If you haven’t heard of Swagbucks, let me fill you in. Swagbucks is an all-in-one rewards program. You earn points for doing things online, including things you are probably already doing. For example, internet searches, online shopping, and watching videos. You can also earn points printing coupons, participating in surveys and polls, and taking advantage of other special offers.
When I first signed up for Swagbucks years ago, I was disappointed by the search engine. I was turned off by how inferior it was to Google. I did enough searches to earn a couple Amazon gift cards, but I didn’t stick with it.
After continually hearing great reviews from Swagbucks users, I decided to give it another shot. In the past year, I have started using Swagbucks again, and have been happy to find that the the search engine is much improved. Searching the internet, printing coupons, and taking the daily poll are the main activities I do. Many people rack up lots of points watching the videos (commercials, movie trailers, etc), but because our bandwidth is limited, I don’t watch the videos.
Rewards are pretty straight-forward. You get the most bang for your buck (err.. point) with the $5 Amazon gift card which is always priced at 450 points. They sometimes have “sales” on other rewards that make them equal in value to the $5 Amazon card.
