Earning Free Gift Cards thru Online Activities at Swagbucks ~ Financing Shoeboxes Series Part #2

Swagbucks is a great resource for earning free gift cards to help with shoebox packing.  It takes just a few seconds a day online to earn $10 to $15 in gift cards yearly, but many members spend more time and earn that weekly.  If you have a little extra online time you can put it to good use to help you pack more or better shoe boxes.

Swagbucks is Available in these Countries
  • US 
  • UK 
  • Canada 
  • Australia 
  • Ireland
How Swagbucks Works

Swagbucks offers dozens of online activities that when completed are rewarded with points called SB.  Each SB is worth approximately 1 cent.  The smallest gift card to cash in for is a $2 EBAY card (200 SB), followed by a few $3 (including Amazon) and many $5 (500 SB) and larger gift cards.  For the best buy, save up 2200 SB and you can cash in for a $25 gift card.  Activities include watching videos, taking surveys and signing up for free offers as well as dozen other ways to earn.

Swagbucks offers dozens of different gift cards.  Many members earn all of their Christmas shopping money thru activities on Swagbucks.  My favorite gift cards to earn for shoebox packing include:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • CVS
  • EBAY
  • Amazon
  • Kohl’s
  • Paypal
  • Visa (for online shopping only)
  • JC Penny
  • Toys R Us
  • Home Depot
  • Kmart
  • Sears
  • Old Navy
I will be happy to write a Swagbucks 101 series if anyone is interested in learning how to earn free gift cards.  I will start with the quickest and easiest ways to earn and work thru lessons that cover the full gamut of earning possibilities.  Just let us know in the comments or on the Simply Shoe Boxes Facebook page that you are interested and I'll start writing the series.

If you haven’t signed up for Swagbucks yet and have a little extra online time you may want to give it a try.  It is free and easy to do.  With just a few minutes each day I have been earning free gift cards for well over five years thru Swagbucks with no problems at all.  It really helps us to be able to pack more shoeboxes.

If you sign up thru the Swagbucks links in this post Sarah will earn when you earn.  These are her referral links and anyone who signs up under her account she will earn 10% of what they earn (on most activities).  Together we can fill more shoeboxes for kids in need.

I'll be sharing some other ways to save and earn extra money for packing.  When the series is completed you will be able to find all of the postings here:  How We Find Extra Money for Filling our Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.

Happy Packing!  ~ Cheryl

Do they actually send a gift card to Walmart (and others) or are they all digital and must shop online?

I don't think they mail a physical card, but I know for Walmart it's a digital one that you can print out and use in store-I've used one myself in store to get Christmas Clearance, as has my aunt at another store or two, never had any problems.
