Ever find your wallet a little short around the holidays? Start earning gift cards in your free time now and take the pressure off in December!

Every year, starting in November, we get emails and other messages from people who realize they don’t have money to buy holiday gifts for their loved ones. It’s not that they want to buy anything extravagant, but they would like to be able to do something.

If you’ve found yourself in this situation, or if you’d just like to earn gift cards to help with regular purchases and extras, check out Crowdtap.

Crowdtap is “a market research panel platform that rewards you for your opinions. You can earn rewards at your favorite stores by participating in surveys and giving your honest feedback.” When you complete surveys, you’ll receive points that can be exchanged for gift cards from stores like Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Ulta, REI, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, REI, Lowe’s, Sephora, and many others.

Reddit weighs in on Crowdtap

I’ve been finding positive reviews about Crowdtap online, so I decided to dive into Reddit (where people tend to tell it like it is) to see what Crowdtap users have to say. I found the following among the r/Beermoney discussions:

“I’ve been doing Crowdtap for a very long time and usually make $50/month from it! Sometime you’ll get lucky and qualify for a video interview. Most I made in one month was $180 when I qualified for a couple of those!”


“Unlike a lot of other survey sites, you always qualify and you always make money. I’ve been doing it steady for about 1-1/2 years and have made around $450. The questions are easy and the format makes it more enjoyable then other survey sites. I’ve tried a lot of them that have high ratings and this is by far my favorite.”


“It’s reliable. And something easy to do in your spare time.”


“I’d say I’m making around a 10 dollar Amazon GC a month from it. I love it, easy questions and isn’t time consuming.”


“Very worth it if you’re working at home all day in front of a computer. I got it running on a tab all day and make $5 every 2 days just casually checking it throughout the day.”

So, nobody claims to be getting rich (which, when you’re talking about surveys, is actually a good thing, since claims of getting rich from surveys are bull…). But overall, people seem to feel it’s an easy way to earn gift cards.

As with most survey sites, it sounds like you’ll figure out fairly soon which types of surveys give you the best return for your time. Users say to try different things to see what works best for you.

How Crowdtap‘s points for cards works

The online consensus is you need 1,000 points to cash out for a $5 gift card. Most surveys pay anywhere from a few points to a few dozen points, depending on their length.

The number of points you get per survey varies from a few to dozens. That said, it appears that most of their surveys take just a minute or so to complete, so you can do a bunch of them in a short time.

According to the Crowdtap site:

Each Crowdtap® survey you complete will earn you points which can be redeemed for a variety of rewards.

Points expire on the last day of the month in which they were earned the previous year. For example, points earned in January of 2024 will expire on January 31st of 2025.

Expired points will not be returned. Use these best practices to make sure you never miss out on any points.

They suggest the following steps for making the most of your points:

  • Answer surveys on a regular basis. Regular engagement will ensure that you’ll always be close to your next reward and you’ll never let any points expire!
  • Stockpile gift cards instead of points. Unlike points, gift cards never expire so feel free to save gift cards for special occasions to avoid risking your points.
  • Do not wait until the deadline to redeem. Redeem your expiring points as early as possible to avoid expiration.

By following these tips, you can maximize your earnings. You can also make the most of Crowdtap as a way to earn gift cards for the holidays — or to buy yourself a treat or help pay a bill.
