Getting a free Google Play gift card code
If you’ve already been searching for free credit, you might’ve stumbled upon generators claiming to create these codes for free. Please be warned; most of these generators are fake and the owner is just trying to make money off of you, this counts for other freebies as well. Below are a couple of methods that allow you to get free Google Play codes, all without giving a lot in return.
List of free Google Play codes (Recently updated)
Below is a list of redeem codes that have been generated by using the generator in the second way to get free Google Play gift cards. Keep in mind that this list is updated weekly, so act fast before all the codes have been redeemed by our visitors.
Getting a free code by using our generator (no human verification)
The team of GuideStorm has built a Google Play gift card generator that creates random codes in the pattern of a real Google Play code. Feel free to play around with it by clicking the button below, maybe it’s your lucky day and the code works.
Warning: On the internet, you may find many fake Google Play code generators. Almost all of these websites exist to scam their users by asking to fill out a human verification. If you are asked to do so, close the page right away. They are trying to steal your personal information and sell it to third-parties.
Participating in giveaways
Recently we have discovered a new way to get free Google Play codes, which is by joining giveaways. Over the last couple of weeks, we have been investigating and found that many giveaways happen on Reddit. Some subreddits where we have found Google Play code giveaways on were /r/giveaways/, /r/RandomActsOfGaming, /r/sweepstakes/ and /r/FREE/.
Most of these giveaways work through Gleam, which is software built especially for giveaways. You can join a raffle by earning points, which you get through performing simple social media-related actions such as following them on Twitter or Instagram.
There is also a trick to find giveaways like the ones on Reddit and that has to do with Google searches. With special search parameters, you can easily filter your results and only see the search results you’re interested in.
Try it out for yourself by searching the query above in the Google search engine.
intitle:’google play’ AND intitle:’giveaway’
You will see every page that contains the words ‘Google Play’ and ‘giveaway’ in the title of their website. This results in a list of many different websites that are offering free Google Play codes. We were able to participate in 10 different giveaways using this method, within only 30 minutes of work.
Another way of joining a giveaway is through YouTubers or popular people on other social media platforms. We’ve seen a couple of Twitch streamers give away a big amount of free Google Play codes before.
Swap other gift cards
Have you received another type of gift card for your birthday that you won’t be using? Good news for you, it is possible to swap your card for a Google Play gift card by using CardCash.
CardCash is a platform that makes it possible to buy, sell and even swap hundreds of different types of gift cards. If you’ve got a gift card laying around that you won’t be using, we highly suggest visiting their website to check if they have any free Google Play codes in stock.
This is one of Google’s best-kept secrets: the search giant lets you make money by answering simple questions (also knows as Surveys). You can do that through the Opinion Rewards app, which has been available for many countries for a while now. Install the app, enter some basic information such as your age and zip code, and you will be sent a questionnaire regularly. After completing such a questionnaire you will immediately receive a small reward. This can be either free Google Play credit or PayPal balance.
However, don’t immediately dream of golden mountains, because the exact credit that you save together varies considerably from user to user and from a questionnaire to questionnaire. Sometimes you get several very specific questions that will give you the maximum amount of 75 cents, while next time it will only be a single question for five cents. Keep in mind that your credit is only valid for one year.
Keep in mind that you won’t simply earn a Google Play gift card in just a few hours. These surveys (similar to a human verification) take only a few seconds to complete and will therefore only credit you a couple of cents. Next to that, usually only a couple of surveys are available each day, so it could take you weeks before you get your first free code.
AppNana is an app that allows you to earn gift cards. The only thing that it requires is performing a couple of simple tasks that even a four-year-old can complete. You can easily earn points by watching videos, playing games or installing certain apps from their advertiser.
If you’ve got a lot of friends, their referral system comes in handy. We have gotten $100 in free Google Play credit by inviting everyone in our WhatsApp contact list. Every person that joined through our referral link gave us credits to spend on gift cards.
Another app that allows you to earn Google Play codes through simple actions is Mistplay. This is a get-paid-to app that lets you test the latest games and getting gift cards in return, how cool is that?
We have been testing this app for a week by letting our children play games through this app a few hours per day, and the results were amazing. After just a week of playing, we have gotten a free 50$ Google Play code and even some PlayStation Network balance.
As an adult, it wouldn’t be worth it to spend time playing games in return for some gift cards, but if your children love gaming I recommend installing it on their phone or tablet. At the moment of writing, it’s only available for Android devices. If you are an iOS user and you are interested in using their app for a free Google Play gift card you can join their waiting list.
On their website, InstaGC states that gift cards are delivered instantly upon request. We have taken this to the test by earning points a free Google Play gift card. Here is how we did this:
We watched a couple of videos
We’ve completed a few short and simple surveys
We’ve shopped for a new mouse through their website (They get a commission, and we received points in return)
After performing the actions named above, we have gotten a $10 free Google Play code in about an hour of work. When we compare this website to the others in this article, the shopping part makes it a unique selling point. If you are about to do a new purchase, check if it’s available through their app to receive some cashback in the forms of a Google Play gift card.
Having paid out over 300 million dollars, Swagbucks is one of the giants in the GPT industry to receive a free Google Play code from. With thousands of positive reviews, we recommend you to give this website a try.
After signing up you will quickly see that a sign-up bonus has been received in the form Swagbucks, which is their online currency. To unlock gift cards you will have to earn more bucks which can be done by performing the following actions:
Participate in a survey or a daily poll
Watch videos (Hands-free)
Get cashback (Similar to the shopping of InstaGC)
Use their search engine
Download and play awesome games
Purchase gift cards and get a 10% bonus
All of this can be done through their website or from their mobile app which can be downloaded here. In our opinion, Swagbucks is one of the easiest methods in this list to earn a Google Play gift card for free.
Another GPT website we highly recommend to try out is FreeMyApps. Users on their platform can earn a Google Play gift card by playing a sponsored game or automatically watching videos through their mobile app. The second option means it can be done while you are making your homework.
They claim to have given out over 20 million dollars of gift cards already, can you imagine how many resources of your favorite game you can purchase with that?! We’ve received a free Google Play code through their website by only playing a couple of sponsored games which took us a total of 40 minutes.
Do you have a different type of gift card that you are not going to use? At /r/giftcardexchange/ it’s possible to trade it for a Google Play gift card with another person that’s in a similar situation.
We have tested this method by advertising our PSN gift card and requested a free Google Play code in return. After a couple of hours, we had received a few messages of which one person was interested in trading. Since we could prove we run a big website they first gave us the Play Store credit, after which we gave him the PSN code.
Be warned though, one person will have to go first and you could end up getting scammed. Make sure the guy you are trading with doesn’t have any bad intentions by checking the history of his Reddit profile.
