Weekly Bonus – instaGC: What’s This?
A couple of weeks ago, instaGC introduced a new weekly bonus. This replaces the weekly contests
This bonus is a great way to get a few extra points each week and encourages users to be more active on the site.
What is the Weekly Bonus?
The Weekly Bonus allows users to earn a bonus of up to 5% on both their own earnings and their referrals’ earnings each week. The Weekly Bonus you get each week depends on how many “Bonus Units” you have accumulated during the week.
Each bonus unit is worth 0.01% of your bonus. That means in order to max out at a 5% bonus you will need 500 Bonus Units that week. You also have a cap of 100 Bonus Units each day. If you use instaGC everyday you’ll want to earn about 70 Bonus Units each day to reach 500 Bonus Units by the end of each week.
How do I earn Bonus Units?
There are two ways to earn Bonus Units. First is by referrals. You will get 10 Bonus Units for every referral you get that also completes at least 1 task worth 5 or more points.
The other way to earn Bonus Units is by completing various tasks on InstaGC. You earn a range of 1 – 20 Bonus Units for each task you complete. The more points the task is worth the more Bonus Units you will receive.
Where can I see how many Bonus Units I’ve earned?
When you are logged into instaGC you will see a gift box in the header bar just to the right of your point total.
If you click that gift box it will take you to the bonus page which shows you how many Bonus Units you have earned this week, as well as what your current bonus is. The week runs from Sunday to Sunday.
What is the rollover?
In the run up to the Christmas holidays, InstaGC introduced the rollover and they have continued it since January. The rollover makes it much easier to hit your total bonus as half of the units you earn in one week will rollover to the next, giving you a head start on earning the bonus.
So, if you earn 500 bonus units in a week, you will start the next week with 2.5% bonus.
How can I claim my Weekly Bonus?
Weekly Bonuses are not applied automatically. You MUST claim it each week or it will expire.
Weekly Bonuses can be claimed after 5:10 AM BST (12:10 AM EST) each Sunday. The bonus expires in 30 days if it is not claimed.
To claim your bonus, click the blue bar across the top of the page. Then click the Claim button. Alternatively, go straight to the claim page.
Where can I see which bonuses I’ve claimed?
You can see your Bonus history on the Claim page.
You can also see them in your Points History.
