Is TapBooty legit or a scam?“I like big butts and I can not lie” . Awww Sir Mix Alot had it right. Eddy with a y does like the big booty on a small waist not to be confused with an overweight booty. There is a difference. lol But what does Eddy's curvy fetish have to do with making money? It was my corny segue into my TapBooty Review. Don't worry this opportunity has nothing to do with shaking what your momma gave you. So let's get to the “bottom” of it. πŸ˜‰


Tapbooty was shut down on April 28, 2015. So I wouldn't recommend this company any more. You can get paid for downloading smartphone apps with the following companies instead:

What is TapBooty?

If you've gotten this far, thanks for not being a prude and having a sense of humor. You'll be rewarded for it. has nothing to do with twerking. It is basically a website that pays you primarily for downloading FREE apps from your iOS or Android smartphone.


Tapbooty will be shutting down on April 28, 2015. So I wouldn't recommend this company any more. You can get paid for downloading smartphone apps with the following companies instead:

How Do You Make Money with TapBooty?

Well aside from being paid to download apps to your phone you can get paid for the following:

  • Downloading apps/software to your laptop or desktop
  • Watching Videos on your phone.
  • Playing games
  • Referring other people

So you don't necessarily need a smartphone to make money with this company.

Watch my video walking you through how to make money with TapBooty down below:

How Much Money Can You Make with

Tap Booty uses their own currency like most extra money opportunities. It's called “booty coins” (snicker. lol). But these “booty coins” (snicker again here. lol) can be redeemed for REAL money via paypal or an amazon gift card. They can also be redeemed for other gift cards such as walmart, facebook, target and others.

1,000 booty points is equivalent to $1 and that's all you need to cash out. Since there are many apps that are as high as 500 “booty points” (giggle) you could probably cash out your first $1 and many more by today.

How Do I Join TapBooty?

TapBooty doesn't cost you anything to join and you don't have to buy apps or make in-app purchases to make money. Most of the apps are free. Signing up is totally free!

TapBooty Hacks & Tips

In order to increase your chances of earning more “booty coins”, here are some tips & “hacks”.

  • Refer a friend and you both get 100 Booty Coins, For every 1,000 Booty Coins your friend earns, you get another 100 Booty Coins. Forever. For Life. No Limit
  • After installing an app, you need to OPEN AND RUN the app for at least 30 seconds. Sometimes, it is not enough to open an app and wait.
    You need to open the app, go through the demo or signup process, and start using the app. Sometimes only after you actually use the app do you get credit.
  • Be patient! Usually you get coins right away, but sometimes it can take up to 24 hours. You may want to just check back tomorrow.
  • For apps, if you ever had the app in the past, even if you downloaded it from another site or directly from the App Store, you can't get credit again. So don't try to be slick, it won't work and they'll know.

TapBooty Complaints

Rewards aren't always credited.

Sometimes you'll download an app and your account is credited even after waiting the set time recommended. However when this happened to me, I just contacted support and they confirmed that I did download the app and rewarded my account right away. So you should keep track of which apps don't work. It doesn't happen all the time but it has to me. I also referred a friend which wasn't credited as well. So there seems to be some bugs that come up.

Rewards aren't instant.

Unlike one of my other favorite programs when you cash out your “booty coins” there seems to be a delay of up to 24hrs. That said when I cashed out I received my reward within a few hours. Either way it's not like you're waiting weeks for the money. A day shouldn't kill you. LOL

Facebook Sign up

In the past you were only able to sign up for this app using Facebook. But that is no longer a requirement. But because the option is so prominent you may be confused and think you have to use it. But you can sign up with an email address instead. I've used the facebook option and it was painless & it didn't do anything shady with my facebook info or wall.

The app is a little confusing.

When I was looking for the app, it was called MyTapBooty so I wasn't sure if it was the right app or someone trying to ride on the app's brand. And even when you do download and open the app, it pushes you to the mobile website instead of using the native app which is a bit confusing. Either way works but I think everything should stay in the app to avoid confusion.

Cash limited to Paypal

Although there are other cashing out options such as the gift cards, if you just want cold hard cash you need a paypal account. There isn't a check or direct deposit option so that may leave some people out if you don't like the other reward options.

Earning Potential is Limited

There are some people that don't think opportunities like this are worth their time and effort. They'll argue they need to make real money. Clearly TapBooty is more of an extra income opportunity that isn't designed for you to live off. But I take a multiple streams of income philosophy. Personally I think it makes perfect “cents” to get paid for things you do already. And I download apps all the time so if I can get paid for it then why not? All these little extra money making opportunities add up nicely and I tend to use them at the end of the year for holiday shopping or if I want to buy a new gadget like an iPhone 6. πŸ˜‰ But that's me. To some folks this would be a total waste of time and that has to be acknowledged.

So Is Legit?

Yes it is! I've been paid as you can see here. While it's not perfect and has some bugs here and there. When it does work, it works well. And even when it doesn't support seems to be on top of their stuff to help you resolve any issues.

So I definitely think that you should try TapBooty as a way to make extra money and to add to your multiple streams of little income that I always preach about. If you like the idea of getting paid for using apps you may want to try Ibotta as well.

However if you just don't feel like this is a way to make enough money you might want to try some other options such as Wealthy Affiliate .

Either way, Let me know what you guys think of this app down below. Are you willing to give it a shot or have you? Are there any other cool apps like this? Chime in down below.

  1. Eddy,

    Was looking at your post,however it is saying that: Booty Alert! will be shutting down on April 28, 2015. You will be able to complete offers through April 14, 2015. You will be able to redeem Booty Coins through April 28, 2015. tapbooty …so this may not be worth referring. Although love your site and emails.

    • Well thanks for the heads up. I’ll update this review. I can’t say I’m surprised after awhile they were being very inconsistent about crediting apps that were downloaded. Fortunately there are other options which I’ll list in my update.

      Thanks again!

  2. I don’t have a smartphone, I guess I am still old school I love my tracfone which I have been with them for years.. NOw I like the things I see that can be done.. I don’t like contracts for nay reason or lets say another bill added being I am unemployed..

    • Hey Debra,

      I totally understand from the expense standpoint.
      That said I couldn’t imagine my life without my smartphone now which is probably sad. Even more so when you consider I’m from the generation that grew up with telephone booths and without a cell phone. LOL

      But a smartphone has become more than a luxury item because of all the things you can do with it to make money and other everyday tasks that can be done. So it’s an investment that pays for itself over and over again depending on how much you use it and for what. Fortunately there are other ways to make money without one.

  3. Hi Eddy,

    I have commented before but had to give you an update. A few months ago, I gave up on Tapbooty completely. 1 out of 10 apps credited and they wouldn’t help at all. I tried explaining that I had opened and played all of them and could they help me figure out what was going wrong but they would not. It just got to be way too much hassel. Γ°ΕΈΛœβ€™

    • Hey HKFan,

      It’s always good to hear from you. Thanks for sharing your experience with this company. I’ve run into similar issues as well. It does seem to be hit or miss in terms of their tracking.

  4. I missed something since you posted this review. Tapbooty is not available on iTunes as an app. I tried with my iPad and laptop and they say you have to open the app with an application???
    I was able to download Tapbooty on my Android phone.
    This doesn’t appear to be a handsome offer compared to the many others you review.

    • David,

      I’m not sure what you’re talking about. I am able to find the app in itunes. Either way, I’m happy you were able to download it on your Android phone. I don’t know how “pretty” the opportunity is but I do know it does pay you for downloading apps. That said like most opportunities I’ve covered it will have some flaws. It’s just a matter of picking the opportunities that do appeal to you and ignore any that don’t. It’s exactly the reason why I try to cover so many so you can have options. Thanks for sharing your feedback though.

  5. I use an app on my android that is called cash pirate. I make $5 every 8-10 days. It is the same concept and probably has a lot of the same apps you can download (most use the same search engines). However they also have pirate picks, which are apps that I have only found on this specific app. So I can download more. 1000 equals $1 and you have to have at least $2.50 to get it through paypal. It is my favorite that I have found so far. if you can refer people then you get 10% of their earnings…I haven’t tested this out, as my friends obviously don’t like to make extra money…lol but I bet you could do well posting your referral code πŸ™‚

  6. Hello Eddy!
    Great video. Thank you for the time and effort. Will definitely give it a whirl. I am extremely interested in the Wealthy Affiliate. Would love to pick your brain as to getting started.

    • Hey Bob,

      I’m glad you liked the information and video. Let me know how it works out for you.
      In terms of WA, just visit this page and join. And if you have any questions you can contact me within WA. It doesn’t cost you anything to be a starter member. And I find once people get in WA, a lot of their initial questions and concerns are answered. But I’ll be in there anyway once you get in. Hope to see you there.

    • Good Morning Eddy,
      Thank you for your response. I signed up for TapBooty yesterday. And within a couple of hours, I managed to rack up over 1700 Booty Points( I can’t believe I just typed that, LOL). Of course, most of of that time was spent playing the games. They can be addicting. Have the honey-do list to tackle today, will look you up in WA either later this evening or tomorrow.
      Thanx for all you do,

    • Hey Bob,

      You said “booty points”. lol.
      No but seriously congrats on racking up the rewards so quickly. Are you planning to cash out now or wait until it builds up?

      See you in WA.

  7. Eddy, definitely going to look into Tapbooty. Your sense of humor is always appreciated while the info and effort you selfishly share with those of us less knowledgeable about how to earn incomes from many sources on the internet is always appreciated. Thanks again and best wishes to you and yours ::))

  8. Hi, I have been using tapbooty for quite awhile and have been paid out by them also. I tend to ignore them for awhile until they have a bunch of new apps up and then go on a downloading spree. I usually average 2-3 dollars each time. That being said, I would like to address your section regarding the apps not giving your coins. I have had a very different experience from you. I often have apps that do not credit, even after playing with them multiple times. When I contacted customer service, they told me that if I did not get credit, a button should pop up next to the app, if it doesn’t pop up, it means they did not get paid. That means they can’t pay me. He said it doesn’t happen often but on my last download spree a few days ago, I had 4/5 apps that did not credit and they could not pay me for. This does not cause me to give up on the app but is a bit frustrating. All in all, it is still pretty much free money and I have found a few apps I really like that way.

    Thanks again for another great article!

    • Hey HKFan,

      Thanks for sharing your experience and confirming that this worked for you as well. I agree the inconsistency of when the apps are credited is annoying at times. But support has been very responsive. Hopefully it gets better with time. But like you said, it’s free money. The effort required is minimal either way. Thanks again for chiming in!

    • I should also add, support for things other than the missing credits has been amazing. They even helped me find a solution to a problem I was having with my router. Tapbooty is very sensitive about bad IP addresses and Apple Airports get easily confused. The support at tapbooty was great with their help though. It is also worth noting, Tapbooty will generally Not run on cellular networks and usually not on public wifi. Not quite sure why but you get a hilarious animation about an angry booty cat. Lol

  9. As many times as you’ve used the word “booty,” it was hard not to laugh while reading this blog. 😊 I will definitely check this app out. I’ve tried the ibotta app, but they don’t offer products I use. However, they are updating often, so we’ll see. But I am downloading apps too often. So hopefully, TapBooty (just have to laugh at that name) will bring me a few bucks.

    • I couldn’t help it Ruby! LOL
      Glad to hear you’ll check it out and you have a good sense of humor. Let me know what you think.
      I’ve heard the same complaints about Ibotta. So hopefully this improves over time.

  10. Hi Eddy, I’ve never heard of this one. lol Now that song is in my mind and it will stay there for the rest of the day! lol πŸ˜› However, I did not find the video you were referring to. I’ve clicked on everything. ?? I did see where you were paid. Just don’t see the video. πŸ™‚ Interesting review though.
