Need to check out SwagBucks

Ok, towards the end of last year I found a site called Swagbucks ( while I was reading an article on The Penny Hoarder site (  I have to say, it has been an interesting site and I really enjoy it.  The basic premise of Swagbucks is that you can do different actions to earn Swagbucks which can later be redeemed for gift cards or other things.  Every 100 points is equivalent to $1.  There are surveys you can take (which usually pay the most points but sometimes its a bit difficult to qualify for them), watch videos, discover new content, play games, and shop.  With the play games or shop version, you have to spend money and you will be rewarded with Swaybacks later.  For example, if you were to shop online at you would get 5   Swagbucks for every dollar spent (not including shipping or taxes).  There are quite a few places that you can shop online and do this but the MOST important thing about the shopping is that you must first go to the Swagbucks site, then pick the store to shop at.  That way, you get credited for your purchase.  I do a lot of online shopping so this is great for me.  The watching videos is also great for me because I can just turn it on and go do something else.  Every now and then you have to check it to make sure it is still playing (and it will ask you if you are still watching) but that takes like a second and a half.  This is one of the ways I am saving up towards Christmas this year.  It’s slow and unless you do it all day everyday, your not going to make a fortune.  Just make sure to sign up for their Facebook posts because most days they will post a Swagbucks code on their Facebook page and you enter that code on their website or mobile app and you can get between 2-6 Swagbucks just for that.  Check it out, it’s pretty interesting.
