Since you can buy just about anything on Amazon, a gift card can be easier to redeem than PayPal cash or other gift cards. Chances are Amazon is your #1 choice for online shopping. Sometimes, you get a redemption bonus by getting a gift card instead of cash!
While you can spend PayPal cash virtually anywhere online, you can skip a step in the redemption process by transferring the money from your PayPal account to your bank account before you have enough money to cover an Amazon purchase. As soon as you receive your Amazon gift code, you can redeem it on Amazon and the money is in your Amazon account ready to spend.
Each rewards program has different membership requirements. All of these recommendations are available to U.S. residents; certain programs only offer Amazon gift cards to U.S. residents and only offer to cash payments to international participants.
You might also have to be at least 18 years old to join, but many of these recommendations also let teens at least 13 years old join with parental consent.
Most activities only take 15 minutes or less. Some apps work in the background and reward you for your activity with no additional effort required after you sign-up and install their app on your computer, phone, or tablet.
Yes, and I recommend it. So many of the ways mentioned above involve already things you’re doing. I’m sure you can scan a few receipts and I am positive you have shopped online. I bet if you had an extra hour per week you could take an online survey. The more things you try, the more things you can buy again on Amazon.
That answer depends on what you enjoy doing. Online surveys are the most common way to earn gift cards because you only need 10 to 15 minutes at a time, but they aren’t the only way. As you can tell from this list, it’s possible to earn gift cards for doing anything you already do on a regular basis. You need to find the tasks that you enjoy most and pursue them. After that, join the website with the highest payout per task or best redemption options to maximize your effort.
Some programs offer Amazon gift cards as small as $1, but others can be as high as $25. The average minimum reward amount for most programs is $5, and you usually don’t get a discount for “banking” up you points for a higher award amount. In other words, you will pay 500 points for a $5 card and 2,500 points for a $25 card; not 2,000 points for a $25 card.
Personally, I prefer using platforms with smaller balance amounts because it means I can cash out sooner and maintain a constant momentum of getting a gift card on a regular basis! If you don’t frequently visit a website, it can take almost a year to get a $25 gift card, and you’re more likely to give up and not earn anything at all.
Most gift cards are digitally delivered via email within 24 hours of your request. Some websites still have the option to mail your gift card if you prefer a physical gift card instead.
