How to earn free gift cards in ways you probably never thought of

You’ve probably already heard of survey websites, cashback apps or other ways of earning free gift cards, but there are some ways which you probably don’t know exist. Here are some of these ways that may be entirely new for you.  

Test Drives

Receiving a gift card in exchange for taking a test drive is extremely common and most car companies offer this. But, like referrals, the offers are always changing. So, to find out, check the manufacturer website, and look for a special promotions tab.

Amazon Trade-in

If you have any unused electronic items at home, occupying space, trading them to Amazon is an easy way to earn a gift card and a special offer. If you want, you can then use them towards upgrading your item to a newer model.
Some of the items you can trade in are E-readers, tablets, streaming media players, Bluetooth speakers, cell phones, and gaming. You can also trade in books.

To check if there is an offer for the ítem you no longer use, you can search for it and find out how much it’s worth. If you bought something on Amazon, it will all be easier because Amazon will make the suggestion for you.


Lucktastic gives you the chance to win gift cards simply by playing games on their website that mimics scratch cards. There’s no guarantee but since the site is full of adverts, payments are high, and it’s common to win.
Payments go from $1 right up to thousands of dollars. You can use the gift cards for sites like Amazon, Sephora, and Walmart.


Like Lucktastic, Mistplay gamifies the process of earning points for gift cards, but it features full games rather than quick scratch card exercises.

The best thing about the app is that you won’t have to play games you’ve never heard of and can play popular games you already love, like Clash Royale. There’s even a chance of earning in-game bonuses of up to $20.

Instagram Giveaways

Something else that might not have occurred to you is searching for gift card giveaways on Instagram. How do you do this? The secret is to use the right hashtags. There’s no guarantee you’ll win, but if you try enough times, you’ll have more possibilities.

Some of the most popular hashtags include:
•    #giveaway
•    #freebie
•    #freebiefriday

As it is possible to follow hashtags, you can just wait for the best offers to appear. You may have to tag a couple of friends in a post or follow an account, but that doesn’t really take much effort to do.
