Earn Gift Cards While You Search the Web or Check Your Email

Posted by Lisa

If you haven’t heard of Swagbucks by now, here’s how it works.  It’s so simple!

1. Search the web using Swagbucks.com and receive results from Google and Ask.com (Swagbucks is a search engine powered by Google & Ask.com).  Every time you search, just use swagbucks!

2. Swag Bucks are periodically awarded as you search the web.

3. Redeem your Swag Bucks for products/gift cards.

I consider myself computer illiterate.  I can do what I need to and that’s about it.  Learning to blog has been a nightmare for me (my husband has taught me everything), but that’s a story for another time.  I’m just letting you know that in case you’re like me, and don’t have a clue when it comes to the computer, you can actually do this.

There are other ways to earn Swag Bucks – like shopping online through their site, etc.  Just get on the site and look around.

On average you can usually make about $5/month in gift cards just doing what you always do-searching.  Every little bit helps.  In fact, this little nugget of information is part of my “Cashless Christmas 2010″ plan.  I don’t think I can completely do it this year, but hope to next year and every year thereafter.

Another little nugget helping me along is MyPoints.  Earn points by clicking on emails (no unwanted spam).

I’m taking this computer income (through gift cards) one step at a time because 1. I don’t have a ton of time to spend on the computer and 2. I’m a dinosaur and don’t like learning new things (on the computer) very much.  That said, I am moving forward.

I’m learning from the master.  I’ve mentioned studying her blog if you’re interested in earning income at home, on your computer.  She is the author of the blog MoneySaving Methods.  There are many blogs who copy her info, but truly, she’s the queen!
