For those of you new to Saving Cent by Cent, I highly recommend signing up for Swagbucks because you can regularly earn FREE gift cards from using it! And when you sign up with Swagbucks by September 30, 2013, use the code GetGiftCards to start off your account with 50 Bonus Swagbucks!
Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you with Swagbucks or “digital dollars” periodically when you do searches. Instead of using Google or Yahoo, use the Swagbucks search engine and you’ll randomly get rewarded points called Swagbucks. Once you earn enough points, they can be redeemed for free gift cards, electronics, apparel, household goods and much more. I’ve been using Swagbucks for years, and my favorite item to redeem is the $5 Amazon Gift Card!
And if you start now, you can save up your Swagbucks to pay for some Christmas gifts this year. There are many people who use Swagbucks to earn gift cards for Christmas. Plus, it’s really nice to have that extra money to help out around Christmas time.
Below are some tips to help you start earning Swagbucks:
Swagbucks Home Page – Set Swagbucks as your home page, so that every morning when you turn on your computer or begin using your smartphone, you’ll be reminded to use the Swagbucks search engine.
Widget – I have a Swagbucks Widget at the very bottom of my Saving Cent By Cent blog. Whenever you get on the Internet, click the “Swag Codes” button on the Widget to see if there are extra points you can earn. They don’t tell you when they will post a code and the code usually is only good for about an hour, so you have to check regularly.
Daily Polls – You can earn a point each day by taking their daily poll.
NOSO (No Obligation Special Offers) – Click on the NOSO tab on the Swagbucks home page, skip through the five to seven offers listed, and you will receive points at the end.
Surveys – Try to qualify for surveys and earn even more points.
Swagbucks TV or Articles – Watch a certain number of Swagbucks TV segments or read certain articles and you’ll receive points once the Swag Bucks Meter is filled up.
