IT’S SWAGBUCKS FRIDAY – ARE YOU SWAGGIN?
If you are not using Swagbucks then you have no idea what you are missing. What is Swagbucks? Swagbucks is a search engine, much like Google, that lets you earn points just by searching for things on the internet. You accumulate points on a daily basis, and once you earn enough points you can cash them in at the Swagstore for some various prizes. You can also refer friends to Swagbucks and earn 1 Swagbuck for every Swagbuck they earn up to 100 Swagbucks. Sharing the experience with others makes this a win-win situation for everyone.
The Swagstore is filled with a lot of different prizes that you can redeem your points for.
My favorite so far is the Amazon gift cards. We are on a very strict budget in my household, but that doesn’t mean that as a mom I don’t deserve to splurge on myself every once in awhile. Swagbucks lets me do that because I turn my points into gift cards and then use them on Amazon.com to get me free, or cheap, items. I usually earn enough Swagbucks in one month to get me $25 worth of Amazon gift cards. That keeps my book and magazine obsession filled. Plus, I get very cheap dvd’s as well. (TIP: When buying books with your Amazon gift cards, make sure you search in the used book section first. You can get the same books for a fraction of the cost.)
How do you know if you’ve won Swagbucks?
That’s really easy. If you complete a search that has won Swagbucks, you will see an image like the one to the left at the top of your page. Swagbucks will range anywhere from $5 to $50. Especially on Friday when they run a mega Swagbucks special. You don’t have to keep count of your earnings because your current Swagbucks balance will be reflected at the top, right hand corner of your search screen.
Swagbucks is easy to use and I suggest that you sign up for it really soon because it can make your future birthday present/Christmas shopping a lot easier on your pockets.
