Rewarding Moments: Michael

Michael (Swag Name: JerseyPatriot) is from Las Vegas, NV and has been a Swagbucks member since June 2009. Michael came to Swagbucks due to employment issues during a recession. He thought Swagbucks was too good to be true but quickly found that all of his earning on the site would pay off! He loves all the different ways you can earn but has grown to love Search, surveys and Swagbucks LIVE the most.

I began with Swagbucks back in 2009. The economy was in a recession and I recently lost my job. I thought there had to be some sort of catch that you could not just do what you would normally do online and get valuable gift cards, but I was gladly wrong. Over the time I was unemployed and then underemployed, Swagbucks offered great opportunities to get gift cards to buy some little things that I would have likely put off, whether it was a video game, a gift for a family member or friend, or just basic necessities. It was a great pick me up at a time when I really needed it. Thank you Swagbucks, for everything over the past 12 years, my family’s world is a better place and I cannot wait to see what the future brings. In those 12 years, I moved across county, got married, bought a home and Swagbucks was with me the whole way. I have been working over 40 hours a week for the past 10 years, but I still make time for Swagbucks and to sneak away from work for 10 minutes to play Swagbucks Live with Hal and all the other Swaggernauts.
