Are Amazon Gift Code Generators a Scam?

While it might sound great to earn free Amazon gift cards through code generators, you may be worried about being scammed. So, are gift code generators worth it? The short answer is no; don’t waste your time. It will most likely be more trouble than it’s worth and trying to get these gift codes could cause you to get hacked.

There are sites that offer free gift codes in exchange for answering surveys. Sounds good, right? A little bit of your time is certainly worth it in order to earn a free Amazon card. But let’s look a little deeper.

Most gift card code generators are developed by hackers. That should be a red flag right there. They get you to do some task, like answer survey questions, in order to receive a free gift card, usually for just a few dollars. All the while they’re gathering your information. The site may look legitimate, but it’s most likely a fake site.

There are no shortcuts or code generating sites that will give you free codes that actually work. They are all a scam. The sites, most of them fake, will make you jump through several hoops like a series of surveys and questionnaires. While you’re taking the surveys, and providing your email and personal information, the hackers are stealing that information in exchange for providing you with a fake gift code. Do not trust any site that offers free gift code generators, for Amazon or any other sites.

But just because the free gift code generator sites don’t work, that doesn’t mean you can’t get free gift cards through other means. Here are a few options you might like:

  1. Download an opinion rewards app and earn a free gift card. TokenFire is an advertising platform that allows you to earn rewards. You can earn “tokens” for simple tasks like watching videos or playing games. You can then exchange your tokens for gift cards. How you earn tokens, the number of tokens you can earn, and how fast you receive your tokens varies based on different tasks. Your tokens can be redeemed for Amazon gift cards as well as gift cards to other platforms like iTunes and Google Play.
  2. If you use Chrome for your browser, download the Honey App. Every time you shop online, Honey will help save you money. At checkout, Honey will search for valid promo and coupon codes to help you get discounts and free shipping. The discounts offered will vary by site and the promos available at the time you shop. What makes it even better is that even if Honey can’t find you a discount, you will still earn reward points called Honey Gold. Your Honey Gold points can be redeemed for free gift cards including Amazon cards. By doing what you are already doing, shopping online, you can earn discounts and free gift cards.
  3. If you use Verizon for your internet and/or cable service, check your reward points on your account. Verizon, as well as other service providers, offer rewards for things like paying your bill on time, referring new clients, and watching a pay-per-view movie. These reward points can be redeemed for gift cards, including Amazon.

All in all, Amazon gift code generators are a scam so avoid them at all costs. Use other methods to earn free gift cards and avoid being hacked.
