I have been using Swagbucks to earn gift cards since 2010–I guess you could call me a longtime Swaggernaut. One thing I love about Swagbucks is how it is continuously evolving. They don’t stick to the same old, same old. At Swagbucks, they continually add new ways to earn points and take other ones away.
Sometimes I am sad to see a few of my favorite ways to earn SB points fall by the wayside, but generally I like the new ways to earn SB points just as much, if not better.
My new favorite is the SwagButton; I think it has been around for a while, but I am not exactly known for being the first to try new things (look at my blog name, it should suggest that).
Five ways the SwagButton can help you earn gift cards faster
1. Alerts You To CashBack Opportunities
If you shop online at all, this reason alone should be enough to stop what you are doing right now and go and download the SwagButton to your browser toolbar. Cash back opportunities from Swagbucks can result in some serious SB points. Don’t miss out on the SB points you deserve–make sure to have the SwagButton up and running. I use the chrome version, but I believe they have it for most of the popular search engines.
2. Allows You To Search And Possibly Earn SB Points
If you are like me and you have grown to love the Google search engine over the search engine that Swagbucks offers points on, then you are missing out on regularly earning SB points for something you do every day for free. One way to get them back is to use the SwagButton search option at least when you are looking up something simple. For instance, I do my work searches with Google, but if I am looking up a popular recipe, I will use the SwagButton search option to see if I might earn some SB points while preparing to make dinner.
3. Makes Watching ToolbarTV Clips For SB Points More Convenient
If you can handle videos running in one area of your laptop screen while you are working in another, then earning SB points from the ToolbarTV tab offered as part of the SwagButton is a good option for you. You can turn the volume way down and earn points as the videos play in the background. The SB meter towards the top of the tab will chart your progress and add SB points to your Swagbucks account as you earn them.
4. Notifies You Of Available Swag Codes
This is how I am using the toolbar to earn more SB points. Before downloading the SwagButton for Chrome, I rarely remembered to look for Swag Codes. Now the SwagButton not only alerts me that a Swag Code is available, but also gives me a link to follow to go directly to the code where I can then copy and paste the code into the place for it built into the SwagButton. You can’t get much simpler than that–awesome, Swagbucks!
5. You Can Set The SwagButton To Notify You When A New Survey Becomes Available
I will be honest; I don’t have this feature turned on. Right now in my life I don’t have time to fill out surveys all that often so I don’t want to be alerted when new ones are available. However, if you love doing surveys, turning this option on would be a great way to earn more SB points as you would be able to jump on new survey opportunities as soon as they are released.
One More Feature Of The SwagButton That I Like
6. Makes It Easy To Keep Track Of Your Earnings
There is just something about the thrill of watching my SB points get higher and higher until I can finally cash out for a gift card. So I like that when you click on the SwagButton, you can see your points displayed on the bottom of the tab.
I cash out my Swagbucks earnings for either Amazon gift cards or PayPal gift cards (the second option being a way to earn legit cash you can spend on whatever you want). What do you like cashing your SB points out for? Share in the comments below.
