I've been using SWAGBUCKS.COM for the past two months and have earned over $25 in Amazon Gift Cards! You can do so too! It's free and easy and you should give it a shot! If you sign up using my referral you will be entered in a contest for 1600 MS Points with three chances to win! on top of all that, I guarantee that I will give you a free gift of a $5 Amazon Gift Card.
WHAT IS THIS SWAGBUCKS.COM?
Swagbucks is a search site (much like Google). You can use the Swagbucks site for your searches and each search gives you an opportunity to earn SWAGBUCKS.
WHAT ARE THESE SWAGBUCKS?
Swagbucks are a form of digital currency given out by swagbucks.com. You earn them in many ways and they can be spent on swagbucks.com for a whole lot of stuff. Chief of which is the $5 Amazon Gift Card, which I feel is the most bang for your swagbuck!
HOW ELSE CAN I EARN SWAGBUCKS?
You can do so in many ways, here are the key ways in which you can earn swagbucks.
1) Search using the Swagbucks search engine. You earn about 3-5 swagbucks a day via normal usage.
2) Refer your friends! Each friend referred will allow you to earn swagbucks as well! Each swagbuck your friend earns will net you one swagbuck (up to 100 swagbucks per referral)! This essentially doubles your earning power!
3) Plug in the swagcodes! Swagbucks.com regularly hands out swagcodes. This can be found almost daily on their twitter feed, facebook page or their own blog! Each code is usually worth 1 swagbuck (sometimes more). It is great fund finding these out! Every day is a treasure hung!
SOUNDS GOOD! WHEN CAN I START EARNING MY PRIZES?
You earn about 3-5 swagbucks a day via normal search usage. Add your friends and swagcodes and you can easily get about 10 swagbucks a day. You need 45 swagbucks to redeem the $5 Amazon Gift Card. So... you get about $5 off your Amazon purchases a week! And that is a conservative estimate!
AMAZING! WHAT'S THE CATCH?
I would love to say that there is none, but there is a small catch. Instead of using your favorite search engine, you will now need to use swagbucks.com for your searches.
AHA! THAT MEANS I WILL GET CRAP SEARCHES! IS IT USELESS?
Most certainly not. Swagbucks takes the results of both Google.com and Ask.com, crams it together and gives you the search result. Is it as good as Google? No. Is it more than sufficient for your day to day usage? YES. If you search "Amazon" or "Cheapassgamer" or "CNN", you will get the site that you are looking for, not some strange Nigerian portal to nowhere.
IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! HOW DO THEY EARN THEIR MONEY?
Not so simple. If you notice after you begin using the swagbucks search, swagbucks do not distinguish between normal search results and sponsored search results. This diverts some traffic to sponsored search results which increases their advertising income. BUT, it means next to nothing to you, since you still get the results you want!
TEMPTING. NOW WHAT IS THIS CONTEST YOU WERE YAPPING ON ABOUT?
Simple! Here are the contest rules
1) Use my referral (It's at the top and bottom of this post as well as my signature) to sign up for SwagBucks.
2) Post the First Name and Last Initial in this thread e.g. (Bill C. or Barak O.) to tell me that you've registered under my referral. I'll confirm your registration within a day or two.
3) Search and EARN at least 15 SWAGBUCKS (Only via searches, swagbucks earned via swagcodes or your referrals do not count)
4) Once you have completed step 3, you will be automatically enrolled in the Contest to WIN 1600 MS POINTS!
This Contest will be held at the end of every month from June 2009 to August 2009. As long as you hit 15 SWAGBUCKS and have not won a previous contest, you will be entered in each of these THREE CONTESTS. AMAZING!
THAT IS AMAZING! BUT WHAT IS THIS FREE GIFT THING?
Aha! Glad you got to it. As thanks for being my referral. Once you have managed to get 100 swagbucks via searching (i.e. you have managed to help me earn 100 swagbucks). I will send you one $5 Amazon Gift Card Code FREE. GUARANTEED! Why do I do this? That's because you have helped me earn something that I wouldn't have otherwise!
