This is a legitimate site and the owner of this site has two other websites that you can join to watch videos. In the past, this website offered you a chance to earn money by playing the lottery. However, the site has been redone and now the only way to earn points from the site is watching the videos that are displayed on the site. You can also earn extra points in your account by inviting your friends to join the site. The site has a referral link that you can request. If you share your referral link and have at least 3 referrals in your account it makes it easier to cash out on the site. You won’t need to watch as many videos in order to redeem the gift cards. When you first start watching the videos they are around 80 seconds long. The longer you watch the videos, the more time you must invest in order to earn from the site. Some of the videos will require that you enter a captcha before you can select the category.

This is a passive income site and it will take time in order to earn enough points to request your gift card from the site. You’ll need to invest a good amount of time on this site watching videos and categorizing the videos that you watch.
