How to Earn From InstaGC:
There are many ways to earn from this site. Although InstaGC is available in all the countries most of the earning opportunities are geo-targeted so you might get fewer tasks or less pay for the same task depending on your country.
Generally, users from more developed countries get higher paying and more earning opportunities.
Ways to Earn from InstaGC:
In this section, you can earn points by installing apps on your mobile.
However, some apps need you to follow further instructions to get your points and usually pay more. For example; some app-offers may require you to make an in-app purchase or reach a certain level.
To complete these offers click on the offer and enter your email address. Then click the link in the email and install the app and follow the instructions.
Search the Web:
This is one of the easiest ways to make money with InstaGC. With InstaGC’s search the web feature you can earn points for what you already do.
The search results won’t be exactly the same as Google or Bing but it’ll still be relevant. But you won’t be earning for every search you do. Points are randomly awarded for your searches
It’s the same as Swagbucks’ search but Swagbucks search is simply yahoo search results with sponsored content from SB. So, in that department Swagbucks has InstaGC beat. Actually, Swagbucks is better than InstaGC.
And like Swagbucks, ‘InstaGC search the web’ isn’t available for all the countries. It is only available in the select few countries including US, UK, Australia, and Canada.
Some important tips
- Only make genuine searches.
- Click results that you’re interested in.
- In other words, use this like any other search engine.
- Abusing the search will result in ban.
Surveys are a great way to earn points on InstaGC. But most of the time before the actual survey you need to take a ‘qualification’ survey. And even then there’s no guarantee that you won’t be kicked out in the middle because the survey ‘’wasn’t for you’’. This is the part that annoys me the most. If I’m being disqualified at least give me some damn compensation for the time I spent. But they just get away with a ‘’sorry’’.
Another way to earn some points without any effort. But that also means you’ll earn very less. Less than a penny per video.
You can earn 1 penny for 3-10 videos. Before each video, an ad is played and each video is a couple minute long so it’s gonna take a while before you even earn 1 point.
It is like sweepstakes.
You can enter into Decimal pot by depositing fraction points or decimal points. For example, if you have 190.67 points you can deposit .67 to the decimal pot and stand a chance to win big. Since only decimals are deposited you are not risking too much.
The system randomly selects 3 winners and split the prize pot as follows:1st prize = 50%, 2nd prize = 35%, 3rd prize = 15%.
Point Booster Codes:
You can also redeem point booster codes that are published on the social media pages of InstaGC. You can enter these codes on the Redeem Point-Booster Codes page and earn a few points. This pretty much works like PrizeRebel except the fact that to be able to redeem these codes you or one of your referrals must receive credit for at least one task in the past 5 days in order to redeem a point booster code.
You can also create your own point booster codes and choose the amount of points that will be given per use and the number of times the code can be used.
Offers are the main way to earn with any GPT site and InstaGC is no exception. There are many offer providers that pay you for signing up, shopping, playing games etc.
There are also some offers that require you to buy something or need your credit/debit card information. Don’t attempt these offers unless you trust the site where you’re making the payment and you need the item or service.
For every friend that signs up through your referral link, you both get 10 Points. And you’ll also earn 10% of their earnings forever. Earnings do not include bonuses(sign up bonus, promo code,etc.).
You will only receive 10 points for the sign up of those referrals that are from these countries: United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. However, all your referrals will get the sign-up bonus, no matter their geographical region.
Like I said at the beginning of this review, InstaGC is available for all countries, So it has different gift cards for every country. You can redeem your points for gift cards like Amazon, Steam,1-800-Flowers.com, Apple Store and much more.
You can also redeem your points for cash through PayPal. The minimum amount that you can redeem is $1=100 points. For PayPal withdrawals, a fee of 20 percent of the amount redeemed is charged but the first withdrawal is free of charge.
instaGC is a great way to earn a few bucks every month by completing simple tasks and surveys. And if you are from US, UK, Australia or Canada you could earn more. But remember you won’t earn a substantial amount from these sites. Sites like InstaGC are only good for extra income, not income.
It would have been great to have an app too but unfortunately, InstaGC does not have its app yet.
