How to Recover from Holiday Spending Using Your Phone

Did you find yourself spending a little more than you had anticipated over the Holidays? It’s easy to do, especially when you want to give all your friends and family the perfect gifts. Well, I have an easy way for you to recover from your holiday spending from the convenience of your cell phone.

Swagbucks is the web’s most popular rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online. Whenever you shop, watch videos or search the web, Swagbucks gives you points called SB. You can use your SB to redeem gift cards to hundreds of your favorite stores.

With the Swagbucks Mobile and SBTV apps I can use my spare minutes to earn free gift cards on my phone! Just like the Swagbucks website, I can rack up SB by shopping, answering surveys and watching videos. Here’s a break down of how you can earn your free gift cards:

  • While you wait for the coffee to brew, download free games and other apps through the Discover tab: 20 SB
  • During commercial breaks, take a featured survey or fill out your survey profile: 60 SB
  • While standing in line at the grocery store, answer the daily poll: 1 SB
  • When you’ve finally made it to the gym, watch style, tech and celeb news through the SBTV app: 2 SB for every 10 videos
  • Just as you’ve put dinner in the oven, your Swagbucks app tells you there’s a new Swag Code!: 3 SB
    Before you go to sleep, use the Swagbucks app to shop from your favorite stores: 100 SB

By downloading the Swagbucks mobile app, you can earn a free $10 gift card by the end of the week. Who knew playing on your phone could be so productive!

Invite your friends to download the Swagbucks Mobile app so they can start earning their way to free gift cards. It’s 100% free to download and 100% easy to use. Its available for both iPhone and Android devices.
