Perhaps you already know there are multiple ways to land free Amazon gift cards — but Amazon isn’t alone.
You name a major retailer, and you will probably find at least a couple of ways to score free gift cards for it. You just need to know where to look.
Take Amazon’s brick-and-mortar rival Walmart, for example. Here are several ways you can score free gift cards from Walmart:
1. Use Savings Catcher
This free program is one way the retail giant attempts to prove that its stores have the lowest prices in town.
If you join the program, you can submit your receipts for store purchases to Savings Catcher.
Basically, Savings Catcher compares the prices you paid for eligible items at Walmart stores with the advertised prices in the weekly ads of top retailers in your area, as Walmart describes the process.
If Savings Catcher finds a lower price elsewhere, you get the difference back on a Savings Catcher Rewards eGift Card. This gift card works just like a Walmart gift card in that you can use it to buy things at Walmart stores and Walmart.com.
2. Join Swagbucks
As a Swagbucks member, you’ll be able to accumulate points called “SBs” for completing simple tasks online — tasks that you may already do anyway, such as:
- Shopping online
- Searching the web
- Answering surveys
Then, you can redeem your SBs for free gift cards to various retailers, including Walmart.
3. Use TopCashback
TopCashback is what’s known as a cash-back portal. This basically means that if you do your online shopping via TopCashback’s website, you can earn rebates on purchases from thousands of online retailers.
TopCashback prides itself on paying high cash-back percentages and offering many ways to convert your accumulated rebates to currency. For example, the company will send you cash via direct deposit or PayPal. It also will convert your rebates to a gift card — with Walmart gift cards being one of the options, TopCashback tells Money Talks News.
To start using TopCashback, sign up for an account, which is free.
4. Download Ibotta
Ibotta is an app that enables you to earn cash rebates for purchases from many online retailers as well as many brick-and-mortar stores.
Once you accumulate enough rebates to cash out, you have three options. Ibotta will transfer the cash back to you via PayPal or Venmo or convert it to a gift card. Walmart gift cards are among options, Ibotta tells Money Talks News.
To start using Ibotta, sign up for an account, which is free. Then, download the app, which is also free.
5. Sell your clutter to Walmart’s trade-in program
If you’ve got gadgets lying around, check out Walmart’s trade-in program, called Gadgets to Gift Cards.
You may be able to trade in your devices that are sitting around unused. If this program accepts any of your unwanted devices, you’ll get a Walmart e-gift card, which you can use in stores and online.
The Gadgets to Gift Cards program accepts:
- Gaming consoles
- Video games
- Voice speakers
To find out whether the program would accept any of your devices, and how much you’d get for them, visit the website and click on the type of device you want to trade in.
