Make all that time spent online pay by joining Swagbucks! Members earn gift cards, cash and other rewards for easy online tasks like shopping, surfing, playing games, taking polls and more.

Every Friday is Mega Swagbucks Day, which means better odds of winning a ton of Swagbucks! New users get 30 free Swagbucks. Save up Swagbucks and exchange them for gift cards to places like Target, Starbucks, Amazon and Chili's. For example, a $5.00 Target gift card costs just 500 Swagbucks.

SwagBucks are so-called digital dollars. One Swagbuck equals $0.05. New users start with about $1.50 in their account.

We found that if you use Swagbucks regularly, that nets about $5.00 in gift cards a month. We like to redeem Swagbucks for Amazon.com gift cards which add up to a decent Christmas present for a family member at the end of the year.

Gift cards not your thing? The site offers thousands of other rewards like jewelry, toys and household items.
