If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably logged an insane amount of hours playing Words with Friends. After being stuck with all those impossible letters (Xanthum is a word, right?), you deserve something for your troubles — besides the joy of playing a dirty word.  

While you’re at it, why not earn some free gift cards, too? When you play games through Mistplay, a free Android app, you get rewarded to do what you already do.

Mistplay offers new games for you to discover, plus the ones you love to play. Think games like Words With Friends 2, Yahtzee, Clash Royale, Star Wars games and more. 

You can find what you want to play on the “Games” page, then you’ll be redirected to the Google Play Store for downloading.  While you play games, Mistplay runs in the background and notifies you when you earn in-app currency that you can use to redeem rewards. (To give you an idea, 300 units = $1, and 1,800 units = $5.)

The amount of units you earn varies, but keep in mind that you receive units only when you play the games you add to your Mixlist, or via bonuses from leveling up. Everyone gets 200 units for signing up — and you’ll get another 100 bonus units when you enter the code PENNY100 after sign up. (I think that’s a double word bonus!)

When you’re ready to splurge, redeem your units for gift cards from brands including Amazon (our personal fave), Cineplex, PlayStation and more. So basically, you get to play games to earn gift cards that can… buy you more games. And more. But, more games.
