A lot of people are afraid to try and earn free gift cards and money online because so many times in the past these methods have turned out to be scams. I know this was my biggest concern starting out but I have found some legitimate sites over the past year that actually work! I have weeded out the bad ones and will only direct you towards the good sites! I have earned 100s of dollars towards gift cards such as Amazon, Kohl’s, and other popular retailers as well as money deposited into my PayPal account and it is all electronic so you don’t have to sit around and wait for the mail!
There are several different types of free websites and apps to earn money and they are completely free to sign up, use, and redeem your points!
Only Survey Sites
American Consumer Panel
They will email you several surveys through out the year and one short screener survey every month to see if you qualify for upcoming surveys. All surveys are pretty short (around 10-15 minutes) and even the screener surveys give you points. You can cash out to your PayPal once you reach the minimum for cash out which is 1,000 points.
Â Opinion Outpost
This is by far one of my favorite stand alone survey sites out there and the one I have been with since day 1. It is so easy to rack up points and you can choose to take the surveys through emails they send you or just go to the site and take them. I choose to turn email off because they send so many. 100 points = $10 to PayPal or Amazon or you can also get Itunes or donate to charity. You can also cash out at 50 points for $5 to Amazon. Surveys are usually a minimum of 10 – 15 points but some surveys pay out up to 25!
Another site where they email you or you can go to the site but they only send you surveys you are already eligible for through your profile answers. Not as frequent as other sites but still high paying. You can cash out at $50 forÂ an Amazon gift e-card, or cash in the form of a direct bank deposit or a virtual prepaid VISA card through a secure rewards site called Paylution. The other 2 sites I recently cashed out above but I still have a balance with this one to show you really can make it to $50.
Surveys, Offer Walls, Watch Videos, Etc.
The following sites are like this one. There is a variety of activites to do on these sites such as watching videos, taking surveys, completing advertising offers, participating polls and sweepstakes to earn points. This one also allows you to shop at your favorite retailers and earn money back in points for every $ spent! You can cash out your points for a variety of rewards besides PayPal and Amazon you can get digital gift cards for Walmart, Target, Starbucks, Ebay, Nike, Sephora, Old Navy, etc.
This one only has surveys and offer walls to earn points but everything is super easy to do and the website is very clean cut and organized which is something I love! A unique thing about this site though is you can look at local deals in your area for places like spas, restaurants, theme parks, etc. and redeem discounts that will credit your account points so it’s like a rebate. An example is shown in the picture below. Like the site above you can redeem your points for PayPal, Amazon, and other retail like AMC Theaters, Best Buy, Chilis, Foot Locker, etc. Another interesting feature is that this site offers to convert your points to the infamous but reclusive Bitcoin!
This is the by far the fastest point earning multiple tasks site I use. This one can be a little complicated at first to figure out but once you get the hang of it you’ll be earning money daily if you really wanted to. For sure do the tutorial they offer and make sure to utilize the ticker on the left side to see what others are earning points on in real time because most likely you will be eligible for those as well. I love this site because you can cash out with only 100 points which is super easy to get and it equals $1 to Amazon. You can’t cash out for PayPal until you have redeemed at least $50 in other awards. I can earn 100 points usually in 30 minutes or less. Below is a picture of the first page of the rewards page and goes all the way up to 7 pages!
Watch Music Videos, User Videos, Movie Trailers, and Game Trailers
Redeem points for PayPal, Amazon, Starbucks, Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo, Steam, etc.
