I just started doing swagbucks again with some gusto this month, I use the amazon giftcards to help pay for my books for school (if amazon is the cheapest, it's not like I can't find something I need on amazon if they aren't) I wouldn't mind looking for another website as well, but like another poster, I only give it about half an hour a day, I don't have time for much else.

I do my points, quick rewards, and ebates; we like to get Landry's gift cards from my points to use at T-rex, straight Disney cards from quick rewards, and straight cash back from ebates.
Every little bit helps pad the vacation fund!

I use Swagbucks. I am not hardcore, but still get $25 in Amazon codes a month. Every bit helps!

I used to do Swagbucks, but it really fell off for me starting last August. I never got sent surveys, didn't get a "buck" for checking the surveys, if was harder to get Swagbucks for search, and I'm pretty convinced that Swagbucks TV is now a joke. No more for me...

But, I can recommend Opinion Outpost...made over $100 in a year, and that's qualifying for about half of them.

I get "sent" a survey maybe like once a month(?). I just go to the 'EARN' tab at the top, then to 'Trusted Surveys.' I just did one about Secret of the Wings for 200 SB yesterday. Sometimes I do those "special offers" for Hulu+ and stuff like that that has free trial offers, and make a note on my calendar to cancel before the trial is up.

Swagbucks lowered the 'price' of their Amazon cards for November & December, so the higher dollar are almost the same price as the $5 cards. This month, I've earned $80 so far this month. I may or may not have enough for another $15 before month end (depends how much free time I have, the month-end is usually pretty busy for me).

i tried doing swagbucks and it was too much work. i also got really mad i could do 95% of a survey before i was disqualified. that happened on another site with surverys and i felt like i was being scammed (felt, not actually saying it is a scam) because i could spend 20-30 minutes on a a survey and then was told i got like 2 points.

i use recyclebank and while the points and rewards are less, its far easier and more fun. a freebie blog i visit usually posts when they upload high point activities. i have not cashed in yet but in a few months going on maybe once or twice a month i have earned enough for a $10 giftcard. they also have $5 amazon giftcards. the only thing is points are more limited in the activities you can do.

I never earn enough. I feel like my time is better spent cleaning or doing stuff with the kids. Some of the surveys feel like eternity.
