Amazon gift cards are kind of great.
You can choose to treat yourself to a new gadget or a snuggly sweater, or you can stock up on toilet paper and toothpaste.
Either way, you can’t lose.
Here’s a list of simple ways to get up to $30 in Amazon gift cards this week.
1. Start Taking Pictures of Your Receipt for a $20 Gift Card
We know it sounds strange, but Ibotta will pay you cash for taking pictures of your grocery store receipts.
Here’s how it works:
Before heading to the store, search for items on your shopping list within the Ibotta app. When you get home, snap a photo of your receipt and scan the items’ barcodes.
Bam. Cash back.
Ibotta is free to download. Plus, you’ll get a $20 sign-up bonus after redeeming your first 10 offers within 14 days.
Some cash-back opportunities we’ve seen include:
- 25 cents back for any item.
- 25 cents back on strawberries.
- 50 cents back on frozen fruit snacks.
- $1 back on a box of tea.
- $5 back on a case of Shiner Bock beer.
Once you hit $20, you can cash out in the form of an Amazon gift card or cash.
2. Fill Out Five Surveys for a Simple $5 Amazon Gift Card
It’s no secret that survey sites are a great place to snag some free money and gift cards, thanks to their awesome sign-up bonuses. MyPoints is no exception.
When you sign up for the survey site and complete your first five surveys, you’ll pocket a $5 bonus. Cash that bonus out for an Amazon gift card. Simple!
Then keep filling out surveys and taking polls to continue to earn some simple money.
3. Get a $5 Amazon Gift Card For Playing Games like Words With Friends and Rise of Kingdoms
Get paid to play games on your phone? Yeah, right. We’ve all heard that before.
Here’s what that usually means: Logging dozens of hours on games you’ve never heard of, just for a few cents.
But a free Android app called Mistplay actually pays you for playing popular games like Words With Friends 2, Rise of Kingdoms, Yahtzee, Clash Royale, Star Wars and more.
As you play, Mistplay rewards you in points, which you can exchange for gift cards for brands like Visa, Amazon and more.
You’ll even get bonus points when you sign up and enter the code penny50.
The more you play, the more you’ll earn. Plus, Mistplay offers some bigger in-game rewards — up to $20.
It takes just a few minutes to sign up and start getting paid to play games.
Now, what are you doing still reading this? You’ve got $30 worth of Amazon gift cards burning a hole in your digital pocket!
