Simple Ways To Earn Amazon Gift Cards

When I think about Amazon gift cards, I get all giddy!  Amazon is definitely my favorite online store, what is not to love. Recently I’ve been earning more gift cards easily using a few different programs. I thought it was time to share and spread the wealth. No, you won’t get rich here…. but you can rack up some free gift cards before you know it with just a little effort.  I personally DON’T like doing surveys to earn rewards, so these ideas all revolve on ways to earn without doing tedious surveys. You’ll find that I scarcely ever post about survey sites and its not because they don’t work.  I have very limited time and simply can’t commit to continuously working in order to possibly get gift cards. I want them and need to see that my efforts will be paid for in a short period of time!

These are all sites that I have cashed in and received actual gift codes here, so they work!  Without any further explanation, let me tell you about these programs so you can start earning too!


Here is an easy peasy program that I wish had been around when I used to grab fast foods more.  But nevertheless, I’ve been able to earn Amazon Gift Cards just by doing what I always do.  Participating restaurants and locations include Quiznos, Dunkin Donuts, Outback Steakhouse, 7-11, Arby’s, Taco Bell, Regal Cinemas, Burger King and many more.  You earn Plink Points when you make purchases at participating locations. You’ll need to sign up with the debit or credit card that you will be shopping with, that is how they will track your purchases.  Sign up with Plink and get more info.

The other way to earn with Plink is to refer your friends. Once you sign up, you can get your referral link.  You will earn 100 Plink Points for each friend. So, for every 5 friends that you refer you’ll have 500 Plink Points which can be redeemed for a $5 Amazon Gift Card!

As an added bonus, you also get random Plink Points for participating. This makes it even easier to to payout!

Gift Hulk / Swagbucks

I used to be a hard core Swagbucks, but then I got a little too busy for my own good. I’ve earned a whole swell of Amazon Gift Cards from them. In the meantime, recently I stumbled on Gift Hulk.  I had referred a small handful of friends to both programs over time.  Then, when I logged in after a few months, the magic was discovered!!

Not only can you take intentional action to earn points towards gift cards with both of these sites… BUT the beauty is that you can earn more points when your referred friends are earning their own points. YES, if you build up a nice referral list, you can actually earn by virtually sitting back and slowly earn your free Amazon Gift Cards over time.

If your up for a little more effort, you can actively take action on both of these sites to earn gift cards a lot quicker, but I promised you EASY ways to earn ;)

How To Maximize Referrals

So, you’ve signed up? Now what? You are going to want to get your referral links out there. You can share them with friends and family by email, share on Social Networks like Facebook and Twitter. You can use a program to schedule weekly posts or tweets using free tools such as HootSuite. Plan a weekly or even daily tweet with information and your referral links. Before you know it, you will be racking up the benefits and the free gift cards!
