Jan 272009Do You Swag?

Swagbucks is a bargain hunter’s dream. Many of you already know about it but for those that don’t, it’s the Tuesday Tip!

What is it?
Swagbucks is a search engine designed to help you earn digital dollars called Swagbucks. These bucks can be redeemed for merchandise and gift cards. The gift cards are what I’m planning to use my Swagbucks on. You can get a $5 Amazon.com gift card for 450 Swagbucks or if you would rather, 500 Swagbucks will get you a $5 Starbucks card. Stan and I are saving all of our Swagbucks until Christmastime. Then we can cash them in a help defray the costs of Christmas.

How it Works?
Swagbucks uses Google technology so you get great search results. The best option is to download the Swagbucks toolbar. Then it is there ready for searching anytime. You just search like you would on any other search engine. When you do, you have the opportunity to win a Swagbuck. The come in denominations of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 100. You won’t win one every time you search but you will win them fairly often.

How Do I Sign Up?
Swagbucks is very simple to sign up for. In fact, it takes all of about one minute. There are no fees, no credit card required and no phone number or address requested. Once you sign up, you are credited 30 bucks

I Signed Up. What Now?
If you search a lot, you’ll probably earn enough bucks to earn a $5 gift card every month. Now that’s not too exciting but your earnings will multiply when you refer others and you get extra points for shopping online through partnered sites or even by recycling your old cell phone or MP3 player.

Keep in mind, you aren’t going to earn hundreds of dollars overnight but you could easily save up your points all year and cash them in at a birthday or Christmas and be able to get some really nice gifts without spending anything. Plus it’s not hard. There’s nothing you have to remember to do. Just download the toolbar and you will be on your way.
