Swagbucks Can Now be Cashed Out via PayPal

If you're a HUGE fan of Swagbucks like I am, you're probably loving cashing out your Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards! Swagbucks has just started allowing users to cash out their "bucks" for PayPal prizes. That means cash in your pocket.

We're big Amazon fans around here, so we always cash out for Amazon gift cards. These can build up in your Amazon account until you're ready to shop. If you accumulate $25-worth of gift cards, then you can shop free AND get free shipping. Not a bad deal!

But if you need the cash, then the PayPal prize may be the way to go. You don't get as much value for each Swagbuck, but it's cash. It takes 80 Swagbucks to earn $5 via PayPal and only 45 Swagbucks to earn a $5 Amazon gift card. So it truly just depends on what you want and need.

If you haven't signed up yet, head over HERE to register. Then use the Swagbucks search engine to do your regular Internet searches. During random searches, you'll earn "bucks." These "bucks" can be redeemed for items from the Swag Store. You can cash out when you have just a few, or you can hold your "bucks" for bigger prizes.

We've been earning Swagbucks left and right lately! I recently installed the Swagbucks search toolbar on my computer. Now I can easily search using Swagbucks no matter which web page I'm viewing. You're already searching online, right? Then why not get paid to do what you already do?

Head over HERE to sign up. Be sure to enter the code CASHISKING (all caps) in the Swag Code box. This code will give you 3 "bucks" to start out with (new registrants only). The code expires at midnight PST on July 6, so hurry on over.
