Earning PayPal $$ Easily with Swagbucks!

**I have lots of new listings for stamp sets for sale on my "Stamps for Sale - Updated" tab above!  Or you can click here.  Take a look if you have time!  Thanks!**

I haven't shared about earning with Swagbucks lately, so I decided to take a crafty break and give you some info on an easy way to earn PayPal gift cards (or other prizes/gift cards of your choice) just by searching the web like you currently do and/or performing other easy tasks.  I've earned quite a bit over the last few years I've been using this program.
Here's the info:

Have you signed up for Swagbucks?  In the last few years that I've been using this program, I've redeemed my points (mostly earned by searching the web) for $100's of dollars in PayPal gift cards! That is basically "free" money to use for my paper crafting hobby! :) 

If you haven't signed up yet, what are you waiting for?  LOL!!  Click here to sign up now:

CLICK HERE to sign up & look around!

I also want to share a few easy ways that I get points every day (and periodically too)!

Once you sign up there are MULTIPLE ways to earn swagbucks. 

1.  The first thing I usually do is find the "To Do" list that is located on the left side of the page.  You'll need to scroll down slightly to see it.  This is a list that includes multiple ways to earn swagbucks.

2.  The first task I do is click on the "Daily Poll" in the "to do" list.  This is so easy to do.  Answer the question with a click of a button and you earn an easy swagbuck point.  So, just by remembering to do this every day (you can do it from your phone too!), you'd earn 30 swagbucks a month.

3.  Go back to the "to do" list and click on "NOSO".  This will bring you to a set of special offers.  You can click "skip" or "see another offer" each time, usually you'll go through about 6 pages or so, and at the end you will enter a code for another 2 swagbucks.  (Now you've just doubled your monthly swagbuckss form 30 to 90 if you do just these 2 things!)

4.  After you enter the codes in Daily Poll & NOSO it will usually pop up a little icon that will give you additional ways to earn extra swagbucks.  A lot of the time they require you to watch a video. I will play the videos while I'm stamping (almost on mute) and earn swagbucks easily for doing almost nothing!

5. Searching the Web.  The easiest way to rack up  points is by searching the web!  The key is to start on the home page and use the swagbucks "Search & Earn" bar to do your searching.  I try to search once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once sometime in the evening (if I am home and think about it).  Usually it takes just a few searches to earn points.  I earn anywhere from 7 -12 points each time and several times have earned 40 points for one search!  On the average, that is at least 21 points a day, but most often more than that!  Simple, simple way to rack up your points quickly!

6.  Shop & Earn.  This is a really good way to rack up points, especially if you like to shop online.  On the toolbar at the top of Swagbucks, you will see a "Shop" option.  Click on that button.  This will take you to a page that shows you all of the online shops that you can earn swagbucks at by shopping.  Some of the places that you can shop at and earn swagbucks are Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, Kohls, Ebay, Target, Cafe Press, Overstock, QVC, Macy's, JcPenney, Nike, Home Depot, etc, etc, etc.  The way it works is that for every dollar you spend, you earn a certain number of swagbucks  and often times they have specials at certain stores where you can earn even more (just be sure to click through from the Swagbucks "shop" link to go directly to the online store to earn  your bucks).  As I write this post,  Walmart (who carries an impressive selection of crafting supplies) has a special that for every dollar you spend online through their link you earn 4 swagbucks.  So if you spend $25, you will earn 100 swagbucks!  It usually takes a few days for these to post to your account.  

7.   On your page you will see lots of little boxes with "tasks" that you can do to earn swagbucks.  If I am in the mood to earn some more bucks while crafting, I will look through there and find the ones that don't require me to sign up for anything and do those.  Typically I am looking for the ones that offer "2 SB" because those are typically videos that will play or a website that you have to click on to earn points.  

8.  You can also earn points by watching Swagbucks TV  If you are trying to get lots of points so that you can redeem them for a certain prize, this is a way that you can earn points quickly.  Once you watch 10 videos (the animal videos are usually 30 seconds each!!) you earn points.  I often let the videos run in the background on mute while I go about my business. :)

9.  Swag Codes.  Periodically during the day, Swagbucks will release a code that you can copy & paste into the box on your swagbucks homepage that says "Enter Your Swag Code" (next to your profile picture).  These codes are usually only good for a few hours, but if you find them when they are still in use, it is an easy way to get swagbucks!  When there is a swagcode, my phone notifies me so it is easy to enter on the go using the swagbucks mobile app.

10.  Games. If you are a gamer, there are free games you can play to earn swagbucks.  I have to admit that this is one I choose not to do, but if it is something you enjoy, it is an easy way to earn.

11.  Answer.  You will also find this in the blue toolbar at the top of the home page.  You can access the daily poll from here but you can also click on "Surveys" to get more points. You basically get paid swagbucks to take surveys. It will tell you ahead of time how long it is expected to take and how many swagbucks you will earn for taking the surveys so you can decide if it is worth your time or not.  

12. Coupons.  You can earn swagbucks by printing & redeeming coupons (under the tab at the top of the page "Discover").  For every coupon that you print and use, you earn 10 swagbucks!  Pretty cool! 

10.  Special Offers.  This is also under the "Discover" tab at the top of the page.  This is similar to the square icons that fill your home page. When you get to that page you will see tabs (under the advertisement).  There are lots of different options on what to do here.  You can find lots of easy ways to earn swagbucks.  Again, when I feel like it, I only do the easy ones.  But, if you are interested in the others, you can earn lots of swagbucks.

11. Encrave/Crave.  Another series of videos that you can watch and earn points.  Again, another set it to play and continue to do what I'm doing feature!

12. Earn Bonus Points.  There are daily goals set for you.  You can see what it is by looking at the top left of your swagbucks home page.  If you earn the goal in swagbucks, you'll be awarded extra bonus swagbucks!

I hope that that gives you some ideas on how to make the most of this program!

When you earn enough swagbucks, you can redeem your points for prizes.  I redeem my points for PayPal gift cards but you can also redeem them for lots of other gift cards and prizes!  For example, a $5 Amazon gift card is only 500 swagbucks (a $3 card is 300 points).  A $25 PayPal gift card is 2,500 swagbucks and this is what I save up for!
