How Swagbucks Works For Me – Writergirl81

Posted by on Wed, February 12th, 2014 at 1:00 pm

Happy Hump Day, Swaggernauts!  Today we’d like everyone to give a hearty (pre-Valentine’s Day pun) hello to Writergirl81, from Parkville, MD.  Read about how shes’s using Swagbucks to get as many PayPal gift cards as possible!

Hi, Team Swag! My Swag Name is Writergirl81. I’m 33 years old, and I have been using Swagbucks for 2 years.  I was referred to Swagbucks by a friend who said it was a great way to get gift cards for things that I use.  I had just gotten my first Barnes and Noble Nook at the time, and so I was going NookBook crazy.

I redeemed my very first Barnes and Noble gift card about 3 weeks after I signed up. Then I discovered the PayPal gift cards, and I was overjoyed. You see, I have Cerebral Palsy, and I can’t work outside of the home due to a weak immune system. I get Social Security, but after my bills are paid there really isn’t anything left of the check for me to spend on groceries or myself for fun.

With Swagbucks, I am able to earn rewards and redeem PayPal gift cards which I can then use to transfer into my bank account, or purchase items and services online. Either way, I am not struggling from one check to the next anymore because I know I will always have some form of money coming in from Swagbucks.  My most recent goal is to buy a new play set for my Emotional Support Animal, Bandit the ferret. He is looking forward to getting that tunnel system! 

I hope you guys have enjoyed my story, and I hope others will see the benefits of Swagbucks from someone who does use it to supplement income, and provide for herself what she can’t get by traditional means. 

Thanks Writergirl81, for sharing this story with us!  Bandit is a cute little ferret!  We hope you reach your goal and he has some new fun toys to play with!  Keep up your Swagging!

If you would like to share your story 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!
