If you can spend 10-15 minutes a day on Facebook each day you have plenty of time to be using Swagbucks to earn giftcards.

Swagbucks is absolutely one of my favorite places to earn “free” gift cards. In the video above I show you exactly how you can earn those giftcards each month only spending a few minutes a day online. According to the most recent numbers the average person spends 7 or 8 hours a month on Facebook and mobile phone users .. your worse.. on average you check Facebook 14 times a day. Wow, that’s a lot of time! If you can spare about 5 mins out of that part of your day you can earn giftcards.
So what is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a free and easy to use website that started out as what might have been called an incentive program” for people who used their search engine instead of Google or Yahoo. It has expanded into so much more than that.
I know many people who use Swagbucks throughout the year and use those giftcards as their Christmas budget. Regardless of what you use them for who wouldn’t like some extra gift cards laying around?
Now, there are many sites out there that offer incentive programs like this but this is why I like Swagbucks in particular and why it’s something I am sharing it.
- It doesn’t take a lot of time each day.
- It doesn’t take too long for the most basic user to earn Swagbucks to be traded for giftcards.
- It’s soooo easy to use.
So before we get into how you can earn these “Swagbucks” I’m talking about let me tell you what you can actually get. You accumulate Swagbucks into your account over time. You can trade these in at any time for a variety of things. Discounts at places in your area or nationally but my favorite is the giftcards.
There are so many different giftcards available to trade for but they must have a special deal with Amazon. Normally you need 500 Swagbucks for a $5 gift certificate to the store you would like but for a $5 Amazon giftcard you only need 450 Swagbucks. So every time I hit the 450 mark I redeem my Swagbucks for a $5 gift card. They are added to your account and you can use them right away or you can even combine them overtime if you want to save for a larger purchase.
Of course Amazon is not their only retailer but you do get the biggest reward for your time using them. I have a friend who uses Swagbucks to pay for her Kindle books by earning Amazon giftcards. Amazon is just such a large marketplace you can grab pretty much anything there. Heck they even have food now!
The next question you might be wondering is…
How do I earn Swagbucks?
These are the ways I like to use. There are many different methods you can use but these are very fast and accumuclate quite well. I do these three simple tasks everyday.
See the video above for a walk through of preforming these tasks. -> Swagbucks Review
1) Preform a search using the Swagbucks toolbar
There is a toolbar you can install right into your browser and it’s compatible with most all browsers. You go to the toolbar and preform one or two searches each day. After you complete your search you will get a message that you earned Swagbucks and how many. Tip – there is a captcha to fill out so that no one tries to cheat the system.
Now on this. I DO prefer Google over the Swagbucks search engine so I only use this for the rewards. You may find you like this one just as well but you don’t need to use the search engine all the time to get rewards. Just go in once a day.
2) Swagbucks Daily Poll
This is a question submitted by Swagbucks members and it’s really just a random poll. This part takes less than 30 seconds.
3) Watch a video – After you have answered the poll a window will pop up letting you know that you have earned Swagbucks and to earn more click to watch a video. I do that and it requres another minute or so.
4) NOSO (No Obligation Special Offer) – See the video above – You go through a few offers most of them being email mailing lists to sign up for. If one interests you then go ahead and sign up for it, if not.. not worries just hit skip all the way through. After clicking through a few screens you will get MORE Swagbucks.
Doing these basic tasks each day allows me to earn easily. Sometimes if I have extra time or am just bored (that’s not often) they have an app you can download after you have set up your account called Swagbucks TV. You can preview some movie trailers or other videos for even more rewards.
Then there are other things you can do each day to accumulate points faster. One example of that is using Swagbucks codes. All you need to do is check your email and you may get Swagbucks codes (this is random). You can input these codes and get some extra points!
If you have a few extra minutes some days there are other things you can do to increase your Swagbucks and they often have some great shopping deals that you earn Swagbucks for available too. Sometimes one will jump out because it’s something I need and I will take advantage of it.
I am able to earn hundreds of dollars in giftcards throughout the year using Swagbucks. Another extra which I don’t do everyday but you can if you want is keep an eye on your email also for a daily email with a video or survey that is worth alot of points. All of these are optional. You can earn and use this site and your own pace.
I will say from experience though once you have those gift cards coming in consistently you realize it’s worth 5 or 10 mintues a day.
So go get started, you still have time to earn some Swagbucks before Christmas shopping!
