7 ‘CrowdTap’ Reviews
One of my favorite sites!
Most of the reviews have been from the older version of CrowdTap. Every month, they hold several drawings per brand. The more points you've earned that month, the more entries you have into the drawings. The more stars you earn and the more Top 100 rankings you have, the more likely you are to get freebies! I have gotten so many gift cards and free things from them it's not even funny! You do have to keep at it, but ultimately it's the luck of the draw so you can still get something even if you haven't been able to do much in a month. It's the perfect website to keep minimized at work if you're able to get online, since it doesn't require so much involvement that you can't pull yourself away or jump right back in. Also great for when you're bored. Don't be discouraged by the bad reviews; they changed for that very reason!
Ive been a member for about a year now! I love the new version of crowd tap! Ive won a couple gift cards and some awesome samplings! Its something you have to work at. Daily submissions and daily survey taking! The more you do, the better your chance is to win something!
Nothing in return for my time
I have been on Crowdtap for over a year and have never been able to redeem my points. They just changed it and now every month there is a drawing. It's a complete waste of time and energy. I have never been picked for anything and I am a regular. Just say no.
If it seems to good to be true, it is!
I have been a member of CrowdTap for 3 years now, doing the quick hits and trying to get into discussions, paties and samplings. I have only been selected to do one of their samplings in the past 3 years. Everyone who says that they get a phone and stuff all the time should consider themselves lucky. I fit right into the general target range for age groups and still never get picked. The majority of the people are like me and don't get anything. I have been saving for an Amazon gift card which is pretty much impossible to redeem even if you get the outrageous number of point they want. The rest of the store is 'gift cards' that are just like coupons and those haven't been restocked in a long time. I've had way better luck in the past 2 months with other companies than this one. Save your time and go elsewhere.
Very difficult to redeem; Survey values not competitive
It's both very difficult to redeem your points for rewards and to earn enough points to redeem. As another commenter mentioned, you have to go to the crowdtap store at very specific times to be able to redeem anything, as they only restock gift cards at the first of every month. This last month, the restocked at noon and 8pm, and I got to the store 20 after noon and they were already sold out! And it sucks if you miss it because then you have to wait a whole other month. I've been a very active member of crowdtap for 4 months now and I just now got enough points for a $10 gift card--compared to good survey sites like SurveyU, where I just took one 30 minute survey and got the same reward. Plus, Crowdtap just more than doubled the points it takes to get a gift card without telling anyone--you just go to the store and you can no longer spend your hard-earned points because it costs twice as much! I'm very mad at crowdtap for its lack of communication with its members, its shady point-redemption practices, and its ridiculous requirements. As soon as I can get them to email me back and let me redeem my remaining points, I will no longer be a "tapper"
