FREE Gift Cards for Trial Offers!

Hip2Save may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you via trusted partners and affiliate links in this post. Prices and availability are accurate as of time posted. Read our full disclosure policy here.

Its Thursday and you know what that means, a new post about making money! If you missed my previous posts, then check them out here and here. I discuss in detail how to get paid to complete offers, as well as how to get cash back for online purchases.

There are so many different online programs available from helping you find discounts on travel to making sure your identity stays secure. Most of these programs typically bill you a monthly fee to access all the information and resources on their site. To get their site noticed they usually advertise free 1 month trials or sometimes a $1 fee for the first month. They also grab your attention with additional incentives such as free gift cards and products just for trying out their program. The great part is you can ALWAYS cancel within the trial period and still get a FREE gift card or other reward they may be offering.

Read my step by step instructions over here before you start signing up for the offers listed below.

How to Snag FREE Gift Cards:

  • Most trial offers are $1 or free for the first month.
  • Your free gift card for using the trial membership will not immediately be mailed upon signing up.
  • Wait a few days after signing up and you will get a email from them with directions and a link to sign up for the free gift card.
  • Follow the detailed instructions in the email to snag your free gift card!
  • Cancel your membership a few days before your first months trial ends. That way your gift card will have time to process.
  • When you call to cancel your membership the sales reps will be very pushy, so be aware. However, to avoid their sales pitch just repeat “I just want to cancel”.
  • Make sure you get a cancellation number and the name of the person your talking with. Write it down and keep it in case you have any problems with your cancellation.
  • If for some reason you didn’t cancel in time or didn’t cancel correctly and you get charged, call them up and they will most likely refund the amount for you anyway.

Here is a list of some current Gift Card offers:

  1. Clever ClubHouse– $20 Blockbuster Gift card for $1 trial.
  2. Complete Home– $20 Lowe’s Gift Card for $1 trial.
  3. Great Fun– $10 Exon Mobil Gift Card for $1 trial.

    i got a paper in the mail today. it is for $25 walmart gift card registration form. on it it says membership number required. the only info says mail back to po box 5152 de plaines il 60017. adaptive marketing llc is not affilliated with walmaft. the corner says 25qLMRFA. any ideas on this?

  2. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I was so excited to open my mail today! 70.00 in gift cards…I got three target 10.00….two blockbuster 10.00 and two lowe’s 10.00. So I have cancelled two of the offers…they were very pushy trying to trick me into saying ok when they said that I could stay on but I got them to cancel and give me the confirmation numbers and names…now I just have to wait for regular business hours and cancel two more. I still haven’t got my 30.00 from staples…is privacy guard a different company than the others? Thanks so much…I can’t wait to get use my free gift cards.

  3. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I still haven’t received my 30.00 staples card…did get a user card in the mail from live well…did this come before the gift card for anyone else?

  4. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I signed up for Privacy Guard on April 14 and still have not received the Staples card so I just went ahead and ended my free trial 3 days ago.

  5. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I got my 30.00 staples card in the mail!! YAHHHHH!

  6. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    has anyone ever did one of the big offers like for the laptops or the $500 cards just wondering if you actually got the product?

  7. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Complete Home never offered me anything else! They just sent me over to cancel it!
    OH well love that free Lowes GC, I will keep an eye on that CC statement for sure.

  8. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have only one complaint about the “freebie” GC. Nicoles Advantage watchamacallit……They were quick to charge my card, and they NEVER sent me anything regarding the Target GC. I cancelled with them and of course – THEN I got the postcard in the mail about te GC – a full month after I signed up. Beside that – the rest of them came through with no problems!

  9. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    ok i signed up on may 25th for the privacy guard one. then got the email about the gift card on june 2nd.
    how long did it take to get the staples gift card? its been 18 days since i signed up and 14 days since i got the email for the card. just wondering…i could really use paper and ink!!! from printing all them coupons lol.

  10. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I got the gc and I called to cance ove rthe weekend-VERY pushy gal.. I called again today and it took me 15 minutes to cancel still VERY pushy!!! Yeah glad thats over and I got my free Staples $$

  11. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    woo-hoo!!! i just got my $30 staples GC in the mail today. YAY im so excited lol. it took 16 days from the day i got my email to get it.

  12. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    These are such a scam, wish I never got in this mess. I signed up for four of them, all owned by the same Triligent Corp. obviously. 2 cost $1, 1 was free and then the Nicoles advantage for 2.95. Right Away Nicoles advantage charged me, then the Triligent comapny charged me $4.00 instead of $2.00 (they charged me 4 times instead of twice). Now, only five days later and they’ve charged me another $4! They’re gonna overdraft me! On top of that, the one company told me that I had to follow this link to download the form to request the card. I did, I then read in the fineprint of the form that the form had to be mailed out and post marked before 12-31-08! Why would they promise you a gift card on their website in 2009 and then put in fine print “post marked by 2008”? They are scamming on purpose! Has anyone else had this issue with this scamming company? I’m afraid I gave these scammers my cc info and now they can sell it or use it at will,and I ended up with nothing for it. Nicoles Advantage hasn’t even gotten back with me yet or acknowledged me. So far, I’m out $10.95 with nothing to show for but my lost identity on the net! sorry for the rambling, I’m just really mad!

  13. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I signed up for the walmart $25 gift card through home savings mall and never got a thing. I signed up on April 13, and cancelled May 4. I lost there phone number, can you give it to me? Thanks!
    I also did the easy bakeware trial April 13, cancelled May 1 and never got anything, I’ll call them tomorrow.
    Now, I’ve tried the Nicole’s Savings Advantage for the Target and Starbucks $25 gift cards, hopefully it works.
    Also the Everyday Values. Started July 1. Said they’d e-mail me to get my $20 rewards card and have got no email.
    This is my first time doing these, I really hope that they work.

  14. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    your article is great,I found a great make money site.
    Best 15 ways to earn money by home,make money to easy ways by home.

  15. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I just emaile Easy Bakeware as I ordered on April 4th, cancelled within the time frame and have yet to recieve my bakeware. Some people have gotten theirs quick…but not me. 🙁 Hopefully soon!

  16. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Becareful of some of the gift cards on the cash grab site. If you keep getting ask to go into trails for a 25 dollar gift card be warned. I did one 25 dollar gift card for a 7day trail for simply you. that was fine but at the end it offered me another 25 $ gift card to answer 3 questions to go into another 25 $ card I did. then I went to complete another one I did it and then low and behold another easy one. Alarms went off I looked it up and low in behold google hit came up scam. I had already done 2 bad ones so far only 4 dollars has come off shoulda been 2. the 2 in question are Deal Max and Value plus. Dealmax is iffy they sent me comp email and I printed out a request form for a selection form sounds fishy 2 me. Hope I dont get ripped anymore these are all 7 day trials by the way. Good luck and read B4 you submit any credit card info.

  17. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I meant that it was Value Plus that was iffy DealMax is a complete scam as far as I know. Value Plus has reputably ties has ripped off B4. It could be trying to redeem it’s self but for some reason I think I am screwed. Good Luck

  18. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Thanks for all the info! I was able to sign up for a lot of gcs today. However, I was wondering about the Blockbuster one. I know its been a while, so I wasn’t sure if it would still work. I went over to the site & it said nothing about Blockbuster giftcards. Does anyone know if that one is still working? Thanks!

  19. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Btw, I did these all on a visa gc instead of a credit card just for safety!

  20. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I got my live well and everyday values cards. Not the gift cards yet. I got the company’s canceled with no problems as well took a little work. Hopefully I get my gift cards as well. Love this site. for more ways along with this visit my blog and website at
    See my babies too so cute. Don’t get scammed just listen to the good people who go though that for you so you can avoid it. So you can save and make money hassle free.

  21. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I got my Everyday Values $20 in American Express cards, Yay! I also got a $10 rebate check for sending in a gas receipt. I did pay the $1 trial plus $11.99 for one month but I got $30! Not too bad. I’ve never been scammed by these companies yet but I keep very good records and read everything.

  22. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    You should re-post the STAPLES 30$ gift card! It’s great for back2school… and I got it within a week of signing up!!

  23. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Ok Everyday Values is a legit totally They sent me 40 dollars worth of rebates. Also they sent me my form for the 20 dollar gift card 60 dollars. I am reopening My account with them right now. Thanks Great deal

  24. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Didn’t see the months I have one rebate for 10 dollars. For the months of july aug, and sept. the others go on the same not to bad though. Just thought I would clarify

  25. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I actually did the target one, which led me to another one through travelers advantage, that got me $20 in exxon gift cards (got in less then 2 weeks). I called to cancel, and the lady told me to stay through my trial period which ends in a little over 2 week. And I was like no thanks. And she said Well if I didn’t cancel today, that she would send me out today $50 in gift cards to exxon and another $50 in gift cards for grocereys (did not state where)!! My trial period still has a little over 2 weeks left and I should get the gift cards before the trial period is over!!!! I scored $120 in gift cards during a trial period! SWEETNESS!!!!

  26. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    just curious how long it took for everyone to get their staples gc?

  27. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    It’s been a little over a month and I recieved my Live Well Target cards, Privacy Gaurd Staples card, Complete Home checks and the Great Fun checks. I was really discouraged at first since they did over bill my credit card but after all the companies double charged me for some reason, my pre-pay card was maxed out and they could not charge anymore. So i only ended up paying like $2.00 for each.

    The Staples gift card was the most exciting since they came right away and never billed me. They were very honest. The Nicoles Savings Advantage on the other hand left much to be desired. They charged me right away, never sent me anything in the mail. When I called them to tell them I’d recieved nothing about the gift cards or welcome package the woman became very snobby and told me that I do not get the cards since I’m on a trial. IF I sign up as a full member THEN I can apply for my cards. Since my card was already maxed, I never got the cards. I’m wondering if I try it again If I’ll be able to get the cards?

  28. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Now I just wish I would hear something from the bakeware. It’s been like 2-3 months and I’ve heard nothing yet. 🙁

  29. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just did the Live Well one less than 2 weeks ago and received my gift cards today! Love Target gift cards.

  30. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Are you not doing this section of the blog anymore?

  31. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I called to cancel my nicole savings advantage thingy and they told me that they didn’t have a record of me at all. That’s funny since they sent me a welcome e-mail with a name and password. I am watching my checking account like a hawk. They did tell me that if for some reason I get billed??? that i would have to fax a copy of my bank statement to them to get it taken off. I will never do any of these anymore. It is not worth the stress of it all.

  32. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Hi, I have always loved you site! I come on here daily, sometimes more than once a day. I signed up for Privacy Guard about a week ago, and got my $30 Staples gift card today! So, Thanks for all of the great deals you have on your site. I also did the Live Well one, and I received my member info a few days ago. Still waiting for the gift card though! Thanks for all that you do.

  33. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I did privacy guard, livewell, and great fun with no problems at all. Nicole’s did say that i had to be a member after the trial to get gift card redemption forms. I let them bill the 9.93, got my forms, and after a few weeks, i cancelled before the next billing. Got my two $25 gift cards another week or two afterwards. No problems at all.

  34. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I just did Privacy Guard for the second time. I did it 2 weeks ago, the first time, and again last week for my 2nd time. I have gotten so far 4 $10 Target gift cards and, 2 $30 Staples gift cards. I did complete home for the 2nd time also, and now I’m getting 5 $10 Lowes gift cards! Great Christmas Presents!!!

  35. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Signed up for the staples. Went in to check out the Lowes and it only states ” up to 20.00 cash back” towards utility bills? does not mention 20.00 gift card?

  36. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    does anyone have the website to claim the gift card for buyers advantage??

  37. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    These trial offers are great. i have pulled in over $2000.00 in free cards this year. The best ones I get are through Credit One Bank and Orchard credit cards. The offers come with my statements and are usually $40.00 to $50.00 gift cards for walmart. Great for christmas gifts also.

    I can’t imagine bring in $2,000 from cards.
    can you post a little more about that?

  40. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    None of these seem to be offering the same deals, or any deals at all. Do you have any current ones to share? I’d love to snag some gift cards for Christmas gifts!

  41. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I’ve never done this before and I don’t think I understand it that well. Do you have to sign up first at The Cash Grab website before you sign up for any of these offers you have posted for?

  42. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Also, a nice & easy way to earn giftcards is thru Instead of using google to search I use swagbucks and have the chance of earning points which in turn, you can redeem for gift cards. Also if you shop thru their website (the have hundreds) of stores listed, you earn points as well. I’ve already redeemed for on gift card. This is the easiest for me, because I dont really have to put out any money unless I WANT to shop. Here is my referral link if anyone is interested.

    Thanks & Happy Swagging!!

  43. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I think the blockbuster one is over.

  44. Collin (Mrs. Hip)


    When you get confirmation from Complete Home, you should get an email that says HOW TO GET THE ITEM YOU REQUESTED. Instead of using that link, use this one:

    that will get you the 50 lowes gift card.

  45. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I signed up for the Stapes gift card through the Privacy Guard trial the beginning of November (yes I am a little behind) and still have not received my gift card 🙁

  46. Elise

    Ack! There arent’ any timestamps on these posts….Does the staples card come quickly, like before the 30-day trial so I can cancel and still get my gc w/out paying the $? I see Kristin said she signed up in November (I have no idea when she posted that…) and still hasnt’ received hers. Are they still valid? Thanks!!
