Mega Swagbucks Friday & Spirit Week is coming!

Posted January 20, 2012


It is Mega Swagbucks Friday! Today is the day they award larger than normal Swagbucks just for using the site to search as you normally would during the day. And, next week is Spirit Week with codes games and surprises! If you are not signed up for Swagbucks, you should be! It's a super easy way to earn giftcards to places like CVS, Starbucks and

Spirit Week

Swagbucks sent an e-mail telling us to "get your pom-poms ready, folks, because starting on Monday, Swagbucks is holding Spirit Week!" Even if you don't have any pom-poms, you can still score some Swagbucks to cheer about.  With this event, Swagbucks will be celebrating different holidays. Each day will be filled with codes, activities, and surprises and each evening, they will be announcing a holiday in their Swagbucks blog. I am not sure yet how the holidays tie in, but we will find out next week. Swagbucks also indicated that we should keep track of each day's Swag Codes, since we will need them at the end of the week in order to earn a big reward. Sounds interesting.

New to Swagbucks?

How do you get these super Swagbucks? Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine (instead of Google, for instance).  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 on Twitter or Facebook, Swagbucks also posts links to codes that will earn you additional Swag Bucks. Once you click the link they give you and find the code (they will tell you how to find it) you then copy and paste the code into the "Gimme" box on the homepage of Swagbucks HERE. The Gimme box is on the right side of the page under the My Account section where it indicates: Enter your Swag Code.

You are welcome to post links to these awesome codes (but NOT the actual codes) in the Comments section of this post or in the Find a Deal section here on the blog each day but please DO NOT post the actual Swag Bucks code. That's against Swagbucks policy and they can remove us both from the program for posting actual codes.  You are more than welcome to post the link to the Swagbucks page that shows the code though.

If you are new to Swagbucks, I bet you are wondering what you do with the Swagbucks points you 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 a $5 Starbucks gift card is 635 Swag Bucks.  It's such an easy way to score some freebies while doing the same searches you already do.

    I think I mentioned on here before that I bought my husband's Christmas present using Amazon gift cards that I had been saving up for a few months. I earned them all through Swagbucks. The piece of music equipment was around $135 and I still had a balance of about $20! Not to mention that I had purchased a few smaller things (like books) for myself prior using the balance. I counted up the other day and if I remember correctly, I have earned of $200 in Amazon cards through Swagbucks! FREE MONEY!!!

    Great idea, pss3!! You will have to let us know how much swag you get with your Swag! :-)

    I am starting to save CVS gift cards from swagbucks. We have a large family function in August and I am hoping to get all the soda, paper products and chips for free with gift cards earned through swagbucks.
