Let me say up front – this is not a gimmick, a tricky marketing tool, or some ploy to harvest emails to send you spam. I have personally been a member of the Swagbucks community for over two years and during that time, I have earned HUNDREDS of dollars in Amazon Gift Cards absolutely free. That’s right – hundreds of dollars in gift cards FREE! If you’re currently a Swagbucks member, I would love to know how much you’ve earned since you joined. If you’re not currently a Swagbucks member, read on while I encourage you to join.
Swagbucks is essentially a rewards site. You earn Swagbucks by performing certain activities, filling out surveys, taking polls, completing offers, etc. Honestly, I don’t do any of those things. There are some people who do and they may earn Swag Bucks a lot faster than I do, so it’s completely up to you whether you want to do those things. So how do I earn my Swag Bucks? I use Swagbucks as my search engine. Setting Swagbucks to be your search engine means that for every single search, you have a chance to win Swagbucks.
SwagBucks uses Google as the framework for their search, so I get the same results from Swagbucks as I would from Google, except with the chance to win with every search. It’s not uncommon for me to earn 50 to 100 Swagbucks per day, depending on how much I use the search feature, and I use it for everything. From websites I want to visit to the weather to products, whatever I need to do or want to find on the web, I type into the search bar.
Right now, you can get a $5 Amazon Gift Card for just 450 Swagbucks. If you earn 50-100 Swagbucks per day, that means you could earn a gift card about once a week. That’s $20 in Amazon Gift Cards per month absolutely free, just for doing something you already do! No forms, no tricks, no signing up for offers – just for searching.
To start earning FREE Gift Cards or Cash (because you can redeem your Swagbucks for cash via PayPal) using search, first sign-up for Swagbucks. Make sure you use code JUNETASTIC when you register for a bonus 70 points to get you started.
Then, you’ll want to set-up Swagbucks as your default search engine. To do this, download the Browser Plugin for your browser or download the Swagbucks Toolbar.
Right click on the search bar at the top of the browser and click “Edit search engines.” Then scroll down to where you can add a new search engine and type “Swagbucks.com” in the first two fields. In the third field, paste the following link “http://www.swagbucks.com/?t=w&p=1&q=%s”. Click off and then select “Make Default”.
The plugin only works with IE7 or higher. If you have an older version, first install the Swagbucks Toolbar. Then, click on Tools and then Internet Options. On the General Tab, go down to “Search” and hit the “Settings” button. Selected “Swag Bucks Customized Web Search” and click “Set as default.”
Just install the plugin!
If you’re ambitious or want to find more ways to earn points, there are lots of other ways you can earn – from taking their daily poll or even playing games. Check out the “Earn” tab once you’ve registered to see all of the cool ways you can earn more.
