Mega Swagbucks Friday!

Posted September 7, 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

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 where these awesome codes codes are located, like their Facebook page or the Swagbucks Twitter page or the Swagbucks blog, but do NOT post the actual codes.  Feel free to post the location of codes in the Comments section of this post or in the Share the Deals section here on the blog each day but again, please do not post the actual Swag Bucks code. That's against Swagbucks policy. 

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 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE.

    @Shellycole, I'm a SB addict! ;) I've been doing it for over a year now and in 2011 I earned over $400 in Amazon gift cards. In addition to what Faye said, you can take surveys and complete special offers to earn SB's too. Good luck, it's literally FREE money!

    SHelley - you do not earn Swagbucks for every search. You earn randomly and sometimes it's 10 SB's and sometimes more and sometimes none. I search for stuff for work a lot during the day and I usually get points for 1 to 3 searches per day. Plus I do the daily poll, watch some Swagbucks TV and print coupons from to earn points. Hope that helps!

    Can someone explain the how you earn points by searching. I got the toolbar downloaded, but it doesnt seem to give points for all searches. I got 10 points for 1 search and nothing for the other 4 searches I did today. Is that normal?
