Earn Free Amazon Gift Cards ~ Easy, Fun, and Free!!

How would you like to earn points, by doing what you already do, that convert over to Gift Cards to buy whatever you want?

Not sure I would hear a, “NO” from anyone to that question! “smile”
I was first introduced to Swag Bucks from a co-blogger that told me she was able to do all of her Christmas shopping using Amazon Gift cards she earned from Swag Bucks! I had come to really respect this blogger, so I took her word at face-value and joined Swag Bucks.
Back when I joined, all there was to earn points was to do your “Natural Searches” on the internet and earn points.  Now, they have many ways to earn points.  However, let’s talk about “Natural Searches” for a minute. The best way to earn points 1-2 times a day is to use, “The Swag Bucks Search Engine” to do your “Natural Searches” you would normally do by using any other search engine such as, “google”.
TIPS On Natural Searches:
  • Your searches do not have to be any thing special or unique in nature. You could search the same 3-5 sites every day and “STILL” earn Swag Bucks.
  • I suggest the first thing you do every day when you get on the computer is use “Swag Bucks“,  for your first – fifth search of the day.  You will more often then not, if not every time, earn points on these first searches of the day. *Remember they do not have to be unique every day.
  • NOW, that said, once you earn your first set of points, “STOP” using the search engine. Don’t keep trying to earn more points after you already earned some.  You will be wasting your time – instead go back later in the afternoon or early evening and do another series of 1-5 searches, and once again, more then likely you will earn your second set of points for the day. *I usually only earn 1-2 times a day. I’m not saying to not use the search engine- just don’t keep trying to win.  I usually use Google after my first set of points earned, and go back later.
  • The key to earning a lot of points by your natural searches is that.  You be natural with your search, and be consistent, and do it EVERY DAY.  If you are just doing it once in awhile, it will take a long time.  It takes minutes out of your day – for great rewards.
Once you sign up for Swag Bucks HERE, the first thing you need to do is download the “Tool Bar“.  It is simple and easy to do.  From Swag bucks home page select from the top menu “Tool Bar” and follow the simple directions.  It will automatically install a search tool bar on the top of your computer in seconds.

From the Tool Bar you will be able to:
Special Offers:
You can also earn Swag Bucks by taking advantage of their regular featured “Special Offers”.  Just go to their, “Special Offers” page HERE to do either of the following.
Shop & Earn
You can also earn 2 Swag Bucks for every $1 you spend in the, “Shop & Earn Store”.  A lot of the places you can earn points from are stores you would normally shop at any way.  You are just shopping on-line through Swag Bucks to earn *2 Swag Bucks for every $1 you spend.

It was very helpful. Without a blog though, I can't use the Swidget. I have yet to enter any swagcodes though. Thank you.

Not sure how this works in browsers besides Firefox, but if you'll right click any link and select open in new window, you'll be awarded 1 swag buck!

As far as I know this is limited to once per day.

How often do you receive messages from TSG on the toolbar? I have not received any since I set the toolbar up 4 days ago

Deborah June 21, 2010 at 12:40 pm 4

AT least once every other day if not more!

Hi, I think I must be missing something, but what do you “search” for? What do you put in to search?

Mandy September 22, 2010 at 2:28 pm 6

Just use it as if it were any other search engine like google or yahoo. Search for things you normally would and you will earn point. They are just reward you for using the swag bucks search engine.

I have a question. I have never redeemed anything using swagbucks even though I have enough points. Would it be possible to use them to get a gift cert and then use the 80% of coupon code to get a lot of free gift certs from the site? Just an idea
