PayPal or NOT to PayPal?
To a number of people, PayPal has become one of the most popular payment methods when shopping online. In the SwagBucks Store, one can convert 700 of their points for a $5 credit in PayPal, and majority of those who chose this method have claimed satisfaction of their redemption. However, some people argue that using SwagBucks to get PayPal is just too expensive and they believe that redeeming Amazon Gift Cards would instead be a wiser choice. Personally, I think that the latter can save you more SwagBucks for several reasons.
Advocates of those who opt Amazon Gift Cards over PayPal will be able to save an amount of up to 250 SwagBucks per redemption. A $5 Amazon Gift Card costs 450 SwagBucks, while redeeming PayPal credit of the same amount roughly costs around 700. Considering the difference in price, just by ordering PayPal twice, you will be spending approximately 500 SwagBucks more. This would be like throwing away an opportunity for another $5 Amazon Gift Card.
Another advantage of getting Amazon Gift Cards over PayPal is the fact that Gift Cards can be legally sold online. This may be one feature that most PayPal buyers are not aware of. There are certain websites out in the open that allow these kinds of transactions. One of which is the widely known Ebay.com. Just by linking your PayPal account with ebay, then selling your Amazon Gift Card in their site, you can convert your $5 Amazon Gift Card into approximately $5 worth in PayPal.
In contrast, others may consider spending the extra 250 SwagBucks for their PayPal credits. It is possible that they prefer to directly obtain it from SwagBucks to avoid having to go through the hassle of selling their cards online.
Overall, I would choose to get more Amazon Gift Cards in the Swag Store, then sell them in Ebay, than to get fewer PayPal credits when redeeming them directly. I think that by going the extra mile of selling these gift cards, one would be able to save a lot more money in the long run.
What is your opinion in this matter?
► Do you think that by selling your Amazon Gift Cards in Ebay, one could save a ton more of SwagBucks than by ordering PayPal?
► Or do you feel like the extra 250 bucks is not worth the hassle of listing your items online?
