I have been mentioning how I've been spending my Swagbucks to buy Amazon Gift Cards. But I realized that you may be wondering why I've chosen Amazon Gift Cards. And there is really a simple explanation. They are cheap. They are the best valued gift card in the Swag Store.
Now, there are other gift cards that are a better value. But those are what I would consider not-real gift cards. The stores might be sketchy or just useless to me. But Amazon Gift Cards have great value. The $5 Amazon Gift Cards are 450 Swagbucks. When you divide that all out, it means that each Swagbuck is more then a cent. That's pretty good considering how easy it is to make each Swagbuck.
It's also cheaper to buy through Amazon then to redeem for a prize in the store usually. So redeeming for the Amazon Gift Cards is the best way to make money through Swagbucks. That's obviously my opinion and may not be what other people think. But it's the way I've earned my money on Swagbucks.
Any other amount of Amazon Gift Card is the usual 1 Swagbuck = 1 Cent of the Gift Card. So the $5 Amazon Gift Card is the only one I'm interested in. After that I choose Paypal because I can end up transferring that money to my bank account and earning interest on it. Plus that money can go towards my Student Loans that I'm in the process of paying back. Trying to minimize the damage while I'm still in school.

I mentioned my goal in an earlier post which was that I want to redeem five $5 gift cards on Swagbucks per month. And you know what? I've already completed it for this month! Here are the payment proofs:
They've all been redeemed so don't waste your time copying them into Amazon. But I mean it's amazing. And just today I got myself in position to order 5 more in the beginning of next month. So I've decided to keep working towards a new goal for October!
My new goal is buying a Paypal Gift Card still with the amount necessary to buy the 5 Amazon Gift Cards for next month. That amount is 2,250 Swagbucks. Which means I will need 4,750 Swagbucks before the end of the month. I'm on pace, but I have to stay consistent and keep working at it.
Listen, I know $25 isn't a lot, but it was so easy! So if you are thinking about signing up for Swagbucks, please go through my link. I really appreciate it. The Paypal Gift card is going towards savings and college loans. Unfortunately that's what I need to put all of the money towards. But we all have our expenses.
Hope everything goes well! Tell me your financial goals (Swagbucks or otherwise). Even if you never use Swagbucks. Hearing other people's goals really inspires me! I'd love to hear what you have to say!
