Looking for legitimate ways to get free Amazon gift cards? You have come to the right place.
I love shopping on Amazon! One of the reasons why is because I am able to get a lot of free Amazon gift cards (with the tips I’ll share below) and I can basically shop for free!
I also have Amazon Prime which I love because I get all my orders fast and of course tons of other Prime benefits.
Below I’ll share with you some of my favorite ways to get free Amazon gift cards. I’ll focus on the ones that are not too time-consuming and the ones that you can do whenever you have a little free time in the day.
Some of the ways I list only take a minute, like the first one, because you’re just scanning your grocery receipts every time you shop. Others take a little longer because you have to watch a video or do a quick survey and some others are automated!
So go through the list and check them all out! Oh, and did I mention they are all free to join and I personally use them all.
10 WAYS TO GET FREE AMAZON GIFT CARDS
1. Fetch Rewards
Fetch Rewards is one of my favorite ways to earn Amazon gift cards. It’s super easy because all you do is take pictures of your receipts! Yup!
Check out my full Fetch Rewards Review.
Plus use my referral code: BM2BY, during signup and you’ll get 1,500 Fetch Points ($1.50 in points) when you complete your first receipt!

Below is a screenshot of my Fetch Rewards account and some of my most recent gift card rewards. As you can see in November alone I was able to cash out $15 in Amazon gift cards with just this first method.
InstaGC has been around but I just recently started using it and I cannot wait to cash out.
How does InstaGC work?
To get free gift cards for your favorite stores like Amazon, you need to collect points. While there are endless ways to earn points, I find watching videos while doing work on my computer, the easiest way for me.
I like that you can pop out the video so you can surf the web, read emails, etc while watching and listening to the videos.
The current ways to earn points are watching videos, listening to online radio, visiting sites, testing apps or games, shopping, filling out surveys, and completing general tasks. They are continuously adding new ways to earn as well.
After completing these activities you will be rewarded with points that can be used towards your next free gift card.
Signup for InstaGC.
I’ve been a member of Swagbucks for a few years and it’s a great way to get some free Amazon gift cards or even cash!
How does Swagbucks work?
You can earn points for watching entertaining videos, searching the web, answering surveys, and more. Redeem your points for free gift cards to your favorite retailers like Amazon or Walmart, to name a few, or get cashback from PayPal.
User Tip: You can also earn points for printing and using coupons printed from the Swagbucks website! I love this!
You can also earn a 300 Swagbuck bonus by using my referral link! Once you signup you will get your own referral link so you can refer friends and get more points.

MyPoints has been around a very long time! It was one of the first reward programs that I joined. It’s free to join and super easy to earn points towards rewards like Amazon gift cards.
How does MyPoints Work?
You can earn points by shopping online, taking surveys, watching videos, reading emails and more. You can then go and redeem your points for gift cards like Amazon gift cards, travel miles or cash via PayPal.

Shopkick is super easy and fun. I make sure to always have it on while I am shopping and running errands.
How does ShopKick work?
Shopkick is a free app that rewards you with points that you can turn into gift cards simply by walking into stores (love this part!) and for doing other activities like scanning certain products while you are in the store.
When you open the app it will tell you which products to look for and scan. You will get points for scanning the item. It’s actually kind of fun like a treasure hunt.
When you get enough points you can exchange them for Amazon gift cards and more!
Sign up for Shopkick and start earning!
I joined InboxDollars back in 2015 and kind of forgot about them until recently so I just started using them again.
How does InboxDollars work?
InboxDollars members earn cash for doing what they love online. Members can earn points for reading emails, taking surveys, playing games, and signing up for offers (not required).
I try and stick to the easy stuff like reading emails, taking surveys and playing games if you have the time. If you don’t want to get these emails in your regular primary email inbox you can create a free Gmail account just for all your rewards programs.
Check out InboxDollars.
7. Use a Reward Credit Card
If you use a credit card which a lot of people do I highly recommend Discover Card which gives you tons of cashback and you can actually use your Discover cashback as a payment option on Amazon!
Discover Card is a credit card, but I use it mainly to get rewards that I can cash into gift cards ( or apply toward 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% cash back 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 cashback for a $25 gift card or $45 for a $50 gift card etc. in certain categories.
PLUS Become a Discover Cardmember now, and you’ll get a $50 Cashback Bonus with your first purchase within 3 months! 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!
Capterra is a website where you can check reviews for certain software and get reviews and feedback for your own software.
How Does Capterra work?
After writing a couple reviews on their website I was invited to get paid a $10 Amazon Gift Card for each review up to 10 reviews that month. Everyone I referred so far their way has gotten invited after a few reviews but I am not sure exactly how they choose who can participate.
It’s definitely worth a try as reviews are quick and easy.
Check out Capterra.
9. Microsoft Rewards
Microsoft 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.
10. Take Advantage of the Amazon Trade-In program
The Amazon Trade-In program allows customers to receive an Amazon.com Gift Card in exchange for thousands of eligible items including video games, Kindle E-readers, books, and more.
The process is easy and convenient with an immediate offer and free shipping. This may not be for everyone but If you’re like most people you probably have something you can trade in and earn a gift card.
Check out the Amazon Trade-In Program.
TIP: If you want to sign up for multiple or all of these mentioned you can create a free Gmail Account to gather all your emails so you don’t bombard your regular email account. I do this and it makes it much easier to organize my emails. Either that or set up a filter in your regular email inbox to sort emails into certain folders.
