Swagbucks

I host the Frugal Tuesday Tip, and today I’m writing about Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a search engine that I have used to earn fun things like T shirts, Starbucks gift cards — I love my coffee — as well as skins for your phone, kids stuff, greeting cards, jewelry, and all other sorts of stuff.

I’ve made it my default search engine to make it easier to earn swagbucks quickly, and I’ve read about people using Swagbucks specifically for Christmas gifts. I’ve written about entering giveaways as way to get stuff. While they are fun, I have more control with Swagbucks. I normally do internet searches, so using Swagbucks doesn’t take the extra time that giveaways do. Swag prices range from 5 to 85,000 Swagbucks; items go on sale and clearance (I’m all over that). Swag is sent via U.S.P.S. One gal gets about $2000 worth of Swagbucks per year.

You can try Swagbucks through my referral link to see if you like it: click here.

There is special promotion for March, too, called March Swagness, a play on “March Madness.” It’s all about you earning bonus Swag Bucks while doing all of the things you’d already do, like search the internet. Every day they’ll give you an earning goal, which you’ll find on their homepage. As you earn Swag Bucks throughout the day, that meter will fill up and when it’s full, you’ll have earned your bonus for the day. The bonus will always be 10% of that day’s goal.

The earning goal for any given day could be higher or lower than the day before, so you should check in to Swagbucks home page every day. Your total bonus amount will continue to accumulate each day, and your bonus amount will be applied at by April 5th – this special promotion runs through April 2nd. If you hit the earning goal every single day of March Swagness, your bonus amount will be doubled! I talked about planning as a key to maintaining a frugal lifestyle — March Swagness would be an example of planning through goal setting — find swag that you want, then work toward earning the swagbucks for it by April 2.
You will see that Swagbucks has surveys and other things to do. These other things will also gain you Swagbucks to put towards March Swagness.

March Swagness starts on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, when the goal will be 50 Swag Bucks. Here is my referral link again http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/juliecache.

      Karen, what kinds of things have you gotten with Swagbucks? The gal I linked to in the post says that $5 Amazon gift cards get the most mileage. Have you found that to be true? I don’t shop with Amazon very much at all, but now I’m considering it.
