20 cogs review: How much money can you make?
20 cogs is a site I have used a while ago and it is a decent one-off way of making some extra money. Free to get started, it is often said you can make over £100 - 200. In this 20 cogs review, I will go through all of the 20cogs offers that I used on my way to some nice profit. As well as my thoughts in general about the site.
How does 20 cogs work?
'20 cogs' works by completing different offers. The offers tend to be paid to sign up offers or free sign up offers. So either a gambling website, free survey site sign-ups, and free trial offers
The vast majority of the offers that are out there are profitable, so you get paid more for the cog than the intiial outlay. This is why this is such a good way of making money.
Works similarly to a cashback website, once you click through your sign up offer will track. Normally takes 24 hours to go pending and then can take 30 days to get paid
How do you redeem and get paid?
This is one problem with 20cogs. In order to get paid, you do need to complete 20 different offers, with the time taken for offers to turn green and payable can be about 30 days. it may well take a couple of months before you can get paid.
Be prepared to spend a bit of money before you get paid but for a small expenditure, you can get a big profit.
Is 20 cogs legit?
20 cogs is definitely legit, many many people have had good payouts, the difficulty is that you need to complete 20 offers to get paid. If you sign up and only do a few or even do 19 you will have to pay out some money but won't get anything in return until you complete the 20th. For that reason the very similar site 'oh my dosh' may be better as the withdrawal is only £10 and you can pick and choose your offers and not need to get all 20 done
The 20 cogs sign up a referral bonus
Another way of earning with 20 cogs is by referring your friends, as well as them getting the opportunity to earn some money. If they sign up with your link you get 5% of their earnings and an additional £20 once they cash out
Top tips for completing the 20 cogs offers
- Keep all of the email confirmations for sign ups and any other proof that you need, if it doesn’t turn orange in the set time, send a help ticket, give them all the details and they will change it manually, I probably had to do this 5 times, but was never an issue, and they responded very quickly
- On the free trials, set reminders, write on your hand, and tell people to remind you but just don’t forget to do the cancellation, you’ll be kicking yourself if you do.
- Do the research some offers like the Lotto ones were a pain in the arse so may want to avoid some. But particulary for the cancellations well worth googling to see how it is done

Overall 20 cogs is a good way of earning some money, but there are things to be wary about, you will need to complete all 20 and there will be some initial payout. Whether it is as much as the £200+ many reviews say is unclear but it is certainly a profitable venture. More so if you get your friends and family involved
