7 Ways to Earn Amazon Gift Cards for FREE
When you’re on a really tight budget, sometimes even $5-$10 per month can help stretch your budget so much further. And that’s why Amazon can be a budgeter’s best friend.
There are SO many different ways to earn free Amazon gift cards and Amazon carries just about anything you can think of!
So that means you can use Amazon gift cards to stretch your grocery or household supplies budget, to afford diapers, to buy gifts for others on a really tight budget, or even to just buy something nice for yourself that you’ve really been wanting and can’t make room for in the budget!
These are my favorite ways to earn Amazon gift cards. And while you may not earn hundreds of dollars from each, you’ll find that you can easily earn at least $5-$10 per month from each of these — and that really adds up if you try to regularly use at least 2-3 of these methods!
Swagbucks is my all-time favorite way to earn Amazon gift cads and I’ve been using it for years now.
It is a site that rewards you for completing tasks and doing certain actions online. When you complete a task, you’ll earn points called swagbucks that you can cash in for free gift cards.
Some of the more popular ways to earn are doing online searches, signing up for offers, printing coupons, completing special offers, and taking polls.

Shopkick is a mobile app that allows you to earn gift cards for walking into stores and scanning products.
The best part of Shopkick is that you don’t have to buy anything to earn the gift cards, and it can be done when you’re already out and about!
Shopkick is one of the easiest and quickest ways to earn Amazon gift cards — especially if you’re frequently out running errands or shopping.

Also, you can currently get a FREE $5 gift card just for signing up!
Ibotta is one of my favorite money-making apps, and it’s a great way to save money on groceries and more — without clipping coupons!
Simply look in the Ibotta app to find rebates for grocery items you’re buying and scan your receipts to get credit.
Earnings add up pretty fast and you can cash out at $20. It’s a super easy way to earn Amazon gift cards for your grocery purchases.

Do you have any loose change lying around? Gather it up and take it to your nearest Coinstar kiosk!
You can trade in your coins for Amazon gift cards without any transaction fee. It’s super simple.
I did this last year right before Christmas and had $208 in coins! I traded them in for an Amazon gift card and used it to buy Christmas gifts!
Go here to find a Coinstar location near you.
InstaGC is a site that is similar in nature to Swagbucks. I’ve tried it out a little bit in the past and liked it, and several readers have commented with rave reviews about it!
You can earn points for simple activities like taking surveys, watching videos, searching the web, and shopping online.
They have tons of gift cards you can trade in points for — including Amazon gift cards!

PrizeRebel is another site that seems very similar to Swagbucks. I’m actually testing this one out right now and plan to do a full review in the near future!
It’s mostly surveys and video based from what I can tell, but they also have opportunities to sign up for free offers and do special tasks to earn points.
I’d suggest focusing on watching videos and taking their longer surveys. I seem to be getting multiple opportunities per day to take surveys worth 77 points!

IGers are pushing ibota and fetch, which one is best? Can they be uses together?
Crystal Paine says
YES! I use them both together every week! So sign up for both!
Referring to your Home Depot visit – I love the IDEA of decorating but actually doing it is a different story. My husband has a better eye than I do. So he’ll put things together & I say yay or nay. Very rarely have I put anything on our walls because they always end up lopsided or not looking so good. I’m not good at measuring & I’ve seen my friends measure before they put things up. Nope. That’s just not me. So you’re not alone!
As far as the succulents – don’t overwater. That’s how I’ve killed many of mine. I’ve learned from my green thumb mom to water just a tiny bit every 7-10 days. Mom always knows best!
Crystal Paine says
Thank you so much!
Been using a couple of these methods over the past two years. I live near a 365 Whole Foods, which has much better prices than the regular store on several things, purchased a few things and was surprised to receive the email that I had a $10 Amazon credit for prime day also (before seeing it on your blog). I’ve been looking at robot vacuums and found one with really good reviews and not as expensive, and have enough gift card money to cover the purchase as is, but waiting for prime day to use the discount and hoping for an ever better promo deal!
That’s a great surprise! -Jordan, MSM Team
I use BING for a search engine and rack up points using it exclusively for searches and doing their quizzes and polls. I use the points to get Amazon gift cards in increments of $5. I usually save my points all year to help with Christmas shopping!
Crystal Paine says
Thanks so much for recommending them! I used to do them and didn’t know they were still around!!
Ashley P says
Yes! I do Bing Rewards too!
And, you can have more than one account per household, so hubby and I both do it and get twice as much!
Don’t forget MyPoints!
Thanks for the reminder! 🙂 -Jordan, MSM Team
