I had parked a $1000 gift card also but hadn't done any trials yet because I wanted to know if there was a way I could make sure it was not a fake site or anything like that, and as soon as I confirmed it through my email, it was a $500 gift card. It's still $500 bucks And I like that part of the deal doesn't involve me getting 2 other people to do the offers too before the gift card is mine. I so don't want to be looking for people to complete them just so I can get the money. You could look at it this way. The offers will probably be a lot easier to do over the $2000 dollar ones.
$2k NT sites don't require referrals and on average a little less than double what a $1k card is. i got my $2k a week ago and it was a check instead of a gift card which i was happy about.
