I started using Swagbucks for searching back in December 2008, and I’ve been thrilled with the results. The toolbar is my favorite part! I use it every single time I do a search online, and I also use it to cut and paste web addresses that I would otherwise type into my nav bar. This gets me Swagbucks all the time, and those little bucks add up!
There are tons of other ways to earn Swagbucks. Here are the ones that work best for me:
- Keep an eye on Twitter, their Facebook page, and their blog for SwagCodes. Usually, I hear about one of these via Twitter or it pops up on my FB page, then I can head to the right place to find it.
- When you install the toolbar, you’ll get messages with SwagCodes, and I often get a Swagbuck just for hitting “Refresh Toolbar” to see my current amount.
- Referrals help you earn Swagbucks faster. Ask your friends and family to sign up under you, and you’ll earn their first 1000 Swagbucks alongside them! Right now, you only earn when they earn via searches, but for the first three months of 2011, you’ll be able to earn from all these other methods I’m mentioning.
- I take the Daily Poll at the Swagbucks website each day for a quick Swagbuck.
- I take a look at the Trusted Surveys (you get a Swagbuck just for visiting the page), and if I have time, I take a survey or two.
- Every Friday is Mega Swagbucks Day, where more Swagbucks in higher denominations are given out. I try to schedule my computer research time for Fridays, and that helps me earn more bucks.
If you’re not currently using Swagbucks, I hope you’ll give it a try! When you sign up before
December 31st and use code JoinIn2010 (case sensitive), you’ll earn an extra 30 Swagbucks, so you’ll start off with 60 right away! That code is expired.
As you earn more and more, take a look at the Swag Store to see what you want to redeem your bucks for–I recommend the $5 Amazon Gift Card. At 450 Swagbucks, it’s a great ratio of Swagbucks to “real” money, and there’s always something to buy at Amazon!
Disclosure: If you sign up for Swagbucks under my referral link, I’ll earn Swagbucks along with you, up to the first 1000. I use my Swagbucks to buy giveaway prizes and also to buy products for my family. Thank you for supporting MoneywiseMoms!
