I don't like giving my personal -- or business -- info out for spammers to use. Trust me -- I know what I'm talking about. Just by posting the business address on the Brickworks website, we get more than our share of goofy stuff.
But I DO like earning gift cards, just for doing the same wandering around and searches on the Internet that I normally would do.
That's why I'm a fan of Swagbucks.
This easy program lets you earn bonus points just for your regular work on the computer. You can also earn bonus points for shopping...for example, if you buy things on Ebay, you currently can earn up to 7 SB (or Swagbucks) points for every dollar you spend.
That may not sound like much, but it adds up -- and 2200 SB gets you a $25 gift card on Amazon.
They don't give out your info. (Something I really like.) You don't have to take advantage of any of the surveys or shopping deals they offer. (95% of the time, I don't.) And the extraneous stuff is easy to ignore. Sign on in the morning, and whenever you search, you have the chance to win extra SB.
We've been in the Swagbucks program for more than four years now, and have earned literally hundreds of dollars of Amazon gift cards. Which bought not only groceries and needed items, but videos, books and other specialty goodies.
Want to try this? They're running a special right now. Sign up, and you automatically qualify for a 300-point bonus...enough for a $3 gift card. (Use this link, and I get a little something, too.)
You won't regret it.
