Here’s another way to earn free gift cards, submitted by reader Ilyssa:
I had an idea to offer for your 31 Ways to Earn Extra Cash Before Christmas series. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with, or have joined, Crowdtap yet. It’s a newer website that allows you to complete actions (very unique actions) to earn points. Your points can be redeemed for Amazon gift cards. I’ve only been a member for 5 months and I’ve already earned $75 in Amazon gift cards.
The actions are pretty fun actually. First, you can answer “Quick Hits” that are quick questions like, “What is your favorite fall accessory?” The Quick Hits range in point value from 10-50 points each. They also give you challenges which are worth 1,000 points to 40,000 points.
Recently, I’ve been challenged to make an AT&T themed pumpkin (1,000 points), have an Old Navy party where Crowdtap provided me with free coupons for 4 cardigans, skirts, and scarves (10,000 points), tweet about Woolite (1,000 points), share things on my Facebook wall (800 points) and the list goes on.
The Old Navy party has been my favorite action so far. I got to invite 3 friends to shop with me at Old Navy. Crowdtap provided us each with a coupon for a cardigan, skirt and scarf. We took tons of pictures and truly had a wonderful time.
I’ve had a great time on the site. I find the creative challenges fun and interesting. It’s really easy to join. And you can earn gift cards quick. A $10 Amazon gift card is only 20,000 points.
If you haven’t joined yet, it’s totally worth your time. Here’s my referral link, if you’re interested. They give 100 points for each person you refer. -Ilyssa
