I joined swagbucks about a month ago.  It took a minute to download the toolbar and I've been using that to search online instead of going to google.com first. It uses google so I get the same results. The difference is that now I'm earning swagbucks that I can trade in for prizes.  There are hundreds to choose from but my favorite are the $5 giftcards from amazon.com.  In just 4 weeks, I've gotten more than $40 in FREE giftcards for amazon.com.  

It's free. It's easy. There's no catch at all!


Since joining paperbackswap a couple years ago I rarely buy books but sometimes I just want a book NOW that has a long waiting list. Now I can buy those books using the free giftcards and then trade them on here for more books I want!

so just by using their browser you can earn bucks to get amazon gift certificates? I'm curious before I download something onto my computer(can't do it here at work anyways) but I'm not wanting to do a bunch of shopping to earn stuff since my goal is to cut way back on spending but I do a lot of browsing/searching for topics and such and am curious how this adds up.

Hey, I just signed up.  So how often do you get swag bucks for searching?  Is it totally random or do you get them about once a day?  Just wondering how this is going to work.

I've been a member for a month and a half or so now. Normally the points pop up about once or twice a day, sometimes more, usually the first time within a few searches. You can also earn points by finding swagcodes and entering them in, referring other people (this is hands down the best way to earn them!), sending in old electronics and videogames, shopping  etc. I've earned $20+ so far, just through searching and referring 2 people... no shopping and no spam. It's great! =)  http://swagbucks.com/?cmd=sb-register&rb=330554
