Something New: SwagbucksMonday, May 28, 2012
It's officially summer and while I've had my countdown going for quite sometime, now that it's here I almost don't know what to do with myself. I went on a cleaning binge last weekend so I've only had to spot clean here and there and since I'm not teaching summer school I feel a tad bit guilty that I'm not pulling in any income to add to our emergency fund (darn you Dave Ramsey!)
While I know I don't want a part time job I am interested in generating some kind of earnings for crafty projects and stuff around the house doing things I already do...like perusing the internet. Recently I stumbled across Money Saving Mom (nope, not a mom yet but she has some great tips!) and she had a link for SwagBucks.
What is SwagBucks?
"Swagbucks.com is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive Swagbucks.com merchandise."I was a little leery at first but after reading Money Saving Mom and how she was able to earn gift cards to places like Amazon.com I thought it couldn't hurt to poke around and try it out.
Earning SwagBucks is pretty simple, conduct web searches, watch videos, play games, and find codes for SwagBucks on Facebook and Twitter. Easy peasy.
I just signed up today and I've racked up 130 SwagBucks doing regular activities like searching the web. It takes about 450 Swagbucks to earn a $5 gift card to Amazon...at this rate I could earn one each week!

Do you already use SwagBucks? If so, what have you earned already or are you saving up for something big?
