For those of you who have not yet become familiar with swag bucks, you might like to play for your chance to win them on the search-and-win search engine sites... you may find it to be the easiest way to win yet!
The truth is, swag bucks ARE quickly becoming the easiest way to acquire fabulous merchandise on the internet.
So what are swag bucks?
These are redeemable prizes that you can win just through doing research on the internet at any of the search-and-win sites. When searching the web through these sites, you are randomly awarded instant win prizes of swag bucks in amounts ranging from one to five "bucks". Once you win, you will then claim your Swag Buck prizes, which are saved in your online account and can be redeemed for a myriad of items from the "Swag Snag Store". (I was lucky enough to have received an autographed picture from the rock band "Everclear", and a beautiful four page, full-size brochure from Benise.com, signed by Roni Benise. They really are great prizes!)
Each "Swag Snag Store" carries various items (some of which may be rather difficult to find elsewhere) from its co-sponsor such as concert tickets and autographed items, along with gift cards from brand name sponsors, electronics (including things like Mac Books, digital cameras and etched iPods), and more, each with its own "Swag Bucks" price tag.
A sweepstakes runs over a particular number of months, awarding a specific amount of Swag Bucks during this time frame, so the more you search, the better your chances of winning are (whereas most online instant win sweepstakes can only be played once daily). Once the sweepstakes is done, another begins, and your swag bucks can be rolled over and used for merchandise offered in the current sweepstakes, though you may redeem them at any time (once per sweepstakes period), once you have earned enough for your selected items.
Currently, there are about fifty or so co-branded search-and-win sites offered through Prodege, some of which include:
Search with Beyonce,
Search with Kiss,
Search with Hinder,
Search with Cherished,
Search with Everclear,
Search with Wynonna,
Search with Joey Fatone,
and many more.
