I have had a few question about swagbucks. You really do earn gift cards. I just redeemed (2) $5 amazon cards. When you place the amazon cards into your amazon account, they NEVER expire. You have that amount of money in your account. So is you have a $10.00 cd you are buying and you have $10 in your account, guess what it is paid for!!!
I love swagbucks. You earn them just by downloading swagbucks toolbar and making searches. You won't when on every search but, you will probably win about 30 -50 swagbucks a day. Plus you can do other things on the swagbuck website to earn even more swagbucks.
Some days there are hidden swagbucks that I will try to tell you about and earn even more. It is fun and you know what it is free money!!!
You can earn bonus Swag Bucks just by browsing the special offers section every day!

Swag Codes are bonus codes that you enter in the “Enter Your Swag Code” box on Swagbucks.com’s home page. When I know that there is a Swag Code out, I try to post it on my blog and facebook page!
Twice a month Swagbucks sends out a newsletter. These have a bonus Swag Code in them. To make sure you get the newsletter, you need to go to Swagbucks.com and click on Newsletter on the left side menu. It is almost the last item.
Submit a Poll to Swag Bucks
Swag Bucks has a weekly poll. If you submit a topic and they use it, they will reward you with bonus Swag Bucks! You will find the Polls on the left hand menu of SwagBucks.com

Refer your friends
Swag Bucks has an awesome referral program. Refer your friends to Swag Bucks and when they win by searching, you win the same amount! (That means if your friend searches and wins 20 Swag Bucks, you will get 20 Swag Bucks too!
You only win from their searches and there is a limit of 1000 Swag Bucks per referral.
After they reach 1000 Swag Bucks, you will no longer receive credit.)
There is no limit to how many friends you can refer.
To find your referral link, go to Swagbucks.com and click on promote and then select Invite Friends and Earn.
And the best part… Cashing in for prizes!
My absolute favorite prize is the Amazon.com gift card. They offer 3 different denominations ($5, $25 and $50. $5 is the best value, followed by $50 and then $25).
You can get 5 of each a month. You are limited to only requesting 2 prizes a day, so to max out on Amazon gift card it takes 7.5 days.
Here’s how it works:
On Swagbucks.com home page, click on Rewards. Then select Swag Store. Then click on Rewards and Gift Cards. Look for the Amazon.com gift cards. Select the one you want and click redeem. You will have to verify your purchase via email.
Swagbucks says they post the gift cards on the 16th and 30th of the month. But that is not always the case. If the date falls on a weekend or there is a holiday, it will be delayed.
When you receive your gift card codes, here is how to add them to your Amazon.com account.
Go to Amazon.com. Click on Your Account in the top right corner.
Look for Gift Cards located in the Payment box.Select this option: Apply a Gift Certificate/Card to Your Account. You will see a box that says “Want to redeem a new gift card?”
Enter the code that Swag Bucks gave you for the gift card and click Redeem Now.
That gift card is now stored in your account as a balance. You can store as many gift cards as you want, it just adds them to the balance.
When you check out, it automatically applies your gift card balance to your order. (You can select for it not to).
Try it!! Just go here to signup!
