Here in the Frugality Is Free family our gift budget is basically non-existent, and with four kids I have learned that creativity goes a long way. One way that I am able to find great gifts for all of our four kids as well as nieces and nephews is by earning gift cards online.

We have several online earnings sits and apps that we use for this purpose, but today I want to tell you about InstaGC. Insta GC is essentially just like Swagbucks. It is a bit harder to navigate, but the earning opportunities are more or less the same, and the best part is that I can have videos running in Swagbucks in one tab and videos running at Insta GC at a second tab….all while I’m working on the blog or doing my writing. All it takes is a click once in a while… You can watch videos, do offers, search, and much more.

If you are a fan of Swagbucks, I highly encourage you to check out Insta GC. If you have yet to sign up for Swagbucks, I say go sign up for both!


Check out our InstaGC and online earnings guide below:

How To Earn Gift Cards With InstaGC:

  • Sign up at InstaGC here (This is our referral link, if you sign up through our link, we will earn 10% off what you earn)
  • You have to sign up with a real name and a real address, or you will not be able to get your redeem. I tried signing up with my usual online sign up name, and apparently it was not real enough. With that said, you don’t have to use your real name and your real address, because the gift cards are sent via email. I always advise against using your real info due to the risk of identity fraud.
  • When you first redeem for a gift card, you have to use your real phone number, because you will be sent a code you need to enter to verify that you’re a real person.
  • Once you redeem for your gift card, you will receive it instantly. If it is an Amazon gift card, I recommend that you put it in your Amazon account, immediately so you do not forget about it.
  • If you have a problem with redeeming for a gift card, submit a help ticket, and you will receive quick help in your inbox.

How To Earn Points At InstaGC:

  • After you sign up, you will receive an email from InstaGC to confirm your email. Once you’ve verified your email, you will receive a welcome email from Insta GC. This email will have a link to the InstaGC Quick STart Guide. I recommend that you add this page to your bookmark toolbar, as it is a good starting point, every time you log into Insta GC.

  • You can set a goal gift card in the top right corner, and you will see your point continue to grow until you reach your redemption goal.  Redemptions start at $1!



I am so excited to have found another online earnings site like Swagbucks, and the instant gift cards really makes InstaGC a great site to use. So start saving for Christmas… Make sure to check out the Earn Money Online tab in the top navigation bar for more earning opportunities.

  1. This looks good to me. You can do things to earn reward points.

  2. I have been doing Swagbucks for years, and I really like it, so I’d be interested to try out another site like it. Thanks for the info!

  3. […] Earned $10 in Amazon Gift Cards at InstaGC […]

  4. I signed up for InstaGC a few months back and have earned $30-40 so far in amazon gift cards – gets quite frustrating after a while though when you get kicked out of a bunch of surveys!

  5. you might want to read a few more reviews, wish I would have, this site has a bad habit of banning people for hacking, they did the same thing to me, they get paid, don’t you, accuse you of hacking, I have no clue how to hack anything, so if you do it withdraw you money quickly, eventually you will get banned.

  6. I have never heard of either of these websites. Its good to know that you can get paid for watching adds. It might help with the expense of Christmas quickly approaching.
