Yesterday in my daybook post I mentioned that I am excited to have recently earned $50 in Amazon gift cards through Swagbucks and Superpoints. I used these earnings to buy a some craft supplies for the kids and seeds for garden.
I thought I would explain a little more about each program because they have been a real benefit to me and maybe you would have use for them as well.
I've been with Swagbucks quite a while and love this program. Swagbucks allows users to earn "bucks" through using the Swagbucks search engine. This search engine works very much like google and the results are usually very good. Occasionally I will switch to google if I'm not finding what I want through the Swagbucks search engine but it is very rare. Using the search engine is the main way I earn Swagbucks. Occasionally I will watch Swagbucks TV or do a survey but that is pretty rare. Earned Swagbucks can be used to redeem a variety of prizes from gift cards to books to electronics. My favorite prize is the $5 Amazon card for 450 swagbucks. I can usually earn two of these each month without a problem. In 2011 I earned nineteen $5 Amazon gift cards and one $25 Amazon gift card. I also donated some swagbucks to charity last year. So far this year I have redeemed five $5 Amazon gift cards and just this morning reached enough points to redeem the sixth one for this year.
Swagbucks also offers a referral program but since I really haven't made much effort with that option I haven't earned anything through referrals yet. I like to know that a program works well and is trustworthy before I share it with others. Swagbucks has definitely passed the test.
If you're interested in earning a little extra throught Swagbucks feel free to check them out by clicking on one of the Swagbucks logos in this post. It is completely free and easy to sign up for and it's so much fun to watch those Swagbucks add up.
Sometime in the next few days I will also be sharing how I earned a $25 Amazon gift card through Superpoints.
