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 Steam gift cards online. We have a post covering our Top Reward Websites of 2019, which I recommend you take a look at. Survey sites are the bread and butter of all “Get Paid To” sites that pay users for completing tasks and such.
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.
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
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.
TreasureTrooper is a very unique take on the reward site niche and offers perhaps the most unique and interesting ways to earn cash on this list. The site has custom currencies that users earn and can be exchanged for prizes and money, these items include: Arrowheads, Scales, Pearls, Gold/Platinum coins. You also get $1 for free just to sign up!
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.
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.
8. Mr. Rebates
Mr. Rebates offers its users great cash-back incentives and a nice $5 bonus on your first qualifying purchase if you sign up under our link. Not only that, but they also offer one of, if not the best referral program for any shopping site out there.
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.
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!
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!
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.
15. 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.
ShopAtHome is a cash-back site offering a $10 sign up bonus on any qualifying purchase of $25 within 60 days after you make your account! They’ve been operational for a while now and have built up a loyal fan-base. You can also install their “Savings Button” on your browser to get alerted when new deals or coupons are available.
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.
18. Credit Card Rewards
These days, almost every credit card company has some kind of cash back program. It’s important that you do thorough research to determine which company to use before going through with it. Different cash back programs will reward you differently when you shop at specific stores, so pick the one where you shop frequently. Most of these rewards programs do allow you to redeem your points into gift cards and/or cash. Always be responsible when using credit cards.
19. Amazon Affiliate
Amazon Affiliates advertise Amazon products on their websites, blogs and videos and get paid when someone clicks their link(s) and buys the product. Seems simple enough, but this method can be quite difficult to actually start showing results. You’ll need to cultivate a big following of people who trust your opinion on products. For example, you’ll see big Twitch gaming streamers who have their amazon affiliate links on their page that link to the gear they use.
20. Razer Cortex
Razer Cortex is software that pays you in “Razer Silver” when you play games found in their library. You can redeem the silver that you’ve earned for Razer products and select steam game CD keys. Pretty simple, however there is a cap on how much silver you can earn per day, it’s somewhere around the 900 mark.
21. 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
22. Ask for Gift Cards Instead of Regular Gifts
This is the simplest way to get gift cards, just ask your friends and relatives to get you gift cards instead of a normal gift for special occasions / holidays. Most people have a difficult time picking out a gift for someone else, so this will simplify the process for them as well.
