Jingit and Swag= Free Money!

September 17, 2012

As I mentioned before, I recently took a lower paying job in favor of a job that offers more benefits and time at home with my kids, a decision I do not regret.  Not at all!  To ease some of the financial burden created by this move I have invested more time and effort into a few websites that a friend of mine shared with me.  She began using these sites several years ago as a way to be able to earn “money” while staying at home with her kids.  Because she doesn’t hold down a public job, she invests a lot of time into her internet, “work”.  I work a public job and can not invest much time.  However, I am still able to earn a few extra dollars using these sites, and as we all know, every little bit helps!  Check out these links if you want to earn a few extra bucks (and who doesn’t).

What you are about to read sounds too good to be true, but it’s real.  I promise!  And I’m not getting paid to advertise for these companies.  I’m just hoping to get a few referrals.


This one is my absolute favorite right now!  Users can earn up to $15 per week, loaded onto a jingit debit card that you can use anywhere that accepts visa, just for watching a few ads a day.  Signing up through your facebook account takes less than a minute.    Once you earn $2 for watching videos you can request your jingit debit card for a $2 fee.  All your earnings after that are free and clear.  You earn money by watching videos, click a button, and the money is placed on your debit card immediately.  New users can earn up to $10 per week, and for every referral you bring in your limit increases .25 until you reach the $15 weekly maximum.  Presently there are about a dozen videos, most of them being 30 seconds long, that you can watch every day that pay from .10 to $1 each time they are viewed.   Currently there is a box tops for education promotion, and many of the videos earn the school of your choice 4 box tops (or .40) each time they are watched!  If you have a smart phone you can earn cash through checking in at certain stores, such as Wal Mart, or scanning certain products in the store.  Even without a smart phone, reaching your weekly maximum in just a few days is easy given the amount of videos that are out currently.

The only downside is that there are not always as many videos on Jingit as there are right now.  Sometimes there are only 1 or 2 .30 videos on there, so you can’t max out EVERY week, but a lot of weeks you can, and on the weeks you can’t, you can still earn a few dollars.  You PAY your satellite/cable provider to watch the ads they show, so why not earn money for watching ads?  You can use your debit card anywhere that accepts visa.  A lot of people save their earnings for Christmas.  I use mine for those little everyday essentials, or to treat myself to an occasional lunch!  (Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?).

Click here to start earning with jingit.  There are videos on their main page, and also a lot of hidden videos elsewhere that can be found by doing an internet search.  Anyone over the age of 14 can sign up for jingit, even if you are in the same household.  I signed my husband up recently and on the first night he had over $5 in videos to watch!

Get your Swag On:

Swagbucks is the first site I joined to earn extra money, and next to jingit it provides the most earnings for your time.  Users earn “swagbucks” for doing various things on the internet you are probably already doing, like searching, watching videos, playing games, and, my personal favorite, printing coupons and using them at the store!  You redeem those swagbucks in the swagstore for various prizes, including paypal money or gift cards for various retailers.  My favorite prize is the $5 amazon gift card.  At a cost of 450 swagbucks, it is the least expensive gift card.  Also, I have noticed that it is the more “economical” for you swagbucks.  For example, 10 of the $5 cards would cost you 4500 swagbucks, but one $50 card costs………….I know swagbucks offers other store gift cards, and even a paypal option where you get cash, but I do a lot of amazon at Christmas, so it helps me to save.  You just apply the amazon cards to your amazon account and they stay there until you use them!  I can’t tell you how awesome it is to go online and order something and it be free after your gift cards!

For the first 2 or so years that I was a swagger, I primarily used the search tool and I earned an extra $50 or so in Amazon gift cards for Christmas just for searching the internet like I had been doing for years without getting paid.  You download the swagbucks toolbar and use it for your internet searches, just like google or any other search engine.  You earn 1 swagbuck a day just for having the toolbar installed, and then sometimes your searches earn you more.  Not every search is a winner, but at least one a day is.  Even if you don’t always win, you can’t beat earning money for something you were going to do anyway!

For your overachievers, you can earn more by participating in daily polls, watching videos (including non-advertisement ones, I earn for watching Bon Jovi videos), and completing surveys and special offers.  Also, for every person you recruit to swagbucks using your special link, you earn matching bucks for their searches up to a certain amount. The earning potential for swagbucks is limited only by the amount of time you are willing to invest.   Even if you don’t have time to do all the extras, using the toolbar can earn you some extra cash with little to no effort.
