One question I get asked more than I can count is “Where can I earn Amazon Gift Cards for free?” Here is a list of 45, all of which I USE! Some I use more than others like I use Perk Daily but ones like Ibotta and Shopkick are only used while I shop. Right now I am using the gift cards to help my budget out and I save them to get a free gift for birthdays and Christmas!
45+ Ways to Earn Amazon Gift Cards for Free
The BIGGEST thing to remember: You should NEVER have to pay to join a site to earn money. If you have to pay 99.9% of the time it's a scam. So without further ado here is the LARGEST list online!
Swag Bucks – This is the first option everyone thinks of and I want to cover it now. You earn points called ‘Swagbucks' for doing just about everything, searching the internet, playing games, watching TV and more. These can then be traded in for everything from Cash to electronics and Yes Amazon Gift Cards.
InstaGC – When I signed up for InstaGC I did many of the site visits for points. Now I do more surveys here then anything. This site has many way to earn from signing up for offers, visiting sites, surveys, listening to music, fantasy sports games, and more. As their name says the gift cards are INSTANT. You click redeem and are given a code right then and there. They do tend to run out of some code so I save up for the bigger amounts. I just cashed in another $25 gift card from them!
Grab Points – Is a little lesser know but still the same thing as Swagbucks but in a much easier to use site I think. I have cashed out for many free Amazon Gift Cards here as well. I tend to do my web searching with Swagbucks and use Grab Points for their games and newly added radio to earn points. Use code MQN9K1G when signing up for a bonus 500 points.
Gift Hulk – Gift Hulk is another search for points site. I love using Gift Hulk for their games and TV as well. They offer many secret codes to redeem via email as well. Points are then traded for items like Amazon Gift Cards
iRazoo – Ok my # 1 reason for using iRazoo is they allow you to earn 3000 points a day watching Tv (which can be on in the background) and that is equal to $5 gift card a day! IF you did that every day (though not many of us can!) you would be earning $1,825 a year just from this one feature. I LOVE IT! Use code J2PWZ5 when signing up for bonus points.
Perk – Earn points for watching videos, searching the Internet, playing games, and even browsing the internet. You can earn $1 a day just for turning on the videos and forgetting about them!

I also want to point out one of my favorite ways to make money at home is via blogging! See what you need to know to get started blogging.
I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
