[Starbucks] Swagbucks - free gift cards and other prizes
This is my first thread start at RFD after many years of lurking and leeching! I think I have found something worthwhile to come out into the light.
Swagbucks is a site where you search which is powered by Google and AskJeeves. It rewards you by 'randomly' awarding you with Swag Bucks in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, etc. You trade these in for prizes such as gift cards from Starbucks, [rfdlink=3]Amazon[/rfdlink], Subway, etc or save up for big items like an Xbox360 bundle or iPhone.
I have looked around and this does not look like a scam and it has been verified by many sites. You can google Swagbucks, scam or something to do your research but it looks legit.
I have been using swagbucks instead of google for about 3 days and I have 40 Swag Bucks. This is a sample of what you can purchase:
3 SB - Valley Sports Card e-Gift Card (?)
36 SB - classic VHS or Vintage Records
45 SB - [rfdlink=4]Amazon.com[/rfdlink] $5 gift card
50 SB - Starbucks $5 gift card
25 SB - various limited edition music prints
10 SB+ - various sports cards
3800 SB - iphone
4100 SB - Xbox360 premium bundle
I figure if i use this for one year getting ~ 10 SB a day I will have about 3500 SB's and will be close to getting a free iphone. It takes only days to get a free $5 starbucks card.
You can check out all the prizes here.
You start off with 2 free swag bucks and 1 more on your first search (that is what happened for me). While you search, you can get randomly win Swagbucks in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10 or $20. Usually it's $1-2 but you get the occasional $5-20. Shipping and Handling to Canada is free.

Tip to get more Swagbucks / incorporate it in your daily use of the internet easier.
Change your bookmarks to Swagbucks search results of your bookmarked site-
A) you have a bookmark of Red Flag Deals with www.redflagdeals.com
B) go to www.swagbucks.com, type in Red Flag Deals in the search box and out comes the search results. Bookmark the results page (http://www.swagbucks.com/?t=w&p=1&q=red+flag+deals).
This way your bookmark is only one click away from your desired site and this increases your chances of earning Swag Bucks without much of a hassle. I don't randomly search the web all the time, so this is a much better way to incorporate it into my daily internet usage and earn Swag Bucks while I am at it.
You can also install a toolbar search plug in (like the google ones) for internet explorer or firefox:
You can not spam search with swagbucks, there seems to be some sort of time limit to how often you can win. Most of the time it's been more than 1 hour before I win again, but I have won once in a 20 min span. It's just best to incorporate it into your daily internet usage and forget about it.
If you have any questions, I will try to answer them but it's pretty straight forward.
