What do you do with Swagbucks ? is a question I was recently asked. Get free Amazon gift cards, $5 at a time was my reply.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the choices at Swagbucks . I recomend starting slowly and decide how much time you want to spend earning the free gift cards. The Amazon.com gift cards are one of the best values for your free bucks and they make great gifts.
You can join for free and give the site a try. If you use the registration code AUGUSTBONUS when you sign up, you will get an additional 50 free Swagbucks on top of the 30 Swagbucks that new users get. The 50 bonus is valid through Friday, August 12th.
If you are not familiar with Swagbucks , here is how to get started: Swagbucks has a search bar where you type in your searches just as if you were searching at Google or Ask.com. The answers you get, come from these two search engines. To reward you for taking this extra step, you get free points called Swagbucks.
One of the ways to redeem your Swagbucks is by getting free gift cards at retailers like JCPenney, Lowe’s, Barnes & Noble, Target, and Amazon.com. You can really get into this site and spend a lot of time on it – or you can just do a couple searches and earn some free gift cards.
There are all kinds of special offers, coupons for groceries to print, surveys, games, trade-ins, tasks, and shopping. You can even buy Groupons, Living Social and other daily deal offers here and get Swagbucks plus the daily deal.
If you want to just give it a try- just set up a free account and do a few searches on anything like “iPod” and “tomatoes”. You don’t have to get into the sites or read anything or stay on them, you just need to do the searches to win the Swagbucks. Generally, you are awarded your free Swagbucks after your second or third search, so if you try it, make sure search until you see the free Swagbucks. They are awarded and credited to your account automatically.
Swagbucks does not ask you for any personal information to set up an account, they do not require a credit card and I have not gotten any spam or unwanted emails as a result of using Swagbucks. Always make sure that you are logged in to your account before you start so you get the proper credit.
Don’t forget, through August 12th, you will get an extra 50 Swagbucks when you create a new account when you use code AUGUSTBONUS along with the usual 30 free Swagbucks for new users, for a total of 80 Swagbucks.
Sign up here at Swagbucks and see if you like this site. If you enjoy playing games on Facebook, you should really give it a try and earn gift cards for your time.
