I'm sure you've heard the word Swagbucks by now or vaguely know what it is but turn your nose up to using it. I use it because it is a free search engine powered by Google and it earns me FREE Amazon Gift Cards! There's no catch! Seriously. Read on to start earning free Amazon Gift Cards too!
Welcome to my Swagbucks Tutorial!! Since March 2009, I've earned $400 in FREE Amazon Gift Cards by trading in my earned Swag Bucks. Although I prefer cashing in my Bucks for Amazon, there are HUNDREDS of items you can choose to spend YOUR Bucks on!
What is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is a Google-Powered Search Engine that earns you points or Swagbucks just for searching. Although you don't earn Bucks for every Search, I usually win at least 10 per day by searching. These Bucks accumulate until you are ready to buy something from the Swag Store!
What is the Catch?
There is no catch. Swagbucks will not spam you. I've been using it since 2009 and there is no catch. I earn my Bucks by searching, then trade them in for items at the Swag Store. They either get e-mailed to me or sent to my home. No catch. Really happens!
Will my Email Get Spammed?
Absolutely not! I only receive the Swagbucks Newsletter once a month, and that's because I subscribed to it. I've never received anything else.

What is the Easiest Way to Find the Swag Codes?
1. Follow SBCodez. It's a site that must have a computer program that follows all SB codes. They post them hourly and daily. Follow their site and their Twitter feed.How Do I Earn MAJOR Bucks?
Invite your friends! It's as simple as that. When you invite a friend, you win up to 1,000 Swag Bucks as they Earn Bucks! You are able to invite them directly from Facebook or by Email, but I suggest you send out a blast from your personal email. Some friends have said the Swagbucks invite emails go directly to their Spam Folders.
What are Swag Codes?
Swag Codes are either Words or Riddles to Solve that earn you a specified amount of Bucks. You have to be on the lookout for these. In my opinion, the easiest way to find these is to download the Swidget to your blog & check that often. It will tell you if there is a code, and where that code is, whether on Twitter, the Facebook Page etc. Once you get a code, type it into your box, then press Gimme. If you want to cheat (like I sometimes do) this site will always tell you when a Swag Code exists. :)
How do I Cash in my Bucks?
1. Shop the Swag Store for an item of your choice. There are prices on each item. For example, I always buy the $5 Amazon gift cards. Those are 450 Swag Bucks each.
2. You may also "buy" chances to win a Swagstakes. These are like Sweepstakes. Enter as many times as you want.
Always remember, you're earning FREE points to trade in for FREE stuff. You don't have to use some of the earning tools if you don't want to!
