$500 HOLIDAY CHALLENGE 2012 week 3

There are some ways to earn a little extra spending cash that are easy and won't cost you anything.   One of the tools I used last year was SwagBucks.  Swagbucks is something that is 100% free and you can make money on the site every day. It truly is easy money and I wish I had found them earlier.

The difference between this rewards site and others is that you get paid to use their search engine which gives you most of the same results you would get if you use Google. Rather than go to Google for my surfing, I use the Swagbucks search engine that randomly rewards me with Swagbucks that I can then redeem for all sorts of things like iTunes gift cards, Amazon.com gift cards, cash and so much more. Everything is free so it really is a no brainer.

What I did learn last year is that you cannot use your Amazon.com cards to redeem for other gift cards. 

The things you can do for free include take surveys, watch ads, trade in electronics, play games, and of course surf the Web. All those things pay you in Swagbucks which you then take to the Swag Store to turn in for the things you really want.

If you are super dedicated to getting as many SwagBucks as possible, After you have downloaded the Swagbucks toolbar, you can go to the earn category and select SwagBucks TV.  When you watch the selected videos(lots of categories to choose from) you earn points.  Here is a hint, when you are surfing the net, you can run the SwagBucks TV with the volume on low while you are reading blogs and catching up.

What ways have you found to earn extra spending money online?

I did swagbucks for a little bit but quickly tired of it. nothing beats google : )

I do surveys for pinecone, they pay $3 a survey and they usually only take like 5-10 minutes.

Using SwagBucks as a search bar does help in growing the bucks. But yes it does take time. :)
