Tip – Swagbucks Free Money

One great way to fund your hobby is to get free gift cards to spend on Amazon and Paypal!  If you are on the internet and use Google you could make one little tweak and be earning swagbucks which you convert to Amazon.com gift cards or paypal money. Thanks to Swagbucks we were able to buy paint supplies, a shower head, Christmas presents, hobby supplies – all without it costing us a penny! The possibilities are endless.

Tip- Swagbucks Free Money

So, if you are already a swagbucks fan, you can skip this entry (or better yet, forward this link to your friend, cousin, sister or post the link to this article on your facebook page so you can get people to sign up and help you make even more money).

Here’s a step by step guide to starting Swagbucks:

  1. Go here and fill in your name, address and email information. (There is a blank that says ‘swagcode’ – just skip that space.
  2. The next screen will ask you if you want to download the toolbar. You do not have to do that; you can just skip it if you want. I downloaded the toolbar about a year ago and have had no problem with it at all (and I am one of those people who doesn’t download stuff easily). It does make it easier to remember to use swagbucks but you really don’t need it.
  3. You will have the option of whether you want to make swagbucks your home page. Again, that’s your choice. I chose no and left my home page as google.

You’re done! You will see in the top right corner of your swagbucks page your name and how many swagbucks you have (you will probably start with 30). Now it’s time to start earning more bucks.

Every time you search the internet, start at the toolbar or from the swagbucks home page. I even ‘search’ for google, hotmail or my blog. After about 3 or 5 searches, a new screen will pop up saying “congratulations, you just won a swagbuck’. You will need to be logged in  to ‘claim your buck’.

Daily Poll:  Every day Swagbucks posts a new poll.  It takes about 1 minute and you get a bonus swagbuck.  If you do that every day, you are guaranteed an extra swagbuck every day!   On the main swagbucks page, you will see a tab that says “earn”.  If you click it, you will see ‘daily poll’.

Now you can go back to your regular search engine if you want (google or yahoo etc).

The best reward is for a $5.00 Amazon gift card. Read here to find out what you can buy at amazon.com with $5.00! It takes 450 bucks to get a Amazon gift card. So you’re on your way to free stuff. (You CAN stack these amazon cards!!! We usually save them till we have at least $25 in gift cards then we get free shipping too!

    I love Swagbucks! I always use their search, but I really need to start doing some of the other things they have to earn points. At the rate I go, I usually end up with a $5 Amazon card every six weeks or so.

    I just came over from the Finding Friends Blog Hop. Great site. I am a SWAGBUCKS junkie! I signed up in March and have already earned $40 in Amazon gift cards. The only thing I have done different is using their tool bar for searching the web. Love it, Love it, Love it. Blessings, Melissa
