Get Free Gift Cards With These Five Simple Steps

Nothing beats free, right? But some people hesitate to check out free deals because they can’t shake the old adage “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.”

But now may be the time to eat those words, as plenty of opportunities exist for scoring free gift cards. You just need to know where to look. Here are six simple steps for getting free gift cards quickly and easily.

1. Redeem Credit Card Points

Who knew that spending can result in saving? In addition to cashback and travel expenses, you’ll find that many credit card issuers offer a variety of gift cards as a redemption option for earned points. Check your card details and promotional offers to see which cards might be best for you.

2. Take Online Surveys

No question about it: Taking an online survey is a fairly easy way to snag free gift cards. Survey sites such as Toluna and Swagbucks ask you to answer questions, complete online tasks, or watch videos in exchange for points. You can redeem earned points for partner gift cards or other rewards. Accumulating points takes a bit of time so if you’re in a hurry to snatch up some cards this might not be your best option.

3. Refer A Friend

Referrals can add up. When you recommend products or services you enjoy to someone else, you could get a gift card as a ‘thank you’ from that company. For example, refer a friend, acquaintance, or family member for Sam’s Club membership and you’ll receive a $10 e-gift card when they join. With enough referrals, you can really rack up the gift cards.

4. Trade-in Your Stuff

Forget dumping your old electronics into the landfill — fill up your wallet with gift cards instead. Many retailers such as Walmart, Amazon, and Target, allow you to trade in electronics for gift cards. If your zeroing in on Target, get an appraisal of your item’s worth on the company website, ship it, and receive a Target gift card in return.

5. Make The Most of Freebie Deals

Check out retailer deals where a free gift card is offered when you buy a certain item, especially around major holidays. Some retailer websites and weekly promotional ads alert you to items that come with free gift card deals. For example, Target’s Current Promotions page includes current gift card deals.
