I've jumped on the Swagbucks band wagon. It's a search engine similar to Google but this one awards bucks that can be redeemed for prizes. This was simply for using their search engine. I added their tool bar to the Firefox browser and each time I need to go to a website I type it in their or if I need to do a search for something. It is an extra step but I've already gotten $25 in Amazon gift cards, so I really like it. They give referral credits so if you have not signed up and are interested click on the logo and I'll get extra bucks.
If you already use it and have any other suggestions on how to win bucks please share them!
