More Swagbucks Tips: Rewards

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Are you earning Swagbucks yet? Swagbucks rewards you for using their search engine – and it’s easy! Check out Part 1: Earning without downloading anything and Part 2: Using the Toolbar.

Today I’m going to tell you about the Swagbucks Rewards. After all, a Swagbuck is only worth what it will buy you.

So what will it buy you? Just about anything. The Swag Store sells everything from mechanical pencils to airline gift cards. Unfortunately, most of the stuff is either junk or a waste of Swagbucks (in my humble opinion). You want to get the most for your dollar when you shop – and in this case, you want to get the most for your Swagbuck.

First, the rules. You can only redeem 2 rewards per day. You can only redeem 5 of the same reward per month.

The most popular reward that I see everyone talking about is the $5 Amazon e-gift card. The cost of this is 450 Swagbucks. (That makes each Swagbuck worth just over 1 penny if you could spend them all on this reward). Why not save up for a $25 Amazon e-gift card, you ask? Because a $25 Amazon e-gift card is 3,150 Swagbucks.

5 $5 gift cards @ 450 = 2250 Swagbucks
1 $25 gift card = 3,150 Swagbucks

Do you see what I’m saying? And do you see where the rule about 5 of the same reward per month comes in? If you want to save up extra Swagbucks after getting your 5 $5 Amazon cards each month, you can get a $50 Amazon e-gift card for 5,900 Swagbucks.

Another popular item is the $10 Starbucks gift card. At 1,300 Swagbucks, these are actually not as good a deal as the $25 Amazon e-gift card, but don’t require as much saving up.

Some other rewards that I think are valuable:
  • $20 Target e-gift card 2,250 SB
  • $10 Barnes & Noble gift card 1,250 SB
  • $15 iTunes gift card 1,850 SB
  • $25 Disney.com e-gift card 2,950 SB
You can also get Xbox Live and Wii points that seem to be a pretty good deal if you use that sort of thing (or give it as a gift).

There are seriously hundreds of other products that you can redeem your Swagbucks for – or better yet, Don't and buy inexpensively yourself. Why waste your Swagbucks on something you can buy for less at the dollar store?

Here are some examples I think are pretty bad:
  • Desktop or iPhone wallpaper 20 SB
  • 3x3 yellow sticky notes 159 SB
  • Pens 169 SB
  • 12 Crayola colored pencils 499 SB
  • Halloween makeup 299 SB
Remember, today is MegaSwagbucks day, so sign up and get searching!

Don't forget you can also get cold hard cash if you need it too. For 700 swagbucks, you get $5 in paypal cash. Paypal is execpted pretty much anywhere on the web. If you have the paypal debit card, you can use the card anywhere a debit card is accepted.

Wow thanks for the great tips! I have been signed up with Swagbucks for a short time, and I was wondering if it was worth it.

Yep, I love getting paypal cash! I get it half the time and amazon cards the other half of the time. LOL I havn't used any of my Amazon cash yet, I'm saving for Christmas gifts, however, I needed some downloads for cheerleading, and I was able to get them for FREE. Hehe! (I know it was only .88 each, but hey! it wasn't coming out of MY pocket! LOL)

FYI, through April 8th, you can DONATE Swagbucks to the Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief Fund.
