So far in the Make Money Monday series, I've shared a lot about how I sell items to make money. This time around, I'm sharing how I earn FREE gift cards with Swagbucks. To me, it's the same as cash as long as they're for retailers where I would have spent money anyway. With Swagbucks, I've earned thousands of dollars in Amazon and other gift cards over the past four years. Many of my readers earn gift cards every month and treat them as extra income. Sign up with Swagbucks, then use these strategies:
Earn points daily with these 3 easy tasks
Every day you can earn 4 points in just a few clicks by refreshing the toolbar, taking the Daily Poll, and clicking through the NOSO offers. Look how quick it is:
Use the Swagbucks Toolbar to earn more points:
You can download the Swagbucks toolbar after you join as a member. Then, earn Swagbucks every day by using it every single time you do a search online and to cut and paste web addresses that you would otherwise type into the address bar. This earns me 8-30 Swagbucks every day, plus every time someone else is on the computer (like my kids or hubby), they're earning Swagbucks for my account as well! Watch how it works:
With just these two techniques, you'll earn enough Swagbucks to get an Amazon $5 Gift Card (which costs 450 Swagbucks in the Swag Store) by the end of one month. To earn more points faster, apply these other strategies:
Refer a Friend:
When someone you refer signs up using your Swagbucks link, you'll earn their first 1,000 Swagbucks along with them. With the holidays approaching, this is a great time to jump into Swagbucks with friends and family. They'll thank you for the FREE gift cards!
Purchase a Daily Deal:
If you're shopping through Groupon, Eversave, Plum District or Tippr, click through the Swagbucks Daily Deal page to earn Swagbucks along with your purchase. Keep this in mind if you're checking the daily deal sites for your holiday shopping or local deals. Deals earn anywhere from 45 to 315 Swagbucks depending on the purchase.
Watch Swagbucks TV and Special Offer Videos:
It's easy to earn a few extra Swagbucks daily by letting Swagbucks TV run in another tab of your browser. I just turn the volume off on my computer and let the videos run while I'm doing other tasks. It does take a bit of time, but it's mindless and I don't actually have to watch the videos. You'll also find Special Offers on the main page where you click to watch a 30-second or longer video, and you earn 1 or 2 Swagbucks each time. Again, I let these run in the background with no volume, and I just click back on them to be sure I've received my SBs. Sometimes they'll ask you to click through to a company's Facebook page; just look for the “Skip Step” and click on it. You'll still earn the SBs.
Meet the Daily Goal to Earn a Bonus:
Most days of each month, Swagbucks offers a bonus if you reach the goal posted on the right side of the main Swagbucks page. Today, it was 90, so the bonus would be 9. This encourages you to spend more time earning Swagbucks that day, but it can be very beneficial when you're trying to earn a lot for holiday shopping. Just be careful not to misuse your time (I've done this before).
If you're already earning Swagbucks, what are your tips for earning more? What gift cards are you earning?
Disclosure: If you sign up for Swagbucks under my referral link, I’ll earn Swagbucks along with you, up to the first 1000.
