Savings Websites: Swagbucks Review

Hello everyone,freemoney

PSA Savers! Who doesn’t love earning points for things you already do? I’m an avid couponer, rebate app aficionado, and deal scavenger, but I cringe when it comes to web-browser plug ins.

Ebates Coupons and Cash BackAfter years of “thinking about it,” I finally signed up for Ebates, and yes, it has saved me over $100 without any additional effort on my part. So why did I wait so long? Well, fool me once I suppose…. I recently learned about Swagbucks—a very similar platform to Ebates—but with even more ways to save, and I didn’t hesitate.

Swagbucks allows you to earn points called SB. These points can be redeemed for merchandise or gift cards. (Tip: Each month you can cash in 2,200 points for a $25.00 Amazon gift card; additional $25 Amazon gift cards will cost 2,500). For a limited time, you can earn 2,500 points if you sign up for Hulu ($7.99/mo). You could opt to cancel Hulu after a few weeks…. Or look at it this way, it’s three months of Hulu for free. Either way, it takes about 5 minutes to make $25.


So how does Swagbucks stack up?
In just 10 days, I’ve earned $45.00 in Amazon gift cards. Honestly, I’ve ‘passively’ spent about an hour a day on the site clicking through surveys while wathcing late night television. For reference, it’s taken  more than a year to earn $100 using Ebates.


Need another reason to give Swagbucks a try? If you join using my referral you can earn up to $5.00 just for signing up! Happy savings!
