I have always used the Swag Bucks I have earned to buy Amazon gift cards because of the variety of products that are available. Also, their prices are often very competitive with the brick and mortar stores. I use the gift cards that I earn to buy gifts for my family, but the gift cards can be used to purchase any of the millions of products that Amazon offers. Many have found great deals on household, baby, and personal care products.
Here are a few tips to get the most from your Swag Bucks with Amazon.com:
Purchase $5 Amazon Gift Cards.
In order to get the best bang for your (swag) buck, be sure to buy the $5 Amazon gift cards for 450 Swag Bucks (90 Swag Bucks per dollar) instead of the $15 Amazon gift cards which cost 100 Swag Bucks per dollar.
Look For Special Offers.
If possible, make an Amazon purchase during a promotional event. Since I use the Amazon gift cards that I earn from Swagbucks.com to purchase gifts, I am sometimes able to take advantage of back-to-school and Christmas discounts to save even more on my purchases.
Check For Coupons.

Use Amazon Wish List.
The Amazon Wish List has been invaluable in helping me stay organized. If I'm not using any of the Amazon programs to get free shipping, then I use Amazon Wish List to save the items I want to purchase until I reach the minimum $25 order. I can quickly see whether or not I have the minimum $25 worth of products for free shipping, or when I notice a promotion I can easily reference my lists when I am ready to order with my gift cards.
