Swag Bucks is a search engine just like Google or Yahoo, but when you use the Swag Bucks toolbar for searching, you are randomly awarded Swag Bucks. You usually get awarded 4 to 10 Swag Bucks once or twice each day just for searching the web.
These Swag Bucks pile up and soon enough you have enough to cash in for free items like itunes cards, Walmart gift cards, Target gift cards, Lowes gift cards, paypal cash, and more. Swag Bucks makes money off the ads they feature, and then they share some of that revenue with you through Swag Buck gifts.
I have read stories online where one gal has never paid for a college textbook because she buys them online with the Amazon gift cards she gets from Swag Bucks. Another woman paid for all her Christmas gifts with Amazon gift cards she got from Swag Bucks. And another gal cashes in her Swag Bucks for Walmart gift cards so she can get her groceries for free.
I am saving up my Swag Bucks so I can get Amazon gift cards so I can get that faux moose head. Then I will move on to more noble goals like those above (smile, wink).
I started Swag Bucks on Aug 30 and I already have 363 bucks. It takes 450 Swag Bucks to earn a $5 Amazon gift card. I am estimating I should be able to earn 1 or 2 of these $5 Amazon gift cards every month. Not bad at all!!
Here are my Top 5 Tips on How to Earn More Swag Bucks:
1. First you need to join Swag Bucks. You can do so here. You just click on the red button that says "Free! Get Started." Do note that is my referral link. I do get Swag Bucks if you sign up thru my link, but even if I did not I would tell you about Swag Bucks cause who doesn't want free gift cards.
And for even more incentive to sign up thru me, Swag Bucks is going to give you 70 Swag Bucks if you plug in the code bintentional. You will need to click the text that reads "I have a sign up code" and put bintentional in there. That will give you 70 Swag Bucks in addition to the 30 Swagbucks you will get as you complete your profile!! That is 100 Swag Bucks to get you started and it only takes 450 to earn a $5 Amazon gift card!!
2. The easiest way to earn Swag Bucks is to download the tool bar to your browser. This allows you to search online without having to go directly to Swagbucks.com. The tool bar also gives you messages and Swag Codes. And you get 1 Swag Buck every day just for using this toolbar.
4. Do searches in the morning, mid day, and evening to maximize your chances for earning Swag Bucks. You're searching the web anyway right? Fridays are Mega Buck Days which means you get more Swag Bucks for your searches. On my first Friday, I did a search for one of my favorite blogs and was rewarded 50 Swag Bucks.
5. You can also earn Swag Bucks by entering polls, submitting codes, watching videos, completing special offers, and answering surveys. I do not do any of these just because I try to limit my time on the computer. I occasionally will click on the Check for Swag Code button in my Swag Bucks toolbar and it will tell me to check Swag Bucks Twitter or Facebook for a code. I will do that and enter the code in the box on the top right hand side of the Swag Bucks home page.
So tell me are you on Swag Bucks? What have you already earned with your Swag Bucks? What are your tips for earning more Swag Bucks?
