What is Swagbucks and Why Should I Care?

These days, we’re all looking for ways to save money.  One of the easiest ways I’ve ever come across is through Swagbucks.  You can earn FREE gift cards for places like Amazon, Target, Overstock and more just by doing your normal searching on the web.  But instead of using Google or Yahoo search engines, you create a Swagbucks account (easy!) and use the Swagbucks search engine instead (really easy!)  As you do your normal everyday online searches, you earn Swag Bucks (like points) that you can save up and then redeem for gifts cards and products in the Swag Store.

Swagbucks has been around since 2008, so it’s tried and true and not just some new phenomenon that you have to be suspicious of.  I have used it off and on for years and just realized that I should be telling all of YOU about it, too!  My favorite thing to save up for is the Amazon gift cards because you can find just about anything you could ever want or need on Amazon.  I have heard of people who save up their Swag Bucks all year and then redeem them for enough Amazon gift cards to do all their Christmas shopping with them!  Smart idea!

And this is a useful tool for small business owners who have fans, or basically anyone who has friends, because it has an excellent referral program.  When you refer people, you earn their Swag Bucks, as well!

To start, simply click HERE and set up your Swagbucks account.  You can then start earning points by doing a variety of things:

1)  Go to swagbucks.com every time you need to search online for something.  (Make sure you’re logged in all the time so you get your Swag Bucks!)

2)  Download the Swagbucks toolbar to your browser and then you can search via the toolbar whenever you want without having to go to swagbucks.com each time.

4) You can also earn Swag Bucks by watching Swagbucks TV, completing surveys, redeeming codes and various special offers that you might sometimes run across.

The online searching is by far the easiest, though, in my opinion.  Especially if you are on the Internet regularly anyway for work or play.

Enjoy!  And start searching!
