Swag Bucks: The Easy Way

A couple years ago, I used the Swag Bucks search option every time I needed to Google something. For some unknown reason, I didn't keep it up. I'd completely forgotten about my Swag Bucks account until today, when r/beermoney, a subreddit about easy ways to make small cash, was featured on r/subredditoftheday.

Hmmm, well, let's try this out again. Couldn't hurt. I logged into my Swag Bucks account to find that I had almost 500 Swag Bucks! I immediately cashed in 400SB for a $25 giftcard which we'll be using at the Portofino's! Pretty sweet.

Well I've discovered a couple ways to make some quick and easy Swag Bucks

1) Daily Polls - This take about 2 seconds to answer a simple question. You get 1 Swag Bucks

2) NOSO - These are various opportunities, coupons, survey companies. You can click through and after viewing all the offers you will earn 2 Swag Bucks

3) SwagTV - Have this running while you do something else, like redditing. Or blogging. Or tending to your cows in Cowville. Play through 10 short videos (I usually just play through the entertainment/celebrity gossip videos). Afterwards, you will earn 3 Swag Bucks. You can do this multiple times. I've yet to reach a point where it no longer awards me Swag Bucks.
The Swag Bucks meter will fill as you watch the videos

4) Invite & Earn - Invite one friend to Swag Bucks each day to earn 1 Swag Bucks

5) Trusted Surveys - I haven't actually done a Trusted Survey yet, but just completing your profile can earn about 30 Swag Bucks . There are multiple profile areas to complete, some are terribly short (the Parenting profile was only two or three questions for me, but it was worth 4 Swag Bucks ) and some are quite long (the Beauty profile took me forever because I use so many different products and different brands).

6) Search - This might be the easiest way to earn Swag Bucks for someone who performs regular internet searches. In the photo above, you can see the Swag Bucks search bar at the very bottom. This allows you to use the Swag Search without installing a toolbar. I hate toolbars, they clutter up your browser, but they're also terribly convenient.

If you're interested in earning some easy giftcards or other prizes, you should totally try out Swag Bucks and I'd love it if you'd use my referral link! Also, you get 30 bucks just for signing up!
