I think something that humans and dogs have in common, is that we both love free things. Free belly rubs, free treats, and free gift cards.
Why would a dog love free gifts cards? Well, my Mom could buy me a new toy or extra snacks. It also makes her smile when a gift card shows up in the mail, and I love seeing her smile.
With the help of my humans, I have put together a list of ways that you can get free gift cards or some will let you just get cash.

We’ve already made sure that they’re all legit, so you don’t have to worry about being scammed.
1. Get Paid in Gift Cards Just For Sharing Your Opinion
Taking surveys online isn’t going to make you a millionaire, but if you’re relaxing on the couch and watching dog videos or your favorite show, then why not answer some easy questions to make a few extra dollars.
Survey Junkie is an online community of over 10 million members that help to influence big brands by sharing their opinions. You can take surveys on any device and earn points that can be redeemed for cash via PayPal or gift cards.
2. Get Free Gift Cards for Watching Videos
Can you imagine getting paid to watch videos? It sounds too good to be true, but InboxDollars has paid out over $80 million in cash rewards.
You can earn money by watching videos, like movie trailers or short snippets of a new product feature. Big brands want consumers to watch their new content, and they’re willing to pay for it.
3. A Legit Way to Get Cash
American Consumer Opinion has paid out more than $30 million to 7 million members. Surveys take on average 10 minutes to complete. You can cash out with PayPal when you have earned 1,000 points or more (worth $10).
If you are interested in taking surveys while you’re vegging out in the evening, then it’s a good idea to sign up for multiple survey websites. This gives you the chance to take as many surveys as you want. Each company might only have a limited number of surveys for you to take each month.
4. See If You Can Get Free Money From This Company
Pinecone Research is owned by the Nielsen Company, and they have a rating of A+ with the BBB. Each survey should take only a few minutes and is worth 300 points ($3).
They also give you the opportunity to test new products and you can earn between $3 and $5 for filling out a short report about the product. Some products you will be able to keep after completing the study.
Pinecone Research is an elite survey site, so not everyone is accepted. You can apply here to see if you qualify.
5. Get Paid While You Sit on the Couch
Survey Voices aggregates the best paying survey opportunities so that you don’t waste your time with low paying or scammy offers. As with any legit survey company, it is free to join and they will give you a questionnaire to find out basic information.
It is important to answer these questions accurately so that they can connect you with the right paid surveys to take. The sites that they link to will pay you directly for completing surveys.
6. Earn up to $50 Per Completed Survey
Panda Research has paid out over $2.2 million since they started in 2005. They pay members with earnings of at least $50 on the 1st and 15th of each month via PayPal.
You can also earn up to $25 per time you cash out from reading paid emails. Surveys take an average of 10-15 minutes to complete.
7. Get Cash Back on Purchases You Already Make
With the Drop App, you can earn points automatically for purchases that you make with a debit or credit card. There are no coupons to clip or receipts to scan.
Over 4 million members love using Drop. It works by linking your credit and/or debit card(s) to the secure app. Then, you earn points for shopping, playing games, or taking surveys. You can redeem points for gift cards to your favorite stores.
