Mega Swagbucks Friday, new member bonus & new promotion!

Posted June 8, 2012

It is Mega Swagbucks Friday and 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 There is also a new member bonus available and a new promotion -  read on for the details.

Dads Vs Grads Team Challenge

Make sure you sign up for the newest team challenge to earn more Swagbucks just for doing the regular searches you do all week! Here are the details about the promo from the Swagbucks gurus:

"Swagbucks is having an early summer smackdown as two generations collide to see who can earn the most from Swagbucks: Dads or Grads? Join now and start earning, because everything you make from the Search, Daily Polls, NOSO, the Toolbar, Tasks, SBTV, Surveys, Special Offers and Daily deals will earn points for your team from June 7th-June 13th. Winning team members who contribute at least one point to the team goal will receive 25 bonus Swag Bucks! Runner-up team members who contribute at least one point to the team goal will receive 10 bonus Swag Bucks! The top point-earner from each team will be crowned the Valedictorian or Top Pop and earn themselves a cool 500 Swag Buck bonus!"

To join the challenge, go to the Swagbucks homepage HERE and click on the link for "Team Challenge". Then click the Join Now link to find out which team you have been assigned to. I am on the Dads team!

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 Bonus

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members in June get an additional 70 Swagbucks added to the 30 you would normally get when you sign up.  This means you get a total of 100 Swagbucks when you use the registration code JUNETASTIC throughout the month of June!  You have to use this code during the registration process to get the extra 70 Swagbucks.  Click HERE to sign up!
