How I get some free stuff

5:40 PM

I'm asked sometimes how do I get free stuff. Well some items are sent to me for reviewing purposes free of charge, some I received from BzzAgent or Influenster and others I buy on Amazon or other sites but don't pay for it out of my own pocket. I'm going to discuss briefly on the latter - how to get free stuff from Amazon, Target or Sephora using Swagbucks.

I love earning free stuff, who doesn't? One of things I use to earn free stuff is a toolbar from a company called Swagbucks. "Swagbucks.com is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive Swagbucks.com merchandise" - from Swagbucks website. I love their toolbar and use it more frequently than Google because with each search you have the potential to earn Swagbucks ranging from a couple of SBs to 100 SBs depending on your "luck".

Once you've accumulated enough SBs you can redeems those SBs for a variety of items including gift certificates to Sephora, Amazon, Target, Paypal, Walmart, Starbucks and so many other companies. I normally exchange my SBs for Amazon gift cards because for every 450 SBs you redeem you get a $5 Amazon e-certificate to use on Amazon. I've also exchanged it for Sephora which was more SBs - 500 SBs for a $5 e-certificate.

Now I do have to point out that sometimes the more money the gift certificate (e-certificate) is valued the more SBs it takes and sometimes it's not worth it. For example, a $5 Amazon is 450 SBs while the $15 Amazon is 1500 SBs which breaks down to an extra 150 SBs more since you can get three $5 Amazon e-certificates for 1350.

I've been a member of Swagbucks for over three years now and I've earned a few hundred dollars in e-certificates which I've used at Sephora and Amazon on a variety of products ranging from shoes to makeup to cellphone accessories. My middle daughter earns more than I do because she does the surveys and does more than just searches so she's earned enough for a new MP3 player, wigs (she's a cosplayer), shoes, clothes and so much more.

It's free to join, free to use and you earn free e-certificates to use on sites you probably already use.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation. I am a BzzAgent and do a few other survey sites (SurveyU and Vh1Insiders), but I'm always looking for new stuff. It's an easy way to get Amazon giftcards for sure. We will see how this one goes :D
