Many companies offer Amazon Gift Cards in exchange for doing small tasks. Most of the time, these tasks get rewarded with points, which you can swap later on with gift cards.
A lot of these tasks are things that you already do, like shopping online and filling out survey forms. If you have a lot of time in your hands, what better way to spend them than to earn these points, right?
Today, I’ll show you 19 of the easiest and the best ways to earn Amazon points up to $100. An important thing to know is that you cannot earn $100 in completing only one activity—you have to accumulate these points.
SwagBucks is one of the oldest companies offering points for tasks. After signing up, you can start earning points, called SB points, by watching videos, shopping online, searching the web, or answering surveys. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can swap it with gift cards in Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Starbucks. You can also swap it for cash and transfer the money to your PayPal account.
Here are some of the things you can do to earn SB points in exchange for Amazon Gift cards:
- Take surveys
- Refer friends to a promotion
- Use a default search engine
- Shop on online marketplaces like eBay, Kohl’s, Target, Best Buy, and others to earn cashback
- Watch videos
- Play games
The cashback percentages vary. eBay offers 1% while The Home Depot offers 4%. The highest cashback offer is 5% from Hotels.Com. You can earn up to four SB points for every dollar you spend.
For 500 SB points, you can swap it for an Amazon gift card worth $5. Answering surveys can get you between 5 and 200 SB points.
SwagBucks has a partnership with over 1,500 retailers. For every dollar you spend, you get a certain percentage in return. As a SwagBucks member, you can also get access to exclusive deals from their partners.
GrabPoints works just like Swagbucks. You need to register as a member before you can start earning points. With GrabPoint, advertisers pay to get members like you to engage. If you do, you earn points, and you can swap these points for an Amazon gift card.
Here are some of the things you can do to earn points:
- Watch videos
- Complete vendor offers
- Download apps
- Answer surveys
Videos are mostly commercials, and vendor offers mean that you need to try the products and services of the merchant. Most of these are free trials, as it does not make sense for the merchants to ask you for money in exchange for a few points.
Some, however, require a small fee. Once your trial period is over, what you paid will be credited to your subscription.
Apart from Amazon gift cards, you can also swap the points for other goods. Examples of these are:
- Google Play
There are many more rewards that you can choose from, but Amazon is the most flexible because you can use it to buy almost anything from Amazon.
