It’s no secret that my man and I are on a tight budget right now! While it’s been a worthwhile endeavor, it hasn’t always been easy! I know many of you are in the same boat and so, I’d like to share a new discovery that is putting Amazon gift cards in our hands for free! Today, you’re going to learn how to earn free amazon gift cards with Swagbucks!
Whether you live in the States or Canada, the following information applies both countries!
WHAT IS SWAGBUCKS?
Swagbucks is a site that can be used as your computer or phone’s search engine, instead of Google, Foxfire or Chrome (we’re all familiar with those, right?!)
Unlike other search engines, Swagbucks rewards you with points every so often! Over time, these points accumulate. Once you have collected enough, they can be redeemed for not only Amazon gift cards, but a host of others as well (Starbucks, Barnes and Noble, Bass Pro Shop, variety of restaurants, etc)!
Pretty great, huh?! We buy lots of our books on Amazon!
And did you know earning Swagbucks points doesn’t stop with searching?! You can also earn points by taking their polls, playing games, sharing their site, watching recommended videos, shopping, couponing and more!
It’s not a scam! The Swagbucks earns money through affiliate links and for the number of views their site ads receive. More people utilizing their site=more money for them. Therefore, they reward users with points to draw more of us in!
HOW QUICKLY ARE SWAGBUCKS POINTS GAINED?
It depends on how much time you spend on their site and recommended items! Personally, I don’t play games, watch their videos or do their online shopping. I’ve never used their coupons! Instead, I utilize their site as my search engine and take the occasional poll or answer their daily question. That’s it!
Because I keep it so simple, my points don’t add up as fast as they could! If I wanted to gain points rapidly, I’d either have to spend more time on the computer or start couponing/shopping often…which would be counter productive because I know I’d end up spending more money than usual!
Instead, I see Swagbucks points as something that accumulates over several month’s time. If I’m patient, I’ll have extra money for special occasions, purchasing items on my wish list, the ability to give to others. Christmas gift funds, perhaps?
HOW TO SET SWAGBUCKS AS YOUR SEARCH ENGINE
You can set it up on both your computer and iPhone! If you follow this link to Swagbucks, they walk you through it all, step by step. It’s easy!
From there, the web site will guide you through everything you need to know. And when you earn points, a page will pop up with ‘congratulations!’ and a code. Enter your code into the box provided and presto! You’ve begun earning!
START USING AND RECOMMENDING IT TO OTHERS!
One of the best ways you can earn points is by doing what I’ve just done: recommend Swagbucks to your friends! Once you are set up on the site, you’ll have access to a code that can be emailed/messaged to your friends.
As a reward for spreading the good news about Swagbucks, you’ll automatically be given 10% when your friend/s join and gain points. And don’t worry: you won’t be taking anything from your friend/s! It’s a reward Swagbucks gives to you because you recommended them!
Now that I’ve opened the door on how to earn free Amazon gift cards with Swagbucks, it’s time to start banking points and wisely utilizing this site!
P.S. To those who join Swagbucks through the links I’ve provided, thank you so much! Every bit helps us reach our goal of one day owning a small farm. I’m grateful for your support in this small way!
