I am generally suspicious about “free” things, and the same was true for Swagbucks when I was first introduced to it. However, after using Swagbucks for the past 4 or 5 months I can attest that it is indeed legitimate, and fairly easy to do. Mind you, I am a very casual with my efforts, but I average about one $5 Amazon gift card a month. So far I have $25 (now $35 total as of June 3rd) in gift cards accrued, and am saving them for a Kindle/Kindle books. In this post I will explain more about what Swagbucks are, how the system works, and how you can start getting free stuff for something that you probably do anyway.
