Sign Up to Earn Money (in your spare time) at Swagbucks …

If you never heard of “Swagbucks“; now you have… It is an easy way, in your spare time, to earn money by collecting Swagbucks; plus, not to forget the coupon savings you are entitled to (at popular name brand stores).

Swagbucks actually are penny payouts for doing various activities such as taking surveys, searching the web, watching videos, etc… A penny here and a penny there build up over time. Once you get the hang of Swagbucks it actually becomes quite addictive. Once you build up an amount of Swagbucks you can cash them out in the form of gift cards, as well as other options. In our situation (me and the wife), we go for the Amazon gift cards due we shop Amazon a lot. Don’t expect to become a millionaire, but not uncommon to earn over $25 a month (per account) by doing passive no-brainer tasks on your smartphone, tablet and computer.

Newsprompt Brings You Top Stories From Around The World

Newsprompt is a news aggregation service that I happened across that I think is a keeper. I could not find much information on this service, but you can either go directly to the site or you can set it up through the Google Chrome store as a “new tab” browser extension. In my case I saved the site as a bookmark. There appears to be no sign-in required; however, you can customize what news you would like to see. I am assuming the customization settings are maintained through your browser settings (i.e. cookies). Anyhow, good option for getting the news…

Newsprompt brings to you top stories from around the world and personalized recommendations just for you right in your new tab. Newsprompt delivers highly personalized content without you having to change any settings or customization. From the sports team you follow or the celebrity you love or the company that interests you, get the latest updates for all the stuff that you care about.
