Meet Tengi, a chat app that gives out rewards to users

Join the weekly draw and you could win ₹1 lakh in prize money

Sometimes you pay money to use an app. And sometimes the app pays you. Huh? What?

That’s right. The makers of Tengi (Android and iOS) are handing out rewards to users - by sharing half the advertising revenue they make from in-app ads.



Raking in the moolah

Want to get in on this sweet, sweet prize money action? First, you have to be at least 18 years old. You are? Great. Install the app, start using it and start inviting your pals. You’ll be issued ‘tickets’ for the sweepstakes depending on how much you use Tengi.  For example, just installing the app (and keeping it installed) gets you a ticket to each week’s draw, you get more tickets for chatting, and more if your friends sign up as well. You also get tickets if one of your friends wins. (Though if your best mate wins the grand prize after you send him an invite, he probably owes you a lot more. We’d say a dinner at a fancy restaurant would be fair.)

As of now, there’s a weekly grand prize of ₹1 lakh, but even if you have the luck of a horror movie sidekick, don’t worry, there are other, smaller prizes to be won as well (as e-vouchers).
