Who doesn’t love Amazon? Not only can you find just about anything on the site, but you can also can find it at a great price.

In the past, a big hang-up about Amazon was having to wait several days for the goods to arrive on your doorstep. But with Amazon Prime, you can order just about any product and have it delivered within just a couple of days, among seemingly countless other Prime perks.

If you’re a fan of Amazon, you’ll probably love scoring free Amazon gift cards. And there are many ways to get them online. Following are some of our faves.

1. Amazon Trade-In

Why not turn your “trash” into treasure? Send books, video games, DVDs, electronics and more to the Amazon Trade-In program. You’ll get Amazon gift cards in return.

It’s also a great way to clear out the clutter. As we detail in “11 Ways to Turn Clutter Into Cash,” Amazon makes the selling process easy and secure.

2. Swagbucks

Do an internet search, shop online, fill out surveys, watch videos — these are all things you can do at Swagbucks.com to earn points. Earn enough points, known as “SBs,” and you can redeem them for free gift cards, including Amazon gift cards.

Your options currently range from a $3 Amazon gift card, for which you’ll need 300 SBs, to a $500 Amazon gift card, for which you’ll need 50,000 SBs. There’s also a gift card for a three-month subscription to Audible, the audiobook company owned by Amazon. You’ll need 4,500 SBs for that.
