I am usually pretty even headed, thinking that not every money-saving tactic is right for everyone. With swagbucks, I stand firm. It's for everyone. I'm sure that many of my readers are familiar with swagbucks, but for those who aren't, please read on.
When you search on google or yahoo, google and yahoo are making money off of you. If you notice when you search, the first few links are "sponsored links." Google and yahoo, or whatever search engine you use, is making money when you search because someone is paying them so that they can show you advertisements, or "sponsored links."
Swagbucks pays you back a part of their profit. By simply switching search engines, you can make a pretty consistent $5.00 per month. I switched swagbucks to my homepage just to make it easier.
When you search, you can "win" swagbucks. We win one or two a day, just for regular searching. You can take your swagbucks to the swag store and buy "swag." You can get a $5 Amazon gift card for 45 swagbucks. This is what we do. We get one just about every month. I cashed out and got one just yesterday, which is what reminded me to finally post about it. You can also cash out with a PayPal payout or a prepaid MasterCard, but those options cost more swagbucks, so you won't get as much. If you do not switch to swagbucks, you are simply letting other people keep money that could be yours. I have had my swagbucks banner on the side since I started this blog, and all the swagbucks links on this post are my referral links. If you don't want to use my referral link, that's fine, use banner below.
I have seen other people promote "special deals" for their referrals, saying that if you sign up with their referral link, you will get 3 bonus swagbucks. Well, that's true, but everyone who signs up, regardess of what referral link or if they use a referral link starts off with 3 swagbucks. The important thing is to sign up, then make it your search engine and continue on with life.
