Every month, Salad users claim thousands of Discord Nitro and Nitro Classic subscriptions using the dormant power of their home computers. If you’re new to Salad—or you haven’t copped a sub of your own—let’s find out how to earn your next month of Discord Nitro on us.

What Is Salad?

The Salad Storefront as seen in the Salad app.

Salad is a free app that helps you maximize the value of your gaming PC by turning idle compute resources into games, DLC, gift cards, and other epic rewards whenever you go AFK.

Download Salad today to empower your idle hours.

Get Discord During Downtime

Gamers play for two hours a day on average—meaning their PCs sit idle for the other 22! With Salad, that’s 11 minutes of pay to every minute of play.

Salad activates the power of your idle GPU (and CPU!) with just one click. Use Salad whenever you go AFK, and you'll grow enough Salad Balance to score your next month of Discord Nitro in no time.

How Does Salad Work?

Salad puts your PC to work producing cryptocurrencies on blockchain networks like Ethereum. The first time you run Salad, we’ll spec out your rig to determine how to make the biggest heaps of AFK pay. For the full picture, check out "A Gamer’s Guide to Blockchain and Crypto."


Just hit “Start” to begin Chopping for downtime dinero. Leave the rest to us. You take home everything you earn to use on Steam downloads, gift cards, Minecraft loot, and more epic rewards at the Salad Storefront.

The Salad

The best part? You’re always in control. Salad has options to run automatically and at startup for your convenience, but you can customize your experience right from the app.

What’s a "Chef?"

We’re all Chefs! Every Salad user is a vital part of keeping our infinite Kitchen cooking. The more hands in, the greater the spoils. Meet the rest of the squad in the Salad Chefs Discord—now home to more than 20,000 fellow Chefs.

Is It Really Free?

Using Salad does require some extra juice, but most Chefs clear far more in value than they’ll need to spend in electricity. Depending on the energy grid in your part of the world, you could see an uptick on your monthly bill—we’ve covered this before—but running Salad for a few hours is roughly on par with an equal measure of hardcore gaming.

If you’re gaming on someone else’s dime, it’s important to Chop responsibly. For those of you in a college dorm? We won’t tell your RA…

How Much Can I Make?

Performance metrics from the last week.

Since the start of this year, Chefs are making more than $2.50 per day—around 18 bucks a week! That’s like pulling down TWO monthly Discord Nitro subs or a few Steam downloads. All you need to do is run Salad whenever you’re not gaming and watch that fresh lettuce stack up!

Discord Nitro and Nitro Classic continue to be some of our Chefs’ most favored redeems. Check out our guide to understand the benefits of both subscriptions and the differences between them.
