A New Way To Save in the New Year

Happy New Year everyone!

Recently we had a post about ways to cut costs, save money, and it made me realize I wanted to post about how I saved a lot of money last year just doing what I normally do while on the computer. During my normal day when using search engines on the computer, I used the Swag Bucks search engine first for my searches. By doing this I won swagbucks, which are basically imaginary money/points that you can then trade in for real things, such as merchandise, gift cards, etc.

Last year with only using the search engine a few times a day for minimal amounts of time, I was able to earn enough swagbucks to get $300 in gift cards. It didn't take me any longer to use the computer than I was already spending. It didn't cost me a thing to do it, and I "earned" $300 cash money that I then used when I was doing my christmas shopping.

If you haven't heard of swagbucks, I suggest you try it out. If you have heard of it, but aren't using it actively, I suggest you start. Why not save/make money while you are doing the things you already do.

It really does work and work well. I wasn't a believer until it worked for me. Hopefully it can work for you in 2011 as well. Every little bit helps.


  1. Wow Jen I didn't realize you were able to get so much. I started using them just recently because of something you said about them. :)

  2. I was really skeptical about it at first Danae. A friend of mine told me about them and I was like "yea right"... I really didn't believe it. I decided to try it for a month, and in that first month, I earned 2 gift cards. There are so many things you can convert your swagbucks to, be it gift cards or merchandise, that I now fully believe in using it all the time for any searches etc. I like when I earn the swagbucks, makes me feel like a little bit of a lotto winner every time I convert the swagbucks to giftcards :) My hope this year is to earn enough in swagbucks to surpass last year's earnings via gift cards.
