I’d heard of Swagbucks as a shopping portal, and was recently approached by them regarding their product. Upon further exploration I learned that they a lot more going on than just that, so I decided to dive and review what they have going on. For full disclosure, I was offered the chance to earn a commission for this, but thought it would be better to opt out of that, and have them sweeten the pot a bit more with a prize for one lucky reader – so now there’s a chance to win $200!
What’s it all about?
You earn ‘Swagbucks’ which you can then later redeem in your account at a 1:1 value towards giftcards. They have a solid amount of these, notable ones being Paypal Cash, Amazon, Target and Walmart. OK so you probably don’t want to shop in that last place, but I included because you likely spend enough time there anyway…Also, it is worth noting that they offer a 450 Swagbucks award for a $5 Amazon giftcard. There are many other options available for those of you who might be persona non grata from the four horsemen of MS.
How do you earn Swagbucks?
This is the cool part – not only do they have an online shopping portal, they have many other ways to earn:
As you can see, they have a ton of options here, so it really has something for everyone. You can do as much, or as little as you like to earn. A couple that stand out as being pretty easy would be to install the search bar and get paid to search – from what I can gather you won’t earn on every search, but over a couple of hours you could gain up to around 50 Swagbucks here. Also, they give away ‘swag codes’ via social media channels, if you are keen to earn more, make sure you follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
Your chance to win $200!
If you haven’t joined Swagbucks already, and would like the chance to win $200 you have to do the following:
