Per Swagbucks website, " Swagbucks is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called Swagbucks, which can be redeemed for exclusive Swagbucks.com merchandise ".
By merchandise they're also talking gift cards, as in Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Home Depot, and PayPal, to name a few. 96 different gift cards in various denominations @ last count.
It's with Amazon gift cards that I buy groceries to stock the pantry.
Later on I plan to buy long term prep foods, along with a few homesteading tools that we don't have. Woodsrunner is using Swagbucks that he earns for Christmas shopping.
Right now though I'm concentrating primarily on groceries that I can't produce ourselves or barter for. Items like peanut butter or oatmeal.
It is for us the most bang for our swagbuck. For you it may be a new lap top or kindle, or clothing. Because Amazon sells just about everything under the sun.
If you use this link for Swagbucks you will become my referral which means that for the first 1000 swagbucks you earn by online searching I also get swagbucks to match.
If you decide to sign up as my referral I thank you very much. Being able to buy groceries for free has really made a huge impact on our household budget.
As with anything in life you get what you put into it. It's similar to having a home garden, if you don't take an active interest and participate then your not going to get a bountiful harvest. So yes you do have to actually use the Swagbucks site if you want to get any coin, dough, greenbacks, mulah.
On the right hand side of my blog is a category labeled Swagbucks Rewards were I post about the items I've purchased with gift cards I've earned on the Swagbucks site.
If you've read my blog for even a few posts then you know how tight I can be with money.
I promise you, this is for real.
Once you've signed up here is a great site that explains how to swag well Swagging 101
