Stupid name? Yes. I agree. And I was a little skeptical about getting involved in this whole online phenomenon. Use the swagbucks search engine and win points? Go on little scavenger hunts for swagbucks "codes" and win points? Shopping via the swagbucks store and winning points?
Sounded like it would take too much time/effort and not be worth it.
Actually? It's kinda fun; and really not as excruciating as it sounds. And the payoff? Winning enough "swagbucks" gives opportunities to earn gift cards (the Amazon.com cards are my favorite) and other prizes.
I'm saving up my Amazon gift cards - real money, people! All for doing piddly little internet things - for something fun like one of these.
I'm telling you this so that you can sign up and win prizes too. Doncha wanna?

Now, if we could just figure out a less ridiculous name for this Swagbucks thing...
