HOW TO: Access New Opportunities to Win

Welcome back Tappers,

We hope you’ve been enjoying browsing around our new site and taking our new features and navigation bars for a test drive! Today, we’re going to talk about one more very important change to our site: The Rewards System.

Why bother changing it, you ask? Well, last month, only 41% of our members won prizes from the Monthly Drawings. Not only was that number too low for our liking, but we found that the chances of Tappers winning rewards was inconsistent with how much effort they had put in to Tapping with us. Tappers who were submitting awesome, original snapshots for Photo Missions and thoughtful replies for Text Missions were still sometimes being passed over for prizes. Additionally, even if a Tapper missed out on a prize by just a few points, they had to start all over the following month. We didn’t think that seemed fair at all.

The new rewards system on Crowdtap is designed so that you can tap at your own pace and be rewarded for your stellar contributions and efforts, with more rewards to win. How does it work? Read on to find out.

When you logged in today, one of the first things you saw on your Dashboard was this message at the top of the page. As you complete more actions across your brands, you’ll see the circle on the right, named the PointsWheel, start to fill up. The PointsWheel will tell you how many points you’ve earned since your last reward, and how many you have left to go until your next one.

You can fill up your PointsWheel by completing actions within your Brands and Topics. You’ll earn a different number of points for different types of actions, but the idea is the same: the more effort you’re putting into Tapping, the more you’ll earn. Completing Photo and Comment Missions will reward you more than answering a few multi-choice polls.

You’ll be able to track your PointsWheel on your Brand Pages. As you’re completing actions on your brands, you’ll see your total number of points (now located over  your profile picture) increase in real time.

You’ll also have opportunities to win exclusive rewards by participating in Contests. Contests can offer bonus points to fill up your PointsWheel more quickly, or awesome prizes like signed jerseys, school tuition, and brand swag.  



Once you fill up your PointsWheel, you’ll unlock your first prizing opportunity! If you win, you’ll receive an email with your prize information. Be sure to add donotreply@crowdtap.com to your address book to make sure prizes are delivered safely to your inbox. Keep tapping and you’ll earn a reward opportunity every time you fill up your PointsWheel.



Are you expecting to be really busy over the next few weeks and not have enough time to get your Tapping on? No worries- your points will still be here when you come back! That’s right, unlike before, your progress will no longer expire every month. Points will now roll over, so you can tap at your own pace.

Curious to see how much you’ve won on Crowdtap? Consult the status icons located under your profile picture in the lefthand navigation bar.

From left to right, you are seeing the total value of rewards and prizes earned, the number of contests you’ve won, and the number of stars you’ve earned earned. For example, in the screenshot to the left, you can see that I’ve won $0 in rewards and prizes, 0 contests, and 8 stars. If you haven’t won any stars, you just won’t see that displayed.


Pretty simple, right? The rewards that you receive on Crowdtap are related to how much you tap and the quality of your submissions, so the more zest you put into your tapping, the more chances you have to win!

Like what you see? Awesome- we hoped so! Have feedback for us? Leave a comment below, or email our support center.

Love the layout AND the rewards system. I honestly think i’ve been on it MORE now than a month ago. 🙂

I reached my points goal and then it just started over, I didn’t get to enter to win anything.

You guys want honesty and authenticity in Tappers’ responses, right? Well, here’s my response to your new rollout: too many glitches and delays–it was not quite ready for prime time. Wheels not working, points lost, no preparation or advance notice to Tappers. I know CrowdTap can do better than this!


I really love the new changes! I’ve been on Crowdtap more this week than I was all last year. This is the third overhaul I’ve been on board for and by far my favorite! 😉 Thanks CT!

We’re so happy to hear this, Jenna! 🙂


Loving the new changes! Will certainly weed out the last minute lazy people! My only complaint is that I miss the NEXT button! I have to return to my dash to see my available polls and such! And the app, NO HELP! Only shows a few polls!


I agree. Crowdtap, if it’s possible, please reinstall the “next” button that allows us to progress from one topic or crowd to the next easier. It saves time and lets us participate in more crowds faster.


Is there still a monthly drawing??


I have 3 notifications that say that I have won a giftcard and to check my email in the last 2 days but nothing in my email from donotreply@crowdtap.com. How long does this take?


Within 24 hours is what mine tells me.

I really like the new layout. It’s really user friendly and much easier to understand. Thank you!


Is there still month drawings for each crowd? Or is it just the wheel?. And I never get to spin the wheel. And is there a way to like change if you don’t want to get Amazon gift cards. But like Wal-Mart or something. Cuz I keep getting amazon
