Mega Swagbucks Friday, 100 sign-up bonus AND Monday Extravaganza!

Posted December 16, 2011



Mega Swagbucks Friday

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. There are many people on this blog (including me) who earned enough Swagbucks to a number of gift cards that they are giving as gifts this year. 

Sign-Up Bonus - 100 Swagbucks!

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members usually get 30 Swag Bucks when they sign up, but right now, new members get 100 Swagbucks when they sign up  HERE and enter the code HOLIDAYSWAG during registration. This code is good through December 31 and is only valid when applied during your registration as a new member. If you have any problems with this code please contact Swagbucks Support (at the Swagbucks website). They have been asked to credit you with the 100 Swagbucks if they didn't get credited during sign-up using the code.

Swag Code Extravazanga

Swagbucks is going crazy on Monday, with more ways for you to earn reward points towards free stuff. First, they're having a Swag Code Extravaganza, which means a fun day where you can earn up to 70 Swag Bucks from 8 different codes throughout the day!

Second, there's a new set of Holiday Collector's Bills which you can only earn through search - get all five and you'll receive an instant 12 Swag Bucks bonus! The set starts at noon on Monday.

Finally, for any referral you bring in today through the 19th, you'll not only get up to 1000 matching Swag Bucks from Search, but 1000 Matching Swag Bucks from everything they earn (not including codes) all day Monday - they're calling it Mega Match Monday!

Three big reasons to visit Swagbucks this Monday!"

Another Way to Earn: Tasks

Not only can you earn Swagbucks through doing searches, watching videos and finding codes on Twitter and Facebook, you can also complete Tasks and earn. Tasks are an opportunity to do specific actions (called "jobs") and earn Swagbucks based on performance, accuracy and time spent. You can even bank the Swag Bucks you earn from a task if you have to stop in the middle and come back later. Once your task meter is filled up, cash out and watch your Swag Buck total increase!  They are pretty easy and if you have a little time to do the tasks, you can bank some extra Swagbucks.

    I just tried some of the tasks on swagbucks and a few of them were quick and painless but the one for "what kind of business is this" is time consuming! You have to earn 20 swagbucks for that task before it will transfer over to your account, I spent 30 minutes on it and am only half way. 20 swagbucks is not worth an hour of my time...not when I usually earn that from 10-15 searches!

    Oh, and btw...the "thingie" was around $120!

    I was able to buy my husband a piece of recording gear for Christmas using my Amazon gift cards that I had earned from SwagBucks! I still have abut $30 left on my acct too! :) Free money!!

    There are TWO new swag codes available right now until 5 PM. Copy and paste the following link into your browser to see the codes (Swagbucks won't let us post the actual codes or they kick you out of the program).

    There are 2 different codes on the page and you can find them under the white Advertising box.

    Then, go to the swagbucks homepage (link at top of page in box) and enter them in the Gimme box on the right. Each code is worth 3 SB's. :-)

    Welcome to the Swagbucks fun, delaneymoney. Thanks for using my link! :-) I hope you get some great rewards as well!

    Way to go, J! It's really so easy and I search all day for work anyway. Gotta love free CVS gift cards just for doing the work I already do at the computer!

    yea, faye!!! i have been searching for common things i go to all the time (and have bookmarks for already even) like "wral smart shopper" and get points sometimes that way in addition to things i just don't know and am searching for. i also have been enjoying the brackets they've been doing for voting on favorite holiday movies. i just started swagbucks maybe a week or so ago and already have a $5 card!!
