Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted May 4, 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

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.  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.

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

    I love me some swagbucks! Nice to see something online that ISN'T a scam for once. So far I've earned around 11k swagbucks and have got a $50 amazon giftcard. Im only 500SB away from getting another $50 amazon giftcard... been trying to clip off the rewards so I can get my giftcard! It can be a little work... but not too bad and I sure can use some extra cash!

    Just got 37 SB for searching! I think this is the most I've ever gotten at one time!

    Well, I still haven't managed to get any more search bucks. I did manage to get a survey worth 288! Talk about shocking. I never get surveys. I always spend what feels like 20 mins answering questions and then get "you are disqualified". ha!

    59! Wow, that's great. I got a 40 a couple of weeks ago and I was shocked.

    Same here - 10 on a search. I got 33 on a search on Monday and was very surprised.

  • JaredsMom May 4, 2012

    I got 10 for a search this morning before I left home. I don't do any searching at work, but I do keep a check on the codes. I'm hoping for one too!

  • HappyGirl08 May 4, 2012

    Well how is everyone doing this morning? So far I managed a 10 on a search. I'm hoping for more later and maybe a code!
