your points.

    Who pays the taxes on the money made. I’m on SSI disability. And I can only make a set amount a month. I no longer pay taxes.

      Hey Derek,

      I’m not a lawyer, but usually the way it works with these kinds of stuff is that you’re considered an independent contractor and you’re going to have to pay self-employment tax. Whether this applies to your particular situation as well I’m not sure, so I recommend contacting a lawyer or CPA.

      All the best,

    I have been using Slidejoy for 2 months but haven’t been able to redeem. In the beginning I used to get 100-130 carates every day but I get as low as 10 carates.

    But I don’t think Slidejoy. And I’m still happy with it. Because I am earning something for doing nothing.

      Hey Himanshu,

      Thanks for sharing that with us 🙂

      I haven’t used Slidejoy in a while, so it’s always good to hear from someone who has.

      All the best,

    Hello Ben,

    I’m curious: how much of your phone battery does this (or similar) apps use? Also, does it keep track and report when you are out of signal range?

    Sorry to be nosy, but this sounds like an easy way to getting a little extra, but I spend a lot of time away from civilization.

    1. Ben (Post author)

      Hey Mar,

      I didn’t notice it taking up too much battery. If you swipe to see more and read the article, then it might take up battery and data.

      I haven’t tried it, but I assume that it might not work if your phone doesn’t have an internet connection. So if you’re out of range, it probably won’t work. That doesn’t mean you can’t get paid for when you do have a connection, though!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Slide joy seems like a great app for someone who likes to use their phone a lot! By the end of the year you could probably have several free coffees for doing nothing like you said!

    You said this was for android — do they have this for iphone as well?

    1. Ben (Post author)

      Hey Michael!

      No, I do not think they are available for iPhones. Of all the apps that pay you for displaying ads on your lockscreen, and I know around 10 of them, I don’t think any work on iPhones. Probably something to do with the iPhone’s operating system.

      Thanks for stopping by!
