The people over at Swagbucks have decided to offer a bit of a sign-up incentive for my readers!
If you've been hearing about Swagbucks and are still a bit unsure of what this whole thing is about, here are the basics:
- Whenever you want to search for something on the web( ie. a google search), simply use your Swagbucks search instead. You can use the Swagbucks homepage or add a Swagbucks search to your internet toolbar. You will randomly be awarded prizes of 1, 2 or even 5 "bucks".
- As your points build up, you can trade them in for great gift certificates (among other things, but I like the certificates best). These include Amazon, Starbucks, Target, iTunes, Paypal, Restaurant.com, Barnes and Noble, etc. Depending on the card you choose, it will either be mailed to you within a few weeks, or you will receive a code to use when shopping online to redeem your gift certificate.
- Your Swagbucks earning power goes up when you have friends sign up under you, so let others know about it using your promotion codes (you can get these once you've signed up).
All in all, I've been more than impressed this past month, as I earn gift certificates for places that our family likes to shop at! My latest fun has been with Amazon cards, where I'm able to purchase groceries (last week I got Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Raw Cacao Powder), books, gifts, nutritional supplements, and even heirloom garden seeds (yes, this makes me excited!).
That said, if you sign up through my links, you'll receive 5 Swagbucks (3 for signing up, and 2 extra bucks for using my code) when you register for the first time, putting you well on your way towards your first gift card! Make sure that you use the code KEEPEROFHOME to get your extra bucks (code expires this Friday, July 24).
And then I promise, I'll stop talking about how great Swagbucks are, just as soon as I get over how great they really are! 🙂
