If you’re a Facebook user in the US with a pre-paid mobile phone, there’s a new app called “Embee Mobile Minute Wallet” that can help you earn, buy, redeem, share, and manage top-up minutes – all through Facebook. The idea is simple – sign up for the app on Facebook, enter your mobile number, tell Embee which carrier you’re with, and you’ll receive a text message validating your account. From there, you can manage your minutes on Facebook.
You can try it for free and get 25 free mintutes of top-up time by filling out a quick survey within the app on Facebook about which Embee features you’d find most appealing. Inside the Embee Mobile Minute Wallet Facebook app, you can:
- Buy minutes using: Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, “Spare Change” or “Pay by Mobile”
- Earn free minutes by taking quizzes, filling out surveys, etc. (sounds very similar to Peanut Labs‘ approach)
Embee is based in San Francisco, California. The Embee Mobile Minute Wallet is available for a wide number of pre-paid mobile users, and is apparently coming to more soon.
