Free Gift Cards from Recycle Bank

Posted by Madison on April 22, 2014

It’s Earth Day! To celebrate, I went through all of our articles from the last six years to find the most popular article that combines a green lifestyle and financial rewards. For long time readers, remember when we introduced RecycleBank a few years ago? And for new readers, have you heard of ReclycleBank? Here’s a recap of the ReclyceBank program.


RecycleBank allows you to earn points for taking green actions like recycling household goods and cutting back on your energy use.

What is RecycleBank?

RecycleBank trades the actions you make that have a positive, green impact on your home for points that you can use for rewards you choose.

Rewards can include gift cards, products, discounts and coupons from the world’s leading brands.

How It Works

  1. Register for RecycleBank.
  2. Earn points for taking everyday green actions.
  3. Redeem points for great rewards like discounts on groceries, entertainment and even gift cards.

RecycleBank Terms and Conditions

  • Registration is currently open to residents of the U.S. and U.K only.
  • As long as your Recyclebank account is active at least once every twelve (12) months (meaning there’s some points-earning or points-spending), your points won’t expire.

Comments to Free Gift Cards from Recycle Bank

  1. That’s too bad that this is not available here in Canada. It sounds like a great program. The only thing I wonder about is how they hold you accountable. What’s to stop someone from stretching the truth or outright lying about their contributions?
