I am from New Zealand so I can't redeem my xper for gift cards, I'm not really interested in getting a t shirt (sorry GAG but they aren't the prettiest things) all I can do is make my post featured, donate to a charity that has nothing to do with my country and that's about it. It's a bit unfair. I have all these points that I can't spend.
GAG needs to start catering to the wide variety of its users. There are literally people from all over the world using this site, and I'm sure a few people that are a little annoyed that they can't use their xper for something they want.
When I found out that you can redeem your xper for gift cards I was super excited, I went to redeem and saw that there was only Amazon gift cards, and there is no NZ Amazon so I was a bit disappointed.
Im not sure what major websites cater internationally but if everyone could suggest some sites that GAG could set up a deal with for all of us living outside of the U. S. And Canada to use our hard earned xper on, that would be wonderful!
well, you can still use the amazon gift card to get digitally downloaded stuff from amazon like ebooks and such if you aren't american/canadian. You just have to use a random U. S. address during checkout.
Anyhow, i do agree with you. I think there should be a wider variety. They use to have itunes cards i believe, but they stopped that a long time ago. With the way things are going though, they are more likely to reduce the amount of things we can use our xper on, versus increasing the options
Even though this doesn't apply to me because I live in the United States, I definitely see what you're saying. When I first read up on how you can redeem your points I did think that it was unfair. Maybe they are unable to ship to other places as of now because the website is progressing and they still have work to do. Hopefully they realize that they need to work on this aspect of the website. I hope that it soon changes so that you may redeem your gift cards😄. Good luck😊.
Ps. I definitely agree with you on that t-shirt thing😵.
Well i hate to say this but i see GAG is going to start premium services because they need money to run the site they are losing money because people are using adblock to block ads that pop up i look for soon they will even make people with higher ranks to deal with ads too but i could be wrong..
Be aware that you're whining about gifts given as a thank you for using a free service. I've never seen another site even offer such things, and I see a lot of people complaining about how they're not enough.
I can earn in an hour at work what it takes a year to earn posting here at a moderate rate.
I think Admins should just stop offering this shit... too many entitled people here.
Maybe a good idea would be to find 1 brand or internet shop that is active worldwide. Though the GAG community is probably for 50 or slightly more percent North American, the other 50% does indeed have little options to redeem its points. I googled a little and this site, for example, ships world wide. www.giftsnideas.com/.../international-online-gift-shop And I suppose, if it took me just 2 minutes to find one, there will be more of these! By the way, I'm from Belgium so I'd have the same problem you have :-)
I am from New Zealand to and don't really care about the Amazon gift card. It is only like $25 you get or something anyway and it takes so many points to get there anyway. I have tons of points myself and I can see your point but I have just decided since it is not much of a prize anyway I can't be bothered. I personally would like to see GAG sort some of the other problems out more.
Totally agree. Becoming more international, in EVERY way, would be the logical way forward for the site. People in countries outside the US are in general much more insightful about relationships, also, in my experience.
Sure why not, it would expose them for being the carnies they really are... They already ask for a dollar when you sign in to play the game for having ad block on and they also don't give you your prize when you win, so they might as well have more possible prizes to bring in the crowds.
Yeah that was i was telling one of the admins here, she said Shirts are only available in US and Canada and i said but GAG have users all over world at the end she said we will consider it, but dont get your hopes up it was just a talk.
I have redeemed for 3 gift cards which I have which are worthless for me, I will send them to my Canadian or American girlfriend from here. :D
maybe it should
It's American based. Everything is American based. They have one thing on their mind and that's themselves. They don't look past their own shores so to hell with the rest of the world because they are the world. So they think anyway
I don't think the site has the financial abilities right now and what they provide benefits a large majority of their users so they don't really need to add more. Contact GAG and ask for them to consider it though, it wouldn't hurt.
There's no Amazon in NZ? No way, well... you learn something new everyday!
But yes - i agree with you, this is an international site really, yes it may be predominantly US but there are a LOT of regular users from around the world. A charity in each, or just Amnesty International, or the Red Cross or similar - something which is universal would be nice. I don't want to give my points to a charity in the US, I'd prefer it to go to my country.
I agree with you. I gave my points to RAVEN, it was good. But there's nothing else I can do with it. It would be a good idea, but I guess they don't do it because it would be too expensive for the site administrators or they're not able to do it.
I think it's nice that they do give out rewards because most sites don't do that at all but I definitely see your point and it's not really fair. I'm curious what their reason is for not offering gift cards to people in certain countries?
