What Is Gift Hunter Club? Is This A Worthwhile Survey Panel?
I’m amazed that I only just discovered this website, considering the amount of related sites that I have reviewed.
This is another of what I call an “all-rounder,” – because it’s not just a survey site, you can also earn points in other ways too.
Such as via watching videos, completing mini tasks, completing cash offers and more.
So, until now, this site slipped through the net for me. But it does share similarities with Swagbucks.
Gift Hunter Club Review In Brief:
Name: Gift Hunter Club.
Money Making Opportunity: pocket money.
Overall score: 70/100 I’ve seen plenty of good feedback about this site. There are a bunch of ways you can make money and good for a bit of fun. It’s easy to navigate and understand. However, you will only make pocket change here, but if you join a few similar sites, it all adds up. You can sign up for free here.
Gift Hunter Club – First Impressions:
One of the best things I noticed right away about this site, is that you can cash out from just $2 via paypal, ($10 via Amazon).
note: I’m in the UK, you can still withdraw in dollars and exchange via to pounds inside paypal, there is also a Euro option and Canadian dollar.
They also have an Amazon vouchers with USA, UK, Spain and Canada options.
Similar sites are just now catching up to the idea that a lower payout threshold is much better.
There was a time where you’d need to make $20 or even $50 prior to being able to cash out anything with some surveys sites.
This meant that a majority of people signing up, where just not getting paid.
Because a majority who sign up to sites like this get bored and give up with it very quickly.
With a lower payout threshold, it keeps more people motivated to at least get to their first payout.
This can only be a good thing for both the creators and the sign ups!
I found the intro page really quite cute. I liked being confronted by these little monsters below:
It’s very simple to sign up too, you just enter your email address and then choose a username and password.
You’re transferred to their main dashboard right away, where you can start earning points immediately.
The main homepage is appealing to look at and super simple to navigate.
To the left of the main homepage, is a menu for you to explore. The top drop down menu shows you ways that you can earn points.
Ways You Can Earn At Gift Hunter Club:
Cash offers will pay you a certain amount of points to complete a task – this is often something like, signing up to a free offer, giveaway, or mailing list.
There may also be offers where you need to pay something – such as sign up and deposit a certain amount in a casino and receive cash back.
You need to be careful with cash offers and check the T&C’s, because sometimes they can charge you after a trial ends, or there may be certain conditions you need to fulfil.
Additionally, you can also get SPAM mail by signing up with certain companies, so be careful which check boxes you’re ticking!
If you don’t mind these factors, completing cash offers can reward you with the most points on this website.
Online Paid Surveys
Online surveys are one of the better known ways to earn money online.
In this case, there are a whole bunch of surveys that are brought to you by various providers.
That means, to complete them each time, you’ll be redirected to another website.
You’ll be able to see how many points the surveys are worth, although I could not see how long each one would take prior to checking through to the provider.
The first time I had to answer a bunch of screening questions, before being told that I qualified for 10 surveys – all taking approximately 8-10 minutes.
After another few questions however, I was redirected to 4 different surveys ranging from 8-18 minutes.
Naturally, I went for the shortest survey and ended up getting chucked off for not fulling their criteria.
This is just extremely common, (and frustrating) reality with a majority of online surveys.
You spend most of the time just trying to get accepted for a survey – and then when you finally do, you may have only made a few cents.
What Do The Points Mean?
Points = Cash or Vouchers.
How much the points are worth, will be dependent on your particular country.
For example,you need 1030 in the USA to redeem $10 Amazon, in the UK it’s 1690 and in Canada it’s 940.
For $2 USA you need 250 points. Which you could achieve in the first day – say if you did a cash offer and a couple of surveys.
For some cash offers, you can earn more than 250 points, but those will usually not be free offers.
Some people love the watch-video features on these sites, but you hardly get anything for it.
You’ll only get half a point, or up to 2 points per video.
If you don’t watch the entire video, you won’t get paid, so if you do choose to watch them, bear that in mind.
I’ve tended to ignore these in the past, because they’ve often seemed like a fair amount of effort, for minimal reward.
Also, on other sites they tended to be few and far between.
But, I did quite enjoy my task on this occasion…
For my task, I spent around 20 minutes checking websites, to see if they contained articles and do confirm the authors name.
After the task, I was awarded with 8 points. Clearly not much for the amount of time spent, but I believe this was quite low and you can get more.
In order to complete tasks, you also need to sign up to crowdfire – this is easy to do and they walk you through it.
You can also earn points by listening to the radio. You need to listen to 10 minutes of radio, before a captcha pops up and for each one that comes up, you will get half a point.
Not something I’d waste time on personally – but if you you like listening to the radio anyway, then it’s not any effort.
Referring Friends & Family:
Gift Hunter Club also have a referral program – this means that once you refer your friends and family, you can earn 10% of anything they earn.
There is also a referral competition each month – there are three prizes. 1st recently won $35 worth of points, 2nd $22 and 3rd $10.
Your referral will not be considered as valid, until they’ve earned 50 points.
If you have a blog, YouTube channel, or large social media following – you could potentially do well with referrals.

Is Something Missing?
Unfortunately, Gift Hunter Club lacks two of the things I find most useful over at Swagbucks.
The first being the pay-to-search option. At Swagbucks, you can earn points just by surfing the web and they will be awarded randomly at different times.
The second is cash back offers – while Gift Hunter Club does have cash offers and some of them could also be considered as cashback, they don’t provide the same variety.
Getting cashback is a useful and easy way to earn points, because you’re just shopping online buying what you were already going to anyway.
Aside from that, they had all the things you’d expect from a similar site.
PROS VS CONS
- Easy to navigate website, with visual appeal.
- Low cash-out threshold.
- A variety of ways to earn money online.
- A variety of rewards you can choose to redeem your points.
- A reasonable referral program.
- A phone App available.
- Not as much choice of rewards as some websites.
- Found I was being chucked off the surveys I attempted from other providers.
- A bit frustrating not to be able to complete some surveys on site, rather than sent away to other websites.
- Not the variety of offers, nor the pay-to-search feature of Swagbucks.
If you’re into trying out survey-related sites, then this is definitely a legit one that you should check out.
By having a few decent ones that you do enjoy visiting, you will have more opportunities to make a little extra on the side. c
It was a nice surprise to find this site, because it’s certainly a lot better than many out there I’ve reviewed.
There are a variety of ways you can earn and you can cash out from a low amount.
It’s just important that you don’t go in with false expectations – sometimes you will see reviews telling you that you can make thousands of dollars per month, just by completing surveys.
That is false information – if you dedicate some time to this site, you may make $10 or so per week, but rarely more.
But, if you’re willing to make the effort to make more money online, it is possible to make good money. Whether that’s just a couple of hundred dollars a month… right up to a full-time income and more.
I started trying to make money online from scratch and ended up completely lost – until I found somewhere I could learn the basics.
What’s been your experience so far, of survey-related websites?
