Does Swagbucks Work?

If you are reading this article, I am assuming already that you know what Swagbucks is, and just want to know does it work. However, on the off-chance you have stumbled upon this article some other way, I will give a brief introduction to it now.

What Is Swagbucks

Quite simply, swagbucks is a search engine that pays you to search. Sounds good doesn't it? It is. Instead of using Google, Yahoo, Bing, or another search engine, you switch to using the SB toolbar for your searches, and they occasionally award you "swagbucks" which can be redeemed for things such as amazon gift cards, mp3s and even more prizes.

What this means is, instead of searching on the internet for information like you normally would, you instead get paid to do the same searches, and you still receive the same search results. Don't get me wrong, it is not an inferior search engine. They get paid by companies to get you to do this, and they share those earnings with you.

While you cannot redeem swagbucks for real cash, the incentives are still high, and well worth looking at.

Getting Paid For Doing Nothing Extra

Of course, most people claim earnings of around $1000 or higher per year, which is not a great amount for most people, but remember this, you are doing nothing extra! Just searching the web as usual, and getting a nice annual bonus. (You can spend your swagbucks anytime, but I think a nice $1000 payout come Christmas time is excellent)

The key to this is to simply sign-up, forget about the money, and cash out once a year or every few months. If you want to earn a full-time income from searching the Internet, well, it's just not possible, but you can certainly get a nice extra income for doing nothing extra.

Cash Out Every Month, Or Hold On To It

As I have just said, my strategy is to just hold onto it for the end of the year, and receive a big amazon payout, but there are some who manage to cash out $25 or so every month. Imagine shopping on Amazon every month or couple of months for free? What a lot of potential!

Other Ways To Earn Swagbucks

Searching the web is not the only way to earn swagbucks, but it is the easiest, as you are doing it everyday anyway. There are some guides available that will tell you how to earn swagbucks fast, but for now the main thing for you to know is that yes, Swagbucks is legitimate and yes it does work.

Thank you for your feedback about Swagbucks. Sometimes I have had disappointing experiences with other web search companies. They wanted me to visit specific websites, and some of them were related to gambling. I am not interested in gambling.
