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. Sell your clutter to Walmart’s trade-in program

If you’ve got electronics lying around, check out Walmart’s trade-in program, called Gadgets to Gift Cards.

You may be able to trade in your old devices for a Walmart e-gift card, as we detail in “9 Retailers That Will Pay You for Your Unwanted Stuff.”

2. Join Swagbucks

Swagbucks is a free rewards program — just sign up for an account. 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.

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. Download Shopkick

Shopkick is a free app that rewards you — with points called “kicks” — for doing small tasks while shopping, such as scanning product bar codes in stores. You can redeem kicks for free gift cards to various retailers, including Walmart.

Download the Shopkick app to get started.

6. Buy gift cards from Raise

Raise is a gift card marketplace that sells secondhand gift cards for less than their face value, as well as new gift cards at face value.

If you buy new gift cards through Raise, you will earn rewards called “Raise Cash.” And you can put your Raise Cash toward future purchases of gift cards from Raise — including Walmart gift cards — effectively getting gift cards for free.
