Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted October 14, 2011
Updated December 2, 2011


It is Mega Swagbucks Friday again. Today is the day they award larger than normal Swagbucks just for using them to search as you normally would during the day.

How do you get these super Swagbucks? Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine.  I actually have the Swag Bucks toolbar installed on my desktop and it places a search box right on my screen making it super easy to search.  There are also a number of other ways to earn Swag Bucks including taking surveys, answering polls, watching videos and more.

If you are new to Swagbucks, I bet you are wondering what you do with the Swagbucks you can earn. They can be cashed in for gift cards, books, magazines, movies and much more! I usually cash mine in for CVS or gift cards. A $5 Amazon gift card code is only 450 Swag Bucks and $5 in Paypal cash is 700 Swagbucks. It's such an easy way to score some freebies while doing the same searches you already do.

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members get 30 Swag Bucks when they sign up. Click HERE to sign up and start earning!

    I have been given 21 SB's so far today (1 for loggin in, 10 for searching this morning and another 10 for searching just a few minutes ago). Like knowles, I usually get at least 30 a day. I have received a 50 mega SB and a few 22's from searching. Loved that 50 SB score!

    Happy2.0- I typically get around 30 per day. One for using the toolbar, two for following the NOSO path and usually three times daily I get SB's for searching(once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once at night). Also I get about 100 per week for coupon redemption. They add up quickly. When I print my coupons from their website, I write an "S" on the back. You get 10 SB's for each coupon you redeem that was printed from SB!

    I have a question...can you get more than one swag bucks in a day? I usually get 10 pts at a time but usually only once a day. I never get megaswagbucks. It makes me sad.

    Thanks for the responses. Silly me, I thought it would be available today & there is a specific book I had planned on downloading. At least I'll know for future e-cards & can plan accordingly.

    I so agree knowles!! I very much enjoyed the strawberry smoothie from Starbucks I drank yesterday for FREE with the gift card I got from Swagbucks. :-)

    drcyndimd - Congrats on getting enough SB's for your first gift card! If it is an e-card, about 10 days, as senglish already answered. If it's a gift card coming through snail mail, about 3-4 weeks has been my experience.

    Thanks for the help, senglish! :-)

    I have been using SB for a few months now, but just in the past two I have been using it for printing my coupons from and my account is jumping leaps and bounds! I have about $25 in Amazon credits now and am saving for a new camera. It may take a while, but this is the only way I would be able to afford a camera like I want! SB rocks!

    drcyndimd, I'm not Faye, but my experience is that it typically takes about 10 days for gift cards to be available.

    Faye,I just redeemed Swagbucks for a Barnes & Noble gift card this morning. This is my first time doing this with Swagbucks. I verified the order as requested. How long does it typically take for the gift card to be deposited into my account? Thanks.
