Default GiftHulk (similar to Swagbucks)

GiftHulk is another "Search and win" website that you can use.

If you've looked before and didn't like it or you're a member that haven't used it for a while, take another look because it's changed now and so have the redemption levels.

Ways to earn
fountain of youth codes - mostly on toolbar now (i haven't installed this though) or can be won through search
Searches - you can win amazon vouchers, discounts, hulk coins etc (it's a bit wierd!, lol)
daily poll - some questions are wierd but worth 1 HC

Offer Walls
Wall 1 - Radium One
Wall 2 - Matomy
Wall 3 - Payment Wall ???
Wall 4 - Trial Pay
Wall 5 - Super Rewards
Wall 6 - Volume 11
Wall 7 - Supersonic
Wall 8 - Peanut Labs
Wall 9 - Sponsor Pay

Treasure Box - Everyone has 5 keys to use each day and you can win HC, amazon gift cards, bonus codes, discounts, more daily keys and permanent keys

I do wonder if it could be worthwhile to use a different email address for this site in order to double up on some offers

Paypal $5 = was 169 coins ... now 599 coins
Paypal $10 = was 269 coins ... now 1149 coins
Paypal $25 = was 499 coins ... now 2750 coins
Paypal $50 = was n/a ... now 5400 coins

I'll add Amazon details later as I think I've got a discount or something on my account at the moment

As a result of the upgrade, GiftHulk will be temporarily available only for users (old and new) from:
1. USA
2. Canada
3. UK
4. Ireland
5. Australia
6. New Zealand

This is a good site, and I've earned amazon vouchers in only a couple of months, doing really very little.

But - definately use a unique email address though would be my advice.

I have one that is only used for this and Swagbucks. Got settings down fairly tight, but still get weekly junk emails numbering well into the hundreds.

Yeah, some offers on all the "search and win" sites are spam type ones

Hi Cally, thanks for this as I've never heard of it before and not used. Is there a referrals thread, or could you pm me? or does it not work like that?

I've joined gift hulk but am having trouble with the payment system, they reward you sometimes with $1 amazon.com giftcard, i'm on amazon uk so how will this work?
Running total for swagbucks - 270 since Jan
Running total for superpoints -

Someone's asked about that on the facebook page and I believe that the answer was that if you were in the UK, you'd get an amazon.co.uk gift card

I haven't had the pleasure of that one yet though

Getting annoyed now.

Wall 1 - Radium One - Surveys

Permission Research - Quick and Easy.
Register now!
No purchase required to receive Hulk Coins within 5-30 minutes.
Hulk Coins awarded after completing registration and seeing the "thank you" page!.

Registered, went to add the software (not mentioned at the start), to find it had to abort as it was not compatible with my current internet connection settings

Wall 2 - Matomy - Surveys

Prize Daily
Earn 28 Hulk Coins . Hulk Coins awarded once a valid registration has been completed

Registered, page two says you must complete an offer so did one for prize draw for toysrus, page three says you must complete an offer ... I thought screw that and clicked off

Wall 2 - Matomy - Surveys - This one just credited !!

Cashback Research
Earn 48 Hulk Coins . Hulk Coins awarded once you have filled out your details, completed the email verification process and the survey has been successfully completed

Registered, completed email verification, completed one mini profile survey, registered for another company to activate daily surveys ... Still no points
Updated (20-07) to add - Signed up for the unique rewards panel, took some time for their email verification email to come through, logged in, clicked a couple of "pay to click" offers, it triggered in the cashback research that i'd joined so I was able to click a daily survey link (i was dsq from it) but it was enough to trigger me getting the 48 hulk coins


I've worked out that to get a $5 paypal each week, you need to earn 86 hulk coins per day. Hmm, rather hard if nothing crediting.

I need 79 more today

20:40pm - Found two video lurking in Wall 9, under Registration

21:33pm - Wall 5
Play Call of Gods, Win an Ipad!
Ninjawaz, Showdown between Naruto vs. Bleach < this one could be on facebook
Legends of Xian, the No.1 Best Asian RPG Game for 3 years!
Fantasy of Swords, very unique game you don't want to miss!
These above are from same company, can't work out how to confirm email address and one I signed up for through facebook, allowed it, took me back to first one I signed up, bit wierd

Play Call of Roma! - has credited for 10

think I've got more of a hang of the searches now: I have to clear all my cookies, otherwise I get nowhere, I may run GH on IE and save firefox for sb.

I had one this morning (7 i think) and one just now (6, or vice versa), both the first search after clearing cookies - coincidence?

Not attempted any surveys yet, and am only looking at those offer walls that either aren't on sb, or you get a better rate on gh than sb.

something has just credited for 10 from wall 5, but I've tried 4 offers can't work out which one it is! (online games). on the EZ coins, I've only tried the flight checker one for 6 which credited imediately.

other than that it's just been videos + daily poll (keys have given nothing today) - I'm on 104.5 (the 0.5 is from a second view of a vid on wall 2 apparently!).

a slow start, but that's how it was for me with sb at first, don't think this is going to make me rich, but hopefully it will be a good 2nd to sb (I don't get on well with superpoints so could do with something to take over once I've finally cashed in and thrown in the towel).

yep I can't see me devoting a great deal of time to it, just the easy wins: vids, daily polls, search etc and watching it build up, there's a few software idiosyncracies that are a little annoying for me too (the drop-down loists disappear as soon as I try to click on them - attempting to see my points a on the far RHS drop down is definitely upping my hand-eye co-ordination and response times!)

Yes, that menu bugs me as well.

I'll post a complaint about it and see if they can change it
