As you follow me on Facebook (which you do, right?), you might have seen my Swag Bucks updates. I cheer when I hit 450 Swag Bucks because I can redeem them for a $5 Amazon gift card.

Could you use a few gifts cards to help you prepare for birthdays, Christmas, and anniversaries? If so, then try Swag Bucks.

What is Swag Bucks?

The web site Swagbucks.com is a search engine. Similar to Yahoo!, Google, Bing, Metacrawler, and Dogpile, Swag Bucks offers a search box where you type in your desired topic (e.g., using time wisely) and a list of web sites with those keywords fills the page.

When you search through Swagbucks.com, you may receive Swag Bucks (or points) for searching. The Swag Bucks range in amounts. I have received anywhere from 2 to 80 points for a search. Some days I will win Swag Bucks four different times while other days I might win once. The more often you search, the more chances you have to win Swag Bucks.
