Little Extra Stories: Amy

Posted by on Mon, August 31st, 2015 at 2:50 pm

goodpeoplethumbAmy (SwagName dacutie) first stumbled upon Swagbucks when she was 13. She had fallen into a deep depression because she was constantly bullied at school for not having a phone or nice clothes and shoes. Her mother was a single mother and they didn’t have much money so things were really tough and she couldn’t do anything to help.

During her summer break before entering 8th grade, she tried to collect pennies and coins off the floor so that she could raise get enough money for a cheap phone. Then one day she thought:

“What if there was a program that gave you free Amazon gift cards and all you had to do was play games and watch videos?”

That’s when she Google-searched her idea and found Swagbucks (obviously she uses Swagbucks Search now).

“I was so excited that I cried. I had to borrow my mom’s phone and in 3 weeks I got a $5 Amazon Gift Card in my email. Now I have a phone and some clothes for back to school and the best thing is that I finally have good friends. Thank you Swagbucks.”
