Mega Swagbucks Friday and Swagbucks Carnival!

Posted May 17, 2012


It is Mega Swagbucks Friday and the Swagbucks Carnival has started!  Today is the day they award larger than normal Swagbucks just for using the Swagbucks site when you search for information on the Internet. 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

Swagbucks Carnival and Monday Swag Code Extravaganza!

Here's the scoop on the carnival, which lasts through May 31,  from the folks at Swagbucks: "The Swagbucks Carnival has started, and it gives you an opportunity to earn bonus Swag Bucks each day just for earning the way you normally would. Check the meter on your homepage and you'll see you daily goal and how close you are to hitting it. Every day you hit the goal, you add to your bonus! As if that wasn't enough, you'll get additional bonuses based on how many days of the Carnival you're able to hit your goal!"

All bonus Swag Bucks earned will be credited by June 4th. If you hit the daily goal, you earn a 10% SB bonus of that day's goal value.

If that doesn't get you flying high on the Swagbucks trapeze, they are also having a Swag Code Extravaganza on Monday!  There will be lots of codes, lots of Swag Bucks and they are promising lots of fun! I'm in - what about you?  We'll let you know on Monday when new codes are available and where to find them so you can earn, earn, earn!

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.

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.

Double Swagbucks on Coupons: During the month of May, for every Swagbucks coupon that you print and redeem this month, you'll get 20 Swag Bucks!  The Swag Bucks can take up to 8 weeks to credit. Head to the Swagbucks homepage and click on coupons to print manufacturer coupons (from that you can use in-stores.

    Oh and PS, if anyone understands how to install this thing on something like your facebook timeline please email me. Clearly I am not talented enough to figure it out on my own. LOL thanks!

    There is a code on the swidget. If someone has a link to swigdet that would be good. I don't. :-(

  • JaredsMom May 18, 2012

    I'm sending out the vibe for a code too! I've been checking all day hoping for one!

  • HappyGirl08 May 18, 2012

    LOL, Thanks Faye. I have managed 10x 2 searches today. Not bad. Maybe I'll land one more before I turn off the computer tonight.

    I missed last nights code - usually not on the computer at that time.

    I did earn 10 SB's searching this morning, though. :-)

    I am sending out the SB code vibe right now.....

    I'd like us all to send out a subliminal message for a code. :) I was out last night and happened to think about it and check. I caught one around 8:30pm! Usually by then I'm in my happygirl pjs watching tv! ha!
