Well, it’s not exactly money making opportunities but digital money making opportunities to be more precise. You actually are making digital money at SwagBucks which can be redeemed for products and merchandises. Again I have to mention that SwagBucks is only eligible for resident in the US, UK and Canada. Plus you have to be 13 age and above to redeem the prizes.
At SwagBucks you make digital money call Swag Bucks by taking part in some of the activities listed. The activities are just some of the things that you normally do online. Example of the activities are searching the website, taking surveys, shopping, voting, completing offers, trading cell phones, inviting others to join and many more. I think most of you already been doing all the above in each and different website. Now you just have to do all the above under SwagBucks to win yourself prizes, products and merchandises. In order to do that you have to download and install the toolbar so that you can connect to SwagBucks. Before that you need to register an account and it’s FREE. By doing the activities listed above you can win Swag Bucks ranging from 1~1000. If you refer others to join SwagBucks, you’ll be awarded matching Swag Bucks only for the Bucks they win while searching. A total of up to 1000 Swag Bucks can be awarded. Some of the prizes and products that you can redeem are PS3, gift cards, shirts, camcorder, cell phone and even iTunes downloads. Many of the prizes are limited, so be sure to check and confirm if it’s available. Another thing that you need to check is if the prizes are available in your country. Take for example iTunes prizes only available in US for the moment.
The concept of earning points and giving out prizes is not new. This concept often used in supermarket and credit cards where customers earn points by using the services. The points earned can be used to redeem products. I think most of us already familiar with this concept. I think as long as users are getting benefits of doing the same old regular activities, this concept will work.
P/S: I don’t think SwagBucks will go international by open up this money making opportunities to other country so soon. There are just too many regulations to sort out. The most we can hope for is waiting for a local company that is willing to duplicate the same concept and apply it to the local country.
