I originally wasn’t planning on blogging about Swagbucks, but after today, figured it wouldn’t hurt.
Swagbucks is an online search engine where you can win points (called Swagbucks) every few searches. You can then redeem those bucks for prizes.
One of the prizes that I particularly like is a $5 gift card to Amazon.com. Right now you can get the card for only 45 points. I thought it would take a while to get those 45 points, but surprisingly, it’s only taken me a week.
They also award MegaBucks periodically too. One day, instead of seeing the usual “You have 1 new SwagBuck!” message, I got a message saying I’d gotten 20. Nice.
It took me a long time to even register because I wasn’t convinced it was worth the effort. Now though, it seems worth it. Swagbucks even has an add-on for Firefox that allows you to add a search bar to your browser window (they have it for other browsers too – I’m just a loyal Firefox fan) to make it easier.
They also have a referral program where you can get points when people sign up using your referral link.
The only thing I had to do differently was switch search engines to Swagbucks. Easy enough.
So go over, take a look, and maybe even sign up. You might find it was worth your time.
