I have an Amazon card giveaway for you today, people!

And get your entering fingers ready, because over the next week, I’ve got several more giveaways to do! I’ll be squeezing them in between regular posts by doing the giveaways on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Today’s giveaway is from Swagbucks, and next week, I’ll be giving away a Shabby Apple gift card and some free pizzas.

Okee-doke. For today’s giveaway, I’ve got two $25 Amazon gift cards from the people at Swagbucks.

I’ve posted about Swagbucks before, but for those of you who are new, here’s a quick recap.

Swagbucks is an online rewards site which allows you to earn Swagbucks for all sorts of things, like using their search engine, answering polls, shopping online through their site (that aspect is very similar to Ebates), taking surveys, and more.

Earn Reward Points and Redeem Them For Free Stuff Swagbucks - Mozilla Firefox 4102013 95048 PM

Swagbucks are redeemable for all sorts of really awesome rewards, like Amazon gift cards, credits to your PayPal account, a Roku box, and more (Tons more, actually. Way too many to list.) I really like this feature of Swagbucks, because I’ve tried a lot of reward programs over the years, and some of them had really, really unexciting redemption options, like a $15/$35 flower delivery coupon.

Amazon gift cards are way better. ;)

In fact, that’s pretty much all I ever redeem my points for. However, sometimes certain gift cards go on sale (which means they cost fewer Swagbucks than usual), and so then I sometimes spring for something other than an Amazon card. I love it when L.L. Bean cards go on sale because I like to use those to buy work clothes for Mr. FG.

Oh, another nice thing about Swagbucks is that you don’t have to accumulate tons of Swagbucks before you cash out. With just 450 Swagbucks, you can snag a $5 Amazon gift card.

Free Gift Cards - $5, Redeemable Prizes from our Swag Store Swagbucks - Mozilla Firefox 4102013 95356 PM

If you haven’t got a Swagbucks account, you can get one for free, and I have a special code for you to use. Normally when you sign up, you get 30 free Swagbucks to start, but with this code, you get 70 Swagbucks!

To get your 70 Swagbucks, go sign up for a Swagbucks account, and during the process, click the text that reads, “I have a sign up code.” and enter 70FRUGALGIRL

And that’ll put you well on your way to your first Amazon gift card.

Two of you will get getting $25 Amazon gift cards without spending any of your Swagbucks, though.

To enter, just leave me a comment on this post.

You can say something about Swagbucks (if you’re an experienced Swagbucks user, leave any great tips you have for earning Swagbucks quickly and easily!), or you can just tell me you want the gift card.

(Because who doesn’t want an Amazon gift card??)

This giveaway will end at midnight EST on Friday, April 12th. That’s tomorrow, so go throw your name in the hat right away.

One entry per person, please.

Swagbucks did not give me any gift cards or other payment to write this post and all opinions are my own.

  1. Jess T says

    I love swagbucks, and Amazon gift cards! Be sure to take the daily poll and click through the NOSO (no obligation special offers) daily to earn extra. Biggest swagbucks are from searching using their browser.

  2. Corrie says

    Love swagbucks! Each Friday they offer extra swagbucks, so I try to save a lot of my research for Fridays!

  3. Dawn says

    Love Amazon, who wouldn’t want a gift card? Their free shipping over $25 has saved me lots of money through the years.

  4. says

    Hiya! Love Swagbucks! I don’t know if your giveaway is open to those of us in the UK, but I thought I’d give it a go! It takes a bit longer to collect enough points for 5 worth of vouchers than $5, but I’ve just redeemed my first 5 giftcard and put it towards a proper razor. No more disposables for me! It’ll just be the blades from now on, and you can recycle those! I think I signed up for Swagbucks via your site, so thank you for giving me a nudge in a good direction!
    Love your blog by the way as well!!
    Jo :-)

  5. Kathy says

    Thanks for all the give-a-ways. Please count me in with this wonderal gift card. I love swagbucks too…………

  6. Karen D. says

    I love Swagbucks! I have earned over $1000 in two years without much effort at all. I don’t do referrals, just a survey now and then, watch videos, search, etc. Love it!

  7. Amanda R. says

    Thanks for the opportunity. I’d love an Amazon gift card. Swagbucks is amazing; my husband and I use it often.

  8. Kristie says

    I complete Swagbuck surveys while watching TV at night. It’s a great way to earn those Amazon gift cards.

  9. says

    I’ve been using swagbucks for over four years now! I’ve found the quickest way to earn bucks is to run their Swagbucks Mobile Ap on my phone while it is charging. The bucks add up even when I’m not using my phone :)

    I save up my Amazon cards and use them for ‘extras’ for our family…like new camping gear or gifts- things I want to buy but don’t fit into our normal budget.

  10. G says

    Love Swagbucks and definitely love amazon gift cards! I have a birthday coming up soon and a gift card would come in so handy :)

  11. Kristina says

    I’ve signed up for Swagbucks but haven’t really gotten the hang of it yet. I will try to remember to use it more for my searches :)

  12. Michele says

    I have used Swagbucks in the past with success; but when I switched over to a new computer, I forgot to set it as my home page so I automatically use it as my search engine. This was a good reminder to do that right now- thanks!

  13. Kate says

    I’ve never used Swagbucks, although I’ve thought about it. But I’d love to have that Amazon gift card!

  14. Kate P. says

    I was truly skeptical of Swagbucks at first, but now I use it every day. I don’t do anything but searches to get Swagbucks, and still am able to get a $5 Amazon card every six weeks or so.

  15. says

    I have never adventured into the world of Swagbucks – mainly because I had not heard of it! I am new to your blog by just a few weeks and am loving all your tips and blog posts. I’m going to go check out this Swagbucks thing for myself! Thanks!

  16. says

    I love Swagbucks. I am trying to save all my giftcards for Christmas shopping this year. Whenever I’m on the computer I pull up Swagbucks tv and earn that way.

  17. Bonnie says

    Thank you for the information on Swagbucks! I would use the gift card for things my daughter needs for college.

  18. Megan J says

    I used to use swagbucks all the time, but I switched browsers a while back and swagbucks doesn’t support safari :(. Love the amazon rewards though!

  19. says

    I love Swagbucks! I usually earn between $10-20 in Amazon gift cards every year, for basically doing nothing. I just use their search instead of Google and get the same results. When I try I earn them even faster though. :)

  20. Amy Dunn says

    Would love to win a $25 Amazon gift card! Who wouldn’t!?! I typically save my Swagbucks points for Christmas time and buy gifts. Great way to save.

  21. Steph says

    Thank you for posting about swagbucks – I had never heard of it!! I’ve signed up for an account and plan to start collecting straight away. As a vet student with another 4 years ahead of me I could use as many Amazon cards as I can get! :)

  22. Sara says

    Love swagbucks! One year I paid for our entire list for Christmas gifts with Amazon giftcards I’d earned from SB!

  23. K D says

    I love Swagbucks. If you shop through them you can get a certain percentage of your spending in Swagbucks (like eBates). Sometimes they offer more than eBates, I just shopped at Target and will earn 3% in Swagbucks.

  24. KaeleyAnne says

    I love swagbucks. Their search engin is terrible, though, so I rarely remember to use it. However, I almost always remember to answer the daily poll, so I get at least one point a day! I also tend to redeem my points for an Amazon gift card.

  25. Alissa says

    I have a Swagbucks account, but I always forget to use it, and it seems like it would take forever to earn enough points for anything…. I usually go through MyPoints, but maybe I’ll give Swagbucks another try.

  26. Kimberly P. says

    Seriously, who wouldn’t want an Amazon gift card?! Love Amazon. Haven’t tried Swagbucks yet…seriously considering it.

  27. Ellen S says

    Love swag bucks…. have gotten a few gift cards from them! easy to do… only takes a few seconds a day!

  28. Lori says

    I just started using Swagbucks recently so don’t have a ton of points yet, but I’m excited about the possibilities! Of course, I would LOVE an amazon card. :)

  29. Valerie says

    I signed up for Swagbucks a long time ago after one of your other posts and I love it! I’ve been redeeming for Amazon cards, and they’ve bought a few x-mas gifts for my nephew!

  30. SarahD says

    I signed up through your blog post a couple of years ago. Love swagbucks!! Would love to win a gift card.

  31. says

    Swagbucks is great! I don’t know why more people don’t take advantage and join. My tip is that I run swagbucks tv on my kindle to earn points. You have to poke it now and then to move on to the next movie preview but basically it’s good and runs on it’s own.

  32. says

    I’ve heard of it but it seems like it would take forever to earn points. Though I suppose free money is always good! Love Amazon though!!

  33. says

    My husband and I are expecting our 1st baby this July & are hoping to close on our 1st home this May. That said, we are trying to be as frugal as possible and every little bit helps… including a gift card =)!

  34. says

  35. Hannah says

    I have used swagbucks for awhile and its great to get an extra $5 off here and there without really doing much

  36. Emily H. says

    I did Swagbucks for a while… then I forgot about it! I need to continue doing that since I’m online all the time!!

  37. Leanne says

    Who wouldn’t love an Amazon gift card? No one who is leaving a comment that’s for sure! I’d love one please!

  38. Corinne says

    I absolutely LOVE Swagbucks! I get Amazon GCs all the time. One year for Christmas, I was able to use my Swagbucks on presents for five of my nieces/nephews – that’s how many Swagbucks I had in the bank. It was awesome! Swagbucks is easily the best place for rewards that I have found!
    Thanks for the giveaway! Hope I win!

  39. Pam says

    Love Swagbucks! I was able to save up $50 in Amazon GC while I was pregnant and use it for our awesome stroller.

  40. Kate says

    Can we enter even if we’re already members of swagbucks? I joined a couple weeks ago. Amazon gift cards are the best!

    Here are my tips… the surveys are great, though realize that you’re going to have a lot that you start and then are disqualified for, so they may not be as rewarding as they look on the surface. I also use swagbucks for my browsing, and I love exploring their videos and music area. Also, I always check for coupons and deals whenever I need something–some of their coupons are really good!

  41. Debra says

    I agree with you, who wouldn’t want an Amazon Gift card? Please count me IN, for this delightful giveaway.

  42. Amanda R says

    We are wanting to buy a dehydrator so Amazon gift cards would be perfect! I’ve never tried Swagbucks but will be checking it out today :)

  43. Jen G. says

    I’m a newbie swagbucker so I could definitely use some tips on how to rack up the bucks quickly and easily!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  44. anna chan says

    I tried swagbucks and didn’t like it. It was like a lottery where sometimes I would earn bucks, but most of the time I wouldn’t.

  45. Caitlin says

    I already use Swagbucks, and I really like it. I never earn a ton (I’m not one of those “power earners”) but it’s such a great little boost to be able to send $5 starbucks cards to people out of the blue.

  46. Jeannie says

    I signed up for swagbucks but haven’t been able to redeem my points. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I always get a message that I’ll get an email but never do. Help!

    But I do love Amazon gift cards. I recently bought a pressure canner with Amazon gift cards and didn’t have to spend any “real money.”

    Now I can save more money by preserving my food making it healthier and much cheaper :-).

  47. Angie says

    I have read several articles this week alone regarding Swagbucks. I’m signing up today! I would love to win a gift card!

  48. Stacy T says

    I have heard of Swagbucks, but never tried it. Sounds interesting. Love your blog, keep the great posts coming! (:

  49. Pam H says

    I love swagbucks. I have gotten a number of amazon gift certificates from them. I usually only do the daily poll and then searches. Between swagbucks and another rewards program I am saving up for a PS3 for my nephew. I’m about half way there.

  50. El says

    I would love the amazon gift card. I forget sometimes that I am signed up for swagbucks. Thanks for the reminder!

  51. says

    I love Swagbucks, although I’m still trying to work out what I should redeem mine for, since Amazon has quite high postage rates to Australia. I’m thinking maybe Paypal vouchers – although I’d still love to win the free vouchers :)

  52. Kelly K says

    I do enjoy Swag Bucks! I never seem to find any of the swag codes though. Must not be looking in the right places. :)

  53. Tammy Adams says

    I ADORE Swagbucks. Use it every day. I love I can get Amazon cards before you know it. Thanks for the giveaway

  54. Elizabeth says

    I wish Swagbucks had a toolbar for Safari so I would remember to use it more often! Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. Amy Pizano says

    I’ve been reading your blog for what seems like forever, and until today I have never bothered to look into what Swagbucks are all about. Well, today I finally signed up! Thank you :-)

  56. Jennifer says

    Amazon is my go to site to purchase online and Swagbucks are always a good thing. We’ll see how my karma is sitting right now-I’ve been a very good girl. :)

  57. says

    Swagbucks has been very, very good to me! I got my KitchenAid mixer for less than $5 thanks to Swagbucks and Amazon, a Cuisinart food processor for free and loads of other goodies. I’m currently saving for a Kindle, so another $25 would be sweet!

    Thanks, Kristin!

  58. Lori says

    I have just recently started back with collecting Swagbucks and hoping I can get some gift cards soon. Thanks for the giveaway!

  59. Renee McDonnell says

    I love swagbucks but am bummed that I cannot use it at my office anymore. I use it at home when I am there but miss the extras from searching at work. Great company with great benefits.

  60. Traci says

    I will definitely try out swagbucks. I have been using FatWallet for a while with no issues, but it seems swagbucks may have more options for cashing out points. Thanks!

  61. Shannon says

    I use swagbucks. I mostly just search using their toolbar to get points. I always go for the Amazon gift cards! I LOVE Amazon!

  62. getting there says

    Are your Canadian readers allowed in on the action? I’f so I’d love a chance at snagging a gift card!

  63. says

    I am relatively new to Swagbucks – I have about 250 points. The hard part for me is remembering to use them when I am on a mission for something. Do you have any tips for that?

  64. April says

    I love Swag Bucks! I got into them from reading your blog, and have been addicted. I’ve already redeemed some points for amazon gift cards, and would love some more :)

  65. Joyce says

    I did sign up for swagbucks but never seem to find the time to go and get acquainted with it. I should make the time since $$$ is involved. Thanks for this giveaway. I hope you’re feeling better.

  66. Jeri says

    I just joined swagbucks earlier this week; bummed that I missed the code for 70SB! I’m unsure what I think about SB so far, it seems a little harder for me to earn SB than you described. That could be because I’m new to it. Regardless, I really enjoy your blog, thank you!

  67. says

    I used the Swagbucks search toolbar – I get the one free every day (just for using the toolbar) and then any that come up in searches. I don’t do anything else like the games or videos or anything. I have never had a lot of people sign up under my referral link either. And yet, those little bucks for the easiest things add up to nice little Amazon gift cards. I call that a good deal. ;)

    Thanks for the chance!

  68. Beth D says

    Oh me please! Full time working mamas love Amazon.com!
    And with your handy link, I’ll be signing up for swagbucks right now.

  69. Diane says

    I just started using Swagbucks within the last year, but to be honest, have not had the time to go on there regularly. But, thanks to this post, I’ve been reminded how great it is and so, here I go. :) Thanks again!

  70. Christina says

    My son is always buying from amazon, so this would help my costs with that. I’ve tried w
    Swag bucks and don’t seem to get the hang of it or actually I’m just not interested.

  71. Rachel says

    I love the ‘extras’ I am able to get by using swagbucks. If Canadians are included in this draw I would love to win!

  72. says

    I have let my avid collecting slip recently in favour of better search results, but there’s no denying that Swagbucks are pretty rad…free (good) stuff? For something I’m doing already? Yes, please.

  73. Alicia says

    I love Swagbucks! The points come in handy when the holidays come around and you can spend your points on Amazon gift cards making shopping a little bit easier! :D

  74. Ann S. says

    yeah, amazon gift card! I already have a swagbucks account, but could be conscientious about using it more often…

  75. says

    I use swagbucks every day: Do NOSO (no obligation special offers) for 2 swagbucks a day, poll for 1 swagbuck a day, for every 2 games you play you get 2 free swagbucks to max 10 per day and then searches and using the toolbar. I average 30 a day so usually end up with $10 to $20 free amazon cards per month which I deposit to my amazon account and save up for Christmas use.

  76. Lora says

    I have a Swagbucks account, but haven’t really used it. I think I will go check it out again and start using it. Thanks for the chance to enter … I would love an Amazon gift card.

  77. Megan Walker says

    My almost 4 year old son needs a new car seat so the Amazon gift card would be awesome! I have never used Swag bucks so I cannot comment on them. Sound nice so I think I will give them a try.

  78. Jen says

    Swagbucks sounds interesting. I’ll have to check it out since I have a lot of free time for the internet at the moment. Also very interested in Amazon gift cards!

  79. Catherine Kearns says

    Swagbucks lets me do all my normal searching on the web, and earn free stuff! What more could someone want?

  80. Katie says

    I definitely want a gift card. :) And you speak so highly of Swagbucks that I may have to finally give it a try.

  81. Cathy Simon says

    Thanks for the chance to win a gift card! I have a swagbucks account and find it really difficult to earn points so I have only ever redeemed my points twice.

  82. Amanda Bohr says

    I learned about Swagbucks from you! I haven’t spend any of my bucks yet but I am saving them for Christmas!
    Thank you

  83. Cheryl says

    It would be so exciting to win! I have been saving my points towards a big purchase on Amazon – a vitamix!! This would put me that much closer to my goal! Thanks for the chance to win!

  84. Sarah says

    I think Swagbucks has emerged as one of the few non-spammy, non-sketchy ways to make a few extra bucks on the internet. Thanks for the giveaway!

  85. Jennifer G says

    I LOVE Amazon – most of the time, sometimes I can find what I want cheaper elsewhere, but it is also a great resource for reviews!

  86. Shauna Douglass says

    I have used Swagbucks! I got out of the habit of getting on there and keep thinking I should get back into it! :)

  87. Amanda says

    Don’t really know about Swagbucks — I’ll have to check them out. I know ALLLLL about Amazon though — love them!

  88. Jenny says

    I’m not a member of swagbucks yet, but I keep hearing about them on so many blogs, I’m thinking maybe I should be.

  89. Laurie says

    We use Swagbucks all the time and I average 1-2 $5 Amazon gift cards per month. Not a bad return for about a 10 minute investment of time twice a day. I check all my usual blogs with the Swagbucks search bar so that really helps! Thanks for the chance to win one! Have a blessed day.

  90. Sarah MK says

    Love Swagbucks! I collect Amazon GC’s all year and use them for my kids at Christmas! I always have good luck on getting Swagbucks using the search feature.

  91. Wendy R. says

    I’m signed up for swagbucks, but I haven’t been using it much. I need to be more intentional I guess. I would like an Amazon gift card. Thanks for the giveaways.

  92. Anne Weber-Falk says

    Cool! Thanks! I use the site for searching often. I’ve accumulated over 2700 swagbucks but have yet to redeem them. Still trying to decide what to redeem for…

  93. Karen. says

    I should sign up for swagbucks. Every penny counts, and sometimes the gift card makes the difference! Thanks for the giveaway.

  94. chppie says

    Perfect timing! I’ve been thinking about trying this out so I’ll use your link to start. I also like that there are so many great tips for earning extra points. I’m sure I’ll put those to use.

    Of course earning an amazon gift card could lead to a mighty long amazon wish list.

    Thanks for posting this.

  95. Jamie Stone says

    Thank you for telling us about Swagbucks – I just signed up and earned 100 points! I would be very excited to win an Amazon gift card!!

  96. Maria H says

    I am indifferent about Swagbucks. In the beginning, it went well and then it tanked for me and my account was closed. I tried again this past year and it seemed harder to earn points and rewards unless you get a lot of followers which I never have had. Reminds me of sales that involve “home parties”.

  97. Lori Cagle says

    Wow! I just signed up to Swagbucks. Thank you for providing this information. I recently became unemployed, and found your site. I love, love, love your website. Your ideas and stories are Fabulous! You are brilliant. I look forward to visiting your site everyday!

  98. says

    I wish I could be a SwagBucks user but it’s blocked at work. :( I do almost all of my online surfing and playing at work (I need a break from the computer when I get home) so it’s not really worth it for me to use. I think it’s an awesome program though!

  99. Rachel D. says

    I LOVE swagbucks! Every year for Christmas, Easter and their birthdays I always like to get the kids at least 1 book and this past year I was able to do that with Amazon cards that I earned through Swagbucks! :)

  100. Vicki F. says

    I love Swagbucks. I have only gotten the Amazon gift cards, but I can get things I want that aren’t really in the budget. I recently got a set of essential oils. I would love a gift card!

  101. says

    Oh my goodness! I have been saving up my swag for a $25 paypal card but have been wrestling with myself over getting an amazon one. Winning this would be sweet! Cause then i could do both.

  102. Michael says

    I’ve been a Swagbucks user for the last few years and I love it! I actually never heard of the program before your blog, and after you mentioned it in a post, I signed up. I’ve only ever redeemed my Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards, and they’ve all been put to good use! Thanks for the contest and for sharing your experiences with Swagbucks.

  103. Barbara O says

    I started a Swagbucks account because of one of your posts. My disorganized mind forgets it from time to time, even with the toolbar right on my desktop! I’m of the generation that uses computers for tasks only, and I can be pretty focused on those tasks when I’m at the computer, so I just don’t think about it. But I’m going to get better, because you’re right, the rewards are worth it! Thanks for your blog, I love it!

  104. says

    Awesome giveaway! I’d totally love to win. I’ve been hoarding my Amazon gift cards I’ve earned from Swagbucks in the hopes of buying an iPod, and then I just spent $25 on something totally inglamorous–a compost pail for my kitchen. LOL It was “free” but set me back by a bit, BUT I am tired of the compost sitting in an open bowl on my counter. :)

  105. says

  106. Angela S. says

    I love FG, Swagbucks and Amazon!! I always redeem my Swagbucks for the Amazon gift card!! Good luck to all!! :)

  107. Jenny says

    I signed up for SwagBucks after reading about it on one of your previous posts, but I never really did anything with the account until recently. Just by doing surveys and polls and watching a few videos, I’ve managed to accumulate almost enough for one of those $5 Amazon cards in under two weeks! Just think how nicely that $5 card would go with a $25 one . . .

  108. Erin T says

    I like swag bucks. I’ve already earned enough points to get one $5 amazon card, thanks to your posting in the past. :)

  109. Beka says

    So of course, I saw this after I put in an Amazon order today! But I’m always ordering from there for school, so I would love to win one!

  110. cathy says

    Mmm i have never heard of swagbucks but amazon? I know all about that. I have an ever changing wishlist ready for the kids birthdays and christmas.

  111. Rachel W. says

    I love Swagbucks but I’ve gotten out of the habit of using their search engine. Need to get back into it. Also enjoyed playing a couple of the games on the site.

  112. Rachel says

    I did swagbucks for a bit, but I think I must’ve forgotten about it! I should get back to trying to earn them.

  113. Kim says

    Thanks for the amazing Amazon.com give-away! I do have a Swagbucks account but I always forget to use it! I’m so conditioned to search through the Google link on my browser’s toolbar! I need to put a Swagbucks link in my toolbar so I remember to search through them and earn more points!

  114. akbj says

    Would love an amazon giftcard! I am an active Swagbucks user, in the 3-4 years I’ve been using them have made maybe an average of $20.00 a month in amazon gift cards. It adds up and really helps. I get everything on amazon from toilet paper to food items to DVD’s, and of course books…..I’ve pretty much stopped using Costco and have started using amazon for everything I used to get at Costco. I haven’t ever gotten amazon prime yet, but the month I had it free I really liked it and am thinking about it. I have a kindle and get lots of free books. Amazon Rocks! Thanks for doing this!

  115. Jackie says

    I have changed swagbucks to be the default search engine in my web browser. That way I can just type my search into the address bar and it immediately runs it through the swagbucks search. Otherwise I don’t remember to click over to their site. I don’t earn nearly as much as some others on here, but every little bit helps (about a $5 gift card ever 6-8 weeks is my average). :) So a $25 gift card would be great!

  116. Susie says

    Of course I would like to win an Amazon GC! We shop on Amazon at least 4 or 5 times a month and have a Prime membership (2 day free shipping on almost anything). I had not heard about Swagbucks, but I will check it out now that you have provided this awesome code to use for sign up! TY!

  117. Oakley says

    Great info on “Swagbucks;” I’m going to check it out! “Amazon” (specifically, “Amazon subscribe and save!”) is the magic word at our home….with 5 very young kiddos, I’m always looking for ways to stretch a dollar. Amazon is an essential, so thank you for entering me into the drawing! Blessings!

  118. Jen W. says

    I love Swagbucks but I’ve been slacking off on doing anything but searches on there this past few months. I’ll take this as a reminder to get back into gear! Thanks!

  119. Kara says

    I have a swagbucks account and have taken advantage of the points for Amazon cards numerous times. I love that I can buy any and everything at a reasonable price, but I also love it when I can save a little more on my purchase and these gift cards make that possible.

  120. Karen says

    I love Swagbucks and use them all the time. I used to love the swag code searches where it was kind of like a scavenger hunt. Not sure if they still do those.

  121. Jill says

    I have earned several Amazon gift cards through Swagbucks as well. Just one tip I learned through experience: installing the Swagbucks toolbar on some computers will *significantly* slow down the processing of your pc/laptop. Without the toolbar you can still go directly to the site and search through that landing page without endangering the speed of your computer’s processing.

  122. Ruth says

    For some reason I can’t get Swagbucks to work on my computer since I (actually my wonderful husband) had to replace the hard drive. I miss Swagbucks!!!! But I would happily accept an Amazon gift card to help me feel better. ;)

  123. Tammy Egan says

    I just signed up for swagbucks. I had no idea sites like that existed :)
    Thanks for all the good info you post, I’ve learned a lot reading your blog.


  124. Anne says

    I love swagbucks! And the Amazon gift card is the way to go:) I use it to search for all the different blogs I read throughout the week (including Frugal Girl!).

  125. Yelena G says

    I love Swagbucks!! I use swagbucks when I do my online shopping and get points for that too!! I always redeem my points for Amazon gift cards : ) Thanks.

  126. Fan. says

    Hi Kristen!
    I don’t think Swagbucks works in Europe, so I don’t have an account. There are similar offers though, like iGraal. I haven’t signed up yet though, as I’m trying to reduce the amount of money I spend online :)
    I’d LOVE an amazon gift card though, because I love books and Amazon offers the best deals for the Frenchies like me who enjoy reading novels in their original language (English). French bookstores charge indecently for any and all books in a foreign language, e.g. €15 -around $20- for a $9 paperback. They are shameless!

    By the way, OBVIOUSLY Joshua went snorkelling and took a picture of a submarine underwater :)
    Have a nice evening,

  127. Jessica says

    Wow.. so excited to try this swagbucks website!! But I’ll be even more excited to win a gift card for Amazon.. I am a recovering Amazon-aholic!

  128. debbie flowers says

    I keep stockpiling my Swagbucks so I can get something BIG (like enough points to get an IPAD maybe? )! So an Amazon card will keep me from cashing in! ha Thanks for the giveaway and the nice blog. I enjoy it.

  129. says

    I’ve been using SWAGBUCKS since I read a post about it here. I use it for Amazon cards too. I’m thinking maybe I’ll get a Starbucks card with my next 500 swagbucks.

  130. Heather B says

    I have been signed on Swagbucks for at least 2 years now, but never think to use it. This might get me started again!

  131. Kayla says

    I love Swagbucks! I saved them up and used them to purchase Amazon gift cards to use towards the purchase of my first DSLR!

  132. Anissa says

    Swagbucks is fabulous. We bought a tent, enameled cast iron pot and lots of electronic gadgets for free. Love it, wish me luck!

  133. Tonya Lawson says

    I thought I had done SwagBucks before, but apparently, I haven’t. Please put me in the drawing. Now, off to SwagBucks! Thanks Kristen!

  134. Michelle H. says

    I always use my Swagbucks for the $5 Amazon gift cards, too. It seems to be the best bang for the Swagbuck.

  135. MelissaZ says

    I use swagbucks to buy amazon giftcards for books that the library doesn’t carry. It’s a nice little treat.

  136. Laura says

    I have heard a lot of good things about Swagbucks, but haven’t tried them yet… But I use Amazon so much, I’m pretty silly for not at least signing up, eh? I’m going for it…

  137. Holly says

    Never used swagbucks, just seems like 1 more thing to have to keep track. But may give it a try soon. I’ve been shopping on Amazon for a long time it’s so convenient. When there is something I would like to buy I shop and put it on one of my lists. When there are a few things that I still want/need I’ll order and get free shipping.

  138. Nancy from Mass says

    I have been wondering about Swagbucks, but hadn’t had a chancce to check it out yet. maybe now is the time!

  139. Dee says

    I like Swagbucks, although I don’t spend as much time as I used to doing the code hunts. It’s nice to earn gift cards for searching I would do anyway!

  140. Rosie says

    I love swagbucks, also for the amazon gift cards… i save them up all year and then use them for holiday gifts.

  141. Colleen says

    I’ve been using Bing’s search engine for this same reason, but I’ll give Swagbucks a try. I’m searching anyway. :)

  142. Susanna says

    I’ve been using swagbucks for several years now- and the $5 amazon e-giftcard is all I ever use them for – I usuallly just do the daily survey(unless I forget!) and do some searches and still manage to get enough swagubucks for several of these cards every year.

  143. David Black says

    I like Swagbucks and my new thing is Viggle. I just click on the show and after a few weeks it turns into a Barnes and Noble gift card! voila! (But you are right, Amazon is better!)

  144. Amanda says

    I am always open to getting a free Amazon gift card. I am a very frequent shopper with them and there are many books on my wish list that I would love to add to my library.

  145. Patti says

    Hi Kristen,

    I would love a gift card! I have been using Swagbucks for years and have bought many things through Amazon. Their gift cards are about the only things I buy.

    To make it easier, after my bucks are posted on Swagbucks, I transfer them to Amazon and they sit there as a credit on Amazon. Sooo much easier!

    Hope I win!!


  146. Alicia says

    Throwing my hat into the ring! Who wouldn’t like to win an Amazon card, really, huh? Thanks for offering!

  147. Molly says

    I would like the gift card please. I just got a kindle (how I used my work bonus!) and would like some books!

  148. Paula says

    I just signed up because of this great gift card giveaway, and it was easy. It’s great that the point levels are actually reachable. It will give me something productive to do at the computer while breastfeeding our newest addition.

  149. Rebecca says

    I am saving my swagbucks right now to get a large enough gift card to get a new crock pot…I’m not being super patient right now and $25 to Amazon would get me even closer!

  150. Tanya says

    I have never used swagbucks… much less even heard of it, but I will definitely be checking it out now. However I do LOTS of shopping on Amazon… so I would really enjoy getting a gift card. Thanks

  151. Jovi Lozano says

    I have a swagbucks account myself and love it. I don’t know of any other way to get rewarded so easily for using the internet!

  152. Misty says

    Would so love to win a gift card! I have not used Sawgbucks for a while, I should revisit it. Thanks for the post.

  153. Michele W says

    Hello, never used Swagbucks before but it sounds cool. I would like the Amazon gift card please and thank you! :)

  154. TracyDK says

    I love swagbucks! I have gotten so many things over the past couple of years from amazon and Barnes & Noble. I’ve tried to convince my fiancee to get the toolbar on his computer and do searches from it, or to go to their page to do searches, but he just gives me this baleful look. *L* However, since my computer has breathed its last, maybe he’ll let me put it on his computer for me to use? It’s always an idea.

  155. Lilypad says

    In 2 years with Swagbuck, I’ve collected $170 worth of gift cards—and that’s without earning them off anyone else or doing a lot of surveys or really actively trying much. Free money: it’s my favorite kind.

  156. Amanda says

    I have been an avid swagbucks user for the past two years. When my family fell on hard times I was able to use swagbucks to pay for Christmas presents.

  157. Susan says

    I have never used Swagbucks, but I know you’ve referred to them quite a few times, so I’d be willing to give them a try! I will go to their website and sign up today!

  158. Debbie says

    I love using Swagbucks. I don’t think I’ve paid for anything I’ve bought from Amazon for a few years now, since I’ve been using my Swagbucks to get Amazon gift cards. :)

  159. Melissa says

    I’m so excited to start using Swagbucks – not sure how I haven’t heard about it before! Thanks for the info…

  160. says

    Holy Moly! Guess we’re all suckers for something free.

    Anyhow, I’ve never signed up for Swagbucks because it frightens me… I fear online tracking, piles of junk mail (both email and snail) etc. Can anybody tell me anything that might assuage my fears?

  161. Brittany says

    I keep meaning to try Swagbucks. Now looks like the perfect time! I’d certainly use them on Amazon gift cards too. Awesomely useful.

  162. Carla says

    I use MyPoints, and I can’t quite bring myself to join an additional rewards program. Too easy to get sucked into spending time trying to earn more points.

    I’d love an Amazon gift card though. :)

  163. Jeni says

    I would love a giftcard! I need to start using swagbucks again… I sort of forgot about it when I switched to mostly mozilla.

  164. MariaInChicago says

    Just signed up for Swagbucks. I already use Ebates, but this sounds like it’s worth giving a try at the very least! I love Amazon gift cards. ^_^

  165. Hydra says

    hmmm, not too interested in swagbucks. seems like another pull into my life/timesucker/all they want is my demographics. But I would love an amazon gift card! Thanks. :)

  166. Christina says

    I love swagbucks! I sometimes go for the special offers because the swagbucks payout makes the actual product a steal! I also search A TON for school, so I’m earning swagbucks like crazy!

  167. Terri W. says

    I love swagbucks! I get Amazon cards or PayPal. It doesn’t take very long to add up points! I have gotten $50.00 worth since the beginning of the year!

  168. Kelly says

    I signed up for Swagbucks after your last post. I am not too handy with it yet, but I almost have enough for my first gift card! Woo hoo!

  169. Rebecca B. A. R. says

    I totally love swagbucks and have earned a couple hundred dollars worth of amazon gift cards from it since I’ve started using it. So glad I read about it on your blog and Katy’s the non-consumer advocate blog.

  170. Christy says

    I would like an Amazon gift card! I have looked into swagbucks but my computer tech-y husband doesn’t like how it searches; does your husband like or dislike sawgbucks? I know he is a computer guy. Thanks!

  171. Megan M. says

    I use Swagbucks cards to buy books from Amazon! (I think I started my account after your endorsement actually.) Thanks for the contest.

  172. Kathleen says

    I have collected swagbucks for quite a while. I usually get them from searching because I don’t understand how to get them in other ways.

  173. Alyson says

    I try to earn one $5 Amazon card every month from SB. It isn’t too difficult; I just make sure to earn at least 15 swagbucks everyday.

  174. Liz says

    Yeah for swagbucks, and Amazon gift cards! I’m currently way busy with school to keep up with swagbucks, but the extra bit I earned when I did was really nice!

  175. Susan C. says

    Just happened upon your great blog site in my search for options for “no cable TV” and am impressed with your content here. Love being frugal, so consider me a new fan.
    I’m also going to sign up for the swagbucks! Thanks.

  176. Katrina says

    I’d love to win a gift card from Amazon. I try to earn swag bucks by just doing searchs on my favorite sites. I don’t earn alot each day but it does add up. I’m trying to earn at least one or two $5.00 Amazon e-cards each month. Thanks for the giveaway.

  177. Tiara Harley says

    I’ve never heard of swag bucks before! But think I will go sign up…
    However I do have a shopkick account, which is similar, you earn points to get gift cards and such…thanks for the chance to win;)

  178. bekah says

    Going to sign up right now. Have read about Swagbucks before, but never remembered to actually sign up. Free money?! Yes, please!

  179. Dawn says

    Love your blog. You know, I keep hearing about Swagbucks! Sounds like I should check it out for myself. Thanks for the chance at an Amazon gift card, I’m an Amazon junkie!

  180. Rose Hand says

    I LOVE swag bucks!! Have gotten over $70 in walmart cards since nov 2012 : ) Am now working on a $25 paypal pymt!! Would love the amazon card too. We buy from there a LOT!!

  181. Michelle says

    I have a Swagbucks account that I used for a while, then went back into my old browser routine. Should I mention I forgot my password? Got back on the ball and now I use it all the time. The Swagbucks are adding up! I have enough for some small gift cards, but decided to work toward something bigger. I’m already half way there!

  182. Sarah says

    I love Swagbucks!! I too redeem them for amazon gift cards….they are absolutely one of the best rewards programs out there :)

  183. Sherri says

    I signed up for Swagbucks last time I read about it on your blog, but it was WAY too confusing for me. I must have a mental block or something but I just didn’t get it. Anyone out there able to get me over the understanding hump so I can take advantage of this too?

  184. Kim C says

    I have a Kindle so I can always use an Amazon gift card! I haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet, though I’ve been meaning too. Thank you for the review.
    I’ll go do it today!

  185. Michelle W says

    I would LOVE to win an Amazon gift card! I’ve never tried ebates or Swagbucks because I really don’t buy much online other than used textbooks but I think I’ll look into it.

  186. Stefanie says

    An Amazon giftcard would be really helpful these days… for some reason most of our warm weather fun stuff (outside and pool toys, etc) all need to be replaced this year. Guess we had too much fun last summer :)

  187. Rebecca K. says

    Well who wouldn’t love a free gift card?! I have been using swagbucks, but I am relatively new to it so I don’t have a lot to say about it just yet…

  188. Hilary says

    I always use my swagbucks for Amazon gift cards too. I’ve got many a Christmas present and “just because I can” type things over the yrs thanks to this site!!

  189. Brittany Boddy says

    I could really use this gift card because money has been super tight and I need a new memory card for my camera to take pictures of my two girls :-)

  190. Andrea Williams says

    I am a big fan of Swagbucks! I always try to earn between $25-50 every month to help out with Christmas or special purchases I might not normally make. Hope they keep up the great work and the fun.

  191. Lindsey says

    I am not very good at earning Swagbucks, not like the people who do surveys. But I have managed to earn a few Amazon cards, so I continue to use it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  192. EngineerMom says

    I need to do a better job at using my Swagbucks account!

    Would love the giftcard – we order all our diapers on Amazon!

  193. Katharine says

    I’ve been a Swagbucks user for years. I’m afraid I’m a lazy user, I don’t do any special tricks to accumulate points. But even so, I get Amazon cards fairly regularly. Yay Swagbucks!

  194. Erica says

    Amazon is a great site. I see why you would redeem your swag bucks for an Amazon gift card. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

  195. says

    I love swagbucks. I just get Amazon cards, then I slowly save them up to get the things on my wish list. If you have the time, the longer surveys are the best way to get big swagbucks. The easiest way, though, is to install the toolbar. You’ll get a point a day, and you can easily find swag codes.

  196. says

    I adore Swagbucks – one of the best rewards sites I’ve found! I’ve never been able to save up to $25, though every few weeks I can get a $5 Amazon card. The daily polls and NOSO really do add up!

  197. says

    Oh my , but I do love Swagbucks. I think just about every one that I’ve earned over the past year has gone toward Amazon gift cards! For me, surveys are the quickest way to pump up my tally. Aside from that, I tend to earn the most just from searching, and of course on special promotion days. (I love special code days!)

  198. Marianne says

    I have been with Swagbucks for several years. I love when they do the day long Swag games and codes. Reading their Facebook page is also very entertaining…

  199. Beth J says

    I earn Swagbucks just by using the toolbar…1 isn’t much, but it’s every day! And I signed up through Kristen :).

  200. Megan Bayford says

    I LOVE Swagbucks! I work pretty hard and have recently used it to buy the family a new TV & blu-ray player. We were stuck in the dark ages with a giant CRT TV that was about to die. My tip is to do your surveys early in the morning, as there tend to be more and their quotas aren’t full yet.

  201. Lyn says

    Receiving this gift card would be such a Blessing to my family. Thanks you for this opportunity Kristin.
