Things You Definitely DON’T Want to Do
(a.k.a. surefire ways to earn a lot less rewards points, not get free gift cards, or even lose your account)
DON’T DO THIS: While Watching Videos to Earn Gift Cards
Automatically Skip the Content: Our videos are meant to be enjoyed like television. Thus, feel free to skip the content you don't like, but don't go beyond that.
Use an Auto-refresher: Auto-refreshers aren't allowed at BentoFox, Hideout.tv or Smores.tv.
Run Any Sort of Script: Running scripts is against the rules and will get you banned from BentoFox, Hideout.tv or Smores.tv.
Ignore Device Limits: Don’t watch BentoFox on more than 1 screen per device and more than 3 devices total per household. This includes a mix of mobile and desktop devices. Each device must also be associated with a unique viewer. We understand that you like to put it on smart TV’s, so you can watch around the house, but currently you can only stream to 3 devices per household at a time. Please note that the 3 device limit applies to Smores.tv and Hideout.tv as well. Thus, if you want to use Hideout.tv, Smores.tv, and BentoFox at the same time, you must still abide by the 3-device limit.
Do Anything Else Meant to Game It: Don’t be uncool…it’s free.
DON’T DO THIS: While Completing Surveys to Earn Gift Cards
Use Bogus Info When Completing Surveys: If you want to keep receiving surveys, and ensure your account remains in good standing, it’s vital that you always make sure to use valid and accurate information when completing surveys.
Use Inaccurate Info When Creating Your Survey Profile: When creating your survey profile, make sure to always use accurate info. By doing so, you’ll ensure that you get more surveys that relate to your interests, hobbies, and lifestyle.
“Straight-line” or Speeding Through a Survey: By taking the time to answer survey questions accurately, based on your experiences, you’ll receive surveys more often and the surveys will also be tied more closely to your interests, hobbies, and lifestyle.

Things You Definitely Want to Do
(a.k.a. ways to earn more rewards and have a more enjoyable experience at BentoFox)
DO THIS: While Watching Videos to Earn Gift Cards
Come Back Often to Watch More Videos: We're constantly adding new videos and channels, thus the more you watch, the more cool things you'll discover. So, go ahead, watch our videos at home, while cleaning, at the beach, at the mall, while eating dinner, etc. You'll also earn more rewards if you watch more too!
Get the Full Experience: Maximize your screen size and turn up the volume to fully enjoy the content and earn rewards.
Keep the Sound On: You're probably going to be quite bored watching videos with the sound off, and you'll definitely earn less rewards by muting videos as well.
Don’t Get in a Channel Rut: Try switching channels to discover new videos and awesome contributors.
Chrome is Actually Gold: If watching videos on desktop, make sure to always use Google Chrome to get the best viewing experience.
DO THIS: While Completing Surveys to Earn Gift Cards
Complete Your Profile: Make sure to complete your survey profile. This step is necessary in order for you to be able to start receiving custom-tailored surveys. Don’t worry, we’ll never share your info, and we’ll even give you a few rewards points for completing it!
Don’t Give Up: If you enter valid details in response to a survey, and you are disqualified from that survey, don't worry! The system is learning more about you and will start generating more aligned surveys for you to continue earning with. When you’re a new user, it may be common to experience a few survey disqualifications at the start.
Keep Your Info Updated: Feel free to proactively update your profile details as necessary. If something changes over time, make sure to update your profile to keep getting relevant surveys.
