Earn Amazon Rewards with the Chase Visa Amazon Credit Card

If you've ever ordered anything from Amazon you may have been offered a Chase Visa card to bill your order to when you were checking out. I had ordered many things from Amazon and always used my American Express or Debit Card to pay for my purchases thinking that I didn't need another credit card.  Finally last year, while I was doing some Christmas shopping on Amazon I decided to accept the Chase Visa card, since they were also offering a $30 discount on my first order paid for with the new card.  It was one of those hard to refuse deals that I thought was a smart move considering I vowed to pay off the balance in full, just like I would have to do with my Amex bill anyway. Which I did and continue to do whenever I use the card.

With this credit card you will also earn points on every eligible purchase;
  • 3 points for every $1 spent on Amazon.com,
  • 2 points for every $1 spent at gas stations, restaurants, and drug stores
  •  1 point for every other $1 spent.  
  •  It takes 2500 points to cash in for a $25 Amazon reward and for 5000 points you can request $50 cash if you'd prefer.

WARNING: 

Since this blog is about shopping for FREE at Amazon.com I wanted to explain how I use this Amazon Visa card to earn points that I cash in for Amazon rewards.  I am in no way suggesting that you get the card and run up debt that you cannot payback in full every billing period.  Only get the card if you can use it wisely and payback the entire balance every month.  Otherwise, if you don't, then it defeats the purpose of what you are trying to do, which is SHOP FOR FREE!  If you have to pay finance charges then the rewards you would earn from using the card are not really FREE anymore =)   .

Agreed?  Okay.....here's the link to get the card.  Last time I checked they were offering $40 off your first Amazon order charged on this card. So consider using that discount to your advantage but please pay it off in full.

Earn Amazon Rewards by Performing Tasks at Mturk.com

One very interesting way to earn Amazon rewards is by completing tasks or "hits" through a website affiliated with Amazon.com called mturk.com.  Mturk, which is short for Mechanical Turk, lists thousands of tasks that you can do online and earn money or Amazon rewards for each one successfully completed.  Think of it as a "temporary job" site where companies outsource tasks they need completed online. Anyone can jump in and make some extra cash from home with Mturk.  Some tasks requre you to answer a few questions first to see if you qualify to participate but beyond that there are no interviews necessary, no dress code required, no commuting costs, etc. Anyone can do this!

The pay ranges from a penny for simple tasks to several dollars for more complex time consuming tasks.  There are usually a good variety of tasks to choose from.  Each one will explain what to do and the amount of money you will be paid.  You can pick and choose which ones to accept or skip over. Some will be very easy, monotonous and boring, and some will be more interesting and challenging and require more thought and usually a higher pay rate.

You will see the money in your account usually within a few days, after the requestor (employer) has approved your work. You can then use your balance as payment toward your next Amazon purchase!
How Cool is That?

This is definitely a site that could occupy you for hours on end. Take your time in reviewing the "tasks" offered and evaluate which ones are worth your time and effort.  You could literally visit mturk.com several times a day and find something new to do each time.  Good luck hunting for "jobs" on mturk.com.
