Go Commando App – Get Paid by Brands on Campus

What is GoCommando?

GoCommando is an app that lets brands connect directly with students at colleges and universities around the country. Many of these companies want you to complete surveys, sample products and services, share material with your followers on social media, and complete exciting campus ambassadorships!

How can I earn money from using it?

When a brand posts a new opportunity, GoCommando will notify you, either my email, push notification or text message depending on which notifications you have enabled. All new opportunities will appear in the marketplace within the app. If an opportunity already has reached its student capacity, you can join the waitlist and be notified if a slot opens up for you.


Once you have accepted a task, you will complete the job entirely within the app. This could include answering questions or taking pictures of your work. If you have questions about a task, you can chat directly with the brand through the app.

On a side note, there are sometimes opportunities specifically for those in student organizations, bloggers, writers and those in Greek life as well, so be sure to share this with your friends who fall into any of these categories.

My Experience

I’ve had a great experience with GoCommando. I initially signed up when I received an email in my university account, and I thought that it was an interesting concept. However, I didn’t know if companies were actually using the app to find students, but they are actively posting some cool opportunities almost every day. I’ve been able to complete surveys and social media posts for big brands including HP, TIDAL and Minute Maid just to name a few.

You will be paid via direct deposit into your bank account and you can see the dollar amount of each opportunity before you “accept” it. The jobs that I have personally completed range from $7 to well over $10, but I’ve seen opportunities for a lot more than that as well.  This is definitely an app that you want on your phone.

9-27-16 Update: For the past week, there have been at least 2-3 opportunities posted to the app every single day. This week alone, I would say that I have earned at least $40 just from accepting different opportunities through GoCommando. Some of the newest companies that have been posting opportunities are the New York Times and the Economist. I think that more and more companies are starting to see the value in using GoCommando to recruit students pretty easily and efficiently, so if you haven’t already, I’d strongly encourage you to download the app now.
