Besides cash rewards, there are many online paid surveys that pay gift cards. Many survey companies pay members gift cards including amazon, iTunes and other popular store/restaurant gift cards (or e-vouchers/certificates) for completing online surveys. The gifts cards can be used online or in stores such as Walmart, Target, Macy’s and Home Depot etc. I personally love survey gift cards payment, it is quick and easy to use!

I will be adding new survey panels to this list along the way and If you like shopping at amazon like me, make sure to sign up with all the them. I have cashed out amazon gift cards from some of those survey sites many times because shop at amazon.com very often.
Other store gift cards I have earned from surveys are walmart, target, kmart, oldnavy gift cards (those are the ones I can remember and I am sure there are others) and have used them either online or at the stores.
Why sometimes I prefer amazon gift cards over cash reward?
Even though cash is my number one choice of survey payment, sometimes I do prefer amazon or store gift cards over cash for the following reasons or advantages:
- Usually it is faster to receive amazon gift card code compare to Paypal and check;
- For some survey panels, less points is needed to redeem amazon gift cards (meaning lower minimum cash out threshold), so you can cash out faster. You can check out my individual survey panel reviews where I share detailed cash out option information.
- Amazon gift certificates never expire once added to your account, and I always immediately deposit amazon gift card into my account once I receive it.
- I know some people (especially kids or teens) may not have a bank or Paypal accounts, so amazon and store gift card is a nice alternative reward option.
Tips on Surveys that Pay Gift Cards:
#1: Always check expiration date on any gift cards you receive just in case. I remember one of my site visitors told his unfortunate story about an expired visa prepaid card he earned for a online focus group he attended.
#2: Check your gift cards balance and make sure it is valid as soon as possible. On the back of the gift cards, usually there is a website address or telephone number you can call to confirm your card balance. For amazon gift cards, I always load the gift card codes into my amazon account immediately or shortly after receiving them, this way if there is any problems I will discover it right away, and once gift cards loaded into your amazon account, it never expires!
#3: Spend your gift cards as soon as you can. Using your card soon will enable you to make sure that there is no problem with them or discover the problem early on.
#4: If there is any problems with your gift cards, contact the survey company immediately. This is important because if you find problem and act quickly, it’s more likely problem get resolved.
Gift cards is a very popular survey reward option and has its advantages over cash like lower redeem threshold. I know many people prefer survey sites that pay cash, but I really think you should join the gift card paying survey panels I listed above, so you won’t miss any excellent survey opportunities!
