You might like to donate money to your church or favorite charity, but if are living on a tight budget or are working hard to pay down debt, finding extra money to donate can be difficult. However, with some creative thinking, you can find ways to donate to your favorite charity and still meet your other financial goals. My favorite way to do this is to use Swagbucks.
What Is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is an Internet search engine that works much the same as Yahoo or Google. Simply search the web as you normally would, but occasionally you will get rewarded with Swagbucks. These can range from just a few to 80 or more. Let them accrue until you want to cash them out.
How To Sign Up
Signing up for Swagbucks is simple. Just enter your e-mail address and create a password or use Facebook to sign in. If you have a bonus code, use that. (Right now, if you use the code FINCON2012 you can get 80 free bonus Swagbucks just for signing up.)
How Can Swagbucks Help You Donate to Charity?
You can choose to cash out your Swagbucks for a PayPal deposit, and then use the money to donate to your favorite charity. For a $25 PayPal deposit, 3,125 Swagbucks are needed. If you search the Internet a few times a day, you could get the $25 Pay Pal deposit in 3 to 6 months. Yes, it takes time, but you are doing what you would do normally in your day anyway, searching the Internet, with no extra work involved.
Another alternative is to redeem for an Amazon gift card. A $25 Amazon gift card is 3,150 Swagbucks. I have done that before and then used the card to buy something to donate to a family at Christmas.
If you don’t have many Swagbucks yet, you can still use them for a good cause by donating your Swagbucks to Swagbucks’ donation drive for the month. For the month of September, Swagbucks is raising money to donate to the Humane Society. Every Swagbuck you offer for donation is worth .01, so if you donate 1,000 Swagbucks, you are making a $10 cash donation.
Trying to be financially responsible and donating to charity can be tough if you are on a tight budget or paying down debt. Luckily, Swagbucks makes it just a bit easier.
