How to Get Free Credits to Shop
There are a bunch of websites that give new shoppers free credits to shop and these same sites will give you more free credits to shop when you refer friends! How cool is that?
You’re getting free credits to shop and sharing these sites with your friends who also can get free money to shop so its a win-win.
This strategy to get free stuff may seem like a lot of work but if you have a lot of friends or family (either in real life or on social media), then you may be on your way to getting all sorts of free products from some popular websites.
Even if you don’t think you want to refer friends keep reading because a lot of the sites that I mention will give you a shopping credit just for signing up free, so stick around and save yourself some money.
Sites That Give You Free Credit to Shop
PLEASE NOTE: Some sites have temporarily stopped their free credits and referral programs during this time so I will try and update as often as I can.
I am in no way at all into pushing products on friends, and this strategy is not that, in fact, it is the opposite because you are sharing great shopping sites that are free to join and often offer shopping credits to your friends to save them money on their first purchase.
I love it when I can help other people by giving them money to shop, getting money when they do shop is just a great bonus!
Some of the best shopping sites will give shopping credits to the friends you refer and they will also give you credits to shop after your friend shops through your referral link. The best part is these sites are all free to sign up, and there is no obligation to buy.
These companies want to spread the word about their website and need your help to do so, and that is why they give out these shopping credits.
Below is a list of my favorites, I am using my referral links in the list just FYI :-).
Also, please note that referral credit program terms and amounts change often so while I will try to keep this article updated as best I can feel free to comment and let me know if a link or program is outdated and I will remove or update it!
Sites That Give You Free Stuff When You Sign up and When You Refer Friends
Here are my top referral credit sites, some of which give credits to both you and your friends:
Refer friends and they will send them $10 and, once they sign up, you’ll get a $10 credit for each friend who joins. I love Grove because their products are natural and safe.

They are free so why not?
Get Free Credits to Shop by Referring Friends
Make sure you go to the section of the website that says something like “refer-a-friend” (make sure you are signed in). Once you get your referral link, you can share it with friends, and you will be on your way to saving a lot of money and getting free stuff.
Share your referral link on social media to get the best results or email it to friends!
I always let my friends know that I am sharing my referral link with them so that they know and I also let them know that they can do the same afterward. Remember its a WIN-WIN for both you and your friends and family.
I will keep adding to this list as I find more. Let me know in the comments any of your favorites!
