Paid Survey / Reward Websites
Yes I know how most of you feel when it comes to online surveys, but the fact remains that this is the best way to get free Starbucks gift cards online. We have a post covering our Top Reward Websites of 2019, which I recommend you take a look at.
Swagbucks is an extremely popular reward website with many ways to earn points(SB), which can be redeemed for cash or gift cards. You can redeem your points for a little as $3 (300SB). They have periodic sales on their gift cards and a huge selection of gift cards. Swagbucks is a titan of this niche and they’re always adding new features and innovating on current ones.
InboxDollars is another very popular and successful reward site and it’s clear to see why. They not only offer a $5 sign up bonus, but also a unique “Scratch n’ Win” game where the more you fill the progress bar the more you stand to win if you can scratch and match three values. Unfortunately, there’s quite a steep minimum withdrawal amount of $30, so keep that in mind.
PrizeRebel has been in the survey/reward game for quite some time and is still one of the best. They have quite a few ways to earn points, a good selection of gift cards and a low withdrawal minimum ($5 – 500pts).
MyPoints is usually talked about in articles focused on cash-back shopping sites, but they actually offer rewards for taking surveys, watching videos and more! The website looks very clean and is easy to navigate as well.
InstaGC has been handing out free gift cards for quite some time now and has built up a decent reputation. They also have the lowest minimum withdrawal requirement set at $1 (100pts). They pride themselves on the speed of their gift card delivery, so much so it’s in their name.
SendEarnings is another reward site that enables its users to earn cash by completing simple tasks. They’re also ran by the same company that runs Inbox Dollars so you know they can be trusted. Oh and there’s a $5 sign up bonus up for grabs as well!
Shopping Sites & Apps
Cash back on all or most of your purchases, both online and in stores, can add up very quickly. Most of these services do offer gift card reward options or at the very least cash. Please check out our Best Cash Back Websites & Apps in 2019 for more detailed information.
Dosh allows you to link your credit / debit card and earn cash whenever you buy from select stores. This allows you to earn money without having to shop through their links/portals, unlock offers or upload receipt photos. Oh yeah, you’ll also get $5 instantly once you link your credit card!
BeFrugal guarantees the lowest cash-back of any shopping site by matching any higher cash back rate by 125%. They also have a nice selection of cash back options when you eat at select restaurants. There’s also a $10 sign up bonus.
Ibotta not only offers cash back on products, but also on produce and groceries too! There are, currently, three ways to get your cash back: upload your receipt, link your store loyalty cards or to shop through their partners’ mobile apps. Oh yeah, and there’s a very nice $20 welcome bonus available to new users that complete all the required steps!
TopCashBack claims to be the US’s most generous cash back site and to help prove that point, they’re offering a $10 bonus once you’ve earned ten dollars in cash back. They also have an app that will allow you to shop and save on the go!
Honey is the web browser extension that everyone and their mothers has been talking about. Simply put, it’s a lightweight extension that you install into your web browser and it will automatically find and apply the best coupon codes at checkout. Currently Honey is supported by over 30,000 online merchants.
WikiBuy is another browser extension that integrates nicely into Amazon and alerts you if it finds a desired product on another site for a lower price. This is a very nice app to install if you frequently shop on Amazon or other online merchants.
ReceiptHog rewards you with cash back on all qualifying purchases that it finds once you’ve uploaded a picture of your receipt. Just be sure the store name, transaction date / amount and all items are visible and let ReceiptHog do the rest! All eligible products give you some coins which can be redeemed for cash or a select few gift cards.
14. Gift Card Granny
Gift Card Granny is a very unique website that gives you cash back when you buy discounted gift cards. You can also sell your unused gift cards that are just collecting dust. Oh and you can refer your friends for a little bonus cash and download their app to earn even more.
ExtraBux also have a nice referral system and a whopping $20 bonus for new users who meet the requirements for each tier! Oh yeah, and they also offer you cash back when you shop and use their coupons, so there’s that. You’re not going to get all the features that you might from a bigger website, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to try out many options.
16. Search Social Media
There are countless giveaways being held and advertised on various social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. You just need to know what to search in order to find them, then just enter and wait.
