Swagbucks: Free Prizes For Searching

Sign up here:

Recently I've been hearing a lot about a site called Swagbucks and so I thought I’d use it and give it a try.

Final verdict?

I’m having a hard time staying away from Swagbucks.

There's no reason you SHOULDN'T be using Swagbucks.

If you routinely search for things online via a typical search engine, then you’re searching without the possibility of winning something. Any time you search on Google, your odds of winning a prize is 0%. Even if your odds of winning a prize on this site is like 0.01%, that’s better than nothing, no? Plus, given the facts that most people make multiple searches a day and that winning percentages are higher than that small number, you’re essentially throwing away money if you’re not using this site.

You can win Swagbucks by shopping online. Or by recycling your old cell phones with them. Or by reading their blog and following their Twitter account. Or by…well, you get the point.

while researching this article, I won $2 Swagbucks ($1 Swagbuck and then another 15 minutes later). Now while those can’t be redeemed for anything worthwhile on their own, you only need 45 Swagbucks for a $5 Amazon giftcard. Given that you start out with $3 Swagbucks when you sign up, I’m already 11% of the way there after 1 day.

So for now, I’m drinking the Swagbucks Flavor Aid. Are you going to make millions? No. Are you going to make hundreds? Doubtful. But is there the opportunity to win enough Swagbucks every month to snag a free giftcard or two? Heck yes. Can the same be said for using Google or Yahoo?


Use the code BeMine to earn a free Swagbuck.

have no idea how much longer this code will be active for, but it’s my experience that they die quite fast.

So what are you waiting for?!

So I know our economy is going to hell.

I see more and more people begging for food, jobs, money and even diapers on the side of the road lately.

It really makes me sad.

The McDonalds near me in our local mall CLOSED.. wow just wow.

It's getting a tad bit out of hand.

There are no jobs and no money.


I'm done with this rant

Slight update

Hello everyone!

Just a very slight update for today.

I have been busy with school and let's just say I am exhausted.

I am currently taking art history, design, intro to business and color photography.

I have school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11-9, and on Thursdays from 6 -9.

So basically just an update on my status tonight.

Tomorrow I have some time before class so I will hopefully be listing some new stuff. Yay! It all depends on time and how well my pictures turn out..

I usually take my picture outside but lately it's been soooo cold, way tooo cold to go outside and take pictures so they don't turn out as well.

Well that's about it for tonight.

I'm going to bed.

Thanks for listening!

I have a page on myspace dedicated to my selling, mostly my jewelry but I sell other stuff as well - If you watch me here, and have a Myspace account- I'd be delighted if you would add me as a friend!

Here's the link:

Forest Faerie Fashions was the original name of my shop. I didn't care for it much so it didn't stick very long.

The next idea was Rayven renn, which was a character I came up with when I was a little kid and the idea stuck :]

Thanks for listening!

This is my first post!

Hello all! :]

I finally got around to creating a blog. Yaaaay!

I am new at this, so please don't mind me.

Any tips on how to get this rolling would be wonderful!

Anyways, here's an update about ME!

I am now a full time college student :)


means I am even more broke.(lol)

It also means
my shipping days will be limited.

I am able to ship Tuesd
ays, Thursdays and Fridays.

So if you order
NOW, your order will be on it's way to you on Tuesday.

I'm used to doing
it the next day so this will take some getting used to.

s for listening!
