Article Body:
Merchants want to know what appeals to users and consumers and what does
not. But often it is quite difficult for merchants to figure out such
information from you, the consumer. So, some merchants decide to approach
prospective customers or users to give a candid opinion about their
product or service. But like every thing in this universe, nothing comes
free! Thus, many merchants offer ‘free gift cards’ in exchange for you,
the customer providing them with your opinions. If approached correctly,
this can be a fun and easy way to save some quick cash.


Other times, the merchants simply want to attract new customers and/or
leads. One of the easiest ways to do this is to offer a special deal,
coupon or discount in the form of a free gift card. This puts the
consumer in the driver’s seat, as various companies compete with each
other to offer more attractive deals.


Now the question about how and where one can get such free gift cards.
The best way to get hold of them is online. Companies like Wal-Mart,
Burger King, JC Penney, Kmart, Sears, Speedway, Subway and the like
frequently give away these gift cards to people for sharing some personal
information or signing up for a free trial, subscription or limited
offer..


If you search online, you can find websites such as quizpoints.com and
yourgiftcards.com which provide visitors access to several questionnaires
and offers from reliable merchants. Generally the respondents have to
answer some simple (and some times complex) questions presented in a
questionnaire or quiz format. Once the respondent has successfully
answered the given set of questions, he or she is awarded some points.
The respondent can thereafter answer some more quizzes like this and keep
on accumulating points in his or her account. Once the points cross a
certain threshold, they can exchange it for a free gift card from the
list provided by the website. Quizpoints.com for instance offers the
respondents ‘free gift card’ of $10 denomination in lieu of 500
accumulated points and $50 denomination for 2300 points.
Sites like these act as online direct marketers who aggregate advertisers
in order to target consumers online. They are reimbursed for their
services by being given a percentage of the merchant’s sales or other
such set criteria. Therefore all three parties benefit from this
transaction. The respondent gets his reward ‘free gift card’, the website
gets its commission and the marketer or the trader gets his information
and/or lead.


For the first time ‘free gift card’ hunter, there are however some words
advice. Never undervalue the power of ‘research’. This can save the free
gift card seeker a great deal of time and frustration. Also one needs to
be aware of the fine print in the free gift offer terms. And last but not
the least – always apply for free gift cards from reputable websites that
you are familiar with.
