I have been using Swagbucks since the autumn of 2009. It is a search engine in which you randomly get rewarded for searches. You get rewarded with swagbucks that you can then redeem for prizes. I, for the most part, have only ever used my swagbucks to redeem $5 Amazon giftcards. Today I decided to try entering a swagstakes (kind of like a raffle) for a $5 Target giftcard, and I won! I think this may be the first time in my life I have ever won any sort of raffle or contest, and I am pretty stoked (and thus I had to share).
