I'm sure you've heard me mention Swagbucks before, but it's another of my FAVORITE ways to make a little extra money online. And it's super simple too.
Swagbucks is a online search engine that gives you points for searching, trying special offers, using coupons, and doing surveys. It's a lot like MyPoints in that way, but I like it alot better.
To earn, I log in and do a search about 3 times a day...in the morning, afternoon, and evening. I find that's just easiest for me, but you search when you want. I type my search string into the box and off I go. Sometimes I'll get points on the first try, other times I search a few pages back or I need to type a different search string in a few times before I get points. I usually search things I'm looking for anyway, such as a party theme, a product, or a clip art idea.
I also do a few other things if I remember (hey, I'm getting old and have kids too so I don't sit around the computer ALL day.) I'll do the poll of the day or I'll have SwagbucksTV running on my computer while I work on projects. I don't do very much. Once again, I NEVER do the special offers or buy anything, just search.
Swagbucks also has special codes that come out on their blog, facebook page, or twitter stream for extra points. I am WAY to busy to keep track of when these come out since they change every day, so I subscribe to an email list that sends out alerts on the codes. You can find several of these out there and if you want to email me, I can let you know when they are out too!
I ALWAYS use my codes for a $5.00 Amazon gift certificate. It's the cheapest reward and for me, the most useful. I'm saving mine up for Christmas presents. So far this year, I've earned about $20.00 and plan to earn plenty more before the holidays.
This month if you sign up you can play March Madness for even more points too!
March Swagness is all about you earning bonus Swag Bucks while doing all of the things you’re already doing on Swagbucks. Every day thy’ll give you an earning goal, which you’ll find on their homepage. As you earn Swag Bucks throughout the day, that meter will fill up and when it’s full, you’ll have earned your bonus for the day. The bonus will always be 10% of that day’s goal.
Be sure to check in everyday, as the earning goal for any given day could be higher or lower than the day before. Your total bonus amount will continue to accumulate each day, and your bonus amount will be applied at by April 5th – this special promotion runs through April 2nd. If you hit the earning goal every single day of March Swagness, your bonus amount will be doubled!
EVERYTHING you earn on Swagbucks counts towards March Swagness – including (but limited to) Search,Surveys, Tasks, Swag Codes, Special Offers, Referral Bucks, Winning TTPTP, Hashtag and Comment hookups – if you earn it from us, it counts towards the day it was earned!
It's SUPER easy like I said, and a great way to earn some FREE Christmas presents or party supplies.
