You have probably noticed that I’ve been posting here and there about upcoming Swagbucks events and special deals. But why? Is it not some sort of internet scam, a waste of time? Why do I keep posting about Swagbucks? Well, there are a few reasons!
I can’t even remember exactly where or when I found out about Swagbucks…probably on someone else’s blog a few years ago. I was hesitant at first but decided to try it. I’m glad I did!
Basically, you earn points called SB for doing a variety of tasks online. Some take only a few seconds, such as the daily poll. Many are tasks that you would do anyway, you just perform them through Swagbucks links, such as searching on browsers or playing games. You can take advantage of special deals, you can earn a percentage of what you spend making online purchases back in SB points, you can watch video clips, take surveys, and more. There are daily Swag codes that give you anywhere from 2 to sometimes 6 or 8 points simply for submitting the code. Every now and again there are Swag codes extravaganzas in which they release multiple codes in a day.
After you’ve earned some SB points, you can redeem them for gift cards or a Paypal deposit. I usually redeem my points for Amazon gift cards which I then use for homeschooling books and supplies or household items.
I really don’t spend that much time doing Swagbucks tasks..I usually just submit codes as they come out, search what I normally would using their widget, do the daily poll, and use their Shop and Earn program when possible for online purchases. I’ve also become a Swagbucks influencer, which helps me earn SB for spreading the word about upcoming events. Over time I’ve earned over a few hundred dollars worth of gift cards. This isn’t a scam, I can tell you that for sure! This has been a great help for our homeschool budget.
So if you haven’t tried Swagbucks out yet, I encourage you to sign up and try it! It’s been a blessing for our family and for many others.
