    Grindabuck is one of the newer GPT sites that boasts one of the highest payrates out there. Much like Swagbucks and InstaGC, you earn points by completing offers and surveys on various offerwalls, such as Peanuts Labs and Adgate Media. I personally have only been using the site for about two months (with minimum activity this last month), but have received $25 worth of Amazon and $5 Paypal from them.

    Disclaimer: I receive a bonus 10% of whatever you earn if you sign up with my referral link.

    Non-referral: Link
    Referral: Link

    Some things to note:
    • Signup offers are the easiest ones to complete; I recommend reading wadabr549's guide on getting these offers to credit. Link
    • Peanuts Labs and Adgate Media are the two best walls, but give them time to load more offers after you complete most of them; it usually takes a week or two before more signups appear.
    • There is a daily login bonus of 3 Grindabucks, which equals 3 cents. If you check in every day of the month, you get an additional 50 Grindabucks if you've completed at least 200 Grindabuck's worth of offers that month.
    • There are bonus tiers for completing a lot of offers in a month that reward even more Grindabucks if you reach a certain amount of completions and points.
    • Grindabuck has a page dedicated to reliable offers. Check it often. Link
    • Like InstaGC, there is a ticker that updates whenever an offer is completed. There is also a public chatbox. If you need help getting an offer to credit, don't be afraid to ask for help.
    • EngageTV pays really well on Grindabuck (0.93 compared to InstaGC's 0.69).
    • Paypal has a small fee of 25 Grindabucks unless you redeem $25.
    • They process rewards manually. If you don't see any mod messages in the chatbox, you will have to wait for one to return before you can receive your reward. However, you can unlock instant giftcard redemptions as you complete more offers.
    Payment Proof:

    [​IMG]
    100 Grindabucks = $1. For what it's worth, Grindabuck is one of the better GPT sites out there, so give it a shot if grinding signup offers is your thing.

    So far its been a big waste of time. I've been using the site for the last few hours, and according to the instructions I followed on the offers I clicked I should have well over 400 grindbucks, Instead I have the 100 it gave me for signing up and 92 they decided to pay me, which is for about 1/4th of what I have completed. Honestly don't waste your time.

    Hello tfogle,

    I am so sorry to hear that you didn't have the best experience using our site! :(

    It looks as if you joined our site on Jan 1st. I also see you joined this mTurk forum on Jan 1st to post this feedback to us! Just note, we don't check mTurk forums on a regular basis - I wish you had also directly sent us a support ticket for this at the time it happened so we could have been promptly aware to assist you! So, I apologize in advance for this delayed response.

    As for your experience:
    You must first consider the following: Offers won't convert to points on each and every single attempt. This holds true for most all GPT earning sites that I know of. There are various reasons why an offer might not convert to points. The offer might have capped. Also, an offer might fail to credit if you use other GPT rewards websites (meaning the walls might recognize you from other sites and think you are trying to get double credit from both sites on the same offer). Another reason offers won't credit can be due to using fake names, addresses, and other registration info on the offers or surveys. These reasons may or may not apply to your situation, I'm just repeating them for general knowledge info.

    In cases of failed conversions:
    We typically tell users to refer to the actual offer wall they completed the offer on for support about that offer failing to pay out. Usually the walls will merely take your support ticket and ask for proof of completion. Sometimes all they need is a copy of the confirmation email you get in your mailbox after the offer was completed. Sometimes they will ask for a screen cap of the offers completion. We basically provide you with access to the walls, but each wall has it's own support tab on it. So for example, if you do an offer and don't get points for something you did on Peanut Labs - you would use their support button on their wall to get to do support for it.

    Another consideration:
    The GPT earning style is not for everyone. It's really aimed at people who have the extra time to complete the offers and surveys - it's not a get rich quick kind of thing. Surveys can pay out more than offer walls, but they take way more time. The most frustrating part about surveys is getting DQ'd due to your demographics - however, the more surveys you do, the easier it gets because they learn your demographics and give you better opportunities based on what it learns about you.

    Our highest earning members are only making a few hundred bucks per month (you can see on our leader boards). The biggest difference between our high earners, average earners, and low earners, is usually just a combination of location, demographics, and their available free time.

    I invite you to come back and try us out again - perhaps I can help you to increase your point conversions. Can you tell me specifically which walls or offers you attempted that have not paid out? Sometimes users might not have their browsers set up correctly (adblockers turned on, or not accepting cookies). Also, some offers require you to actually clear your cookies between each attempt, and its good to use fresh emails on the offers.

    We also have a "Whats Working" tool that lists the most recently converted offers for other members - which is really good to use to make the most of your time and offer attempts. I would love to help you get started! If you do decide to come back and give us a try, stop by the chat box and introduce yourself! Our members are usually willing to help new members get started and answer any questions they have about our site! Often times in the mornings, members will sit in chat and tell each other which offers of the day are best to try, etc.

    Again, I really hate to hear that you didn't enjoy your time spent with us - but I do invite you to come back for a second try...and I also encourage you to reach out to us and other members to help get you started. We have Trivia Tuesday every Tuesday night at 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm eastern time. This is a great time to come hang out on site because we give away 25 free grindabucks per trivia question. All members new and old are welcome to play, so its a great opportunity to boost your earned Grindabucks towards your first cash out!

    I really hope to see you again soon! :)
    Team Grindabuck

    Great. But you don't seem to have watch videos like Swagbucks does. I would love to do that one. I am in Canada and don't see much offers for Canadians.

    A couple of questions.

    Do you use the same survey providers as places like Swagbucks? Because I see that you said getting DQd is part of the process, but Swagbucks surveys and other similar survey websites are essentially very scammy. How long is the DQ process? Can you be 10 minutes into a survey and then it says oops and you are getting all of 1 penny?

    Also do you guys use your own offerwall? Or is it just the usual offerwalls?

    I guess, what set's you apart from Swagbucks and it's 4,000 clones?
