SwagBucks: The Digital Dollar, or Make Some "Money" Searching For Things Online!

At the bottom of my page, you will find a link to a website called SwagBucks. This website is bascally a search engine through which you may profit just by searching for things online; I will explain more about that in a moment. Its search engine is powered by Google, so it is trustworthy and thorough.

Here is what is in it for you: when you create an account by clicking on the link you see at the end of this sentence, you get something called SwagBucks. As the title of this post indicates, they are more or less digital dollars; you can use them to buy things online through the SwagBucks website. However, let us say that you want to buy something on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, or get a cup of coffee (or whatever you like) at Starbucks; you can trade in your SwagBucks to get gift cards to these places and others. You can get a $5 Amazon.com gift card for forty-five SwagBucks, and it works similarly for other gift cards. One can get other items for their SwagBucks, but the gift card option is my favorite.

Here is what is in it for me: if you join by clicking the links that are in this post, I (well, actually my mother gets) get a SwagBuck every time you do, up to your first hundred SwagBucks! There are other ways of getting SwagBucks, too; for example, you could trade them old cell phones or video games, and these give you SwagBucks as well, and sometimes quite a few of them. There are still other ways of getting them, which you can learn by visiting their website. If you do not want to have to go to a different search engine other than your Google (or Yahoo or AOL or MSN Live Search or whatever search engine you use) home page, you can download a toolbar from them that gives you a search box, so you can earn SwagBucks without even trying!

Thanks for reading, and God Bless all of you!
