Earn FREE gift cards!

Get gift cards for FREE for doing things as simple as an internet search!

Have you heard of Swagbucks?  It is an online rewards program where you earn points (Swagbucks) for your online activity.  This includes internet searches, online purchases, watching short videos, playing online games, and more!

In our first six months of using Swagbucks, we earned $320 in gift cards!

Here are some of the best ways we've found to earn easy Swagbucks every day:

One of the quickest ways that we've found to earn Swagbucks is to download the toolbar and use that as our search engine instead of using Google or Bing. Even when going to Facebook or somewhere like that, instead of typing in the URL, we just search for it in the toolbar and then click on the link. Those extra few seconds it takes means we earn at least 30 Swagbucks per day just by searching!
If you want, you can always uninstall the toolbar but leave the automatic search engine to be Swagbucks so when you search in the URL box, Swagbucks is the automatic search. You still get the points!

There is an app you can download call Swagbucks TV. Every 5 videos you play, you get 2 SB (up to 10 SB daily). We just turn it on, turn down the volume, and just let it run. Most of the time it just runs through the videos as if on a playlist. Everyone once in a while it hiccups and needs to just be re-opened to get to playing again. We just turn the volume off and let it run while showering, playing with the baby, or even sleeping.

To the left of the screen on the home page for Swagbucks is a list of "Dailies" for you to complete each day.  As you do those, you get closer to reaching your daily goal.  There are two different daily goals: a low-value goal and a high-value goal.  If you reach them, you usually get 10% bonus at the end of the month of those goals.  For example, today our low-value goal is to earn 30 SB.  If you can do that, you will get a bonus 3 SB at the beginning of the next month.  There are also long-term goals (get an extra 25 SB if you meet your low-value goal for 7 days in a row, for example).

There are also random 1 SB and 2 SB videos you can watch that they list on the main page.

Also, anytime you buy something from an online store, when you search for it a link may appear saying how many SB per dollar you can earn when you shop at that place. You have to click on that link to get to that website in order to get the points.

Overall, these tend to add up quickly!  For purchasing gift cards with your SB, it is usually 100 SB per $1 of gift card value.  Each SB is a penny, basically.  The only difference is for Amazon gift cards, where a $25 gc costs just 2200 SB instead of 2500 SB.

We like to save up our points and then cash them out about the beginning of November to use for our Black Friday and Christmas shopping.  We usually have several hundred dollars' worth of gift cards by that time!

Swagbucks is free to sign up.  If you sign up using our referral link here, when you earn your first 300 SB you will get an EXTRA 300 SB!  Then when you do your first online purchase of $25 or more, you'll not only earn those SB but also get an EXTRA 200 SB!  So sign up now and start earning!
