I wish I never stumbled upon this company. I joined up and with poor customer service and low payouts on the tasks/surveys there is only one word that describes my experience with them.

They blocked me from a $25 Paypal cashout due to some issue with Hideout.com (a notoriously scammy site) that wasn't explained to me at all. I think this was a good site at one time but the association with the scam artists at Hideout turned the folks who run instagc into scam artists themselves.

InstaGC appeared to be a neat new site that I could use to answer questions and complete offers on. I signed up for a gamefly trial and was told that I would receive my offer credit within 2 hours. Well, a few days went by and I still had not received my credit so I reached out to InstaGC report as mentioned in the disclaimer. I was told to send Acorn (company providing the offer) a message and to wait 5 days. If I did not receive a response within 5 days, I was told to contact InstaGC again. After following these directions, InstaGC told me that I just needed to wait more time. How did we go from 2 hours to 8 days? If Acorn is not going to follow through on their promise then why would you promote their site on your site. Needless to say, I never received my credit. Stay away from InstaGC. You will waste your time completing offers and will not receive credit for it.
Next time a customer reaches out and has a problem, don't tell them to wait longer. Reach out to the offending company (Acorn) and see what is going on. I deleted my account as your customer service is terrible. It shouldn't take a review in order to get your company to do something about an issue.

This is the worst website you can sign up to make money. The staff is very rude and ignorant.
They ask you to provide an ID so they can tell if you are real. I provided 3 Identification documents, including my passport. As soon as I did they started to ignore me and haven't responded to my messages for 4 days. Remember they say account review takes less than 48 hours.
How hard is it to look at an ID and be like yup legit, activate account? you need 2 days to look at an ID? And why do they ignore you?
if you ask for an update they will ignore you more. I have attached the support tickets so you can see I am not lying.
Update: Account is now fixed and I got all my points back. Thanks

I use to get quite a bit of surveys on instagc but the last few months it has been very dry with very little surveys. Their support is also quite rude so don't expect much help.
Review by Kashinda2 years ago
Surveys are a constant problem. Complete surveys and then you are told did not qualify. Didn't know that at the start??? InstaGC blames everything on everyone but themselves. Do they not have the power to not accept the business of companies that do not pay for completed surveys? Of course they do. They, InstaGC, treats you as badly as the survey companies! No, do not tell me I did not want them to work. Are you as stupid as InstaGC??

I made over $1,000 last year, so I can't complain. At times you get frustrated with certain apps blocking you, but overall this has been the best survey/rewards site for me. The two LiveSample surveys a day have really been a boost to my totals. This month I am over $70 so far, and January is my worst month.
Review by Galix Chourasia2 years ago
Instagc use to be good and now it's a joke. They can't keep up with their competitors and their support loves ignoring tickets. I would recommend avoiding this site for surveys.
Review by Jamiene2 years ago
This site is great and I have earned quite a few gift cards. Also Customer Service resolves any problem I have quickly. They have even told me about ways to earn more. I love this site.

Review by Willowtree Parani3 years ago
They blocked me from cashing out after I posted a bad review on Pissed Consumer about a NON-PAYING survey. Then they REVOKED a bunch of previous gift card cashouts!!!!Tango cards do not work like traditional gift cards. They are ONLY available as rewards OR if you have a "funded" account (which is really only for businesses). You get a tango egift card which can LATER be used for the gift card of your choice on the tangocards.com web site. Because Andrew Day had a hissy fit over a bad review (oh noes!) and [blocked my access to rewards (and chat LOL) "until I mark it resolved"](http://i.imgur.com/BIGWm8Z.jpg) The PREVIOUSLY cashed out and deposited INTO my OWN Tango Card account gift cards were ALL sent to ZERO. I have contacted the BBB, Tangocards.com, FBI Internet Fraud, The FTC, and his domain provider GoDaddy to inform them of his FRAUD!

For those of you saying that this is a scam site, you are rude and quite wrong. I joined at the end of August, 2016. And I have made about $50 per month doing surveys, videos, point booster codes, etc.
This site is not a get rich quick scheme, nor will it replace having a full time job. It is what it is; a way to make extra money.
Too many of you don't want to work it, or you expect it to be easy.
So, be honest with everyone else and yourselves. You tried it; you did not like it - period.
That does not, in any way, make it a scam.
Review by Chauchau Harouki3 years ago
Although the site pays, privacy is at high risk and misuse of personal information is significant. No autonomous procedure of cancelling the account . Using a proxy is prohibited. Pay per click partners websites that lead to virused and porn sites. in brief dangerous and unworthy site.
Review by Jongshyong3 years ago
Most of the time you are just not earning points or any money. The surveys don't pay at all. Points never get updated.
Not worth a try for asians. Won't get as far as 100 points
Review by MedryAlex3 years ago
I am VERY unhappy with the Support system on this website. Prior to using the site, i read reviews on it to make sure it was legit and not a complete waste of my time. Most of the reviews were average to generous or even to TOO nice. And then i saw bad reviews, mostly complaining about the rude mods and Support staff and how most requests went ignored. Not too many of the 'happy' commenters talked about what happened when you try to cash out. And today i just came to find out for myself.
So, i set up my account with a goal of 10,000 points ( 100 Dollars ) to cash in on a digital ebay giftcard. My short term goal was at LEAST 5,000 poins because it seemed like it would be easier to achieve in a short amount of time. So Im eager, putting in long hours taking *** repetetive surveys and not qualifying for FAR too many, doing offers where some credit and others dont and risking my device being hacked for many weeks until i finally near my goal. Im at 4,600 points and i thought that would be close enough to get what i need it. So to be sure ill actually get what i asked for, i send Support a ticket.
Now, let me tell ya. Up until today, support was fine. Curt, but were professional and did as they should have. Even unfroze my points when they went uncredited for too long. So i thought everything would be fine and dandy when i decided to message them again about the terms of service and how to unlock the rewards center. I even apologized for sending in too many tickets even though in reality i onl sent 3 prior to the most recent one. So anyway, i hit them up about the terms, asking as many questions as i possibly can to get as much information as i need. Again, they were curt, very emotionless and even a little rude with their responses but i ignored it. I read abnout people getting suspended for no *** reason and i didnt want to be next on their $#*!list. So anyway, i continue on with the conversation. I ask them about phone verification and this where they started to get even more rude. Eventually after explaining my cell phone situation, i tell them that i have a home phone to verify my account with and give them my number. Their reaction?
Well first they redescribed to me what options i have to unlock the rewards center. Im wondering wtf is going on bc i assumed evething was resolved with me giving them my home number. I ask them what happened and they tell me that my number isnt valid and is detected as being a Voip number. Now im like ' What thats impossible. My number is connected to a landline '.
So i go on to go to phone verifier websites which all tell me that my number is valid, from a landline, in my location and the same location i put in my instagc bio and from the service provider i use. I go back to report this to support and tell them that my number is valid and they go on to talk me in circles, in the most robotic, condescending way possible telling that i can either go for the check option or the ID option. I didnt and do want to do either of those. I dont want to risk having my identity stolen and the check will take too long to come to my house after processing. Why should i have to wait after all the *** time i put into the site just to get to this point.
At this point, im angry. Im practically begging them to verify my *** phone number and they stop replying all together. Ignoring me. I leave them MULTIPLE support tickets and got no response to any of them. I put in WEEKS earning points for a single giftcard and they treat me like im *** and liar when i have no reason to lie. LITERALLY NO *** REASON.
i wouldnt waste my time trying to talk to support. It aint worth it. I wish i knew who their higher up was so that i can report them. Watch them suspend me for just posting this review. I dont give a *** at this point. Im *** angry. All that work for nothing.

Hi! I believe InstaGC is one of the greatest ptc sites out there on the internet. It only takes me a few months to get a $100 gift card of my choice. I can cash out anytime! The people are fantastic, giving you tips on how to do offers! People who don't like clicking sites, I recommend you look somewhere else because this site is worth the time!

eventually everyone gets banned for hacking or bots or fraud or whatever their falvor is this week, problem is most people they ban like myself have no clue how to do any of those things, so they just let you do the work, get paid then refuse to pay you and make stupid claims, scummy website run by scummy people!
Review by Abdelhakim Lisowicz4 years ago
I signed up a few months back and it took a little while because I don't qualify for a lot of surveys but I was finally able to redeem my points for gift cards and had absolutely no issues at all.
Review by Stab Taylow4 years ago
InstaGC is a pretty easy website to use once you get the hang of it. There's options to cash out with Paypal, check, or via any gift card that they have in stock. Each point equals a penny, and they add up fast. Tip: They often give out codes that gives you bonus points on their Facebook page and Pinterest account, so it is worth following them on it. They also have a comprehensive guide that I found very useful when I first started out.If you'd like to sign up, my ref link is: http://www.instagc.com/jesse2253

I came across instaGC when i was randomly searching how to make money or gift cards online lol. This site popped up. I thought it was a scam at first but as I got more comfortable with it I realized it was a great place to earn extra money on the side. Especially now that they have their direct deposit feature.
I've been using insta for a little over a year or so now. And i am not stopping any time soon. Thanks insta!!
Review by Bathory Schuerbeek6 years ago
It's fairly easy for me to earn points on InstaGC; so far, I've been a site member for about a year, and earned around $300 (but this is from me hardly trying most of the time). The mods in chat are very nice, and support tickets are often replied to within an hour in my experience. I would recommend this site to anyone.
