SwagBucks: Would YOU like rewards for regular internet searches?

SwagBucks is a search engine that rewards you with "Swag Bucks" for searching the internet. After 9 months, I've turned my Swag Bucks into well over $150 to spend at Amazon. Not a bad wage for my normal daily internet searches! :)

In case you're interested, I used the first $45 of Amazon e-gift cards to buy a great new Wireless Laser Printer (only $54 after my e-cards, less than what it costs us to refill our color ink-jet printer). Not only is having the wireless printing capability terribly convenient, but we're no longer spending money on ink to print coupons!

My husband then used our SwagBucks earnings to surprise me with a wonderful birthday gift! And the rest have been used to stretch our Christmas budget even further!

The Swag Bucks search engine is powered by Google and Ask, so your search results don't suffer in quality. It does not matter WHAT you search for (I've earned Swag Bucks just for typing in the names of websites I visit daily, including my own email account and website!) or how often (you won't earn extra for sitting at your computer and searching all day).

You earn Swag Bucks randomly just for searching the internet, anywhere from 1-5 Swag Bucks per reward or more (an average of 1 to 3 Bucks per day). Just 45 Swag Bucks will buy you a $5 Amazon e-Gift Card (which can be saved and combined for a larger order). Gift Cards are also available for Target, Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, iTunes, along with actual prizes as well. Just 70 SwagBucks can be redeemed for $5 in cash to your PayPal account. You can see how these will add up quickly - regular daily searching will total at least 7-20 SB per week, and around 40 per month!

The Swag Bucks website is user-friendly. You simply sign up, click on a link in your email, and you're on your way! For the easiest use, I highly recommend downloading the Swag Bucks toolbar so that it's always there when you need it. I've found that when I had to visit the SB website repeatedly to search, I didn't use it; yet when it stays at the top of my screen, I rarely forget!

As if that weren't enough, you can also find SwagBucks codes hidden on their website, blog and Facebook page (if you frequent those areas) once every day or two. Other websites, like Engineer a Debt Free Life, post when codes are available (but you have to find them yourself).

Refer your friends and you'll earn every Swag Buck they do, up to their first 100!

I was admittedly a little skeptical about this idea at first, thinking that it sounded almost too easy. It's been recommended by other blogs I trust, so I finally tried it for myself. By just switching the search engine I use, I'm earning towards an e-gift cards to spend as I choose. FREE spending money! The very best part? I'm not spending any extra time doing it!

Interested in trying it for yourself? What do you have to lose?! Click HERE to learn more.
You'll earn 3 Swag Bucks just for registering through my link (and I'll benefit from it as well)! There's also a banner on the left sidebar of the blog where you can register any time.

Have you had success with Swag Bucks? Please comment and let us know!


  1. I redeemed my first Amazon gift card the other day... anything that earns me free books is GREAT! :-)

  2. I would definately recommend this as well...I started using the swag browser in April and was able to redeem for 15 amazon codes (read that as $75 worth of product on and 6 $25 gift cards to, does it get better than all that free stuff for doing my normal browsing? Thanks for the tip, I wouldn't have tried it w/o your recommendation!
