I love free things. I love having somebody pay me to search the Web, which is basically what Swagbucks does.
It isn't the best search engine ever. Sometimes when Swagbucks doesn't get me what I want, I have to use Google. But I always use Swagbucks first, because I want those points.
I've been building up points in order to get a $50 Amazon.com gift card, and I'm almost there. But today I was looking in the Swag store and noticed $10 Barnes and Noble gift cards. I have enough swag bucks to get four of those, and have some bucks left over. Now that I have the Nook, I'm thinking that would be my wisest choice; most popular ebooks are ten dollars or less.
I have that button on my sidebar promoting Swagbucks, but every once in a while I like to mention it here, just in case someone else likes free stuff and hasn't heard of it. It isn't a ripoff. It really works!
I first learned about it by checking my Site Meter and noticing a regular reader was coming to my blog by way of Swagbucks. I asked about this in a blog entry and my very kind reader explained it to me.
At first I couldn't wait to get something free, and I'd settle for five-dollar gift cards. Then I'd hold out for ten-dollar ones. I can't believe I've almost garnered enough points for a fifty-dollar one!
