Proven Ways to Work From Home (Part Two)


Today I would like to talk about an extremely passive way to make money online. I would like to say the only way it is passive is if you use this site the way I do, otherwise you do put effort that is not needed into it.

The site I am referring to is called Swagbucks. I know I have mentioned this site in the past, but I feel it is definitely worth mentioning again.

First I will tell you a bit about Swagbucks. This site is a search engine site which you win points (or swagbucks) by using the search engine to search the web. You can also win swagbucks by watching the videos on the site, and completing surveys that are on the Swagbucks homepage.

Now since I'm sure there are skeptics out there I want to provide my payment proof...just click on the image to make it larger.
That is a picture of the swagbuck or swagbuck points I've earned. This is not all of them, there are 98 pages of earnings.

The picture above is of some of the Amazon Gift cards I've cashed my swagbucks or swagbuck points out for.

I use swagbucks to get Amazon gift cards because I do not have a credit card, so the only way I can shop on Amazon is with a gift card. I have a kindle, so I usually use the cards for kindle books and games.

Now on to how simple winning swagbucks or swagbuck points really is and how passive it can be.

Swagbucks offers a toolbar which you can download to your browser. Once downloaded the swagbucks search engine is then in the toolbar section of your browser.

What I do is use the Swagbucks search engine for everything. When I want to go to a website I type the website into the search engine, hit enter, and find the website in the search results. The more you search the more you win. You do not win every time, but the more you use the search engine the better your chances of winning are.
After awhile it just becomes habit to use the search engine. It is for me anyhow.

  4. This is really interested. I have never heard of this before. My question is, can you use the gift cards all at once or only one at a time?

  5. you can use them all at once, in fact what happens is when you cash out for an amazon gift card they will post your payment in your swagbucks account, and it will show up as a gift card code. You then go to and apply that code to your gift card balance and you can add as many codes to your amazon account as you can earn on swagbucks! Your amazon balance never expires so you can also spend it when you want, which is great for me because I like to save up for higher priced items as well as buying books for my kindle which aren't as expensive :)
