It’s going to be a BIG week at Swagbucks starting today!! If you’re not familiar with Swagbucks, you earn “Swagbucks” by searching online and your Swagbucks can then be redeemed for gift cards or other prizes and merchandise. I typically redeem mine for Amazon gift cards. Last year, I saved them throughout the year and used them to pay for our Christmas gifts. This year, I have been saving some, but I have also used them to pay for some things that we needed like Pull Ups, batteries, a booster seat, and books for our family.
Swagbucks has great promotions starting today for new members and for current members! If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s a great time to join! New members will receive 30 Swagbucks just for signing up here and then you can get an 30 EXTRA Swagbucks when you enter the code (it is case sensitive). This code is valid through 11:59 pm on Friday, October 22nd.
If you’re already a member, make sure you check out Swagbucks TV, which is being introduced today! Find fun, fresh, and original video entertainment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on topics ranging from Health&Beauty, to Technology, Sports, Nature, and more! In addition to all the great content, you’ll be eligible to earn Swag Bucks periodically as you watch videos, with multiple earning opportunities and values every single day! And, for the first two weeks, they’ll be extending our referral matching program to Swagbucks TV. That means that you’ll earn matching Swag Bucks every time your referrals earn on Swagbucks TV! (Note: you will receive a bonus at the end of the two week period which contains the full total of all your matching TV bucks) There will even be special Swag Codes every day which reward people for answering trivia questions about the videos featured on the site. Swagbucks TV will be launched between 10 am and 11 am PT today, and you can check it out here!
If you’ve signed up, but haven’t really done much with your Swagbucks account because you weren’t really sure how it works, here are some tips for making the most of your account:
*Do the Daily Poll every day and earn one buck (you can access this from the link on the left side of the main page)
*Visit Trusted Surveys every day – you’ll earn one buck just for visiting and you may earn even more for completing surveys!
*Check out the No Obligation Special Offers – you don’t have to complete any offers, but you will earn one buck just for scrolling through them!
*Do a few searches every day until you win at least once. I search for things that I would normally be searching for online anyway and I have found that I can easily earn 10-30 Swagbucks each day by doing this. Your searches do need to be “natural” searches. If it does not seem like your searches are legitimate, they may freeze or even close your account.
*If you have a Facebook account, become a “fan” of Swagbucks on Facebook. Click here to do this. If you check out the wall, there are bonus codes posted from time to time that you can add to your account. (To add bonus codes, log into Swagbucks, and then click on the icon that says “You have X Swagbucks.” There will be a box that says this: Have a SwagCode? Just enter it here and receive your SwagBucks instantly! Enter your code and click GIMME!)
*Publish your Swagbucks winnings on Facebook – when you “win” a buck, you now have the option of posting your win on Facebook. It shows up on your profile and it’s another way to promote your Swagbucks account (and get more ‘friends’)
*Download the Swagbucks Toolbar onto your internet browser – Click on the “toolbars” option on the left hand side of the website after you log in and follow the instructions! (you will earn one buck each day just for using the toolbar)
*Post the Swidget on your blog or your Facebook page. You can download it here.
*Tell all your friends – When your friends sign up under you, you win when they win for the first 1000 Swagbucks (this does not include any Swagcodes that they enter)
I have found that I typically earn at least 30 Swagbucks per day just by doing the things listed above. That adds up to 900 Swagbucks in one month’s time (or 2 $5 Amazon gift cards!). I work full time and I only do searches from home (non working hours) and I’m able to do this, so it isn’t something that you have to spend a lot of time on, but you should easily be able to earn $120 in Amazon gift cards in a year’s time. If you’d rather have gift cards for somewhere else, that would give you enough to cash out for $100 in Target gift cards (these can only be used online) or for 8 $10 Starbucks gift cards. If your goal is to do a 100% Cash Christmas, this will help you!
