Swagbucks is a search engine that pays you to use their site. The more you surf the Internet the more points you earn. There is no cost to sign up, and when you register you’ll receive 30 Swagbucks.
Simply use Swagbucks as your web browser rather than Google, Yahoo or any other browser. Every so often you will be rewarded with Swagbucks. Prizes are also awarded randomly and the amount will vary. You’ll know which searches generated points as you will see a banner above your search which tells you the number of points you’ll receive.
Many users opt to download the Swag tool bar as it contains a counter which tracks your Swag points and a search box.
You won’t make an instant fortune with Swag, however, points do add up over time. It’s nice to have the option to get paid for something you would normally do anyway!

So Just Who Is The Swag “Guy” Anyway?
The Swag Guy runs Swagbucks and has additional ways for you to earn Swagbucks. Fridays are Mega Swagbucks Days. You have the opportunity to earn 30 or more Swagbucks per search. So plan to do a lot of searching on Fridays to cash in on over 450,000 Swagbucks given away by the Swagbucks team.
What make Swagbucks so different is they’re willing to share some of the revenue they earn from advertisements on their site with their users. It’s their way of spreading the wealth.
In my research I didn’t find any negative feedback about Swagbucks whatsoever. In fact, some parents who couldn’t otherwise afford to purchase Christmas or Birthday gifts for their children are using their Swagbucks to bring joy to their children on these special occasion. A few members reported earning enough Swag points to pay for all their birthday and Christmas gifts.
All in all, Swagbucks is a great way to generate an income (of sorts) online without doing too much in return. It’s never going to earn you a full time income, but the team here at Work From Watchdog think it’s a great little earner!
