What You Should Know First
Currently Locket is only available for Android and to US users. As answered on Locket's Facebook page, the app uses GPS to provide local ads and coupons.
What it Does
Locket places an ad on your cellphone's lock screen instead of your background image. You can swipe right to unlock your phone as usual or swipe left to interact with the ad. So far, all the ads I have seen pay 1 penny. If you think about how often you interact with your phone, you can see it will eventually add up.
Making Money and Cashing Out
As mentioned, each Locket ad pays about $0.01, so you won't get rich quick here. But in the 8 days I have had the Locket app installed, I have made $0.82. It is fun for me because I'm not doing anything different. Not all ads pay out if you have seen them recently. According to Locket, they pay based on how often you naturally unlock your phone. The more often you use your phone, the more you will make.
Bonuses are randomly given out to loyal users. Cash out is at $10, and I will update how long it took me to get there. Locket pays with Paypal, so you are getting cash, not points! Locket pays out on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, and you need to have your request for payment made one week ahead.
Sweepstakes for $300
In the month of October, Locket is offering a sweepstakes where active Locket users can win $300. You just need to enter once, and as long as you are using the app, you will be entered every day. If you refer friends using your referral link and they win, you win the same!
