Instant Rewards is an app by Flashpoint Media LLC that does exactly what its name indicates. Users of Instant Rewards can earn monetary rewards for doing simple tasks like completing surveys or viewing videos.
The features of Instant Rewards are pretty much completely summed up in its name—complete tasks and be rewarded instantly for your efforts. Unlike some online rewards programs that are completely focused on surveys or videos, this app’s program features multiple ways for users to earn “credits,” which can then be converted to money once enough are accumulated.
For example, users might earn five credits for signing up to receive emails from one website or 25 credits to sign up for another. Once a user has earned a minimum of $7.50, he/she can then choose to “cash out” and receive the earnings through PayPal.
Personally, while I found the concept of using Instant Rewards to be very exciting, I found actually using the app to be a bit more frustrating than desirable.
Often the app would crash on me when I would try to upload a screenshot of my activities to complete an offer, and when an offer may only be worth a few cents, the effort of having to re-open the app (and try again, and possibly again) starts to make the value of the reward seem questionable.
Overall, Instant Rewards is an enticing app although a few bugs in the system should be worked out to make it better.
Appearance and Layout:
The layout of this app is very user-friendly. Signing up for an account takes almost no time at all, and finding offers to complete is easily accomplished.
Navigating from pages of offers to one’s account information is simple, as icons on the bottom of the screen direct users wherever they wish to go. However, while the layout of Instant Rewards is certainly acceptable, the appearance of the app could use some improvements.
Oftentimes certain fonts/scripts would be overlapping each other, making it unpleasantly difficult to decipher the text; additionally, the app seemed riddled with grammatical errors, an issue of appearance that may deter certain iOS users from trusting in the credibility of the app.
As a free app that offers real monetary rewards, Instant Rewards is definitely a great “value.”
The app is easy to use and offers a variety of task options, allowing consumers to invest as much or as little time as they’d like to in the app. However, it should be noted that in order to ever “cash out” on prizes, a user must have earned at least $7.50 worth of credits (750 credits), and accruing these credits certainly takes a good bit of time.
Overall, this app delivers an easy way to make money and will appeal to individuals who have used internet-based points/cash rewards programs in the past, but for anyone who gets easily bored with little tasks, Instant Rewards is probably not the ideal app for him.
