When I first heard about Swagbucks, I thought it was a scam.  I mean, you just search & spend 2 minutes a day on the site & you can earn Amazon gift cards and Restaurant gift cards?  Had to be a scam, right???  I’m here to tell you, it isn’t.

In the last 6 months I’ve received $25 in Amazon gift cards and $125 in Restaurant.com gift cards.  We eat out with friends quite often, so this has been a huge help for us.  And I only allow myself to buy books for my kindle using the Amazon gift $.  Of course there are many more rewards including apparel, books, movies, posters, music, jewelry, kitchen items & many more categories.

How does it work?  You sign up at Swagbucks and then you earn swagbucks in the following ways every day:

  1. take a couple of seconds to answer a simple question on the daily poll
  2. take a couple of minutes to answer questions on a survey (lengthy, but you can get 125 swagbucks per survey)
  3. take a couple of seconds to go through the NOSO (no obligation) offers
  4. use swagbucks.comto search instead of a regular Google search

That’s it.  You can do these tips for just a couple of minutes a day.

If you want to get some serious Swagbucks, you can also do the following:

  1. Watch Swagbucks TV (it’s short videos that you can have playing in the background while you do other things)
  2. Daily deals (similar to Groupon, but while you’re buying the items, you’re also earning Swagbucks)
  3. Play games.  You can either play for free, or spend a couple of swagbucks hoping to win tournaments.
  4. Coupons!  You print out coupons (it’s like coupon.com) and earn 10 swagbucks per coupon that is redeemed!
  5. You can shop from their store & earn Swagbucks
  6. You can download the free toolbar and be alerted to special codes plus earn 1 Swagbuck per day that you have the toolbar active
  7. You can refer others to Swagbucks
  8. Finally, there are special offers that you can fill out and earn Swagbucks

Just using the search feature, I’ve earned more than 1,600 swagbucks.

Give Swagbucks a try & earn some free stuff while you’re on the internet anyway!  You’ll never know what you’ll earn next!
