Here’s How to Get an Amazon Gift Card for Eating Mac ’n Cheese
Some things in life sound too good to be true, like earning money for eating your childhood (or, ahem, college hangover) favorite — mac ’n cheese.
We know. We know. As an adult, it’s kind of gross when you really think about that orange powdered cheese, but it’s so worth the nostalgia. And convenience. And, I mean, it tastes pretty darn good, too. (Have you tried mixing in a can of cream of mushroom soup?!)
Next time you’re at the grocery store and stocking up on your Kraft mac ’n cheese — or any other grocery essentials for that matter — use the Fetch Rewards app to snap a photo of your receipt and earn points toward a free Amazon gift card.
That’s it! No clipping coupons. No claiming offers. No surveys. No barcodes.
Sooo… When’s the Kraft Mac ’n Cheese Come Into Play?
With Fetch Rewards, you’ll earn points for scanning any receipt, no matter what you purchase — and no matter what grocery store you purchase it from. Super simple.
However, you’ll earn even more points when you purchase specific brands and products, which include Kraft, Klondike, Oscar Mayer, Huggies and more than 200 other brands you likely already purchase.
The points you earn per receipt vary, depending on what (and how much) you purchase. If you buy one of the promoted brands or products, you’ll earn even more — as much as 5,000 points for one item.
Once you collect 3,000 points (they add up fast!), pocket a $3 gift card to popular retailers, including Amazon, Kohl’s and Target. Or, save up your points for higher value gift cards.
Here’s how to get started:
Download the Fetch Rewards app (available for iPhone and Androids users).
Create your account. You just need the basics — no credit card information or anything super personal!
Enter code PENNY when it asks for a referral code. This will get you an extra 2,000 points once you take a photo of your first receipt.
After your next grocery run (at any store), snap a photo of your receipt to collect your points.
Just remember: Fetch will reject any receipts more than 14 days old, so don’t forget to take that picture! You’re basically be throwing away free gift cards if you don’t.
And let’s be real. You can use those gift cards you earn to buy even more mac ’n cheese, and that makes us feel all warm and cheesy inside.
