Swag Bucks

I was recently advised that I should join Swag Bucks. I was trying to find a better way to be able to afford date nights with my darling hubby. Our main excuse on not have date nights is mainly the cost of it. In one of my many groups on CafeMom (, I spoke to another mom. She suggested She briefly explained it to me and basically set me off on my own with it.
I'll be honest. I was skeptical about it. How can this site be able to help me afford date night and as well pay a babysitter? 
Here is a very simple explanation of how it works. There are many different ways to earn what they call swag bucks. The easiest ways is to download their toolbar, answer the daily poll, and to look through the NOSO. Then there are additional surveys you can do. I've seen people complain that they can never find any that they are eligible for. I have not had this trouble. If you use their search engine (which is part of their toolbar) you can actually randomly win different amount swag bucks. I've actually won 21 swag bucks recently. The NOSO are not obligated special offers. Basically, they are free offers. You do not have to do any of them. You just look through them and you earn 2 swag bucks. 
You can also earn swag bucks by shopping online with many of the stores they have listed. Swag bucks though can take up to 30 days for most to post to your account. I have shopped online through Walgreen's. I still have not received my swag bucks yet. I'm hoping to receive them by the middle of April.
And of course, you can earn swag bucks by referrals. 
That's basically the gist of how to earn swag bucks.
Now for the spending lol 
They have many wonderful things you can spend your swag bucks on. For example, you can save up for a Keurig. Of course, they also have many different gift cards or choose to have your pay go to your PayPal account. 
I've only been active on swag bucks for about a month. I have already earned enough points to request a $25 gift card to Red Robin. Woohoo! I'm still waiting on it. It can take up to 14 days for it to be processed and mailed. From what I can tell, I can expect it to go out by March 27. Since spending 2500 SB, I have already earned 1492 SB as of today.
