I kept hearing about swagbucks and thinking I should do it, but kept putting it off and thinking it was too much trouble. Well I finally bit the bullet a while back, and I'm so glad I did!!
Each month, I earn enough points for $10 in amazon gift cards. Now you're thinking that's not much! But think about it....in one year I'll earn enough with swagbucks to get $120 worth of Amazon gift cards!! Think about how useful that could be at Christmas. I could buy my son a video game, some CDs, some DVDs, some books, etc, things I usually buy from amazon anyway.
You don't HAVE to buy amazon gift cards. There are many other gift cards you can get, or items you can purchase, etc. But most people buy the amazon gift cards because they require less bucks to purchase than other items and are a better deal. (You essentially use your earned swagbucks to buy these things).
So, .....How do I earn these swagbucks??? I'm so glad you asked!
You earn them by searching with their toolbar. You don't HAVE to download their toolbar if you don't want. You can just go to their site and use the toolbar, or even leave the site minimized so you can use their toolbar anytime during the day that you want. But after a few days I did install the toolbar and it's made it way simpler. My husband and son even use it to surf the web now. It was easy enough to install that even I, the computer challenged, did it in just a few minutes.
You could probably earn more if you search a lot. I really only go to the same few sites most of the time, and so don't use it too much but still have earned that much. You can also shop through a few links and earn some. Also they have twitter and facebook points that people can earn, but since I don't do either of those I haven't gotten them. So you can probably even earn more than I'm doing!
