Earn extra $ while searching the web

by Migdalia Rivera

As a Latina On a Mission to save, I try to always find ways to earn extra money. Thanks to Mommy Kennedy of  The Frugal Kennedys, I discovered a way to surf the net AND make some extra money in the process! I use Swagbucks!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Swagbucks, let me explain.

Swagbucks is a program that you can use to search the internet. The search site uses google.com to return your results. Each search that you conduct earns you “Swag Bucks” or points. These points can then be exchanged for products in their Swagbucks store. You can use your “Swag Bucks” for comic books, sports cards, T-shirts, books, video games, gift cards and so much more! I prefer the gift cards because they are just like cash. My favorite gift cards are from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Macys, Sephora, Target, iTunes, and Starbucks!  The amount of   “Swag Bucks” required for each gift card varies. The lowest start at  $2.

Each search conducted on the site also gives you an opportunity to earn random “Swag Bucks” in the amount of $1, $2 or $5. You can earn extra points by referring others to Swagbucks too. If you are interested in signing up, I posted my referral below. As a new member, you will automatically earn $3 by using my link below and so will I!

It’s a pretty effortless way to earn extra money for something I tend to do everyday anyway. On most days, I can earn a SwagBuck in the morning and another one at night. It’s also worth noting that only your first 20 searches each day qualify for the random awards.

Signing up will also help support Latina On a Mission. So go ahead do us both a good deed and earn yourself $3 by using my button below, then start racking up some ”Swag bucks” for your summer time pleasure!

Search & Win


Note: Swagbucks is available in the US and Canada.

Thanks for the love, Ms. Latina!

I love Swagbucks too! I actually use it to get to my sites that I use every day. For example, I enter into Gmail & Latina On A Mission (cause I drop by ALL the time) from Swagbucks.

My points just keep racking up!

My favorite Swagbucks gift is the Starbucks Gift Card. Since I’m more frugal than most, I go to Starbucks ONLY when I have a gift card!
