How Swagbucks Works For Me – Aimsterz

Posted by on Wed, September 17th, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Halfway to the weekend! For today’s How Swagbucks Works For Me story, say hi to Aimsterz from Montclair, CA.

I came across Swagbucks by chance in May of 2011. I was 21, in college, browsing the internet for some good blogs and came across a review for a website that allowed you to make money simply from doing the things you normally do on a daily basis like searching the web. A hardcore skeptic at heart, I sat in disbelief and figured I had to check this out for myself.

I quickly signed up, entered something simple in the search engine and *BOOM* I won 50 Swag Bucks. What a way to lure me in! Ever since that first search win, I was hooked. I never aimed to make a living off Swagbucks but instead to redeem my points for some Amazon gift cards once in a while and eventually get myself a nice pair of Ray Ban sunglasses.

You ever lust for something that you know you can’t afford? We as humans tend to do that. Those sunglasses were it for me. I didn’t have name brand things growing up, and that was fine with me. I will be eternally grateful to my parents for having food on the table every night and a roof over my head. When you get older however, you push yourself to have the luxuries you didn’t have as a child. Watching my idols Paul McCartney and Freddy Mercury wearing a pair of these sunglasses made me want to be just as cool as them. I have to say, when I finally saved up enough gift cards it was a sweet feeling, I was so proud of myself.

Three years later, I am so thankful that Swagbucks exists. There was a period when I was unemployed last year and could not afford a single Christmas gift, this wonderful website was my savior. Now my next goal is to get another childhood wish of mine: Doc Marten boots! My story is different than most but I can assure you I am just as grateful. Thank you Swagbucks!

Thanks for sharing this story! Lookin’ fresh in those Ray Bans!

We would love to share your story in an upcoming post (and give you 500 SB!) Please send it to contests@swagbucks.com (include your Swag Name and a photo!). If your story is published you will be awarded 500 Swag Bucks!
