Paid Survey / Reward Websites
We have a post covering our Top Reward Websites of 2019, which I recommend you take a look at. Survey (reward) sites are the bread and butter of all “Get Paid To” sites that pay users for completing tasks.
Swagbucks is advertised everywhere and by everyone, but they honestly put in a lot of effort to be the number one reward site. 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. They also have many different ways to earn points, for example you can get points by watching videos or by simply searching the web. With a little effort, you’ll start making progress towards that free Windows gift card or cash.
InboxDollars has a $5 sign up bonus and a unique “Scratch n’ Win” game. Unfortunately, there’s quite a steep minimum withdrawal amount of $30, so keep that in mind. Just like Swagbucks, they offer quite a few ways to earn, although not as much. You can still earn free Windows gift cards quite readily if you have some time and effort to put into it.
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). You’ll mostly be taking surveys to earn points, so if that isn’t your thing you may want to find another site.
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. You should expect your free windows gift cards very quick in your inbox once you’ve redeemed the required amount of points.
Shopping Sites & Apps
Many 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.
Rakuten (Ebates) is a popular cash-back website that pays users whenever they purchase from any supported online store. They also handle the checkout side by applying any available coupon codes before you finalize your orders. They even have a browser extension that will alert you if a product can be found on another site for a lower price.
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. You can save money while shopping at many merchants from Amazon to Pizzahut and everyone in between.
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 which is pretty cool.
Dosh is an extremely popular cash back app that’s doing everything right. All you have to do is link your credit / debit card and you’ll 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!
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!
10. 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.
12. Microsoft Rewards
Microsoft Rewards gives you points when you search on Bing, shop, play games, and complete daily/weekly quizes & offers. Unfortunately their gift card options are quite limited and you cannot withdraw as cash, but there’s an option for a Windows gift card. If you’re an Xbox user or use Bing already then it may be worthwhile to try this service out.
13. 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. Here are some examples of what to search for on Twitter / Instagram: #giveaway | #contest | #competition | #sweepstakes | #prize | #freebie | #freebiefriday
14. Ask for Gift Cards Instead of Regular Gifts
This is the simplest way to get gift cards even if it seems a little on the nose. Asking your friends and relatives to get you gift cards can feel a little strange. Most people have a difficult time picking out a gift for someone else, so this will simplify the process for them as well.
15. Our Giveaways
We’re always looking for a way to give back to our community, and one of our favorite ways is to hold giveaways! We hold giveaways for all sorts of gift card such as free Windows gift cards. The best way to be informed of these giveaways is by signing up for our newsletter. We will only send out an email if we’re holding a giveaway or we’ve found something really awesome that we think you’ll like. We don’t spam or sell your information, ever.
