GrabPoints vs. TreasureTrooper Review

November 29, 2018

We’ve been doing this series of “VS” blog posts to show you why GrabPoints is worth your time and effort. You should be using GrabPoints for a very simple reason: GrabPoints is the highest-paying rewards site on the planet. We can confidently say that no other rewards site pays its members as much as GrabPoints does. And that includes some of the biggest names in the rewards scene, like TreasureTrooper.

GrabPoints takes your payouts very seriously. A lot of our members rely on their GrabPoints earnings to supplement their income. That is why GrabPoints keeps working to give members the highest earnings… not to mention fast payment processing. High earnings and fast processing means members can get their grocery money sooner, or that they can afford that finally afford to take their kids out for a fun weekend.

It’s a really bold claim, but we can back that up with simple, hard facts. We may be biased, of course, but facts are facts. To show you why GrabPoints is the best option for you, we’ll compare the site with TreasureTrooper. We’ll be showing you the ins and outs of each site. And of course, we’ll also be showing you how much you can earn on GrabPoints. (Isn’t that why we use rewards sites in the first place?)

But before we get on with the comparison, we need to clarify that this article is not a TreasureTrooper review. TreasureTrooper is a legit site, and we know their members do get paid. But do they get paid as much as our members? And is their overall experience as good as GrabPoints’? Read on to find out! But spoiler warning: GrabPoints is the superior option in almost all criteria.

Get to Know GrabPoints and TreasureTrooper

We’ve already mentioned that both sites are legit. But here are a few key details about both sites:


Over 4 million people have gotten paid through GrabPoints. The company was founded in 2014, and in a short span of time, it has distributed over $5 million to those members! GrabPoints hasn’t been around the longest, but it has been growing at a rapid rate. To give you an idea of how fast the company is growing, 4 million members in 4 years translates to over 2,700 new members each day!

This is important to know for two reasons:

1. A fast-growing user base means people are happy with the site, and are actively referring friends and family to the site. (You wouldn’t recommend a site if it sucked, right?)

2. A large user base makes GrabPoints an appealing partner to advertisers. And these advertisers and partners enable GrabPoints can afford to give members high payouts. It’s a win for everyone!

They’ve distributed over $7 million to members. But when you crunch the numbers, GrabPoints has been paying more per year than TreasureTrooper. Overall, GrabPoints has been paying 1,250,000, on average, each year. Compare that to TreasureTrooper, which has been paying 1,166,666, on average, per year. Plus, we don’t know how many members TreasureTrooper has.

What Makes TreasureTrooper Special?

TreasureTrooper has one of the coolest sites we’ve seen. Members of the site also answer surveys, watch videos, and complete offers. The TreasureTrooper site looks really fun. In fact, the site looks more like a mobile game than a rewards site. And that’s pretty much deliberate. Many aspects of TreasureTrooper has been “game-ified.” And in keeping with their treasure hunter theme, you can look for hidden codes throughout their site and ads. When you type in the code, you get rewards. TreasureTrooper also has online comics and screensavers. All of which are cute, but does it translate to a positive user experience? Let’s dig deeper in the next section.

Pro: GrabPoints is a reliable source of extra money

Our members use GrabPoints for recurring expenses, like buying groceries, buying school supplies, or paying for car maintenance. They’re totally committed to GrabPoints, and we’re totally committed to them.

GrabPoints is reliable because members can expect to receive their earnings within 48 hours of requesting a payout. This allows them to work their schedule around their GrabPoints earnings. The minimum withdrawal is only $3, meaning members can withdraw their earnings more often, if needed.

Pro: Lots of payout options

Cash, which is sent via PayPal, is one of the most popular payout options, but GrabPoints also has tons of gift card options. And these are in-demand gift cards from popular establishments – no no-name gift cards here. If you’re gamer, you’ll dig our Steam Wallet and PlayStation rewards. If you’re a fashionista, you’ll enjoy using our gift cards for Macy’s and GAP. And if you’re a work from home person, why not use our Staple’s gift card to stock up on some important supplies? And if you’re undecided then simply go with a VISA gift card.

Con: “Highest-paying” doesn’t mean you can make this your job

We keep mentioning “supplemental income” because your earnings on GrabPoints will be just that. It’s good for adding to the monthly budget, not covering it altogether. We’re pretty big on setting realistic expectations. GrabPoints won’t overpromise or make claims it can’t fulfill. But that said, your payouts on GrabPoints will definitely be higher than on other sites!

Pro: It’s a fun site to use

The art direction of TreasureTrooper site is awesome, it’s got awesome content, and… it just looks awesome, overall.

Con: There isn’t much beyond the fun exterior

Other than looks, there doesn’t seem to be anything special about TreasureTrooper. Don’t get us wrong – it really is legit. But it’s not exceptional. It’s got that nice scavenger hunt contest, but other than that, there isn’t anything unique about the site.
