Easy to earn points... but takes a long time to accumulate enough

Advantages: Easy to earn points
Disadvantages: Takes a lot of points to actually get a voucher
I started using this site, which you can do internet searches and offers to earn money, a few months back and here are my views on it:
- It is easy to earn points itself- you get swag bucks (the points currency) for searching; 50 points for the first time and then about 10 for the rest of the searches you do. The highest amount I have earned from a swag bucks search is 33 after the initial 50. Also, you you can earn points searching around once a day. Daily polls earn you 1 swag buck per day and NOSOs (No Obligation Special Offers) give you 2 points a day. As you see, not a HUGE amount of points.
- You can also watch videos for points- every 10 videos get you 3 swagbucks. Not a lot, I know, for so much time wasted BUT what I recommend you to do is to have the videos page open on a different tab or window, play the videos and regularly alternate between them. This way you can do your work and earn (albeit a small amount of) money on your way.
- There are also special offers you can do to boost your points balance but the big earners are all things you have to pay for in the first place to get anyway, or take up more time than I am prepared to spend, so I do not bother much with them.
- Sure, it is easy to actually earn the points but to get only a £5 Amazon voucher you need 849 swag bucks, and this takes quite some time to accumulate. So far I have only managed to get £15 pounds worth of Amazon vouchers from here,but then, I am not a frequent user, only doing the polls, NOSOs and videos with the occasional search now and then.
In conclusion, this is a site which does not pay enormously- however it may be worth checking out if you need some extra cash and have a little bit of spare time in your hands. Most of it, especially the videos take minimal effort to do.
Summary: Worth checking out if you are prepared to take the time
