Should You Swag? Making Money on Swag Bucks

Updated on January 1, 2012

This article is about my first month using Swag Bucks. Swag Bucks is a website where you can earn Swag Bucks for participating in certain activities. Swag Bucks are points that you can accumulate to get prizes. You can trade your Swag Bucks in for gift cards, physical prizes and even PayPal cash. While you are not actually earning hard cash everyday, these gift cards are the equivalent of cash money.

Extra Money


Is Swag Bucks Worth Your Time?

After one month, I have earned over 2000 Swag Bucks. I have cashed in some of my Swag Bucks for $10 in PayPal cash and have enough right now to cash in for two $5 Amazon gift cards. Most people opt to get the Amazon gift cards, as they seem to provide the most value for your Swag Buck. However, if you really need the cash, it just takes a few more weeks to earn the PayPal cash. Considering the fact that I have not had to spend all that much time on Swag Bucks, I would say that it is worth it. I spend less than an hour a day and have invested zero dollars.

Not every activity on Swag Bucks is worth my time. The easiest way for me to earn Swag Bucks is to use the search engine. Swag Search is like Google. So, you can use it as you would Google or any other search engine. You pretty much get some of the same results, although the Swag Search has a lot more ads you have to filter through to get the information you are really seeking. By using the search engine, you win random Swag Bucks just for your searches. You have to do real searches and look at the article results. You don’t win every time. I usually win about 30 Swag Bucks a day from using the search engine several times throughout the day. If you download the toolbar, you can earn a few extra Swag Bucks by logging into the toolbar every day. The toolbar is okay because it reminds you to use the search engine. Fridays are supposed to be Mega Swag Bucks days where you have the chance to extra Swag Bucks from searches. I personally find that I tend to earn about the same every day regardless of the day of the week.

Other things I do to earn Swag Bucks are play the free games and do the daily polls, as well as view the special offers. You can earn a few Swag Bucks just for doing these things. I only do the activities that are free and don’t take that much time. I tend not to qualify for most of the surveys, so find them to be a waste of time. Following Swag Bucks on Facebook and Twitter is supposed to provide you Swag Codes that could lead to Swag Bucks. I have not participated too much in these activities due to my busy schedule. You can also do online shopping through Swag Bucks to earn more Swag Bucks. I have not yet bought anything through Swag Bucks. I mainly just participate in activities that I find fun and easy to do while watching television.

I like the fact that Swag Bucks doesn’t send you a lot of junk emails. You can sign up for certain offers if you want to receive these emails or you can just decline. I hate all those extra emails that you get when you sign up for online earning opportunities, so Swag Bucks is a good alternative.

If you decide to Swag, good luck to you and have some fun.
