so I figure it's time to start talking about the actual GPT sites.  this post will be about Swagbucks which is the site that I, along with many others started out with.  it's fairly easy to navigate and has a lot of help sites available as well as a very active facebook page to get real time help when you want or need it.

so what do you do on Swagbucks?  well, you search, play games, watch videos, take surveys, complete offers and shop too.  searches are random and you can generally win on them two to four times a day.  there have been rare occasions where people have gotten more but I've never done that personally.  the pic to the side here is what is referred to as a "mega win" which is really any win over 10.  these can happen any time but are supposed to be more common on Fridays which they've dubbed "mega swag bucks day" or MSBD. 

they've also added a daily bonus meter.  they give you a set amount to earn each day and if you do earn that amount then at the start of the following month you get a bonus for it.  the amount of the bonus increases if you get the goal for a set amount of days straight and things like that.  this is not something you are required to do but I find it fun and the extra bucks are always a welcome treat when they show up!  if you complete the daily goal every day for the entire month you're usually looking at a goal of close to 600sb.  that's more than enough to get a $5 gift card!  the amount you are required to get changes from day to day but is always lowest on the weekend.

the new thing that Swagbucks is pushing is the rewly revamped shop and earn section.  basically you click thru their link to shop at a store like walmart or drugstore.com.  you will earn a certain number of sb for each dollar spent before tax and shipping costs.  if you're buying online anyway, this is a very nice option!  I've used it a few times.  it does take just over a month to get the bucks in your account but that's to ensure you're not going to just return the items. they even have promotions where you get double or even triple the bucks for a store!  how awesome is that?  it's really hard to beat in my opinion!

so now you're probably wondering what types of things you're gonna be able to get with your newly earned swagbucks.  well the list is pretty impressive.  you can get electronic giftcards, paypal as well as physical prizes.  here's a small sampling of the things you can get.  awesome, right?  the most popular reward seems to be the $5 amazon gift card.  it's value priced at only 450sb.

so now that you know a little more, what are you waiting for?  go sign up and check it out!  earn some money for doing easy things you're probably doing anyway.  your wallet and I'm sure your family will be thrilled!
