I am a freelance writer, blogger and librarian. Do you know how many times I do a web search during the day? About a zillion and three. So, when I came across Swagbucks, which allows you to win Swagbucks while you search and then redeem them in the Swagstore, I decided to give it a try. As a bonus, it combines search results from Google and Ask, so I don’t have to key in search terms into two different search engines, but I get double results.
Well, I just cashed out for an Amazon gift certificate, so I’m pretty happy. I could have opted to redeem my bucks earlier for a Donovan McNabb trading card or a Coldplay photo or even saved my bucks until I had enough for a Wii Fit, but I’m a book junky!
Although I earned my Swagbucks strictly from searching for answers to my questions, there are several other ways to earn bucks. You can shop through the portal, recycle cell phones and invite friends to give it a try.
If you’re spending a lot of time on search engines, you may want to check out Swagbucks , too. Or take a look at Blingo , which gives away up to 25 instant win prizes a day to people who are using Blingo to perform their searches. After all, if you have to do a search anyway, you might as well do it using a search tool that could give you a nice little bonus prize.
