Swagbucks

If you use swagbucks how do you use them towards your Disney trip? I was thinking of cashing mine in for Landry's gift cards to use at T-Rex or Rainforest Cafe. Then I saw that you can use them for Target too so I'm thinking Disney gift cards. How do you use yours?

The Target cards from Swagbucks are e -ones that can't be printed for use in store. I used mine to buy a regular Target gift card which was mailed to me then I could buy a Disney gift card with it.

The $5 Amazon cards are the best deal on Swagbucks so I buy those and then when I purchase things for others I get the cash for them (ie I do Christmas shopping for my non computer savvy mom or buy things for my 85 year old grandma).

cash, baby

I just get paypal. You have to wait longer to cash out that way but it's straight up money that way. The only good deal I have seen are the amazon egiftcards so if you can make that work for you, great - but for me, it's better to have it sent to paypal and then from there, deposit into my bank account.

For saving specifically for our trips I do Southwest gift cards. I do MyPoints for Landry cards.

For previous trips I have used their Amazon cards - got a new camera, camera bag, sandals, ear protection muffs for DD, carry-on suitcase (this was my latest purchase ), got some puzzle/game books for travel day and other things like that. So, if you need to buy anything for the trip I would check out Amazon since you get more for your Swagbuck there

I do not like to do Paypal because I would end up spending it on something else. I sell on Ebay so PP is how I get paid and is what I use for everyday expenses. I could transfer the money to our savings account and take it out to put in our money jar at home but that is just too much of a hassle. With the gift cards I know they will be used and I will not spend them on something else.

While we were on the trip and I bought groceries at a Super Target with them.

However at this time of year, I redeem my swagbucks for Amazon e gift cards as yeah it's the best point wise and use them for Christmas.

I'm saving MyPoints for Landry's for our Downtown Disney night.

My Swagbucks are going to be used for Amazon.

We do Swagbucks from the UK and we have very limited options as far as the gift cards are concerned. If we were still living in the US I would probably cash in for Target. But we plan on cashing in for Paypal and then using that to buy Disney gift cards on the Disney Store website.

It's a program where you get points for clicking links in emails, making purchases and doing surveys.

I've never used them to make purchases though.

I've cashed out mostly for Amazon in the past and gotten free printer ink at Amazon with my Amazon gift cards. I have recently just started back doing Swagbucks and cashing out to Paypal this time to help pay off our Disney. Certainly not much. But since starting back doing it I was able to cash out for 25.00 paypal in about a weeks time. It's been just a couple days since cashing out and I'm back up over 1/4 way to cash out again and should be able to cash out again next week.

Zoom bucks has a Disney gift card option in the rewards. The cash out starts at $25. I like zoombucks much better than swag bucks, I earn faster there.

Have you done this yet? It looks like it is an ecard. Can you use a e gift card to buy a physical one on Disneyshopping?
