As a full-time travel blogger, I’m always looking for ways to save money or better yet, earn money. My traveler fee was automatically routed into my bank account for a nice total of $500. The money I made by using Grabr covered the cost of my hotel room for three nights, transportation to and from the airport, Tango classes, and a couple of delicious meals with Malbec wine in Buenos Aires.

Moscow has been on my bucket list forever, and I had an incredible trip overall! I made $913 (no joke!) and finally got to see the Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral in front of my own two eyes! Read more
It is fun meeting local people because they give you good recommendations regarding places to visit and foods to eat. Plus the app is easy to use and very intuitive.
I delivered all my grabs within two hours. I chose the lobby of my hotel because it was in a central part of the city and the most convenient place for me. I lived in Asia for more than 12 years, so I know just how impossible it is to get what I’d consider 'everyday' items. Certain companies simply don’t deliver to Asia no matter what, and Grabr is a great workaround.
Before heading to Thailand for a work trip, I logged in to Grabr to see if anyone wanted items from the United States. Turns out, there were lots of requests! I made bids and almost all were accepted, which ultimately allowed me more spending money once on-the-ground.
I was able to meet most of my shoppers on my first day in town. Every single person was different—some where from India, China, and even a few from Americans living there. Everyone greeted me with a huge smile when they received their items. Some even hugged me and one of them gave me a ride on his scooter to a temple I wanted to visit.
Once I arrived to Buenos Aires, I sat down with the products, mapped out the meeting points, and suggested pick-up times for each shopper. I messaged them, they agreed, and then I went on my merry way delivering the items. Three of the seven shoppers I had grabs for met me in my hotel lobby; the rest I met in public places around the city. It was extremely efficient and everyone was happy.
A local gifted me his favorite Brazilian treats as a thank you for bringing him a pair of sneakers. If this isn’t the cutest thing, I don’t know what is. Making instant friends abroad is what I love most about Grabr.
