Courtney and I have been using Swagbucks for the last six months or so. I’m writing now to say that it works. It is a simple search engine where you are randomly awarded points for doing internet searches with their search engine. Courtney and I both set the main Swagbucks webpage as our homepage. It really doesn’t take any extra time once you get used to the way it works.
The points do add up slowly, but there are faster ways to do it by taking advantage of sporadic one-time deals. For example, I used their link to do credit checks on Courtney and I a few months ago and won 1000 points. We also signed up for Netflix using the Swagbucks interface after we cancelled our Directv and won 800 points.
What does this have to do with homesteading, you may be wondering? Once we got up to 5000 points, I cashed them in for a $50 Amazon gift card. With that card we purchased our very own copy of The Four Season Harvest by Eliot Coleman, among other books. You can use that Amazon gift card for whatever other items/books you may need on your homestead. There are many, many other things your can purchase in their store rather than an Amazon gift card, too.
If this has motivated you to try it out, then please also use us as a referral (click here to do this) because we would get a few points for referrals. Our Swag Name is hishershomestdg. Or feel free to contact us and we can help you.
