I have been so busy with ptc I never really noticed this site. For one I do tons of searches on the internet, why not get something for my time? I also shop on the net. I guess what turned me away from this site is all the good stuff you need millions of points!!! Ok so honestly, who has ever gotten a real prize from swagbucks?

Have been a member there for about a month and have approximately 100 Swag Bucks. I have redeemed 45 for an Amazon.com Gift Card. You're not going to make much there other than some nice perks for searching - which you would otherwise do for nothing.

I was thinking the same thing on the search issue. But did you see the first comment above? Apparently you have to search for hours for a few swags. I dont mind saving up points if I thought it was worth my time. The site looks so professional. Oh well, maybe another time. Perhaps they will increase the swags in the future.

You do not need to waste your time searching for hours. The average amount of swagbucks you will make a day is about 2. You will earn one usually the first few times your search. When you earn your swagbuck, stop searching. You do not earn more swagbucks just by searching a lot. You want to wait a few hours every time you search. On average, you will earn about 1-5 swagbucks for a search. You can earn up to 1000 swagbucks on mega swag days. There is something called swag codes that are like passwords that you can enter on the site to redeem swag bucks. You can usually find these daily on the swag bucks blog, widget, toolbar, or newsletter. You can also earn more swagbucks by trading in your old cell phones or video games, submitting a poll, or completing surveys. You technique that I use that gets me the MOST swagbucks would probably be referrals. When you refer someone to swagbucks, the person you referred will earn 3 swagbucks and you will earn a swagbuck for each swagbuck that your referral makes. The maximum you can make per referral is 100 swagbucks. If you refer 7 people and each of them earn 100 swagbucks, then you have just earned yourself 700 swagbucks. As you can see, it is quite easy to earn swag bucks. Sign up under http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/NeoTR4N/ to start off swagbucks with 3 swagbucks. I have a post on my blog that provides much more information about swagbucks that can be found here: http://nelsonblogs.com/make-money-online/swagbucks-search-and-win/ I hope I was able to help you. I really recommend that you disregard the other posts. I make a few hundred swagbucks a month. It is really easy to earn swagbucks.

Neotr4n, you had me convinced until you put the referral link in this post. They are not allowed ever in any posts. Thanks for info though. I will remember your name if I ever decide to join. Not sure if this discussion will remain here now.

I am a member and have been for about 8 months. I am just up to 250 swagbucks. You do not earn for every search, only about 1 swagbuck for every couple of hours of searching. I honestly have not found anything that I can say that I want to spend mine on, nothing in that small of an amount. I guess that is why I am not a faithful searcher on this site.

Appreciate the honesty. Thats exactly what I am looking for. Perhaps its one of those sites that you check in from time to time and see how many bucks you have. Just slow earnings huh.....

When I get to 70 Swagbucks, I order a $5 Paypal card. I don't know what happened to the last one I ordered, but then, I was sort of moving around a lot, so I can see how it would have gotten lost. I just hit 70 again, so I ordered another one. I stopped using Swagbucks because they stopped the pay system. Seems they're using it again. I checked because I'm thinking of getting back into ways of making money online. Hope it all goes well with you. BTW The paypal card will be shipped to me. I guess it would be nice if it were strictly online stuff, but whatev.
