How to Maximize Your Swag Buck Earnings

Search & WinSwag Bucks is one of my favorite ways to earn money and gift cards on the web.  I’ve used Swag Bucks for everything from Christmas gifts to my new refrigerator.

If you’ve never used Swag Bucks, it’s really easy.  Just sign up for a free account, and use Swag Bucks to search the internet.  You will win digital dollars called Swag Bucks, that you can use to get all kinds of cool stuff like Amazon gift cards, cash (via PayPal) and music and sports memorabilia.

I know quite a few folks say that they signed up for Swag Bucks, but never win. I’ve been using Swag Bucks for a year-and-a-half and I can tell you that there are lots of ways to win.
Here are some easy ways to maximize your Swag Bucks earnings:

Referrals.  This is my favorite way to earn Swag Bucks.  Refer your friends, family, and blog readers to Swag Bucks and as they earn Swag Bucks, so will you (up to 1000 Swag Bucks per referral).

Download the Swag Bucks Tool Bar. This is my second favorite way to earn Swag Bucks.  Just download and install the Swag Bucks Tool Bar to make using Swag Bucks for all your internet searches a breeze.  And the more you use Swag Bucks, the more you win.  You’ll even get Swagbucks just for having it installed. You’ll also see messages from The Swag Guy right on the Tool Bar – and he often includes Swag Bucks with his notes.

Daily Polls.  This is a brand new feature that I’m looking forward to trying.  Earn Swag Bucks by sharing your opinions in the daily polls.  You can also submit a poll idea to the site and earn 100 Swag Bucks if your poll is featured.

Swag Hunts and Games.  It pays to connect with Swag Bucks on Facebook, Twitter, and the Swag Blog.  The Swag Bucks folks like to conduct Swag Hunts (scavenger hunts) and hold contests for the chance to earn more Swag Bucks.

Shop through Swag Bucks. If you’re planning on making an online purchase, check to see if you can shop through Swag Bucks.  You earn Swag Bucks for every $1 you spend.

Watch videos.  You can earn Swagbucks for watching short videos on a variety of topics.

Participate in Special Offers. If you’re looking to raise a chunk of Swag Bucks fast, check out the limited time special offers at Swag Bucks to earn Swag Bucks or the no-obligation offers for a chance to win some Swag Bucks.  The offers are usually for things like Netflix or DirecTV, so be sure you really want to try these services and that you read all the small print before committing to anything.

Those are just a few of the ways you can be on your way to earning free cash and prizes.

Note:  When you sign up for Swagbucks, you’re not only joining a great service to help you earn free cash and prizes, you’re also helping support this blog.  Thank you!
