It is Mega Swagbucks Friday and the Swagbucks Carnival promotion continues with a new set of Collector's Bucks (which earns you even more Swagbucks)! 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 Amazon.com.
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.
Swagbucks has released a new set of Collector's Bills which are five special, carnival themed Swag Buck amounts that you can only win through search! If you collect all five of them by searching as you normally do, before 11:59pm PT on May 31st, you'll get a 10 Swag Bucks bonus! Also, you can share the special bills you win by going to the My Swag Bucks area of your account - if you share on Pinterest and include your SB Username in your pin, you could be randomly chosen to win 100 Swag Bucks. I just won the Dunking Tank Collector's Buck worth 15 SB's! You can also keep track of how many of the Collector's Bills you have won by going to My Account through Swagbucks.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. 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.
