Earning steam games, steam wallet and other gift cards for free can be really hard if you don't have a plan. With the plan I propose, you will get your first Steam Game in 5 to 10 minutes. And 15 to 30 minutes of your time a day will get you about 50 to 80$ in gift cards a month.

How to get your first Steam Game in less than 5 minutes
There are games for as low as 65 tremor coins ( check them out here ), and, depending on your region, a single mobile app to install can give you up to 250 coins, and it takes less than 30 seconds to achieve:
Click on "Register" at the top right of the main page, enter your info with a real e-mail. You won't receive any spam from this site, trust me.
2. Click the "Get Coins" link at the top right of the page.
3. Earn Coins:
Install Mobile Apps (Fastest way to earn coins, 100 to 450 coins depending on the app and region)
Supersonic, trialplay and several other sponsors offer you the possibility to install mobile apps from Google Play or App Store, to your Ios or Android device to get coins. It takes only a few minutes to download an app and to open it in order to earn coins.
Just login to your tremorgames account from your mobile device and the offers will lead you directly to the app store or to google play.
All apps are from the google play store and apple App store, so don't worry about the security of your device.
Don't bother installing apps that gives you less than 80 coins. And be sure to read the description before downloading an app, since some of them require you to get to a specific level in the app. The simplest ones to do are described as "download and open app".
Important note: If a sponsored app have already been installed in the past on your device, you might not get any credits.
At this point you should have enough coins to get your first steam game. On the Tremor Rewards page, look for "games under 1000 coins" section.
Do simple tasks (in my region, gives me 150 to 1000 coins in 15min)
There is a lot of types of tasks to do, that pay from 4 to 400+ tremor coins per single task: visiting web sites and categorizing them, answering questions on websites, simple surveys, listening to audio and rating the voice... and so on. Each task can take from 1 minute to 5+ minutes to complete.
My favorites are short surveys, answering questions about a website, type what you hear and rate the voice you hear. All are fast and easy to do.
You must login with your facbook account in order to complete tasks.
Tips for when doing tasks
- When you first visit the tasks page, just click on the "Reward" coloumn on top of the tasks table, and look for the tasks that have the most stars. Those are the easiest and highest paying tasks that you can do.
- When you first start doing tasks, you are at level 1, and can only do level 1 tasks. When you do enough level 1 tasks, you will earn a level 2 badge that will let you access level 2 tasks. Level 2 tasks pay a higher amount of tremor coins than level 1.
Watch Videos (in my region i can get 50 to 150 coins every day)
Depending on your region and time*, several sponsors offer videos to watch:
- Token Ads
- Video Offers (Virool)
- V11 Videos
- and more...
* Watch each video for at least 30 seconds, If you can't see any videos to watch, don't despair. Check it out later, since videos are put on at specific times of the day, depending on your region, you won't see them all, right when you register.
4. Click the Tremor Rewards at the top of the page, redeem your coins for free Steam Games.
If you want a specific Steam Game that is not offered in the Tremor Rewards section, then just get a Steam wallet code with your coins and go get the game you want on steam.
5. Get Tremor coins faster:
Refer your friends
You can get 20% of the coins won in offers (videos, mobile apps, surveys) and 10% of the coins won in tasks by your friends. To refer a friend do the following:
1. Click on your username at the top right of the screen.
2. Just under your achievements (if you played achievement games) you will see "Refer friends and earn tremor coins" Under that title, you will see a red colored html link. This is your referral link.
3. Copy your referral link and send it to your friends, and tell them how awsome Tremor Games is, and why they should register.
4. Once your friends click on the referral link you sent them, and register at tremor games, you're done.
I suggest you do Peanut Labs surveys, because contrary to other sponsors, with peanut labs you know quickly if you qualify or not for the survey. And also, you get paid almost at every survey. My second choice of sponsor for surveys is TrialPlay. Stay away from Supersonic surveys.
Trade in TF2, CS:GO items and Steam Trading cards
You can get some tremor coins by trading in your items and trading cards. The trading is handled by a bot, so just follow the steps on the links below. You must have redeemed at least 1 item from Tremor Rewards to be eligible.

How I proceed
What I do is Surveys + swagbucksTV + Search + daily poll + NOSO on Swagbucks, tasks + install apps (Android) on Tremor Games and install apps (ios) on FreeMyApps.
1. Each morning when I wake up, I open up the swagbucks tv app on my mobile device and start to play a video. Then, I check up Swagbucks.com on my pc to see if there is any surveys to do (survey dashboard, peanut labs and e-mail). If there is, I complete the survey and it takes about 15 minutes.
2. Then at noon I do Search + Noso + daily poll and it takes me 5 minutes to do.
** If there is no surveys in the morning, I do the Search + Noso + Daily poll in the morning, then check out if there are any surveys to do at noon. (Some days there is no surveys to do or I don't qualify, but the other days that I get 300+ swagbucks compensates that.)
3. I do nothing until 7:30 pm eastern time, then at 7:30 pm I go to Tremor Games to complete Tasks while I surf the web. That takes me about 5 minutes in total to do.
4. Just before going to bed, I verify again if there is a survey to do at Swagbucks and do it if there is one.
This way, I am able to get about 70 to 300 Swagbucks/day and 250 to 500 Tremor coins/day without referrals. I get around 100 to 300 additional tremor coins from my referrals, and 0 to 20 swagbucks/day from referrals. And that gives me about 50 to 80$ in games a month (Steam wallet + amazon credit) and I don't spend more than 15 to 30 minutes a day doing this.
With this way of proceeding, In a year, I was able to get 115 games on steam, without counting the games that I got on amazon.com, psn, desura and gog! And they are not small games, they include the likes of Halo 5, Witcher 3, Shadow of Mordor, Need For Speed Rivals, Arkham Knight, Rise of The Tomb Raider, Quantum Break and many more.
