Swagbucks -- a company that rewards people for online activities such as watching videos -- is getting some more real bucks of its own to play with.
"It's exciting when consumers can engage with entertainment, news and shopping and be rewarded for it," said Davis, who has served as Swagbucks' executive chairman since January 2013. "Heretofore, consumers were doing these things and enjoying it, and the sites would keep the ad dollars. The rewards are a nice little icing on the cake that helps families stretch their budgets."
Swagbucks, a unit of Prodege, has about 10 million registered members and has paid out more than $60 million in rewards since it launched in 2008. The company offers gift cards from online stores including Amazon, Target and Starbucks.
