Swagbucks and Amazon

I just redeemed another free $5.00 Amazon gift card from Swagbucks.  I started using Swagbucks in April of last year, and since then this is my 11th free $5.00 gift card to  And I'm not one of those crazy go out and do all their promotions, make my friends sign up, download to toolbar kind of folks.  Nope, that's what I'm getting just using it as my plain old search engine.  I love, love, love when I get a giftcard to Amazon because I must spend it on Amazon which means it's like a treat and can't be stolen by the grocery budget.  There are so many options on Amazon it's not hard to find something I want.  I tend to use them up buying books for my Kindle or I've saved them up to get a Klean Kanteen or I'll use it to buy a kid's book to send to my nieces and nephews.  The point is there are lots of options.  I was happy to get another gift card to use and wanted to pass on my experience for any who haven't checked it out yet.

If you don't know what Swagbucks is yet it's essentially a search engine, but you sign up for an account and when you use the search engine you'll slowly accrue "Swagbucks" on your account.  You can then trade your swagbucks in for lots of different prizes.  I obviously always get the Amazon card, but there are lots of options.  It usually takes about a month of normal use for me to have enough for a $5 Amazon card. You can check it out here.
