Mega Swagbucks Friday and new member sign-up bonus!

Posted March 22, 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 AND if you are not already signed up, you can get a sign-up bonus of 100 Swag Bucks starting Friday, 3/23!

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 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 Bonus!

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members usually get 30 Swag Bucks just for signing up, but through  April 2, you will get an additional 70 Swag Bucks for a total of 100 Swag Bucks when you sign up HERE and enter the code MARCHSWAG during registration. The bonus sign-up code goes live at 12:00am PT (3 am EST) Friday, 3/23 and expires at 11:59pm PT on April 2nd.Welcome to Swagbucks!

    No problem jkay. Thanks for using it. :-)

  • jkay Mar 23, 2012

    I have a popup blocker - this is the only site that I have a popup problem and it just started with that Mazda ad!!

    Thanks so much for the link - now I'm a happy girl, too!

  • HappyGirl08 Mar 23, 2012

    jkay, try my link. Maybe it will work. I guess you've looked to see if you have a pop up blocker that you can turn on. That is annoying. I'm sorry!

  • jkay Mar 23, 2012

    I can't sign up because every time I try to get the link a Capital Mazda popup fills my screen.
    I close the Mazda ad and it pops right back up again.
    VERY annoying, so I give......

    Well, I've managed to make it to 65. I'm hoping to get a couple more searches today sometime since I've only gotten one. Meanwhile I'm out of special offers I can really complete and I don't even get credit for all of those. So, its more SBTV for me. ha! Maybe we'll get a code sometime during the day. Lately they've been in the evening after I get home but so far I've gotten those as well. Nice way to spur points build up to my next gift card. ha!

    I don't think they will keep increasing it or we'll all get too discouraged. I'm betting it comes back down some tomorrow....or at least hoping it does. :-)

    I just got on the computer for the first time today so I guess it's time to search for stuff.

  • drcyndimd Mar 23, 2012

    It sounds like everyone has the same quota each day. I wonder if a lot people hit the 100 mark will it be even more tomorrow? There is no way I can make it every day. Good luck to all!

  • HappyGirl08 Mar 23, 2012

    I know what you mean. I let them roll a little bit here at work from time to time but not much. During lunch I can do some searches on my smartphone and get points that way. Maybe I'll make it to 100 today. Here's hoping!

  • senglish27529 Mar 23, 2012

    HappyGirl -- at least you've completed the special offers early in the day, so you have a reasonable likelihood of getting your credit today. I'm always nervous when I'm doing those at home in the evenings, in case it takes a while to credit....

    I wish I could let SBTV play while I'm working on the computer at work, but I'm really reluctant to do that on the work computer. :-) Yes, Big Brother IS watching!
