Amazon gift card now costs 7000 xpers? WHAT THE FUCK?

This is getting less and less fun, dear @girlsaskguys.

What do you guys think?

Updates:
Interesting difference of opinions between guys and girls... Girls seem to hate it too, and guys seem to all be "I'm better than thou because I don't give a shit about the xpers". I wonder why the difference? Why the cocky attitudes, guys?

  • I think it was overall likely a good business decision. They aren't getting paid by their users for access to the website or its features, so giving away free money to users has to be set at manageable limits. Clearly their spreadsheets told them to make some changes.

    They'll lose users over this of course. But from a business viewpoint, if you double prices and lose less than half your customer base, the math works out in your favor and it was a good decision

    The same principle applies here. And on a website like this, users will be replaced relatively easily, most simply won't care about the changes, and for new users, the new xper cost won't be an issue since they've no past experience to compare it to.

  • But the point of using gag shouldn't even be to get 20 dollars. If you want 20 dollars you're better off spending your time doing something else.

    • No it's not, but it's nice to get a little incentive for the time we spend here

    • I agree. Even a minimum-wage job would be better, if Amazon is what you want.

  • if you want to earn twenty dollars so badly, i suggest you get a job instead of wasting your time on a rather useless website.

  • Really not that big of a deal in my opinion...
    YouTube doesn't pay you watch videos.
    Facebook doesn't pay you to keep in touch with people
    Instagram doesn't pay you to post pictures.

    Think yourself lucky GaG does..

    • Other sites have never offered anything. We all joined agreeing to get nothing. We joined gag knowing that it gives something. So when gag makes it more difficult, it just sucks a bit more. Kinda like when google bought youtube. Things get less fun

  • I think you're whining about stupid things, but that's just me.

  • I don't really care. The first few months when I first started I didn't even realize you could earn anything so I see it as an added bonus.

  • It doesn't make any difference for me, I honestly knew about this giftcards thing 2 weeks ago, plus those giftcards aren't supported in my country so I never used them, and they are only 20 dollars, you may need 1 month to get 5000 Xper points, so even if they didn't raise the points, 20 dollars/month isn't that big deal, you can earn them in 2 hours if you had a job lol.

  • Yeah, I guess we'll have to ask @Klaatu51 to make up for the gifts you cannot buy for yourself. He's the only one who knows how to post so much.

    • You're speaking chinese. Lol i don't understand nor do I like the business world. It ruins every good thing and only makes the rich even richer, that's why.

  • I don't know what an xper is for and I don't care, either. I'm not here spamming bs to earn me virtual credit.

  • But... the increase in points has always been that way. At one point it was 3000. I wonder if they'll decide to get rid of it one day like they did with the Netflix thing.
