Today, a very fast growing site on the internet is swagbucks. On swagbucks, you simply use a search engine similar to Google and you will have a chance to win a swagbuck. Swagbucks can then be redeemed for prizes. Sounds simple right? Well swagbucks is a lot more complicated then that.

There are many good things and bad things about swagbucks. It is more rewarding then an average search engine for sure, but is it that much rewarding? The website gives away swagbucks randomly to different accounts. However, searching more times will not let you win more swagbucks. There is some autotimer in the system that allows your account to receive a swagbuck when you search every 4-5 hours or so. Therefore, it may look simple to get swagbucks at first, but you will have to keep going back to the site to win prizes. Another good thing however, is that when you win swagbucks, you have a chance of winning multiple swagbucks. You can win 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 swagbucks at a time. Of course, most of the time you end up winning 1 swagbuck

This leads me to my next point, which is about prizes. The good thing is that some prizes only cost a few swagbucks. For example, you can buy a gift card to an unknown store for only a few swagbucks. However, if you have tried any website like my coke rewards, you will know it takes a while to get many swagbucks. For example, to get an ipod touch, you need 3000 swagbucks. Everyday you get around three swagbucks. It will take you a little under 9 years to get your iPod touch.

However, there are other good ways to get swagbucks on swagbucks. One thing you can do is trade in your old video games and cell phones. Swagbucks will give you a legitimate amount of swagbucks for you stuff you trade in. Also, like many sites, you can earn swagbucks through referrals. However, unlike many sites, it does not stop there. On swagbucks, you can also earn swagbucks through swag codes. If you read the blog, the swagguy will come around a post a swagcode. Enter the swag code and earn one or two swag bucks. On the blog, there are also many contests that you can enter to earn even more swagbucks. Lastly, you can earn swagbucks if you are choosen as the hourly winner. The hourly winner will earn five swagbucks. You have to be online to be the hourly winner.

Overall, swagbucks is a somewhat legit site for winning free stuff. Is it more rewarding the searching on Google? You can say that. Can you get rich off it? Probably not. Is it worth a shot? That is for you to decide.

    I can’t remember how I found out about Swagbucks, but it is great. I have used my Swagbucks to buy xbox games for my kids, as well as amazon gift cards for myself. Right now I’m at just over 10,000 Swagbucks, but I’m not sure what to get this time as they offer more prizes for US residents, and I am in Canada.
