SwagBucks is the way to {get a FREE Christmas}!

**This is a sticky post and new posts will be added underneath.**

I am going to have a FREE Christmas this year.

Right now I have $90 towards this goal. I am getting further along in my goal each day. I am also increasing how quickly I reach this.

Here is how I am doing it:

1. Sign up for SwagBucks.
SwagBucks is an internet website that is similar to google. You search the web right? All you have to do is search through SwagBucks and you'll be on your way to making $$$!
You don't win $$$ each time you search, but you will win at least 10 SwagBucks a day. This can vary up to 50 SwagBucks on a search (rare) and depending upon how many times a day, you can win sometimes three or four times.

2. Download the toolbar.
The toolbar is another great tool to earn more SwagBucks. First of all, it will make your life easier. You just pop up to the SwagBucks toolbar and enter in your search. Second, sometimes when you open your browser you will win a SwagBuck (again, this is almost a guaranteed one SwagBuck daily). You open your browser everyday, right?

3. Enter the codes.
SwagBucks releases approximately one code a day. I have seen up to three in one 24 hour period. The codes are hidden in various places; SwagBucks.com, SwagBucks blog, SwagBucks on Twitter and Facebook. All you have to do is keep your eyes peeled and you can win another 4-18 SwagBucks from a code.

If you search through their site, you may come across a greeting like Ha99yM0ndaySwaGGErS! This may be a code.

4. Do the Daily Polls.
Everyday SwagBucks posts a poll. All you have to do is click your answer and voila! One more SwagBuck. Do you see how easy this is? I can't see how you can't do it!

5. Flip through the Special Offers.
Everyday there are new Special Offers through SwagBucks. All you have to do is flip through them. This takes me about two minutes, literally, and you get one more SwagBuck a day.

6. Do a task.
SwagBucks offers various other methods of making SwagBucks. There is a section in SwagBucks where you can enter information for them. It's basically a lot of copying and pasting, but it's pretty easy. I did it once or twice and it was a tad too time consuming and tedious, but it earned me a decent chunk of SwagBucks in one sitting.

The cool thing about SwagBucks is that you can do as little or as much as you like. If I have time and energy, I can "work" on getting more SwagBucks. If I don't want to, I can simply use it when I am already looking something up.

7. Do some more random tasks.
SwagBucks also has other simple random tasks to earn. A month or two ago if you added an avatar/photo to your SwagBucks account, you'd earn a few SwagBucks. The latest is linking your Facebook account and you can earn another 13 SwagBucks. I don't see why you wouldn't want to link it!

8. Refer your friends.
This is the quickest and easiest way to earn SwagBucks. Refer a friend, and win for each time they search. (Capped out at 1,000 SwagBucks)

Even if you don't have a blog you can share this code. Tell your friends via email. Link on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter.

I have found that simply linking my Facebook account and asking it to post each time that I win on a search, find a code or get a referral that it helps to get the word out there.

While I realized that SwagBucks may not be for everyone, I don't see the harm in giving it a try. They do not blow up your email with junk or sell your info. What's the worst that can happen? If you don't like it, all you have to do is quit.

There are plenty of other ways to make SwagBucks, trade in your old electronics, make purchases through their "friends" sites, take a gander. Even if these options don't work for you, there is likely something you are already doing that could earn you $$$.

One last important tidbit. Do not save up your SwagBucks. There are limits as far as how much you can cash out a day/month.

The best deal that I have found is the Amazon Gift Cards. Cash them out as soon as you reach the $5 mark. On the 1st and 17th you "get paid". They will release a code and you click in through your account and copy and paste to save them to your Amazon account (or PayPal, whatever you choose).

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I have found the website, overall, easy to deal with and making it fun to earn money. :-)
