Frugal Friday- Swagbucks

frugalfriday I recently discovered one of the easiest ways to make money ever. Outside of printing your own in your basement that is, but I am pretty sure that is illegal. And anyway by money I don’t mean money per se, but stuff money can buy.

How often do you “google” something? I am a googlin’ fool. And I am not getting a dime for all my searching. Until now. Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you for searching. You just use their search engine to search and periodically are awards swagbucks which can then be redeemed for all sorts of merchandise and gift cards. It takes a while to build up enough bucks to redeem, but you are searching anyway so why not make it worth your while.

You can also earn money by shopping at tons of online destinations through Swagbucks shopping portal. And they even help you out by finding you discount codes before you shop. For every $5 you spend through them, you get a swagbuck. Again, you are shopping anyway, might as well earn something for it.

Swagbucks uses Google and Ask.com to get their search results so they are good results. You just have to put up with a little bit of advertising sprinkled in, but you can pretty much tell which are legit results and which are advertising. It is so ridiculously simple. And oddly fun to watch your swagbucks accumulate.

Want to get started earning some bucks? Head over to their website and simply sign up. I find it easiest to install their toolbar so it is just there when you start searching, but if you don’t want to do that, you just need to go to Swagbucks.com like you would Google whenever you want to search. Happy searching!!

  3. My DH searches for everything. I mean if he’s going to myspace, instead of typing myspace.com in and hitting enter, he puts it in the search engine. I have no clue why and it has always annoyed me, but now I’m like, don’tcha need to go to some website? He’s earning us gift cards!
