First off, let me say that I am not affiliated with Swagbucks. I do not work for them, nor do I get paid by them to tell you this. Nor have I received anything free yet since I just joined up as well.
So what is Swagbucks? It's a search engine. That's it, just a search engine. But, the fun part, and it is fun by the way, is that by doing internet searches on their site, you can be paid "Swagbucks". And admit it, you're going to search the internet for something anyway, aren't you? When you get a certain amount of their "swagbucks" (a fancy word for points), you can redeem them for prizes. I'm going after the Amazon gift cards myself, or maybe the Paypal one.
Besides doing searches, you can get your friends to sign up and for every swagbuck they get, you get one too (up to 100, but that's it.) They also put out random swag codes that you can enter in and get more bucks for it. There are other ways to win as well, but you'll have to go over and investigate to find out.
This is a brilliant way for them to
Did I mention that it's "Free" to join? Just tell 'em that I sent ya! Yes, this is a gratuitous way to get you as a referrer. Pass the word along and you can get referrals too. ;)
Have a great weekend everybody! I'll have some knitting for you on Monday.
