Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted January 27, 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. 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

This is the last day of Spirit Week so I am hoping we see some fun codes! I'll post the links to any codes in the comments section below.

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.

    Wow! I just received 39 swagbucks for searching! In addition to the 10 this morning it's been a good day, and I was away from my computer most of the day.

    The code in the link I just posted is good through 5:30 EST.

    I have not played the games, buckjj so I am no help there. Sorry.

    I do watch Swag Bucks TV though and earn 3 SB's for every 10 videos I watch. I usually click on the video and let it play while I do other work. Then I click on another one and keep on working. Very easy way to earn a few SB's and I can keep working while the videos play. :-)

    I often watch the news videos (well, mostly listen to them) or the cooking videos. I watched a good cooking episode from Barefoot Contessa for Zucchini Gratin yesterday watching the SBTV videos. I then found the printed verson online and I'll be making it the next time zucchini goes on sale for $1.25/lb or less.

    Does anyone play games to earn swag bucks? When I play on my computer I don't receive any but if I play on my table I earn 2 bucks for every two games played (seems to be a max of 10 bucks per day). I was wondering if anyone else has this problem when playing on a desktop computer?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 27, 2012

    Awesome sandpiper and HappyGirl! I got 10 SB's for searching info for a blog post.

  • HappyGirl08 Jan 27, 2012

    Got that code so I'm up to 20 today. Not too shabby. I'm gonna search some and see if I can get anymore.
