If you’ve been around Frugal Finds During Naptime long, you know that I LOVE Amazon! In fact, I have an entire section dedicated just to Amazon. One thing I’ve learned how to do is earn FREE Amazon Gift Cards! Earning the gift cards on top of the awesome Amazon Deals posted each day makes for a lot of FREE items! Read more for my tried and true method to earning $120 Amazon Gift Cards a year in less than five minutes per day; this really is one of the quick ways to make money, of which there are more than most realise.

If you love shopping online at Amazon, you will love how easy it is to earn FREE Amazon Gift Cards in less than five minutes per day!

Swagbucks is my absolute favorite online and mobile survey rewards site! Each “Swagbuck” is equivalent to around $0.01. Once you get 300 Swagbucks, you can redeem it for a $3.00 gift card. If you wait until you have 2,200 Swagbucks, you can redeem it for a $25.00 gift card! You can earn Swagbucks for things you already do online like searching the web, watching videos, and even printing coupons! Of course, you can earn more if you take surveys, but you can still benefit from Swagbucks even if you don’t take a survey at all! I don’t ever sit down and take a survey and I earn 1,000 Swagbucks a month ($10.00). Here’s how you can do that too:

1. Sign up for Swagbucks.

If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks, sign up here. Once you earn 300 Swagbucks, you will earn a $3.00 bonus.

2. Complete your profile.

After you sign up for Swagbucks, go through and complete your profile. You can receive up to 32 Swagbucks just by answering questions about yourself.

Bonus Tip: Make sure you’ve entered your birthday on your profile. You receive 55 Swagbucks on your birthday each year.

3. Answer the Daily Poll.

Every day, Swagbucks has a daily poll. It’s usually a random question. When you answer it, you earn 1 Swagbuck.

4. Download the Swagbucks App.

When you download the Swagbucks mobile app, be sure to opt into “push notifications”. You will receive a notification when there is a new Swagcode to enter. Usually these Swagcodes are time sensitive and range anywhere from three Swagbucks to as much as five! You just have to enter the code and your account is credited.

5. Watch Swagbucks Videos when you’re on your computer.

After you answer the daily poll, click to watch videos. Normally, you can choose to watch “playlists” of videos. Have them playing in another window while you are working. Every few minutes, check back to click a new “playlist”. It’s simple to do and it earns you additional money!

6. Download the Swagbucks TV app.

Before you go to bed at night, make sure your tablet is connected to your home’s WiFi internet, and that your volume for videos on your tablet is turned off. Then open up the Swagbucks TV app, and press play on one of the ads. After this, I turn my tablet upside down, and Swagucks TV plays while I’m asleep. It costs me nothing to run the Swagbucks TV app with it connected to my WiFi, and my phone is charging while it’s running. In other words, I get paid in Swagbucks for sleeping!

Note: I can no longer find the Swagbucks TV app on my smartphone; however, it’s on my tablet and I can still earn that way. Every once in a while, the videos will stop and ask you to enter in your birthday to make sure you didn’t just leave it playing.

7. Follow Swagbucks on Social Media.

When you “like” Swagbucks on Facebook or “follow” Swagbucks on Twitter, you will see additional Swagcodes they post that you can enter. When you see a Swagcode pop up, be sure to type it in while it’s still valid to earn the points.

8. Reach your Daily Goal.

Every day, there is a new daily goal to meet. Once you reach it, you earn bonus Swagbucks. When you reach your goal for a certain number of days in a row, you get an even bigger bonus! These bonuses are usually awarded at one time in the next month.

By doing these things each day, you will be on your way to earning an extra $120 in Amazon Gift Cards. Just think of how many Christmas Gifts you can purchase with that!
