Swagbucks Tutorial - What Is It and How Does it Work? Great Easy Way to Earn Rewards and Money Online!

It's Friday again, so it's Mega Swagbucks Day, which means bigger, better Swagbucks are given out!!

What is SwagBucks?  Swagbucks is a search engine where you earn "bucks" for searching the internet - AND by redeeming FREE codes, answering poll questions, watching videos, referring friends (whatever they win by searching, you earn buck for buck up to 1000 per referral!), among other things to earn rewards such as gift cards (to Amazon, GAP, Starbucks, Barnes & Nobles, iTunes.....), apparel, video games, electronics and much more.  Join HERE and start earning!!

I love Swagbucks!!  It's a really easy way to get rewards just for searching the web like you normally would.  If you're not already signed up, I highly recommend it!

You can go to and search, or you can choose to set it as your homepage, add the toolbar, and/or make it your default search bar to use it. 
I've made it the default search engine and our homepage so when we get online I automatically just "search" for wherever I need to go - yahoo, facebook, etc.

The first time I get online each day I go to the "Earn" tab at the top of the Swagbucks page and do these things to earn.....
  •  Click "NOSO" and click through the offers (without entering info) and am awarded 2 bucks at the end
  •  Go to "Daily Poll" under the same tab (I love polls  ;) and answer the question for another buck! 
  • Then, if there's a video available on the front page, I watch that for (usually) 2 bucks.  When the video's done, I close the window it popped up in and refresh the Swagbucks page and another one usually appears.....I'll have those play in the background for as long as they offer them, while I go about whatever I'm doing online!  At 2 bucks each, those can really add up!

So, right away I get 3-5 Swagbucks in about a minute.....and occasionally they offer more in those links.  There are other ways to earn (like taking surveys - I recently did a 15-20 minute survey for 60 Swagbucks), but those are the 3 I do every day, along with searching of course.  =)

They also offer "free codes" occasionally via Twitter, their Facebook page, their blog or Swidget (a widget on some people's blogs).....and when I come across those, I post it on the Super Savings Facebook page.

You can redeem your Swagbucks for lots of things.  I like redeeming them for Amazon gift cards because they don't take long to earn and are great to have "on hand" for the really great deals Amazon runs (like these super cheap diapers!!).  Currently it takes 450 Swagbucks to earn a $5 gift card.  I've recently redeemed over $60 in gift cards from Swagbucks and haven't made much of an effort to get them.  It's a super easy way to earn rewards for doing what you already do!!  My goal this year is to have a "free" Christmas, and Swagbucks will be a big help in that goal!

It's easy to sign up and easy to use - I love seeing that "buck" show up when I've won one!    =)
Remember, I don't recommend anything that I don't/wouldn't use myself.  I personally like Swagbucks a LOT!  Just click HERE and start searching!
