Often times I begin to feel like a broken record here on TFF, but I have to remind myself there are new people stopping in every day.  I can’t speak highly enough of Swagbucks and how seriously easy it is to earn enough bucks to redeem for some serious rewards! Since I started using Swagbucks 2 years ago, I’ve redeemed 74 prizes!

What can you get?

I’ve redeemed for everything from paypal cash, amazon credits, starbucks gift cards, and even my shiny iPhone!

Is it really that easy to earn them?

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?

As an added idea, you could subscribe to the All You Magazine for only $1.66 per month through Amazon, and get it FREE with your Swagbucks!

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
$10 Starbucks Gift Card 1300 Swagbucks $1 value = 130 Swagbucks
$5 Paypal credit 700 Swagbucks $1 value = 140 Swagbucks

    Yes, you can combine them in your Amazon account and use as many at a time as you’d like. There is a limit of how many you can redeem through Swagbucks per day/month though.

    I was wondering if the Restaurant.com giftcard is a good deal? It seems like it would make sense to do that and you can get a lot more gift cards to eat out at a fraction of the price when they had the extra codes?!?! Does this make sense or am I missing something?

    • says

      This restaurant.com certificate cannot be combined with the deal codes so I don’t think it’s a good deal, since $2 will also get you a $25 certificate.

    I signed up for Swagbucks the last time I saw your post, but I’m not getting a lot of swagbucks (its been a slow accumulation). Are there some tips and tricks you can share? Thanks!

    My daughter and I are saving up for a big item on Amazon. Can we combine our gift cards? Also what is the limit we can use for one purchase?

    • says

      You can combine your gift cards, it’s just a code that Swagbucks gives you to enter into the Amazon account of your choice. You can accrue as many as you’d like and use them all together or in portions – it keeps a running balance for you.
