Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted October 28, 2011


It is Mega Swagbucks Friday and 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 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 ear 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 Swag Bucks 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 Amazon.com 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.  There are even more new gift cards available including JC Penney and Kmart.

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!

Halloween Collector's Bills

Halloween Collector's Bills - starting on Monday and going through Halloween, we'll have a set of 5 collectible Halloween-themed Swag Bucks that can only be won through search - win them all before the promotion expires and you get a bonus of 13 Swag Bucks. Users can check their progress by looking in the My Swag Bucks area of their account."

    drcyndi - I LOVE it!! That's a lot of SB's at once!

    I have earned 19 SB's this morning from searching and another 15 SB's this afternoon from searching. Good day for SB's for me!

    There is another points promo coming up next week. I'll be posting about it soon.

    Keep trying April - some days are better than others. Just keep on searching!

    ilovelucy - I search for stuff all day long on my computer so I search a lot during the day. I probably earn about 20 SB's a day searching. I earned 19 searching this morning while doing the Friday Freebies list. You can also send your friends your referral link (found on your swagbucks account page) and if they sign up under your link, you get some SB's when they earn them as well. I also do the daily poll. I also use Twitter for my work and SB posts links to codes on Twitter at least once every other day or so so I earn that way as well (when I see them).

    I earn at least one gift card a month worth between $5 and $25.

    The Starbucks gift card is mailed. The CVS gift card is printed from your computer. The Paypal is deposited into your Paypal account. Those are the only rewards I have requested so I don't know how the others are received. The CVS giftcard usually takes about 10 days from the time I request it until it is ready to be printed. The Starbucks gift card comes in 2-3 wks

    Faye- about how long does it take you to earn enough points for a $5 giftcard to say...cvs? I feel like it will take me FOREVER! Its certainly better than nothing...but I just dont think I am having much swagbucks success...either way...Ill keep trying. Also, do they mail you the giftcard for a retail store like that? I saw that for paypal etc. its a code, but what about jcpenny, cvs, etc.?
