Tips on Using Search and Win Sites
1. Don't OVERSEARCH- They hate this. Just search as you normally would....just don't search constantly for things you don't care for JUST to earn points.
2. Join Them All- The more you join, the more possibilities of winning (some of them reward with instant win prizes instead of points or virtual money).
3. Add their Quicksearch toolbars- If you are like me and joined them all, you can't very well have them ALL as your HomePage....so the Quicksearch bar (on Firefox, it's to the right of the URL bar) is the next best thing.
4. Search Every One at the Same Time- Open a blank page for each search and win site...type the phrase you want to search for in the quicksearch bar for Each site...click the search icon (magnify glass) and each site will have searched for the same item. That way you can maximize your searching by getting some different listings AS WELL AS possible wins on each site!
5. Refer Others- Most of the Search & Win sites will reward you for referring your friends...whether it be in points, or if your friend wins a prize, you do too!
