SwagBucks: It gets my vote too!
Have you signed up for SwagBucks yet? After hearing about this program from numerous sources, I finally paid attention when a couple of my close friends gave their vote that it's actually something worth signing up for!
SwagBucks allows you to earn points (called "swagbucks") just by using their search engine online. If you're attached to using Google.com, like I am, don't worry -- the search results pull right from Google.com so it's really no different from Googling!
These points, which gradually accumulate, can be redeemed for prizes. Some of the most popular prizes are $5 Amazon Gift Cards (costs 45 points) and $10 Starbucks Gift Cards (costs 130 points).
The good part is that you can accumulate these points while doing your normal, everyday searches, so it's not taking any extra time! Who couldn't use a few extra dollars for Amazon goodies every now and then?! :) I've been signed up for a couple weeks now and just earned my first $5 Amazon card.
I also downloaded a little SwagBucks search box for in my browser toolbar, to make it even easier to use SwagBucks for all my searches.
So, if you've heard about SwagBucks but weren't sure if it was soemthing worth signing up for, here's my vote for it, too! :)
Full Disclosure (as usual!): The SwagBucks links in this post are my affiliate links and I'll get extra points when you sign up. :) Once you've signed up, you can email or post your own referral links on your blog to earn some extra points as well! :)
Those of you who've been using SwagBucks for a while now, tell us what your favorite prize is! I'd love to hear how SwagBucks has worked out for you. (Or, if it hasn't worked very well, I'd like to hear about that too!)
