A Ragdoll Kitten from Swagbucking? What is Swagbucks and Is Swagbucks Legit?

You might have thought, “What on Earth is Swagbucks? and what does it have to do with a cat site?”

Well, it has to do with my journey – but it does fit!  I promise =).

When I started working for myself – my “budget” DRASTICALLY changed.  So I had to figure out ways to get the products I wanted for a lot less, since I no longer had my corporate salary.  So I learned how to Extreme Coupon (and several years later, wrote a book about how to get started doing it). While I was learning how to coupon, I was introduced to Swagbucks on one of the couponing forums I frequent.

Swagbucks is an online rewards site where you can earn virtual currency called “Swag Bucks” by doing things like watching promotional videos, participating in polls and surveys, buying products (cash back), and playing games. Then you can redeem your “Swagbucks” for gift cards to places like Amazon, Walmart, CVS and more.

So I started “Swagbucking” to get free Amazon gift cards.  Now, I am able to get about $70/month through my Swagbucks efforts – I didn’t start there, however.  I probably started at earning $25 a month, until I got better at utilizing as many of their offerings as I could.

So then in one of my Floppycats’ videos where Charlie and Trigg are doing an unboxing, I mentioned how I got the products that had arrived in the mail for free.  Then almost a year later, a reader contacted me to tell me that she was able to get a Ragdoll kitten from Swagbucking!  I share her story here on this blog post: How to Get Free Gift Cards for Cat Products and More.  It’s been fun to have a fellow Swagbucker to email with and share strategies, etc.  She is the one that really helped me get into their surveys, which I talk about in the video below.

So if you are on a limited budget or like to earn free gift cards for minimal work, here’s a video that explains exactly what I do on a daily basis to earn my Swagbucks.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comments below.  Of course, if you have any suggestions, please add those as well!

  1. Wonderful post & video, Jenny! Very informative to help folks who may be unaware of Swagbucks and might want to try it and save some money! I do Swagbucks (signed up last year if I recall correctly from a previous post you had written about it at that time) and MyPoints (although I’m more familiar with MyPoints as I’ve been doing that one longer). Lurve those gift cards that certainly help offset the cost of living! YAY! 🙂

    Big hugs & lots of love!

    1. Thanks, Teresa – I really love Swagbucks, so happy to share it. Hope other readers can benefit too – sure wish I would have known about something like this when i was in college!
