I wanted some spare money on the side because you know having a family with a small child makes it hard to get spare money to do fun things. I swear I watch my paychecks just disappear into nothing in a matter of minutes. So My wife and I have been supplementing it for the past couple of years with www.Swagbucks.com
This isn't a paid promotion, this isn't a gimmick. This is mostly just trying to get people the information so you can all benefit from this too. Some of the information I have collected from www.reddit.com and have been using it to try and buy myself the new Nintendo Switch console! Probably need about $300 for that little guy, so might as well try and get it for free right?
Here is some of the basics of the site.
First it is free
Second it gives you the money back for seeing their ad placement. I don't pay for cable and I use ad blockers almost everywhere. That means I don't see ads when I don't want to. I get paid to see them. That is the point of swagbucks. I get the money back for the ads that could be shoved down my throat already. might as well earn off it right?
Okay to get started is easy just sign up under the following link
If you are looking for a non referral you can go directly to www.swagbucks.com and click signup. Attach it to your Facebook and find more friends. It's a super easy site to get setup with, now comes the tricky part. How do I earn?
I am going to tap into my reddit friends for this one. Original Author is Garwald
Swagbucks Guide 2016. Accurate as of November 1, 2016.
I will be giving a detailed guide, of the popular earning site Swagbucks.
This will be for the newbies who want to join in on the free giftcards, and for the veterans who are looking to maximize their earnings with minimal effort. Swagbucks points are called "SB" and will be used throughout the guide. As an example: 500 SB gets you a $5 giftcard.
I try to keep this as up-to-date as possible. If you notice something isn't, please let me know.
First, here is proof: http://imgur.com/a/VALpU
Regardless of how you sign up remember to enter sign up code "RSWAGBUCKS" for 70 free SB.
1.Use the Sign up code “RSWAGBUCKS” which is optional, but it will give you 70 free SB.
- The box to type this in doesn't show up unless you click “I have a sign up code (optional)” which is under the “Confirm Password” Box.
2.Just signing up will give you 4 SB. Now complete your profile, learn how you earn and Discover your rewards. That will give you 32 SB. This part is pretty self-explanatory. You can skip the tour, this rewards no SB.
3.Make sure to go to verify your account through your email, sooner is better than later.
4.Hover over “Answer" on the Swagbucks Bar at the top of the screen. Click on Surveys. Fill out the info to give you surveys better targeted toward you. Earn 1 SB for entering your age/gender and 1 SB for entering your birthday. Earn 2 SB for every 10 Survey Profile questions you answer (these are found on the right side of the screen).
5.Install the SwagButton to receive 50 SB.
