By joining and installing the Swagbucks extension, I earn multiple points each day.  There are so many ways to earn points!  The extension offers codes to enter and earn points.  Many things you do everyday can get more points.  Online searches, online shopping, playing games, taking surveys, and watching videos will earn points fast!  These points are redeemed with the gift cards that you choose.  My favorites are the Amazon gift cards, which can be uploaded right into my Amazon account.


Ibotta is great if you shop…and who doesn’t?   Before you shop, check out all the current products that will earn you points.  Then, just purchase the products and upload the receipts.  The app is easy to use.  The more you shop, the more you will earn.


You can earn gift cards in-store and online with ShopKick.  Just download the app and do a variety of tasks to earn points fast!  In-store: Just walking in a store, scanning certain products, and making purchases will earn points.  Online: Shop through the app and the points will add up.


Honey is a free browser extension that saves you money every time you shop!  It’s also available in the app store as Honey Smart Shopping Assistant.  It then automatically offers coupon codes to thousands of shopping sites to help you get the lowest price on your purchase!

My Points

This rewarder offers tons of ways to earn points that can be redeemed for gift cards.  Some of the ways to earn are through shopping: online or in store.  I love that you can get cash back for buying gift cards and you can earn points for printing grocery coupons.  Take surveys, watch videos, play games and much more in order to earn points. 

What are your favorite ways to earn gift cards?  I didn’t recommend survey sites, because I’ve been very frustrated with them.  Many times I’ve gotten far into a survey and then was told that I didn’t qualify.  I seems to be a huge waste of time for me, even though many claim to make money on surveys.
