Gift cards are a valuable thing, because it is essentially just as good as cash. You can use it to get stuff you need, you can use it as a gift or you can use it to buy gifts. With that said, people are always trying to find ways to earn free gift cards online. But are there legitimate ways to get free gift cards? The answer is yes.

One popular way is to do it through Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a site that allows you to earn "bucks" for doing things like searching the Internet, taking polls, using coupons, and taking surveys. There are a lot of ways to earn points (which can then be used to redeem gift cards), which is a way that the site can appeal to everyone. 

Another similar site is Mypoints, where you can earn points for things like reading emails and taking polls. Then you can exchange the points for gift cards. It is a little bit slower than Swagbucks in terms of earning enough points, but it is still a very easy way to get free gift cards.

Another way is through rebates. If you buy something where you get back a rebate, make sure to actually cash the rebate in! A lot of times, people will just forget and it will make the rebate go to waste, depriving you of the money that you should have had. Often, the rebates will be given to you in the form of gift cards or cash debit cards. This is something to make sure to be on top of, because otherwise you are just giving away what should be free and easy money and gift cards.

A lot of people take online surveys, though it can be hit or miss, because they are not always easy to qualify for. However, if you are able to do these, you can likely accumulate gift cards more quickly, because companies are always looking for honest feedback from potential customers as ways to improve their products. If you have the patience and inclination to take surveys, you can be handsomely rewarded.

There are definitely legitimate ways to get free gift cards online, you just have to know where to look for them. If you are persistent and patient, you can get tons of free stuff through gift cards, and it won't cost you a penny!
