First Off, What is Mobee?

Mobee is an app available on the Google Play Store and Apple store that rewards you to visit your favorite stores. Earn rewards by completing questionnaires in stores about your experience and products! When you open the Mobee App, you can find thousands of “Missions” across the U.S. and Canada at a variety of retailers. 

Each Mission consists of multiple simple questions and photos while you shop, and approved answers earn points for your work. As you progress, you will unlock achievements. You can then redeem your points for gift cards! Now, onto your more advanced questions. 

Questions About “When Will I Recieve My Points”

  • How long does it take for me to get my points? 
    • After we receive your Mission submission, the next step is to determine if a Mission can be approved. Missions are checked for data accuracy, honesty, date and time of Mission, location and photo clarity. This process takes 24 to 72 hours. 
    • Sometimes there will be validation delays depending on different reasons. You can reach out to support@getmobee.com for more information.
