Early on in my Swagbucks efforts, I had already cashed in several $25 and $10 gift cards for food, household supplies and pet needs.
By the way, I'd love to know why, when agencies mention that the average person spends XX dollars on food for the week or month, nobody seems to differentiate between "food" and what I'd call "necessary incidentals." What they never seem to calculate in there is the cost of TP, soap, dental supplies, deodorant, laundry supplies, and, well, you get my drift.
I try very hard to limit my food needs by doing a lot of cooking at home, from scratch. But those incidentals - they get me every time.
For that reason, I really have been grateful that I've found Swagbucks. The past two or three months, I've been able to avoid touching my bill money and I've been covering food and incidentals with SBs.
Slowly but surely, I am also increasing my daily totals and accumulating SBs more quickly.
What I've noticed is that we each have our own skills sets and comfort zones. It can take a while for each of us to discover which of the dozens of SB-earning opportunities work best for us.
Patience, too, is the key when dealing with Swagbucks offers and choices.
In the past, I've explained the quickest ways to build up totals, and I've explained some of the opportunities...if you are reading this, you are already on my blog. Just click on the Swagbucks topic in the list at the side and you'll see the earlier posts.

Back to my own experiences. Once again, I'm cashing some Swagbucks for a $25 gift card and I'll still have enough for $15 more if I need it. And, I'll be adding to that $15 every day.
What I love is that this is all free. I'm on the internet anyway. This is a far better use of that resource than playing Spider Solitaire or any of the Mahjongg versions I have on my PC. This way, I earn some SBs, then I tell myself I deserve a round or two of my fave PC game - sweet!
