GCLoot will reward you within 48 hours simply by completing daily tasks, such as playing games, completing surveys and watching videos. The website is operated by Reward Holdings Limited, a Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Singapore registered company, and was founded in 2020. This is the same company that operates the very reputable Grabpoints and Zoombucks website.
Yes, it’s like the many survey-like sites out there, but the biggest difference with GCLoot is that they focus primarily on “gaming” rewards, such as free PSN gift cards, Steam gift cards, Vbucks and much more. Picture your in-game currency, such as Roblox, Dota2 and World of Warcraft, to name a few. If you’re into gaming and you’re looking for a particular gaming card, you may find that they will have it, whereas other companies may not.
In today’s review, I talk about my experience with GCLoot. Is it legit? Is it a scam? Is it worth your time? These are all of the questions I can help answer.
As in all of my reviews, I’m 100% honest, only recommending what I feel is worth your time. Let’s begin!
How GCLoot Works
If you’re familiar with any sites such as Swagbucks or Superpay.me, then GCLoot isn’t much different. In fact, many of the “offerwalls” they work with can be found on the many companies I promote on this site as well as my YouTube channel.
At the moment, you can earn in one of four ways: playing games, completing surveys, doing offers or watching videos. As they note, “Advertisers will pay them for engagement and they then recruit members like you to complete these said actions.” Nothing new here. The premise is simple in that you read the instructions and complete them as noted to earn the reward specified.
Signing Up for GCLoot
To sign up for GCLoot, the company will ask for both an e-mail address as well as a password. You can also connect your Google or Facebook account if you so choose.
After the first prompt, the website will ask for some basic personal information, such as your name and your address.
Immediately after signing up, you can access your dashboard, where you can immediately start to make money.
The nice thing about GCLoot is that it’s open to members worldwide, however, some countries may see no opportunities. Just keep that in mind. You need to be 13+, but if you are younger than 18, you do need your parent’s consent.
Making Money with GCLoot
NOTE: every 1,000~ points are worth $1 in value
As mentioned, you can earn in a variety of ways with GCLoot. The most common ways to earn points include surveys, watching videos as well as completing offers.
When you sign up, this is what your dashboard will look like:
It’s easy to browse and almost all of your ways to earn will be shown on the main page; however, you can narrow it down by category via the menu on the left as well. And, as mentioned, almost all of the offers you see will come via third-party offerwalls, such as Cint, Peanut Labs, Dynata and CPX Research, to name a few. This is common place among most websites like this, and it’s the reason I stress that you should compare rates as they will all vary.
Most of your money will be made with either the surveys or offers. In the surveys section, you will be prompted with a variety of survey routers, most of which are from reputable brands.
Each one, as you can see, will pay a variety of rewards, all of which can change. For example, Cint pays up to $9 per survey, whereas Peanut Labs pays up to $10. Just click on a router of interest and it will take you to a list of surveys as well as the points you can earn.
Another way to earn, even though I don’t recommend it much, is via the watch section.
In this section, you can get paid to watch videos; however, before you get excited, let it be known that you won’t make much. In fact, you won’t make much at all.
For example, that HideoutTV link will pay you 7 points for every three videos you watch, which is less than a penny in value. Since every 1,000 points is worth $1, you can do the math. It will take you about three to four hours of watching to earn $1 in points. Worth it? Absolutely not. I just wanted to mention this section as it is a way to make money.
The offers section is usually much better than the videos, and in many cases, it can be much more lucrative than the surveys as well.
In this section, you can either work with an offer wall or you can scroll further down the page to see the most popular offers among these offer wall companies.
With offers, you’re going to complete the offer as specified. It can range from signing up for a service to downloading an app and reaching a certain milestone. Everything you need to know will be given to you ahead of time. You just need to make sure it makes sense.
And, just because the offers cost you money, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ignore them as some can actually make you money.
For example, in the past, I signed up for a $25 trial but the company paid me $75 in doing so. That netted me $50 plus the item I purchased. This is very commonplace and can make you a decent amount of money if you find the right offer.
Now that we have the ways you can make money out of the way, let’s explore the rewards.
As mentioned in the intro, the company focuses more on gaming rewards, but they have other options as well. In fact, they have a variety of retailer/restaurant gift cards, many of which you have heard of, as well as Amazon and PayPal options. They basically have everything you’d want.
To cash out, you need at least 5,150 points, which is a $5 value. In general, every 1,000 points will equal about $1 in rewards or so. Most gift cards are offered in $5, $10, $15, $20, $25, $50 and $100 increments.
Once you cash out, it can take up to three business days to receive your reward.
- you only need $5 in points to cash out
- tons of rewards to choose from, including PayPal and Amazon
- open to all globally
- nothing unique here, as they mainly work with third-party offerwall companies (they are legit, however)
- reward rates seemed low in comparison to competitors
In the end, GCLoot is meh.
The thing I don’t like is that they don’t offer much in terms of uniqueness. You can find most of the third-party routers they have and much more via much better sites such as Swagbucks and Superpay.me, to name a few. Plus, these competitor sites pay more and the redemption rates are much lower. That’s not to say GCLoot is bad. I just don’t think it’s worth my time. However, if you choose to use them, you will get paid if you follow through.
In conclusion, it’s not my favorite and I won’t be using it. I just don’t think I can earn much here. However, if you choose to use it, expect a few dollars here and there. Never expect to get rich with these sites, but you can earn a lunch or two. With that mindset, it makes the job that much more easier.
That’s going to do it for now.
