What Is Swagbucks All About?

Swagbucks.com allows web users to earn virtual currency, called SwagBucks, by doing the things they do every day – searching the web, shopping online at their favourite retailers, and participating in other activities like phone recycling, submitting polls, and completing special offers.

Swagbucks.com claims to be the only place on the web to get what you want without ever having to spend a dime.  It’s like using Great Canadian Rebates, only you don’t have to spend any money to earn rewards.

SwagBucks – How it Works

Members can earn SwagBucks by participating in some of the following activities on SwagBucks.com:

Searching the web – By using the SwagBucks search engine, you’ll win Reward Points periodically as you search.

Watching videos – Find great content and fill your SwagBucks metre as you watch.  Once the metre is full, you’ll earn bonus SwagBucks.

Playing games – SwagBucks games are casual but the rewards are real.  You can play for free, or test your skills in a paid tournament against other users and earn big rewards points.

Taking surveys – Big brands want your opinion and they’re willing to pay you in SwagBucks to get it.  There are high paying survey opportunities every day on SwagBucks.com.

Answering polls – Be heard on the topics you care about.  Every time you vote in the current daily poll, you’ll earn SwagBucks.

Shopping online – The stores you already shop at are offering you reward points for every purchase you make.

Completing limited time special offers – Discover a new product or service and have SwagBucks automatically added to your account. There’s no limit to how many offers you can complete.

Recycling phones, books and games – By clearing out the space in your closets you can add SwagBucks to your virtual wallet.  Their recycling programs make it easy to be green, while earning green.

Inviting your friends – When you refer a new user to SwagBucks.com, you’re eligible to earn matching SwagBucks every time they win by searching the web.  Earn up to 1,000 SwagBucks per referral.

How To Use SwagBucks Properly

Use SwagBucks.com any time you need to search the web.  You can download the SwagBucks toolbar for instant access.  Search on SwagBucks.com exactly how you would on any other search engine, and utilize the image, web, news and comparison shopping feeds.  Don’t search the web or click on links that you aren’t interested in just to win SwagBucks.

To promote SwagBucks, send email invitations to your friends, family and associates using the “invite a friend” link.  Check SwagBucks.com, as well as their Facebook and Twitter accounts regularly for codes and promotions, and click the Share button every time you win SwagBucks.

Final Thoughts

I like the concept of SwagBucks.  It’s a simple way to earn rewards on the web by doing things you would normally do every day.  I don’t mind taking a few minutes to respond to a survey or answer a poll about something I’m interested in.  If I can earn a few SwagBucks for my time, that’s even better.

You can even redeem points for small items, like a music single for 199 SwagBucks, or a $5 Amazon gift card for 450 SwagBucks.
