Today is Swagbucks’ 5th “birthday” and they’re giving away more swagbucks, bonuses and even cash to celebrate!
So, why is this a “Spend It Wisely” post? Well, Swagbucks is one of the easiest and most effective ways to save money on things on which you might normally have trouble saving.
Here’s how it works. Sign up for a Swagbucks account here. Then, use Swagbucks as your search engine. You’ll earn swagbucks (points) randomly as you use their search engine, and those swagbucks add up to free gift cards or other rewards. It takes 450 swagbucks to earn a $5.00 Amazon gift card. That’s the gist of it.
You can maximize your earnings by downloading a Swagbucks toolbar. We have Swagbucks set up as our home page, and we use it to search for everything — even sites for which we know the address. That way, we perform more searches than we normally would. At least twice a month, we earn enough points for an Amazon gift card. Last year, we earned $85 in free Amazon gift cards. We’ve used that money to buy Christmas gifts, books and other things we might not normally find sales or coupons for.
If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet, why not try it? Free. Money.
