(Updated 3/21/18) Free is my favorite four-letter word. Especially when it comes to getting free Amazon gift cards. Imagine if you consistently had a free gift card to use on all of your Amazon purchases. Well, it’s no longer a far-fetched dream. I found 8 legitimate ways to easily score a free gift card from Amazon, some of which require very little (or zero) time to complete. Happy free shopping at Amazon.com.

8 Awesome Ways to Score Free Amazon Gift Cards

1. Become an Ibotta Rock-Star

Use Ibotta for free Amazon gift cards

One of the best ways to score free Amazon gift cards is by using the Ibotta app. (Sign-up and get a free $10 bonus once you redeem your first rebate)

The free app allows you to redeem rebates at the grocery store on stuff you’ll be buying anyways. Even on generic items like milk, eggs, and bread. You can use it at any store too.

I’ve been using Ibotta for a couple years and have earned several hundred dollars in free Amazon gift cards. You can also request a cash payout as well as gift cards to dozens of other popular retailers.

2. Use TopCashBack and Score $15 Amazon Gift Card

TopCashBack gives $15 Amazon gift card

If you’re still not a Prime member, but thinking of joining, I have a way to join and score a $15 Amazon gift card in the process.

Simply join Amazon Prime via TopCashBack and you’ll get a free $15 Amazon gift card for your troubles. And by “troubles” I mean a couple minutes of your time. TOTALLY worth it.

While new and existing TopCashBack members are eligible for this deal, it does excludes current Prime members as well as Amazon Student members.

3. Use SwagBucks

Swagbucks handing out free Amazon gift cards

I’m a huge fan of using SwagBucks to score a free Amazon gift card every month.

Essentially, SwagBucks lets you earn points by doing a bunch of thigs you’d be doing anyways.

Think things like searching the web, watching viral videos, shopping online, and even earn points by playing games online.

These points, called SwagBucks, start to add up quickly and can be redeemed for free gift cards from Amazon, Walmart, and even PayPal.

The best part? You can sign-up for SwagBucks HERE for free and earn a free $5 Bonus added to your account.

4. Take Advantage of Amazon Trade-In

Amazon Trade-In

Right now, according to Amazon Trade-In, I could get $64.12 in Amazon gift cards (Amazon credits in this case) for stuff I’ve bought from them in recent months (and years).

Taking a closer look at what they’ll pay me, there are several items that I just might trade-in as I never use them.

You ship your stuff back to Amazon for free, and they’ll examine the stuff and let you know within 2 days if they’ll accept them or not.

Electronics, video games, and movies are highly wanted by Amazon, and as long as they’re in decent, working shape, they’ll pay you good money for them.

5. Try Amazon Mechanical Turk

Amazon Mechanical Turk is an online marketplace for small tasks that require human intelligence.

And guess what? Amazon will pay you to complete these small tasks, called Human Intelligence Tasks (HITs). The more complex the HITs, the more money you’ll make.

A couple examples include visiting a website and giving your “first impressions” or answer specific questions about a product.

Then once you have a balance in your MTurk account you can redeem for Amazon gift cards or credits added directly to your Amazon account.

6. Use Microsoft Bing and Edge

Microsoft Rewards

Microsoft desperately wants you to use their Bing search engine and their Edge web browser.

So much so that they’ll give you free gift cards to Amazon via the Microsoft Rewards program.

All you have to do to earn reward points is search via Bing or browse the web on their Edge web browser.

It usually takes about 5,000 points to redeem an Amazon or Walmart gift card worth $5. This tip is cool because you can just set it and forget it by setting Bing as your default browser.

7. Shop with the Right Credit Card

Amazon Rewards Visa Card

The Amazon Rewards Visa Card is definitely worth a look if you shop regularly at Amazon.com.

The card, issued by Chase bank, will not only give you 3% back on ALL of your Amazon purchases, buy you’ll get a free $70 gift card to Amazon immediately upon approval.

The card also gives you 2% back at gas stations, restaurants, and drugstores. Everything else scores you 1% back.

8. Use Prize Rebel to Complete Surveys

Prize Rebel

Sign up for free with Prize Rebel and start earning reward points by completing surveys, watching videos, and signing up for free trials.

Earn 500 points and it equates to a free $5 Amazon gift card. From what others have said about PrizeRebel, it’s pretty darn easy to earn 125 points per day, which equates to approximately $35-$40 worth of gift cards per month.

Not a bad way to earn free gift cards in your spare time.

Update 8/28/17: FYI, it appears Prize Rebel is requiring “a clear picture of your government issued ID to verify your name and address.” They’ll let you black out your ID number.

Bonus: ShopKick App

ShopKick

Another way I recently discovered to collect Amazon gift cards (by doing very little) is ShopKick.

The free Shopkick app lets you quickly build up “kicks” which you can exchange for Amazon gift cards.

Kicks are earned 3 different ways: By simply walking into stores, scanning the barcode of certain items, or buying stuff (both online and in-store).

The app has the potential to be an easy way to score free gift cards, it’s definitely worth a look.

Ask the Reader: Would you like to score free gift cards to Amazon on a regular basis? Duh, of course you would. What would you spend it on?
