Swagbucks

I have always liked the concept of websites where you can get a bit of extra cash for really simple things. For example, Revver pays you depending on how many people watch your videos. It may not be much, but it doesn't take much work.

But I'm not talking about those stupid ads that say "Taze the gnome and win $1000", because you always end up signing up for stuff and paying money to get those. Not to mention the spam.

Well, I recently found another website, called Swagbucks, that is a good way to make a bit of extra money. All you have to do: Search the internet. That's it. It's just another search engine, but it pays you back for using it. It gets all of its search results from Google and Ask.com, so you'll still be able to find what you are looking for.

So what's the catch? There's no spam, you don't have to pay for anything... Well, there really isn't one, except the fact that it takes a while. You can only win a few Swagbucks every once in a while. Like, you could probably get around 5-8 a day. But still, if you were already going to search, why not be rewarded?

I've been a member for... I dunno... 2 or 3 months, and I've gotten a little over 100 swagbucks by now. I only use it a few times a day, though. I have heard of people who have made more than 200 swagbucks a month.

So what can that buy you? Well, the best deal is a $5 Amazon gift card for 45 Swagbucks. They have other stuff too: iPods, hats, baseball cards, games, phones, etc.

So anyway... if you are already going to search the internet, why not go to Swagbucks and get some free stuff while you are at it?

SwagBucks is a very recommended get-paid-to site.
