Another Swagbucks Swag Code until 6 pm Wednesday!

Posted April 27

Heads up! There is a Swagbucks Swag Code available today until 6 pm for 3 SB points!

The code is: LoveYaMom

Enter the code in the Swag Code box at Swagbucks.com HERE.

New to Swagbucks?

If you don't know about Swagbucks yet, it's the largest rewards website that gives people free gift cards for the things they do online (searching, shopping, watching videos, playing games and more). You earn points called SB for online activities and then you can cash them in for gift cards to places like Amazon, Target, Walmart, CVS, Lowes, Starbucks, Paypal, Bass Pro Shops, Kohl's and so many more! It's free to join and I have earned a bunch of gift cards in the many years I have been a member.

How do you get these SB points? There are lots of ways.

* Search online: Each time you need to search for something online, use the Swagbucks search engine on their website (instead of Google). I actually have the Swagbucks toolbar installed on my desktop and it places a search box right on my screen making it super easy to search. Every once in a while, they award SB points just for doing the searches I used to do using Google.

* Take surveys on their website

* Answer the daily poll

* Watch videos through their website or multiple mobile apps (I earn about 80 - 100 SB a day doing this)

* Use their online shopping portal (I do most of my online shopping at major retailers who are part of the Swagbucks Shop and Earn program (like Amazon.com, Kohls.com, Walmart.com and more) and earn Swagbucks every time I shop. Just this week, I was credited with 562 SB points (worth $5.62 in gift cards) for an online purchase I made a few weeks ago.

* Play games

* Participate in special Swag Code events

* Enter the daily Swag Code (which we usually let you know about here on the blog each day). Swagbucks posts bonus codes on their Facebook, Twitter and blog pages each day. If you have the Swagbucks Mobile App, it will buzz when there is a new code. When the code becomes available each day, one of us posts it here on the blog so we can all get it. The codes are only valid for an hour usually. Once you get the code, you then copy and paste the code into the Swag Code box at the top of the homepage of Swagbucks.com. Look for the circle with the words Swag Code next to it.

New member bonus Swagbucks sign-up code!

As I posted above, new members get a 70 SB bonus when you sign up HERE. To get the bonus SB points, click the text that reads "I have a sign up code" during registration and then enter the code: SMARTSHOPPER to get the bonus. Make sure you use all caps since it is case sensitive.

How I earn Swagbucks every day

Swagbucks can take up as little or as much time as you want. Most of the activities I chose to do are ones I can do passively while I am working because I don’t have a bunch of time to devote to it.

When you make your 1st Daily Goal you get an additional bonus and my goal each day is to reach my 1st goal. It’s usually between 90 and 105 SB per day. I usually don’t get enough SB in a day to make my 2nd goal. If you make your 1st goal all month long, you get an additional 300 SB at the beginning of the next month in addition to the daily goal bonus you make for each day you make your goal.

These are the activities I do every day and get about 100 SB each day doing them.

* Running videos on my phone through the Swagbucks App (you can earn up to 36 SB per day)

*Running videos through Watch on my desktop computer (you can earn something like 500 per day but I get about 50 - 70 per day)

* Take the Daily Poll for 1 SB (link is on the homepage on the left side)

* Go through the Daily Offers (NOSO offers) every day (2 SB). For NOSO, I just click More Deals to move on to the next one (unless I see one I want to sign up for). The link for NOSO is on the homepage on the left side.

*Enter the daily Swag Code for 2 – 4 SB each day. They usually post it on their Facebook page sometime between 12 noon and 7 pm on the hour. I have the Swagbucks app and it buzzes when there is a new code. EVen if I am not t my computer, I can enter it in the Swagbucks Mobile App and still get the points. Every Monday, the code is only available to enter in teh Mobile App.

*I was doing nCraves every day for many more SB’s but for the last few weeks, I have not had any nCraves available, unfortunately. I am hoping they come back soon. They are located in the Watch section and it’s faster to get SB points with nCraves than it is with Watch videos.

* Before I shop online anywhere, I first go to Swagbucks Shop to see if they are a Swagbucks participating store. If so, I buy through the Swagbucks portal to earn SB points just by making purchases I already planned to make. I’ll be getting back 288 SB points in the next week from a purchase I made online a few weeks ago at Amazon. The stores I usually shop online through Swagbucks are Amazon, Kohl’s, Walmart, and Groupon. They have hundreds of different participating merchants from travel sites to retailers and more.

Some people have good luck with the surveys, which can pay out big SB points. I usually get disqualified and I don’t really have any time for taking surveys these days so I stopped doing them. I found that many of the surveys take way too long to get through the qualifying questions before you can even see if you qualify to take the real survey.

I also go to the Discover section when I have extra time to see if there are any offers I want to do in the Radium One, Trial Pay or OfferToro section. There are usually a few articles in the Radium One section that only require you to click on them to get the 1 SB. Those are usually ones that have Article or Therapy in the title like the Insulin Therapy one today or the Fighting Diabetes Article today. Most of them require too much time to click through all the screens to be worth my time. And the ones with a required Captcha at the end often don’t credit for me so I don’t do those anymore.

I hope that helps to get you started! Have fun and good luck!

    Dang - I missed this one. I have never been able to copy and pasta a Swag Code. On the stealth code earlier, you had to include the word "stealthy" and then the individual code. It was very case sensitive.

    grafted - I just heard back from SB and they sent your comment to the Swag Code people to give them a heads up. Here is their suggestion for future codes:

    "Apparently something that happens when people copy is they accidentally grab an extra space after the code. Also, if it's hand-typed properly and you still get an "invalid" message, you can just refresh the page."

    We'll see if that works for the next stealth code. Hopefully the next one will not be so "stealthy"...

    Thanks, Faye. I submitted a ticket for help as well; from the comments under the blog post I gather there are a lot of swaggers having the same issue.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Apr 27, 2016

    grafted - I will pass on your feedback to my blogger contact. Thanks for letting me know.

  • grafted Apr 27, 2016

    Copy & paste doesn't work for me and I typed it in by hand 3 times (while looking at it on the page) and it kept saying the code was "invalid". So - not real jazzed about this new method at the moment...

    ascherer - Glad you got it. This Stealth Code option requires some extra steps, but it's not too irritating.

  • ascherer Apr 27, 2016

    I got mine. Thanks

    So this is an interesting new way to get Swag Codes. I guess they are trying to drive more traffic to their website by giving out a unique code for each person that cannot be shared.
