With an iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry smartphone, you earn points every time you check-in on the WeReward app. Every point equals one penny, and once a user earns 1,000 points, the cash can be redeemed via PayPal.

Each business decides the number of points a check-in is worth, which could be five points or 200 points for a check-in and photo at a certain restaurant. Points can also be earned by completing designated tasks in any location, like snapping a photo of someone, or you, drinking a Jones soda.

To use the application, you must have a Facebook, Twitter, or FourSquare account.

Points can also be earned by referring friends to WeReward. Each friend who then joins earns you 10 percent of all of their check-in points.
