After having many friends tell me it really is worth the time - I have decided to join. I will post updates here and let you know what I find, and if joining really is worth it.
You do get referral "dollars" so if you do decide to join, I'd appreciate you going through my referral link!
First - what are Swagbucks?
Swagbucks.com is an online portal dedicated to helping you earn digital dollars called "Swag Bucks", which can be redeemed for exclusive swagbucks.com merchandise. You can earn gift cards (Amazon, Starbucks, Macy's, Disney, etc.), PayPal $$ deposited right into your PayPal account, trading cards, electronics, the list goes on and on. The easiest way to earn Swag Bucks is by searching the web. You are already going to do this anyway, right, so just use the Swag Bucks search engine and earn swags bucks along the way. You don't earn swag bucks with every search, but when you do you earn denominations of 5 - 100 swag bucks (SB's) at a time! You can also shop their list of so many online stores and earn 2 SB's for ever $1 you spend at such shops as Target, Hanna Andersson, Mini Boden, The Children's Place, Justice, Overstock, Wal-Mart, etc. You can also earn SB's by doing special offers (and most are FREE to do) and you get LOTS of SB's when doing them! Now you can earn swag bucks in their Trusted Survey section. First do the profiles; there are 14 of them and they earn you 10-25 swag bucks each, then start doing the surveys. You won't qualify for all of them, but the ones you do qualify for can earn you from 50-250 swag bucks each! Giving out your referral link and having people sign up for swag bucks with that link is another way to earn swag bucks. Everytime your referral searches and wins, you get the same amount that they win up until they reach 1,000 in searches. So you can potentially get 1,000 swag bucks from each of your referrals!!
So - wish me luck in getting some real dollars here, I'm hoping to help fill up that Paypal account ;)
