Mega Swagbucks Friday & Amazon MP3 promotion!

Posted September 28, 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. They also have an Amazon promotion going on that earns you free MP3's! 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.

New to Swagbucks?

How do you get these super Swagbucks? Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine on their website (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 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.

It's free to sign up for Swagbucks and only takes a minute. New members get 30 Swagbucks when you sign up HERE.

Amazon Gift Card Promotion

For the month of September, every time you redeem any Amazon.com Gift Card, you will get a $1 promotional credit toward your next song download at Amazon MP3. When you redeem multiple Amazon.com Gift Cards this month, you can get multiple promotional credits for Amazon MP3. That means if you redeem multiple Amazon.com Gift Cards, you'll be rewarded with the same amount of $1 Amazon MP3 promotional credits. For those of you who may have already snagged a gift card this month, you'll also get the $1 credit towards Amazon MP3 too. This offer is good for every Amazon.com Gift Card you snag until Sept 30th. Keep in mind that the $1 Amazon MP3 credits will expire on Oct. 31st.
