InstaGC, found online at InstaGC.com, is a new rewards website which gives their members the ability to perform tasks in exchange for points, which they can then redeem for cash or prizes.
According to their website, their members have redeemed 76,651 gift cards so far since they were established, though if you would prefer a check rather than a gift card, the website says their members also have that option.
In order to earn points from InstaGC, you can fill out free offers, watch videos, download games, invite friends, or win contests and promotions. Their website stresses the fact that you do not need to ever make a purchase in order to earn points.
100 points earned on this site is equivalent to $1. Some of the gift cards they offer on the website are for values as low as $1, while others can be valued as high as $100, with many different valuations in between.
Once you are ready to redeem your points for a gift card, you can choose from their gift card library that features major retailers such as Amazon.com, Target, GameStop, eBay, Walmart, Old Navy, T-Mobile, and many more.
In order to sign up, all you must do is choose a Username, a Password, and enter your current active email address. When you sign up, you will automatically be rewarded with 10 free points.
When working with a rewards website like InstaGC or Swagbucks, you must be very careful to protect yourself. First, whenever you choose to “complete an offer” – which is the task that usually carries the highest rewards – you must be very careful to read all the terms and conditions so that you know how to proceed appropriately without getting charged.
Also, these sites work very hard to protect themselves against hacks – if you do a general search of their company, you will see many people looking for codes and point boosters. Usually if a rewards site feels as though you are behaving improperly, they will cancel your account and you will be unable to redeem any of your past points.

Why is it doing this?
I am a 13 and I got scammed. I saved up for over a week and referred 2 friends. I was so happy when I got 100 points for amazon. Then they locked up my account for no reason. I asked why and they said that there was a username similar to mine. Then they asked for an ID but since I am 13 I don't have one. They just ignored me. I was so happy but now it is just sad. My username is omarhammad
I was scammed by this PO.S Site!
Reading the reviews, it's pretty consistent. Once you cross a certain level odds are they will accuse you of fraud. And you'll have to jump through hopes to get your measly gift card.
I think it's a terrible business model to basically rip off a certain portion of their users. So if you take one survey and you really aren't shopping for a new car, that's a reason for them to take all the money you made from filling out offers, watching videos, doing tasks, that made up 99 percent of your earnings. Of course after they think you commit 'fraud' they'll let you continue to earn for them it's only until you try to cash out that they'll accuse you and then demand personal information almost equivalent to what you give when you're buying your first home. All for a gift card that you're supposed to get 'instantly'. What a joke.
InstaGC is pretty freaking awesome
I am very shocked that there is so much negative reviews on this site! This site has given me so much amazon gift cards, it's amazing, i have redeemed 63 amazon giftcards so far :) easy to earn by doing surveys that are 100+. Great site.
You should listen to your customers before accusing them
InstaGC, I love your website, I love the idea. But I hate your customer service. Not everyone is trying to scam or cheat you. You have blocked my account based on a mistaken misunderstanding. I worked so hard to earn those points and I was so excited to finally reach my goal and to redeem for something I long awaited. The funny thing is that the problem in question occurred way before I tried redeeming my reward, thats why I continued wasting my time taking surveys. Why was my account locked only at the time of redemption? Your customer service isn't ready to listen to me, they do not respond, I am being ignored now. I am ready to verify myself, I have explained why the problem occurred in detailed, I said it was a misunderstanding and a mistake. But no, all my efforts went to waste. You need to stop thinking everyone who has suspicious activity on their account is doing it on purpose. You can keep my hard earned money and points. But, I will be sure to spread the word on how you treat your customers. Andrew, your owner says everyone who posts a bad review is committing fraud, no, its not that, you just think everyone is committing fraud and its a way for you to save from paying out.

My daughter who joined this site in which the phone was verified which seemed all good...Then the support comes back saying if she opened up other accounts in the past...which the answer is no....She has had a friend that did this site that is about it....From the looks of reading all these blogs about this site they are going to ask for an ID which is great...No problem but what is the use of sending it in if they ending up rejecting it according to other reviews....Come on now what kind of motives are these.....
