Many advertisements and offers promise free gift cards. Your email in-box is probably full of messages promising you a gift card to a major retail store. While most of these are empty promises, there are steps you can take to get free gift cards from companies, or at least earn them while performing tasks you do every day.

Instructions

  • 1 Earn gift cards for the credit and debit card purchases you currently make.

    Enroll in rewards programs linked to your credit and debit cards. You can earn points redeemable for retail gift cards when making qualifying purchases. Wells Fargo debit cards, for example, offer up to 16 bonus points per dollar spent. The Visa Extras program, offered with select Visa debit or credit cards, allows you to earn points for most purchases.

  • 2 Get thanked for your shopping loyalty with points redeemable for gift cards.

    Join shopping clubs rewarding customer loyalty with gift cards. Shop online through websites like Ebates and MyPoints to earn award points for your purchases. Accumulate and redeem these points for gift cards.

  • 3. Search online with search engines that reward you. Get an entry to win points toward a gift card with every search you make on search engine iRazoo; Swagbucks also rewards web surfers.

  • 4 Email newsletters notify you of free gift card promotions at your favorite stores.

    Add your name to store mailing lists. You won’t get gift cards just for signing up to receive emails, but you will get advance notice of specials. Often these specials include free gift card offers for purchasing specific products or reaching minimum purchase amounts.

  • 5. Participate in buzz marketing. Tell your friends, co-workers and even strangers about new products. Participating in viral marketing groups can get you free product samples, exclusive discounts and other rewards for providing input, including currency points redeemable for gift cards.

  • 6 Winning a gift card in an online sweepstakes or instant win game is purely a matter of chance.

    Enter online contests with gift card prizes. Online sweepstakes for names like Dunkin' Donuts, Dell, Wendy's, The Gap and Colgate are administered through ePrize. You can find other contests at sweepstakes forums and message boards.

Tips & Warnings

  • Most random emails promising high-value gift cards are scams. So are email pitches that offer free gift cards if you "fan" a business on Faceboook.

  • Never give out personal data, such as your account number, password or other personally identifying information, in response to an email request.
