Earning Amazon Gift Cards with Swagbucks


There are a few sites that I try to visit daily to earn rewards; one of them is Swagbucks. Swagbucks began as a search engine but has become much more. The Swagbucks site offers points that can be collected and used to purchase things from the Swagbucks store. They offer a variety of items, including gift cards to several stores. I stick with $5 Amazon cards because they offer the most value. Earning Amazon gift cards with Swagbucks is pretty easy to do; there are lots of ways to earn points, including: playing games, watching videos, and completing surveys. Here’s how I earn my points without spending a lot of time.


Change your default search engine to Swagbucks and use it for your daily internet searches. Swagbucks will randomly award you points for these searches. I prefer Google for it’s simple design, but Google doesn’t reward me to search. On Fridays you earn even more because it’s Mega Swag Bucks Day. According to the website you could earn a prize of 10,000 Swagbucks. I believe the highest denomination I have won on a Friday was around 50 points. But when you consider that it only takes 450 points to get a $5 gift card that’s a decent reward for something I was already doing.

Visit the Swagbucks Website

I try to visit the Swagbucks site every day to complete a few small tasks for Swagbucks. First I complete the Daily Poll. It’s a multiple choice question that you answer. Once you complete the poll you will see the results of the poll and receive one Swagbuck. This takes a few seconds to complete. Next, I click on the Trusted Survey page. You will be rewarded one point just for visiting the page. I rarely complete surveys, unless they have a 100% chance of qualification. Finally, I visit the NOSO (No Obligation Special Offers) page. Once there, I will skip through the offers. There are usually about 5 offers. Once you’ve gone through all of offers, you type a provided phrase into the box to receive 2 Swagbucks.

Daily Deals

If I am purchasing a Daily Deal from Groupon or another deal site, I will first go to the Daily Deals page on the Swagbucks site and see if the offer is available through Swagbucks. Lately, I have only seen Groupon offers, but in the past I’ve seen deals with other sites that were worth 450 points (a $5 giftcard to Amazon).


I periodically print coupons from the internet. The Swagbucks Coupon page is a great place to print them. They appear to be the same coupons offered at Coupons.com but in addition to the savings of the coupon you will earn 10 points for every redeemed coupon.

Entering Codes

On the home page there is a box for entering Swag Codes. You can find out if a code is available by using the Swidget at the top of this post. I also learn about many Swagcodes from the Swagbucks Facebook page and Swagbucks blog.

Amazon is one of my favorite places to shop. By spending a few minutes each day visiting Swagbucks, I am able to earn around $10/month in Amazon gift cards. Depending on how much time you want to commit you could even earn more. If you would like to sign up you can do so by clicking the ad in the sidebar. This is a referral link.
