Swagbucks...seriously, it's time to join.

Have you heard of Swagbucks?  If you haven't, continue reading.  If you have, but aren't signed up yet, continue reading.  Swagbucks is, at their core, a search engine website that periodically rewards you for searching.  Seriously, it's like Google With Monetary Benefits.  You all search for things, right?  Well, if you search through Swagbucks, you will periodically earn "bucks" that can be redeemed for various products and giftcards.  I've been using Swagbucks since last November, so roughly seven months, and have earned $45 in Amazon giftcards.  I kid you not!  All by searching, which we all do everyday anyway.  It takes awhile to get up to 450 Swagbucks (which is how much a $5 Amazon gift card "costs"), but you all search for things anyway...why not get rewarded to do it?!

Want to know how you can earn a $5 gift card by the end of this month, and every month following it, with minimal effort?  If you consider that a $5 gift card is 450 Swagbucks, that means you need to earn about 15 Swagbucks a day to earn one in a month, which is easy as pie.

First, sign up for Swagbucks.  When people sign up, you start with an automatic 30 Swagbucks.  Because I'm such an influential blogger and all, if you sign up through my referral links and use the code  MEMORIALDAY when prompted, your account will be padded with an extra 50 Swagbucks for 80 Swagbucks total to get you started!  

After you've signed up, download the toolbar.  It's the easiest way to remember to use Swagbucks instead of Google.  Plus, if you have the toolbar downloaded, you'll earn an extra Swagbuck every day just by opening up your internet browser.

Then start searching!  The best tip is to search normally.  If you regularly use your computer all day long and search all day long, you'll likely see that you'll earn Swagbucks for searching once in the morning, once in the afternoon and once in the evening.  That's just kind of how it happens.  

To earn a couple of extra Swagbucks in about 15 seconds, open up the Swagbucks Survey page.  You'll automatically earn a Swagbuck without even taking a survey.  Then head to the Swagbucks Daily Poll page and answer their single question daily poll.  Voila!  Another Swagbuck. 

So with one search (normally between 7-15 Swagbucks per search, but sometimes up to 50!), by having the toolbar downloaded (1 Swagbuck per day), visiting the survey page (1 Swagbuck per day) and taking the daily poll (1 Swagbuck per day), you can easily earn 15 points a day, which would earn you enough for a $5 Amazon Gift Card each month, or $60 worth of gift cards in a year.  And that's just with MINIMAL effort!

For a great list of tips on ways to earn even more Swagbucks, see here.

Are you convinced yet?  Head over to Swagbucks using this link, sign up, type the code MEMORIALDAY and start racking up the prizes!  But hurry...The MEMORIALDAY code is only good through this Friday at 11:59pm.

Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions that you have about Swagbucks!

All of these words and opinions are my own.  Nobody's writing me a check to post this!  And, yes, it really is that easy, and yes, I really have earned $45 in Amazon gift cards!  Just want to share the wealth with all of you lovelies!
