Welcome to my BonusJunkies Review.
You may be here because you saw BonusJunkies in one of your social media feeds or someone referred you, and you'd like to know if they're legit. I understand. With the promise of $500 - $1000 today... I wanted to know too.
BonusJunkies is promising big bucks here and they make it sound easy, so I must admit... my first thought when landing on their homepage (shown above) was that they're a scam.
I also had a funny feeling I've seen them before, which I'll discuss more about in a moment.
But, if you're struggling financially or experiencing anxiety in this current crisis, I get it. The opportunity to make hundreds of dollars from your home is hard to ignore.
In this review I'm going to explain who BonusJunkies is, what they do and how they work. I'll also uncover whether their legit or a scam, and why...
Here are the broader topics I’m going to cover, and within each I'll get into the specifics…
- What is BonusJunkies
- Is BonusJunkies a Scam?
- How Does BonusJunkies Work?
- BonusJunkies Reviews and Complaints
- What I Like About BonusJunkies
- What I Don’t Like
- Where Do You Go From Here?

What Is BonusJunkies?
According to BonusJunkies, they’re the #1 Influencer Network. I'm not even sure exactly what that means to be honest, but if I had to guess I'd say they're the biggest or most popular platform that enables influencers to make a lot of money (according them them, between $500 and $1,000 per day).
The problem with that claim is I've never heard of BonusJunkies until recently, and you probably haven't either. Depending on when you're reading this, they're probably new to you too.
When I think of the biggest and most popular influencer networks, platforms like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and TikTok come to mind. Not BonusJunkies.
But, maybe I'm missing something.
Looking at their “business model” it seems they’re similar to other "rewards" sites. The kind that pay you to answer surveys and perform simple tasks for money.
The big difference though, is that the legit rewards sites I know of don't pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars per day. They pay a few dollars at most, which is helpful for a lot of people... but BonusJunkies claims to pay so much more.
So much in fact, it doesn't make any sense. For them to pay each you $500 to $1000 per day, they have to earn at least that much themselves. And not just for you, but for every member.
Where are they getting all of that kind of money? I'm going to talk about that below...
Is BonusJunkies a Scam?
Look, I'm not going to beat around the bush. Any person, program or company that claims you can make hundreds of dollars per day with ease, is almost certainly a scam. And I'm using the "almost" generously.
The numbers just don't support it.
First, BonusJunkies claims to be the #1 Influencer network, and to the be the #1 Influencer network they would need millions of members, and here's why...
We already know the biggest platforms influencers hang out like Facebook for example, have billions (billions with a B) of members. So, even if we assume BonusJunkies is lying about being number one or just being overconfident... they'd need at the very least, millions of members to even qualify.
Now, let's assume they are extremely overconfident and give them at the very low end. just one-million members, which is nothing for a platform that literally claims to pay people hundreds of dollars for sitting at home.
Next... since they say you can earn between $500 - $1000 per day, we'll also assume $1000 is a big stretch and hardly (if ever) do members make that much. Instead, we'll use the very low end and say they are only making $500 per day.
That gives us one-million members making $500 per day for a total of $500 Million Dollars per day!
That's $3.5 Billion Dollars per week, or $182.5 Billion Dollars per year, and that's just amount of money they are paying their members.
In order to pay out $182.5 Billion Dollars per year (again, a low estimate), their revenue would have to be GREATER than $182.5 Billion Dollars per year.
Even if they pay 70% of their revenue to their members (which is still a high amount), their annual revenue would need to be greater than $250 Billion Dollars.
That would put BonusJunkies annual revenue in the same ballpark as Apple's annual revenue.
In fact, even when we low-ball their numbers (based on their claims), they're annual revenue is literally $100 Billion Dollars higher than GM or Ford. And yet, hardly anyone has ever heard of them.
And the reason we know hardly anyone has ever heard of them, is because the number one task they want you to do is recommend them to your friends and family (who have never heard of them).
This is absolutely ridiculous! Based on their very own claims, BonusJunkies is saying they are as big as Apple, Ford and General Motors.
All of this becomes even more outrageous when we uncover the following red flags...
Red Flag #1 – No Owner Information
Nowhere online can you find out who the owner or CEO of BonusJunkies is.
Does that sound right for a company that claims to be as big as the biggest companies on the planet?
The truth is, there will always come a time when scams are exposed – and these scammers are always nowhere to be found. And yes, I am calling them scammers, for reasons revealed below.
Red Flag #2 – Fake Founding Date
BonusJunkies’ story on their About page says they started in March 2015.
But here's the thing...
Their site was only established in March 2020 (that’s a 5 year descrepancy). At the time of this BonusJunkies review, they are barely 2 weeks old (still a baby).
As you can see in the screenshot above, their domain name was only registered on March 31, 2020. How can they be the #1 anything in only two weeks?
They can't. Just like they can't pay their members $500 - $1000 per day.
There's a reason legit reward sites don't pay that kind of money... because it doesn't make sense.
It's true, you can make money online with survey sites. Survey Junkie for example (the real Survey Junkie... NOT the fake Surveyjunkies at surveyjunkie.co) and sites like Inbox Dollars will not make you rich (and they won't pay enough for a full-time income) but they're an easy way to get started if you've never made money online before.
And, they can be a stepping stone to something more serious like an online business.
But earning the kind of money BonusJunkies is talking about by doing simple tasks is not realistic.
You may be at home because of difficulties with your health for example, young ones to look after or because you lost your job.
And, if that’s the case and a full-time income online is what you want, knowing how and where to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.
Red Flag #3 – No Social Media Presence
Yes, you will see social media icons on BonusJunkies’ homepage (Facebook, Twitter, and Google+). However, these are all fakes and link to nowhere. They’ll only lead you back to their site if you click on them.
Of course, it’s understandable why BonusJunkies doesn’t have a Social Media presence. They’re only 2 weeks old at the time of this writing remember?
Again, they’re lying here... claiming to be one of the most significant companies on the planet and they don't even have a social media presence?
Their entire business is built around sharing and advertising on social media, and they don't even have their own social media accounts.
Red Flag #4 – BonusJunkies is a Clone of SurveyJunkies.co?
I've seen enough lies and false claims at this point to call BonusJunkies a scam, but this review is not for me. It's for you.
And more importantly, we're talking about a website that if it were real, could literally change your life. So, even with the evidence we've already reviewed, I think it's appropriate to go deeper, which is what I did.
That lead me to this...
If you look at their homepage closely, you will see that they are actually branded as SurveyJunkies and not BonusJunkies.
Why is this important?
Well... if you go to the website surveyjunkies.co, it is currently being redirected to bonusjunkies.co which means this rabbit hole goes deeper than we thought.
SurveyJunkies also shows up on their About page. You will see in the screeshot below they are referring to themselves as SurveyJunkies (which they probably forgot to edit out).
Here's the problem...
The Better Business Bureau has issued a warning against surveyjunkies.co because they are an imposter of the LEGIT Survey Junkie found at surveyjunkie.com (BBB screenshot below).
So, if SurveyJunkies is an imposter website (and a fraud according to the Better Business Bureau) and it redirects to BonusJunkies... that's a pretty big sign that BonusJunkies is also a fraud.
Red Flag #5 – Fake Payment Proofs
I still have a lot to reveal in my BonusJunkies review… but for now, you should know their "payment proofs" (as well as their testimonials) are also fakes! They are related to various other scam sites and I'll share that evidence below in the following red flags...
Red Flag #6 – BonusJunkies is a Clone of Tap2Earn?
Below are screenshots of some of BonusJunkies payment proofs. Please take special note of the Coinbase proof of payment because it’s also used as a payment proof for a site called Tap2Earn.
So, not only is BonusJunkies copying their payment proof from another website, that other website (Tap2Earn) as been exposed as a big scam.
Interestingly, Tap2Earn also claims to be the #1 Influencer Network.
Red Flag #7 – Fake Testimonials
You might find this hard to believe (or maybe not), but all the members’ testimonials on BonusJunkies are all fakes. Keep the following names in mind... Ashlee N., Michael D., Bryan S., and Jaysen L as they will become more relevant in a moment.
The images in the screenshot above are all made-up people and I’m going to show you proof...
Red Flag #8 – BonusJunkies is a Clone of OGTask?
Just like BonusJunkies is a copy of the SurveyJunkies and Tap2Earn, they are also a copy of another site called OGTask.
If you look at the members’ testimonials on BonusJunkies and OGTask, you will see those same names I asked you to keep in mind (Ashlee N., Michael D., Bryan S., and Jaysen L)
Not only are these the same made up people, you'll also notice the same spelling error on both sites for the word “Testimonials”.
These are complete copy of one another.
And, if you haven't guessed already... OGTask is also a scam site.
Red Flag #9 – BonusJunkies is a Clone of Cash4Clickz?
Like those above, in the screenshots below you'll see that BonusJunkies and another site called Cash4Clickz also use the same testimonials (the names and text match) with different images.
And... here again as you probably suspect, Cash4Clickz has also been exposed as a scam...
... and if you have multiple scam sites that are also sister clones of BonusJunkies, it is likely to mean one thing…
Red Flag #10 – Better Business Bureau Warning
Speaking of clone sites, two more of these sister scams are known as Notion Cash and Kids Earn Money and the Better Business Bureau is warning the public about them.
The BBB specfically talks about the scam signs such as high pay for the tasks you perform, as well as dangerous activities such as data harvesting and identify fraud.
So is BonusJunkies a scam?
In my opinion, yes. From fake payment proof and testimonials to false claims and lies about when they opened... there are far too many red flags here.
Still, as I mentioned earlier, I know a site like this would be life changing if it were legit so I don't want you to just take my word for it. In addition to the red flags above, I want to be fair and complete in my BonusJunkies review, so... please read on to find out how they work.
How Does BonusJunkies Work?
1. Sign up
BonusJunkies is free to join and if you join them, they’ll give you a signup bonus of $30. Well, at least that's what they say.
But wait, they also say their signup bonus is $25 (screenshot below).
It's difficult to keep the lies straight I'm sure, especially when they are copying pages from one scam site to the next.
But, whether they say it's $25 or $30, I'll let you in on their secret, which is that they won't pay you a single penny.
2. Refer people and perform tasks
According to Bonus Junkies, one of the best ways to earn is by refer other people. and getting them join. They’ll assign you with a unique referral link – and you’ll get paid $15 every time someone joins BonusJunkies through your link.
They’ll also pay you $2 for every click (even if your referrals don’t join their platform). You can see how these earnings would add up, that is, IF BonusJunkies were legit.
Howvever... we've already established they're a scam.
The truth is, and we've seen this many time with their sister scams, is that they won't pay you. It will just seem as though they’re paying you because your earnings are accumulated in your back-office account.
But when it’s time to cash out, they’ll either block you or ignore you citing various reasons such as fraud on your account, or you didn't meet some requirement.
3. Get paid
Step three in a legit situation would be to get paid. But... we know they're a scam. They may advertise a lot of payment methods like PayPal and direct-mail checks, but it's all a pack of lies. They won’t pay you.
As you saw above in the BBB’s warning to the public, these scam sites are pretending to be influencer platforms and market research sites.
They’ll tempt you with their high payouts to entice you to join them – but in reality, they’re harvesting your data. The dangers of joining these scam sites include the following:
- Getting spam emails
- Identity Theft
- Viruses and malware
- Stolen information (bank accounts, credit card details, etc.)
BonusJunkies is up to no good and they will attempt to rip you off.
I know you want to make money online and I understand. I've been earning a living online for a long time now and I get it. I love working from home (especially with this current crisis) so I get why others are desperate to learn how to do it as well.
But, I can't tell you how to make the kind of money BonusJunkies is promising. You can earn some extra money with online survey sites, just not that kind of money.
Legit market research companies like the real Survey Junkie (not the fake BonusJunkies clone) and Inbox Dollars are a way to earn a little money while doing things you may be doing online anyway, like searching the web, watching videos and visiting websites.
Again, I need to make this clear so there's no confusion. You won't be able to retire by doing online surveys, but if you've never made money online before, they can be a good place to start.
For something more significant, an online business may be what you're looking for.
Making money from home might be something you need because of medical issues, children to look after, or maybe you're just tired of working for a boss.
If that’s the case, knowing how (and where) to get started is what you need in order to get what you want.
BonusJunkies Reviews and Complaints
At the time of writing this BonusJunkies review, they’re barely 2 weeks old. It’s impossible to find any honest reviews about them at this point because their members are still working hard and completing tasks on their platform.
Here’s the truth about these scam sites though… They’ll require you to perform a certain number of tasks before you can request your payment.
For example (and this is just an example because the specifics change from scam to scam and the mood they're in), but generally speaking they’ll require you to have something like 10 referrals first, or at least so many clicks.
They’ll also ask you to accomplish at least 5 other tasks on your task wall before you can request a withdrawal of your earnings... which also includes your signup bonus.
They want to hold on to you for as long as possible so you can promote their site to your friends and family.
Since BonusJunkies is a clone of other scam sites, I’m going to show you some of the reviews from their sister sites which all belong to the network of schemes (and sell the same web of lies).
Below are screenshots of some of the reviews on SurveyJunkies.co (BonusJunkies’ sister clone/scam site on Red Flag #4).
Remember, SurveyJunkies.co is NOT the same as "Survey Junkie" which is a legit site. SurveyJunkies.co (the imposter) now redirects to BonusJunkies.co and therefore, they’re one and the same thing.
In other words, the reviews and complaints below are for BonusJunkies as well.
And below are screenshots of some of the reviews and complaints on Tap2Earn (BonusJunkies’ other sister clone/scam on Red Flag #6).
It doesn't stop there though...
Check out the screenshots below for reviews on Cash4Clickz (the sister scam featured in Red Flag #9).
As you can see. The vast majority of complaints are about members not being able to cash out and never receiving their money.
What I Like About BonusJunkies
I would have liked that BonusJunkies is legit – but sadly, they’re not.
So there’s really nothing to like about them.
What I Don't Like
- Lies, lies and more lies. They are a scam.
- They hurt innocent people by getting their hopes up only to break their hearts in the end.
- They steal your personal information like login credentials and credit card numbers.
- Because one of your tasks is to create testimonials and recommend BonusJunkies to others... they are asking their members to effectively lie and send their friends and family down the same path.
Where Do You Go From Here?
If you haven't already joined BonusJunkies, I advise you to stay away. They are a scam.
If you have joined, my advice would be to change any and all passwords you have shared with BonusJunkies and their partner sites. With the same email/password combinations, they can not only steal and sell your login credentials to criminals, they can also hack into your accounts themselves.
They can do a tremendous amount of damage and the worst part is that the damage they cause comes at a time when you are in the most need of help.
You may be buried under a mountain of debt or trying to catch up with a stack of bills that keeps getting bigger and bigger. Sites like BonusJunkies comes along promising to help you, and instead... they rip you off.
And they'll rip your family and friends off as well if given the chance.
If you can, please warn others about BonusJunkies as well. We can all do our little part in minimizing the damage these scammers are causing people.
And, although I can't help you make thousands of dollar each and every day with ease (I can't even do that myself), what I can tell you is that it's still possible to make money online. It's just not as easy as BonusJunkies says it is.
You might be a student in school or a single parent at home. You may have health challenges that make regular work difficult, or maybe you just hate your job and you’re desperate for a way out.
If that's the case, an online business is what you want.
With all the scams and schemes like BonusJunkies out there though, knowing how and where to get started the right way is what you need in order to get what you want.
As I've said before, they won't make you rich, but if you've never made money online before, they can be a good first step to bigger things down the road.
