How to Earn a Quick 10 Bucks – My MOGL Review
You probably came here looking for a review of MOGL because you saw a flyer or something and you want to know if they really work and if you can trust them right?
When I first heard of them, I couldn’t find any reviews, so I’ve decided to do a review of my own to benefit everyone out there who has questions about MOGL.
A few months ago, I found a flyer for a company called MOGL at Abbey’s Real Texas Barbecue in San Diego. MOGL’s a site that gives you 10% cash back when you eat at restaurants. I signed up for it and registered my card at the site right away, but I haven’t actually used the site until recently, because I moved to a part of LA County where there just didn’t happen to be many participating restaurants.
Getting Cash Back from MOGL
Some restaurants started poppng up near where I live and near where my girlfriend lives, so I gave them a try and got 10% back to my MOGL account. I also figured out how to win the easy ‘jackpots’ that they have every month and won an extra $40. That was enough to pay for both of my meals.
When I joined, they were giving you $5 right away, but MOGL has a new promotion where I get to offer you $10 just for joining. And what’s even better is that if you join, I get $10 too! So we both get $10 just for joining.
OK, there’s a little more to it than that…
How MOGL Works
MOGL is a site that works with restaurants in San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties to give you 10% back on your purchases. You don’t need to do anything special, just register a visa or mastercard with MOGL, and use it at one of the participating restaurants.
Watch their promotional video below. It’s pretty funny and it’ll give you an overview of the program

I have gotten paid back to my credit card by MOGL Here’s what you need to know:
MOGL won’t actually pay you anything until you get to over $10 bucks ($10.01 will get you paid). So when I joined, I had a ways to go before I got paid. But you, my friend, only have to eat at one single measly restaurant to get paid. I’ve found that it’s kind of hard to earn $10 because you only get 10% back, so you have to spend at least $100 at participating restaurants.
I think it would actually be easier to do if you lived in San Diego where they have more restaurants.
It’s a lot easier to get paid if you win a jackpot, and it turns out that that’s not so hard to do. I’ll show you how to do it in the video at the bottom of this page.
For now, you can enjoy the first video review of MOGL that I did.
My First Video Review of MOGL
Concerned that MOGL might be a shady company, harvesting credit card numbers for nefarious purposes? I’ve been with them for over 6 months and I’ve felt safe the whole time. If you don’t trust me, you can chek out the Better Business Bereau’s MOGL page.
Watch the video below to see how I won a $40 jackpot with almost no work at all. It was pretty fun.

Pushing MOGL to the Limit
You can get a pretty sweet deal if you stack MOGL with restaurant.com certificates and maybe a cash-back visa.
I’m pretty good at getting discount codes for Restaurant.com and posting them on my site. Check out this post to find the latest Restaurant.com discount code. It will let you buy $25 gift certificates for something like $2 or $3.
I’d say that MOGL is a pretty easy way to save 10%. The company seems to be pretty solid and trustworthy, and my experiences with customer service have been good.
The bad things about it would be that it can take a long time to earn enough to get paid unless you eat at a MOGL restaurant a lot or spend at least $100 eating out every month. But if you go for an easy jackpot like I show you in the video above, it’s not that hard to get paid.
Also, there aren’t that many participating restaurants in the LA area right now. More restaurants seem to join every day though.
Taking everything into account, I have no problem recommending MOGL.
These are just some questions I noticed that people were searching for.
- Need to find YOUR MOGL code?
- Need a MOGL code to earn you $10 when you sign up?
- You can use mine. It’s EdwardShapard
- How does MOGL make money?
- OK this isn’t a definitive answer or anything, but my guess is that the restaurants agree to pay MOGL just over 10% of the purchases you make and then MOGL passes the 10% on to you and keeps the remainder. Every week or so each restaurant sends purchase data to MOGL and MOGL then looks for credit card numbers that match their user database. This is just speculation on my part. Actually… this means that if you sign up for MOGL a few days AFTER eating at a participating restaurant, you might get credit for it. Once you sign up to MOGL, you can visit their user forum and ask them how they make money directly. They’ll get back to you.
- Is there a MOGL credit card?
- No, MOGL is not a credit card company. The service works with your existing Visa, Mastercard, or American Express card.
- How do I find MOGL participating reastaurants in OC, San Diego, or LA?
