Using Fetch to Get Free Apple Gift Cards

With Fetch, you earn points and rewards for doing what you do every day: shop. Just open up the app and snap a picture of your receipt. Every snap puts you closer to rewards, like a free Apple gift card. To get started, just:

Step 1: Download the Fetch App

To earn points, you’ll need an account and the Fetch app (you’ll find it in the iOS and Google Play stores).

Step 2: Snap Every Receipt

You don’t need to snap every receipt, but you should! It’s the surest way to get as many points as possible. Here’s how to snap your first one:

  1. Open the Fetch app.
  2. Find the camera icon at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap the camera and choose “Snap.”
  4. Position your receipt in front of the camera.
  5. Snap that receipt!

Step 3: Earn Fetch Points

Special offers and featured brands let you rack up the points pretty quickly, but even without them, every receipt nets you at least 25 points. Have an email receipt you need to snap? Just connect your email to Fetch for secure, automatic snapping of your eReceipts. 

Looking to fast track your rewards? In addition to marking special offers and featured brands as favorites in the Fetch app, you can earn points playing games with Fetch Play.

Step 4: Redeem Points for a Free Apple Gift Card From Fetch

Not sure where to redeem your points for Apple gift cards? We’ve got you covered:

  2. Select the Apple gift card reward.
  3. Select the dollar amount.
  4. Tap “get my reward.”
  5. When your gift card is ready, you’ll receive a notification.

How to Redeem an Apple Gift Card

To redeem an Apple gift card, simply:

  1. Open the app store.
  2. Find the 16-digit code for your card (it should be in your confirmation email if it’s a digital card).
  3. Sign into the app store.
  4. Select “Redeem Gift Card or Code.”
  5. Enter the 16-digit code. If you have a physical gift card, you can use your camera instead.
  6. Your gift card should now be part of your balance.

While most Fetch gift cards can be redeemed in-store, you’ll want to use your free Apple gift cards from Fetch online in the Apple or iOS stores.

What Can I Buy With an Apple Gift Card?

You will want to check the terms and conditions in the app just to be sure, but you should be able to use your Apple gift card to buy anything you find in the Apple or iOS stores. Here are a few ideas of what you can buy with an Apple gift card:

  • Products and accessories in the Apple Store

  • Music, movies, books or TV shows

Can I Use Apple Gift Cards at Best Buy?

Most Best Buy locations have a space that looks an awful lot like an Apple Store, but it’s still a Best Buy. They’ll accept Best Buy gift cards and Visa gift cards, but not Apple ones.
