How to Earn Free Gift Cards or Cash with Swagbucks.

Swagbucks is a free rewards program; that lets you earn “points called SB.”
I signed up for Swagbucks in 2012. At first I was very skeptical if it would work and if it was worth my time. But as it turns out, it’s absolutely the best rewards program I have ever joined. Below, I will explain why and how it works.
First, it is completely free, and there are no costs and No Obligations (view my earned prizes below : lol: )
And best of all, it does not take any extra time since I am using my computer or Swagbucks phone app every day for surfing the internet.

There are many more ways to collect points (scroll down to read on)

What Is Swagbucks and How does it work?

Swagbucks is a Search Engine just like Google or Yahoo.
The difference is that Swagbucks will PAY YOU to use their search page.
Just type the keywords you are searching for into the browser, and you may win points. Each time you win, you will receive a message, as shown in the picture below. “Congratulations, You have won x points ….”
That’s the reason I love using Swagbucks. In my experience, it is the best Canadian Rewards program. There is no need to purchase anything to collect points.
It is easy and just for searching the Internet you can receive gift cards just like I do.
Swagbucks is completely free and without any obligations, and there are no credit cards required at all.

swagbucks search 14 points

How will you get paid ?

  1. First: You are earning points, so called SB, which are digital points.
  2. Each time you search you have the chance to win instant SB
  3. You can also do daily polls (answer 1 question) and get 1 SB per Day (view more ways to collect Points below). I do this every day.
  4. Keep collecting points and then redeem them for FREE gift cards or Paypal Cash.

P.S. read on below, there are more FREE ways to earn points.

I use the search bar during the day and normally win 3-5 times,  an average of 7 -15 points each time!

Doing this daily really adds up fast. Remember to download the mobile Swagbucks phone app after you join and you can earn points while searching on your phone.

Remember to immediately install and USE the toolbar to start collecting points.

Not a fan of Toolbars?  That’s not a problem either. Simply use the official Swagbucks Plugin, which is easy to install, and Internet Explorer friendly. The toolbar is best, but the Plugin is a great alternative.

Is Swagbucks Toolbar safe:

Since someone posted a concern about Swagbucks and questioning if the site was safe I
visited McAfee Safe search to look up the Report and they gave swagbucks a “green light”
Swagbucks received the standard thumbs up with the standard message:
We tested this site and didn’t find any significant problems.
When we visited this site, we found that most of its links are to sites which are safe or have only minor safety/annoyance issues.
To compare this to websites like Sears Canada,Bell Canada or any major reputable sites,you will get the exact same answer.
You could try it here to see for yourself :http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/sears.ca


Personally I have the toolbar installed for over a year and never had any problems.
Unless you consider collecting free Amazon  gift cards a hassle (Hahaha !)   🙂

  1. Bon service

  2. Wendy, please read the article on how to earn free points.

    The points add up fast if you do the suggested tasks, search, poll, swagcodes, watch tv, etc.

    I have earned hundreds and lately I have been using Swagbucks for Holiday shopping because the cashback is better than ebates.

    My tip is to install the swag button, it’s a must to get alerts about active codes.!
