OK, OK, confession time.  I’m addicted to Amazon.

I mean, come on.  It’s basically the world’s largest store, and I can shop there in my pajamas with the click of a button.

And you know what?  I do my Amazon shopping 100% guilt-free because it’s all done with gift cards I got for free.

And today I’m going to let you in on my little secret by telling you my top 4 ways to earn free Amazon gift cards.

You ready?  Here they are.

1. Survey Junkie

There are only a few legit survey sites out there. Most of them are gross and spammy, but Survey Junkie is 100% legit and does not send you spammy junk emails.

Its payouts are excellent, and it pays you either in Amazon gift cards or Paypal cash!

Survey Junkie Gift Cards
You can take surveys in your spare time or while watching TV. You can even take them from your phone while on the bus or waiting in line at the store. The possibilities for earnings are endless!

Also, Survey Junkie’s interface is super smooth and intuitive (unlike the majority of survey company websites that look like they were built in 1997), and members are paid in cash via Paypal.

Oh, and Survey Junkie also has an 8.9/10 rating on TrustPilot — the highest of any online survey company.

Survey Junkie Surveys

Another great thing about Survey Junkie is that they tell you exactly how much you can expect to earn in what amount of time per survey.

For example, before I even begin, I know the survey below will make me 125 points (which equals $1.25) for 8 minutes of my time. Not too shabby!

2. Swagbucks

You will get a $5 bonus toward Amazon gift cards if you click here to sign up through our Swagbucks $5 bonus link!

So Swagbucks is basically my free Amazon gift card secret weapon.

And frankly I have no idea how many free Amazon gift cards I’ve gotten through Swagbucks.

But whatever the number is, it’s definitely in the hundreds of dollars.  It may actually be over $1,000 at this point.

Amazon Gift Cards on Swagbucks
You earn points simply by logging into Swagbucks while you do everyday stuff like online shopping or searching the web.

And then you redeem these points for things like free Amazon gift cards or even PayPal cash.

Generally, you need 2,500 Swagbucks to purchase a $25 Amazon gift card.

But once a month Swagbucks lets you redeem a $25 Amazon gift card for only 2,200 Swagbucks!

I do this pretty much every month.

4. Personal Capital

We all have blindspots in our cash flow, and it’s important to nip them in the bud now before they add up over the years.

(Remember, saving a measly $5 now could mean an extra $364.45 in retirement! Can you imagine how you can grow your money if you saved an extra $5 every month?)

We use the free app Personal Capital to track our monthly spending.

Your account balances are updated in real time!

We personally use it to track our wealth and love the easy-to-use interface.

Also, for a limited time, Personal Capital is offering a free $20 Amazon gift card to new users who create an account through our $20 Bonus Link and links their first investment account.

Check out the video below to learn more about how Personal Capital can help you keep your finances on track.

If You Shop on Amazon, Check Out This App

If you’re a regular Amazon shopper, you can earn money each month simply by letting a research company track your purchase history.

Shoptracker will instantly send you a free $3 Visa gift card, plus another $3 for every month you keep it installed if you sign up through our link.

It’s not a fortune, but it adds up!

Also, they don’t do anything weird with the information.  They simply want to help companies better understand what people are purchasing online these days so they can serve you better.

Thanks for the ideas! I know that lots of places give you gift cards, but there are some places you recommend that I have not used previously.
