Online task-based rewards programs such as Swagbucks, Superpoints and Gift Hulk allow users to redeem points for electronic gift cards, digital downloads, coupons or for actual goods. Each program awards points for completing different actions and features a different set of redeemable items.
The online rewards website Swagbucks rewards users with points, called Swag Bucks, for completing a variety of tasks. These tasks range from watching sponsored videos and taking surveys to playing Flash games and participating in special events. Each action rewards the member with a certain amount of Swag Bucks, which can be redeemed exclusively in the site's rewards store. For example, a user can redeem 450 Swag Bucks for a $5 digital Amazon gift card. Other types of gift cards are available on the site, as well as options to make charitable donations or enter raffles to win electronics.
The Superpoints site works on a similar premise, awarding points to its users after they complete different tasks. However, Superpoints offers a greater selection of physical goods. Points can be redeemed for items such as novelty gifts and small electronics or even cars and vacations. Earning more points allows users to achieve access to higher rewards tiers, and thus earn larger amounts of points.
