For some time now many online sites have offered Free Games for consoles and PC to their users. Finally for the first time, you can get Minecraft Free! Keep in mind this isn't a method to get a pirated version of the game or anything of the kind. You will get a Minecraft Paid account bought for you. The Creator (Notch) still gets paid for the purchase of the game. However you won't be the one who is paying for it - this site does!

Join the growing number of users to this site, in getting Minecraft completely Free and attainable in just a couple of hours!

With this guide you will be able to get a Minecraft account upgraded to the paid version. Of course, the game will be bought for you.

How does it work?

The prize site that you join will purchase the actual games for you and send the game to you, in this case they will activate your username on Minecraft with a purchased registration. 
The site also offers free Amazon gift certificates, which are posted to you by mail from Amazon or even Steam games, which are Gift purchased for you. It is only recently that they have added Minecraft to the list of prizes.

One condition is that you need to be from the USA, UK, Canada or Australia to be able to claim your prize from the site.

Points can be traded in for prizes. 1 point on the site is worth $1 which you can use to request your game.

To start, click on the "Get Points" tab at the top of the page and check for Available offers.

The points for completing these offers are shown on the right side of each offer and you should also see a description of what you need to do to complete each offer. Make sure you carefully follow the description to get your points.

It is strongly recommended to get your first points by using the Walkthrough further below. As it will guide you step-by-step through a particular offer.
If you wish to proceed on your own, the best advice would be to first change the setting to "Least to Greatest" using the "sort by" filter and trying out a low crediting offer to begin with. After you've credited a low crediting offer it should give you a nice overview of where to start, after which you can move on to Greater reward offers.
