Your data makes money – but currently that cash goes to tech giants like Google and Facebook. They make billions, while you get nothing.

A new and extremely simple app has just launched that turns this model on its head. Slice analyses your data, works out what you’re looking for and matches you with relevant brands.

The app cuts out the middleman so you can be paid directly for connecting with brands – to the tune of up to £1,200 a year.

Earn cash and plant trees

In partnership with My Green Pod, Slice will pay for a tree to be planted in the tropics for every new customer who accepts an offer from a matched brand.

Signing some or all of your earnings over to your favourite sustainability fund or other worthy cause would make an even bigger impact. Together, we could tackle the climate emergency head on, while earning money and taking control of what’s ours.

The Slice app is now available to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
