Swagbucks: Does it Work?

I confess, I’m a late adopter of Swagbucks, but I’m ready to see how this goes.  I’m all signed up and have my 3 swagbucks just for signing up.  I’m even setting a high goal… enough swagbucks to buy a Wii Fit.

I’ve heard that this is very doable, I just need to have persistence.

What is all of this?

Swagbucks.com is a search engine that rewards you for searching with swagbucks.  These are play dollars that are saved up and then redeemed for prizes or giftcards of your choosing.  A few examples:

450 points = $5 Amazon Gift Card

700 points = $5 in Paypal cash

140 points = $5 Red Envelope.com  gift card

These are low prizes, but you can save your swagbucks up for larger prizes too.

How do you earn Swagbucks?

  • Search the web. Use Swagbucks.com (or their toolbar) to do all of your searching from now on.  As you search you will earn/find swagbucks. (I just searched for the very first time after typing this and got another 5 swagbucks!)
  • Shop online using Swagbucks instead of another cash back site.  Get 1 Swagbuck for every $5 you spend.

  • Refer a friends to Swagbucks.
  • Find Swagbuck codes on blogs etc. and enter them for more bucks.

Does it work?

I have heard from many of you that got lots of free things from Amazon over the year so I am thinking the answer is yes. 

I’m going to keep you updated, each week when I post Friday Finals I will also post how many bucks I earned this week.  I hope it will help to keep me accountable  remembering to “swag” everyday!  Want to join in the fun?  Sign up.

So far I have 8 swagbucks just from starting!
