How it works

Unlike a lot of other websites that claim you can make extra cash and earn free gift cards, Swagbucks actually delivers. Since launching in 2008, Swagbucks has paid its members more than $400 million in rewards.

Swagbucks is free to join and there are a ton of different ways to earn rewards, so you won’t feel like you’re trapped in an endless cycle of tedious tasks.

In fact, collecting rewards on Swagbucks can be surprisingly fun. Some of the ways you can earn rewards include:

  • Shopping online at more than 1,500 retailers, like Walmart and Amazon.
  • Taking short surveys.
  • Watching video playlists curated by Swagbucks.
  • Setting Swagbucks as your default search engine and browsing the web.
  • Donating to charities like Save the Children and UNICEF.
  • Playing games on your smartphone.

“Just about every waking minute I wasn’t doing something, I was earning Swagbucks,” Elizabeth says – and her efforts paid off. “I was able to get enough Amazon gift cards to purchase my husband’s blood pressure cuff, stethoscope, first responder pants, and a penlight… and I spent nothing out of pocket!”

Unexpected vet bills don’t have to break the bank

Life with pets is unpredictable, but there are ways to prepare for the unexpected.

Fetch Insurance offers coverage for treatment of accidents, illnesses, prescriptions drugs, emergency care and more.

Plus, their optional wellness plan covers things like routine vet trips, grooming and training costs, if you want to give your pet the all-star treatment while you protect your bank account.
