I recently joined Swagbucks thanks to a friend who invited me. It's a way to earn free money for basically just using their site. Normally I am sort of cautious about these kinds of sites since there is usually a catch, but there isn't with this one ! You can earn points by using their search engine, filling out surveys, taking polls, etc. I am home all day with internet access so its been a great way for me to kill some time and earn "swagbucks". You also know that I am all about finding bargains and never paying full price for anything!
You can redeem your swagbucks for gift cards or other prizes. I have made it my goal to earn enough Amazon.com gift cards to at least cover 50% of Christmas gifts for this year. I would love to cover it all, but I figured that would be overly ambitious for now LOL. I will keep you all updated on this goal, but it would be pretty awesome to not pay anything for Christmas gifts which is usually a huge chunk out of our budget (on top of airfare and traveling!).
In almost 3 weeks I have earned $15 in Amazon.com gift cards. It might not be a lot, but it was more money than I had 3 weeks ago :) If you want to sign up for Swagbucks and give it a try you can click HERE. I also put a link in the side bar to the left. I can help you get started. Once you get used to it you figure out the easiest ways to earn swagbucks and redeem them for prizes! Good luck!
