Let's Talk: Search and Earn

Thursday, September 18, 2014

I remember when we were in school and every essay required a trip to the library to check out the Encyclopedias and to ask the librarian for help finding books on a certain topic. I loved collecting a stack of books, filling up a few index cards with the information I found in the Encyclopedia, and sitting down to brainstorm for my essay.

Just when I was mastering that process, my school got a computer lab and we were taught to use Encyclopedias to make sure the information we found on the internet was actually correct. I was so reluctant to do my searches online because of this "verify your websites" business.

Then all of a sudden, every time I would ask a question, the response would be, "I don't know...Why don't you Google it?"? I have a lot of questions. People are constantly asking if I've "googled it" yet.


My Mom (being one of the most technologically advanced people that I know and all) found out about Swagbucks when everyone else was still "googling it". Don't get me wrong, I love Google, but Swagbucks gives you REWARDS for searching.

I followed my Mom's advance and signed up for Swagbucks. It's just now dawning on me to share this little gem with you!

If you're not familiar with Swagbucks, it's simply a free search engine that rewards you for searching. Swagbucks also offers you opportunities to earn rewards by taking surveys, signing up for coupons, shopping online, playing games, and even watching short videos.

Here's a snippet from their own about page:

"Swagbucks is the Web's premier rewards and loyalty destination. Swagbucks allows web and mobile members to earn virtual currency (called Swag Bucks) for doing what they already do online every day- watching videos, searching the web, playing games, participating in market research and shopping online. Swag Bucks can then be redeemed for valuable rewards, including gift cards to the world's online and offline retailers. Since its launch in 2008, Swagbucks has awarded more than $45 million in real life rewards." 


You might be wondering what kinds of rewards they offer...Begin by signing up and claiming your rewards points. Once they have built up a bit, you will be able to exchange your points for gift cards to all kinds of stores: Amazon, Wal-Mart, Paypal, Target, Old Navy, Lowes, Nike, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Homegoods, and the list goes on and on.

Sign up HERE and get started on earning your rewards today.

Just so you know, when you sign up using any link found on this site, I'll get points.

When you invite your friends to sign up, you'll get points.

*Even though there are "affiliate links" throughout this post, Swagbucks did not ask me to write it . I use Swagbucks and I'm sharing it with you because I think you'll enjoy using it too!

  1. I've heard of this! I use something called MyPoints, which I think is basically the same idea. I got a $50 gift card to PF Changes a few months ago from the points I'd earned for basically doing nothing! It was awesome.


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
