How does the Leaderboard work?

The Leaderboard is the place where you see how many points you've earned so far this month and how many points other users have earned. Your rank on the Leaderboard is based on how many points you've earned in the month. Each rank has a dollar value and you'll get paid the value of whatever rank you have at the end of the month. All points reset at the beginning of the month, so each month every user has an equal opportunity to climb the Leaderboard. During the month, your rank and its value is updated instantly, so check the Leaderboard often! The more people that use Worthee, the more money you can earn, so invite your friends and co-workers to join Worthee (you'll also get points for each person you invite that signs up)!

How do I earn points?

You earn points simply by using the Worthee app. Examples of how you can earn points are as follows:

How much can I earn by using the Worthee app?

The value of your points depends on your rank on the Leaderboard, with the #1 rank on the Leaderboard worth the most (currently $1,000!) To move up the leaderboard earn points by reviewing yourself, your coworkers, and your workplace(s), and inviting co-workers and friends. After the end of the month each leaderboard earner is paid according to their rank and its corresponding value.

Who is eligible to earn money on the Leaderboard?

You must be at least 18 years old, a legal US resident, and earning no more than $20/hour (or the annual equivalent).

How do I get my cash if I’ve earned money on the Leaderboard?

Open the Worthee app and tap the Claim Your Cash notification at the top of your screen. If you don’t see the notification, go to the Leaderboard and tap Rewards History.

Do I need to claim my cash within a certain amount of time?

Yes, you need to claim your cash within 30 days after the end of the month in which you earned the money. If you do not claim within 30 days, the money is put back into the Value Sharing Leaderboard account.

Can I really earn cash each month just by using the app?

Yes, there's no catch! Real cash is awarded to the top users on the leaderboard.  After the end of each month we pay members with Venmo, PayPal, or check. To improve your rank, invite coworkers and friends, make reviews, and give insightful, constructive feedback.

Why did my points go down?

You will lose points if you give mean-spirited feedback or demonstrate unproductive reviewing behavior. You may also lose points by unproductively using the app which includes spamming the message board with irrelevant or excessive material. It is at the discretion of the admin to decide when to detract points. If you feel points were unjustly detracted please contact with your complaints and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Do my points expire?

All point values are reset at the beginning of each competition cycle.

Why is my rank different than someone who has the same number of points?

Rank ties are automatically settled by date, so the first to achieve the tied rank will be awarded the higher rank.

Why did the leaderboard amounts change in October?

The leaderboard is not just a contest – it's a reflection of each member's efforts in improving themselves, their coworkers, and their workplace. We changed this distribution of leaderboard amounts to give more people meaningful earnings. You may have noticed the very top spots have gone down, but we'll actually be awarding the most money yet to members overall – $20,000 in December! As always, we welcome feedback.
