GiftHulk is a new rewards application that people can download in order to get paid a supplemental income for doing the same types of activities that they would normally do on a daily basis.
Rewards sites are not new, and are generally considered a legit way of earning money or prizes online. Companies like SwagBucks and ZoomBucks have been rewarding customers for allowing them to monitor their online behavior and completing special tasks for years.
These reward sites allow members to watch videos, play games, complete surveys, and search online in exchange for earning Hulk Coins. Some of these activities, like searching the web, you will do on your own; others, such as survey taking or video watching, you may be asked to do by GiftHulk.
You can also earn Hulk Coins by referring new members to this service. Between your referral opportunities and the activities available for completion from their “RewardBox,” GiftHulk promises that their will be no end to your ability to earn.
GiftHulk also hosts a wide variety of sweepstakes and other opportunities to “win” extra cash and prizes through their application, and their website says that they have awarded over $1,000,000 in rewards since 2011.
Once you have earned your Hulk Coins, you can go to their online store and redeem your coins for a wide variety of prizes and gift cards – your choice. Different prizes will require different amounts of coins in order to redeem.
GiftHulk promises that any prize or card you order, however, will be sent to you in seven days or less, with no payment required for quick shipping.
Signing up to be a member of this rewards community is completely free, and you can sign up for membership using your Facebook account, Google Plus account, or Twitter account. Members who prefer to not sign up with their social networking accounts can also just offer an active email address.

13 ‘GiftHulk’ Reviews
More or less the same exact thing happened to me as with Tlwin, above. I have been waiting over a year now for two $5 Amazon Gift Cards and don't expect I will ever get them. Bad site that will steal your time, and even tho you are working for pennies an hour they will steal that too.
I joined Gifthulk not all that long ago. At first I thought I was never going to get enough points to get anything. It is most certainly a marathon instead of a sprint. If you are patient, you will prevail. I was able to get enough points for my first "freebie". Once I got that, well then I had to keep on going. I guess at that point I was hooked.
What JM posted above is great advice. Follow it. There were a few times when I first started out I did not get credit and since I did not have a screenshot, and there was no email verification with some movies or whatever, I was not rewarded. So, I did learn the hard way, screenshots, screenshots, screenshots. On almost all cases if you have a screenshot and/or email verification, you will be awarded the points if you put in a support ticket. A secondary email is a must because some of the surveys you take that you must sign up for, sell your email. You WILL be spammed to death.
There were a few times that I had been rewarded points and then they were taken away. So far 2,000 coins were awarded then taken back. They were from the site that you took the survey that took them back. Reward them, then take them back, bad business to me. Gifthulk should remove those companies. Sometimes you sit for hours doing these surveys and to have the coins removed, well frankly it sucks. However, I did on both times send a support ticket. I depends on the admin at Gifthulk you get to answer. On the one ticket, they did reward me back 200 coins. On the other one, nothing. So I lost 1,800 coins. Wasn't all that happy.
Overall I do like Gifthulk. I was a member of Swagbucks, which I don't like. I was not rewarded some points. Did the ticket thing. They said they added the points, yet my overall total points did not reflect the change. The girl argued with me and basically called me a liar. I immediately deleted the account. It was 15 points!!!
If you are patient and have time to kill, I would say give Gifthulk a try. They do have some of the better rewards out there. The giftcards/ecards are great. I have used one already with no problem.
Hope this helps.
Fake reward site?
I joined GiftHulk and earned enough points for a giftcard, but they ask for my personal information before they will pay out (if they would at all). I'm concerned about what they would do with that information and don't feel safe giving it to them. There are much better reward sites out there, so skip this one.
Fake / Too restrictive
I followed all the instructions and made a genuine purchase for $13 from the advertiser which would give me 10,000 coins. Gifthulk put it on hold and asked for my state ID for security verification. After having received the ID, they said "Due to the feedback from the advertiser we're not able to release your gift from security. "
I am like W.T.F!!!!!!
Avoid using this site.
Not a good site, personally
I'm a college student that's currently unemployed but actively trying to find a job. I've decided to try out Swagbucks, InstaGC, Prizerebel, Bing Rewards, and Gifthulk.
I would spend grueling long hours to get points to save up to pay for tuition and daily expenses. (As I'm writing this, it's summer 2014 so I'm on vacation period) I happened to earn over 35,000 gifthulk points, so $35 in real life currency within four-three months. Well, I tried to redeem my Paypal rewards but I have yet to get them. It's been over a month and I've sent multiple support tickets regrading my rewards redemption. Each stating: "You have been sent an e-mail from our Security team regarding this issue. Please reply to it, HelpDesk Support can’t deal with Security issues." However, I would never ever get any emails from the Security Team. Subsequently, I've sent a ticket on changing my email and then another one asking for Security to try emailing me again to resolve the issue. Instead, I get "You have been caught using a proxy, which is against our ToS, we have zero tolrance against such actions." Which is /not/ true as I've been busting my carpal tunnel syndrome ridden hands trying to earn that measly $35 bucks. I'm currently sending ANOTHER ticket about it as they've closed each ticket I had without really resolving the issues.-_-
TL;DR BEWARE OF GIFTHULK. It's a very shoddy site. I recommend Swagbucks, Bings Reward, an InstaGC. Currently trying to work my way up to my first reward at PrizeRebel.
Slow and steady wins the race
I have just collected $5 from GiflHulk after just under a week! And I have almost enough for $5 again after days. Agree with other reviews that you have to be careful - I fell for the Virtual bee! but if you are careful you can earn a lot of coins and not get overwhelmed with all the downloads.
I joined gifthulk earlier this year, and I had earned over 6000 points. I ordered a giftcard for my son the end of April, verified the order and waited. No one contacted me after two weeks. I emailed them for someone to email me back and say that they needed a copy of my photo id to process the order. I have used swagbucks for years and have never been asked for this. When I questioned them ob it and asked for someone to call me, I was told that my account would be locked until I sent them what they wanted and for me not to worry my information was safe. I have heard that before. Cancelled order and account. Customer beware, they do not pay if they can get away with it.
It's similar w/ other sites as far as the types of offers available and maybe slightly above average for the ratio of activity to compensation. It has the same issues of other reward sites w/ downloads adding on lots of malware etc, and many rewards, mostly third party ones through "Matomy," "Radium One," and others not working the majority of the time.
They can be a bit sketchy with the points and rewards though - I've received a used gift card code before that took about 3 weeks to resolve, and had points deducted for doing things I did not do. I don't expect this to happen to everyone, but I've used plenty of rewards sites before and with many of them I have not had such issues with.
So many other sites...
So many better ones out there.. I use alot of survey sites, also sites like Swagbucks which I do about $50-75 a month using.. Its all very time consuming so you have to isolate the real ones from the garbage other wise you walk away thinking its all a scam.. I do surveys with a site called opinion outpost? I make about $50-100 a month.. It doesnt pay as well as a real job if you narrow it down to a few sites that offer what you like and you understand its not a get rich scheme youll be ok..
drop me an email- would love to exchange ideas.. been at this for 6 months now and the only scam is its very time consuming.., you dont make alot for your time.. gluck..
Good site if you are careful
This site has been very good for me, as I have claimed $120 in PayPal payments from using it in just over 2 months. So I have to respectfully disagree with the negative reviews of others.
If you violate their TOS, you can and will be banned. If you are greedy and only go after the high reward offers on the Offers Wall and The EZ Coins, you will find alot of offers that require a download and installation. And most of these downloads contain a ton of crappy other stuff tacked on to the installation package. AVOID the Virtual Bee Offer... it contains a maintained extension that attaches itself to your browser, and CANNOT be uninstalled, despite what the vendor and website for this app say. It will pop up ads EVERYWHERE, and the only way to get rifd of it is to do a System Restore to a date long before you installed it, and full CCleaner cleaning, reboot and pray. Yes, I found this out the hard way.
Since then I have been very selective in what Offers I complete, and yes, most of them require you to register for a site and confirm your e-mail. Tips-
1) Max out GH TV every day for 400 Hulk Coins per day
2) SCREENSHOT everything, and DO NOT delete e-mail from offers/companies until you have been credited. Gift Hulk Support WILL work with you, but support for things on Offer Walls and Easy Coins are generally dealt with by the vendors who have them listed. And ALL of them will want screenshots of EVERYTHING to credit you.
3) Third party cookies must be enabled in your browser to get credit for most offers.
4) USE A SECONDARY E-MAIL for this site, as your inbox will get filled up with mail from the offers you complete and any of the vendors "Partners". Yes, you can unsubscribe from most of them, but it takes time.
BE SMART. Don't let greed guide you, and be careful what offers you complete. And then you too can get high rewards like I do, without infesting your PC with some of the nasty stuff that the Offer Walls contain.
I joined Gifthulk a few months ago, earning up to a little over 20,000 points until I got (possibly) Banned from the site for no apparent reason. Everytime I go to the site it says "Sorry, but we are not accepting members from your country". Oh, so it's saying that it's not accepting members from America? I sent a message to them through email and through facebook and through both I was ignored.
THEY KEEP WANTING YOU TO FILL OUT ALL THESE OFFERS, FOR "COINS", BUT WHEN YOU COMPLETE MOST TASKS, THERE IS A DOWNLOAD, GOOD THING I HAVE GREAT ANTI-VIRUS. i REMEMBER READING THAT SMALLER LESSER KNOWN COMPANIES, NOT ALL, LIKE TO SHOVE OTHER DOWNLOADS WITH WHAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE GETTING, SO YOUR WHOLE COMPUTER GETS MESSED UP. THATS ALL I WANTED TO SAY, STAY AWAY UNLESS REPUTABLE SURVEY BUSINESS.
