I'm loving Swagbucks!

So, for those of you who haven't heard of Swagbucks, I highly recommend you check it out. It's a search engine that you can load on your computer and it gives you points for searching with them. You also get points for other stuff too, like daily polls and trivia. So far I've redeemed my points for gift certificates on Amazon. With those gift certificates, I've been able to buy gifts for family members. Most recently I bought my parents a new CD that's out for their upcoming birthdays (kinda a "joint gift") and I've entered my other Swagbuck points into a drawing for 2 tickets to see this artist play live. This is a gift my parents are going to love! All at no cost to me :)

Swagbucks is free to join and use. It's simple and fun. If you'd like to join, you can click here and I actually get a referral bonus. If not, no biggie. It's just a cool site that I recommend you check out.

Question : Do you already use Swagbucks? What are some of the items you've received? Do you know of other programs that are easy to use and give points so freely?


  1. I love SwagBucks! I have been able to get the max in Amazon Gift Cards for the last three months. I am saving them up for Christmas Presents! Totally Love SwagBucks!

  2. Just starting to get to know my way around their website. Hopefully I can rack up some points - my goal would be for gift-giving also. Good luck!

  3. I love Swagbucks too. I used it for Amazon gift cards for about a year, and mostly bought gifts with it. Then I decided to try to save up for some Southwest gift cards so I can eventually go on a trip. It's taking longer obviously, but it gives me something bigger to plan for without taking away from my other financial goals right now. :)

  4. I love Swagbucks as well. I use it for the Paypal cards! It costs more points than Amazon giftcards-but getting 10 dollars put into my bank account is so exciting! Thanks for checking out my blog and thanks for the encouragement!

  5. I like swagbucks - I always get the $5 amazon e-giftcard and like how I can use it to buy used stuff as well on their website. I'm not obsessive with it - I try to do the daily poll each day (not always successful) and any internet searches I do I use swagbucks.

    mypoints is another site I've used but not nearly as much and that was mostly for shopping _ I still go through them for though but for shopping I use either my discovercard account or
