August Swagbucks SWAGO starts today

Posted August 7

Swagbucks is hosting another round of Swago through August 10 and you can score up to 200 SB points!

What is SWAGO you ask? It's a bingo-inspired promotion run by Swagbucks, a website that rewards you with points (called SB) for completing everyday online activities. You can redeem those SB for free gift cards.

If you've never used Swagbucks, participating in SWAGO is a great introduction to the site and an easy way to earn a good amount of points quickly. See below for a new member sign up bonus code.

Here’s what you need to know to get your 200 SB Bonus:

1. Register to play SWAGO at Swagbucks HERE. If you don’t hit “Join” you won’t get credit for completing the action items.

2. Swago will begin on Monday, August 7 at 12 noon ET.

3. Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, earning SB in Surveys, or earning SB in nCrave, just to name a few.

4. Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.

5. You have until 3 pm ET on Thursday, August 10 to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.

6. Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value.

7. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.

8. The game ends Thursday, August 10 at 3 pm EDT. Make sure to hit “Submit” on the pattern you wish to submit. If you don’t hit “Submit” before the game ends you won’t receive your SB bonus.

Also, if you sign up for Swagbucks here this month, you'll get a $10 rebate when you make your first purchase via Swagbucks Shopping! You can activate it in the "Swag Ups" area of "My Account"

Get all the details and join the game at Swagbucks HERE.

Good luck!

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.

    I am signed up for local SB also but have been sick so won't be going anywhere either. This stinks because yesterday was our 29th anniversary. Oh well we are going away at the end of the month on a deal to Myrtle Beach. Should be better by then.

    Kathy S. - That's nice that you can use the ebay GC for the business. I picked up $25 CVS one for the last Swago board that I have already used.

    I am signed up for SB local but won't be going to any of the participating locations in the next 3 days of the promo so I could not get that one.

    Most I can get is 75sb for the middle row. I got a $50 ebay gift card since my husband needs a few things for business. Can't complete the whole board since I don't do the SB local.

    I just did the perimeter option and got my 10 SB points pretty quickly. To get the full board, you have to make a $50 mygiftcardsplus gift card purchase and I am going to pass this month. I've already submitted mine and I'm done with this board!
