Make FREE Money For The Holidays With Swagbucks!



I first found out about SWAGBUCKS after taking a coupon boot camp several years ago.  The woman giving the class, said she paid for all of her Holiday gifts using the money she makes from Swagbucks during the year.  I was EXTREMELY skeptical, but decided to give it a try.  I am so glad I did!

Whenever you complete SWAGBUCKS activities, you are paid in “Swagbucks.”  You can redeem these for gift cards to various stores, or via PAYPAL so it is the same as cash.

Within the first month, I had racked up over $250!  Granted I set aside about 45 minutes every evening, but it was easy money that I could make in bed from my laptop after the kids were asleep.   While I have not been spending any real time lately, I still have racked up substantial money.

In my opinion, SWAGBUCKS is the most comprehensive, and best paying earning site out there.  I have tried pretty much every program there is, and it is by far my favorite.  It is also the one that I use most.  There are so many different ways to make money on SWAGBUCKS.  You can make as little or as much as you want, and there are a lot of things you can do that do not take any time at all.   They also offer a free mobile app, which is great for anytime you have a few minutes to burn.  Make money while waiting in line, or at the doctor.  The more you use it, the more you earn.  It is also a great way to get deals and a lot of FREEBIES as well!


  • Printable Coupons-  They offer an extensive printable coupon section.  Along with saving a fortune on your purchases, you are also paid $0.10 for every coupon that you redeem!  They also offer $0.25 when you print 10 or more coupons!  It may not sound like much, but over the course of a few months, you will be surprised at how quickly it adds up!!!!!!


  • SHOPPING-Earn Swagbucks for every dollar you spend on your online purchases.


  • PAID TO SEARCH–  They offer a great “paid to search” program.    I have SWAGBUCKS search installed on my laptop, and use it for all of my online endeavors.  I bookmark the sites I use routinely so that I get credit just for signing on to Facebook, etc..   With the search feature, you are offered “random” payment sporadically, but I have discovered a few tips to increase your earnings, which you will find below at the bottom of the post.  They also offer SWAGBUCKS search on their phone app, so you can earn money searching from your phone and other electronic devices as well.


  • OFFERS- Get paid to try products, and save money on things you may buy anyway.  They offer an extensive offer sections, which pays you to complete any one you choose.  There are a lot of totally free offers, that you get paid to try.  I try to take advantage of all of these.  There are a lot of trial offers as well, that offer a free period that you can cancel, and still receive payment.  Some will require a credit card for verification, but many do not.  As long as you cancel the offer before the trial period Is up, you are not charged, and you still are paid.  For example, I completed the offer where I received a FREE Julep beauty box, and was paid $6 on top just for doing it.  I also was paid $15 to try Stamps.com for free, plus given $10 in free shipping.


  • GAMES- They offer a games section where you can earn money just for playing!


  • SURVEYS- SWAGBUCKS offers by far the best survey site available.  I know a lot of people do not like doing surveys, but I recommend you try them on SWAGBUCKS.  They offer high pay outs, and the surveys are usually short enough that it is definitely worth the time.


  • PAID TO WATCH VIDEOS-  You are paid to watch short video clips on both the online site and the mobile app.  These are great to use while out, and any time you have a wait somewhere.


  • REFFERALS- SWAGBUCKS now has changed their policy so you receive 10% of what your referrals make for a LIFETIME!  Since most sites offer limits, this is huge and an easy way to earn.  Your friends will love learning how to make easy, free, money, and you are rewarded for sharing!


  • ENCRAVE-  The Encrave is a section devoted to exploration.  Learn cool facts and read interesting articles, while earning money for it!  If you are like I am, this is something I do regularly anyway, so getting paid for it is just awesome!


  • READ- You can get paid for downloading and reading books that your purchase.  Whenever you are purchasing a book, check the section to see if it is included.


  • DAILY POLLS and TASKS- Get paid to answer the question of the day, for completely easy tasks such as looking things up online.



Even if you don’t want to spend time on things like surveys, watching ads, etc., you still can rack up substantial money from SWAGBUCKS.  It is easy to use, and is truly 100% legitimate.  Even if just using for search and coupons, it is amazing how quickly your earnings will add up.  You also can get great exclusive deals and save money on everything from purchases to services.  There are frequently offers that pay you to try things like Gamefly, Beauty Box Subscriptions, or other products and services totally free, plus pay you to do so.

Ipoll, New Mission That Earns Quick, Easy Money From Your Phone!



I have been using Ipoll now for several years, long before it was Ipoll, and when it was still called Surveyhead.  I love it, and overall, it has been very consistent and paid well.  It is a great way to earn money when you are out shopping anyway.  I opt to cashout my account for GameStop gift cards regularly and have managed to accumulate VERY nice Christmas gifts for my teenage son the past few years!  You can also get gift cards to other stores, or cash via Paypal!

I pretty much only use the Ipoll app on my phone, although you can make quite a bit from their online site, which is mostly surveys instead.  On the phone app, they offer “missions” which usually entail visiting a specific store, taking a photo, and answering a few quick questions that you are paid to do.  These missions are often triggered by your GPS location, so you have to make sure that you have enabled it on your phone when you set up the Ipoll app.

Some of the missions pay $10-$15 and more.  I have taken part in a few for $30 and even $50 which took a week of documenting activities just a few minutes a day.   There are not as many of these, but they are offered regularly enough that it really adds up.  They do however offer a lot of $1-$3 missions that just take a minute to complete.  May not sound like much, but if you are already at a store anyway, it is great to get paid for it!

Right now they have a new “Mission” available that is kind of fun, and with unlimited earning potential.  They call it NEW PRODUCT SCAVENGER HUNT.

Whenever you are close to a participating store, it will register on the GPS.


Once in the store, just open the app, click on the scavenger hunt tab, and it will check you in.001

  Whenever you see a product that looks like it is new, you will scan the barcode, take a photo, and answer a quick question.  You are paid $0.20 for every product that you add, but if you are the first to scan a new product, you can end up with $500 in your bank account each month!  It is quick, easy, and it really does add up fast!

Make sure you check the app frequently, as new missions are added often, and the high paying ones can fill up.

Ipoll is one of the few apps and sites like this that do not offer points or incentives for referrals, but it is still worth sharing with your friends!
