Why not turn your “trash” into treasure? Send tablets, e-readers, smart home devices, streaming media players and more to the Amazon Trade-In program. You’ll get Amazon gift cards in return, as we detail in “10 Stores That Will Pay You for Your Clutter.”

It’s a great way to clear out space in your home.

2. Swagbucks

Shop online, fill out surveys, watch videos — these are all things you can do through Swagbucks 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 $1 Amazon gift card, for which you’ll need 110 SBs, to a $500 Amazon gift card, for which you’ll need 50,000 SBs.

3. Amazon credit card

To be clear, we are not suggesting that you open a new credit card just to get a free Amazon gift card. Depending on your current financial situation, it might not be a wise money move for you. And no matter your situation, opening a new credit card can cause your credit score to dip temporarily.

But if you happen to be in the market for a new rewards credit card and you prize free Amazon gift cards, you might want to consider the Amazon Rewards Visa Card. Get approved for one, and you’ll get a free $150 Amazon gift card.

If an Amazon credit card isn’t the right fit for you, you can check out other options by using Money Talks News’ free credit card comparison tool.

4. Raise
