If you are interested in this opportunity, I highly suggest you continue reading this Grab My Bag review to know if it is worth it.
In this review, I will explain everything the platform offers so you will know exactly what to expect from it. That way, you can make an educated decision on whether or not this opportunity is the right fit for you.
So without further ado, let’s go ahead and take a closer look, shall we?
What is Grab My Bag, and what does it offer?
Grab My Bag is a gig economy platform that will allow you to earn extra cash by delivering airport luggage to clients.
It’s definitely a legit site since you will really get paid to deliver luggage. However, this fact doesn’t necessarily mean this opportunity is worth it.
To figure out if this is the right fit for you, you must first understand how it works, so you’ll get a clear idea of how much time and effort is required of you to earn. And the best way to do this is to examine the earning opportunity it offers.
The video below explains exactly how Grab My Bag works. You can also read the full details below the video.

The earning opportunity – Luggage Delivery
As you can probably tell by the name of the website, to earn from this site, you have to deliver the client’s airport luggage to their preferred destination.
Once you become a Grab-ber (the term they use for the people who deliver luggage), you just have to log in to the platform to look for delivery jobs you can do.
Once you accept a job, all you have to do is go to the airport to pick up the luggage. Of course, you can only do this once the client has given you permission and the details for picking up the luggage. When you’ve claimed the luggage, all that’s left is to deliver them to the client’s preferred location.
Of course, this means you need to use a vehicle to deliver the luggage, so this opportunity is only for people who own a car. It would be quite impossible to do this job if you don’t own a vehicle.
As you can see in the photo above, the amount you can earn per job will depend on the number of bags you have to deliver. The minimum amount you can earn will be $15 for delivering just one bag. If you have to deliver 2 to 4 bags, you’ll earn $20, and if you have to deliver 5 to 10 bags, you will earn $27.
For deliveries that will involve more than 10 bags, the client has to pay an additional $1 per extra bag involved on top of the $27 base fee. The good thing about this platform, in my opinion, is that you don’t have to share the tip you get from the client with Grab My Bag.
In the next section, I will discuss how you will get paid.

How do you get paid?
Let me be honest with you, I was not able to get a complete look at Grab My Bag’s platform, and later you will understand why, so I’m not able to fully confirm the payment methods it offers.
But based on my experience, a gig economy site like Grab My Bag usually offers convenient payment methods like PayPal or direct bank transfer, so those options are probably available when you want to withdraw your earnings.
Aside from that, the site probably doesn’t have a threshold you need to reach to withdraw your earnings, so you can withdraw your earnings anytime you want. Overall, I would say the payment system of Grab My Bag is relatively straightforward.
If you are looking for more sites that offer a straightforward payment method, I recommend you also check out the top sites that pay via PayPal.
How much money can you make?
The amount you can earn will depend on how many deliveries you can do. In my opinion, the site does pay a decent amount per delivery. However, before you start, you must first think about the gas expenses involved while working as a Grab-ber.
Keep in mind that you will need to use a car to deliver the luggage, so being critical of which orders to accept is crucial to make money from this site. You always have to consider gas expenses when accepting orders.
If you think the order is not worth it (since the destination is far, and you only have to deliver one bag), then you have the prerogative not to accept it. Grab My Bag doesn’t force you to accept orders, which is a good thing.
Another thing you need to keep in mind is that you get to keep 100% of the tips you potentially earn. This can mostly offset the gas fees involved when delivering luggage. But of course, you have to do your best to provide the best service possible when delivering luggage. That would be your best chance of getting tips from clients.
Overall, I would say Grab My Bag offers decent earning potential as long as you are critical with the deliveries you accept.
Can you use it on mobile?
Grab My Bag doesn’t have a mobile app you can download, and the site also doesn’t indicate that Grab-bers can use a mobile app to accept orders. But based on my experience, gig economy platforms like this usually have a mobile platform available so that Grab-bers don’t need to use a computer to accept deliveries.
It would be quite impossible to do this kind of job if the platform is not accessible from a mobile device, so you should expect to be able to use it on a mobile device, in my opinion.
Who can join Grab My Bag?
At the time of writing this review, Grab My Bag is only available in the US. If you live in another country, you can use this as inspiration to look for other similar platforms available in your country instead.
As for how to become a Grab-ber, the process is quite long. The first thing you need to do is submit your application. You can do so by filling out the application form (refer to the photo above). As you can probably tell, this job entails that Grab My Bag should be able to trust you with handling other people’s luggage.
And for them to accept you, you have to provide some form of guarantee that you can be trusted to handle other people’s luggage. The first step to this is to provide your Social Security Number. If you don’t have one, you won’t be able to proceed with the application.
After you’ve submitted all the necessary personal information, you will need to undergo a background check. This process will involve a fee of $20, so if you are not willing to shell out that amount, then this opportunity is not for you.
If you agree to the background check, you’ll have to wait for Grab My Bag to finish it before you will hear back from them.
The problem with their application process, in my opinion, is that it can take up to 6 months before you will hear back from them. This is also the reason why I was not able to take a closer look at the member dashboard of the platform since the application process takes quite a long time.
This is why this opportunity is not suitable for people looking to earn immediately. You have to be very patient if you want to work as a Grab-ber. If your application is accepted, you will receive an email containing the full details of how you can start working.
Based on my experience, you’ll have to go through some kind of onboarding process before you will be able to start accepting deliveries.
Can you get support?
One thing I don’t like about Grab My Bag is that its website doesn’t contain a lot of helpful information for those who are interested in becoming a Grab-ber. It doesn’t have a FAQ page for Grab-bers that is readily accessible.
The only information available to interested Grab-bers is the pay structure and Grab-ber rating system, which is not that useful, in my opinion. Plus, if you have any questions and you are not yet a Grab-ber, the only way for you to submit your inquiry is by emailing them at [email protected].
But based on my experience, platforms like this usually provide decent support for those who are already working for them, so you can expect that to be the case if your application is accepted.
Overall, I would say Grab My Bag could do better by providing more helpful information for people who are interested in working as a Grab-ber.
Grab My Bag is a legit gig economy site that will pay you for delivering airport luggage. It has a couple of decent features, but it also has a few disadvantages you need to consider.
Let me finish this review by summarizing its pros and cons so you can get a clear overview of what the site has to offer. Then you can decide if this opportunity is the right fit for you or not.
- Offers decent pay rates for Grab-bers
- Very long application process
- The site doesn’t provide a lot of useful information for people interested in applying as a Grab-ber
In my opinion, Grab My Bag is not for everyone. This opportunity is only really for people who are not in immediate need to earn extra cash. You’ll have to be very patient if you are interested in earning from this site.
And even though the site offers decent pay rates, you still have to consider gas expenses when accepting deliveries if you want to really earn good money from it. That’s why I would only recommend you go for this site if you need an extra way to earn cash, but you are not in a hurry.
Otherwise, I would recommend you check out the best gig jobs and where to find them instead if you are looking for something that will allow you to earn quickly.
Or better yet, you can just check out the top survey and GPT sites in your country.
The sites on this list all have good earning potential, and you will be able to start earning immediately after sign-up. Plus, you will definitely find a site you can join regardless of where you live.
