How to Get Free Amazon Gift Codes With CheckPoints

How to get FREE Amazon codes with the Checkpoints app.I’ve been using the CheckPoints app for a little while now and have to say I am very impressed. I have managed to cash out two times and got the $10 Amazon codes I asked for within minutes after requesting them. Anyway, if you have an iPhone or Android, you can download CheckPoints and use it every time you shop. It’s a completely free app and also very easy to use. Here’s how it works:

  • When you’re out shopping, use the app and let it determine your location.
  • If the store you are shopping at is on the list, use CheckPoints to “check in” for 2 CheckPoints
  • Look to see what items CheckPoints wants you to find at the store you’re in
  • Find the items on the list and scan them with your phone’s camera/barcode scanner
  • Get a certain number of CheckPoints for every item you scan (these add up fast!)
  • For every item scanned, you’ll also get some coins you can use to play fun little games, which also reward you with more CheckPoints

CheckPoints Add Up

Trust me, if you make an effort to use this app every time you shop, your points will add up fast. My problem is remembering to use it every time. It’s kind of hard to always remember when you’re grocery shopping and you have your kids with you. You only need 3250 points to get the free Amazon gift code for $10 and there are also plenty of other codes you can get for fewer points than that. If you want to save your points up, you can redeem them for higher-priced things like Nintendo Wiis, video games, iPads, and so forth.

The CheckPoints Referral Program

CheckPoints has a referral program that I really like. In fact, I think that all referral programs should work this way. You can download the CheckPoints app whether you were referred by anyone or not, but if you happen to have a referral code to use that someone gave you, CheckPoints will give you bonus CheckPoints when you sign up. If you don’t have a referral code to use, you don’t get those bonus points. And of course the person who you sign up under also gets bonus points as well. So you see, this referral program benefits both parties, not just the person getting the referral.

CheckPoints is the Real Deal

I have so far received two Amazon gift codes from CheckPoints and they arrived lightning fast — pretty much as soon as I asked for them. I have several other apps on my phone that are sort of similar, but CheckPoints is the one I find myself using all the time while most of the others don’t get used that often.

    Lately I’ve noticed a trend in apps that offer rewards like Checkpoints such as Shop Kick , Gigwalk, and iPoll. I have to say although they’re all innovative, iPoll has to be my favorite, the app just offers so many more opportunities to earn rewards, I have already made a couple hundred bucks off of them.

    I recently downloaded CheckPoints and just used it on my last shopping trip. There were about 8 or so items to scan and I scanned them all but there were at least 3 items for me to scan that my store doesn’t carry. Will the items that I have scanned eventually “go away” and new ones added? So far, this is the easiest to use – recognizes items quickly and doesn’t take long at all!
    Thanks for sharing!

      Yeah, I believe the items do change after a while. I haven’t used the app in a long time, but if I recall that is how it works.

    Checkpoints no longer gives new users 300pts when using a referral code. The new amount of points given has been reduced to 50pts. Any and all claims of a referral code that gives especially high amounts of points are false and scams. The code kgal94 is an honest code that will give a new user the additional 50pts when starting the app.

    how do I cash in alllll my points at once??..its telling me it will send me a $1 gift card for Amazon for every 335 points..but I don’t want 25 gift cards or 25 codes becuz there is no place on amazon to put more than just ONE PROMO CODE!…ugh! help! any suggestions??

      You would apply the codes to your gift card balance. When you’re on Amazon, you can go into your account and find where it says something about your gift card balance. That is where you copy and paste the codes. Once you paste one, you can hit submit and then it clears out and you can paste another or how many more you want. Then, when you buy something the next time, the amount of credit you have will show up when you go to check out. I hope this helps/makes sense.
