i'm being completely sincere when i say, if you don't use swagbucks yet, you're crazy.
what is it?
swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you with points on a random basis for simply searching through their site instead of using say, google.
it's a simple idea without a lot of gimmicks. i'm under the impression that their partnership with amazon.com makes the idea the huge success that it is.
how does it work for me?
here's how i use swagbucks:
every morning when i pull up my computer, i have a system.
i go to swagbucks.com
i earn 1 swagbuck for having the toolbar on my browser
i earn 1 swagbuck for answering the daily poll
and i earn 2 swagbucks for completing the NOSO (no obligation special offers)
then throughout the day, i use swagbucks as my search engine instead of google.
say i'm just dying to know how demi and ashton are doing. instead of using google to search for these arbitrary facts, i use swagbucks. on a random basis i'm rewarded 7 or more "swagbucks" once per day.
using this process i earn between 11-15 swagbucks per day.
i also use their great referral system [which i'm doing right now] and read their blog which often has hidden codes.
how do i make the most of this?
the amazon.com giftcards are hands down the best bang for your buck when it comes to swagbucks. one $5 giftcard "costs" 450 swagbucks. using my system above, i can earn about 1 giftcard per month. and who can't find something to buy on amazon?
where's the proof?
since march of 2009, i've earned $90 in amazon.com giftcards for spending about 10 seconds a day on swagbucks. roughly, that's about two and a half hours of time total since i started. i think it's worth it!
