Yes, you can get Amazon gift cards for free. Not many people know that there are actually several ways to start racking up free Amazon gift cards online.

Who doesn't love Amazon? I sure do. Amazon gift cards are a gem because you can get nearly anything you want on there.

No joke, in my last post I covered 20 cool gifts under $25 which absolutely surprised me.

But how can we get free Amazon gift cards you ask?

How to Get Free Amazon Gift Cards

In the early Amazon days, you would have to wait several days to get your goods. But with Amazon Prime, you can get it lightning fast in usually only two days.

If you’re a fan of Amazon, you’ll probably love scoring free Amazon gift cards. And there are many ways to score Amazon freebies online. Following are our top 3 favorite ways to get free Amazon gift cards.

1. Amazon Trade-in Program

Why not turn your “trash” into treasure? Send books, video games, tablets, e-readers, smart home devices and more to the Amazon Trade-In program. You’ll get Amazon gift cards in return, which you can use to buy more Amazon goodies.

The Amazon Trade-In program is super simple; just go here, choose what you have to trade in and follow the steps for submitting your items. Once approved, check out with your free Amazon gift card!

2. Playing Games

There are a ton of apps that you can download on iOS and Android devices that allow you to play games in return for gift cards to Amazon and other popular retailers.

While playing games in return for Amazon gift cards sounds like a dream — it's totally possible. Want to give it a try?

These apps will PAY YOU to play games on your mobile device.

  1. Mistplay (Android) – If you have an android device, you can download this app and start getting Amazon gift cards for playing new games.
  2. Solitaire Cube – Earning Amazon gift cards by playing games on your phone sounds like a dream. But this app really pays you for playing solitaire with cash rewards.
  3. You can download more game apps to win real money here.

3. Amazon Credit Cards

If you're looking for a rewards credit card and you think the Amazon Rewards Visa Card is worth it, consider applying. It gives you 3% back on Amazon purchases, 2% at restaurants, gas stations and drug stores.

This card is not bad, it offers 5% back at Amazon and Whole Foods Market, 2% cash back at gas stations, and 1% back on utilities, rideshare, and all other purchases. Get started today and you’ll get a $100 Amazon gift card free.

4. Online Surveys

The next thing you can do is sign up for Survey Junkie which pays you, in Amazon gift cards or Paypal cash, to watch fun videos & take online surveys.

By spending just 5-10 minutes per day on this (either on your lunch break or during TV commercial breaks) you can earn and save an extra $50/month in Amazon gift cards. More people should be doing this (if they want free Amazon gift cards).

Survey Junkie is one of the easiest ways to earn free Amazon gift cards simply by taking surveys in your free time. The interface is super smooth and intuitive (unlike the majority of survey company websites that look like they were built in 1997).

Oh, and Survey Junkie also has an 8.9/10 rating on TrustPilot — the highest of any online survey company. This is one is the more reputable survey companies out there and I use it often.

Shopkick is a free app that enables you to earn points called “kicks” by doing tasks while shopping. These can include walking into a store, scanning the bar code of an item in-store or using its iPhone and Android application if you are purchasing something online.

You can redeem kicks for gifts cards, including Amazon gift cards.

6. Reward Sites


Who doesn’t love Swagbucks? This reward site lets you earn money in so many ways like taking surveys, shopping online, or playing games, but many of our readers love racking up SB (Swagbucks) watching videos in their spare time.

You can cash out your SBs as an Amazon gift card (score!) or get your cash by PayPal.

Many claim this to be one of the best online survey companies out there.

Your options currently range from a $3 Amazon gift card, for which you’ll need 300 SBs, to a $500 Amazon gift card, for which you’ll need 50,000 SBs. It's not that hard to rack up just by using Swagbucks a few minutes a day.

There’s also a gift card for a three-month subscription to Audible, the audiobook company owned by Amazon. You’ll need 4,500 SBs for that. The point is, you have a lot of rewards to choose from.

Best part, sign up here and you will be rewarded with a $10 Amazon sign up bonus.

7. Cash Back Apps


This is another easy way to get free Amazon gift cards (surprise!)

The app you should know about is Ibotta. This cell phone app is available for iOS or Android phones, helps you earn Amazon gift cards off your grocery receipts.

Yup, for real.

You can likely rack up the $20.00 to cash out within a few weeks just by scanning your grocery receipts monthly.

It’s also one of our favorite savings apps as you can earn anywhere from 50 cents to $5 off everything you buy. It’s not brand specific either, you can scan any brand of cheese for 50 cents off, for example.

If you do regularly coupon, you can still use the app and get a rebate. You can essentially get paid to save.

Best part, sign up here and you will be rewarded with a $10 Amazon GC bonus.

8. Scanning Your Grocery Receipts


Fetch Rewards is a free grocery savings app that rewards you with Amazon gift cards just for snapping pictures of your receipts.
