Paid Survey / Reward Websites
Survey sites remain one of the best ways to get free eBay gift cards online. We have a post covering our Top Reward Websites of 2019, which I recommend you read sometime for more info. Survey sites are very popular and its a very saturated market which means you have a lot of options to pick from.
Swagbucks is generally always placed near the top of any list and it’s clear to see why. The website is very easy to use and they have such a large selection of ways to earn points and rewards to pick from. They also have one of the lowest withdrawal minimums at 300 SB (SwagBucks) = $3 USD.
InboxDollars not only offers you a nifty $5 sign up bonus but they also have some very fun game-like activities that all earn you more points that can be redeemed for cash and prizes. The games lean more towards light gambling, but you aren’t risking your points by playing. It’s definitely an interesting twist on the reward/survey sites genre.
PrizeRebel has been going strong for such a long time that they’ve built a reputation for perseverance. They’re always getting new survey offers in for their userbase and their reward selection isn’t anything to scoff at. There’s a low minimum withdrawal of 500pts -> $5 USD.
MyPoints has been overlooked y quite a lot of people including myself for a long time. But now I’m putting them on everyone’s radar as a strong GPT and cash-back contender. You read that right, this service doubles as a cash-back shopping portal website and a GPT (get paid to) survey website with some fantastic rewards to boot.
InstaGC is pretty well known at this point as being a very nice place to get some free eBay gift cards delivered to your inbox lightning-quick. Yes, the “insta” in instagc.com isn’t just for show, their users brag about how fast the website is at getting their gift card sent to them. They have a super low minimum redeem amount of $1 / 100pts.
Shopping Sites & Apps
What’s better than saving money when you’re shopping? Well I’d argue earning free points that you can redeem for gift cards, cash and prizes would be better. Read our Best Cash Back Websites & Apps article for more knowledge.
Rakuten (Ebates) has gotten a new name and they’re still going strong after all this time. I love to see the hauls and savings that people are posting and bragging about on their social media pages thanks to Rakuten. Rakuten works like all other cash-back websites where you buy something through their shopping portal and you get some cash-back. You can even download their nifty browser extension if you want.
BeFrugal has been dishing out savings for a while now and they have made some bold guarantees when t comes to maximizing savings and cash-back for their users. There’s also a $10 bonus when you make an account by following our referral link.
TopCashBack is one of the most generous cash back sites, but it’s set up for US users mainly, but there are other sites on this list that are more broad in scope. There’s a nice sign up bonus and an app you can use to shop and save on the go.
Honey is a web browser extension that you definitely should have downloaded by now. All it does is check for valid coupon codes and finds the best one for you at checkout. It does this all automatically for you and you’ll even earn points you can redeem for gift cards and cash.
10. Capital One Shopping
Capital One Shopping (Wikibuy) is a great extension that integrates in any web browser. Like honey, it will find you the best coupon codes and deals when you’re shopping online. Then it will automatically apply each coupon until it finds the best one.
ReceiptHog is an app that requires you to take a pic of your receipt and it will scan the receipt for any qualifying purchases. You just need to make sure the picture is well lit, clear and shows the items, prices, store name and date of transaction. Then just upload the photo and let the app do the rest. It’s a little more hands on, but that isn’t always a bad thing.
ShopAtHome offers a ten dollar bonus when you make a qualifying purchase of at least $25 within 60 days of creating your account. They have built up a solid reputation and userbase over the years and are a great cash-back option. Of course you can use your savings to get some free eBay gift cards.
ExtraBux not only has a great referral system, but they also offer a nice $20 bonus for new users that complete all the required steps and criteria. You can also get some nice coupons from them too.
14. Search Social Media
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are nice places to start looking for giveaways and sweepstakes to enter in. Of course you shouldn’t expect to find the exact gift card of your choice, but it’s some good freebies to try for if you’re feeling lucky. Here are some examples of what to search for on Twitter / Instagram: #giveaway | #contest | #competition | #sweepstakes | #prize | #freebie | #freebiefriday
15. Ask for Gift Cards Instead of Regular Gifts
This one is pretty self explanatory and I prefer when the person I’m buying for just tells me what they want. If you know what you want, it’s usually a better option to just tell them what to get you instead of having them guess and you needing to return the item later.
