So this is actually a website – it has an app – but I don’t like to use the app itself because I prefer the website. It works on the idea of you compleating “activities” within brands. Those activities give you entries to gift-card drawings each month within that brand. You can also get the chance to review some of the products that brands offer for free. I’ve received a few different items that I was able to try thanks to crowdtap.
As you can see there are a few different tabs – Crowds, Missions and Polls. Under the Crowds tabs you can see the crowds that you currently have participated in under ‘My crowds’ as well as all of the available ones. I would recommend starting under the All tab and go from there.
Once you are in a ‘crowd’ (very simply to join one – just click on it’s picture) you can do these things called ‘quickhits’. If I’m being honest I basically only do the quickhits when it comes to this site (with the exception of a few different reviews). I will explain those below.
As you can see from the picture above I clicked on the “e-bay’ crowd. Once you are in a crowd you will see the different gift cards they are offering to win that month on the right side of the screen. Here e-bay is offering 29 different $100 eBay gift cards. There are other crowds that will offer different gift cards. Most of them offer something along the line of 100 different $5 amazon gift cards and 10 different $25 amazon gift cards.
The next thing you notice is directly below the monthly prizes is the number of entries you have received. Basically 100 points gets you one entry to win any of the prizes they have listed. How you earn entries is through the quickhits (at least that’s how I do it). If you look at the picture above – the thing on the left is a quick hit. Sometimes they are a “view content” where all you do is hit the view content button while other times it’s a survey question. Either way they are super easy to complete and you can earn the amount of points listed (as you see in the yellow box at the top right of the ‘view content’ quickhit you would earn 30 points).
You can also earn more points for sharing pictures on social media, and completing other missions all within the ‘crowd’ – however I usually only do the quickhits. The first month alone I ended up winning $10 in amazon gift cards.
Just remember it’s a month to month thing – at the end of the month the various crowds have their drawings and emails are sent out from there if you won a gift card. There is no surefire way to earn a gift card but the more entries you have the greater the chance.
I usually check on a weekly basis to see if any new quickhits were added to try to get my entries up.

Just think of all the savings you could have if an offer overlaps between all of these apps!
