Why I use Swagbucks as my search engine daily

Search with Swagbucks for Free Gift Cards It’s not just about winning Swag Bucks that add up to free gift cards (although that part is pretty awesome)! I use the Swagbucks Search Engine every day because I get the best results. With the new Yahoo! powered search features I’m getting the links, images, videos, maps, local search results, reviews and shopping I’m searching for even faster than before. I like that the new search format is more compact than before – that means I can visually scan more search results without ever scrolling down.

If you’re new to Swagbucks, look at the bottom of my post where I show you how to start your Swagbucks account with 100 SB.
