An easy way to help fund your Pogo fun is to get your Gems for free. A lot of us Pogo fans are doing it, and here’s how: we use a reward site called GiftHulk to earn virtual currency (Hulk Coins, or HC) that can then be traded for PayPal cash directly deposited into our PayPal accounts. Then, we use that PayPal balance to purchase Gems and/or Club Pogo subscriptions from Pogo’s web site.
There are lots of ways to earn Hulk Coins on GiftHulk, but if you work a few specific tasks into your daily routine, you can earn enough HC to cash in for a PayPal gift card pretty quickly. It’s up to you how much you do, but here are a few daily tasks that can add up:
Daily Check Ins
This is 10 free HC per day for just a few clicks. Go to the “Earn” menu at GiftHulk, select “Surveys”, then click the “Get Started” button, and then the “Check In” button. Boom, 5HC just for you. Do the same for “Surveys 2″ and get 5 more HC.
Guess the Card Game
I recommend you go straight from the Daily Check In to the free Guess the Card game, found at GiftHulk under the “Win” menu. Select “Guess the Suit”, select a suit, and click “I’m feeling Lucky” until your chips run out. As you earn more HC across the site you’ll have more chips to play with each day. I’ve been doing GiftHulk a long time and so I have 60 chips to play with each day. I usually get anywhere from 10-15 wins on Guess the Suit and every other day or so there’s a joker (worth 100HC) and/or a Fountain of Youth code in there. When you get a FOY code from the Guess the Card game, use it for yourself first. And speaking of FOY codes…
Fountain of Youth Codes
You can toss your FOY codes into the Fountain of Youth from the “Win” menu at GiftHulk. In the Guess the Card game, players are awarded FOY codes that have 1 or more uses, but can only be used once per person. Sometimes players who receive a FOY code with 2 or more uses will share their extra codes with a friend or on one of several web sites. If you’re fast, you can collect a ton of HC by redeeming FOY codes found on the web.
There’s no need to post your extra codes here — there are oodles of sites out there for code sharing, but two good places to start collecting others’ extra FOY codes are a search on Twitter and “Posts to Page” on GiftHulk’s Facebook page. Trust me on this: with these methods, you’ve got to get them into the Fountain of Youth fast! Some codes last only seconds before they’re redeemed.
GiftHulk TV – Watch and Earn
This can be a little bit time consuming but it’s lucrative. You can earn 520HC a day this way. And you can multitask by playing the videos in one browser window while you are playing games in another. Check it out on the “Earn” menu at GiftHulk.
Engagements can be found at the bottom of the “Earn” menu at GiftHulk. It’s as simple as clicking the links on the left sidebar and waiting until you’re credited. This is also something you can multitask with by using multiple browser windows. You’ll earn 25HC per 10 engagements and there is no limit on how many of these you can do per day.
This isn’t an everyday thing, but if you are going to shop online, think about checking GiftHulk first to look for retailer before you shop. The main “Shopping” page that you reach from the “Earn” menu at GiftHulk is a little bit misleading, because there are way more retailers available than are initially shown. Mouse over “Browse Stores” to see categories, or use the “Find a Store” search.
If you also use Swagbucks to get free Gems, sometimes it’s a better return for your dollars spent. Here’s some math, assuming I’m going to do some shopping online today:
Gifthulk: 1HC = $0.001 PayPal Cash
$50 spent at Target at 20HC per dollar = 1000HC = $1 PayPal cash
$50 spent at Walmart at 16HC per dollar = 800HC = $0.80 PayPal cash
Swagbucks: 1SB = $0.01 PayPal Cash
$50 spent at Target at 1SB per dollar = 50SB = $0.50 PayPal cash
$50 spent at Walmart at 2SB per dollar = 100SB = $1 PayPal cash
So if you were shopping online today at Target, you should go through GiftHulk’s Shopping page first, but if you were shopping online at Walmart you’d want to go through Swagbucks’ Shop page instead.
Stick With It
As you can see there are a bunch of different ways to earn HC, but ultimately you’ll figure out what works for you. Check out all of the ways to get HC under the “Earn” menu at GiftHulk. I always tell people that earning towards these rewards is a marathon, not a sprint. Just work it into your daily routine and stick with it.
That’s all of my GiftHulk tips, what about those of you who are already earning Hulk Coins at GiftHulk to fund your Pogo fun, do you have any tips to share?
