The Internet is a free gift that most of us use all day - browsing through content, watching videos, and playing games beyond the scope of paid online work. With the advent of online rewards site, however, doing these activities can now turn into a money-making pursuit for those looking to make a quick buck. And who doesn’t want that?
GiftHulk is just one of the many online rewards sites that promise to compensate users for watching videos, playing games, surfing the web, and answering surveys. As for the compensation itself, well, it’s a topic worth investigating deeper. So let’s take a closer look at GiftHulk and review it thoroughly to see if it’s indeed a legit way to make money, or if it’s a scam.
First things first - what is it?
As a rewards and small task website, GiftHulk offers its members multiple ways to earn a unique currency called Hulk Coins. In order to earn these, you can use GiftHulk Search as your everyday search engine, complete some surveys, refer people to their program, take advantage of daily offers, shop online, or simply watch videos.
The creators of the site also launched an app called Tapporo for both iOS and Android users, which looks to be the mobile version of GiftHulk.
How long has it been around?
GiftHulk was established in 2011 with the founders aiming to reward people for doing ordinary online activities like viewing ads and reviewing products and services. It is currently available to users worldwide.
Does it pay well?
It pays primarily in Hulk Coins and gift cards, if that’s something you find useful and interesting. We all have different takes on getting “paid well”, but personally, I prefer getting extra income in cold hard cash instead of a virtual currency.
With that said, members can redeem their earned Hulk Coins for gift cards to their favorite retailers. There is a five-tier system (from bronze to diamond) which encourages members to climb higher levels for more perks and rebates. Steam, Amazon , and Walmart are just some of the more popular retailers that have partnered up with GiftHulk.
Hulk Coins are also convertible via Paypal Cash and even bitcoins, according to your preference. The way it’s looking, there are plenty of small doable tasks available, and lots of ways to earn prizes and Hulk Coins on the menu.
Is registration free?
Yes, absolutely free. Joining requires no sign-up fees. You will just need a username, password, and verifiable address to register for an account.
How do I start earning extra income from GiftHulk?
If someone referred you to GiftHulk, you can use the referral code when you sign up and it will instantly give you 250 Hulk Coins to your account. You in turn can also get 5% from referral earnings.
You can choose to watch GiftHulk TV, which comes with a progress bar so you can see how much you’ve earned after viewing full videos. Or you can use the GiftHulk Search engine feature in your daily browsing. Members are also matched with surveys and offers you need to complete in order to earn more Hulk Coins. You can also opt to do tasks either from GiftHulk or CrowdFlower.
There is a Guess the Card game where you could win Hulk Coins right away. You get five free chips a day to play the game, but there’s an option to buy more chips using Hulk Coins (kind of a not good way to earn, IMHO). As with these games, it’s always by chance and luck so I wouldn’t recommend that you spend too much time on it.
Gift cards are redeemable after 7 business days. The process can be speeded up, though - you just have to work your way into becoming a high-level user in accordance with GiftHulk’s tiered incentive system.
What kind of gift cards are available on GiftHulk?
To underline its legitimacy, GiftHulk has a page dedicated to its array of partner retailers, and the most popular ones redeemed by members. The categories include dining, fashion, gaming, toys, department stores, traveling, online shopping, sports, entertainment, beauty, and furniture. Macy’s, Lowe’s, PayPal, and Amazon currently seem to be the most widely redeemed cards (the member name is indicated along with how much the card or cash was redeemed).
I would confidently say that GiftHulk is legit, given its thoughtful tier system that incentivizes active loyal users of the site to have their earnings processed faster, plus higher rebates on prize purchases as they climb up the tier. Compared to other online rewards site, there seem to be more task options and activities available to its members, too.
Sadly, if you’re looking to earn some cash fast because you need it ASAP, GiftHulk might not be the best fit for you (a dollar is equivalent to 1,000 Hulk Coins). There is a way to make real cash from their virtual currency (via PayPal payment), but it will take some time for it to accumulate into something you can actually use.
