Join Swagbucks, a site that gives you points for randomly searching the Internet, and you'll earn 70 swagbucks -- 30 for signing up and a bonus 40 for using Swagbucks coupon code BackToSchool. Join by Sunday, August 15 at 11:59 p.m. PST to get the bonus. You'll also get 50 swagbucks on your birthday, assuming you choose to share the date.
I installed the Swagbucks search engine toolbar and use it regularly to search the Internet. There's no formula for what searches will earn you swagbucks but you'll get them in increments of 1 to 20. On Mega Swagbucks days the increments go higher. You can earn extra swagbucks by searching for swagcodes (they show up in e-mails sometimes).
Redeem your swagbucks for gift cards (my favorite), back-to-school supplies, MP3s and DVDs, and much more. As an example, A $5 Amazon gift card is 450 swagbucks, a $10 Starbucks gift card is 1,300 swagbucks, and a $20 Target e-gift card is 2,350 swagbucks.
