How I Used My Swagbucks Earnings to Buy Christmas Presents

Most of you know that I LOVE Swagbucks, and speak very highly of the program. For those of you that don't know about Swagbucks, it is the online rewards program that I have participated in for six months that let you earn "digital dollars" to be traded in for prizes. I always choose the $5 or $25 Amazon Gift Cards, and they have added up! My total earnings in six months is $180 in Amazon Gift Cards. We all know that you can purchase just about anything at Amazon, so this is why I choose to trade my earnings in for the Amazon gift cards.

This morning I had planned to go to to use my earnings to purchase the Christmas gifts that I needed to buy for my two nephews and niece. I set up my Christmas gift budget this past week and planned to spend up to $25 on each child. Go here to read about how you can set up your Christmas gift budget.

The total at checkout ended up being $64.00 but after using my Swagbucks earnings, the total was $0.00. I qualified for the free shipping on each gift and still have earnings left in my account from Swagbucks. In six months, I have yet to spend one penny when using the Swagbucks program, and have earned the $180 to spend towards gifts.

My goal was to get enough Swagbucks earnings to cover Christmas presents this year and it has paid off! You will continue to hear me speak often about the program because it does help others to earn gift cards and save money on items. It is a frugal and free way to earn! I have already several friends that have told me how many cards they have earned! It always makes me smile to know they are taking advantage of a wonderful program!

I am interested in knowing how much you have earned through Swagbucks or what you are saving your earnings for. What are your thoughts on the program? Please leave a comment!



  1. I've only been doing it for about 4 months and don't try real hard but have earned 20$ in Amazon cards. I love them

  2. I have been using swagbucks for about 2-3 months now and I've earned enough to get $15 worth of Amazon cards. With money as tight as it is this year I have been looking for ways to get Christmas gifts for my daughter. Its her first Christmas and we want to make it special for her. All of my swagbucks go towards Amazon cards and all of those go towards my daughter's gifts, diapers and hopefully to get her high chair soon.

  3. I did order a silly t-shirt for my hubby awhile back, but now I am saving up for Amazon gift cards. I am also going to use them for Christmas gifts.

  4. I love Swagbucks and have earned $15 in Amazon G.C. in 3 weeks!
