Mega Swagbucks Friday, new member bonus, Collector's Bills and Extravaganza!

Posted August 3, 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 sign-up bonus and a new mobile site for iPhone and Android users!

New member sign-up bonus!

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. If you use the Swag Code SBISONTHEGO when you sign up HERE, you get an additional 60 Swag Bucks on top of the normal 30 Swag Bucks you get when you sign up. That's a total of 90 Swag Bucks just for signing up! This new member sign-up bonus is valid until Friday, August 3rd at 11:59 p.m. PT.

New Swag Sports Collector's Bills

Swagbucks is celebrating the Olympics with a new set of 9 sports themed Collectors Bills. If you collect them all, you'll get 15 extra Swag Bucks. Three of the bills will only be available August 7 - 9. To get these Collector's Bills, just search as you normally would and hope you win one. If you win one, you will see a picture of a sport in addition to the number of Swag Bucks you won. I have collected 3 of them so far so I have a little ways to go. We have until end of day August 12 to collect them all.

Swag Sports Extravaganza on Monday!

On Monday, Aug 6th, kicks off the week with the Swag Sports Extravaganza.  You will have the opportunity to win up to 65 Swag Bucks. Starting Monday at 7 a.m., they will release several clues for Swag Codes throughout the day. Find all the codes and you'll earn all 65 SB. There will be more information on the Swagbucks website on Monday including a logic puzzle you can print out that should help with finding the codes.

Olympics Video from Swagbucks Staff - very funny!

The talented staff at Swagbucks put together an Olympics video and it is hysterical. I believe Hal if the guy doing the ribbon/tp twilrling so beautifully. He is my blogger contact and the person I contact if you let me know there is an issue. Click HERE to see the video on YouTube. I am sure you will be motivated to swim some laps...holding your dog.

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 Mobile Site Launch

Swagbucks has also launched a Mobile Site for iPhone and Android users! Now you can earn Swagbucks using your phone! You'll find more information on the Swagbucks website in the Blog.  There is even a tutorial to show you how to use the new option.

    NY Yankee, I usually get $25 CVS gift cards, although I have been alternating them with $5 Amazon GC's lately because I am saving up for a new vacuum cleaner on Amazon. Will be a while until I get enough but when I do - it'll be a free vacuum cleaner!
