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

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.

And for more ways to score Amazon freebies, also check out “10 Things That Really Are Free on Amazon.”

1. Amazon Trade-In

Why not turn your “trash” into treasure? Send books, video games, tablets, e-readers, smart home devices and more to the Amazon Trade-In program. You’ll get Amazon gift cards in return, as we detail in “9 Companies That Sell Your Stuff For You.”

It’s also a great way to clear out the clutter.

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 $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.

3. Amazon credit cards

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 Cards. Get approved for one and you’ll get a free $100 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

Raise is an online marketplace where you can buy new (full-priced) or used (discounted) gift cards and also sell your own unwanted gift cards.

If you buy new gift cards through Raise, you will earn rewards called “Raise Cash.” And you can redeem your Raise Cash when buying gift cards — including Amazon gift cards — in the future.

5. Shopkick

Shopkick is a free app that enables you to earn rewards points called “kicks” for doing tasks while shopping in stores or online — such as walking into a store, scanning a product bar code or buying something online.

You can redeem kicks for gifts cards, including Amazon gift cards.

6. MyPoints

One of the oldest rewards sites, MyPoints offers opportunities to earn points in a fashion similar to that of Swagbucks. And you can redeem points for free gift cards. The Amazon gift card options range from a $1 card, for which you’ll need 250 points, to a $100 card, for which you’ll need 15,500 points.

You also can get a $10 Amazon gift card just for signing up.

7. InstaGC

If you really want to earn gift cards fast, try doing an internet search, shopping online, taking surveys or watching videos to rack up points at InstaGC. You can redeem points for gift cards that this site says you will receive instantly.

The Amazon gift card options start at just $1 and go up to $100, with a custom amount also an option. You only need to earn 100 points before you can start redeeming them for Amazon gift cards.

8. SurveyMonkey
