One they dont want to fix something that should be easy to fix...."just reissue a gift card", they want me to spend more time trying to get back what should be there in the first place . The credit card company cant do anything unless you find out about it in their 90 day limit. That doesnt usually happen as most gift card recepients dont use it right away. They might not even feel close enough to the giver to let them know it didnt work...just imagine how many gifts dont reach the recipient.
Cash is all well and good, but it’s good to have a range of options and we also offer the possibility of doing surveys for gift cards. Whether you want to treat yourself or that friend or family member who’s always tricky to buy for, completing surveys for gift cards is a quick and easy method for doing so. It’s not just small or little-known brands either - have you heard of Amazon or iTunes?
InstaGC does what it sounds like – helps you earn instant gift cards! They reward you for online activities like taking surveys, shopping through their online portal, watching videos, and searching the web. You can redeem your points for gift cards from their 360 partners, including Amazon. Digital delivery is instant, so no waiting to enjoy your rewards.
But more importantly, Bing rewards you if you use it enough. With your Microsoft account, you can enroll in the Bing Rewards program (totally free) to start collecting points as you search. You get one point for every two searches, up to 15 points per day from your computer and up to 10 per day from your phone. (That’s right, change your search engine there too.) You can also complete a quick search quiz every day to earn an additional three points and complete other minor tasks for bonuses.
When you rack up enough points, you can redeem prizes. A $5 Amazon gift card is worth 525 points, though if you level up by performing enough searches, this drops down to 475 points which has been my rate for years. Many other gift cards and prizes are available too: Starbucks gift cards, ad-free Outlook.com, Xbox Live Gold membership, GameStop gift cards, Hulu gift cards and more.
PointsPrizes delivered a working Steam wallet code in exchange for 3,000 points that I accumulated over several weeks. Though it took slightly more than a week to process my claim, the important thing is that they kept the promise, so the site is legit. I had a few problems with some external survey sites that kicked me out just before completing a survey after investing like 15 to 20 minutes (happened twice) and about 2 or 3 others that somehow failed to credit despite the survey being completed. But most of the time, it gets properly credited, and eventually you can reach the target if you are persistent enough despite constant survey rejections. The only thing you have to decide is whether you are prepared to invest the amount of time needed (if you rely on surveys).
