You’ll need to meet criteria in the current month to earn Gold rewards for the coming month.

  • Early access to gigs

How do I reach Instawork Gold status?

For example, to receive Gold rewards in January, achieve the following by December 31:

  • Complete 5 gigs*
  • Don’t cancel on any gig
  • Maintain an average 4.2 rating or higher

*The gigs will have to be completed before midnight at the end of the month. 

Is Instawork Gold free?

Can I invite friends to become Instawork Gold? 

You can invite as many friends and coworkers to join Instawork! In order to become Instawork Gold, everyone must meet the program criteria above.

Once I'm already in the Instawork Gold program, what happens if my average rating drops below 4.2?

You must maintain a 4.2 or higher star rating to earn Instawork Gold for the month. If your rating drops below 4.2, you'll still be able to continue picking up gigs, but you won't have Instawork Gold rewards until you raise your average rating. You still have to wait until the end of the month.

How often will I get Instawork Gold bonuses?

From time to time, we will run special bonus offers. These bonuses will be offered for a limited time and we will let our Professionals know the requirements to qualify for the bonus and how long the promotion is valid for. 

How do I know how close I am to qualifying for Instawork Gold?

You can check your progress towards Gold on your Instawork profile.  

How do I know if I earned Instawork Gold? 

If you’re a part of Instawork Gold, you’ll will see a gold badge on your profile picture. You will also receive communications with specific information about the program and special benefits you’ll have access to. 

I had to cancel a gig. Does this mean I can’t earn Instawork Gold?

We understand that sometimes you need to cancel. That is why in our policies, you can cancel twice within 30 days as long as the cancellations were not last minute cancellations. However, we want to reward the Professionals that keep their commitments, which is why cancellations affect your ability to earn Instawork Gold for the next month.

If you’d like to appeal the cancellation, please contact support with your reasoning and attach relevant documentation as evidence (e.g. doctor's note, proof of car repair, jury summons). Please allow a couple of weeks for us to review and respond to your appeal. If we approve the appeal, we won’t count it as a cancellation. It will still not count as a gig completed.
