    I posted this down in E&P but thought it was worth posting here. I earn an average of $10 a month in Amazon gift cards and it only takes a few minutes a day on the computer.

    Sign up here:
    http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/BillandPam

    How I earn my daily Swagbucks:
    I get all of my points from doing random searches 4 times a day....morning, afternoon, evening and then before I go to bed. That averages me 30-40 swagbucks a day. Then I earn 10 points from playing the games, 5 points a day from watching swagtv, 1 swagbuck from the daily poll, and 1 from clicking 'skip' through the NOSO offers. Then I usually find the 2 point ads on Gambit to watch a couple of times a week. They also put out random swag codes and those earn anywhere from 4-11 swagbucks a day. A $5 Amazon gift card is 450 Swagbucks. So it averages out to nearly a .01 a swagbucks point. But there are a TON of other options for you to choose from to spend your swagbucks on besides just Amazon.
    I do not fill out any of the surveys because they require a phone number and email address and I do not want spammed otherwise I am sure I would earn twice as many swagbucks in a day.

    Searches: Use if just like you do Google search. If you are on the swagbucks homepage you just do random searches like "homesteading today", "Emergency preparedness", "couponing", "where can I find the best deal on oil lamps", "Swagbucks blog", or "swagbucks tricks"....anything! The more random the better. If you do not get swagbucks on your first search randomly hit the search again a few times (not to fast or you will get the TOS page up for spamming...make it random) and if you still do not get anything change your search word. I have only been able to get them 4 times a day. Sometimes if I do several searches and get no points I go to something else for about 5-10 minutes, sometimes closing out of the swagbucks page, then go back to it and I will get it on my first search when I come back.
    Codes: Also you need to LIKE swagbucks blog on Facebook and that is where the notification for the codes will be posted. Codes are given randomly. You can also download the toolbar and it gives random codes and swagbucks as well.

    On the swagtv you have to watch the videos all the way through in order to see your meter on the top right go up by 5% at a time. After 100% you will earn 5 Swagbucks. You can watch videos all day if you want to and earn 5% at a time.

    On the games: I have to play two games, watching the commercial thing all the way through first, play the game...GO BACK TO GAMES....then pick another game and do the same thing over again until I earn my 10 points. I usually get 2 swagbucks after every two games.

    Fridays are Mega Swagbucks days and you have a chance of getting greater amounts of swagbucks on your random searches. I got a 28 once. Normally I get between 7-11 swagbucks on each of my daily searches.

    I have earned $45 so far and my cousin has earned close to $70 in Amazon gift cards. No strings attached! No downloading anything you don't want to.
    Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions!!

    This is a reminder that Fridays are Mega Swagbucks day and you have a chance of getting greater amounts of swagbucks on your searches all day today so remember to try to do searches 3-4 times today...think every four hours. So I find it works best for me to pop on and do a search at breakfast, lunch, and dinner time then once more before I head off to bead.

    I'm a pretty new swagbucks user, just getting the hang of it. Question: you do random searches on things you're not actively searching for? Just guesses to try to earn bucks?

    Both....search for things you are interested in and do random searches for things you are not actively looking for.
    I use Swagbucks in place of Google for searching AND to earn the swagbucks points! My goal with swagbucks is to earn the swagbucks! I bookmarked swagbucks so when I want to do a regular search I go to their page or you can make it your homepage.

    I also wanted to say that I do NOT get spammed with emails and stuff because I do not fill out the surveys. The ONLY emails I get from swagbucks are the verification emails for the gift cards I redeem.

    Sometimes I will complete the Daily Poll as well....that is worth 1 swagbuck each time.

    If you and your hubby live in the same household you may want to read the TOS. I believe I read that it is only ONE account per household. I would suggest sharing the same account.
    My cousin shares with her husband and they both do the random searches and watch swagtv on different computers on the same account at the same time.

    When you get a referral you earn swagbucks when they earn them only from their searches up to 1000 swagbucks.

    Found the TOS:
    "There are multiple people in our home. Can we each have our own account?
    We are very firm on our one account per household policy. You are more than welcome to share what we call a "family" account, but please do not create more than one account within the same household as this will result in deactivation."

    I just joined a few days ago and have received over 500 bucks. Most of those came from doing the profile surveys and also the other surveys. I have a junk e-mail account set up just for stuff like that. That way my regular e-mail doesn't get filled with tons of crap. As for the phone number, I transpose the last 4 numbers, so I don't get calls either LOL

    I use Google chrome and it is not compatible but from what I can tell you should be able to get more points with it. I am pretty sure you get at least one swagbuck a day from it and when they put out the codes sometimes they are only in the toolbar so I have missed out on some of the swagbucks from those codes.

    Thanks for signing up under me! :bouncy:

    I did the toolbar, I use firefox. I also set up a gmail alert for "swag code" to email me at the addy I used to sign up. Hopefully that will bring in more codes that I may miss. LOL

    Wow, I am averaging about 40 swagbucks a day from searches! I do random
    searches until I get swagbucks four times a day though.

    My goal has been to get 100 swagbucks a day.
    40 from searches
    10 from games
    10 from videos
    2 from the poll and NOSO
    Some from the Codes
    10-20 from referrals

    I hit the videos just right, the cream cheese ones, and got to play them over 30 times at 2 points each! A couple of them even gave me 4 points!
    I am 20 SB away from another $5! I can do one more search for the night and the games so I am sure I will make it tonight!!
