If you were with me last year, you saw what an amazing impact Swagbucks has had on my family budget. By trading Swagbucks in for gift cards to use on purchases I would make otherwise*, I had over $1300 more in my family budget in 2009.
*This is key. It's one thing to use the gift cards for “fun” things that are extra to your budget (movies, Xbox points, etc.), but when you're trying to pay down debt, you can really help yourself by using the gift cards for budget line items like clothing, gifts, household items, etc. By using my Swagbucks earnings this way, it frees up hundreds of dollars that I then send towards debt or savings.
