Swagbucks Back to School Promotions: 70 bucks for new members, 50 for current members!

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, then you know how much I love Swagbucks! 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.  I joined Swagbucks last January, saved my Amazon gift cards all year, and used them to pay for most of our Christmas last year!  I just got free Pull-Ups from Amazon a few days ago using the gift cards I earned from Swagbucks.  So, it really doesn’t pay off.

Swagbucks has great promotions this week 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 40 EXTRA Swagbucks when you enter the code BackToSchool (it is case sensitive).

If you’re a current member,  this week they will have five “Swag to School” Swagbucks in these denominations:  6, 9, 14, 19, and 23.  If you get all five, you will get a bonus of 50 Swagbucks!

Here are some of the other things that will be going on this week:

-Sales on all School Supplies and Cookie’s Kids items in the Swag store
-Special Facebook and Twitter specific promos
-A Swag Code Extravaganza on Thursday with no less than 5 Swag codes (can’t wait!!)

Here are a few ways you can get guaranteed Swagbucks each day:

*Click on the “Daily Polls” – you will get 1 Swagbuck

*Click on “Trusted Surveys” – even if you don’t qualify for any of the surveys, you will get 1 Swagbuck. If you do qualify for the surveys, you will get even more!

*Click on Special Offers. Then, click on “No Obligation Offers” at the top. Scroll through the offers (you don’t have to complete any) and after 5-6 offers, you will get 1 Swagbuck!

Here are a few tricks that I have learned to help you make the most of your Swagbucks account:

*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’)

*Read the Swagbucks blog (you can access this here). Bonus codes are posted here, as well.

*Sign up for the Swagbucks newsletter. They send bonus codes embedded in the newsletter, so it’s an easy way to earn extra Swagbucks!

*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!  I usually get one Swagbuck a day just for having the toolbar installed!

*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 searched 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 get started!
