I first heard about Swagbucks at a couple of my favorite blogs. I'm usually pretty slow to jump on any bandwagon, but after hearing that they had paid for their Christmas presents via Amazon using Swagbucks, I had to check it out.
After signing-up, you just the Swagbucks search engine to do all your normal searching. I will also use their search engine to search for things like my own blog and those of my friends. Every once in awhile, while searching, a Swagbuck or two or five will be awarded. These can be redeemed for prizes or Amazon gift cards. (Note: The best deal is currently the $5 denomination.)
It becomes almost a game. The children get very excited when they win a Swagbuck and eagerly watch the toolbar to see how the total grows. I invited Bryan and my mom to sign-up, and as they earn Swagbucks, my total number increases.
Check out Swagbucks and start earning giftcards or other fun prizes!
