I’ve been hearing about Swagbucks for a while now, and finally decided to check it out in more detail. (A friend of mine has been using this for several months now and loves it!) It was a piece of cake to sign up! Then all you have to do is download their search toolbar to your current browser and use it to search the internet. You earn Swagbucks as you search and can trade them in for prizes. Prizes range from gift cards to books to musical instruments, with new prizes being added frequently. Seems like a pretty effortless way to rack up some free money!
