With just a tiny bit of effort, you can pretty easily earn enough to get a $5 Amazon gift card (or a number of other prizes worth around $5) every 4-6 weeks.

Now, you might be thinking, “What’s the big deal if I only earn a $5 gift card every month?” Well, you’re right, $5 isn’t that exciting. It’s something, but that’s only the beginning. You see, your earnings will exponentially multiply when you refer others.

Do you know anyone else who searches online? I thought so. Well, tell them about , send them your referral link, and you’ll not only instantly earn more points when they sign up, you’ll also earn points for the searching they do online.

    First of all – I love your blog! Thanks for all your work in putting it together it has helped me tons!

    I was just wondering if you ever do the swagstakes or if you only save your points for Gift Cards. I guess I’m wondering if it is easy to win on those or if it is better to save your points.


    • Crystal says:

      I save my points for the gift cards, just because I think there’s not a great chance of winning the swagstakes. But I’d love to hear if anyone here has won any of them before?

  • Jessica Fritz says:

    I signed up for Swagbucks and I tried to refer a couple of people, but they said they never received anything from Swagbucks to sign up. Is there another way to refer people and get credit for it? I went to the section refer and I manually entered some e-mail addresses in. I was wondering what the best way was to do this.

  • Katie says:

    There’s a code just released on the Swagbucks blog!!

    • Christie says:

      @Katie, Thanks, Katie! I’ve never used the blog before (I’m pretty new to Swag Bucks) so I did a search for the blog and won $25 swag bucks for searching =)

  • Misty says:

    I signed up for Swagbucks under you about 16 months ago. I have worked hard to search regularly and have gotten a bunch of referrals. I have earned over $900 in Amazon credit. Thanks so much for sharing!

  • says:

    I did all my shopping for my husband with Swagbucks a little Paypal and other “invisible money” last year. I loved it because it meant he didn’t have to pay for his own presents when the credit card bill arrived. This year I expect to have way more bucks to spend and hope to do ALL the holiday shopping with them. I also use it to buy myself books to read on my Kindle.

  • Amy says:

    Am I the only one who isn’t a big fan of Swagbucks? I still use it from time to time (just to earn points), but then immediately head to google and do my search there as it seems like I never get a decent result using Swagbucks to search. I realize the way you earn a lot is through referrals and I just can’t refer them as a good search engine. Am I alone?

    • bethany m says:

      @Amy, I’ve created a shortcut link for moneysaving mom and other sites I normally go to to count as searches – but I agree. If I’m actually looking for something Google is my go-to 🙂

    • Emily says:

      @Amy, I used to go to another search engine after using the Swagbucks site to earn points for searching, but I actually haven’t had to do that in a long time. I almost always find the result I need around the 4th or 5th item in the result list. I also regularly use the Swagbucks search (from the toolbar–that makes it super easy) to pull up a website when I already know the web address–just for the Swagbucks I could earn. For example, if I want to go to December212012, I type it in the search box and it’s almost always the 4th or 5th item in the result list.

  • Deana says:

    Thanks for the info. I’ve never heard of Swagbucks before – I signed up under your link ~

  • Renee Richards says:

    Where do you enter your birthday at if you are already a member?

  • Suebob says:

    I signed up for Swagbucks the other day through your site…it seems like a pretty sweet deal – I just love free money. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I should now be one of your referrals and am happy to share my swagbucks with you to thank you for all the help you have been to me through your blog posts.
