  • Swagbucks Tip: Videos on the homepage

    Search & WinMy favorite way to earn free money online is Swagbucks, which is my primary search engine. But I’ve been earning lots of additional Swag Bucks by doing activities other than searching, and I thought I’d share them in a series of tips about Swagbucks. Here’s the first one:

    Keep an eye on the homepage for videos to watch.

    They’re not always there, but in the center of the newly designed homepage, there are now “postcards” that look like this:

    The “postcards” are the widgets under the scrolling banner – the top one in this screenshot says “Special Offers.” Sometimes there are postcards with a video, and watching the video in its entirety will get you 1 to 3 Swag Bucks. It’s a super easy of earning extra Swag Bucks, and there are occasionally many videos to watch. The other day, I watched many videos about Dodge vehicles and earned approximately 20 Swag Bucks. (And when I saw “watched,” I mean I left the video running while I did other things.)

    When you supplement the Swag Bucks you win by searching with additional Swag Bucks like these, you accumulate Swag Bucks much faster – and you’ll have the 450 you need for a $5 Amazon gift card before you know it!
