Swagbucks is my new, favorite pastime!

OK, you may have noticed that the date on this post is December 24th - Christmas Eve. While I am writing it, I am thoroughly enjoying watching football (the Patriots destroyed the Jets!) and earning swagbucks through the nCrave feature. Pretty cool!

Why do I like it so much?

Here's the deal... I have been a member of Swagbucks since November 3, 2016 - only 51 days. While I do have some referrals, they haven't been very active yet. Still, in the relatively short time that I have been using the site, I have exchanged my swagbucks for more than $100 in gift cards that I am using for Christmas presents - and I have enough for another $25 gift card or PayPal! This site is amazing! I am really looking forward to Christmas Eve next year! How many Swagbucks will I have earned by this time next year? I will have a lot more time to earn more and/or larger gift cards that I can use as presents and/or use the cards myself to purchase items for gifts. Of course, another option is to, simply, exchange the swagbucks for PayPal cash! Given the results that I had in less than 2 months, I'm really looking forward to what I can do next Christmas AND all of the family and friends' birthdays between now and then!

 When I started using Swagbucks, I was focusing on the"Watch" feature. Basically, all that I was doing to earn swagbucks was through watching videos. Shortly thereafter, I saw the "To Do List." This list encourages people to do at least one thing from each category - Poll, Crave, Search, Watch, Discover, Gold Survey - Attempt, Gold Survey - Complete, and Deal of the Day. Here's what the site says:

For a Limited-Time Only: The Swagbucks To-Do List Is Now More Even More Rewarding! 

Complete any 6 of the 8 items on your to-do list and you’ll receive a 1- 4 SB Bonus Pay-Out

Complete all 8 items on your to-do list, you’ll receive an additional and even bigger SB Bonus!

So, given the potential bonus, I made sure that I completed the To Do List. Surveys don't always match up, so I can't always complete one, but I'll do 7 of the 8 items. Any bonus is better than no bonus!
