What on Earth are Swagbucks?
Yes, it’s “Mega SwagBucks Friday” but what on earth does that mean? It’s like oversized dollar bills should be falling from the sky- and I peeked outside. The only bills are the ones in my mailbox.
My rule here on TCC.com is if it sounds too good to be true, then it is and I’m not posting it. So know that while Swagbucks sounds too good to be true, they really are real and beneficial.
Here’s how I use Swagbucks:
Swagbucks is an online rewards program that you earn points for random online activities. The most common is searching, you know, like searching for a recipe or looking for a local restaurant’s hours on the web. Most of us use Google- but Google doesn’t reward us and Swagbucks is backed by Google. Same results + you earn money!
After accumulating Swagbucks overtime, you can redeem them in the SwagStore for Gift Cards from retailers like Amazon, Target, Starbucks, CVS, and more. I recommend downloading the Toolbar because you earn 1 Swagbuck each day just for opening your browser. BTW- new accounts earn 30 SwagBucks just for registering.
Steps for Downloading the Toolbar:
- Open your Swagbucks account.
- Click “Toolbars” on the left side.
- Click “DOWNLOAD”
- Select whether or not you want Swagbucks as your default browser.
- Your toolbar will appear at the top of your screen.
- Start searching & earning!
I was hesitant at first, but last year alone I had about $80 in Amazon Gift Cards racked up from Swagbucks points at Christmas time. With all the great deals on Amazon, I was able to score 5 or 6 gifts for that $80 at no cost to me. It’s like a “Way to Save” account and if you let it pile up, you’ll be prepared for the holidays!
