Am I the only one who didn't know about Swagbucks?

Caroline posted on January Moms last night about Swagbucks and almost everyone responded with, "yes, I love swagbucks!" I felt out of the loop, given that I had never heard of them before.

Search & Win

Here is her explanation of what Swagbucks is (I hope it's okay I cut & pasted this, C):
"It's basically a program where you use their search engine and are randomly rewarded with 'swagbucks' which you can then trade in for stuff. I think the consensus is that the $5 Amazon.com giftcard for 450 swagbucks is the best deal.

I basically search a few random terms every few hours until I get swagbucks (usually 7-12 swagbucks per "win"). You can get extra swagbucks for doing surveys and polls. And sometimes they post random codes on Facebook that are good for a few hours.

As a deskmonkey who's on her PC all day anyway, it's really no effort for me and it took me about 2 weeks to get my first $5 Amazon.com giftcard.
"

So I jumped on the bandwagon and signed up. My first search, which was "tidy cats coupons" got me 11 swagbucks. LOL. I am hoping they add up fast since I have a feeling there will be quite a few things left on our Amazon.com registry after our baby showers next weekend.

Please tell me that I wasn't the only one who didn't know about this. If you'd like to sign up, the website is Swagbucks.com.

i use swagbucks the surveys sometimes piss me off because you answer a ton of questions and then suddenly you dont qualify. ive only had about 3 successful surveys that went all the way through. so that is aggravating. but i just use swagbucks to search and then on fridays they tend to give out more..
