Currently, the only reward site I find most useful is SWAGBUCKS! What is Swagbucks? Swagbucks is a reward site that awards points (for various reasons…see below) that you can redeem for prizes and even cash! I personally have received a $10 Starbucks gift card and $5 cash! It adds up quickly! During times of crisis you can also donate your points to various relief organizations. I think I must have giving away thousands and thousands of points after the Japan earthquake.
There are many ways to earn points:
* Searching the web
If yours is a winning search, you will see a “Congratulations” screen featuring your Swag Bucks award immediately above your search results; you will never be directed away from your search. You can win multiple Swag Bucks every day; Swag Bucks can be won in denominations ranging from 1 – 1,000.
* Taking Surveys
Each survey that you chose to engage with may have a different Swag Bucks payout. Completing “deeper profiles” helps Swag Bucks alert you only to surveys for which you qualify and typically enables you to complete more targeted surveys, which have significantly higher Swag Bucks payouts. Snag 1 Swag Buck per day just for heading over to the Survey page!
* Voting in Daily Polls
Snag 1 Swag Buck per day for voting in the daily poll.
* Watching videos
Swag Bucks are awarded randomly via Swag Bucks TV. Not every video you watch will earn you Swag Bucks, but just like Swag Bucks search, every video you watch is a chance to earn.
* Completing Special Offers
To ensure that an offer has been completed, follow the instructions provided for each individual offer. The offer needs be completed in the same session and all information required to complete the offer MUST be accurate. The majority of offers will credit your Swag Bucks account within 20 minutes. However, the estimated wait time varies from offer to offer. Some may take a few hours or a couple of days before final confirmation is received.
