How to Get Free Gift Cards
I don’t know about you, but I hate to spend my hard earned money on any of my “wants” and if I’m honest, even some of my “needs.” Because of this, I had to come up with a way to be able to buy things I wanted and to save money on things that I needed without having to take it out of my budget.
If you follow my blog you know that I’m always looking for ways to get things free if possible or really cheap so I was able to come up with a strategy to get free gift cards to places I shop often.
Gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Target and more.
I was able to do this by joining a bunch of different free reward programs that reward me with gift cards for doing simple and easy tasks. I then turn around and use those gift cards to get things I want or need for free!
One of my favorite types of gift cards I like to earn are Amazon gift cards because well, Amazon has everything!

Now let’s get to the exciting part and learn how I earn free gift cards each and every month and how you can too!
Here are My Favorite Ways to Earn Free Gift Cards Each Month
Swagbucks is a popular rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online.
You can earn points when you shop at your favorite retailers, watch entertaining videos, search the web, answer surveys and find great deals.
You can redeem points for gift cards to your favorite retailers like Amazon and Walmart or get cash back from Paypal. Swagbucks has already paid out over $120 million in cash and free gift cards.
It’s similar to Ibotta but all you do is scan your receipts and you can get rewards based on what’s on your receipt!
Use My Referral Code: BM2BY, during signup and you’ll get 1,500 Fetch Points ($1.50 in points) when you complete one receipt.
Take surveys right on your phone and get rewarded. Use my code: KARI2 and get 350 points towards your first reward. Bizrate Reward members receive points for completing surveys and other activities!
You may earn anywhere from 50-1,000 points per activity; activities are invite only. After receiving 5,000+ points, you can redeem them for egift cards.
Bing Rewards lets you earn credits for searching on Bing or trying new features from Bing or other Microsoft products and services.
Bing Rewards credits can be redeemed for a variety of gift cards and other rewards. Instead of using Google, just start using Bing search, and you will start earning credits super fast.
Discover Card is a credit card, but I use it mainly to get rewards that I can cash into gift cards ( or apply towards my bill).
I use my Discover card to pay my phone bill and for everyday purchases as well and then I pay it before the due date to avoid any finance charges.
Each quarter they give you 5% cashback rewards in certain categories and 1% in others. If you choose to get a gift card you can get a deal because you only need $20 cash back for a $25 gift card or $45 for a $50 gift card etc. in certain categories.
Set up autopay on your bills, pay for gas and purchases and then pay your card before the due date and you’re earning free rewards on money you would spend anyway!
Shopkick is a free app that rewards you with points that you can turn into gift cards simply by walking into stores and more for doing other activities like scanning certain products while you are in the store.
