Free Gift Cards

Awhile back I wrote about how to earn free money and gifts by taking online surveys. This still works for me and I looove getting paid to answer a few surveys here and there. It's really an easy way to make just a little bit of extra money.

But I wanted to share with you another program that I have belonged to for over 4 years now and have earned close to $500 in free gift cards! Join MyPoints and you can do the same!

I have been soooo in love with MyPoints.com because it rewards me with points that I can turn in for gift cards to restaurants and stores of my choice. I usually pick Target or Chilis, but you can select from a big list of retailers.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, seriously it's not. When you sign up with them, they will start sending you emails with advertisements in them. Normally this would suck, BUT not when you get rewarded for it!!! All you have to do is look at the email, click a link, then get points! It's really that easy. They will offer you 5 points per email that you click on.

Another way to earn points with them is to take a survey when they send those in an email to you. The surveys are usually very short and painless and you will be rewarded up to 65 points for your time. I usually get about 1 survey per day. For the other advertisement emails, I get about 5-10 per day.

And lastly there's one more way to earn loads of points with MyPoints.com. This is by being rewarded for online purchases. If you are going to do any online shopping, you can check out their enormous list of participating retailers and see if the online store you want to shop at is on there. If you click through to the store from their link, you will be rewarded with points per dollar spent. This usually ranges from 2-10 points per dollar.

The points per dollar program is an easy way to build up points quickly. That being said, I wouldn't go on and make a bunch of purchases just to get the points. That would be a waste. But, if you are going to make an online purchase anyway, why not get rewarded for it? Oh and the program is completely free to join, so what's stopping you?
