A Very Frugal Christmas!: SWAGBUCKS=FREE Christmas Gifts
How would you like to pay for Christmas gifts with gift cards that you earned for free?
About a year ago, I was introduced to SWAGBUCKS. Basically, it is an online search engine similar to google that rewards you with points (or swagbucks) for various searches. For example, about ten minutes ago I search for "Huggies points 2011" and I received 10 swagbucks for my search. Once you get a good amount of points, say 450, you can exchange them for giftcards, prizes, or even donate to your favorite charity. 450 points will get you a $5 giftcard to amazon.com (my new favorite online store).
Does it work? YES! I have earned at least $50 in Amazon giftcards in the past six months. I have around 880 pts. ready to be redeemed at this time. It takes 7-14 days to receive the gift card or code once it is submitted, so don't expect to have it immediately.
How do you sign up? Simply visit this link and fill out the information. Be careful, there is only one account per household. If you sign up with two and they figure it out, they will cancel your membership. While you are signing up, please enter SBPAYSFORME as a code on the second page of the registration to get an additional 80 for a total of 110 swagbucks right away. This is only good through November 17th.
How do you earn Swagbucks? There are several ways to earn swagbucks. The first and easiest way is use their search engine. Many times I won't get the swagbucks on the first page of results, but as I click to the second or third, my swagbucks will show up. You may also do surveys, play games, watch Swagbucks TV, complete offers, print coupons & use them, and a variety of other tasks to earn Swagbucks. I would suggest downloading the toolbar so you can remember to search using Swagbucks.
You can be guaranteed 5 Swagbucks a day by doing the following:
Click on NOSO and Skip Offers — 2 Swagbucks
Take the Daily Poll — 1 Swagbuck
Login Via the Toolbar — 1 Swagbuck
Click on Trusted Surveys — 1 Swagbuck
In addition, follow Swagbucks on facebook and the Swagbucks blog to keep updated on free codes or contests.
