Take surveys, earn gift cards

Earn free gift cards to Amazon and other retailers for taking 2 -20 minutes to complete a survey in your spare time. Open up the app and answer questions while you’re commuting on the bus, waiting for dinner to cook, or sitting at the DMV. Each survey you take gives you a certain amount of points. After you reach your point goal, cash them in for Amazon gift cards.

Mechanical Turk

Amazon’s Mechanical Turk is a crowdsourcing platform where you can sign up and get paid for performing tasks such as writing product descriptions, verifying data, and answering simple questions. Once your task has been approved, you can receive your payment via an Amazon gift card.

How to get started on Amazon Mechanical Turk

Visit the Mechanical Turk worker website and click on the “Get Started with Amazon Mechanical Turk” button. You will be taken to a page with two options: Create tasks or Make money. Click on “Create a Work Account”. From here you will be redirected to Amazon's sign-in page. Log into your Amazon account. Once you’re signed in, you will need to fill out some required information but after that, you can access the dashboard which provides a list of tasks to choose from, the amount you will be paid, your earnings, and approval rating.

Redeem Credit Card points

If you frequently use that handy piece of plastic when shopping online, in-store, or when dining out, make sure you’re getting something in return. Many credit card companies such as Discover and American Express offer reward points every time you use their credit card. Once you earn a certain amount of points, you can redeem them for gift cards (including Amazon). Check with your credit card carrier to learn about the perks.
