    ****THIS GUIDE IS NOT COMPLETE OR COMPLETELY ACCURATE. PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IF YOU SEE ANY CHANGES NEEDING TO UPDATE IT.****

    Credited to user BorninSM some information may be outdated or have changed. If you post in the comments any changes needed I will rewrite this guide to be more relevant to the community now.


    GiftHulk Accounts Tips

    1) It really doesn't matter if you use a VPN, VPS or Proxy service for any of the bots here. If these gift card sites decide to investigate your IP & suspect foul play, they reserve the right to ban your accounts and blacklist the IP address you're using for any amount of time they choose.

    2) You will need a paid captcha solving service with money on it. Feel free to ask for more details.

    3) When setting up GiftHulk accounts, a more complete looking account looks more legit. Look up some addresses and last names to use. Use your own resources for this or ask an admin. This step isn't necessarily 100% necessary but, it helps an account draw less attention to itself.

    4) If you have a Google account, set up a Google Voice number here: https://voice.google.com
    Setting up multiple Google accounts will help you get multiple numbers to use. Please use only USA numbers if you set your address on GiftHulk to be a USA address etc. Set your Google Voice numbers accordingly. USA Google Voice are confirmed to work with GiftHulk

    5a) DO NOT OPEN MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT ON THE SAME IP ADDRESS IN ONLY 1 DAY ! ! ! GiftHulk's Terms of Use clearly state that they do allow more than one account per household. Their support teams will tell you that they do not allow more than one account per internet connection but, they do allow more than one account per household. First off, that doesn't make any sense. How common is it to have more than one internet connection per household? Not very. Secondly, it's a simple lie. The truth is they do allow multiple accounts per IP but, the way you'll get multiple accounts banned on the same IP is if you create more than one account in only a few days & try to redeem larger prizes around the same time. If you create 5 accounts in 1 day then redeem $10.00 gift cards across all 5 accounts all at the same time, they will automatically decline any redeeming even if your phone verification went through. At this point, the affected accounts are duds; time to move on to a new IP. My recommendation is to open a maximum of 5 accounts over the course of 2 months if you choose to take the risk. Worse thing is they'll ban the accounts. Best thing is you'll slip under the radar & have 5 accounts per IP = $25.00 USD in Amazon gift cards every 5 days. If you really want to try multiple accounts per IP, open only a maximum of 5 over at least 2 months with at least a full 10 days in between each account. Even then, there are no guarantees.

    5b) YOU OF COURSE CAN CHOOSE TO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS UNDER ANY ONE IP! In fact, I would suggest not doing this on your real IP if you are afraid of being banned. If you are a beginner, I don't recommend opening multiple accounts on any one IP at all. After you learn more and feel more confident and deploying bot methods, you can then try at your own risk.

    So, to recap, use real address and last names attached to those addresses to make an account seem more legit. Google Voice numbers are free but, do take some setting up. Do not attempt to open multiple GiftHulk accounts on any one IP if you are afraid of getting banned.

    GiftHulk Bot Options Tips

    1) GiftHulk points counter starts at 3:00 a.m. EST (UTC -5:00) and ends on 2:59 a.m. EST (UTC -5:00) so, bot accordingly for maximum daily earnings. Between the hours of 8:00 p.m. EST (UTC -5:00) and 2:59 a.m. EST (UTC -5:00) the Videos section displays Round 1 instead of the correct Round that you are actually on for some reason. This is GiftHulk server side occurrence; it is not caused by the bot and the bot cannot fix this. If you monitor the Videos window for a minute or two, you will get a few seconds to see which Round you are actually on.

    2) GiftHulk Bot offers 4 things to bot: Videos, Search, Guess The Card & Engage.

    3) Videos & Search will bring in a total of ~700 points daily. Videos alone will bring in 600 points daily and Search varies from day to day.

    4) Guess The Card & Search will bring in a varied amount of points; it's a casino game. Hope you win.

    5) Engage alone eats up CPU & RAM especially if you have multiple instances of Engage running. The better hardware you have, the better Engage will run. If you have limited hardware specs, Engage should be tested for stability first. Engage doesn't always work properly but, THIS IS A GiftHulk SERVER SIDE ISSUE, NOT THE BOT ITSELF!

    6) If you have sufficient hardware, you can potentially run Videos, Search, Guess The Card & Engage all at the same time, running multiple instances at the same time.

    7) 404 errors during the Videos option are normal. The bot will correct this ~15 minutes. It's no big deal. What happens is, GiftHulk removes certain videos but, leaves the links so, when the links are clicked on, it leads to nothing; 404 Error. 404 ERRORS ARE A GiftHulk SERVER SIDE ISSUE, NOT THE BOT ITSELF!

    8) If you encounter any NGINX server issue, this is normal. The bot recognizes this & will continue to access the GiftHulk website. Give it time. NGINX SERVER ERRORS ARE A GiftHulk SERVER SIDE ISSUE, NOT THE BOT ITSELF!

    9) 404 & NGINX ERRORS ARE A GiftHulk SERVER SIDE ISSUE, NOT THE BOT ITSELF! The bot isn't designed to fix GiftHulk servers issues; it isn't a hacking tool. The bots here simply attempt to bot & recognize dead links to attempt to find links that work. If the gift card sites' servers are down, the bot will simply wait until it can get a solid connection.

    10) If you encounter a Page Not Found error, there is something wrong with your internet connection, not the bot or the gift cards sites' servers; check your router, modem, etc.

    11) You can solve the captchas yourself to help speed things up by simply solving them & hitting Submit; that's it, nothing more. After you hit Submit, DO NOT HIT THE OK BUTTON ! ! ! You can hit the OK button; the world won't explode but, you will lose time because the bot won't advance to the next task. I don't know if this a bot issue or a captcha service API issue but, it will generally result in you having to restart the bot.

    12) If you choose Videos & Search alone, it will take ~6-8 hours to complete pending there aren't too many errors along the way. Guess The Card & Search alone uses the least system resources & takes varying amounts of time depending on what level you're on. Engage & Search will take up more system resources & can be left to run as it has several levels it can go through; it will Engage for some time then take a break and then Engage some more and then take another break..

    13) If you have the time and hardware to manage your bots accordingly, I recommend running Videos, Search & Guess The Card first and then running Engage for the rest of the day.

    14) The reason I neglected to mention RadioLoyalty is because it doesn't always work properly & doesn't bring in much points when it does work properly. Again, RadioLoyalty OPTION NOT WORKING PROPERLY IS A GiftHulk SERVER SIDE ISSUE, NOT THE BOT ITSELF!

    Using a proxy or VPN service will not make you bulletproof. These gift card sites reserve the right to investigate any incoming traffic which include IPs. If they believe you are attempting to cheat the system, they reserve the right to ban your account.

    If you are only using 1 account under your real IP, they may ask for photo ID verification if you redeem larger prizes.

    SO NEVER REDEEM PRIZES WORTH MORE THAN A FEW BUCKS ! ! ! Always redeem smaller prizes & don't let points accumulate then attempt to redeem several rewards back to back.

    This is a SPECTACULAR guide, well done!

    As for the GV verification - are we sure this works? My understanding was that GH flagged GV numbers on redemptions and, while they would work to redeem, they would never actually receive the reward. Also, can you get a GV number without a phone tied to it?

    Followup questions:
    1. There is some folk wisdom floating around that says you shouldn't redeem on new accounts. IE - if you make the account and then bot it at $5, you're likely to get a security inquiry. Your guide, however, states that you shouldn't let points accumulate for long b4 redeeming. Does age matter? Is the age of the account a separate metric from the total number of points earned?
    2. How many accounts can you safely use one phone number to redeem? I stick to 2 maximum but I've never been able to nail that number down.
    3. Do you need to create, bot, and redeem an account on the same IP or does switching IPs not really matter as long as you don't create, bot, or redeem on one account too many times in close proximity?
    4. Can you safely bot multiple accounts on one IP at the same time?

    Thank again for the excellent guide - this is what makes the forum and bot itself a great investment. You're awesome!

    Also - I answered my own question re needing a real number to create google voice accounts. You DO need one but you can use it to create multiple GV accounts. The account creator makes it sound like the past accounts will stop working when you de-register the real phone number from them to register it for the new account, but that is actually not the case. Very cool!

    With Gifthulk it is best to take the account to it's highest tier before redeeming. More people have had success after doing that than those who didn't.

    Anything other than a residential IP is a gamble, but if you take precautions to hide your browser signature and don't use that particular IP too many times, you have done as much as you can without a res. IP.

    @Randydrew6 - I noticed that the bot recently started creating three folders titled "Profile Engage," "Profile Gifthulk Card," and "Profile Video" and filling them with random snippets of data - videos, pictures, html files, etc. during daily bot activities. I'm not sure what the purpose of these folders is (my guess is an attempt to make temp files easier to find and delete than having to access your computer's temp folder), but they are actually making the problem much worse. Each folder generates roughly 2gb of new temp data per day and, unlike the temp folder of old, must be accessed individually through each bot instance. In order to keep the bots running I now have to empty the folders 2x daily to prevent my computer from running out of room. I also had to upgrade my Google Drive account as the bot backup there and I was running out of room.

    Can you please disable this feature, and quickly? Running GH has become untenable in it's presence and I'm losing quite a bit of money each day as result.

    Thank you as always for all that you do!

    Thanks for the tip! I will definitely consider.

    The bigger problem is that the new temp files in the folders described are filling up my computer. Anyone else notice this occurring?

    I just noticed something else new as well. The chrome browser istances that open when you run several instances of the bot at once on the same computer/VP used to be multiple instances of different chrome executables. Now they are multiple instances of the same .exe. In addition, they now tie to whatever google account and extensions are in use on your non-bot chrome profile. They used to be fresh instances running in a sort of incognito mode - now they aren't. I ran Panoptoclick on them and they all have exactly the same footprint. I'm not sure, but this likely means that the bot now appears suspicions to GH as I know for a fact that GH uses browser footprints to track suspicious redemptions.

    Anyone else noticed this change or is something wrong with my installs?

    @Randydrew6?

    Yeah, I have the same issue. I would really like to run multiple independent processes without using a virtual machine.

    It's the VIP section

    This update will use your current chrome cookies and settings, this will be safer for the bot and also wont require the bot to login when launched if you're already logged into Gifthulk. This is safer because each browser will use the same profile like it would normally. 2 GB of disk space isn't that much but you can make it less if you clean your browser. You should not delete these folders because they need them to run.

    Yes they all have the same footprint, this would be the same as opening multiple chrome windows on your PC

    Quoting the message I just sent you as I think it would be helpful for people to weigh in here:

    @Randydrew6 -

    I admire your creative solutions to average user problem. I'm not sure I would have thought of that!

    Could you please add a function to toggle this feature on and off that would be on by default (to prevent less savvy users from having to enable it)? I have worked for a long time and spent more money than I am proud of getting a large number of accounts up and I will lose them if this feature cannot be disabled. I completely respect what you are trying but as it is this feature will completely prevent me from being able to use multiple instances on one VM/PC. I'd venture to guess that many of your other long-time supporters are going to be in the same boat. While it is possible to run them all on individual VMs the economics just don't work to support that model. Anything less than 3 accounts per PC/VM is just unmanageable.

    As to the "average" user, this feature may have actually created a few more unforeseen complications. It makes it impossible to use more than one instance of the bot without a proxy (GH does not load videos for more than one account coming from the same IP and browser fingerprint). It also puts international single-account proxy users at risk as it requires them to understand whether their

    It's possible that I am misunderstanding how much GH cares about browser signature during the botting process (we know they care about it during redemption). - if so, please let me know. We actually don't have much data about this as it's never been an issue with how the bot has worked in the past. Seems a pretty big risk as it may get even seasoned accounts banned. At the very least this will likely make auto-redeeming multiple accounts from one PC/VM impossible.

    Again, I have MASSIVE respect for you and the things you do here. For those of us who put in the the work to tweak the systems and tread carefully there are fantastic rewards. I'd pay 4X as much per month to keep things going smoothly - stuff like this scares the hell out of me though. I imagine I'm not alone.

    Also - as to the 2gb file size - you're right, it is not a lot unless you run multiple bots on one PC and/or on a VM with a small hard drive. It DOES get a little wonky if you use google drive to host all of your bot files for use on multiple PCs/VMs as all of the videos/pics from operation store there and backup to Google Photos. I spent an hour yesterday clearing them out.

    Obviously something I can fix on my end, but it was still a major hassle.
