  • ::Here’s How I Make a Few Extra Dollars For Holiday Gifts and Splurges:
  • Most of my kitchen gadgets have been free or nearly free because of Swagbucks. I have a Keurig coffee pot, a Breville juicer and am saving for a Vitamix blender. I would not have purchased any of these out of pocket, but by using Swagbucks for my internet searches, I can “splurge” on very nice items that the whole family can enjoy!
  • I also redeem my Swagbucks for gift cards for holiday spending.

Using Swagbucks is easy and it is free. If you don’t mind spending a few minutes just doing your regular Internet searching. I love Swagbucks and it has been a great way to “save up” for something extra without being out of pocket.

Once you log in, you can start earning free gift cards to Amazon.comJC PenneyLowe’sBarnes & NobleTarget, Starbucks and more. You will see that the gift cards are the best point value for your free Swagbucks.
