  • Earn cash with Swag Bucks

    Search & WinI’m still loving Swag Bucks, through which I continue to earn Amazon gift certificates. It was a pleasant surprise to learn that they’ve added a true cash option for redemption. Eighty Swag Bucks will now get you a $5 deposit into your PayPal account.

    For me, Amazon gift certificates continue to be the better option since a $5 certificate code only costs me 45 Swag Bucks – and I know I’ll spend the money at Amazon for sure. But, if you’re looking for cash, this is certainly a very easy and totally free way to earn some.

    Back in my original Swag Bucks review, I said that it took me about a month to earn 45 Swag Bucks. But it seems to me that I’m earning Swag Bucks a little more frequently through my own searches, so it might not take you that long these days.

    Of course, you’ll earn even more Swag Bucks if your friends sign up using your referral link. So I want to thank everyone who’s signed up using my referral link, because of course, I’ve earned those Amazon gift certificates a lot faster thanks to you!
