Print Coupons, Save Money, Earn Swagbucks!

Have you heard of SwagBucks.com? It’s an online portal that allows you to accumulate points, or Swag Bucks, by doing the things you usually do on the internet including using a search engine, playing games, and–our favorite–couponing! Once you have enough Swag Bucks, you can redeem them for thousands of different items. It’s really pretty simple.
First, you will need to register at SwagBucks.com. Register using your name, birthday, and location–no credit cards necessary! One caveat, though, is that you must be from the US, the UK, or Canada to register. Once you’ve successfully registered and verified your account, you are automatically awarded 30 Swag Bucks! Refer friends for the chance to earn more Swag Bucks. When you refer a friend, you earn the same amount of Swag Bucks they do.
You can earn Swag Bucks several different ways including using their search engine, filling out surveys, and playing games, but I’m going to focus on what all of you do already: couponing! Using SwagBucks you can search and print coupons for groceries, household items, personal care items, and more. Once you use these coupons at your grocery store you will earn Swag Bucks. Each coupon you print and use will earn you 10 Swag Bucks. Not bad!
Once you have earned a good amount of Swag Bucks you can redeem them in the Swag Store or in Swagstakes. In the Swag Store you can get gift cards, toys, electronics, school supplies, and a ton of other great items. There are plenty of testimonials about people who have really had success with Swag Bucks.
So what can you reasonably earn? I’m going to crunch some (hypothetical) numbers for you:
- 30 SB for registering
- 90 SB for referring three friends
- 40 SB for printing and redeeming 4 coupons
That gives you a total of 160 Swag Bucks. You’re well on your way to a $5 Amazon gift card (450 SB). Admittedly, some of the redeeming prices seem pretty steep, but if you use SwagBucks often enough it will pay off. Besides, you’re couponing anyways. Why not get “paid’ for it?
