Swagbucks is a search engine that allows you to 'earn' points for doing normal things, web searching, doing a daily poll etc. You can also earn them for shopping at their sponsored websites. As an example, if I know I need to order something from Kohl's, I'll go to the Swagbucks site and then click on their link to Kohls. I earn 2 swagbucks for every $1 that I spend at Kohl's. Why do this? To buy rewards. The best deal is that for every 450 Swagbucks you can earn a $5 Amazon gift card. I have only been doing Swagbucks for about a month and have already earned $15 in Amazon gift cards visiting the site about once a day, doing a survey, a poll and searching until I've earned some. If you want to check it out, go here. You can also earn points for other people you refer. A bit of a pyramid scheme, yes but I'm earning Amazon credit for stuff I do anyway.
