Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you periodically when you search. I usually search a few times a day and after about 5 searches I am able to score at least one Swagbuck. It is surprising how fast they accumulate for minimal effort. AND it only takes 45 Swagbucks to get a $5 Amazon gift card. If you have shopped at Amazon you know that you can get some really good deals. I used Amazon for many of my Xmas gifts, this year I plan on using the gift cards I earn through Swagbucks towards gifts for others. Especially for those kids in my life who want specific items that I know they will not need to return.
If you are not using Swagbucks - just go here to sign up!!
