Mega Swagbucks Friday, Collector's Bills and new member sign-up bonus!

Posted March 30, 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! They also have a new set of Collector's Bills that can help you earn even more!

Spring Collector's Bills

Collector's Bills are special pictures that appear when you win some of the searches. There are 5 different pictures (including the Spring Cleaning one above) and when you get them all, you win an extra 10 SB's. There is nothing different you need to do, just search like you normally do and some of your search wins will win you a Collector's Bill. You can check to see how many bills you have won buy going to the homepage of Swagbucks, click on My Swagbucks (in drop-down menu under your name) and then click on Collector's Bills. You have until April 3rd to collect them all. The bills are worth different Swag Bucks amounts including 7, 9, 11, 12 and 15 Swag Bucks. So far, I have won the 7 and 11 Collector's Bills. Actually, I have won the 7 SB Spring Cleaning bill several times. Wonder if that's a hint to do some dusting!

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 expires at 11:59pm PT on April 2nd.Welcome to Swagbucks!

    That's great Faye. I haven't gotten any more since this morning early so far. What I need is some help from referrals. Anyone who would like to help a girl out, here is my link.


    Sorry for the shameless promotion; I'm desperate. haha

    Whooo hooo - just won the collector's Bill worth 12 SB's! 3 down, 2 to go. :-)

    You are all doing great! I am hoping for another collector's bill today.

    I signed up for swagbucks about a month ago after reading about it on here and I already have 200 swagbucks. I can't wait to win some bonus swagbucks today!

    has anyone noticed that once you get above 2000 bucks it seems like you earn more in swagbucks when you do win? I used to get 5 here and 7 there. The other day I actually got 33. May be my imagination. Not sure.

    I managed to get all the collectors bills this time. The last few times I did not. This morning I got 15 on a search so I am hoping for a number that good a couple more times today. The daily bonus goal is 120. They are trying my patience. haha
