Free Amazon Gift Certificates?

I was wondering what websites there are that give away free gift certificates to Amazon.com. Either ones where you can just win them for participating, or ones where you collect points and then can exchange those points for the gift certificates. I am currently on Winzy, and have won a handful of $5 Amazon gift certificates from that site. I am also on Swagbucks and I've earned enough points to get a few $5 Amazon gift cards. I am also on Promosquad and I'm just a few points away from getting a $10 Amazon gift card. I'm also on Blingo, Big Devil, and Lucky Search but I haven't won anything on any of those sites yet. What sites are you on that you can get Amazon gift cards on? Have you won any or earned enough points to get any yet? How do the sites work? What do you have to do in order to win?

I get most of my amazon gift certificates from testspin. It's a survey site. Mysurvey has an option for amazon gift certificates, I think (it used to, but I always just turn my points there in for a check). I don't have referal links, they just do email referals. I've been on promosquad for YEARS and I'm just gonna warn you: the gift cards go fast and they don't say they are out of stock until you have enough points to buy it, so there is a good chance that they are out of stock. You literally have to get those like within hours of a restock. I have quite a few points on there, so I will go check and see if they are in stock. Ok I just checked for you and the $10 amazon gift certificate is Out Of Stock. Sorry! Ugh I hate that they don't stock things very well and they don't tell you ahead of time that they are out of them. So you save your points up forever and then the big prizes are always out of stock =(

I finally earned enough points for an Amazon gift card on Promosquad so I requested one. I got the confirmation e-mail and everything and the points were deducted from my account. Would I know right away if they were out of stock? Or would they let me get this far and send me the confirmation and then later tell me they are out of stock?

No, if they were out of stock, you would have known right away, before you cashed out. That's cool that they finally did a restock, it had been months since the last one I know of...I need to go check and see if they have any left =) I have always gotten my prizes from them in a timely manner, but others have not. Oh and just know that when I ordered a $30 amazon card from them it came via snail mail not email! I'd hope that by now they would have changed to sending them out by email so they'd come quicker...I guess we'll all have to wait and see. Oh man! the $10 cards are out of stock again...but the $5 ones aren't, so atleast I can get one (I wish there wasn't a limit of one per prize per person...but seeing as how fast things go out of stock, it's probably best this way).

Hi trickiwoo! Have you tried mypoints, and gather? You can earn points for reading emails, shopping, and signing up at websites, with mypoints. Gather is similiar to mylot, except you earn points good toward gift cards and gift certificates.
