What Is 1000 Gift?
1000 Gift is a mobile rewards app that you can download for free from the App Store. Currently only available for iOS, this app pays you coins each time you complete a task. These coins can then be converted directly into gift cards to major retailers such as Amazon.
The amount you can earn on 1000 Gift entirely depends on the task that you are doing (more in detail below). Here is what you can currently do to earn more coins:
- Download Apps
- Daily Rewards
- Invite Friends
- Watch Videos
There aren’t that many different types of tasks to complete, but I personally consider this an advantage as you have less to choose from and thus less to keep track of. Each category itself has plenty to choose from and is updated daily so it should keep you quite busy if you’re using it constantly.
How Do I Get Started Using 1000 Gift?
Signing-up for 1000 Gift and earning free gift cards is very simple and can be done in 3 simple steps.
1. Register. You can register for a new 1000 Gift account by downloading their app here. Unfortunately, there’s only an iOS version currently available. Sorry Android users. There’s no need to sign-up using your email as the app keeps track of your coins by recognizing your device. When you install the app, enter the referral code 6c7cd39 to get a bonus of 5 coins when you start, and you help support FFL. Thank you!
2. Complete tasks. You can complete tasks by clicking on the “Task” tab located at the bottom of the screen. Click on any category, and you’ll notice the amount of coins you can earn listed next to each task. Coins are awarded almost instantly once you finish.
3. Cash out. Once you receive a minimum of 600 coins you can cash out. It’s usually best to save up for a while before you cash out, as your points have a much higher value when you cash out for higher-valued gift cards. Gift cards usually take up to a week to process.
How Much Can I Earn With 1000 Gift?
Obviously, the more work you do, the more money you’ll earn. However, we don’t want you to waste your time on tasks that take up a large amount of time with little payout. Here we’re going to quickly breakdown how much each task roughly pays so that you can decide.
Even though coin-value changes the more you earn, we’re going to keep it simple and assume that 600 coins is equal to $1.
Supersonic Task Center
This section consists of downloading apps. Expect to earn anywhere from 50 – 200 coins each time you download an app. All that is required is that you install the app and run it. While there’s no set time limit for leaving the app open, I recommend at least 1 minute just in case.
You can usually rack up coins very quickly in a short time this section, so I highly recommend checking back here daily.
Fyber Task Center
This section works in basically the same way as the category mentioned above. Simply install an app and start it to earn coins. Again, you can earn roughly between 50 – 200 coins per download, and I recommend checking back here daily. This will be a section that you’re always going to come back to.
Automatically get 2 coins for checking-in and pressing a button. It’s that easy!
Each time you invite a friend, they get 5 coins or more, and you get 30% of all of the coins that they earn. This is definitely the best way to earn some extra gift cards. If you’d like to support FFL, you can use our referral code 6c7cd39 upon registration. We’d greatly appreciate it!
Earning coins here isn’t as quickly as downloading apps, but it still isn’t a bad section. Videos usually only last 15 seconds and you earn 1 coin per video. It’s a very easy/semi-passive way to earn money, and I use it only after I’ve exhausted my app downloads. Videos are limited and you need to click a button to continue to the next one.
While there aren’t many tasks to complete on 1000 Gift, I still like the fact that most tasks have a decent payout compared to other rewards programs. Sometimes it will be the case where there’s plenty to do, but only a few tasks that actually help you earn a decent amount.
This is a great way to earn some money in your free time. I tend to use it while waiting in line at the store or in a waiting room. If you’re looking for other apps to earn some cash, we highly recommend the following:
