Swagbucks = Earn Amazon Cards

I’ve talked many times about my favorite search engine, but there’s still a lot of you who haven’t quite ‘got it’ yet. So here it is again……. Introduction to Swagbucks.

If you are on the internet and use Google you could make one little tweak and be earning swagbucks which you convert to Amazon.com gift cards or paypal money.

Thanks to Swagbucks we were able to buy paint supplies, a shower head, Christmas presents without it costing us a penny! The possibilities are endless.

So, if you are already a swagbucks fan, you can skip this entry (or better yet, forward this link to your friend, cousin, sister or post the link to this article on your facebook page so you can get people to sign up and help you make even more money).

Here’s a step by step guide to starting swagbucks:

  1. Go here and fill in your name, address and email information. (There is a blank that says ‘swagcode’ – just skip that space.
  2. The next screen will ask you if you want to download the toolbar. You do not have to do that; you can just skip it if you want. I downloaded the toolbar about a year ago and have had no problem with it at all (and I am one of those people who doesn’t download stuff easily). It does make it easier to remember to use swagbucks but you really don’t need it.
  3. You will have the option of whether you want to make swagbucks your home page. Again, that’s your choice. I chose no and left my home page as google.

You’re done! You will see in the top right corner of your swagbucks page your name and how many swagbucks you have (you will probably start with 30). Now it’s time to start earning more bucks.

Every time you search the internet, start at the toolbar or from the swagbucks home page. I even ‘search’ for google, hotmail or my blog. After about 3 or 5 searches, a new screen will pop up saying "congratulations, you just won a swagbuck’. You will need to be logged in  to ‘claim your buck’.

Now you can go back to your regular search engine if you want (google or yahoo etc).

The best reward is for a $5.00 Amazon gift card. Read here to find out what you can buy at amazon.com with $5.00! It takes 450 bucks to get a Amazon gift card. So you’re on your way to free stuff. (You CAN stack these amazon cards!!! We usually save them till we have at least $25 in gift cards then we get free shipping too!
