Search & Win

For my frugal readers:  This is a quick tip if you plan on doing any Amazon shopping this holiday season.

A couple of my friends have asked me about how Swagbucks works, since I keep getting free $5 Amazon cards from them.

Basically, you sign up for a free account and next time you need to do an internet search or go to a website, start your search at the Swagbucks site and every now and then, you’ll earn a few Swagbucks.  These add up over a while and when you have 450 swagbucks, you can order a $5 Amazon gift card.  (You also get 30 free Swagbucks when you start a new account through my link)

You can also go to the Swagbuck toolbar section and install a plug-in, so you can use the little search box at the top of most browsers to automatically use Swagbucks when you search without going to their website to do it.

What’s the catch?  The Swagbuck searches mix in advertising with the search results and when you click on them, they are getting paid advertising dollars.  The only difference is that they pass some of that on to you in the form of ‘prizes’.

It’s not a ton of money, but if I’m going to be on the internet anyway . . .

If you’re curious as to how well it works, here’s how many I’ve earned in the last year:

So, I get a free card about every month or so.

And finally, when a friend signs up through you, you’ll get matching Swagbucks for the first 1000 they earn.  (Thank you, if you decide to sign up through my links :-))

I hope this helps some of you!
