If you want to make the money/gift cards you need to put time into doing them. I am up early doing surveys to make a bit of extra cash...
Try superpoints. I'm doing it this morning just clicking a button to earn points for gift cards. I love using gift cards for books later.

SWAGBUCKS This is where I get my gift cards for amazon for my addiction to reading! I make sure I use this search engine and do the daily poll every day I love the points. I make at last 10 dollars in gift cards a month just randomly doing searches. I haven't done many surveys because they seem to take forever and I never seem to qualify!
