Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted March 8, 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 Amazon.com.

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 Share the Deals 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 Amazon.com 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.

New Member Sign Up

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members get 30 Swag Bucks just for signing up HERE.

    Just won another 10 SB's searching for a Zyrtec coupon to go with the freebie at CVS next week! Should have CVS deals posted this afternoon. :-)

    I agree Happy! By midnight I am fading quickly these days.

  • HappyGirl08 Mar 9, 2012

    I saw one this morning that expired during the night/early morning. I missed it of course because I can't stay up all night long anymore. Those days have long since passed.... LOL

    Just got 10 as well, HappyGirl! I never did see a code for yesterday. Hopefully there will be plenty today!

  • HappyGirl08 Mar 9, 2012

    Got 10 this morning. That's pretty good. Maybe there will be some codes out today. That would be nice.
