Swagbucks 201

Search & Win

Swagbucks is a search engine (like Google, Yahoo, etc) that radomly awards you "Swagbucks" for searching the internet. Just download the FREE toolbar and start earning! Use the Swagbucks toolbar every time you search the internet. The more you search, the more you win. (You get 30 swag bucks just for signing up!) Then after you have accumulated some Swagbucks, cash them in for prizes. They post to your account and are available for use immediately.* You can get anything at the Swag Store HERE. The best deal is a $5 Amazon Gift Card for only 450 Swagbucks. You can accumulate as many gift cards as you like and then use them all at once to "buy" something totally free. I'm saving mine to do some Christmas shopping. Totally effortless--other than deciding what to buy!

Fridays are Mega Swagbucks Friday!
What does that mean?
Higher odds of winning big bills (100, 200, 500, 1000)....
making free FREE-er  : )

Don't forget, you can also print grocery coupons and earn Swagbucks for using them too!

*Swagbucks can be redeemed immediately.
You may purchase 2 "like" gift cards per day.
You may purchase 5 "like" gift cards per month.

If you are planning to cash them in towards a major purchase (i.e. Christmas shopping) at the end of the year, I suggest cashing them in as you earn them. If you cash them in over time (for $5 gift cards, for example) you will get a bigger bang for your buck. If you are limited on time, you may cash them in for a higher dollar gift card, but it will cost you more Swagbucks. 

Here's an example:
If you buy one $25 gift card, it will cost you 3150 Swagbucks. (price as of 1/10/11)

If you buy five $5 gift cards over time, the end result is $25 that cost you 2250 Swagbucks.

With your remaining 900 Swagbucks that you saved, you could actually buy two more $5 gift cards. 3150 Swagbucks cashed in over time, are actually worth $35 in gift cards, instead of $25.
