At a very simple level, Swagbucks is a site that allows you to accrue points (called Swag Bucks) by various methods, and then you can spend those points in their store. In the month's time I've been using Swagbucks, I've accrued enough points to order $40 worth of Amazon gift cards and have entered a drawing for a Wii U. I'm about a day away from getting another $5 Amazon card. Click the banner above to go to the Swagbucks page and create your account. You can use a traditional username/password, or you can log in through Facebook; it's up to you. There is a plethora of ways to earn Swag Bucks, and I'm going to categorize them by how much effort each requires.

So that's what Swagbucks has to offer. It seems like there are a lot of ways to earn Swagbucks, and there are. You can mix and match the different ways to create your own system. Over the next few days I'll be writing more in depth about all the different methods as well as sharing what I do. This will hopefully arm you with enough information to make your own decisions about what's worth your time and what isn't.
