Yay! $30 in FREE Amazon Gift Cards!

I've talked about Swagbucks before, but I feel I need to bring this up again cause I'm just loving them soooo much right now. Really. I love em.

Swag what??? Swagbucks. It's an internet search engine just like Google and Yahoo, among others. And it pulls search results from Google and Ask.com. So you're getting good results and it's not a waste of your time like some others.

BUT, when you use Swagbucks to do your searches, you are awarded points, called Swagbucks. I usually end up getting 1 or 2 Swagbucks per day, sometimes 5... although they do award much higher amounts... I just haven't gotten that lucky yet. (But hey, it's a free program that pays me to use it. I'm not complaining!) You then turn your Swagbucks into FREE gift cards and other items.

Sounds too good to be true, I know. But seriously, it's not! I've been using Swagbucks since about June or so of this year, I started out slow, not remembering to use it much. But then in August, I had enough points (45) to cash in for a $5 Amazon.com gift card. And I've been hooked ever since. So far, I've earned $30 in Amazon gift cards, with enough Swagbucks for another one coming up soon!

The gift card codes are easily stacked together at Amazon and I've used them towards Christmas presents. And if you don't use the entire balance at once, Amazon holds the balance in your account. Nice. And super convenient!
Oh, and even though I'm going on and on about my Amazon gift cards, they have tons of other gift cards to Target and other stores. I just love Amazon's deals and free shipping, so that's what I get.

Oh, and another bonus feature of Swagbucks, when you sign up, they give you a referral link so you can refer your friends or put a button on your blog or Facebook or whatever. Then every time one of your referrals gets Swagbucks, you get that same amount too! So easy to rack up the points quickly!
