Using Points Programs to Earn Freebies

Do you use points programs to earn freebies? I do! With most points programs, it takes just a few clicks and very little time, so it's well worth the rewards you earn. Last year, I used three points programs to get lots of great stuff for FREE:

.
I've shared before how I earn FREE gifts and rewards through the Disney Movie Rewards program. It's FREE to join, and you can add points by typing in codes from your Disney DVDs or from those shared online. Here's a 5-point code for you to add to your account today: 328WEDKFAHF Last year, I received a baseball cap, Rapunzel jewelry and a CD to give as gifts, plus two FREE movie tickets to take my kids out to the theater!

MyPoints.comI love sharing about MyPoints because it's how I earn FREE gas cards! I only do the BonusMail so it takes just seconds a couple of days a week. I took my readers' questions and followed up with another tutorial to help you out. Since we're on a no-spend, debt payoff system right now, I redeemed points last month to get a $50 Red Robin Gift Card for my husband's birthday. That's his favorite restaurant, and we were able to celebrate there without it hurting our budget or progress.

SwagbucksOver the past 3 years, I've earned thousands of dollars in Amazon Gift Cards through Swagbucks–by searching on their search engine, using their toolbar, and referring friends. Read my top 6 ways I earn Swagbucks. They have LOTS of other gift cards and rewards, but I stick to the best ratio–450 Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon GC. I use my Amazon cards to buy gluten-free groceries, maple syrup, diapers, and other household items along with birthday gifts and books.

Oh I love points programs! In addition to these I use Daily Feats (and get Safeway gift cards), Memolink, WeReward (an app for your phone), among others. I also review points programs, survey companies, and mystery shopping companies on my blog at http://earningmytwocents.blogspot.com.

Points companies are, like you mentioned, a great way to get gift cards for little indulgences or for necessities. My husband and I are also on a super tight budget so gift cards for gas and groceries, or just cold hard cash, are the rewards I like the best. Then when I get that $25 gas card, I transfer $25 out of our gas budget and put it towards paying down debt.

last time i coulnd't find those links on my points but this time i went in and was able to find them. i go the bonus email and it had a click through link today. i'm hopeful this will work this time around. i also read on their facebook site that their bonus email has had a reduced number of 5 point click thrus so i wonder if that was also the problem the first time around.

as for dailyfeats, i haven't been able to get my safeway gift cards for the past two months because they ran out. :(
