Swagbucks

Hey there fellow bookworms. Today I want to talk to you about an awesome program called Swagbucks.

I have been using this program for awhile and I absolutely love it. It’s time consuming but it’s super easy to earn points. It’s not enough to make ends meet without a job, but it’s perfect for some extra spending money. I’ve earned about $100 a month so it’s a wonderful opportunity to put some cash back in your wallet.

I mean, just check out the black and red checkerboard with a crown for the king on the front. The same pattern appears on the back, but instead of a crown for the king, it’s a joker’s hat.
