Swagbucks is one of the best ways to earn some extra money online without spending a lot of time. It’s a free simple site that will help you stretch your budget a little further.
A couple of months ago I started using a site called Swagbucks. It works like this… you exchange a few minutes of your time to do a few tasks each day and you are rewarded what are called “Swagbucks“. They are basically a digital currency or points that you accumulate and can trade in for a variety of things.
Here are some examples :
* Valuable Coupons
* Local Deals
and best of all GIFT CARDS!! (The Amazon Gift card is the best deal)
It’s a great way to put a little cushion in your Christmas budget and it doesn’t take that long to accumulate them either!!
Here’s how I use Swagbucks to earn extra $$ ..
1) I Answer The Swag Bucks Daily Poll.
2) I Watch A Video
3) I Do A Few Searches With The Swagbucks Toolbar
If I have a few mins I may watch a couple of extra movie trailers or some entertainment news on their site and get some more free Swagbucks. By far the best way to earn Swagbucks is by using their search engine. It’s so easy to use because now you can actually just add it as an extension on your browser. In fact right now you are awarded 5 bucks just for trying out the Swagbucks toolbar on Google Chrome. Pretty cool!!
While I do prefer Google I still make sure I use it a couple of times a day and randomly you are rewarded Swagbucks. (see below) Swagbucks now offers an app for Android and Iphone users so if your stuck in a waiting room it’s a great time to pull it out, watch a few of their videos and earn some more Swagbucks!! I have found this is such a great way to save up for Christmas. I literally am just trading a few minutes a day and have just made it part of my routine.
Every single Friday is also known as Mega Swagbucks day. This is where you can earn even more Swagbucks just by searching the way your normally do. I have found one easy way to do it is instead of maybe typing in a site like Facebook I will just search Facebook login and there ya go, I earned a few Swagbucks. Now you do not earn on every single search, it is random on how they are rewarded but it is definitely worth it!
It’s a cool little site and I will follow up with a post with some other great ways to earn. I have found many of these kinds of sites just fill your inbox with junk and that hasn’t been the case with Swagbucks. It’s actually very easy to handle and doesn’t take a lot of time to start to earn. While you can trade in your points for TONS of different gift card types I love having a little cushion in my Amazon and Paypal accounts!
So if you are looking for a way to help out with Christmas go check out Swagbucks and you can start earning today… especially since it’s FRIDAY!! Why not start on a Mega day :).
