I discovered CrowdTap about a month ago, and I’ve already redeemed my second reward. My first reward was also an Amazon gift card, so I am unsure if there is any retailer variation or if all rewards come from Amazon. As an Amazon Prime member, I enjoy receiving Amazon gift cards. Crowdtap allows tappers to sample free products and earn rewards in the process. It is a place where consumers and brands collaborate to: share opinions, ideas, and market through social sharing. This company has a two-part reward system. Those who earn a specified number of points get a reward. There are opportunities to team up with brands to test products in exchange for reviews. Successful completion of brand missions get points, which in turn helps tappers get more rewards.
Other than my Sephora Black Friday order, which I actually placed on Thanksgiving, I sat out of Black Friday Deals. I’ve only braved Black Friday crowds to shop in person one time, and I did not enjoy it. A lot of online retailers place items on sale over the weekend or on Cyber Monday. Those appeal to me a lot more, because I save on gas, do not have the bear the cold, the crowds, and in some cases can get cash back on orders. Getting cash back on Amazon is tricky, so I did not get anything for this order unfortunately.
