Get Paid to Search with Swagbucks

I wanted to start highlighting some of the sites I mentioned in my Giving on a Budget posts. Some of them I am sure you have heard of, but hopefully one will catch your eye and be something that will help you earn a little extra cash.

One site I try to use regularly is Swagbucks. This is primarily a search and earn website, meaning when you use their search engine you have the chance to win bucks. These bucks accumulate in your account until you decide to use them to purchase something in the Swagstore. You can buy actual items or giftcards. My favorite is the $5 giftcard!

In addition to internet searching, Swagbucks also lets you earn bucks by taking polls and surveys, watching Swagbucks TV, playing games, entering Swagstakes, finding Swagcodes throughout the site (and on my Swidget at the bottom of my site) and a whole lot more. You can also earn a bunch of Swagbucks by referring others to the site. (So yes, if you sign up through the link in this post, you will be helping me earn Swag Bucks!)

Balanced Living Tip: This is the type of site that has potential to eat up your time. But you do not have to let it! I’ve learned there are a few methods of getting a few guaranteed Swag Bucks a day in just a couple minutes. Over time, these bucks added up and turned into multiple $5 gift cards.

There is another blog I follow called and she has outlined perfectly all the ways you can earn Swag Bucks. She did a great job, so I don’t mind referring you to her site! Click HERE for her Swagbucks series.

Here are some tips of hers I plan to start following :
