Swagbucks: Earn gift cards for searching online

by Angela Davis on February 25, 2010

Search & Win

Our longtime readers know how much I love Swagbucks, a search engine powered by Google and Ask.com that gives away free stuff just for searching the internet.

The thing that makes it unique is that every so often you win 10, 20 or 50 “Swagbucks” when you search the internet. You accumulate these Swagbucks and redeem them for gift cards or other exclusive products. For instance, you can redeem 450 swagbucks and get a $5 Amazon gift card (there are tons of other prizes, including Paypal cash and Starbucks gift cards). And there’s virtually no work involved. I just installed the Swagbucks toolbar from the website. Super easy. And if I don’t get the result I want by searching with Swagbucks, I just do a quick Google search. I have to use Google every 10 searches or so. With normal searching, you can earn a free gift card in a month or two.

But this is where it gets fun. If you refer others to Swagbucks, you earn Swagbucks when they win too — up to 1000 per referral. Swagbucks is the perfect way to earn some money for the things you need (or just want!). I was able to buy all my kids 2009 Christmas gifts using Amazon gift cards earned with Swagbucks (plus some gifts for me, too!).

So, what are you waiting for? Start the free stuff rolling! Go to Swagbucks and start searching!

I LOVE swagbucks! I have gotten over $200 in Amazon gift cards just by searching and doing the special offers. It’s amazing!

Like, Kate, above, I lost my Swag Bucks toolbar, when I downloaded Google toolbar. How can I download the Swag Bucks toolbar again, without losing my cumulative Swag Bucks already earned?

I think if you go to the swagbucks home page you can find a way to install the tool bar. I had to do that previously and it seemed pretty easy.
