Are you swagging yet?

I mean, have you joined Swagbucks yet?

If you're not familiar with Swagbucks, you might look into it.

The way internet searches work- advertisers pay for higher placement in the food chain (um, search chain) for their sites to show up first. So Google or Yahoo, or MSN, or...whatever search engine you're using is getting paid by the advertisers to show those sites in a higher placement.

Instead of letting those guys get paid, why not earn some bucks yourself? Swagbucks took that idea and ran with it. There are loads of fun gifts you can earn, but the faves are the gift cards, Amazon being the top of the list. And a new item you can earn bucks for is "Paypal cash", so yes, real dollars.

I mainly use the Swagbucks search engine on my toolbar and earn a few bucks a day, nothing spectacular, but those babies do add up and I had quite a few Amazon gift cards at Christmas-time which I had saved to buy Christmas gifts. There's nothing like getting free money to buy gifts for your kids. :)

There are lots of other ways to earn Swagbucks if you have the time, and the site tells you all about it (and there are lots of bloggers swagging, so if you "swag it" you will find other codes and such you can input to get bucks). But I do HIGHLY recommend downloading and using the toolbar to search as that's a quick way to earn a few bucks a day.
