What are Swagbucks and how do you earn them?
Swagbucks is a form of “internet currency” that you earn by simply searching the web and participating in surverys and offers (if you choose to). You can then redeem your Swagbucks for prizes such as paypal cash, amazon credit, starbucks gift cards, etc. Trust me when I say – you should SIGN UP! Swagbucks almost paid for our entire Christmas last year, and a couple of years back I was able to get a FREE iPhone by saving up my Swagbucks to redeem for an Apple Store gift card.
How and when should I spend them?
I do suggest you treat your Swagbucks like you would your budget, make the most of every buck and spend them wisely! With that said, I asked Mr. Frugal to help me figure out just which deals (out of my top 5 favorites) had the best bang for their buck. Basically, what should I save up for first and in what order should I buy them?
He came up with the following chart…
|$5 Amazon.com credit||450 Swagbucks||$1 value = 90 swagbucks|
|$20 Target.com Gift Card||2350 Swagbucks||$1 value = 117.5 Swagbucks|
|$50 Amazon.com credit||5900 Swagbucks||$1 value = 118 Swagbucks|
|$5 Starbucks Gift Card||635 Swagbucks||$1 value = 127 Swagbucks|
|$5 Paypal credit||700 Swagbucks||$1 value = 140 Swagbucks|
