Ok, so this is a bit different than what I normally post. But it is related to books in a way, so bear with me while I detail everything.
How do you get free books, you may be asking. Well, there's this website that exists called PrizeRebel. You may have heard of it, or you may have heard of similar sites, like Swagbucks or InstaGC. However, PrizeRebel is the best of the bunch, at least in my opinion.
You see, I've been a member of PrizeRebel since 2009. In August, I believe, I will be celebrating 8 years with the website. Yes, I've been loyal to them for a very long time. As I said above, they are the best website around for earning points you can exchange for other, better things. And let me tell you, I've gotten many awesome things over the years.
PrizeRebel has changed a lot in the 8 years I've been with them, but it's still my favorite place to do surveys and offers. They also have the best options for prizes. Gift cards, Paypal, Books, Games/Toys, Video Games, etc. You can even custom order something from a website and use your points to pay for it. Pretty awesome, right?
So how does PrizeRebel work? Basically, once you create an account with them, you can start doing offers and surveys to earn yourself some points. You start out as a Bronze level member, which means if you refer another person, you receive 20% from their earnings on the site. If they earn 100 points, you'd receive an extra 20 points. The only downfall of being a bronze member is your prizes are not automatically processed. There will be a small waiting period before you receive it, usually 3-5 days. Once you reach 1000 points, you rank up to Silver and no longer have to wait for prizes to be processed. The highest rank you can be, which is what I am, is Diamond. Perks of being a diamond member include 30% on all referral earnings, automatic prize processing, a 3% monthly bonus on all points earned, and a 3% discount on prizes. Definitely worth it!
How do you earn points? Easy! You can do offers, surveys, tasks, watch videos, etc. I find surveys the easiest and fastest way to get points. Especially the Your Surveys section, which credits 85 points per every survey completed. And you have no limit as to how many you can do a day (unless they run out of surveys for you, which rarely happens, at least for me). So if you get 5 surveys to credit in a day, at 85 points apiece, that's 425 points! That's worth two $2 Amazon gift cards. Huzzah! Basically, every 100 points is $1, so once you hit 1000 points, that's $10.
As you can see in the pictures below, from March to December 2016, I earned quite a bit towards either Amazon or Paypal. That buys a lot of books, let me tell you! lol
Most of my earnings last year came from surveys, but some came from offers and the occasional promo code listed on PrizeRebel's Facebook page. Please note that the promo codes in the picture below no longer work, so that's why I didn't blur them out.
Promo codes are posted on the Facebook page, as I stated above, so following them on Facebook is definitely a plus. It's also a good idea to follow them on Facebook if you need some assistance with something. They usually are pretty good about responding to questions/help requests on their page. Occasionally you'll need to submit a ticket via their site, but Facebook is a good place to at least start when you need help. PrizeRebel also occasionally runs contests on their Facebook page where you can win a gift card or some other prize. So definitely follow them over there.
I won one of the Facebook contests back in May. Received a $25 Fandango gift card to go see a movie. Definitely a great prize, 'cause I love movies almost as much as I love books. :P
Overall, PrizeRebel is a great place to earn rewards. If you're a bookaholic and have an addiction to Amazon like I do, then you definitely need to sign up today and start earning points. Trade 'em in for Amazon gift cards and buy all the books!
Or, you know, you can always save up to buy something amazing that you really want. The possibilities are endless! In fact, I saved up to buy a shirt back in 2011 or 2012 (I forget when). It was a must-have item for me back then. haha
Yes, it's an Adventure Time/Avengers crossover. I'm such a nerd. But that's beside the point. I was able to get this shirt basically for free after earning enough points on PrizeRebel to custom order it. Free is always good. *nods*
Anyway, the point of this post is PrizeRebel is awesome, I've been with them almost 8 years, and I wanted everyone else to know how great a site it is. Plus, who doesn't want to earn free stuff? If you're interested in signing up, you can go HERE and start an account today. Good luck!
