Swagbucks Giveaways and Games
Would you like to earn opportunities to win just by doing your regular internet browsing? Swagbucks offers just that.
This company has many facets and while I'll be focusing on what's especially of interest to sweepstakers, a brief overview will help you understand the site. You earn virtual money called Swag Bucks to use to claim gift cards. For instance a $5 Target e-Gift Card costs 500 Swag Bucks. One way to earn them is to use the SB browser to do your internet searches. Surveys, shopping, playing games and watching videos are more ways to earn.
Swagstakes and Giveaways
SB holds sweepstakes called Swagstakes. The entry method is similar to My Coke Rewards in that you use your accumulated points, in this case Swag Bucks, to enter. Each giveaway has its own amount. Current ones include gift cards for Walmart, Amazon.com, XBox One and PayPal. You can even use Swag Bucks to win more Swag Bucks! For example, currently on offer is using 1 point to enter a giveaway for 25. There are occasionally larger giveways including the Double Entry Swagstakes in which the grand prize is worth $1000 and another giveaway that's worth 1 million Swag Bucks. That's a lot of gift cards you could redeem for yourself, friends and family.
Are you a fan of online instant win games? Swagbucks has their own version. You'll find some old standbys like Spider Solitaire and Mahjong as well as some new fare. You earn Swag Bucks for completing tasks in the games. The better you are, the more you earn. There are free versions of the games and some that you will need to spend your Swag Bucks on, but you have a chance to earn more points in the paid games.
Like any company SB has to pay its bills, so one downside is that you'll run across a lot of advertisements on the site. When I played a game, a commercial popped up for each attempt, but this may be for the freebie game plays your given. I haven't tried playing the SB entry games yet, so I don't know how ads work with those.
Swagbucks can be addictive, so you may want to pace your time accordingly. If you plan well and work quickly, you'll be racking up points and redeeming them in no time.
Have fun and good luck.
