I am probably the last person on the internet that wasn’t using Swagbucks for internet searches. If you haven’t gotten on the bandwagon here is what you are missing:

Free Gift Cards

Basically you register and download the toolbar. You can do any online searches using your Swagbucks toolbar and you are randomly awarded bucks. The toolbar gives you the same results as Google or Ask.com so it is basically effortless. There are a variety of gift cards to chose from including Target, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Starbucks etc..

There is absolutely no charge and once you accumulate enough points you just request your gift card.  Then it posts to your account and you can use it immediately.  You can accumulate as many gift cards as you like and use them all at once to get items totally for free.

This is an awesome program and you can get started right HERE.

I signed up a few days ago, have been doing many searches through the toolbar but have never won any swagbucks. Is it totally random? Does it work when I click on my favorites or do you have to type a web address into the search field?

how fast have you earned gift cards? do you do other things besides the searches? I don’t want to get sucked into all the “free” offers

Amy I just go about my life as normal and I typically do not have the time to do any of the other means of earning bucks. I will go after the codes that are very quick and easy- otherwise I just search and that is that. It seems most readers that sign up earn between $10-25 a month in Amazon cards. So get a lot more by doing the other things.

Hi ladies! Ok so I get the searching, and different lil things. but the codes sometimes BAFFLE ME!!! I’ve looked and looked and looked and I know you are not supposed to share codes but what do they LOOK LIKE? how many letters/words? do they vary? are they colored? black? red? how do they stand out? this is where I’m lost! 178 Swagbucks so far and just started on Monday and this is only my second time on the laptop this week! YAY!

Bekka- Read the comments here and I walked people through how to find a code:

How do you enter the coupon codes? I put the 5For5 in the “enter your swag code” box but it wouldn’t work for me.

Penny, ok did you enter it when registering or on the Swagbucks home page?
