Today’s Swagbucks success story is from Melissa:
One of my favorite hobbies is taking pictures and scrapbooking. I have always wanted a nice digital camera that was a step up from a point and shoot, but I couldn’t afford a new one right away. I decided I would save up my Swagbucks to buy a camera on Amazon.
After a lot of research (I knew I wanted one that was less than $200, had a good zoom, and used a lithium battery), I found the camera I wanted to buy, took note of the price, and set my goal!
I do not spend hours upon hours on my computer a day, but I try to always earn some Swagbucks by doing the daily poll (1 swagbuck), NOSO (2 swagbucks) and through the toolbar (1 swagbuck). I do this daily right before I do anything else on the computer and it takes less than 3 minutes! Because of that, I earn a minimum of 4 Swagbucks a day.
I have also found if I search 4 or 5 times within 20 minutes that I’ll often get awarded anywhere from 6-15 Swagbucks (once I earned 25 with one search!) In addition, sometimes when I am just browsing the web, I will pull up SBTV and watch something in the background. This earns me 3 Swagbucks for every 10 videos I watch.
I didn’t get my camera as soon as I wanted one, but I think that patience is one of the many traits of being frugal! If you earn just 15 Swagbucks a day, you can get a $5 Amazon gift card every month! Swagbucks hasn’t made me rich, but it has let me spoil myself every once in a while. 🙂
Now I get to enjoy taking pictures on my nice NEW camera that Swagbucks paid for!
